I have a number of my old PC games stored in a box and I happen to notice one game in particular that I used to play a lot and really enjoyed. I thought I’d give it a try to see if it might work knowing full well that it probably wouldn’t since this game came out in 2003 and the hardware, let alone on the software, might as well be a universe apart from top-of-the-line stuff in 2003. The game is entitled Unreal II The Awakening Special Edition.

To my surprise not only did the game install, but using compatibility mode, it runs better than it ever did. Even though I know the sad ending it’s still fun playing this game.

The plot consists of a soldier (Marshal) who was erroneously demoted, trying to restore his previous rank as he goes to various planets on assignments collecting alien artifacts that were scattered about the cosmos. He doesn’t know why but those are his assignments. On the various planets he encounters opposition forces which he must overcome in order to retrieve the particular artifact. This was a great game and I wish that there could be a sequel. A quick screen shot just for a rough idea.

To get a better idea of what the game is like, I’ve recorded a few snippets.

Aida, Marshal’s good friend from previous missions, who functions as an executive assistant with contact to command and helpful suggestions to Marshal while on mission, is unfortunately killed when their ship, the Atlantis is destroyed by aliens before landing to retrieve Marshal at the end of the game.
