"Mean"
5 stars"

This is a great game (event though I've only played multi-player) the graphics and game play are just insane and the online multi-player is just the best thing I've ever played. You'll be captivated by all the vehicles and guns and you'll be so surprised and hows some of the smaller and weaker looking vehicles suddenly cut you down with huge blades or a sudden bust of attacks and how hectic the online multi-player gets.

Its Unreal.

"Unmatched"
5 stars"

This is definitely the best multi-player game ever. There's so much to do, you can just run around and kill dozens of people with the huge variety of weapons and vehicles or you can just go insane and try do so massive jumps on your hover board or in some of the vehicles.

I'm not sure how the campaign is because I still haven't got round to playing it. But judging how good the game is online I say the campaign will probably be excellent.

The graphics and gameplay are definitely a 10/10 and you will be having so much fun killing people and just going insane you wont even notice the flaws.

If you've ever liked a shooter game or just want the most awesome multi player game I strongly insist you buy this game, It's in a league of its own. Its superb.

"Best Unreal Tournament yet."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Utterly fantastic. Graphics, Game play, Story line. It all mixes well into one of the best games released by Epic Games.

"OK, but not the best in the franchise"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

While I am definitely a fan of the Unreal series, this latest installment is by no means the pinnacle of a great FPS action game-play experience. While it is an enjoyable romp for the first few hours, it quickly becomes obvious that, like most other titles in the Unreal series, that the single player missions really are only practice for your multi-player excursions wrapped in flashy-looking cutscenes and a flimsy “invading the planet, killing our race” storyline.

There are some great things to be said about Unreal Tournament III, such as the graphics, assortment of weapons, map variability and multi-player capabilities. The single player missions are where the game lets itself down, however. Yes, they've made an effort with some great-looking CGI cut scenes, but make no mistake, this is no Gears of War-type immersion. Rather, you choose each mission based on what ‘type’ of game you'd like to play (team deathmatch, capture the flag etc) and dive into play, completely oblivious as to the ultimate goal of the game. Vehicles do add a different element to the game but don't feel quite “right” to control, and we could probably have done without the superfluous hoverboard.

It wouldn't be fair to cover only the single-player aspect of UTIII, as Unreal Tournament is very well-known for its multi-player fun. A few friends and I decided to have a crack at the co-op Campaign mode, but only made it to the 3rd level on Normal difficulty (were we bad, or was the difficulty much too hard much too early? We decided to go with the latter for our pride's sake).

In short, the game is not great for it's single-player campaign, but does have some fun weapons to shoot and interesting maps to explore. Try the multi-player and you may be satisfied with what you find, but there are definitely some better titles out there. As mentioned earlier, the Gears of War series not only looks similar to UTIII, but has a more involving campaign and more interesting multi-player. Try UTIII if it's cheap, but don't expect too much from it.

"FPS greatness"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This one took me back to the days of quake 3 arena, and that's definitely not something that a mediocre game could achieve. Fast paced, Nothing wrong with the graphics, and a large selection of character models to choose from.

The only thing I would criticize is the single player campaign, as its simply a silly playlist of the most annoying maps and game modes back to back. Stick with the multiplayer and death matches with bots, and its all fun till the cows come home.
