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.

Console tis great if you don't know jack about PC's.Console = Whack a Disc in and start playing.PC's = install, updates , patches, glitches...then providing you'vedone it correcly ya can play better than any console.So I spose it boils down to personal preferences.PC's for those with understanding.Console for those that just want to play.Me , I'll take the pc atm until there's amore flexible console system.

Why must everyone curse, we can get your point better if the use of such words were not in it. Just say what you have to say, not what you feel. I do believe that PC's are much better than console systems, but some people like the idea of using a game pad more. Or the just like the idea of having a more mobile unit (that is much less than a laptop). Now see, I didn't have to say one curse word to get that across.

Now I've only once played a DC but unless there is a mouse with it and the TV is of an extremely good picture quality UT will be shit on the DC. One thing FPS's need is a high quality picture which a monitor can provide but not a TV. Also, the mouse will be vital to play it properly. Will all the mods like SWAT, Strike Force and the glorious Unreal4ever make it to the DC? Or will Sega have their way and have all the player models in manga/anime style? We will all wait and see.

I like all video game systems especially Dreamcast. I will also be getting the PS2. I love this game and it will be awesome to play this over the net. And the system is fast and the graphics look great on the Dreamcast so this game will be A+. And what is this? You need a mouse, what for? All you need is a control and a homicide personality.
