      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 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.
