Unreal Tournament III is a powerhouse of a game and a real boon for the PS3, which is in dire need of some fantastic shooters. It won't be to everyone's tastes, but the combination of its old-school sensibilities and cutting edge looks provides some of the most eye-catching, visceral, fast twitch gaming you'll ever experience. Throw in the superb array of death-dealing weapons and the astonishing range of inconceivably well designed, gorgeous maps, and you've got a shooter that, in the online multiplayer arena, is hard to match and will last you indefinitely. As a gaming experience, unreal is probably the only way to describe it.

The only real downside to Unreal Tournament 3 is the fact that, for those used to playing the last PC game, this title is merely an update. Although it’s been four years since the last release in the series, the only major change is the maps and – for some PC users at least – this is sure to prove disappointing. But what console users have been crying out for is an online multiplayer first-person shooter that is explosive, compelling and has that pick-up-and-play feel. And Unreal Tournament 3 offers that and a whole lot more.

To wrap things up, if you can't tell by now, Unreal Tournament III is a blockbuster hit. It's exactly what we were hoping for it to be; a brilliantly executed arena-based first-person shooter, with a plethora of depth, speed, and a virtually infinite scope on replay value. User-created content will drive this game and its online community for years to come, just as it has on the PC. It is visually stunning to behold, with superb texture detail everywhere you look. It allows for mouse and keyboard gameplay, and features a sublime online facet. Unreal Tournament III is the pinnacle of first-person shooters. Others: take note.

PlayStation 3Worth Playing
The score for Unreal Tournament III reflects an aggregation of all elements of gameplay I've covered in the foregoing, as well as the gravity of innovation in making PC mods accessible on a console title. What this numerical score can't possibly demonstrate, in the past several years of ever-better games across all genres, not a few of them arriving in recent months, Unreal Tournament III is the first title in a long time making me recall that this is why I long ago started loving games, compelling me to, almost literally, jump and down, and to keep me up playing late into the night and seduce me into a few morning matches before I sit down to work. Yes, it's that good, and, yes, it does so greatly transcend the mere sum of its fractions.

Whatever UTIII lacks in offerings right now (and I can't find one among them beyond stuff from older games), the mod community will add. If that doesn't demonstrate this whole "Game 3.0" concept perfectly, I don't know what does. Seriously, go buy it.

Maybe the bigger problem keeping Unreal Tournament out of the mouths of Xbox gamers when they talk about all time great games, is the fact that none of the Unreal games on consoles have lived up to the original. They were fine, but just didn’t have that certain something that the original did. I want to call it something like “pace” or “flow” or “feel” but those all make me feel like an advertising copywriter. There were game design choices that were good and bad along the way. Thankfully they’ve kept some of the good ones (the addition of vehicles, for instance) from those games, and somehow recaptured the magic of the first Unreal Tournament. If you’re looking for that real authentic UT experience, Unreal Tournament III is about all you could ask for.

Xbox 360Worth Playing
Unreal Tournament 3 doesn't disappoint, and it's a game that every first-person shooter enthusiast should play. The question is, should you opt for the delayed Xbox 360 option, or play it on PC or PlayStation 3? The devs have balanced the three titles in a really difficult way: PlayStation 3 and PC have keyboard and mouse support and user-generated content, but the 360 version boasts new maps and split-screen multiplayer. That makes it a toss-up in my book, so make your own decision based on which of these features is most important to you. One thing is for sure, though: No matter how many first-person shooters the Xbox 360 has, there's always room for one of the quality of Unreal Tournament 3.

Neben all den taktischen Schwergewichten heutiger Zeit ist Unreal Tournament 3 ein Leichtgewicht der Unterhaltung, das optionale Spieltiefe bietet, diese aber nicht aufzwingt. Zwar wurde die deutsche Version in puncto Gewalt leicht gekürzt, um auf eine Alterseinstufung "Ab 16 Jahren" zu kommen, dem Spielspaß tut das aber keinen Abbruch. Schadenfreude kennt schließlich keine Altersbeschränkung.

The real draw of UT3 is in its promising future. Extra maps and mutators are one thing. How will fans respond when total conversions start to pop up, delivering a brand new experience within the same game they purchased back during the 2007 holiday season? It's a brave new world now for console gamers, and they have the brilliant minds over at Epic Games to thank for it.

While UT3 isn't going to reinvent the FPS wheel, it does supply what has been greatly missing in FPS as of late, which is just a straight forward, fun as hell, experience that is endless as long as you have friends to play with. This is old school shooting at its best with a brand new coat of paint to enjoy. Fans of UT or even Quake with realize what they've been missing for a couple years now and will be happy that it is has returned in its purest form. UT3 is pure bliss.

Epic aura pris son temps pour enfin nous amener Unreal Tournament III sur PS3 mais l'attente en valait la peine : doté d'une réalisation splendide, offrant des modes de jeu vraiment intéressants, disposant d'armes et de véhicules permettant toutes les folies dans une partie, il s'agit là tout simplement de la meilleure offre de jeu en ligne disponible sur la petite dernière de Sony.

Yeah once you've played with a group of people that know what they're doing & work together, you can see this game being considered an e-sport. I know a lot of people have been looking forward to this one, but I didn't expect it to be THIS good. I'm really impressed by the engine, from which the game benefits greatly. It's multi-platform, but do yourself a favour gamers, if you're gunna pick this up, get the PC version. It runs well on mid-range computers, and when it comes to deathmatch, you can go past the twitch reflexes of a mouse & keyboard. 9/10 from me.

There haven't been too many games outside RPGs that I have played for fun in a while, but I haven't even sat down to do an achievement match against bots yet; I've simply been enjoying the actual gameplay too much. It is rare these days to find a game that focuses equally on graphics, storytelling and gameplay. This isn't one of those, but two out of three ain't bad. It looks great and plays great and that is more than enough for me.

Unreal Tournament 3 is a great benchmark for all other online console shooters; it does everything to the highest possible standard and never drops the ball. It has all of the qualities a top notch PC title will have, but without the high price of the newest possible graphics card to enjoy it. The only area the consoles lose out to the PC is in the modding where gamers will submit their own maps, but I am sure Epic will give us some updates in the future to improve this side of things. So if you are craving for a frag fest, this is definitely the game for you.

The game is not ground breaking, but it does not purport to be. It offers a big step forward for the series while simultaneously retaining the philosophy of good, honest entertaining game play with over-powered weapons and buckets of blood. Your console and this game deserve to be together!

While this is disappointing, Epic Games is onto a winning formula and UTIII does deliver just what online console gaming needed: accessible, frantic, and endlessly enjoyable old-school gameplay. Just switch on your console, get in there and blow shit up. Epic Games has done a more than admirable job of transporting the game from PC onto consoles and further refined their genre-leading gameplay. Offline gamers, however, should just rent it.

Unreal Tournament continues to live up to its name, and part three on the PS3 is just as thrilling as its PC counterpart. Never mind its shortened multiplayer count and lack of extra modes -- there's enough here to keep you fragging through the holidays.

