"Good, Bad and Ugly."
4 stars"

Ok, I have been playing this game for 230 nights, yes you read the right and I have been counting them as well. So what you are about to read is not the same as a 1–2 day/week gaming review we typically see on the net. So lets start with the bad things, EPIC did a lazy job in making this game, rushed its release, paid too much attention to Gears 2 and pretty much no longer support its existence. NZ has just 1 DM server with hardly a good head count. So I visit Ozzy servers only to suffer horrible pings. Menus are horrible, ugly and navigation to get online is probably the worst ever. In the end it feels like a lot of compromises were being made to introduce what is a highly skilled PC game to a console audience.

However, if you are lucky enough to get past the hurdles of getting into a low ping full WARFARE server, there is not a single FPS multiplayer game released last year that would be able to match the might, the magnificence and the awesomeness of UT3. However this happens rarely so this game is hard to recommend to new people. Moreover, the learning curve is a bit steep. What keeps me playing is that the game play is near perfect balanced, an awesome amalgamation of visuals, graphics tech, sound, game play and physics, and the presence of EPIC's TM map design.

It is safe to assume that EPIC no longer supports this game and its nothing more than a tech demo to show off your computers capabilities. There's a lot more but there's a limit on word count :(.

"first person shooter of the year"
5 stars"

unreal tournament 3 (ut3) is an awesome game with improved features such as the sniper riffle shots a big red beam across the arena so people just don't sit there all day. Its the best unreal tournament yet it's an update from 2004 but with added feature. the gameplay is awesome.

"Awesome"

I have very fond memories of playing the original Unreal Tournament about 12 years ago.

It's amazing how similar this game is in feel, it's just a lot better.

It has an enormous amount of excees fat, including the entire single player campaign and all these stupid modes with vehicles, online play etc. That stuffs garbage, fortunately you can just ignore it all.

Forget all that garbage. Just play it single player deathmatch against bots on maps you really like. Very, very intense game!

It's amazing how much more fun old school deathmatch is than new ‘realistic’ stuff like MW2

I recently had a good play of this game, and much to my delight, I discovered that Epic have done what I always hoped they would…

They've made it play like Unreal Tournament again.

Don't get me wrong, I really did enjoy 2004 and to an extent enjoyed 2003 as well, but the original was still the game of choice for LANs, and still had the best playability. This is something that seems to have been restored with Unreal Tournament III, but improved. It now has a storyline for the single player campaign, a big departure from the earlier titles in this series.

As for the rest of the game… it's impressive. The graphics as predicted from other titles utilizing the UT3 engine are spectacular, the physics are brilliant, the overall feel is very solid. Support for the Ageia PhysX cards is now implemented also – giving users of this niche hardware a solid title to play on it at long last.

Of course, there are the odd flaws. Because of the incredible amount of detail work that's gone into the backgrounds and surfaces, your enemies appear almost stealthed by them – spotting someone who's wearing similar colours to the walls is very infeasible. However this is only a small niggle and something that can be worked around.

Overall, a game of much promise, which looks great, and is likely to see heavy LAN use in the future.

By the way Dan – you got your mathematics wrong. 200ms is not two seconds, it's two tenths of a second.
