    I saw this years ago, way before UT3 came out.

    It may look nice but can they fix the crappy 3d engine? never has a game felt more odd than unreal. If they would license one of the quake engines then add unreals gameplay they might have something.

    Unreal you have come along way. Loved you since the beginning. Improved yes, easy to work with yes, bad game, not yes. crappy 3d engine, not ever. if you take away the unreal engine, 90 percent of todays games would cease to exist or still be in development. And they would never have turned out as good as they did. Rainbow Six, Gears, even Wheelman. Any engine that can be a first person or third person or even a fast paced racing action game has no reason to change the way the 3d engine works. Stewmeat.. dumbest post ever.

    Why is this being posted now? I saw it ages ago, before UT3 was even released. This is nothing new.

  9. You can really see the evolution, very cool