Unreal Tournament 3 for the PS3 is easily the closest a console has ever come to capturing the look and feel of a true "twitch" FPS. Those familiar with the series may miss a few of the gametypes from previous installments. Those that are playing UT for the first time get to experience a series that has loosely defined and inspired the FPS genre for years; and without the requisite additional PC upgrades. UT3 is a return to form for the UT series. Epic has trimmed the fat from its flagship series, and all that's left is lean and mean, pure UT.

While UT III doesn’t reinvent the wheel, it’s a fantastically entertaining game nonetheless, and well worth a look for veterans and newbies alike. Its larger than life sci-fi world and speedy, explosive gameplay really work on console and the whole thing runs like a dream. A great PS3 port, and a ready demonstration of what the system can do in the right hands.

UT3 is an excellent game. With amazing graphics, a steady framerate and keyboard and mouse support, the PS3 version of UT3 is a worthy companion to its PC counterpart. With mods appearing all the time, this is a supreme package and provides some of the greatest online play around. If your PC isn’t up to speed you should definitely pick up UT3 on the PS3. Who knows? It may even be the superior version. Something to think about.

As far as Xbox 360 shooters go, Unreal Tournament III is undoubtedly one of the best. The game looks gorgeous (come on, what did you expect?), runs very smoothly, and features some cool new additions to the series. Sure, the single-player mode is hackneyed and contrived, but the multiplayer action is as good as ever. This is the best console Unreal game to date, and we can't help hoping that it's the start of a beautiful friendship.

Met zijn variatie in speelmodes en zijn vaak gestoord snelle actie voelt UT3 juist door vast te houden aan die old -school aanpak, helemaal anders aan dan de andere recente eerstepersoonsshooters. Het is nog altijd even leuk en gejaagd dan voorheen en dat zal de fans van het eerste uur - en zelfs Quake III Arena aanhangers – al meer dan genoeg zeggen. De mod-vriendelijkheid van het hele pakket belooft overigens een gestage stroom nieuw en gratis downloadbaar fragplezier.

I had my reservations right up until release of Unreal Tounament 3 given that I've had the PC version since launch last year, but I'm happy to report that this is one of the greatest shooters even on PC and the PS3 version lacks but a few details. Unfortunately, as it stands, I fear that its online life may be limited, especially if Haze hits shelves before this patch comes out, but with Epic promising it will be here ASAP, I'd still recommend this shooter to anyone with a PS3, with the exception of those who need realism in their games.

Wow! Genau so habe ich mir den neuesten Unreal Tournament-Ableger vorgestellt. Genau wie das Ur-Unreal Tournament: Rasant, kompromisslos, wunderschön designte Karten, clevere Bots, tolle Spielmodi und abgefahrene Waffen. Dazu gesellen sich nun auch noch abwechslungsreiche und toll designte Vehikel. Einzig der versprochene Singleplayer-Modus lässt wie auch schon in den vorigen Teilen zu wünschen übrig. Aber hey, ich will gegen Menschen spielen. Wer jedoch keinen Internetzugang besitzt, wird auch mit den Bots glücklich, denn diese verfügen über reichlich Intelligenz und stellen auf den höheren Stufen eine wahre Herausforderung dar. Wer nur im Entferntesten auf rasante, klasse aussehende und rassige Action steht, kommt um den Titel nicht herum. Ein kleiner Tipp: Wer noch besser zielen will, besorgt sich Tastatur und Maus. Man sieht sich online. Kaufen!

It may take Epic an expansion pack release to really get their latest up to the bulk of the last, but you shouldn't let that stop you from jumping in now. Unreal Tournament III never meant to revolutionize the game, but a gussied up, refined version of the best competitive online shooter of all time is nothing to balk at. Uneasy 2K4 die-hards should put their hesitations aside and take the leap. The quality design will give this the staying power it needs, as long as the community is there to support it.

If you've never played Unreal Tournament before, this is a must-own game on PS3. It's still the most frantic, engrossingly intense first-person shooter formula out there and even after eight years still proves to be wildly entertaining. It certainly helps that Epic has done a terrific job of making this game run on PS3, as well as provide tons of tweaking extras like server filters, customization options, and input alternatives that you typically don't see in a console game. The interface for accessing all these options and browsing servers may be a little clunky, but that hardly diminishes the unique brand of gameplay UT offers.

The score, then. Jim went for eight on PC. I'm going for nine on PS3. I could fob you off and claim this is because the context is different. In fact, I probably ought to, because it's true: Team Fortress 2 isn't as effective in the PS3's slightly disappointing Orange Box release, although it's still a better multiplayer game outside of the platform question, and the alternatives (Resistance, most notably) don't do as much as well as this does.

At the end of the day Unreal Tournament 3 is exactly what you would expect from the series. The fast paced action is still among the best available and the visuals set a new bar for shooters. PC gamers may balk at the lack of features out of the box, but PS3 owners looking for a great online shooter will have a hard time finding a better option this winter. If you are looking solely for a solo experience UT 3 will likely leave you wanting more, but if its multi-player action you desire Unreal Tournament 3 is among the best the year has to offer.

Petra Schmitz: »Unreal Tournament 3 zu spielen ist ein bisschen, wie nach langer Zeit einem guten Freund zu begegnen: Eine grundlegende Vertrautheit ist da. Aber das Leben hat Spuren hinterlassen, kleine Veränderungen fallen auf, man muss sich erst wieder aneinander rantasten. Nach einer Weile hat man dann unbekümmerten Spaß miteinander. Vielleicht sogar mehr als früher, denn – um mal beim Spiel zu bleiben – UT 3 ist im Vergleich zu den Vorgängern schneller und runder. Alles wirkt einen Tick durchdachter, mit Ausnahme der Kampagne. Aber die läuft bei mir sowieso nur unter der Rubrik »protziges Tutorial«.

Unreal Tournament ist zurück! Es ist schnell, es ist schön und es ist gut. Die Kampagne gewinnt zwar keinen Preis in Sachen Story oder Einfallsreichtum, aber der Ego-Shooter weiß dafür im Multiplayer-Modus zu überzeugen. Wenn man es genau nimmt, so ist die Kampagne vom Spielerischen her auch nichts Anderes als ein normales Mehrspieler-Match mit computergesteuerten Gegnern. Die Neuerungen sind zwar nicht zahlreich vorhanden, bringen aber Abwechslung ins Spiel und heben diesen Teil von den Vorgängern ab. Warum schlussendlich aber Modi wie "Bombing Run" gekürzt worden sind und weshalb die deutsche Sprachausgabe so schlecht ausgefallen ist, bleibt mir schleierhaft.

These minor issues are easily forgotten when you’re in the middle of one of UT 3’s massively entertaining frenetic battles, though. The game excels at everything from simple deathmatching to complex objective-driven campaigns. Well, the single-player mode is still nothing more than bot matches with some thin story laid over it, but who plays UT offline anyway?

