Action Game of the Year

"Unreal Tournament is the most complete first-person shooter available." - Jeff Gerstmann, GameSpot Review
What makes Unreal Tournament so good is its breadth of gameplay options. While Quake III is a better deathmatch game, it doesn't offer much to players interested in variations of the classic deathmatch. With modes like assault, domination, capture the flag, last man standing, and tournament team matches, Unreal Tournament ensures that players will have plenty of gameplay options to choose from. The game's 35-plus levels are all varied, both in size and semblance, and they keep Unreal Tournament from falling into the genre's syndrome of repetitive and generic levels. The weapons are not only improved from the original Unreal but are some of the most balanced we've seen in any shooter to date. Add to that a tournament-ladder-based single-player mode, great sound effects, and the ability to customize and command all the bots in the game, and it becomes plain to see why Unreal Tournament is 1999's Action Game of the Year.
