Unreal Tournament III - game review
Three years of waiting, dozens of screens and films, thousands of players drooling over each news. Finally there is! The king of online FPS has seen the light of day. Fire on Quake , Counter-Strike and Enemy Territory . Every Unreal fan knows that the most important thing is ... Unreal and that's it. Okay, enough of these lyrics by a fan. You have to approach the matter sober, because it was Unreal Tournament III that was to give players a real kick in the senses. How does it actually look like? I invite you to review the player who ate his teeth during the series and did not have time to spit them out.
I was wondering for a long time where to start this text. The reason is really surprising. With all the beauty surrounding the latest installment of the shootout, it's quite controversial. There will probably be those who will reject unfavorable voices and focus their attention only on the brand. It is true that the third part has changed. The first is the pace of the game. Already in the 2k4 edition, the speed of the matches was dizzying. Now the dynamics of fights is even greater. There are often situations when we shoot at empty nooks and crannies where the opponent may theoretically appear. Telepathic skills in novice players will be appreciated. The murderous rhythm of the clashes has its advantages. A long time ago - I underline this word - I have not met a shooter that triggers so much adrenaline and the need to compete. Running, jumping, shooting, we feel like a half-god, almost like in a matrix. Rockets, laser beams, energy orbs fly over heads, and the fun is great. It is also a return to the roots, almost old school. In the era of today's online shooters seasoned with tactics and a bit of realism, UT3 seems to be as detached from reality as a title as possible. No one forgives mistakes here. It's nice that someone remembers about the first generation of Tournament and Quake 3 Arena. We can find all this in a classic deathmatch.
For lovers of the previous part, the Warfare mode remained for dessert, which is a development of the well-known and beloved Onslaught. The mode takes users to a larger-than-standard battlefield with a network of power nodes connecting two cores (one for each team). Gaining knots deprives the opposing team's core of a force field, and then it is exposed to attacks. The rules remained unchanged. However, the developers decided to enrich the gameplay with a few ideas. Each team is equipped with a magic ball (orb). This gadget allows you to quickly build a node. Just climb onto the small platform (foundation for the knot) and admire the newly created spawn for your allies. The owner of the ball must be responsible. Losing an orb is the end of dreams of a quick victory. The second novelty is the abandonment of the translocator (it appears in other modes) in favor of the hoverboard. In my opinion, the idea works great. There is not enough vehicles for everyone, but we were not forced to walk fruitlessly around the map. A board for feet and we are already enjoying a smooth ride on the off-road. For extreme sports enthusiasts, there is one more bonus. You can attach yourself to the vehicle using a welding machine. It is similar to water skiing, with one exception - be careful with the walls, because you can become part of them by accident.
Unreal Tournament III has been stripped of several modes present in previous releases at the same time. I still could get over the lack of Bombing Run and Mutant, but who was bothered by Assault? It was a real icing on the cake, a great alternative for players looking for new impressions and aggressive gameplay. The three were deprived of this fun and it's hard to understand what the creators were guided by when deciding to take this step. The lack of new weapons is also striking. The changes only affect the appearance of the guns. On the other hand, it would be hard to part with Flak, Minigun or ASMD Rifle. These are inherent elements of the series. However, new vehicles are favorable, especially on the side of the Necris. Biomechanical toys wreak havoc on any map. The sight of the Pomrok's tripod is awe-inspiring, and the Sweeper is a bull's-eye, a specific competitor for the beloved Manta. The Axon website was enriched with SPMA self-propelled mobile artillery and the Paladin all-terrain vehicle (the similarity to today's APC is striking). Some of the older cars have been tuned. For example, a rocket boost has been added to the Scorpio to allow it to jump over obstacles with long jumps.
However, it was not the vehicles that were supposed to snap their jaws down. This was to be done by the binding. And this one is simply brilliant. Razor-sharp textures, no angular models, great special effects - just Unreal Engine 3. This game looks exactly the same as in the promotional photos. The whole thing looks great and probably the best FPS available on the market. One can argue that Crysis is nicer, but UT3 deals the final blow with phenomenal code optimization. I can't find words to praise the gentlemen from Epic Games for a great job done. Let the facts speak for me. On AMD X2 3800+ hardware, 1 GB RAM and Geforce 7900 GS, the title flashes without a hitch at almost maximum details. On internet forums you can already read opinions that the game works very well on older configurations. The appearance of the levels is another demonstration of the engine's capabilities. The board designs are brilliant. The authors were inspired by oriental climates, hence probably the Asian character of most maps. The design changes dramatically in the Warfare mode. There we were treated to the apocalyptic style. There was even a place for the popular, pimped up Torlan. Unreal's audio setting has always been a model for other online shooters. It is no different this time. The ambient music is ear-catching, and the fighting sounds are also pleasing. Various messages, taunts and insults from bots sound very nice. Until you want to give them one more time. :-)
There is no rose without thorns and the latest edition seems to confirm this well-worn rule. Epic Games had a few technical mishaps, fortunately possible to be removed. The game likes to mess with some antivirus programs and graphics card models. At the first run, I advise you to read the attached documents and mix it up in files with the "ini" extension. In my case, it was necessary to force streaming of textures, as loading them directly into memory ended up with the view of the Windows desktop. The second drawback is quite a cumbersome menu. The selected font is not readable, so it is easy to click on "Quit the game". This is the price you pay to release an item on consoles. In addition, the campaign looks poor. It can be played in Cooperative mode with friends at your side, but it's not the same as online carnage. However, the intro to the campaign is graphically different and it is worth activating this mode even for him.
Unreal Tournament III is a great opportunity to return to the past. The three is much closer to the original than its predecessor, enriched with a great audiovisual setting. On the other hand, not everyone will like the pace of the game. The insane speed will discourage players who expect something more than a computer "clickfest". Anyway, you have to play the new Tournament. At least to get to know the new version of the engine and its capabilities. To sum up - a very good proposition for a strong end to the year.