So here's the real question: Does UT3 live up to high bar set by its prestigious predecessors? On a gameplay level, absolutely but on a visual level, it doesn't leave as lasting an impression. If you were a fan of the previous games, particularly the first Unreal Tournament, then UT3 is a definite must-buy. On the other hand, if you're hoping for a game that will melt your eyes with cutting-edge graphics and stimulate your mind with a deep, highly customizable online experience, Call of Duty 4 is probably your game. True online warriors, of course, will buy them both, which is what I recommend you do.

It's all over the top, soaked in blood, nonsensical (hoverboards and stealth tanks?) and bathed in an electric light. Warfare mode is an excellent addition to the series, proving to be a deeper version of onslaught, and the additional Necris vehicles make both it and VCTF all the more worthwhile and enjoyable. Then there are all the smaller scale but still very much significant changes, like the hoverboards, warfare orbs, and slight variations to weapon functionality that work to keep the game from getting stale. Deathmatch, however, still feels very similar, and is therefore less of a draw for me. If you've been playing the series all along, expect the same sort of thing only with a sparkling graphical luster. If you've never played this game before, do so immediately. It's still one of the best shooters on the market, even if it seems to be bumping against the boundaries of its potential.

At the end of the day, this is a game that succeeds by its ability to make a new home for itself on the consoles - the PS3 in particular. Although we have yet to see how easily the mod community will be able to hawk their wares, all other aspects of the game have made the crossing well. It says a lot about the game, that even with stiff competition from the likes of Call of Duty it is still a viable option for some PS3 first-person shooting action. Were it to include a killer campaign this would be a game that is hard to beat - as it stands it is still an impressive first outing on the PS3.

Was soll man dazu sagen, wer sich mit der Geschichte und den Unreal Spielen auskennt, den interessiert eine Einzelspielerkampagne überhaupt nicht. Die hätten den Platz lieber ganz gespart und dafür vielleicht noch mehr Maps oder Spielmodi erhalten. Da Unreal Tournament III aber einen Singleplayer-Modus anbietet, müssen wir diesen auch bewerten und leider ist diese Wertung sehr schlecht. Nach dem der Daumen also tief runter ging und schon an der Kellertür anklopfte, öffnete sich das Mehrspieler-Unreal-Imperium und die Sucht hat uns sofort gepackt. Stundenlang haben wir uns durch die Arenen geballert, stundenlang hatten wir enormen Spielspaß und stundenlang haben wir dazu gelernt.

Although the art style is closer to Gears of War's grittiness than the usual UT gaudiness, UT3 feels like UT. Almost defiantly so. Its critics say it feels floaty? Well, now it's got hoverboards. Too many different things going on at once? Now they're doubled. The vehicles are even crazier. You play CTF and Onslaught at the same time. There are deployables, time fields, sandstorms, giant tentacles from space, core floods, pressure plates, gravity warps and supertanks. No-one can promise that if you liked UT, you'll love this. But man, if you didn't like UT? This will make you sick.

If you’re looking for an excellent multiplayer first-person shooter for your PS3, go and buy Unreal Tournament III right now. Nothing else on the platform can touch it at this stage. On the PC, where you have a lot more options, things are a little more complicated. Just keep in mind that whatever version you buy, you’re doing it to play against other humans online. If you have no friends and no broadband connection then UT III will be a snore. When twitching out against opponents around the globe it can be as addictive, and deep, as video games come.

Das Spiel läuft in beeindruckendem Tempo, ist selbst ohne Festplatteninstallation schnell gestartet und begeistert grafisch ebenso, wie die PC Fassung. Da nun auch endlich mit Tastatur und Maus gespielt werden darf und Modifikationen auch der Konsolenfraktion bereit gestellt werden sollen, ist die PS3 Fassung von Unreal Tournament 3 für viele Spieler sicherlich die beste, weil unkomplizierteste Wahl. Spielerisch gibt es bei diesem Spiel ohnehin wenig zu bemängeln. Mit Fahrzeugen im Kriegsführungsmodus gegnerische Knoten zu übernehmen oder zum wiederholten Mal dem Feind die Flagge unter der Nase wegzuklauen, dafür lebt der eSportler. Viele alte Maps in neuem Gewand lassen absolutes Nostalgiefeeling aufkommen, ohne anzuöden.

With all that said, the main reason I am captivated by UT3 is because how much it differs from shooters currently on the next-generation consoles. Too many shooters are still stuck in World War II or trying to “advance” to modern combat, while not enough are cranking up the speed and providing thrilling action to boot. If you have enjoyed the previous installments, then I have no doubt that Unreal Tournament 3 will be a fine purchase this holiday season.

The only qualms I have with this frenetic and addictive game are the limited multiplayer mode selections and the lack of perks.

On the whole, Unreal Tournament 3 is nothing really new. But that doesn't matter; its predecessors were so much fun that no ground breaking changes were needed, really. It won't convert anyone who didn't like Unreal Tournament in the first place, but you'd have to be mad to think like that, anyhow. This game is pure, unadulterated, ultra-violent fun, and should perhaps be compulsory for anyone who needs a bit of stress relief in their life, or have an urge to shoot aliens for no other reason than because they can.

Hablemos claro. Si te gusta jugar online y te atrae aunque sea un poco el género de los shooters, no te lo pienses: Unreal Tournament 3 es un juego que te hará pasar muy buenos ratos. Cuenta con un apartado gráfico formidable y una jugabilidad a prueba de bomba que proporciona horas de diversión. El único defecto destacable que tiene es la imposibilidad de jugar con uno o varios amigos a pantalla partida, algo que de verdad nos habría gustado mucho jugar. No es el mismo desarrollo que el de títulos más tácticos como Call of Duty 4, pero la saga Unreal tiene personalidad propia y nos ha brindado la mejor experiencia en red hasta la fecha para la consola de Sony.

Bevor wir zum lobenden Teil kommen, hier noch ein paar Punkte die nervten. Die deutsche Synchronisation ist wirklich unterirdisch. Wer immer dafür verantwortlich gewesen ist, sollte sich schleunigst einen neuen Job suchen oder aber zumindest beim nächsten mal einen Motivationstrainer für die Sprecher engagieren. Selten durften man sich an einer so lieblosen Sprachausgabe erfreuen. Auch die Tatsache, dass man aus Jugendschutzgründen das Spiel auf 16 kastriert hat, stößt nicht gerade auf Begeisterung. Klar, man kann darüber streiten, ob bei einem so schnellen Spiel wie UT3 ein hoher Detailgrad an Verstümmelung und Blut sein muss. Wenn man aber weiß, dass man bei uns mal wieder nur geschnittenes Material kaufen kann, ärgert es schon. Die Importhändler wird es sicherlich freuen.

Worthy addition to the Unreal Tournament lineage. Doesn't impress with anything truly remarkable, but I guess most of the work has gone towards the Unreal Engine itself. A fine shooter with multitude of game modes and maps, just not quite as polished as Team Fortress 2.

