If you own a Playstation 3 system you need to own this game. If you want to play a first-person shooter done right, play Unreal Tournament III. This is how it should be done.
cant wait to pick this up over the holidays.
Ya this game pure fps like none other
Hoping they get the mods up and running (pray their not gimped)
Still you get a lot out of the box fyi newbs turn on the speed mutators when you launch a game speedfreak + instaglib is a lot of fun
I am getting this on the 15th .
Exactly how many maps are included?!?! people say there more than 40, but when I go to something like DM under instant action, there's only like 10 I can choose from. where are all the others!? do I have to unlock them??? I REALLY wanna play Morpheus (my Fav map) oh the memories....
I honestly don't get some of the low scores the game has recieved. Many say it's too much like UT2004 but aren't all sequels like their previous games? Halo 3 was a lot like Halo 2 and so were many other sequels but they got all the 10s and 9.5s.
I think people should either be harsh on all sequels or be as forgiving for all of them. With second option in mind, this is a great score and review for UT3. RAMPAGE!
It's insane, reading some of these reviews. 'UT3 is an amazing game, with fantastic shooting, graphics and overall gameplay options. It's not that different from UT2K4, though, so I'm going to knock down the score a full point.' It's an obvious double standard when comparing the review trend to that of games like Halo 3. I'm still trying to figure out WHY there's a double standard. Marketing got to everyone, maybe?
What worries me is that people are going to see these low scores and not buy the game. If you were a UT2K4 fanatic, it's still worth picking up, and if you've never played a UT game before, it's worth picking up. Just wish this game had been marketed like it deserves, because the casuals would have gone wild over this.
If you read any review, read this one. This is AAA gold, and if you have a PS3, this is a must buy game.
I might understand the lower scores for the PC version because it will get compared to the prev. version directly, but on the PS3 its kind of original (if you ignore UT for the PS2 - I think it was). I also never played UT on the PC, but I might go for the PS3 version. That's actually the first time it caught my interest and I most probably will pick it up - especially because there are not a lot of PS3 games out yet, which support bots (Graw2 the only one I know so far - and I hope Haze will, too). I also hope they'll add split screen, which then again will make it a complete different experience then the PC version. (multiplayer split screen with bots for your home party frag fest).
i have no idea who next level is, but i think its an accurate score.
the link is dead for me, i wanna read the review, although i have the game and already know it is phenomenal but i just wanted to read it and i get a stupid error when clicking the link!!!
Yes, the link is down!
I don't know I have it and played it and it's great and all but 9.7 I feel is a bit to high for this title. Somewhere between 8 and 9 is where this title goes.
See if it grows on you like it did me. When I first played it I wasn't as impressed as I thought I would be but after a couple days I got completely hooked and if I'm not playing it I am thinking about playing it.
Hi my name is Boodybandit and I am a UT3 addict.
Admitting the addicting helps.
Also if anyone doesn't know this already you can adjust the graphics a bit under video settings. Try playing it on intense.
oh yea I'm going to play more I'm sure I'll start liking it more with the time I put in it :)
When I first played it I was really underwhelmed. I'm completely hooked now. It's the most pick up and play friendly FPS I've ever played. Unrelated but related at the same time. Set the game to vivid post process. On original setting everything looks washed out. On vivid it looks really nice.
I was wondering if those settings actually made a difference. Has anyone done a screenshot comparison of the different settings? I'd like to see if the difference is that noticeable. I've changed my setting from original to intense but I was too busy try to frag to notice if there really was a difference.
The Sony Trolls probably lied about this review the same they did with GT5.
So I guess the same "Sony trolls" said that Star Ocean 4 was going multiplatform right? They were both from the same source btw. Great theory there, kid. Oh yeah, welcome to n4g and to my ignore list.
HAHAHA Xbots are so jealous. And we dont even care about the Junkbox. Thats whats so funny. Look at all the phantom disagrees.hahahahhahahahahaha. ...they want to believe this isnt another good exclusive on the PS3.....but IT IS!!!!! Suck it XBOTS....you will end up in last place AGAIN. MUAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA
As an online frag fest (As it's supposed to be) It is brilliant. I just can't put it down. My problems with it are the single player ( Or I should say lack of) and the main page interface lobby are crap. I know it's just cometic, but it looks bad compaired to Warhawks/COD menus. BTW, It's pretty cool with rumble.
