Now finally hitting the 360 after its appearance on PC and PS3 late last year, Unreal Tournament 3 is as relevant and trend-setting as a sock hop.
Back in the heyday of PC fragfests, the Unreal Tournament series went to bat against genre kings like Quake and Counter-Strike, and it set the stage for future games in the genre, particularly the Halo series. Now with Unreal Tournament 3, the series is desperately trying to play catch-up. Ironically, many of the games that it's trying to catch up with are games like Rainbow Six: Vegas that already use Epic's Unreal Engine."
