Unreal Tournament III Review
Image via WikipediaUnreal Tournament III, isn't what the name would suggest, it's a common FPS multiplayer with online game play. The game shares similar characteristics with Gears of War II, which came out in the same year. The style of the game is a fast paced FPS game with splendid graphics, effective game play and memorable gimmicks.
I've played both of them on the PS3 and Xbox 360, there's slight sound glitches with the PS3 version, but that might just be me. Other than that, it's a pretty great FPS for the price, I mean, I got it pre-owned at Gamestop for $5.00, for game like that, it's a steal.
Let's begin with the cons:
Whenever your starting a match, it takes a few seconds for the textures to load, which is somewhat irritating. The problem should be eliminated if the game is installed on the hard drive. Another con is that the control settings are difficult to adjust for "n00bs" to FPS games. The campaign, it's a little tiresome to just be fighting bots throughout the story line. Speaking of which, the story-line lacks character development, the only way you actually find out about the characters is when your browsing through them in the player selection. As far as I've seen, the game's story-line doesn't even involve most of the characters. The chapter where your in matches with the Liandri seemed to be just filler, the only time when the matches seem to have a point is the end where you're in matches with the Necris.
Now to begin the pros:
Starting with the Gameplay. When your in the heat of battle, you tend to have your adrenaline pumping, which that itself is an achievement. There's a colorful selection of weapons ranging from a shock-rifle to a powerful rocket launcher. There is a wide selection of levels to choose from and the design of the battlefields look pretty great. The vehicles are inconvenient, but you can have so much fun riding in the scorpion or the manta. Overall, this is a pretty good game, I would recommend this game to anyone, especially since it's so cheap nowadays.
