A new Slacker's Guide fires off a review of Unreal Tournament 2004, the popular Epic Games first person shooter title brought to the Mac by MacSoft. The game features a variety of interesting weaponry and vehicles for the purpose of annihilating the competition.

From the review:

The Unreal Tournament series, possibly beating out the Quake series, demonstrated what imagination in terms of character and weapon design, level design and vehicle conclusion could do. If you ever dreamed of something or wanted it in a cool first person shooter video game such as monsters, aliens, robots, battle mechs, space ships, hovercrafts, all-terrain vehicles with retractable razor blades to behead enemies with, portable nuclear weaponry and targeting system to paint an air strike target with, odds are Epic had already included it or it was en route for the next version.

Even if games sometimes get the cold shoulder on the Mac, this wasn't the case with Unreal Tournament. Programming guru Ryan Gordon never skimped on anything in terms of fixes and updates; what made its way to the mainstream PC market also found its way to the Mac and Linux versions if he had anything to say about it, even if the patches wound up being a few hundred megabytes. Additional care of the franchise was also administered by MacSoft, which made sure the releases were as close to simultaneous as possible between the Mac and PC versions.
