UT3 Grew On Me...

31 replies 22 views Edited Dec 18, 2007
My first intial response was very bad. I didnt like the gameplay, their was massive lagg in all the games and their were very few rooms to play in (their still is not allot of rooms, im actually surprised given al the hype etc, i thought their would be more rooms and just as much if not more players than Warhawk or COD4).
 
Eventually however, with a couple days of playing time the game actually grew on me, now i really like UT3:smileytongue:
 
However, still, i am not impressed with the graphics, i think they are very poor and didnt live up to my expectations. This however, i think is largly due to the fact that im using a SDTV as apposed to an HDTV. Maybe this game is not as SDTV friendly as other games such as warhawk or resistance/cod4 etc?
 
Also, their still isnt allot of players and lagg seems to be a persistent problem as their are not too many dedicated servers with low ping. Also, their are not many controller only games, infact more than double are "any" servers or KB/M servers, which is all fine and dandy as now i use my fragFX.
 
Anyways, its starting to grow on me and im really starting to enjoy the game, i cant wait for more crazy mods to come out, new vehicles and weapons and cray ass levels:smileytongue:
Only time will tell...
 
I just wish i had an HDTV damnit...

Well i only play team deathmatch and Warfare, thats about it...
 
Usually, their are only a choice of 3-5 servers that are dedicated for warfare. Likewise, team deathmatch only shows up on average 10 diff games, most of them being lagg ridden with high ping.

When you go through your server search options what are you choosing? Like dedicated only, No mouse and keyboard? etc..

Keep hitting refresh and eventually more servers will pop up.

i look for dedicated only server now because of the lagg i get on non-dedicated.
 
Also, now i allow KB/M servers by chosing ANY because control only servers their seems to be soo few of them.
 
I hide full servers and locked servers.
 
so yeah i usually with these setting dont see too many low ping games, and games in general...

Maybe this game doesn't look good on SDTV.  I've never played my PS3 on an SDTV, but I would rank UT3 third in the graphics department behind COD4 and Uncharted.

Yup, i dont think this game is totally optimized for SDTV as other games are or seem to be. The lack of gfx i am hoping is due to me not having an HDTV, which kinda sucks because i dont see myself getting one for at least 5 months
