Joe Martin of bit-tech.net has reviewed Unreal Tournament 3, giving it 9/10.
"The two [PhysX enabled] levels boast all sorts of cool features and the descriptions are practically bursting with buzzwords. Destructible environments, dynamic physics, gravity guns – the whole nine yards. We jumped in to both levels and tried them out.
Reaction: Immediate disappointment. On the standard gaming rig we use – housing an Athlon 64 X2 4800+, a GeForce 8800 Ultra and 2GB of RAM whilst running Vista – the framerate fell through the floor. What had previously averaged at a smooth 30-35 FPS with everything on maximum now suffered 4-7FPS even with everything on minimum."
"Unreal Tournament 3 is an excellent game and there's no doubt in my mind that it'll be the backbone of PC multiplayer gaming for a fair old while – alongside Team Fortress 2, of course. Frankly, it knocks Enemy Territory: Quake Wars out of the water like the limp fish it is. Then it beats it to death with something embarrassing and probably slightly rude."
