    For now, all you need to know is this: UT3 is the killer, exclusive PS3 app we hoped it'd be, and if you're not playing it, you're missing out on some damned good times. [Feb 2008, p.82]
  2. Unreal Tournament III is a must-own PS3 title for anyone who enjoys frantic online shooters and total mayhem.
  3. 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.

    Were it to include a killer campaign this would be a game that is hard to beat - as it stands it is still an impressive first outing on the PS3.
  5. Aside from some online hiccups, it is fast, furious, and fun to play, and never fails to impress from a visual perspective. As a result, it stands up favorably against the other strong multiplayer shooters available on the platform.

    With its fast paced action, powerful visuals and some of the best vehicles and weapons ever seen on an online environment, UT III is tailor made for anyone who craves for online competition. [March 2008]

    Technically very accomplished and graphically gorgeous, but ultimately unsatisfying, even in online multiplayer. [Feb 2008, p.102]

It lacks gimmicks though like halo and CoD4, but if you want fast and furious gameplay, fantastic graphics, well designed levels, and a bunch of weapons that would be overpowered by themselves in any other game, get this.

Playing team DM with bots is really fun and will improve multiplayer skills for online. Downloadable user content is a great plus. Expand

I have beaten the campaign many times and it never gets old. The campaign can be beaten in under 4 hours if you are skilled. There's plenty of weapons and vehicles to choose from. The game play is sic. Its a shame they took down the servers recently though since the online portion of the game was also a lot of fun. Expand

    Very Good Game. Probably the best FPS for the PS3 so far. Plays well, looks fantastic, no slowdown. Using the SixAxis is a little wonky, but Very Good Game.

If you like FPS and have a PS3, Get this Game. Expand

    If games like Ghost Recon as simulation, this is as arcade as it gets. And it's surprisingly refreshing. Fast like no other, instant fun If games like Ghost Recon as simulation, this is as arcade as it gets. And it's surprisingly refreshing. Fast like no other, instant fun like no other. You've got killed? Then respawn and go frag the bastard back. Unlike most campaign mode FPS games where they kill you and you have to tediously start the mission all over again, in here you just go for vengeance. I also enjoy that if you play the campaign mode and choose to play it as "public game", you will play and progress through the exact same campaign mode as "no public" with the difference that any given minute, any of your computer controlled teammates might be replaced by a real person who is also playing campaign somewhere in the world. My only gripe, no voice chat support. It's so gory, bloody and futuristic and at the same time it doesn't apologize for it. Loved it. My advice, rent it. If you like it, buy it. Expand

I'ts a matter of taste, not about 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

This means NO offline multiplayer! A significant disappointment in my book, especially as I found this out after opening the game. If you ONLY want to play online multiplayer, the rating would definitely be higher, but without split-screen, I have to rate this as a big zero. Expand
