Unreal Tournament III has finally hit PS3 in US after months of confusion over it's release, and CVG can confirm it's pretty bloody good.
I wish they had included an option for higher PC like speed/pace for users with mouse and keyboard. Aside from that, it's multiplayer perfection for me. UT rules.
At multiplayer because that would be unfair, but in single would be nice.
Good point but they could have made that for a specific matches were everyone has to have a mouse & keyboard to enter.
If you turn up the Acceleration all the way up and sensitive up, it come pretty close to the PC speed of the game.
Dude I was playing this at my buddys all day yesterday with some friends and its sooo fun! I'm getting this today! UT3 for the win! They all want PS3's now too!(I guess they already did though) comes with 40 freakin maps! and mods with be downloadable soon!
yeah, I cannot wait for the mods for this game.
ive been calling 4-5 times a day now........and i refuse to get it from gamestop; ima stick to my boycott
Why don't you try Best Buy or Circuit City...or even ToysRUs...I'm sure one of those has it.
here we only have walmart its our circuit city and bestbuy put together i guess lol
bloodmask posted this? amazing.
lol i think the xbots have cooled off a bit maybe they are busy playing mass effect...great game by the way. Would be nice if we could all revert back to gamers instead of being fanboys and girls
@sonarus. Bubble for you mate. I play em all and love games. Hate all the hating.. :)
It comes with 40 maps !? wow
Im still on the fence between this and the Orange Box.......Orange Box for the bargain of 4 games in 1.....or UT3 for the visuals???? ...more than likely getting Orange
they should do what capcom did drop price to $40 by the way UT3 is fun as warhawk
4 player co op FTW!!!!
Is it only online co-op? I just bought the game, but I can't explore it too much right now, I gotta study for my last 2 finals tommorow. Because on the back of the case it says "# of players: 1 (2-16 online)" So I'm guessing it's not splitscreen co-op? :(
There's no split-screen coop. Its all online coop.
why didn't they turn up the sensitivity speeds? when i'm playing it on my PS3 it's MUCH faster than that.
just watch the vids and your sold!
that your actually posting somthing about the ps3 thats not bashing it, maybe you arent the microsoft fanboy i thought you were talking about bloodmask of course
I brought the game yesterday, I have to say it's good, but not great.
playing with mouse and keyboard on the tv, have you tried that yet?>
waiting for the Trojans to leap out of the horse....
LOL that was too funny...bubbles for u
It's a shame the Sony fantards can't rise above it. People like Bill Gates, DarkSniper and the like make PS3 owners look like children.
Don't be a softie. Don't post pro-Ps3 stuff just so Sony fanboys like you better. Have some balls and stick to your guns. ... ... ... I am kidding!!! I am kidding!!! :)
getting it this week, if I can find it.
Health bar(meter) is the past, every online game should be with regenerating health.
It wouldn't really do much in multiplayer anyway, since you'd find yourself running to health laying around anyway. Its very rarely that there's a place to "catch your breath" online, since its so fast.
Anybody know if this has a 3rd person perspective, when not in a vehicle, or is it strictly 1st person on foot?
Only FP on foot. ...unless you pull out the hoverboard (square), then it reverts to a 3rd person perspective and you can see your whole character.
Why do I have to be fanboy when I love sony products . Everything that I own electronically is a SONY . but as far as gaming console I just love games in general . I have own every single console except for the xbox and xbox360 . Do I hate microsoft no , I just dont have a need for it . ps3 play beyond still have the old 8 bit NES under my ps3 ....still cant let the legendary mike tyson punch out go
...are a little weak. Be great if smoke from explosions and weapons fire hung around a little longer...it disappears faster than steam! However, this looks great...but does remind me quite a lot of the look for Gears of War
...does the ps3 version give you the chance to play with only the lazer and translocater with 5x speed and double jumps??? It was called "instagib" in Unreal 2004.
I don't think either version shipped with it...Rein said in an interview that there would be an official set of gameplay mods like that coming after the release of the PS3 version though...formatted for both platforms...so I guess that means eventually it will be around... i used to love that mod...did UT2004 ship with that though?...I thought that was a mod that somebody made, that wasn't even from Epic...could be wrong though...once the heavier mods started showing up my PC could barely run it (it could barely run the game in the first place)...
ah, instagib. good times with that and lanning at school with my friends. but personally, i enjoy using the full range of weapons because it usually offers more intense firefights. but thats just me :-)
EDIT: Back in stock. Get it while u can.
Looks like its back in-stock again.
the campaign is downright cr4ppy. My heart sank a little when I started the single player only to find its just team deathmatch with bots. Still a great buy for multiplayer action. That green booger gun sucks though I am all over the rocket launcher. Still cant get over how fast and smooth this game runs anyone know the confirmed framerate cause it sure looks like its in the 60fps range.
That's how UT has always been. And that's how everyone has always loved UT.
Its locked at 30fps. Its sort of what they've been saying at 1up. There's 30fps, as in, "we've been getting our way up there and it dips below every so-often" and then there's "locked at 30fps solid, like butter". This game apparently is the latter.
vids look damn good. i will buy this game now. importing...
too boring and peretetive, only for those who like multiplayer.
But it's not! I guess that's all becouse of PS3 with its limited amount of RAM and slower GPU. PS3 just holds GFX level back...damn..I need games with super GXF! no this crappy PS3 multiplatform.
