I remember the first magazine exclusives for Unreal II, it was supposed to be huge. Freeform gameplay, multiple endings, being able to fly to a planet of your choice and choose your objectives, a full backstory to the Human vs. Skaarj wars, the ability to recruit different species and expand your team. An introduction into the Liandri corporation and how they came to power in the first UT, a full backstory on all alien species and their history. And of course a full story to coincide with the first Unreal. They hyped it alot, what 'could' have been THE game, ended up being very mediocre and another cheap generic immature shooter.




Indeed, and that's why I feel that Mass Effect games are what Unreal II was always supposed to be. There are lots of similarities between the concept (and some of what we already have) and Mass Effect gameplay and mechanics. Not to mention that the engine is the same, just a different version.

Unreal 2 sucks.

Part of what you buy is good, part of what you buy is crap. U2 falls into the second category, that's sad, but nobody died because of it and no, Atari won't refund you.
  

You must construct additional pylons.
