Dreamcast's First FPS: Unreal Tournament

Many types of games have come to the Dreamcast, sports, fighting, racing, etc. But one genre that has not made the transition is the first person shooter genre.

Now Unreal Tournament, is going to the first FPS game to make the transition. The Dreamcast game will feature many things found in the computer game.

- New Deathmatch Levels. There will be 35 new maps specifically designed for the Dreamcast.
- Two Game Types. Deathmatch and Capture the Flag.
- Multiplayer. Up to 8 simultaneous players over DC's Sega.net.
- Weapons. 10 weapons including the pulse blaster and impact hammer.
- Advanced AI. Improved AI in level navigation, understanding of lifts, swimming, triggered doors and use of pickup items such as toxin suits and asbestos boots.
- Spectator Cams. Placed in various places in the level. They allow non-players to view the action.

UT will have no serious competition on the FPS genre on the Dreamcast platform until Quake III is released later. Will it be like on the PC? Or will Q3 finally beat UT in the multiplayer jungle. We'll have to wait and see.

kick - assthanks to whoever wrote this artivle cause UT kicked ass on PC. And everyone out there, IT IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN QUAKE 3 NO MATTER WHAT YOU THINK!!! Even the PC version is better than Q3, which when you keep playing sucks! UT has assault and good levels which Q3 never could make (level designers in Q3 must be pretty dumb). Anyway thanks for writing the article!

UT is the best 1st person shooter ever theres no doubt about that.I hope they can convert the perfect gameplay and the tension of the game on the dreamcast.If they succeed this may be the best dreamcast title that will be released!UT ROX AND I HOPE THAT IT WILL CONTINUE TO ROCK ON THE DREAMCAST!!!

Hier mein kleiner Beitrag zum Thema UT! Welche kleinen Wixer sich auch immer an diesem billigem Machwerk hochziehen denen kann ich nur herzlich raten ihr kleines Möchtegern-Spiel das nächste mal am besten mit in den Kindergarten zu nehmen und richtige HARDCOREGAMER mit diesem Abschaum von 3D-Shooter in ruhe zu lassen. Ich mochte früher auch mal UT. Nachdem ich mir dann aber immer sowas anhören musste was ihr WIXER hier gerade verzapft bin ich lieber zu den gescheiten Leuten gegangen die es nicht nötig haben einen so schlechten 3D-Shooter zu spielen der es überhaupt nicht verdient sich mit Quake III zu messen.

Oh and the Unreal is better then ut. For gods sake its made by epic, the best game they ever relased was OMF 2097 if any 1 can rember that game.Note OMF 2097 is a hell of a better game then ut if OMF have a 3dfx patch it would look like ut, thats how crap epic are they can even up grade there graphic's over time, just get a life ut fans and play a realy fps.

Quake 3...i suppose someday the rest of the world, well, its about 3 guys now, will realize that ut surpasses q3 in graphics, engine, multiplayer, bot ai, weapons, and front end...but maybe those 3 people really like those neat fake curves which is the only cool thing about quake 3 really...blah, how could people still like using the quake one rocket launcher, blech. p.s. blade? counterstrike is just a copy of rogue six anyway, and ut was in development long before cs.

truthfully, never played it, but looking at the options, I don't see how UT will wokr without a keyboard or mouse. However they did it, it won't be as easy to play as the ocmputer, plus you can't "add-on" levels to a console, but you can to a computer. That is the big difference. and that comps can be upgraded with RAM and such, comsoles can't. Over all, a good idea, but not better

UT or Q3A; it's ABOUT M---------ING TIME there was a good FPS on a console. As for controls; you guys ever played MDK2 for DC? They did a damn good job with the limited controls, and I bet Epic and iD can handle that minor problem easily. The DC already has a keyboard controller - I'm not sure about the mouse. UT will also be released for PS2, which does have mouse & k/b. FPS games ROCK. DC, PS2 or PC - the bottom line is that the games kick ass. I will reserve my console-bashing for other posts & webpages.Stomper

There are a mouse and keyboard for the dreamcast, look around you hippies!Besides UT and Q3 kick the poor Half life's ass, we need action. Last time I was at a lan party I played counterstrike and almost fell asleep. Weird? nope! And the geeks who play it are really annoying. I mean I still play Quake 2 sometimes, but Half life??? Sold it to some nerd in the corner of the street!Die Half life, old game that shouldn't exist.People who play half life say Q3 is too much about Gibs, no strategy. Well if I have to move as fast as a slug and carry 1 hit=1 kill weapons to get strategy I'd rather go back to a real game like Q3EVERYONE POST YOUR HL HATE COMMENTS NOW!!!

Dreamcast's First FPS: Unreal Tournament

that's about the dumbest thing I've ever heard, UT and Q3 kick poor half-life's ass, the thing is, WHICH ONE CAME OUT FIRST!!!!Half-life opened the doorway to TRUE online multiplayer with 32 players playing 2fort on a server at the same time the action doesn't stop, and I've played unreal tournament with 16 players and have been bored out of my mind. "the action doesn't stop" my ass, I've ran around an entire level for like 10 minutes before I've found people... see UT and Q3 came after half life, which is the game that set the "standard", you guys do know what a standard is right.... later for now and I can't get UT to run any faster than 40 FPS on this computer, in 800X600, wheras Half Life online with 32 players on an overlagged to hell server is running almost 90 constant FPS at 1024X768 so beat that!and by the way If you do happen to find the right UT server the action doesn't stop but if your a newbie you'd never kill anything... so go figure, and one more thing half life is also the "most popular" online 1st person shooter.. now you do know what that is too right... you must just like all the pretty lighting stuff in unreal... and because quake was a really cool game and everybody loved quake you say Q3 because it would be the more popular thing to do, I sure hope somebody flames me for this, I love bieng flamed by retards!
