Gameplayer has gone live with a review of Unreal Tournament III for its release on Xbox 360. They praise the old-school gameplay and speed of the combat and declare it a genuine alternative to Halo 3.
"Are you frustrated by multiplayer FPS games that put too much emphasis on accuracy and controlled bursts of fire? Or demand that you work as a team over headsets at all times to have a chance of success? Or worse still, make you sit on the side-lines waiting for minutes on end after being picked off by a sniper you never saw? If so, chances are that you're a veteran, brought up on the fast-paced frag-fests of Quake. And chances are Unreal Tournament III is the antidote to your Counter-Strike-itis: a pitch-perfect throwback to the origins of FPS multiplayer."