Xbox 360IGN Australia
Unreal Tournament III is completely as expected: a pristinely polished package that owns old-school twitch shooting. Not only does it look ravishing, but the new vehicles and features round it out as a near faultless package. Our only main concern is that its chaotic gameplay lies on a road well trodden, and the game's prized mode – Warfare – at times feels as much laborious as it us fun. In short, that sense of déjà vu you get when you start tucking into a genre you've worn out might hit some a touch sooner than expected, and without any support for user-created mods, it's anyone's guess how long UTIII will stay in fashion.

Unreal Tournament 3 has been a long time in the making; however, despite the wait, the game proves that the franchise is still one of the most exhilarating first-person shooters available. While best known for its online play, UT3 is fun in any context - even offline - taking bot-infested battles to the next level. The developer's creativity really shines through in the various game modes, weapon and vehicle designs, and control scheme. The only real fault here is that the game can sometimes feel like a retread. There haven't been many changes to the core gameplay over the years, so if you're looking for something radically different, you may not find that here. Otherwise, the numerous polished facets of Unreal Tournament 3 add up to a fantastic multiplayer experience that is currently unparalleled on the PlayStation 3.

No matter how much you say about this game and the details, in the end there's only one thing that counts: how much fun is it to blow other players to bits? And that conclusion is simple: Unreal Tournament 3 may not be original, but it remains an absolute top game in the genre, also on PS3 where the addition of a ton of user-adjustable options and possibilities is only applaudable. Deathmatch rarely gets better than this! But do try to connect that mouse and keyboard...

Endlich darf auch auf der Konsole so gezockt werden, wie man es im Grunde genommen seit Jahren schon wollte. Die Maus- und Tastatursteuerung ist ein echter Segen für das Gameplay. Aber keine Angst, die paar Controllerfans die es evtl. doch gibt, werden dazu natürlich nicht verpflichtet und können UT3 auch auf die altmodische Art und Weise zocken. Ansonsten erwartet den PS3-Besitzer eine fast identische Version zum PC-Pendent. Lediglich bei der maximalen Spieleranzahl und der Anzahl der Karten wurde ein wenig gekürzt. Wer sich daran nicht stört, der bekommt genau das, was auf der Verpackung steht. Ein waschechtes UT, welches die kommenden Monate sicherlich für jede Menge Abwechslung sorgt. Wer allerdings am liebsten alleine ballert, der sollte sich nach Alternativen umschauen.

Die wenigen Slowdowns bei besonders heftigen Gefechten hinterlassen zwar einen leicht faden Beigeschmack, sind aber angesichts der ansonsten atemberaubenden Rasanz locker zu verschmerzen. Wer gerne mit anderen Spielern auf das Schlachtfeld zieht, sollte zuschlagen. Solohelden werden mit anderen Shootern allerdings glücklicher.

If you’re not into the online aspects then Unreal Tournament is only worth a rental. Unreal Tournament III easily belongs in the top ten of shooters of 2007, but there is nothing here for the single player gamer. The goal of Unreal Tournament never has been its single player experience and Unreal Tournament III continues this concept. So if fragging friends online in a highly competitive and fun atmosphere sounds fun, you need to check out Unreal Tournament III. More Unreal always equals more good times, have yourself a Red Bull and join the fight.

UT3 is visually stunning and the action is non-stop. It's hard to find much to seriously complain about once you drop in and start annihilating opponents in the huge number of high-quality maps with awesome vehicles and a variety of decent play modes. Epic doesn't reinvent the wheel here, but it does give players a fresh update on a classic old-school design that will keep you fragging long into the night. After a three year wait, fans may be a little disappointed by some of the changes (or lack thereof), yet on the whole UT3 delivers the goods. And it's damn good.

Mission accomplie pour ce transfuge d’Unreal Tournament 3 sur PS3. Epic a très bien fait les choses et nous offre un FPS multijoueurs nerveux, bourrin et surtout fun. Si la recette reste classique, l’habillage est brillant, offrant à la machine de Sony un de ces plus beaux titres. L’aspect « shoot old school » peut cependant ne pas plaire à tout le monde et déconcertera sans doute les amateurs de subtilité. En revanche, ceux qui aiment laisser leur cerveau de côté au moment d’allumer la console et qui cherche un bon défouloir peuvent sortir la Carte Bleue sans hésiter, le décrassage est garanti.

Richtig ärgerlich war der Zeitraum, den ich mit dem Rumschrauben an Rechnerkonfiguration und .ini-Spieldateien zubringen musste, bis das Spiel sich endlich bequemte, ordnungsgemäß durchzustarten. Wenn es aber mal läuft, dann flutscht es wirklich. Mit Fahrzeugen im Kriegsführungsmodus gegnerische Knoten zu übernehmen oder zum wiederholten Mal dem Feind die Flagge unter der Nase wegzuklauen, dafür lebt der eSportler. Viele alte Maps in neuem Gewand lassen absolutes Nostalgiefeeling aufkommen, ohne anzuöden. Um mit einem wildfremden Spieler aus einer der ersten CTF-Runden auf der Map Coret zu sprechen: „Wie UT, nur mit viel geilerer Grafik!“

UT3 is in no way a new car right off of the assembly line, but it’s your old ride that has been pimped-out to maximum performance. Every PS3 owner should own this game, because so far it offers one the biggest online community to date, (competing with Warhawk and Resistance) with loyal fans filling the servers in a fight to wear the crown of the best UT3 player. Hopefully UT4 will raise the bar in the series, possibly adding the option to play in third person mode like Gears of War, which will definitely change how the game is played. Xbox 360 players have Halo 3, and now PS3 gamers have their own online gaming domain with UT3.

However, on top of the polish, options and seasoned gameplay, you have one of the fastest growing multiplayer titles on the PSN, as players fall back to what works, not just what’s new. In reality, there's very little explicitly wrong with the game, as it's all a matter of perspective. It will depend on how fast you like your shooters, how fresh or how the console caters for it. However, the clincher for the PS3 version is that it's leader in it's small market, as there is very little that can compete with it and style of gameplay stands out as unique on the platform. The game does demand human competition to be of any worth and shouldn't be considered otherwise, but given the quality of play and the quality of the port from the PC, it’s definitely worth checking out for anyone who likes their multiplayer shooters to be fast and furious.

Unreal Tournament III macht vieles richtig: Die schnelle Shooter-Action trumpft in den grafisch überzeugenden Karten regelrecht auf und das alte Unreal-Tournament-Feeling aus den anderen Serienablegern ist im Nu wieder in den Fingern zu spüren. Schade, dass die anspruchsvolleren Aufgaben nur unzureichend erklärt werden und auch vom Prinzip her nicht wirklich intuitiv fassbar sind. Und wenn wir gerade über Kritikpunkte reden: Auch der Einzelspieler-Modus enttäuscht leider im dritten Anlauf und ist nicht mehr als ein netter Zusatz. Sein wahres Potential entfaltet der Titel dagegen im Online-Modus, wenn die rasante Hatz jeden Action-Fan sofort in seinen Bann zieht. Dank des reichhaltigen Arsenals, der vielen Karten und der bewährten Modi ist für längeren Spielspass gesorgt.

