Unreal Tournament III
Great great great
Well here we go. For everyone wondering about this game just as i was " Is there any online play to it still" YES YES YES there it is. I just bought it and it has the best online i have ever played and the matches are found really quick. no problem at all finding a match at all. it is insane. Theres Deathmatches where there is 35 ppl in one map and see who can get the most kills within 20 minutes. I have reached up to 224 kills. The graphics are sick. I own Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Halo 3, this is now my favorite. BUT!!! The storyline for the campaign pretty much sucks, theres not a whole lot of story line to it, but i bought this game specifically for online play and i fell in love as soon as that little green light lit up on my xbox. I recommend this game for everyone!!!
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 :)
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.
fun fun fun
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.
Great game to play 3-4 times
Ok. I got this game when it first came out. I played through the storyline in co-op mode. Had a blast. The weapons and level's covered up the repeat of games you had to play. You had to compete against the locus in two game types. Team deathmatch and Capture the Flag and Destroying the nodes.(Forgot what it was called). In capture the flag, you are placed on these hoverboard's and given a weapon. It takes some time getting used to the board's,but its a blast when you do. Only this is it was too easy on normal. Wished I would have beat the game on insane(or the hardest difficulty). But the campaign is real fun. On to ONline. This is the fastest gameplay ive played on the xbox360. You Really have to be on your P's and Q's to survive. I recommend playing through the single player before trying online. Or playing matchest against the bots. This game is really really fun.
UT3 = GotY 2008
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.
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.

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!
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!
