Since the last Unreal Tournament game was released four years ago,
no worthy contender has managed to dethrone the now-classic shooter as
the best game for online deathmatches. With the much-delayed Unreal
Tournament 3, we get the uneasy feeling that Epic Games has grown a bit
complacent with its multiplayer crown. The game’s brand-new graphics
engine and glut of maps mask some very familiar weapons and gameplay
mechanics. And while we appreciate that the developers haven’t broken
from a proven design formula, we’re disappointed by the lack of
innovation in this long-awaited sequel.