Rumble makes the experience even more spectacular! BTW got my DS3 monday, just in time for UT3!!
Good score, but expect Gamespot to rate it well below 8 with :
+ Controlling the hoverboard is nice.
+ Pixel # 2,567,114 looks REALLY colorful.
- Too much diversity, god.
- Too much fun to be had.
- A lot of levels that makes this game loses its personality.
- Not on Xbox360.
And, as I mentioned earlier: "Online enemy A.I. too difficult." ;)
That's the funniest thing I've read all week. Lol
haha Ryan Davis on Uncharted was about as funny as it can get...
"tough and plentiful enemies can make firefights frustrating"...
I will say that again...
"tough and plentiful enemies can make firefights frustrating"...
I still can't believe that place is still around...
I have been so happy with my PS3. Got the new resistance maps, play bowling and tekken with my girl and now I have been playing COD 4 like crazy. The last 2 days I have not been able to put UT3 down. How the hell am I going to find the time to play when the Omega Dawn comes out for WarHawk. I keep coming to work tired :)
I hear you buddy..
I'm very happy with my PS3 too and I'm struggling to find time to play... between work and stuff it's difficult to play and enjoy it like I should because I'm tired most of the time too.
Now my girl comes back from med school and even though she likes to watch me play and she enjoys playing Stardust HD and such, I'm going to be clubbing and drinking with her most of the holidays....
so I'm f*cked hehe I kid I kid
This is why I'm considering NOT buying UT3 because I won't have time for it right now, maybe later next year.
Now Omega Dawn??? F*ck that I'm going to find time for this one even if I have to stay awake till 4am on work days..
hehe later buddy
Yea man. I even got Ratchet for her so she likes it. It just my way of keeping balance between me and her so I can play without her pouting lol. You're right though, I still find the time to go clubbing with my boys or hit a bar. I think that I am going to start designating games for certain days lol.
who is the hater that is on here just "disagreeing" with everyone for no reason.....i smell a troll somewhere, SHOW URSELF
He brings us all good cheers and disagrees. God bless you disagree fairy, god bless.
I was wondering the same thing. Anyway this game sounds like its pure fun and that newcomers can pick-up and play this game just as well as the veterans of this epic series or almost just as well ;).
I'm very happy with my PS3 too and I'm also finding it hard make some time to play this since I have work and and my studies. PS3 is definitely one of the best purchases I made in last Christmas!
P L A Y B 3 Y O N D every1! cya on PSN!
Yeah, wondering, too. I got a disagree on my "LMAO", LMAO :)
Edit: So, now I am confused. Got another disagree. Is this a disagree to "disagree", wouldn't that mean it's an agree ? Or is it just an disagree, as in "no I'm not the one disagreeing"...hm, me thinking...lol
Was'nt to sure about this game but decided to get it what with all the hype and i'm glad i did this is one mighty fine FPS
is that it's a bunch of PC gamers, or at least, gamers who were privileged enough to have a PC at the time Unreal and it's successors released, that they forget that a lot of console gamers have *NEVER PLAYED an Unreal game before, and therefore, the "tried and true" gameplay of previous Unreals make *NO DIFFERENCE whatsoever to us.
i never played the Unreal games before, so Unreal Tournament 3 is as fresh as it gets to me. i don't care if it's just Unreal 2k4, or *WHATEVER all over again. i *NEVER PLAYED that game, so how the hell am i supposed to know that Onslaught and Assault were great, and they shouldn't have taken it out? most new Unreal players won't even know what's missing or what's the same old, same old.
as a result, i'd give the game a solid 9/10, and more once the mods start getting released for the PS3.
more than ever, it's becoming apparent to me that these reviewers have lost touch with *WHY and *HOW they review games nowadays. which is why i don't go by reviews (i haven't trusted a review since i graduated high school 10 years ago).
the solution is simple, really: play the game yourself, and decide if it's your thing. you don't *NEED another human being to validate your tastes and purchases. play what you like, end of story.
Unreal Tournament 3 is a great game, and i don't think console gamers have experienced anything like it before. i know i haven't.
picked it up today by trading in 3 psp games 1 ps2 game 3 blu ray movies for a total of 75 bucks and the action is fast paced and chaotic this game has lived up to the hype and the graphics are better than the pc version because the pc version has to be fully equiped to produce the graphics the ps3 does
This game is gonna be nothing but pure enjoyment.
Hopefully ill get it soon.... QQ
