    Main Theme - Unreal, my first exposure to epic.
    Main Menu - UT, kinda boring. Mechanism 8 or Save Me (Morpheus map, I think) just as recognizable and would compliment the composition better.

    I wish Epic would come out with a third game in the Unreal series, and no I don't mean Tournament!

    Yeah Unreal 2 the Awakening was a very underrated game and was a complete PC only title. Though I have to ask one thing why no lossless love Epic? 320 kbs mp3's are nice and all but why not just give is the raw wav PCM or even flac files?

    Yeah it was pretty sad and kind of confusing to see Epic the guy's that use to push the limits of current PC hardware praising consoles and saying they are the pinnacle of graphical power. Honestly that's the kind of shit I would expect to hear from someone in marketing not from someone that has a background in fucking computer programming and game development.

    Wow, I love Gears and Epic Games is one of the good last development team standing. They'd be much higher in our opinions if they didn't give PC the finger...

    Funny that Epic can act sentimental about their older PC games while they basically abandon that market completely for almost ten year old consoles that should have been ditched years ago... Especially with the next generation of consoles hardly being any more powerful than the old ones. Daring to say that those old consoles are the top of graphical performance is sickening.

    Pinnacle of.......WHAT?????

    Are they talking about the devices that couldn't run Crysis in its full glory?

    Or are they talking about the devices that are responsible for the stagnation of computer graphics development?

    How is a platform that is upgraded every four or five years be the pinnacle of graphical power?? They undoubtedly mean the pinnacle of sales power.
