Had a lot of fun reliving some old memories with a friend through Unreal Tournament. I got the game for a friend as a Christmas present (through GOG.com's holiday sale). It's been a while since I have played Unreal Tournament, and while I still occasionally play Unreal Tournament 3, the original has a very different feel: slightly slower pace and weapons do more damage. Notably, the rocket launcher in UT, along with being able to fire 8 rockets at a time(!), has much more splash damage than in later entries. It took me a while to re-acclimate myself, but by the end of the night, I had gotten used to the physics of the flak cannon and the lack of the double-jump and was having a great time.

Ah, I love the original UT. Many fond LAN-party memories there.

The weapons actually felt *dangerous*; as opposed to the slightly-toxic super-soakers in UT2003+ ;)
And oh, how I miss the 8-rocket spread and shock rifle's alt-fire + primary "nuke" feature. Good times.
@bendrexl The shock rifle actually retained that function: it's even present in UT3. The rockets on the other hand, well, between the huge splash damage and the ability to lob 8 like grenades using the secondary fire, it's really unmatched in pretty much any first person shooter. The rocket launchers in newer UT games simply cannot measure up, even with their increased rate of fire and projectile speed.
