Rated 10 out of 10 by TheGr33n1 Does it get any better than this?
I've been playing FPS since the days of the original Doom and I can just about say I've played them all...But here we have something a little different. Unreal Tournament 3, My first experience with UT3 on the 360 kinda reminds me of the first time I brought home my copy of Quake 3 Arena and played it for the first time on my Gateway P75...An absolute joy to own and play...The speed is incredible and the response time from the 360 controller is immaculate. Unreal Tournament 3 unleashes the full power of Unreal Engine 3, taking graphics, gameplay, and challenge to a whole new level. Not only do you get 5 additional maps but also new characters exclusive to the 360...These guys did an incredible job of making this gem absolutely perfect...No 360 collection should be without this title...If you don't have it, get it...I pre-ordered mine back in April and received the AWESOME UT3 faceplate with it....Well I guess my copy of COD 4 will have to collect a lil' dust for a while :)
Rated 8 out of 10 by Starfox4ever A good game, but the PC version is the best.
This is a great game. There is no heavy storyline here, but it's done so you know what exactly is going on, up to the anti-climatic end. Plenty of classic UT weapons, and plenty of game modes to keep you satisfied, as well as some interesting vehicles you can use to cut your foes down to size. There are 4 different game difficulties, making the game a challenge every time. Multiplayer mode is just as good as the Campaign, and there's Co-op for those who liked the Single Player mode, and want to play with three allies. The storyline is simple: Humanity is fighting against the Skaarj and a few other races. You are the leader of a small group of mercenaries who fight to turn the tide of war in humanity's favor. But it's not easy. Do not expect to stay alive forever. In every stage, YOU WILL DIE AT LEAST ONCE. But its cool, since there are Re spawners in every stage. This was made by Epic Games, the same people that gave us Gears Of War, so the characters look familiar. A great game through and through.

Okay, so I just got this game the other day, and it's really fun, hence the title. Graphics are outstanding. I expected that from epic. It's a very fast game. The controls keep up with it for the most part. The weapon changing is a little slow. You can only change your weapons in a certain order, or you bring up a weapon menu, but that takes too long. The online is kinda laggy. It's hard to kill someone with bullet lag. That's mostly what I get. So I usually just play instant action and set the bots skill up pretty high. The bots in this game are smart. They do everything like a real person would. If you set the bots difficulty really high 9 times out of 10 they're better than an actual person playing the game. The campaign is misleading. In the beginning of the campaign they have a pretty cool intro video, but the campaign game play is nothing like it. So I was really disappointed. It's pretty much instant action with a story line, but other than that it's a fun game.

