The single player Unreal games were great. Some times i think back to U2 and the great maps weapons and design it had.

without a decent SP, UT3 was just Gears w/o a storyline (or a lacking one). i would like to play a SP unreal tournament sometime. it did look great, but most of the maps were too dark for me.

How about they go back to the roots of Unreal, and bring out Unreal 3...this is the problem with UT, as they've been doing the game for several years, but have only given us two single player games: Unreal & Unreal II; it's high time for an Unreal III.

I've played Unreal, UT, UT2003 and UT004. When the UT3 demo came out I down-loaded and played. The looks were awfull! Dark and drab. And it didn't run very fast on my Athlon 64 3200 and GeForce 6800GT. I went back to UT2004. After upgrading to a X2 6000 and GF 9600gso I decided to give UT3 another chance. It ran faster and I found that I could tweak the graphics to look look way better. With the recent release of the Titan pack and improved menu UT3 is a different and much better game. I now play all the time.

Although I find the story lacking in creativity and utterly laughable, I will admit that the game itself is beautifuly designed. I've had a few hours of fun playing U-III and the game play is really great. It's sad, though, that there aren't many people who play it online, as it's hard to find a full-fledged game server.

Well this just raises a hole lot more questions that it answerws. Unreal has traditionaly been the game they have used to introduce their new technology and they are a company more important for their tech that they are their game play.

If there wont be any new unreal games for a while does this mean there wont be any new engines for a while or that they are planning on a differnt flag ship tittle?

 

On the other hand, it might be a few years before their next big engine release any way, I might guess for it to be somethign geared to the next gen of consoles. If thats how it happens, they may still relese there new tech on Unreal because the next gen of consoles isnt going to happen to soon.

 

This news could signal a new falg ship for Epic, or it could just mean there wont be more than one revision of Unreal on the same engine as they have historicaly done.
