Gaming

As you might already be expecting, it's a game best played with your mates, and unlike previous UT or UC titles, the need to play it multiplayer is probably even more marked here thanks to a fairly short single-player campaign that really knows how to bust your balls, despite being something of a glorified training ground.

But the truth is, it sat back there serving up my windows and never once gave me reason to even notice it was there. And that's a good thing.
