Unreal Tournament 3 review

Wisely not counting UT2003

Luckily, multiplayer is downright dramatic, dynamic, ridiculous, brutal and tense, though the browsing and matchmaking could use a polish.There’s also a bizarre trend toward hiding information you have a basic gamer’s right to know: outside of regular Deathmatch, there aren’t even any death reports in UT3. That means you never find out how you died in Warfare or CTF. While games like Call of Duty 4 and Team Fortress 2 are showing what a fantastic improvement it is to be shown precisely why you died, it’s bizarre that UT won’t even tell you how. It’s worth bearing in mind, though, that much of it may be fixed.
