De gasten van GA-Source hebben een review opgehangen van de Aureal Vortex SQ2500 soundcard. Hieronder wat info over zijn performance in Unreal:
With a four-speaker setup this card made games sound incredible. In Unreal some of the effects were just phenomenal. Being able to tell which direction those bullets are coming from is definitely a plus. I was surprised no one came along to tell me to turn it down because I was blasting everything so loud.
One of the things that I really appreciated was the cards ability to do the Doppler affect. Since Aureal maps the sound from the source, you actually get to hear the bullets whiz past your ear instead of just hearing the sound they make when they hit the wall behind you. Even though this may not seem like that big of a deal, when taken in conjunction with all the other added affects A3D 2.0 supplies it can completely change the way a game is experienced.
Unreal can be a pretty creepy game at times, but not anything that would make you hide in the corner and suck your thumb for hours. When I first played Unreal with the SQ2500 I was amazed. I was actually on edge, listening for sounds that might indicate a spider around the next corner. The sequence in the first mine where the lights go out was a whole new experience. This is what game immersion is all about.
