April '09 - I Miss Unreal Tournament.
long time ago I bought Unreal Tournament 3
for the PlayStation 3. Games like that are
normally a lot better on the PC but my PC isn't
fast enough to run it. I've never understood
why it's called Unreal Tournmant 3 because
there's been a lot more than two of them
already so it doesn't seem to make any sense.
main thing I love about it is the fact that
it's a game that you don't have to take
seriously, it's over the top and almost silly.
A lot of other first-person-shooters are set
during wartime with realistic guns and take
themselves too seriously but Unreal
Tournament is just a bit of fun. Even the
story in the game is just about winning the
tournament just for the sake of winning,
without there being a war or depth to the
story at all.
also love the pretend to be dead button, I've
never seen that in previous Unreal Tournament
games or any other game. You can pretend to
be dead and watch other characters ignore you
then jump up and shoot them.
I don't like about it is the big chunky fat
graphics, the low detail in the characters,
the fact that the game sometimes forgets what
character you selected and lots of other
little annoyances. There's been an update
patch that fixes a lot of these as well as
adding new features but I haven't been able
to download it yet.
PlayStation3 is broken and in the repair shop
and it's not ready yet. I've got plenty of
games to play but it's Unreal Tournament 3
that I miss the most. :(
