 Consolised franchise killer

| | See all Angeret's reviews (9)

What can I say. I've been a player of the Unreal/UT series since day one and I wish I hadn't bought this release.

Having read through the official forums I found several problems where people can't play the single player game unless the whole thing is played in one go - or it will trash your progress.

The User interface has been become much like a PS3 front end and is awkward to navigate and it appears the game was playtested on joypads, not a mouse/kbd User in sight.

There are glitches in the game which cause lockups - you will need to manually edit config files to fix this and other issues. For those that don't like dodging, it's on by default and again, you need to edit a .cfg to change that.

Multiplayer also has issues - one is that you'll need an uber PC to get more than jerk-o-vision.

Graphics are very nice although much overdone - the game has plenty of bling in that department, also the sound is okay but again, overdone, with multiple music tracks that will kick in & out as the game requires. It may get choppy when music suddenly changes every few seconds depending on the level of action.

Bots now have Artificial Stupidity - they've been seen firing into the air, into the ground, at teammates - especially the Player when carrying the flag, thereby making a team-kill - and clustering in areas where there may be a texture bump.

Assault and Double Domination have been removed, as has any feeling of gameplay to make room for all the pretty graphics, some of which may be headache inducing - for example, CTF-Coret now looks like a holo-neon shopping mall, not a disused base. Plenty of bling, no soul.

I'm sorry to say that UT3 has become a console port which feels more like a driveby shooting than a face to face FPS. Maybe future patches will take care of the issues, maybe this will be UT2k3 again. Nevertheless, I deleted the game and am now looking for a buyer for my Collector's Edition. The game is dead for me, I'm going back to UT'99 where the games are fast & FUN.

Bear in mind that this is how I found the game to be, also how others from the Epic forums have described their experiences. Plenty of people have either had no problems or are too much fanboi to admit there are issues. Your mileage may vary. If there's a demo, be advised that you should download and play that first to get an idea of how it will look/perform on your system.

 Best in the UT series by a long way !

Bought this game and have been hooked since. As well as online, there is also offline game play in case if you don't want to play with others via the internet. Graphics wise, it's amazing. If you have a powerful spec machine, play it at high res with maximum detail.

Both the normal and collector edition contain the Unreal editor which I wanted to learn to create my own maps. Main reason for buying the collector edition is that they include video tutorials to teach you the basics. The collector edition also comes in a tin box with an art book. To tell you the truth, it's nothing major. I've seen much better collector versions than this. If you're into the game and do not want to learn about the editor then get the normal version.

 Doesn't disappoint

I've been playing the unreal tournament games from the beginning and have been counting down the release of UT2007 since back in 2005 when it was announced. After the release date was put back (I think 4 times in the last year) so that they could make the game as perfect as they could, I was extremely excited when it finally arrived.
First off, the metal case looks beautiful, the artwork book is even more beautiful with twice the amount of art in it as you'll find in the halo mini-book (if you brought the spec. ed. halo game).
After installing the game, I was disappointed to find that my computer only just runs at the minimum spec for the game and the graphics are rather blotchy but that's due to my computer, not the game. I played it later on my dad's PC and it really did look excellent. Take note that to get this game to look its best, you will need a good PC.
Since I got it, I've been playing it non-stop, working through the campaign and the instant action battles. The only thing I have noticed is how quickly you learn all of the maps, there just aren't enough, but with the Collectors edition you don't need to worry, there's 20 hours of unreal engine 3 toolset tutorials to help you make your own mods for the game.
I was pleased to see the classic Coret map has returned from one of the very first Unreal Tournament games and when you look at this map you can see how far the franchise has really come. The Deimos space station (another of my favourites) is back as well but don't think that the game is just old maps remodelled and given a thick coat of make-up; there are a number of maps that are instant classics, such as Necropolis, Hydrosis and Gateway, which involves a number of portals between different parts of the world.
I haven't played this game online very much (due to the fact there are psycho's on there that slaughter everybody) but when I have had even teamed matches they have been very good. The campaign can also be played online, much like gears of war, with up to 4 players.
Overall, an excellent game that you will be able to revisit again and again, with some of the best graphics on the market. I'd recommend this game to anyone that is into fact paced first-person shooters.
Halo 3 had the most hype this year for being the best game of the year, but I think this game deserves at least 2nd place if not higher!

 A very awaited game

First of all, the game is still installing. I am so psyched with the game that Im writing a review just for the contents of the special edition.

First of all, the game is presented in a very good tin box, with a booklet with pictures and art from the game. Flip the box, and it opens from the back to reveal a bonus dvd with movies and extra content.

Overall, well worth the extra 10 pounds.

Review of the actual game will follow.
