    Why do you call it "THE major UT3 expansion"? Is there one planned? I for one will be very surprised if we see another real UT game.

    I don't see any missing gametypes.
    I see a really good Sniper Rifle (yes, a strong one* in UT3) which always make it up for the retarded UT2suck4's LG.

    Won't argue with you about the gameplay, which is objective.

    *stand still and shoot the head of someone.

    --------------
    For the other UT3 problems, I easily agree with you.

    I'm sorry. I know perfectly what you meant by this but it's such a funny quote out of context.:lol:

    I know it sounds weird.

    But then, it has been probably a decision of the devs to put few, certain gametypes in the game, it's not like something is "missing".

    The UT3 existing gametypes were the only ones I played in previous UT games, except DOM in UT1.

    Slow gameplay? Pardon? The gameplay is more fast paced, the most slow paced ut was ut2k4 one, the deahmatch was slow as hell as well as the movements unless you activated the mutators. Even ut2k3 was fast paced....
    UT3 has a right gameplay and the sniperrifle feels bit out of place indeed and isn't that fun to use, but if you learn it you can score with it even, although it takes some time the transition. But the other weapons mostly feel just right, the only complaints i have is against the deployables which should have been made more in U2mxp style(so you can switch weapons while holding them) and should have been more avaiable.

    I prefer the UT2004 snifer rifle. The UT3 sniper rifle feels too heavy and slow for my liking.

    What rifle, the Sniper Rifle or the LG? I think they were slow and ugly as hell.

    The pew pew weapon was the best.

    Not the electric charged lightning gun, but the typical sniper rifle with bullets.
    What "pew pew weapon"?

    Pew pew weapon = Shock Rifle.

    And no, the UT2k4 Sniper Rifle was meh honestly. Probably regarding the smoke effects and how weak it felt when shooting with it.

    ... were owning stand-still combo whores with flak-alt :D

    It was good to push mantas back, but pretty unfair when you play ping 180 vs 60

    Is this Michael Jackson comeback some kind of a joke or is it for real? I grew up with that music, I liked it back then. It's a little off-topic, so it could be a scarecrow analogy. (UT3 making a successful return is as likely as Michael Jackson will be "in" again.) I rather see them both making progress again.

    You can't state a major comeback unless it is actually happening, I haven't heard much, I haven't been looking either.

    Major expansions are plausible development, but how good they will be is still unknown.

    Its rather ugly aswell, the tracer looks more like an energy beam, the animations looks and feels speed up, when you hit someone they got that red haze that lits up the body oh and it looks ugly aswell.

    Also when you do hit someone all you get is a whimpy cloud of blood that lasts less than a fraction of a second, hardly any blood stains if any.

    Fragging someone is highly unrewarding aswell as they simply lump to the ground in an unspectacular fashion barely any blood.

    While scoring a direct headshot is a nice touch it dosent make up for the rest of the sniper rifle being a failure in everything else.

    Really serious opinions! :)

    The UT3 Sniper Rifle is what I call awesome. Great model, nice animations and sounds. And you feel the impact soon enough.