When the original Unreal Tournament debuted back in 1999, it took many multiplayer nuts by surprise. While it wasn't necessarily unforeseen since Quake II made such a bang with its new twitch-action multiplayer, the level of depth to this FPS was almost unmatched. The ideas surrounding it were simple enough; a game made almost solely for multiplayer action. This doesn't mean only against other living players, but also against some of the the best A.I. bots for its time. Well, you can rest assured that the formula for the blockbuster game hasn't changed much, though that may well be the reason for the troubles with this game. Don't jump to any conclusions; I'm not saying its bad or good.

A true frag fest that is destined to become a classic among UT fans, Unreal Tournament III is far from perfect but still a seriously enjoyable online shooter for the Xbox 360.

If you're an Xbox Live Gold member and love your online shooters, then Unreal Tournament 3 is the game to get. Whilst playing with bots and/or 1 local player is all well and good, UT3 is at its most entertaining when played online. If you're more of a solo gamer that prefers a shooter with some form of campaign, then Unreal Tournament 3 is quite simply not that kind of shooter, this game is just based on all out bloody carnage in the best tournament arena available, which is online over Xbox Live.

Du FPS multijoueurs fun, violent et défoulant : voilà ce qu’offre Unreal Tournament 3. Après de nombreux mois d’attentes, le titre d’Epic brille tout autant sur Xbox 360 et se voit même accompagné de quelques bonus sympathiques. Certes, les adorateurs de « réalisme » à la Call of Duty 4 trouveront l’ensemble un brin surboosté et abrutissant, mais ceux qui aiment imposer leur « skills » à coup de roquettes prendront certainement leur pied.

The main detractor to Unreal Tournament 3 on Xbox 360 is the total lack of customization options. Both the PC and PS3 versions allowed users to create their own maps and mutators using the Unreal Editor, but the same cannot be said here. Because of Microsoft-imposed restrictions on the sharing of user-created content, Unreal Tournament 3 lacks the incredible expandability of the other releases. Thankfully that doesn’t stop this latest Unreal Tournament 3 release from being well worth your time and money if you’re fan of either the genre or the series.

What's most impressive about Unreal Tournament 3 on the PS3 is how at-home it feels on the platform. The visuals look great and keep up splendidly, and the action is intense and satisfying. Even with such fantastic options as Warhawk and Call of Duty 4 at your disposal, UT3 is worth a purchase for anyone who likes to shoot guns in video games.

While the 360 has dominated the FPS genre with titles like Bioshock and Halo 3, the PS3 gets a sturdy, well built and powerful timed exclusive in Unreal Tournament 3. It lacks a few things that would really have set it apart from most other games, like the first cross-platform game on the PS3 and a complete lack of a single player campaign like Warhawk. Even with a shoddy story thrown into the mix, there is no doubt that Epic has delivered the next big multiplayer game for the console and will achieve nothing but adoring fans, and modders, soon enough.

Nonetheless, when the blood is flowing and the taunts are flying, Unreal Tournament 3 transcends these niggling issues and becomes one of the better ways to get your online multiplayer fix.

It's a very basic, straightforward package, but don't take that to mean that UT3 is a no-frills sequel. With its variety of modes and its occasionally crazy high-speed action, UT3 still feels very different than the typical first-person shooter coming out these days. On top of that, it's very exciting and just as much fun now as it has been in previous installments. UT3 has more than enough content to keep you busy, and with mod-making tools included in the package, the potential for more user-generated content in the future is certainly present.

Despite all it offers in terms of maps, vehicles, and weapons, the 360 version of Unreal Tournament III is unfortunately lacking. While PC and Playstation 3 users get essentially the same content to play with, the ocean of depth of their experience makes the 360 version look like the kiddie pool. While 360 owners get a finite experiences, other versions of the game offer infinite replay value thanks to a wealth of user created content that keeps things fresh. The gaping hole in this version takes the game from a must-own title you will play for months to a game that will last you until you tire of what is on the disc. Sadly, this also makes the game's achievement point set more difficult to swallow, with the vast majority of the points awarded for playing weeks worth of games over Live. Unreal Tournament III is a deep, rewarding game, for those can look the other way at what they are missing.

Xbox 360Fragland.net
Believe it or not but Unreal Tournament 3 is a fresh wind in today's shooters scene. While the latest new games all go for slower gameplay, UT3 gets noticed by its oldskool gaming where everything is centered around rock solid action and super fast reflexes. Xbox360 users that are looking for a fast online game need to look no further.

Vielleicht würde es helfen, dieses Fazit ein paar Mal durch Babelfish zu jagen, um die Güte von sowohl Übersetzung als auch Sprachqualität zu visualisieren - das an sich wunderbare Spiel wird durch die ausschließlich deutsche Sprachausgabe furchtbar ins Lächerliche gezogen. Unabhängig davon ist auch UT 3 ein reinrassiges UT, und zwar in jeder Hinsicht: Optisch umwerfend, spielerisch sehr unterhaltsam und abwechslungsreich. Nur Überraschungen solltet ihr keine erwarten; das Ganze ist im Wesentlichen ein grafisches Update der Vorgänger mit zusätzlichen Karten und Vehikeln - auch wenn der neue Spielmodus eine gelungene Erweiterung des Sortiments ist. Als reinblütiger, auf den Punkt gebrachter Multiplayershooter macht UT 3 seine Aufgabe also sehr gut - ärgerlicherweise gibt es in diesem Feld gerade jetzt mit Titeln wie Quake Wars, Team Fortress 2 oder Call of Duty 4 verdammt viel verdammt starke Konkurrenz.

Auf der einen Seite: Rasante Action. Auf der anderen: ein Gamepad. Lassen sich diese beiden so widersprüchlich scheinenden Dinge miteinander kombinieren? Jauser! Es flutscht nicht auf Anhieb wie auf dem PC, aber nach kurzer Einspielzeit, und an dieser Stelle gewinnt die Kampagne ihre Existenzberechtigung, steuern sich Minigun, Flak-Cannon und Hoverboard genauso flüssig wie beim großen Bruder! Die Action geht saftig ab, das Design ist nach wie vor ebenso abgefahren wie detailverliebt - Unreal Tournament 3 ist auch auf der PS3 ein Gewinner. Allerdings hat es auch hier mit Call of Duty 4, Team Fortress 2 und im weitesten Sinne auch Warhawk drei hervorragende Konkurrenten, von denen der Erstgenannte neben einem brillanten Mehrspielermodus auch noch eine ebenso fantastische Solisten-Kampagne bietet. Für Fans klassischer, »konservativer« Deathmatch-Action ist UT3 dennoch eine wunderbare Wahl, denn es bleibt den bewährten Serientraditionen treu. Aber viel mehr gibt es auch nicht.

