Unreal can be played:
- Natively on OS's up to Windows 98
- In DosBox for OS's Windows XP, 7 and 8
However, if you download the final community patch (final226a) it will run normally on XP, 7 and 8. Get it here http://www.oldunreal.com/officialpatches.html
Also well worth getting the new textures from here:
