    or did the UT3 popularity not last long? Don't get me wrong, I love the game, but the other day I went to find a game and their were hardly any.

    yeah.. seeing as tho it came out on PC and PS3 first I doubt many peps would want to play it on 360 (although a few of my friends have it) it just doesn't offer anything that the previous platforms don't already have.

    I think it coming out on other platforms earlier affects it. Most of all, I think that game is such a PC game that it's meant to be played on the PC, and at the very least using mouse and keyboard which only the PS3 has. I here it's good on the 360, but Unreal just has this image of a PC game.

    The UT3 community pretty much evaporated and went back to UT2K4

    thats disappointing. oh well, its till my favorite 360 game, just a little buggy. my best guess is that it lost popularity because most 360 users are acustomed to slower, strategy oriented games (halo 3, cod 4).

    Personally, I hate mouse and keybaord, but yes UT definitely seems like a PC game. I love the game on 360 because I like the use of a controller and loved all the orignal maps, but sadly the community just died out.

    It was out on the PS3 and PC for a while now and most of us have more than one console or atleast a good PC.

    I was talking to someone in a 19 round Raven Down match a few secodns ago about this, and pretty much they said that. Specifically, they said 'Yeah, I bought the game, watched the Gears 2 footage, then went to do campaign and was shocked it was an FPS. I thought it was going to be exactly like Gears, I was f*cking wrong."

    My response: "It's the people who made Unrela that made Gears, not the other way around dude.."

    To me UT2K4 was alot more fast paced and frantic.
    Also, the graphics weren't completely gritty and dark like gears, it kinda makes it hard to identify enemy's easily.
    UT2K4 Just feels more fluid.

    So a game that was really a spinoff to the main series is better than a game that is in the main series of UT?

    I liked it, but I didn't love it. I guess I'm just not good enough of a Unreal Tournament player to enjoy endlessly fragging random dudes.

    But with all the endless fragging of people, it still feels like your achieving nothing. No ranks or stats. Just pure play.
    I guess that could be some of the reason it didn't catch on

    Sadly, I found the game and multiplayer to be quite monotonous.  I will be trading this one in. :(

    tbh this was one of the selling points for me. i can freely play, screwing up as many times as i want to. its not so stressful like hao where your thinking "oh crap if i dont kill someone before xxslayerdudexx i dont rank up!" if i want to play cometitively, i can hop onto gamebattles and look for a match.

    I was going to get it, but if the popularity is already dwindling, I think I'll reconsider.

    I don't think any game will have the impact Unreal Tournament had and the community Unreal Tournament 2004 had.

    The lack of ranks and stats is one of the main reasons why Unreal III isn't as successful as its predecessors.

    The franchise is just boring now. People want more strategic shooters; CoD4 might not require the most thought, but it's more than just a run-and-gun. The fact that they released the same game 3 different times didn't help either.

    Games that are only online don't seem to last long on the 360.
