Is this the game they built from the ground up to play well on a console? Its third person right? With a stress on melee combat?

That's this one. The first UC game was really choppy and just felt bad. This one was MADE for the XBox. Top notch controls, seamless 1st & 3rd person (tap a button to switch back and forth) and great Melee. However, you *can* shut Melee off if you want classic UT experience. I got this for $10 a few months back from an ebgames.com sale. Great quick games against bots. Totally recommended.

Good story mode with actually well-designed cutscenes.

Sometimes the level difficulty is stupidly hard though, but this is a surprisingly deep game. Extremely good. The fact that it didn't make GH is a tragedy.

Live play these days for it is probably restricted to the hardest of the hardcore, but the bots are excellent, as is the gameplay. There's plenty of content here. Two thumbs up, especially at this price.

I just got it at Gamestop too this past month. It's honestly worth $20. $7.99 is a steal and even if you have a 360 buy it anyway and hope and pray that Microsoft makes this game backwards compatiable too.

It really is that good. I was shocked by the level of balance in the gameplay and the sheer number of mutators and single player modes. There's a tourny for each of the 14 (or more after some downloads) characters in the game which means a variety of matches and conditions. Then there's the story mode with Anubis which is so damn awesome that this game could have been a straight up balls to the wall action title because in one of the missions in Anubis mode you fight a bunch of robots while moving from room to room under a time limit. Hella cool. Then there's the challenges and Unreal's classic smarter-than-you AI.

Plus, who could resist knocking rockets back at people like they are tennis balls?

Buy everything! QUICK!

It is a great game. For $8 there is no reason not to own it, save for not owning a xbox.

Terrific game -- if not one of the most beatiful looking titles on the Xbox. Not sure if this one was sphearheaded by CliffyB, but it's from Epic, and certainly innovates on the tried and true Unreal franchise.

I should def get this at the price. Thanks OP.

And Sweetooth you're right. If it didn't launch near Halo 2 this game would have been huge.

Alright, you guys should work for Epic or something. After all the chatting up this game was getting here, I decided to squeeze the trigger: it's a worthy gamble for eight bones.

Yeah all the Epic praise in this thread made me bite the bullet and order Unreal today. I'm such a dork that I added this in to get free shipping:

Midway bought the rights to publish the Unreal games until 2008, including UC2. I have a feeling Microsoft didn't feel like publishing a competitor to Halo 2 so shortly after its release. Microsoft has passed on publishing a lot of great games for the Xbox (Psychonauts, Phantom Dust, etc).

For you number whores out there, this game get an 87% on Gamerankings.

If anyone wants to play on Live sometime, you can send me a friend request.

Been considering this game for a long time, may have to get it now. If I can find something else to getwith it to get free shipping I'll go for it.

I just picked it up. For $4.99, I'll give it a try. (I still have a few days of Amazon Prime left, so free shipping!) By the way, for the people who already bought this at the earlier price, Amazon will probably adjust what you paid if you email customer service.
