Why UT is still the best.

Post by Terraniux » Mon Aug 21, 2017 5:29 pm

More and more games these days are trying to be UT, but they just can't be!

This game called "insight" isn't this plain UT with a little twist and sauce?

Decide for yourself, copycat or no copycat? :

Not really, at all.

It resembles Quake more than UT imo. But having that said it doesn't look like a copycat of anything at all.
It's just another arena shooter, which is a whole genre in itself, and it's not limited to either UT nor Quake.

Also, that game seems to suck a lot, atm at least.
They went for "everything shiny and glowing and lots of particles" and forgot to actually make their weapons look, behave and sound like actual weapons, as well as using more than one color in a single map.

Graphics look boring. The movement is nothing new. Except for the "see noise through walls" thing is nothing very novel.
And to see the sound of your opponent is lame and looks more like an excuse for a bad 3D sound system... in other games is this called cheating.

I give it a "Meh" out of 10 points.

I agree. It looks extremely Quake-like with the wall-walking from UT2014 tacked on. Weapons are straight out of Quake.
You must construct additional pylons.
