Put the command in /etc/rc.local which is the last script run at boot. You'll need to edit it with sudo.

I tried the following and it doesnt work

#!/bin/sh -e
# rc.local
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
# By default this script does nothing.
su -c /home/fixjack/Unreal3.2/./unreal start

exit 0

what he means is that you need to edit the file with sudo.
$sudo nano /etc/rc.local
remove the "su -c" from the line you added.
