When you think of first-person shooters, there are a handful of titles your mind instantly thinks of. Games like Doom, Quake, and Halo are classics, but you can’t have a conversation about blistering fast shooters without including Unreal Tournament.

Unreal Tournament, released in 1999, is celebrating its 20th anniversary and we thought it would be fun to look back at the iconic shooter, highlight some of its influences on the genre, and even dive into mod scene which not only helped produce many more modern classics but change up the core experience of the game for players.

Unreal Tournament inspired many shooters to come

Unreal Tournament (sometimes referred to as UT99) is the sequel to Unreal developed by Epic Games. It shifted the focus to the multiplayer portion of the first title. Its fast-paced competitive shooting is still to this day a blast to play against real people or the well-coded bots. Whether playing Capture the Flag on the iconic Facing Worlds map or blasting your way through opponents in team deathmatch on Deck 16, there is plenty to love.

So much to love, in fact, that many modern shooters take cues from games like Unreal Tournament and Quake III (released at the same time). Whether it is the game modes or the weapons, many other titles have built on the success of these iconic first-person shooters.

In addition, these two games showed that two similar-playing games could exist and be successful at the same time. The similarities between the two also helped ignite message boards and LAN parties with conversations of “which was better” and you can still see fans of the two series debating their merits to this day.

In the first-person shooter genre, this was a new thing and helped pave the way for shooters to see similar release dates …read more

After years of dwelling in obscurity, the Stranglehold game is back in grand style, thanks to GOG.COM and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

For some, this is a true gem among third-person shooters. Others will enjoy discovering the game’s pure action formula straight out of a Hong Kong action flick.

A living legend

Among many action moviemakers, only a few have reached the prominence of John Woo. The Chinese-born director gave us cult-classics like The Killer, Better Tomorrow, and Face/Off. Those titles are so action-packed that even the Fast and Furious movies seem slow-paced in comparison.

The “gun ballet” mentioned in the title is a perfect description of action sequences in John Woo’s movies. Highly-stylized and full of slow-motion scenes, they resemble some kind of death dance that is both thrilling and fun to watch. The movie Hard Boiled (1992) contains all of these things and to this day is considered a near-perfect John Woo title. It’s also the film that gave the director’s career a much-needed push and a Hollywood debut just a year later.

It took John Woo another 15 years to tell a new story about the fearless Hong Kong Police Inspector Yuen, nicknamed “Tequila”. And when the time finally came, the sequel, Stranglehold, turned out to be… a video game.

A strike from shadows

How did it happen? First of all, John Woo, director of high-tech films like Mission: Impossible 2, has always been open to exploring new media. He even founded his own video game company, Tiger Hill Entertainment, in May 2003. Around that time, the famous filmmaker learned that developers from the Midway Company (known mainly from the Mortal Kombat series) were planning to make a game based on one of his movies.

John Woo was enthusiastic. Soon, his Tiger Hill company started to work …read more
