    Unreal Tournament vs Call of Duty opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Unreal Tournament is still a legitimate alternative to Call of Duty, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Unreal Tournament is an arena shooter and lacks almost everything that makes Call of Duty stand out including "create-a-class" and even simply aiming down sights.

    Unreal is more of an arena shooter with a focus on map/powerup control. As apposed to Call of Duty which is based around lone wolf "rambo like" combat with an emphasis on player-controlled weapon sets and customization.
