This is the original. This is the one and only Unreal. This started one of the greatest franchises that also led to the now ever-increasing-in-popularity Unreal 3 engine. It's superb, not like newer games where they spoon-feed you tutorials that last an eternity and have pointless auto-aim features. It's just you and your gun against EVERYTHING. IT'S AWESOME.

About the best throwback to old school shooters you can find. Health packs, carrying over a dozen guns as opposed to 2, and an EPIC soundtrack.

Well, I suppose shadow warrior classic is as good too ... Ah, the good old days.

Playing this again is so enjoyable. I remember the first time playing, and there is still some great stuff here. The first time you walk off the Vortex Rikers, and look up, and it is just amazing. The Skaarj are still a great enemy. Glad this is available.

I do not recommend the whole Unreal Gold. Just Unreal released in 1998. Return to Na Pali is one of the biggest craps I've ever played. Unreal (1998) is really well-made game in classic FPS style. Gameplay is addictive, weapons are diversified and every player will be satisfied. There's also some nice maps but in fact I can find few levels (Chizra - The Water God Temple, Bluff Eversmoking...) which I really hate. Unfortunately, I saw some AI bugs but it's some kind of Unreal's appeal. I confess I was not interested in the storyline (I know just the overall meaning) so I won't tell you anything about it. Last levels are really great for me - short, "quick" and good. ;) I played it on 'unreal' difficulty level (the hardest) and I finished the game in more or less 20 hours (I have started it twice).
I have to say something about Return to Na Pali... It is really bad. I thought it will be as good as Quake's mission packs...but no. Levels are boring. I was waiting for the ending during the whole time. I met AI bugs in every level. What about new (3) weapons? Hm... I was using just two of them Combat Assault Rifle (yeah, it is one of my favorite) and Grenade Launcher which I don't like. The third - Rocket Launcher is just weak and useless.
I finished this erm... mission pack in 8 hours. And if you really want to try it I will just tell you that I prefer to abacinate myself rather than play this again.
Unreal Gold is worth buying. But you should try just the main Unreal game.

Fantastic game from the early 2000's. Unreal has a great atmosphere, a nice variety of weapons, and a fantastic soundtrack. Just remember to quicksave often!
