Default Unreal II XMP Demo

Alot of new demos. I am glad there is too much snow to go anywhere.


http://www.fileplanet.com/download.aspx?f=133953
http://www.filefront.com/r.b/page__f...e/_output.html

[edit] Finally got a chance to try it....

I just had to stop the action for a sec to type this. This demo rocks! It looks awesome and plays awesome. This demo alone I think makes up for all the other crap demos that have been coming of late. Its kind of like BF1942 meets Unreal2003. The maps are frigging huge and the weapons for each class is sweet. I will try to post some screens just to show this thing off. Give it a try you wont be dissapointed.

been playing it for an hour or so, and i must say it is pretty fun. the only problem i have with it is it seems pretty laggy at times (netcode) but im sure that will be improved. driving the tanks around is fun

The full version of XMP, which requires a copy of Unreal II to play, will be released on Tuesday to coincide with the launch of Unreal II Special Edition.

This is a cool addon.

Definitely...

I like how it feels almost perfectly in between UT2k3 and Halo... nice...

Nice new FX on the weapons too...

GREAT gfx IMO...

...yes, this game will have its detractors, but I like it...

Just tried it out, and I must say, I'm impressed. Considering how much I hated UT2003 and Unreal 2, I'm suprised I like U2 XMP so much. Of course the game is pretty laggy (though I guess I should expect that with all new games on my 56k), but the action is pretty good. I like the way the different classes work, and the vehicles are ok (though to laggy for me to drive, since for some reason it's server-based). Though some things are a bit confusing...what does energy do? Do you use it to buy vehicles and items? So far I haven't found a use for it, and I did look through the tutorial but I don't remember much mention of it. Oh well, I've only played the game for around an hour so I still have plenty to discover about the game. Even though the game will only have 8 maps, they look big enough to last a while before you get bored of them.

Oh, and I'm suprised noone here has been screaming consolitis because of this line in the INI file
