    This one is funny to watch. Unreal was a pretty awesome game back in the day – it has great vusuals and tech wise it was top notch – when it was released back in 1998! ...

    I'm pretty sure the Unreal Engine 4 can do better than that

    Alpha is good. Progress has been slow, although, optimisations has made it's current state better than a year ago.

    Meh, it's pretty average and they haven't updated it in a while.

    Honestly Epic as a games studio is pretty terrible lately. Fornite & Paragon are both terrible games. Obviously engine wise they still rock.

    But we are not going by todays standards. The game was awesome back in the day. When the "oh look ****ty graphics" kids were still in diapers.

    Game kicked ass back then and still does. "Looked boring" ? Really? When I was 24 this game was played by everyone. And back then it wasn't every freaking week a new game was published with shiny **** remake just to sell something. The game is a landmark. Don't spew your ignorance. It only makes you look stupid.

    Boring is so far from what this game was/is. As much as I hate to say get off my lawn, but really? Boring? :bang:

    Dude. both me and Tj were talking about the UE4 version being lackluster. The original was fantastic, and I remember actually watching it back then. That I couldn't afford a rig that could run it for some years is another story.

    The UE4 version sure looks comparatively much worse. That intro of the first Unreal, with a 3DFX card, was almost impossible to comprehend. Keep in mind that the best graphics around at the time was the pixelfest PS1.
