What's the name of the file your trying to unzip (decompress). There are different ways of decompressing different types of files. A plain .zip file can be manipulated with gzip.

Edit: sometimes right clicking on a folder that's a zip file will give you the opportunity of unzipping it.

You are running UrbanTerror, that is a favorite of mine, I am actually the one who setup the installer script to play that game in Slackware. Using unzip from the command line works perfectly, but it can also be done from the GUI as Goineasy9 suggested, but the GUI version may take extra time because this is a very large file.

That file is a little outdated, so you may have some issues with outdated dependent libraries, please report back with any issues and I will help you get them resolved.

You are only looking at the files within the archive. You can create a new directory called UrbanTerror and select all files and drag them into the new folder, that will complete the extraction.
