The FPS genre has slowed down in the past few years, literally. Games like Halo may be fun, but they don't have that crack on speed sense of split second intensity that the UT series has offered since its first incarnation.
Firesuit on, mashmallow ready : )
All he said was that Halo was slow, and it's true. UT has a much faster pace, and is way more hectic. That's why UT is one of the leading competitive games.
he's right - the UT franchise is a technical master piece that most p.c gamers have known for eons. Playing Halo is like playing in UTIII's gelatinous "slow bubble"
amazed of how good warhawk is.. it deserves a good reward..
lol nice one mate, anyone who manages to slip the word "gelatinous" into a comment gets a bubble in my eyes!
I would say it is c&c renegade.
UT III will rule the deathmatch fps ring for a long time to come
There's nothing like the classic Facing Worlds. :)
The majority of fps titles have been less fragfest and more tactical, cover oriented , and squad based , or hybrid magic / bionic ability type stuff. UT3 will be sweet.
So will this be better than Halo 3?
Well of course UTIII is faster it's the ultimate run and gun deathmatch game. Can't wait to play it next year. While Halo is a combination of speed and tactical (espically if you play the game on Heroic or Legendary and want to survive).
This game is getting very little attention, it deserves more.
I have a feeling it could fight for the GOTY awards.
It will be fast and it will show that the PS3 can do some amazing stuff...It will spawn other developers who use the Unreal 3 engine to develop more PS3 games...
Damn, I can't wait for this game. I like it when Fps have lots of things on screen all at once, it makes it more confusing and it gets your adrenaline going. Plus it just looks cool when your playing in a low lit room, having all the lighting effects and colors flood the walls. Sony better promote this game properly, make two commercials and show them on most of the channels. Have Best Buy and the other major places have big posters and cut outs. Make this game come alive Sony!!!!
But realisticly, its not as hyped. I can smell it now xbox bias sites like ign and gamespot giving it a realistic score. If halo's multiplayer helped push the game to scores of 10/10 then unreal should be 12/10
its fine if it isnt over hyped, Im tired of the Halo 3 ad's and I finished the fight yesterday :D though Im waiting for everyone to set up the multiplayer gameing party but Im a bigger fan of UT3 and once its out I wont touch Halo again
ut3 will own halo
memories of lanning in a school computer lab without the teacher knowing are coming back... i absolutely loved playing UT and Quake III: Arena.. absolutely twitch gameplay. there was a infinite difference between being good and being great at this game.... ahh, can't wait to play it on my 60" tv btw, in halo 3, do you still run really slowly? when i first played the original halo, i was really surprised at how slow you ran. did they speed it up a little?
haha i remember the JC, with all the computers networked playing quake III.. man its a wonder I ever got anything done
This game is gonna kick ass, anyone believing halo 3 multiplayer is gonna be better than UTIII needs to play some of the older UT games. Just got a new pc with a 22 screen so this is gonna be sweeeeet.
here comes the best online fps game ever!
man i love the unreal tournament games i been playing them on pc for years. i still play 2004 some times when im bored. not sure if i will go for the ps3 version or pc. i would like to play it on my 55. but im not so sure without the keyboard mouse. i do like ps3 controlers for fps but most fps for the consoles are slow compared to ut not sure if it will work with something so quik. well either way i know im getting it.
PS3 supports Keyboard and mouse (also the fragFX controler is pretty good too for the other games that dont support the Keboard)
It must have really hurt Kotaku to heap this much praise on a PS3 game, M$ whores that they are. The game must really be that good. I cant wait to see the different game type the mod community comes up with. It would be pretty funny if someone remaked one of the good levels from Halo like The Silent Cartographer.
Now that every site has given Halo 3 10's, what will they give UT3. We all know it will be a better game but somehow i don't think it will get the same high scores.
UT3 will no doubt be a great game, but the biggest excuse in reviews from other sites would probably be "Since there is no true story line we will give it a 8/10 blah blah blah" something along those lines.
Yeah the problem with UT is that its not hyped up so everybody and their grandmother knows about it. Although don't get me wrong I think this will be the FPS of the year. I just hate the fact that innovative games like these with even more replayability than others, don't get the credit they deserve... and I honestly credit that to the hype machine. I'd love to see the day when games earn their greatness, and not beat the dead horse out of a franchise and still get great reviews. I guess all the more reason true gamers get to enjoy these fun gems.
Well, then I think so too.
Halo is great but I love UT. I'm almost glad that it's not coming out until next year for the 360. I can't afford any more games. I really think that UT3 was delayed for the 360 because it and Halo would have taken profits form one and other. Also, EPIC is probably trying to show some respect to the PS3. For the PS3 fans who haven't played UT 2004, you should get this game. And for the 360 fans who haven't played it, once you try it you will have a hard time going back to halo. If your a fan of online FPS games, this is all you will ever need. Don't get me wrong, I love Halo too but UT is better for online play.
I love how people are talking about how some companies are beating the dead horse out of a franchise. Arent Halo and Unreal both on their third? You know Halo 3, Unreal Tournament 3? By the way, I have Halo3 and will be getting UT3. Cant wait.
So far no negative comment about this game, oh well. On a serious note it looks amazing and if this game doesn't push PS3 sales then hopefully Uncharted does (but it looks a dead cert)
