Familar yet fresh
I havent played the UT series for a good few years and then it was on the PC so to go back to a series on a new platform was a bit of a chancer but from what ive seen of the PC version its prospects looked good. Theres definately a familar feel about the game for those that have played before but i do not necessarily class this as a bad thing - it had everything id expected with a few extras! The graphics are stunning (but for the occasional texture loading which can be resolved through installing the game to the harddrive i think). Single player is really a glorified tutorial but its adequate enough to prepare you for online play which is what the game is ultimately for. One thing ive noticed on consoles (im fairly new i guess) is the lack of clan support, which is a shame because i think if they can replicate that community/competitive functionality on the console then the long term is looking good for ps3. I find it funny that people instantly compare the game to CoD4 when the only commonality is the genre! Both games are brilliant in their own rights and cater for all types of fps fans (for me its instant, fast-paced action with and array of weapons and powerups). I think there are some some issues to address (if they can be) but overall an excellent delivery for a PC institution to a console.