У Unreal Tournament 3, бесспорно, есть будущее. Одного таланта энтузиастов-модостроителей, сотворивших уйму шедевров для UT 2004, хватит для поддержания проекта на плаву. Но куда дальше идти U-серии? На воспоминаниях о былом вечно не поездишь, рано или поздно народ потребует перемен. Unreal 3? Клон Battlefield 2142? Гибрид c RTS? MMOFPS вроде PlanetSide или Huxley? Интересные времена еще впереди.

We suspect Unreal Tournament III will find a healthy following over the next few months, especially as mod makers start churning out new levels and other content (the game ships with a full suite of editing tools). The core gameplay is faithful to the franchise, and the game offers a nice facelift to the familiar deathmatch and CTF modes. The "new" Warfare isn't that much different from UT 2004's Onslaught mode, but does improve on it in a few ways, particularly with the new vehicles that add some freshness to the proceedings. If you're a longtime Unreal Tournament fan, you'll find plenty to like in UT3 -- just keep in mind it's not the instant classic its predecessor was. With any luck, that will be remedied with the next UT release -- hopefully we won't have to wait another three years for it.

Unreal Tournament III est un des jeux les plus addictif de ces derniers mois. Une fois qu'on a mis le doigt dans l'engrenage du mode online, il est indéniable qu'on y retourne sans cesse. Une petite partie de plus pour essayer de parvenir à obtenir le meilleur score, une envie de procéder différemment ou que sais-je encore, il y a toujours une bonne raison de s'en refaire une. Et puisque pour une fois on en prend aussi plein les yeux, on a doublement raison de le faire. Il ne reste plus qu'à savoir si les différentes mises à jour qui interviendront sans aucun doute redonneront un coup de fouet en ajoutant quelques modes supplémentaires ou d'autres armes. En tous les cas, même ainsi, UT3 est un défouloir incomparable.

Au final, Unreal Tournament 3 propose assez peu d’innovations par rapport à ses prédécesseurs hormis les capacités énormes de son nouveau moteur graphique tout simplement hallucinant. En définitive, seuls les nouveaux véhicules Necris et l’hoverboard bien pratique proposent de nouvelles manières de jouer. Mais il faut avouer que le résultat est là, on s’amuse franchement sur le brutal UT3, du moment que l’on apprécie le frag pur et bien bourrin. Un genre il est vrai de plus en plus abandonné face aux titres concurrents comme Quake Wars qui misent avant tout sur le teamplay.

Si la sortie d'un nouvel UT est généralement accompagnée de cris de joie et constitue un petit événement en soi, cet Unreal Tournament 3 laisse un peu le joueur sur sa faim. On regrette l'absence d'un mode Assault ou Domination pour constater l'arrivée d'une variante du sympathique Onslaught mais d'une manière générale, il ne s'agit ni plus ni moins que d'un simple lifting graphique de la série heureusement livrée avec des cartes de qualité. Quant à la campagne solo, elle est aussi risible qu'on s'y attendait. Il reste à voir si la communauté va s'emparer des outils de création et surtout, si les serveurs finiront par se remplir, car pour l'heure, on se sent terriblement seul sur un titre qui semble boudé par les joueurs qui lui préfèrent visiblement ses prédécesseurs.

Un petit peu déçus par le manque de nouveautés et d'audace d'Epic Games, surtout dans cette version console, il nous faut toutefois saluer une fois encore la performance du développeur. Le solo ne tient pas ses promesses, l'ensemble est particulièrement « bourrin » et la disparition de certains modes de jeu est regrettable, mais Unreal Tournament reste un incontournable du jeu d'action multijoueur. Les affrontements sont toujours aussi nerveux et le moteur graphique soutient parfaitement l'action sans que la console ne montre trop de signes de fatigue. La frénésie est au rendez-vous, les armes et les véhicules également : que pourrait-on décemment demander de plus ? Un éditeur pour console ? Il y aura avant cela quelques habitudes à changer, d'autant que cette version Xbox360 est amputée de la reconnaissance des mods développés sur PC, tandis que sa concurrente les accepte. Dommage...

Unreal Tournament III réussit haut la main à combler nos attentes. Le titre d’Epic Games est soigné et ça se sent à tous les niveaux. Superbe graphiquement, gameplay au poil, modes de jeu intéressants, véhicules, armes et gadgets qui apportent beaucoup au dynamismes du titre, et qui renforcent d’autant plus l’action frénétique qui se dégage, tout y est. Les parties sont endiablées, et pour peu qu’on aime un peu cet aspect bourrin et jouer à plusieurs en ligne (ou seul contre des bots), c’est du tout bon.

Unreal Tournament 3 est bien plus qu’un gros ravalement de façade d’UT 2004 à base d’UE3. Certes ce n'est pas révolutionnaire, on regrette que le jeu soit moins fourni en modes de jeu qu’avant et que la campagne solo soit encore une suite de matches contre des bots. Mais pour ceux qui aimaient les précédents, les quelques nouveautés suffisent à relancer la machine et à fraguer des heures durant dans des décors somptueux qui ne nécessitent pas une carte graphique toute dernière génération pour afficher leur beauté. Si vous n’avez jamais joué à un UT et que vous découvrez la série avec cet opus, je vous envie. Très loin des shoots mous et/ou compliqués, UT3 est brutal, direct et diablement fun.

PlayStation 3The Review Busters
Unreal Tournament 3 is a lot like Call of Duty 4 in many ways. Both these games are lacking in the single player mode compared to Bioshock and their online modes are not nearly as good as Halo 3. I am not saying that both these games are bad because they’re both good. UT3 is one of those games that is nice to have around since it is fast and action packed. You can easily put this game on and play a few online matches within a few minutes. If you want a game that shows off your Playstation 3 then Unreal Tournament 3 is the perfect choice.

This style of game can get old fast for casual gamers, it's one for the hardcore shooter fan. I do think the timing of this game is just right as well, it's been a long time between drinks for deathmatch fans. It's too early to say whether it'll surpass Quake 4 but it certainly has the potential, and a bit more depth as well. 8/10 from me.

"Unreal Tournament III" demorou para ser lançado no Xbox 360, mas ainda impressiona pela beleza e pelo polimento, proporcionando ação de primeira qualidade para os fãs do estilo. Mesmo sem o suporte a teclado e mouse, a mecânica tradicional da série se apresenta intacta, com combates ágeis e precisão, que requerem grande perícia do jogador. O ponto negativo mesmo fica por conta da falta do editor de conteúdo, um ponto fortíssimo da franquia nos PCs,que limita bastante a expansibilidade e vida útil do jogo na plataforma da Microsoft.

Unreal Tournament 3 is a solid package that you shouldn’t ignore this holiday season. It has enough style and substance to hang with this season’s big releases, and it should be considered as a viable option at a cheaper price.

