Overall, this is a fine conversion of an excellent game - and one that deserves to thrive on a new platform and with a new audience. Is it worthy of the nine Hugo bestowed on the PC version? Well, yes and no. In some ways, the biggest gripe PC gamers had about UT3 was that it felt too much like the existing Unreal Tournament games, and TrustedReviews can sympathise. They can understand why long-term fans were disappointed by the decision to stick with two teams, not four and the maximum player count of 32 - now 16 in the PS3 version.
When gamers have been spoilt by things like Call of Duty 4's experience system and kill-cam, or Halo 3's Forge mode and Replay Cinema, there's a little disappointment that Unreal Tournament 3 hasn't innovated more. And while the single-player campaign is a huge improvement on what has been seen in previous UT instalments, it's still not totally convincing.
