Cam Shea of IGN AU writes: As much as I love PC gaming, the days in which I would eschew the console version of a shooter in favour of its PC brethren have now officially passed. Sure, I may be able to run UT III in a higher resolution and with more graphical frippery on my PC, but the fact that I can now plug a mouse and keyboard into my PS3, hop straight into an online game and soak it all up on an eye-bleedingly huge screen means that the times they are a changing.
In other words, UT III holds up admirably on console. And as fans of the series would expect, it's an embarrassment of choice. This game is packed to the gills with modes, maps, mutators and options. It's also very newbie friendly, as its robust multiplayer functionality is paired nicely with an excellent offline component.
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.
