    Presentation
    Lots of text describing arenas and characters and a few movies here and there to convey the "sport" theme, but not much glitz and glamour otherwise.
    7.0

    Graphics
    Very good considering there's no difference between the look of online and offline games. Occasional stutters in framerate.
    8.0

    Sound
    Good sound effects from guns, explosions and characters, but annoying game announcing can get to you.
    8.0

    Gameplay
    Aim. Shoot. Repeat. But it's done well enough in both the single player and online modes that you will not get bored.
    9.0

    Lasting Appeal
    Enjoyable multiplayer game modes and the potential for downloadable content through Xbox Live will keep you and UC fresh.
    10.0

    OVERALL SCORE (not an average)
    9.2

    Did they compare it to UT2003 at all? I'd like to hear how it differs. (hopefully it is very different)

    How can they call it the best when MechAssault has a higher rating?

    Either way, I have the PC version. It's hard enough keeping up with people in Unreal, let alone dealing with the kind of controls you get from a console.

    Keyboard and mouse are the way to go!!

    I still think UC will be *better* (this is Subjective) than UT2003 simply because of the Voice Communicator and big-screen/5.1 Surround goodness. Add the possibility of premium content for download, and you've got one awesome game.

    I do wish a Keyboard/Mouse control scheme were possible. I'm not the best at using the controller.

    Can we save the PC Vs Console discussion for another thread gentleman? Plain and simple play your prefferred version and be happy with it guys. The only version thats the better is the one *YOU* like more and lets leave it at that...

    Didn't want to start a huge battle, guys. I have both. I enjoy the PC Game.

    I will also enjoy UC over XBL, probably more. I'm sure those of us who play will like it, too.

    Sorry.

    Does anyone already have it? If so, where'd you get it? I have an XBOX live kit already, and I am dying to play UC.
