First off, this is stricktly a multiplayer game catering to the multiplayer market. It is best played with a cable modem or some other form of high-speed connection. Those of us with dial-up modems are at a sore disadvantage. Those with dial-up connections move far more slowly and are easier to hit than those lucky souls with cable modems. Also, the short single-player game included is not only boring, but is really just a way to train for multiplayer bouts online. Furthermore, the game, while a solid offering, isn't nearly as fun or a technically impressive as Unreal Tournament. Buy this game only if you don't have the cahoneys to buy the far-superior Unreal Tournament.
