Unreal Tournament 3 is a first person shooter for the Xbox 360 built by the same studios that brought Gears of War to the Microsoft console.

Unreal Tournament 3 can be divided into two parts - you can either play a campaign (with story-like missions) or opt for some multiplayer action.

Xbox 360 Elite review.

I enjoyed working through the missions and getting used to the controls (which didn't take too long at all) The AI of your enemies is clever and at times challenging (in a good way). And overall going from mission to mission in Unreal Tournament 3 is an enjoyable process.

But the real fun of playing Unreal Tournament 3 is to go online and take on human opponents. Once you've mastered the missions it's time to show your real skills and prove to the world that you're the best.

There are a number of options for different kinds of online games (deathmatch, team deathmatch, and some others). Of course, it depends on your connection, but in our experience the speed and responsiveness of online Unreal Tournament 3 games was good.

So how does Unreal Tournament 3 match up to its predecessor? Well, the graphics are excellent, good use of shadows make the game feel darker. The controls are really easy to get the hang of and within minutes you are able to comfortably adapt to the game.

OUR VERDICT

Unreal Tournament 3 is like a cross between Halo and Gears of War – and if you are a fan of either/both of those games then you're gonna love it. It's a great version of a classic PC game.