Their is no doubt that Unreal Tournament 3 will be the 2008 Game of the Year. With the Halo series over (Much to my disappointment), this game will set the bar for 3rd person shooters, an even higher bar than Gears of War set. GoW was an okay game in my opinion, great graphics and fun campaign/multiplayer, but just okay controls and storyline. I am still a fan of FPS's, but UT3 will be a must have. It has unbelievable graphics and explosive multiplayer. Yes, it will probably beat Halo 3's multiplayer and graphics, but to tell you the truth, multiplayer and graphics are not the only reason I play Halo. It has the best storyline of any game, ever. It isn't the same old WWII or modern day fighting, it's something new. This game offers something new too, however, and their is no doubt it will be a great game, but I will not stop playing Halo 3 or CoD 4 because of it. It will definitely be better on Xbox 360 because Xbox Live is way better than PS3's online service.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Hating Halo 3 A great game to mix it up a bit...
I absolutely love this game. It's a great change of pace from Gears of War 2. I loved Halo, but was somewhat disappointed with Halo 3 multi-player. This is a great game on multi-player, it's basically a combination of GOW and Halo on steroids. Unlike Halo 3, Unreal Tournament 3 gives any player at any skill level a chance to win in the multiplayer format. I had been looking for a game that wasn't as serious as GOW2. This is THE game, you still get to make those wonderful Head shots with the snipe and go on Killing sprees, but the overall play is more like the Halo series but with the speed of GOW. I have never played any of the Unreal Tournament games before, but really do enjoy this one. If you like Rainbow six Vegas or Counter Strike, Metal Gear, etc...Then you likely won't like this game. Do not expect this to be like GOW though, It is a great game with the things I enjoy from other games and without the annoying parts of others. Definitely worth a play.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sick Nick Best FPS To Hit 360 In A While!!!!
I picked up this game the day it came out, and I must say this game is amazing. If you like fps, you're going to LOVE this game. It's quick, precise and just all-out crazy. The weapons are great, and the vehicles are amazing. I love almost ALL of them. They're just so much fun to drive and so deadly to shoot/massacre people. The story mode? Okay, I will not lie to you and tell you it's amazing. It's repetitive, but that's not WHY someone should be buying this game. It should be for playing this game over xbox live. I have to say that on live, it's so fun. So many levels, so much DEATH. Yes it's a little fast-paced, but, it's nothing that someone couldn't get used to in a couple games. Believe me, if you liked gears and want something to hold you over until GOW2, this will keep you occupied. TRUST ME. I would've said this game was PERFECT, but the story mode holds me back from going that far. Besides the story mode not being perfect, everything else is perfect. Whoever buys this game will NOT be disappointed. Go buy it!
Rated 9 out of 10 by VIPER Don't stand still!
I think that this game is very well put together, and it provides a lot of fun to be had. The only problem that I had with this game is that the story mode was dreadful. It's like you're playing team objective, ctf, and team deathmatch through the whole campaign. They could have put together some kind of story line instead of just playing team deathmatch the whole time. But other then that this game is complete. You can do story mode co-op which makes up for the campaign. I think the graphics are great, sound and environment are sweet and the guns are crazy cool. There is a good variety to choose from. My favorite is the Flak. It's like a shotgun but on steroids. Not to mention, I really like the online deathmatches because if you only have 3 or 4 friends playing with you, you can turn the AI bots on and fill the room and adjust the settings. As long as you like FPS then this game is a must buy! This should hold you over until Gears of War 2.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Unreal Review Amazing
I picked this game first day it came out. Let's just say I was not disappointed. I rushed to my house popped the game in my 360 and played online. Went straight to VCTF. It was just awesome! Never had so much fun online with a game before! Best FPS shooter I've played in forever! Graphics are insane! I'm always awestruck en when I play this game. I would state a con about now on the graphics, but I just can't think of one! Back to online. I played every match type, I like VCTF the best, and enjoyed all of them. In my view the most challenging one is Warfare, very annoying as well. And it's always good to win a match and use taunts! Now a lot of people say the story isn't very good but I enjoyed every second of it. I don't know how it is to do alone but I played with a friend. We beat the game rather fast but are moving up to insane difficulty. In conclusion I'd have to say this game is a must buy for FPS fans, especially if you have online!

I have to say that I am sick of all the arguing over which game will be better for which system. UT3 is going to be an awesome game on 360 and PS3. All of the stuck up people who believe that Xbox live is better than the Ps3 online are right. It is better but wait a while and Sony will change it and the PS3 online will be the only thing to rival the powerhouse that is Xbox live. People haven't given sony a chance. Sure the PS3 has been out for nearly a year but I am seeing things starting to change, including the PS3 holiday line-up. This is way better than the 360 line-up. I have a PS3 and am wanting a 360 also. They both have awesome games coming but no one wants to realize that. The masterminds of Microsoft and Sony need to create a console together that will change all we know about video gaming. Personally, I could careless about the wii, but a combo of the 360 and PS3 would be the best thing in the world and noone can argue with that.

J-Money.. ummm.. out of curiosity what were the "tournament style" games you've played, and most of all.. how did you dodge the bullet of "Unreal """TOURNAMENT""" is beyond me. Only game that comes to mind is Quake, and Quake is not as indepth as Unreal Tournament by a large standard, unless we want to bring Quake Wars: Enemy Territory into the picture. I cry out in laughter everytime someone mentions or attempts to compare Halo to a more superior and well-known game throughout the FPS community. It also saddens me that a population of FPS'ers that diss Unreal Tournament and/or Quake even exists (I guess Halo must've created these.. things..) and still call themselves Gamers, when these very games set the standards for their FPSs today. Good Riddance, stick to the trashy slow-paced "I SHOOTZ UZ FI1STZZ 1 WINNZ" games and I'll stick to my skillful enjoyable "I dont give a crap if I die, we're here to have fun" game. :)
