    Try 16 on biohazard;)

    Still though, I love UT3, and it's an AWESOME game.
    I've played all the latest and greatest, Crysis, Halo 3, Gears of War, Resistance, CoD4, yet I haven't had as much fun in any of them as I have in UT3 regularly.

    Plus, any game that doesn't feature shock combos automatically receives a -5 penalty to fun;)

    16?? How about 32? Now that's just overkill!

    For all its little faults this is the only video game I have (out of quite a few across the PC, 360, and PS3 including most of the latest "hot" titles) that I play everyday. I even thought that DMC4 would pull me away but nope ... stopped playing that and reinstalled UT3 and I am as hooked as ever ... I guess I play UT2k4 and Gears and Crysis as well but not as much. Actually I play UT3 and Ut2K4 regularly ... the others maybe once or twice a week. Although once I get those Gears of War cheats working I know I will be playing that game all the time. I really wish Gears had bots like UT3.

    I bought this game for the PS3 just so I could enjoy it downstairs on my big screen and also to help out folks who wanted to play this on the PS3. And yes I will buy it for the 360 when it comes out as long as it has some extra content or at least split screen offline support so I can play friends at my house.

    Exactly. :) And I am a big Halo fan ... I thought I would never get tired of Halo 3 but after two playthroughs I was pretty much done .. I still think it is a fun game which at some point I am going to play through again but no bots mean that its the same old scripted fights over and over when you are like me and don't play online. At least with the bots they really change up with each match ... no two matches is ever the same (except the outcome :D ) For people who don't play online there is just no shooter that can compare with the UT series (some people say Quake III Arena but no way is that game more fun than UT3 imo, we won't even talk about looks).

    A couple of nice things that may not have been mentioned already:

    The "I see the blue screen" death comment from robots.

    The ability to aim in third-person.

    The art overall is great. I'd love to see some more city maps. :)

    Yeah me two ... those are my favorite ... there is not a day that goes by (well almost) where I don't play at least one match on Defiance. I love that map ... I really think it is the best DM map in UT3 and so far not one map I have seen beats it ... as good as some of the user created ones are ... even the remakes Defiance sets a standard to me that is just hard to beat. It has it all. Z-axis action galore but implemented to perfection not forced at all. An underground tunnel several larger areas to fight in ... a few CQC areas, great connectivity and flow ... NO dead ends, fantastic looks, amazing attention to the little details, great item placement ... the perfect amount of health vials and orbs. I mean man that map rocks. I'm still waiting for one on that level.

    I love w0rfhair and vCTF (which sucked in 2k4 for the most part but Epic nailed it this time yay), love the maps, characters and just about everything else too... Long live UT3 :)

    What part of the nearly nonexistent avril ammo, vehakal spawn raping (blowing up enemy vehakals before someone gets in them), manta/viper spawn raping, and flag camping in the tank in VCTF is cool? :con:

    Duel is pretty fun in UT3. Problem is, we've only got 2 stock maps that are duel-worthy (and that's counting deck :))

    I have to admit I like quite a bunch of things about it. The main thing you notice is the return of a more UT-classic gameplay, style and of course main menu song. After that, the way they made that bloom effect is very beautiful, even if a little too much. The vehicles and node-game (since its named differently from 2k4) are almost the same and its very good as I loved the way they worked in the last UT. More gameplay complexity is also very welcome. Otherwise, there are other nice things and others that can be gotten over :)

    No blind praise at all, there are a lot of things to like about UT3, and patch 2 was progress in the right direction. Since I've gotten patch 2 I've been playing everyday. Like yourself, I play LAN matches offline because I can administer my own server and play with people I know and don't have to deal with any jerkwads.

    Agree 100% with you and that's one of the things I like most about UT3, is that they got rid of the Lightning Gun and replaced it with a kickass Sniper Rifle that's far more useful and formidable than the LG ever was.

    What in the Patch 1.2 has made you changed your mind?

    Bot's aren't making me the primary target anymore, only if I'm first in their line of sight. Also, I can now hear bots taunting back and forth to one another when I'm spectating -- something that was never mentioned in the patch release, but was a welcome addition nonetheless, at least for me.

    Also, web server admin is now possible.

    Last night, I played CTF-Coret ( a map I seldom ever played in UT99, in spite in of its popularity and the number of hours I played UT99) in a 4 vs 4 match with bots and it was KICKASS fun. Also I found a couple of good custom CTF maps ( Safegaurd & TwistedFace).

    So there is hope for the game, IF epic will fill in the missing pieces and fix what's broken.

    I feel so happy whenever I see this thread on top of the forum when I return here after being away for a while.

    The post that I have quoted; win.

    Especially that last comment. I preferred many of UT99's features to 2k3's. [There are only two things I liked better about UT2k3 than UT99. Ragdoll meshes and I preferred 2k3's robot characters.]

    It's nice to know there ARE people out there who DO like this game as a whole.

    A lot of you are complaining "TEH GAEMPLAY'S TOO SAMEY!!111OMGWTFBBQ" and sure, it may be a bit samey, and maybe there is a lack of mods and maps. But I'm sure it's definitely something modders for UT3 can get around. Isn't that what modders do? Make the game more fun for us? Give us a better gameplay experience than the vanilla package does? Sure, I haven't added any mods yet but I still find UT3 a very entertaining game.

    I'm not trying to change anyone's minds here, but if you don't like it, and may be boycotting it.. You have no idea what you're missing.

    I really like the gameplay too. In fact I got no complaints at all. People not satisfied with how the game plays must be deliberately messing up the game just to get to dislike something openly at the forums.

    Their disappointment is based in other things than the actual game.

    One thing that gets old is the botmatches and even online play. It's not bad at all, it just repeat itself over and over. What I am longing for is pure single player adventure action, just as Unreal once was.

    I would totally love it if some group decided to do a singleplayer campaign with missions that can be played in coop. The characters are already in the games, no conversations are needed. Enemies could be novice or average bots without respawn and they start hunting you as soon as they see you.

    Still, there is nothing like playing a new good looking deathmatch map these days.

    32 in Tank crossing. All running for the middle node. Now that was a tough match.

    I'm just glad I have an UnrealEd that supports normal mapping and a bunch of other features. That's why I first didn't do much work in UnrealEd for UT2k4, as there was no bump mapping, etc. as it was an older game, so I was "forced" to <shudder> work with Hammer.
    :D

    Bump maps are great. I wonder what Unreal Engine 4 will contain?
