Pros:

  • Easily moddable; new vehicles and game types; shiny new graphics; same familiar play style.
  • Looks great, Runs brilliantly on less meaty PCs
  • Amazing graphics, a vast array of maps, a kick-ass hoverboard, old fashioned and over-the-top multiplayer mayhem

Cons:

  • New content fairly sparse; assault and bombingrun modes gone.
  • It’s yet again more of the same… again, About as innovative as a brick factory, Bloody annoying GameSpy is forced on you for multiplayer, Other than the new levels, you’ve seen it all before… boring now.

Harnessing the eye-melting 3D power of the Unreal 3 Engine (which was used to bring Gears of War to life on Xbox 360), Unreal Tournament III is a first-person shooter that sticks to the familiar run-and-gun action of its predecessors. It is designed...

Rating: M (Teen) Unreal Tournament 3 feels like an anachronism. Back in the glory days of competitive first-person shooters, it was all about speed, reflexes, and having the best route through each map. Get the health, get the best weapons, and be...

You can always skip the cutscenes too if they are getting in the way of you owning bots, and if you do, then this turns quite nicely into an old-school shooter which, with the help of the fairly decent AI, can help to get you prepared for the games...

Good things come to those who wait and if it aint broke, dont fix it. Two phrases that instantly spring to mind when you load up Unreal Tournament 3. Strangely its actually the fourth in the series but Epic Games have gone for naming it in line...
