Quake kampioen Thresh heeft een editorial over Unreal Tournament in elkaar geschroefd. Hier wat plakwerk uit zijn relaas:
With its speedy gameplay and air-movement control, doesn't UT sound a bit like Quake 1? It does to me. Is that a bad thing? No way. At the height of its popularity, nothing could compare to the adrenaline rush of Q1, and for all the individualism and "innovation" in the FPS community (how many people out there are playing SiN multiplayer?), change for the sake of change statistically doesn't work out. There's nothing wrong with borrowing from something that works.
While we're not going to get into the whole game x vs. game y debate again, whether you end up liking UT or not, one thing is clear: Epic has NOT been holing themselves up in a secluded office coding away without seriously considering the input of the FPS community.