There are both good and bad parts to the Unreal Tournament 3 PS3 port. If you’ve never played a UT game before you are likely to play the game for a while, but those familiar with the series will be wondering where all the new features went. Epic have a winner in this franchise but next time they head back to the Unreal Tournament universe a lot will have to change, otherwise the series will be stale and the PC and PS3 will lose yet another top franchise to stale gameplay.

"Unreal Tournament III" has made a good transition onto the 360. The game offers a lot for the price tag but can get stale after a while. The achievements are mixed, offering some lengthy one to keep people interested in the game. The game excels in graphics and offers a lot to the player but it is killed by the lack of player modifications. So with a story that really has no depth you're mainly getting a multiplayer game, however you can play against bots to 'train'. As the game has no modifications, at the minute what you get is what you get and eventually the game can lose its appeal.

Unreal Tournament III is not going to shatter any barriers in the console FPS market. It doesn’t have the cinematic feel of Call of Duty 4. It doesn’t have the ridiculous amount of gameplay that The Orange Box has. And it doesn’t have the options of Halo 3. It does have classic high speed frag fest gameplay that makes it a different game in a sea of top notch FPS. Is that enough to generate interest from the PS3 market? It should be as Unreal Tournament III delivers a gameplay experience like no other this holiday season and adds another solid title to the systems library. Long after you have called in your last air strike or jumped through your last portal, Unreal Tournament III will still be there delivering an intense frantic experience that reminds you of why you still play games to begin with. It’s just plain fun.

Using those familiar weapons such as the Flak Cannon and Translocator brings back very happy memories of the first game in the series. Epic Games has done a great job in returning the series to its roots, and while there are plenty of new additions in there, the core gameplay remains fast, frantic and as action-packed as ever. Great to see new versions of classic maps too, now if only epic would bring back the Assault maps from the original too.

As far as PS3 shooters go, Unreal Tournament III is undoubtedly one of the best. The game looks gorgeous (come on, what did you expect?), runs very smoothly, and features some cool new additions to the series. Sure, the single-player mode is hackneyed and contrived, but the multiplayer action is as good as ever. This is the best console Unreal game to date, and we can't help hoping that it's the start of a beautiful friendship.

The basis of the game is this - you enter a confined area filled with respawning points for weapons, ammo, health packs, and ... well, you. The goal is to kill more than you are killed. Everything else is incidental. The game is gorgeous, sounds great, and plays fantastic. The only problem - it feels like a tuned-up version of UT2004. Again, that isn't a bad thing, but the gameplay really doesn't particularly stand out in this year of spectacular shooters. Still, for solid multiplayer fun it is hard to beat! It is a solid game that performs pretty well at high settings and delivers varied maps and settings and a fantastic array of weapons for dealing out destruction.

Unreal Tournament III assure toujours autant pour son arrivée sur Xbox 360, et Epic Games a selon toute évidence soigné cette nouvelle adaptation. Graphismes de toute beauté, action frénétique, pléiade d'armes et de véhicules... Le titre a su conserver ses principales qualités et devrait combler les amateurs de jeux multi, même s'ils prenaient le train en route. L'expérience reste toutefois bien moins marquante en solo, et quelques options manquent par rapport aux éditions PC et PS3, mais la qualité technique de l'ensemble compense efficacement ces petits défauts.

Unreal Tournament 3 for the Xbox 360 is a stunning looking, slick and polished FPS that every competitive 360 gamer should add to their collection.

It's great fun of course, and UT3 has done nothing that will put off fans of the genre. Question is: is it going to keep you captivated until the likes of CoD: World at War and Gears 2 arrive?

Unreal Tournament III is a fantastic port to the Xbox 360 and one multiplayer and FPS gamers should definitely consider, as there's no game on the 360 that matches its breakneck speed, ferocity and level of skill. Though the single player portion is more of a training ground than anything, it's excellent for newcomers to the series to play through so they may learn the ropes. For everyone else however, multiplayer is where it's all at, and with the variety of maps (and five extras only for 360), the mutators which allow alterations in matches, six different game modes and a high level of polish in gameplay, Unreal Tournament III shows exactly why the series is so renowned and is a worthy purchase for any 360 owner looking for something new in the multiplayer arenas.

Probably, but so what? As good as Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Frontlines: Fuel of War and Team Fortress 2 are, Unreal Tournament III is the most intense and ridiculous of the bunch. What it lacks in terms of bold innovation, it more than makes up for in terms of raw playability and refined execution, and Epic has come up trumps with a fine conversion.

Overall though it is a solid conversion. I was initially uninspired by the single player game, but as ever it is online where it really shines. Now what I really need are a handful of old mates who also have the game, a headset, and a few cold beers for a solid evening’s entertainment.

Having played the demo I was all ready to brand UT3's mighty flank with a hissing 7 out of 10, but it's better than that. At the most insane moments of vehicular evisceration I was ready to plump for a nine. I can't honestly seen anyone really caring about the eccentric single-player stuff, or the overly busy environments: if you've an ounce of competitive deathmatching in you it's difficult not to click into the zone and start pumping out flak and rockets. Drop into servers, start killing people, it's so natural to habitual gamers these days that it's hard to quantify how familiar and welcome these experiences are. With the sheer range of death-mongering that UT3 provides, it's hard not to get into the spirit of things. So yeah, Unreal Tournament pretty much remains The Daddy: consistent, meaty, and just weird enough to survive.

Sadly, Unreal Tournament 3 is not strong enough on the merits of its offline gameplay to provide hours of entertainment; after playing through a few missions in the Campaign mode or playing against bots, you start wanting to play against others. Unfortunately, my personal experience and other reports from around the web indicate that lag and connectivity issues will put more than a slight damper on the online gameplay, the single-most important aspect of Unreal Tournament 3.

UT 3 ist ein wahres Feuerwerk - zumindest, was die optischen Effekte betrifft. Silvester am Brandenburger Tor ist nichts gegen die bunten Knallbonbons in dieser unrealen Welt. Wer auf sportliches Wettschießen und -rennen steht, ist sicherlich sehr gut bedient, vor allem im Mehrspielermodus. Aber trotz einer großen Zahl von Karten, Waffen und Fahrzeugen fehlt es dem Spiel - gerade für Solisten - an zündenden Überraschungen. So bleibt es, wie seine Vorgänger, Kult für Fans mit schnellen Fingern. Feuern und Ausweichen - sonst nichts. Trotz wenig innovativen Spielprinzips ein durchaus "guter" Actionkracher.

When I first began my review of UT3, I was very excited by all of it: the new graphics, the little changes that they had made to Onslaught, the inclusion of the personal hoverboard. The more I’ve played it however the more like UT2k4 it plays, and I’m left wondering what we were waiting over three and a half years for. The people in my gaming group, which still regularly plays both UT and UT2k4, probably will not rush out and buy UT3 for the new vehicles plus some little tweaks and flashier graphics, and I’m not sure I can recommend that you do so either.

