Same... minus the playing it for 20 minutes. I literally installed the game, played for around 2 hours... and have never played it again... it doesn't feel like UT to me and I have been a fan since the original, and they basically raped and crapped all over the fun that was UT/UT2k3/4... I hate it.

Ditto that. First Unreal title that I have skipped.

Played the demo and then took it off my list.

Give me Unreal 1 remake for PS3 with some decent MP (not mandatory) and I'll buy this game for 100%. UT3... I'd like to have this game, but as there's no demo for PS3 I'd rather try other games where I'm sure Single Player mode is at least good.

It's incredible that a game that took so much time can feel so rushed

UT3 really doesn't add anything significantly new to the mix, it is very much like the previous ones just with flasher graphics, smoother speeds, and a mix of new vehicles/weapons, the gameplay is pretty much the same.

I'd go out on a limb and say that people (except the Japanise) are getting bored with the third/fourth/fifth installment of the same thing.

UT3 SUCK across the board, not just for PS3. The game is a dud.

The last chance for UT3 will be on the Xbox 360.

If it cannot sell, riding on Epic and GoW fame, at least 500K copies in its first month then it's clear that the market doesn't like it. I don't think Epic needs more proof.

I think that UT3 isn't that bad of a game but to me it's just not as good as previous UT games. There aren't very many maps, the guns are on speed so every weapon can kill a tank in a few seconds, and the graphics don't look like Unreal, they look like Gears of War.

I want to know why they didn't work with Digital Extremes on this one. 2k3 and 2k4 were made hand in hand with Digital Extremes. This one seems to be a remake of the orignal with Gears' graphics. If you pay attention a majority of the CTF and DM maps are just updated UT99 maps.

What amazes me, is this is truly one of the first times I've seen a thread where just about everyone is completely in agreement with each other.

UT3 apparently sucks to all different types of personalities and gamers out there.

Time for another emergency interview by Mark Rein to downplay the disappointing sales and lack of people playing online.
