After the incredible success of the original, fast-paced sci-fi shooter, Unreal Championship, Xbox gamers have eagerly anticipated the sequel. The wait is over; Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict continues the franchise and introduces an evolutionary new gameplay style to the traditional first-person shooter genre: acrobatic melee combat. The new, bone-crunching fighting style of Unreal 2 seamlessly melds hand-to-hand combat with Unreal's trademark frenetic shooter action. You can take on any one of the 14 characters, each with spectacular new adrenaline powers that give you new offensive and defensive combos. Your heart will race, and you'll be stunned with your character's unprecedented mobility as you fight your way to victory. Combat is blasted into a different dimension with the new third-person navigation, making it easier to pull off incredible, acrobatic combination attacks. Each level is designed to allow you to maximize moves and take combat into the stratosphere with high-flying vertical action -- something never seen before in an action shooter. You can experience all the thrills of combat with the variety of skilled characters, and you can even take on the role of the heroic Anubis as he fights to reclaim his people's Rite of Ascension from the omnipotent Liandri Corporation. With unparalleled multi-player action, the Unreal 2 Championship experience is optimized for Xbox Live. Just flip the switch and get online for Unreal 2 Championship combat against the toughest live adversaries from around the world. Plus, with the system link, Unreal 2 has the ability to link multiple Xbox consoles for closed circuit, multi-player LAN battles. In Unreal 2, the action is where it's at. With the new adrenaline power moves, fast-paced combos and blocks, and intense Xbox live-action combat, this highly anticipated sequel delivers exciting gameplay and challenging battles.
