Summary: Unreal Tournament III was a little late in arriving to the Xbox 360 party, but it sure does make a grand entrance. Packing more features and modes than its PS3 counterpart, it is hard to deny that the best console version of UT3 is on the Xbox 360.
Excerpt: It’s an interesting irony that although there are plenty of games based on real sports, few were invented solely in the world of gaming. The one which arguably does buck that trend is Unreal Tournament.
Conclusion: You only have to fight the last mission of each chapter in insane mode, but the end of chapters 2 and 5 are challenging to say the least. The story is advanced through cut scenes, and is interesting and well rendered. Online multiplayer rarely has enough players these days for team matches.
Summary: Parents need to know that as a first-person shooter, this game is violent and gruesome: Blood splashes on environments on every kill, and in some instances, players are literally blown to bits, with flesh strewn across landscapes.
Conclusion: In the audio department, sounds effects are
amazing, delivering an authentic warfare
package, with weapons sending off a merciless
hit. The music, on the other hand, is decent but
upbeat, keeping the pace of the action
Excerpt: Unreal Tournament 3 is a first-person shooter and a sequel to previous, widely popular Unreal titles. PC and PlayStation 3 users received this game well over half a year before release on the XBox 360.
Summary: In UT3, you assume the role of a futuristic warrior engaged in contests of intense shooting battles against skilled opponents, controlled by human contestants online or by AI, fought with the most powerful sci-fi weapons and vehicles.
Excerpt: In a way, Unreal Tournament is a legend in its own rights. It pretty much started the whole fast paced, furious and bloody combat scene, and after the 5+ games that have been made under the Unreal franchise, this is the first game to hit the next generation consoles and it doesn’t disappoint that’s...
Summary: As a big fan of shooters with more strategy to them, it was tempting to mark UT3 down a bit for doing the same old 'run-and-gun' stuff. In the end, however, the game does what it does extremely well and deserves the credit.
