Avid Gamer look into why Unreal Tournament 3 is supposedly dead. With worrying statistics at the helm as well as analysis upon those statistics, its a stark and harsh reality for the game.
It's a great shooter but it just feels like a game from 2004 with spiffy visuals. How can anyone recommend this over Call of Duty 4?
Totally agree with you. Bought this game and have hardly played it online since. To me it's just like Quake 3 Arena on the PC from years back and I know that's how it's meant to be. I think I've just moved on from that and prefer the tactical online shooters now. I also found it to be quite laggy online.
completely agree - it has a similar feel to old school multiplayer shooters like q3, which unfortunately i was never a big fan of. To me, multiplayer shooters have moved on so much (COD4, Halo 3, HL2 for example) that UT3 just seems like an old game with a new lick of paint.
I would count Halo series to the Unreal and quake kind of game and not COD. The reasons is mostly because of the damage system, in COD u have a more of realistic while in Halo and company u can often take a mag before u die. Another reason is that in COD u move slower and have a run option (and realistic jumps), while in both Halo, ut and quake u have a set run speed that u cant effect. Allso in Halo you can jump as there was half the gravity..
Yep, even the gfx look almost same as a year old gears. I tried it on quad core , 8800 sli rig and wasn't that impressed. Games like BF2142, COD4, Enemy territory quake wars have raised the bar of online only games.
The UT on the xbox was great fun and we played it solid for atleast a year..
I strongly recommend you get it on pc or ps3. Or wait for the 360 version, but you should get it =)
Next year on 360. Bt, nah. i thnk Unreal and the Unreal engine doesnt impress me. Plus,after the sheer depth and scope of games like Mass Effect ,UT 3 is pointless
What impresses you?
You do realize that Mass Effect runs on the Unreal Engine 3?
I picked it up as my first PS3 game (first purchased).. and now I am wishing I went with Warhawk. UT3 is a solid game and all but as others have said.. it is basically the same thing we have been playing the last decade with a bit better visuals. Ill hold onto it and play it from time to time but I think for my PS3 online gaming I will invest in Warhawk.
UT3 is fun but for you first purchase you should have gotten Warhawk.. Its the best Online action on any console right now....
I kind of understand what you are saying. I wouldn't want to miss out on Warhawk. But I'm playing UT3 more, lately. I would give WH the edge (a little bit, IMO), its better balanced. But UT3 is real fun to just jump in and play.
i think they really all have their perks!!! UTIII is phenom in graphics and is so simple to jump in start kickin a$$. COD is great for the realistic features as well as stats and lifelike modernism. Warhawk rulz for its ability to play up to four players splitscreen. i have all three and they are all great games, they all get some solid rotation in my lineup and if you can afford them they are all great purchases cuz they keep you constantly switchin it up IMO.
You made me lol! PS:You are a real n1 Jackass!!! Peace Out!
I don't even think this was released in Europe yet. No Surprise there then.
It sold 100.000 copies on a 3 million install base in the 2 first weeks, thats pretty good. It will keep selling in US and it will boost alot more when it´s world wide release, then they will reach an install base of 8.5 million instead of 3 million. Any idiot can see that. By the way, it´s a freakin awsome game, if they release a patch allowing splitscreen it´s as close to a perfect ten that any game will ever be..
Split screen? There isnt in UT3? Wow..nw that sucks
People have moved on to different kinds of online shooters but UT stayed in 04. I don't even think the Xbox can save this game, because by the time this comes out Battlefield BC and Quake Wars will be here. Hell even Quake wen't another way, Epic should have thought of that and tried somthing new. Epic is going to have it hard when it goes 360, because people are a little pissed and Epic shouldn't have pissed off the gamers that buttered their bread.
agreed. i don't think the 360 could save it either.
<fanboy rant mode> If I read some of those comments, I could ... let it be... Its amazing, how some people trash talk this game, just because it has not been released on their beloved console. WTF. I could understand the PC crowd, because they've played that (kind of) game before. But what that constant rant from the 360 fanboys. Hey, listen, it will be out on the 360, too! Now, you get mixed reactions. From "but it will sell 1M on day one on the 360 only" (nah, it won't) to "what a crap game. We don't need that sh!t". You people get a live. Really. Nobody is forcing you to buy that game. Stop polluting UT3 threads. </fanboy rant mode>
i was a HUGE fan of unreal tournament 1 when sega heat was around but after UT 2004 - they changed it 2 much for my liking. COD4 online is trash...i dont see how u ppl like to get hit once and ur dead...its sooo boring when ur doing everything rite then a stupid camper clips u with one shot. COD4 single player has been the best single player FPS mode that has rocked since i played halo1. UT3 looks amazing but it seems to crazy for me....the reviews are great and im sure its a great game - i just grew out of it :s
Honestly I think a camper is going to kill you in any game. At least in COD4 there's a Kill Cam that will show you where the camper was and you can go right after them on your next spawn.
It is called "reality" ! Get used to it...
I never liked the unreal series. Its just too fast for me. Every game should be like halo on consoles(slow and have a little auto aiming). Maybe I suck at playing fps online.
i think the game is fun as hell.i playt it every day but i also play resistance code4 warhawk assasins creed heavenlysword motorstorm uncharted and ratchet and clank so i have to split up time with each game.its better that way cz u never get sick of playin any of them
epic did something new with gears.ut is ut, if you liked the first one so much you had to get 2004 and if you liked 2004 alot get ut3. i play battlefield2,2142 and ut99,2004 the most, but with a patch and some mods i know i'll play ut3 more, at lest more than ut99 and battlefied2.i play cod4 on xbox and warhawk on ps3(though less and less) too, no hating,thats just how i do.
its a great online game.i love the warfare matches with all the vehicles.go pick this game up,its a buy.ONLINE MADNESS!
I like the new Warfare mode. The vehicles and alienic designs are pretty cool too.
Warfare! Yep! I just can't drive those vehicles, except the tank and that hover thing. But not the, what's it called, that buggy (why do I need to steer that with the gun (right stick?)). (see, I'm so new to UT3 - but I like it. A lot). Maybe its the Warfare (which is maybe comparable to Zones in WH), without it, it would be just another "deathmatch shooter".
I don't really care how much this game sold as long as I have the game and I am playing it, I am one happy camper.
The game for ps3, although it got a lot of great reviews, in my eyes to me it's a sold 8.0, which is not bad. The graphics are great, and the humor that goes along with the dialog is entertaining, but not enough to see that this game has nothing new to bring to the table. Sony loyalist will probably disagree with me, but I think Epic should have just created a new IP for the ps3. I wasn't even dazzled by the environments of UT3. All and all, I felt kind of deceived by the reviewers on this one. Just like I did with Halo3.
