Unreal Tournament 3

 

Since the last Unreal Tournament game was released four years ago, no worthy contender has managed to dethrone the now-classic shooter as the best game for online deathmatches. With the much-delayed Unreal Tournament 3, we get the uneasy feeling that...

Easily moddable ; new vehicles and game types ; shiny new graphics ; same familiar play style

New content fairly sparse ; assault and bombing-run modes gone

Sixteen new vehicles gave us fresh and faster ways to slaughter our foes. From the elevated Necris Darkwalker to the massive five-seat Leviathan battle tank, the mechanical transports here are daunting death dealers that can't be taken out alone. We...

Review: Unreal Tournament 3 for Xbox 360

 

Unreal Tournament has long been a franchise I have viewed with skepticism. While I do have a deep love for shooters, I tend to gravitate to games with a legitimate single-player campaign in addition to a versus multiplayer component. Since the Unreal...

Review: Unreal Tournament 3 for PS3

 

I got some hands-on time with an early build of Unreal Tournament 3 back in early September. At that point, the game was already looking extremely polished, and had there not been so many other good games at Midway's Holiday Lineup Preview event, I...

Unreal Tournament 3 - PC

 

Back in the day, (that day being around 1999) there was a small war going on in first person shooters. You fell into one of two camps… Quake 3 Arena or Unreal Tournament. It was brother against brother, father against son and it seemed that you either...

Whilst writing this review a whopping great 194 Mb patch was released for Unreal Tournament 3, making some changes and addressing some of the issues which have been highlighted by the review, the principal one being the lack of save game if you're not...

Hands-on: Unreal Tournament 3

 

I'll wait for the 360 version. I love UT, but hate those guys that edit the .ini beyond recognition. That's cheating in my book. Post a Comment

Unreal Tournament 3 on PC is still on track for a November 2007 release, with the PS3 version following closely in early 2008 and the Xbox 360 version coming some time later in 2008.

It may not be the best PC action game this year, but it's got more style than all the other shooters combined.

Great stunt action; cinematic style; good music and detailed environments

Slim plot; slimmer multiplayer; saves limited to checkpoints

Unreal Tournament 3

 

Authors Note: Unreal Tournament 3 is one of the few PC titles on the market

Actually a PC game, although the Linux Client is delayed ; Drips with Old School trappings of UT'99 ; Drop Dead Gorgeous on the right hardware ; Still playable at 640*480 in low detail ; Best user content creation tools available

No Last Man Standing gameplay option ; ini files locked out ; No in-game way to turn the bloody dodge option off ; A lot of recycled content from previous UT's

If Prime 3 sounds like a great FPS game, it is. If it were not for the looming Unreal Tournament 3, Prime 3 would easily have already won First Person Shooter of the Year.

Unreal Tournament 3

 

Take a moment to pity poor Unreal Tournament 3: the game finally sees the light of day after experiencing several delays and a name change only to find that it has to compete with recently released titles like Halo 3, Call of Duty 4, Quake Wars and The...

The game hearkens back to the superb style and pace of the classic Unreal Tournament, slick graphics and excellent PC performance ;

New Warfare mode is clever, but we still miss the absent Assault mode, vehicles could use some more fine-tuning ;

As a centrepiece play mode, Warfare fares well. It's actually rather strategic: cooperating with teammates and guarding waypoints is vital, so don't think you can just run around spraying ammo. The only downside is that the matches can take some time...

The iconic Inspector Tequila, as portrayed by Chow Yun Fat, is back in this video game sequel to John Woo's 1992 Hong Kong action classic, Hard Boiled, and the intervening years haven't done much to soften his penchant for shooting stuff up.

Stylish and beautiful visuals, environmental destruction, action hero acrobatics ;

Fundamentally repetitive, using cover doesn't always work, generic multiplayer ;

Unfortunately, as compelling as the single-player campaign is, the multiplayer mode is woefully underdeveloped. Featuring only deathmatch and team deathmatch modes, a maximum of six players, downgraded online graphics, and less impressive versions of...

Unreal Tournament 3 first-person shooter game

 

Take a moment to pity poor Unreal Tournament 3: the game finally sees the light of day after experiencing several delays and a name change only to find that it has to compete with recently released titles such as Halo 3, Call of Duty 4 and Quake Wars....

So does Unreal Tournament 3 live up to the high bar set by its prestigious predecessors? Well, on a gameplay level, absolutely, and fans of the previous titles will lap this up. On the other hand, if you're hoping for a game that will melt your eyes...
