Epic has released a patch for PS3 Unreal Tournament III, which fixes a long list of problems, including AI issues, stability problems, and other tweaks and improvements.
I own it and think it would be a great game, but the online interface is kinda what killed it
Epic doesn't believe in adding a story to any of it games.. This is what kills long term use of their games. I have always trade in their games soon as the online gets boring... Thanks for the Patch, but gamespot has the game now...
Yeah I had a blast with it..but I haven't picked it up since April.I'll give it another shot tonight.
they had a kickass looking protagonist(Markus and Dom fused togwther). They had badass looking monsterlike enemies. Vehicles were awesome the visuals and cutscenes looked very good(as good if not better than Geow2). SO WHY DIDNT THEY ADD A REAL CAMPAIGN?
why...do...people...ask...this ?... not trying to single you out...but seriously...is this your first UT game?...its an arena shooter...they simply do not have stories...they don't work that way...they don't play that way...its a twitch shooter designed from the ground up to be played against other human opponents... just like Quake III...every UT game has been 95% multiplayer focused...with an almost funny practice mode referred to as a campaign...and believe it or not...UT3 has nearly 5x the campaign of any other arena shooter to date... if its not what you expected single player wise, you most likely should of tried some of its predecessors... and that also isn't where Epic failed on UT3...the game used to have a massive following...Epic just incorporated garbage community support into the title...no mod searching in game, which was something that had been asked for since the beginning of the decade...it had minor stat tracking...and had zero modern gimmicks like unlockables or leveling...no real clan support...no in game ladders or ranked matches...nothing to push the competition among players...it was just a join and play situation, same as 1999...and you had to search through dozens of poorly laid out websites and forums to get involved in any 'ranked' tournaments or clan events... on paper it didn't sound too bad...take 90's gameplay and mix it with a decent engine and everyone is happy...i don't mind the old school gameplay...I just mind the old school community features (read: lack of) that disappeared for a reason... no offense...but it is very clear that you were introduced to Epic by means of Gears of War...and not Unreal back in 1997...believe me, there is nothing wrong with UT3's single player for fans of the series...this franchise has NEVER been about single player experiences...flak cannon weakness aside, its arguably the best playing UT game to date...its just it didn't get the non gameplay stuff it truely needed to survive this time around...
I have been playing UT games back in 2000 and 2005 with the pogo sticks in hand.. lol. i liked that one the best. i said that epic does not believe in story.. true or false. You admited and i admited that they do not have a story mode;so true. Epic does not believe in storys wethers that UT or Gears. We both agree. I only played UT series on consoles and not computers. everything i said and you said was true.. lol tc
