Unreal Tournament III: Gamespy Review - 'an absolute stunner'

Although there's no denying that the Unreal Tournament franchise revolutionized PC gaming, one could argue that the console entries just didn't offer a similar (or, in some cases, enjoyable) experience. Unreal II: The Awakening was downright bad, and while the first Unreal Championship brought some interesting elements to the table (it was notable for being one of the first titles with Xbox Live play), it just didn't feel like the Unreal we all knew and loved.

Thankfully, things appear to have changed since Midway started publishing the Epic-developed titles. Unreal Championship 2 was one of 2005's best multiplayer games, despite the fact that some purists didn't like the fact that it was primarily a third-person shooter.

As was the case with the Unreal 3-powered Gears of War, Unreal Tournament III is an absolute stunner. The level of detail is extremely impressive, as are the animations and character models. Best of all, it runs at at nice, smooth clip for the most part, with occasional exceptions. The audio effects and music are both solid, although even the best audio couldn't help the aforementioned terrible dialogue.

I took a break from COD4 for 2 weeks as I over played it the other weekend. And you know what, I still love when UT3 comes out in UK I don't know what the hell I'm going to do....dare I say I won't be eating or sleeping for a while....may even have to take a few days off work sick.

Take a few days off indeed. I have both COD4 and UT3 for the PS3 and while I love COD4 to the point of addiction, I love the fact that I can jump into a UT3 match and get my frag on. The game is sick and fast and makes COD4 look a bit slow paced but in no way can truly be compared as equal, only something different. Having both will give you the best of both worlds. When you want bloody giblets, you turn on UT3, when you want the look and feel of Infinity Ward you pop in COD4. Game on my friend.

I was worried that I would have trouble doing well in both, just because of controls being different and stuff...

but Cod 4 and Ut3 are so different in every aspect you don't even really notice...

UT3 is fantastic though...any fast paced shooter fan should definitely get it...I have been regularly playing both lately, and they are both very easy to pick up and play after the other...if that makes any sense...

i gotta buy me COD 4 and UT3 since my 360 crapped out on me i have to level up on COD 4 all over. never played a UT game so this should be fun.

The 360 version is superior thanks to the 360's more powerful hardware.
