PALGN writes: Generally speaking, games that are ported from the PC to a console end up lacking in comparison to the original. However, UTIII on the PS3 bucks this trend and does so quite spectacularly. Obviously, there have been some necessary concessions but as far as ports go this happens to be a good one.
