Are you going to buy Unreal Tournament 2004


Out of curiosity, I was just wondering how many of you here plan to buy Unreal Tournament 2004.. I've pre-ordered it, because I think it looks really good with the new/reintroduced game types and vehicles. Apparently, it's also going to be compatible with the original UT2003.. What do you think?

I think I will buy it. I like the unreal tournament series, and if it works with GNU/Linux then it just made my day.

I hope it doesn't cost like 70 bucks.

As long as it supports Linux, I'll buy it eventually.

Buy? What is this "buy" ? OH! That thing that was used before Peer-to-Peer clients came out.... ohhhh...

Nah, just kidding. Besides, why lose the fun of online-play on games because your CD-KEY is invalid/already in use?

As for UT 2004. Eh, I'm not too big on UT games, but it does run natively in Linux, so....

I dunno.

I'll be getting this one when it comes, it seems like they're really revamping the game well, adding some teamwork in, and finally bringing back the assault mode, which was the best part of the first game. And vehicles too!

I have both UT and UT2003. (though I can't get the former to run in SuSE Linux. )

While UT2003 has better graphics and some great outdoors arenas... The original UT has much better music, better internal arenas (So far they have yet to outdo "Pressure"), I loved the GOTY expansions... When UT2003 came about they'd removed so much that I was depressed. I did ultimately find redeeming qualities in the new game, though...

I have to try UT2004 in advance, I won't blindly buy this time. UT2003 was too much of a downer compared to its predecessor.

And if I do buy, it'll be because it's got native Linux support. These FPS games are made for Linux.
