Thunderbolt: Unreal Tournament 3 Review

Thunderbolt writes: "Just like all the other UT games, UT3 is primarily an online experience and that's where you'll get the most enjoyment. However, this time Epic have decided to add a single player campaign mode, of sorts. You play as a Marcus Fenix look-a-like, on a revenge mission after his colony was destroyed by an evil army of gothic looking creatures known as the Necris. None of this really matters in the grand scheme of things as the only real purpose of the single player is to get you accustomed to the various game modes on offer in the multiplayer. There are no story driven objectives or set piece battles here; this is pretty much a string of games against bots, with infrequent cutscenes tying everything together. You'd be a fool to skip it altogether though, especially if you're new to the series. The single player does a great job of teaching you the ropes, and after playing it for a few hours you'll feel prepared to conquer the online side of things."
