    Unreal II The Awakening


    I have Unreal II The Awakening. I can see that The Unreal series seems to run on Linux, but I can't find this specific game. Does it work? Are there patches for it to get play it?

    Everything I google turns up Unreal Tournament.

    Unreal 2 is kind of the "red-headed stepchild" of Unreal games. The original Unreal has a Linux port (done by Ryan "Icculus" Gordon), as does the original Unreal Tournament. UT2003 and UT2004 got star treatment with native Linux versions in the retail box. If there is a port for Unreal 2, it's probably on Icculus.org.

    Forgive my ignorance, but I am new to world of gaming in general.

    Is Unreal Tournament in single player mode like Unreal2 The Awkening?

    Thanks,

    Don't worry, it's such a small world you'll get used to it in no time.

    Unreal Tournament single player is just like UT2003 or UT2004 in single player mode. You just fight a bunch of bots in different arenas and play through the different game modes. That's not to say it isn't a damn fun game to play... but it's not a deep single-player game like the original Unreal or Unreal 2.

    Unreal 2k4 (haven't plaied 2k3) has this layout of the single player mode that you initally fight for money on your own against bots, then you forger/hire/buy a team, beat it in DM (to prove your worthiness as their leader), then you fight other teams, not sure how it goes on (haven't play single player mode that much, yet... )

    Also, there's a match fee for all fights, wining gives you more cash, also, doing sprees, double/muilti/etc kills, adrenaline combos, other "fancy" stuff also gives extra cash Also, if you become "untouchable" you get cash for it (ie you never die during the match - really quite trivial, a pice of cake during the first phase of single play mode )
