    unreal is one of thoose games where there is nothing really flashy and it doesnt do really any thing new but it is fun all be it not long term fun . its fast paced action shooting and it does it pretty well. the story mode is a joke its just a playing the maps with a bunch of bots trying to come up with reasons why you should be capturing a Flag .. LOL. i will say though i hate capture theunreal is one of thoose games where there is nothing really flashy and it doesnt do really any thing new but it is fun all be it not long term fun . its fast paced action shooting and it does it pretty well. the story mode is a joke its just a playing the maps with a bunch of bots trying to come up with reasons why you should be capturing a Flag ..

    It's not the best game of it's kind definitely, I bought it used and there's no regret. The story it's not so good either but I liked the characters, the controls are not so tight as they should be in any FPS, the weapons are not good either, what use do you have for a sniper rifle if all the fighting happens in no more than 40 steps from each other and they are all moving/running targets,It's not the best game of it's kind definitely, I bought it used and there's no regret.

If you are new to FPS this might be entertaining to you. Expand

    For this game to say it has a campaign or single player mode is laughable. All the "campaign" mode is is multiplayer with AI Bots and cut scenes. The muliplayer is alright, it's nothing special and I wasn't into it but I won't give it a bad score for that. My only real complaint about the multiplayer is that all the levels feel pretty much the same, they look different and For this game to say it has a campaign or single player mode is laughable.

My only real complaint about the multiplayer is that all the levels feel pretty much the same, they look different and they are not all shaped the same but somehow I kept getting a feeling of repetition as I was playing. If you are a fan of the unreal franchise I guess it's more of the same and you should like it (some of the weapons were cool) but if you are new to ps3 like I am I would recommend renting this one first.

    This game can't be compared to COD4, GOW and so on - it's a totally different ball-game. I'ts a matter of taste, not about quality - and you simply can't compare taste. I can see why people find the stats, perks, achievements and leaderboards of COD4 great - I do too, and I really miss these things in UT3. But this is still a great game; fastpaced and violently fun.

I don't understand the comments about online-lag. I've been playing onine for 8-9 hours and havn't experienced ANY lag at all. For offline players though - the singleplayer is dull. This game should be experienced online. It's nice that this game supports mouse and keyboard - but I read that it doesn't have chat-support and that's a giant flaw. All in all a fast (not lagging), fun and beautiful sight to behold. Expand

    Very disappointed in this game. The controls suck, the graphics are grainy and not very polished whatsoever, the vehicles are an abomination. I just can't get into this game when there is so much else that's better out there. I'd rather play Quake III Arena for my PC which is years and years old than this brand new atrocity.

  1. Even though the PC version runs faster, Unreal Tournament III for the PlayStation 3 is an outstanding first-person shooter. All of Tournament's frenetic action stays intact, both in the jam-packed single player campaign and numerous multiplayer modes. The graphics explode onto the screen with little loss in detail.
  2. Long-time fans are essentially playing the same game rebuilt with a new graphics engine. But, do not fret – the gameplay is still whole-heartedly entertaining. For PS3 fans, the large-scale combat is particularly the most intriguing part to experience online.

    One of the highlights of the year for Net-connected PS3 owners. For many, this will be a fresh experience, lessening the impact of the modest mode options and lack of some fan favorites from prior versions. At the same time, the lessons learned over the years of iteration and the sparkling new graphics engine make this the latest and greatest version for fans of the series.
