When Epic released the UT3 demo back in October it was released with GREAT anticipation. FINALLY a glimpse at an Unreal game that contained lifelike characters with bigger and badder action like never before. Created with the Unreal Engine 3, the characters and environments alike are definitely sweet eye candy.. which leads me to believe that the last several years this game has been in development have been merely to make it look good. The Beta contained a LOT of bugs, which is normal considering its a "Beta Demo," but when it was announced that UT3 had gone gold in a matter of weeks many had their doubts that the bugs that plagued the Beta Demo would be fixed in the retail version. Many of the bugs had remained. One such bug has the players viewpoint very close to the ground. It's like playing UT3 with little people instead of the proper height of the character models.
Much of what made UT2k4 and UT99 so great have been stripped from UT3. If you're a fan of the movement styles of 2k4 then you'll be greatly disappointed as the jump dodge has been removed. Jumping in itself is bad enough because some obsticles just aren't low enough for the character to jump over even with double jump. Fans of both eras will notice that the colors are washed with 100 types of gray and brown.Read more ›
Graphically you have not seen anything that beautiful this year! Surfaces, shadows and explosions are just GORGEOUS! Yes, I liked the graphics even more than those in CRYSIS (and I gave CRYSIS a raving review - check it out if you like): they are crisper and even more atmospheric.
Fans of the UT-series will meet again all our old ...friends: the Bio Rifle, the Link Gun, the Shock Rifle, the Flak Cannon (my favorite!), the Rocket Launcher and the Sniper Rifle. New additions are the Enforcer (to replace the under-used Assault rifle) and the Impact Hammer (replacing the shield gun). An interesting twist: hitting an enhanced target with the Impact Hammer's alternative fire will drop his power-up for you to grab!
SuperWeapons are also at our disposal, both the Redeamer and the new Target Painter.
The number of available vehicles has been enriched as well. Besides the Axon vehicles from UT2004 (which have been renovated), a new Necris set is available: vehicles that demonstrate novel behaviors, yet are beautifully balanced with the Axon set.
What is really impressive once more are the environments. You have to see them to believe them...! And the skies...! I have not seen more breathtaking skies ever since, well, the original UNREAL.
Since this is a pretty demanding game, once the rockets start flying do not trust that by meeting the Minimum requirements you will be cruising. So, here are the official RECOMMENDED requirements:

What I really like about the game are the great graphics and addition the new dimensions of gameplay. You now have vehicles and a hoverboard in CTF. The Necris vehicles are a nice addition. They operate so differently than the standard ones that it for interesting battles. The Onslaught mode (now called Warfare) sees the most improvement with power orbs and the ability to damage your opponent's powercore simply by controlling some nodes. You don't even have to shoot directly at the core anymore. These changes really make Warfare/Onslaught more interesting and requires new strategies.
Those really are all the things I like about the game. So what's wrong with UT3? It takes out far too many things we had in UT2004. Domination, Bombing Run, and Assault are all gone!! No more adrenaline, fewer mutators, fewer characters. The weapons are toned down. The dodge+jump combo is gone. The assault rifle is replaced by the classic Enforcer pistol. (Why?! You have no chance of killing anyone with the pistol.) No more Ion Painter, grenade launcher, and spider mines. Plus, fewer options to customize the game. After a few weeks of playing this game, I'm sad to say that I'm actually getting sort of bored of it.
Sure UT3 is much nicer to look at, but for a purist who is looking for good game play, UT3 just doesn't cut it for me. Special effects can never make up for lack of good game play. UT2004 is much better.Read more ›

Its a fun game and all but it felt like a real oddball to the Unreal series. To me I swear it was just released as a Gears of War advertising game and I hate Gears of War!Published 6 months ago by Nebri

The only thing I don't like is the games now days force you to use steam even if you only want to play single player campaigns.Published 12 months ago by cyberslober
Mostly use it for level creation from its Editor. It is a monster though so make sure you have the right computer rig to support it, whether for gaming or developement.Published 12 months ago by Lauren