So does Unreal Tournament III make the cut? Yes, since the fact that this game has so much going for it in the multiplayer department makes it easy to overlook the lag and poor single campaign, which in all honesty could have been dropped. I played this game religiously online and loved the visuals. It also shows what consoles can do if the developers put their minds to it, with lots of mods and no load times. Forget the campaign mode and get online!

I really wanted to give Unreal Tournament III a higher score – in many respects, the game is deserving of one, as it has a lot going for it. Even when you take away the annoyingly constrained story of the single-player campaign, you’re still left with a fantastic-looking first-person shooter with some incredibly addictive gameplay that is bound to be kept alive for months, if not years, thanks to the mod support alone. However, in an online-heavy game like this, such rampant connection problems – from dropped or timed-out connections to lag to attempts to connect me to games I couldn’t play...repeatedly – truly forced my hand. Should Epic and Midway (or even Sony, if they’re the ones responsible) ever get around to fixing those issues – and perhaps even adding some clan support or cross-platform play – then I’ll consider an addendum to this. But, for now, this is how it stands: close, but no cigar.

Though it's devoted to arena battle, Unreal Tournament III does sport a single-player campaign. The story works like an offline tutorial, familiarizing newbies with the maps, objectives, and weapons they'll encounter online. It doesn't boast a Half-Life level of immersion, but the schooling the AI bots dole out is a great warm-up for those who want to jump online to splatter flesh-and-blood enemies.

Auch wenn die UT-ty­pischen, ironischen Kommentare beinahe schwachsin­nig übersetzt und blut­rünstig sind, geht es um sportlichen Wett­streit. Hauptfrage: Wer hat die schnellsten Finger? Dazu gehören schicke Karten und kluge Computergeg­ner. Wer auf die Unreal Tournament-Vorgänger und Baller­spiele steht, ist hier richtig. Oder, um es noch mal mit der dunklen Stimme Ihres Besiegers zu sagen: „Deine Program­mierung ist zweitklassig“ – das Spiel aber ist „gut“.

Ultimately, there isn’t much to say about this version of Unreal Tournament III. It’s the same game that’s available on PC and PS3 already; it just has a few little things that make it more interesting - especially if you don’t own the other versions already. Splitscreen multiplayer and new maps definitely improve the overall experience, and there’s just something that feels different about playing this game on a couch than in front of a computer. It’s decidedly old-school, but if instant-gratification action is what you’re after, don’t hesitate to pick up the 360 version of UTIII.

De två sista delarna är i och för sig Microsofts fel, men det bidrar till att dra en poäng från helhetsbetyget. Om man är sugen på lite frenetisk onlinemassaker är Unreal Tournament III ett ytterst bra val som jag varmt rekomenderar, även om det inte är fullt lika överljuvligt som i sina andra versioner.

Xbox 360The Next Level
With the Speed Freak mutator applied, UT3 plays great on a console with responsive controls that almost but don't quite reach a PC level of accuracy. Less can be said for the vehicles, though their great power is balanced somewhat by their lumbering movement. The overall weapon set isn't as balanced as it has been in previous games, however, with increased tracking benefiting the explosive crowd, and the default enforcer useless to the point of insult. Unreal Tournament III is great for a quick game or three, but a severe lack of modes and customization options makes it hard to recommend over other shooters, including previous games in the series.

Peli vedonnee yhteen tiettyyn ja tarkkaan rajattuun pelaajaryhmään eli niihin adrenaliininarkkareihin, jotka toivoisivat Halon olevan nopeatempoisempi ja jotka pystyvät reagoimaan sekunnin murto-osissa ruudulle hyppiviin uhkakuviin. Tälle porukalle Unreal Tournament 3 voi edelleen olla taivaan lahja, mutta suuri osa pelaajista jää kaipaamaan edes pieniä nyökkäyksiä viimeisten kymmenen vuoden aikana tapahtuneiden innovaatioiden suuntaan.

I understand that this formula has worked for Unreal in the past, but c’mon, evolve a little will ya? Let the gameplay match the visuals in quality. It is fun for a while, but in the end you are no better off than when you started and that's depressing. If Unreal could implement some of the gameplay features seen in many other modern shooters, you would have a very strong and rewarding multiplayer experience.

If Epic had instead chosen to dedicate this game completely to its online multiplayer features, they may have been able to devote more time and energy developing new and more interesting game types and weapons. Instead, Unreal Tournament 3 is a solid but predictable multiplayer title with a pitifully awkward single-player mode. It’s a vision of gaming planted firmly in the late 1990s that utterly disregards all of the many innovations that have been introduced to the gaming world since then.

Taken as an Xbox 360 game, it's hard to recommend Unreal Tournament III. Speaking as a huge fan of the previous games (read my reviews of UT 2003 and 2004), Unreal Tournament III's game style is still too tied to the PC's mouse-and-keyboard interface to be easily playable on a console controller (and believe me, I tried). Had Epic dialed down the speed, simplified the interface, and re-tuned the weapons to leverage the strengths of the Xbox 360's input device, Unreal Tournament III might've found a niche on Xbox Live. As it stands, only shooter diehards will have any interest in this awkward, ultimately disappointing console port.

It doesn't feel very different. You're liable to stumble across doodads like gelatinous cubes and shield pods, but don't look for any new weapons. That the old guns hold up as well as they do underscores Epic's canny sense for balance and variety. But when you're in that shooter groove, fragging and being fragged, the basic sensation is no different than it's been for lo these four years. The visuals don't differ much, even with a thick layer of Gears of War-style postprocessing smeared between you and the game. The new looks include a fair bit of Oriental decor and even a giant Redwood forest -- but the levels are still an orgy of elaborate geometry, choked with details and trim.

Es ist ein Trauerspiel, was die Entwicklerschmiede aus North Carolina abgeliefert hat. Nicht nur der neue, realistische Copy & Paste-Look von Gears of War stößt befremdend auf, sondern auch die vielen und zahlreichen Designschwächen, die außerdem leidlich dokumentieren, wie sehr sich die Serie von den Ursprüngen und Stärken der Reihe entfernt hat. Es herrscht Optionsarmut, die technische Umsetzung ist stellenweise grausig und in so vielen Bereichen schreit das Spiel nur so nach billigen Konsoleport bzw. Designentscheidungen, die getroffen wurden, um Ende 2007 auch eine Playstation 3-Version ins Regal stellen zu können. Ist UT 3 deswegen unspielbar? Ganz klares nein. An viele Sachen kann man sich gewöhnen, sie sind eher sekundärer Natur, wenn man spielt oder sie lassen sich zumindest durch kommende Updates oder Fan Mods/Mutator nachbessern. Es ist keine Glanzleistung, aber es geht.

Overall, the game is a solid purchase as long as you plan on playing the multiplayer, if you do not have Live, I honestly don’t advise you to buy this game just for the single player and bot match’s as you will get sick of it fairly quickly.. Any one who has played the previous Unreal games should definitely at least rent this game, you will not regret it.
