Unreal 2 is just way too short, and thats about the only thing I've got against it. (Those Izanagi and Liandri mercenary forces where quite annoying as well) Could 've bin more unlinear but you can't have it all ;)

Short? I thought it was too long;)

Nah, ... Only Hell took a bit too long, not an original idea behind it as well...A frozen moon called Hell. Righto.

Hell is just 1.30 hours of linear spider-flaming bullshit (amongst many other levels :P )

Unreal 1 is far better IMHO simply due to the sheer number of out of the way places you could wander off to. You didn't exactly NEED the goodies in these places... but getting them would greatly increase you odds of survival. Not to mention saving Nali folk let you have by the end of the game a frigging deathcannon (formerly known as your dispersion pistol) that let you smash through all comers. Especially when you got your hands on an AMP.

That and even though the architecture changed to suit the enviroment, it still felt like a proper continuation. Unreal 2 has way to many chops between terrain and arcitecture. It didn't feel quite as tightly woven together overall.

Also... jeez, even if they had only REDONE Unreal 1 in Unreal 2 (like what DOOM 3 is to DOOM) it would have been a better value. Though some of you might disagree with this last comment... That and some of the "cool" weapons were frankly worthless. =P

I agree, but Unreal was quite linear too (which isn't a bad thing) alltough you could wander off a bit from time to time when you were outside (if I recall correctly the flak-cannon was hidden in a village you didn't even have to visit).
I don't mean that as a complaint, I don't mind linearity most of the time :-) Unreal still is one of my all-time favourite games.

Unreal 2 lacks.... something. Hard to explain, but it just feels a bit rushed.

^excitement? The fights in Unreal 2 where pretty boring because they where so easy - I only die by getting in a poison pit or the likes.

Ok I'm trough Hell now (no not the Doom3 hell) and it's ok, but still.... lacking something. Maybe they should have kept the translator from Unreal in (an updated version of course) so things get fleshed out a bit more :-)
Still, it's graphics are amazing and it's fun to play

Hmmmm I didn't play it very much, for some reason it can't hold my attention, everything is too rushed... I began replaying Doom3 instead of finishing U2... now that's saying something lol :D
