    For those still interested in this wonderful franchise and specifically Unreal Tournament 3, I thought I'd share some of the "must have" packs, patches and tweaks. For anyone already playing, looking to play or simply curious, make sure to give these a look!

    ~NOTE~
    If you're a fan of the previous games but disliked UT3 for whatever reason, see if any of these following changes/addition might make you give it another chance :)

    OFFICIAL PATCHES/PACKS

    The latest patch is 2.1 - Fixes a ton of problems while slightly improving UI and general functionality - http://forums.epicgames.com/threads/663720-OFFICIAL-Titan-Expansion-and-Patch-Download-mirrors

    The latest pack is Titan Pack - New gametypes, new maps, new mutators, new characters - http://forums.epicgames.com/threads/663720-OFFICIAL-Titan-Expansion-and-Patch-Download-mirrors

    I actually bought this about 18 months ago with all the other unreal tounrament games for about a £5er, for that price I was stoked, my internet is too **** these days for online play which is annoying.

    to many game modes divides the game to much for how much players play the game.

    I bought it near the release and played for some time but then switched back to 2K4 (which is currently more active than UT3)

    Good Stuff! Glad to see this game still has fans :)

    I'm usually hanging around the Official Greed Server but have been searching for some NA CTF servers. Got any in mind? I'll also try and play more Warfare, it seems almost always populated. My game name is Wunderbar_007 so add me in friends if you wish.

    Also, has anyone given that color tweak a try? I'm curious to hear what you guys think. I think it's an improvement for the majority of the maps.

    I think I got this in a Steam package with some other versions (Wanted Unreal I and II, and got these as well). Is there a single-player campaign that isn't multiplayer with bots?

    There is a single player campaign (can also be played co-op) with a very thin story line but it is still presented as multiplayer matches vs corporations and clans. It's fun to get through with friends or if you're into achievements.

    Burnt_Ram, you are welcome :)

    Hmm... make sure you have latest patch and titan pack installed, some custom maps require both. Also, some maps come with additional texture files so place those where required. I'll update the page to show where to place custom content soon

    I´d love to play this from time to time, but mine just wont start for some reason.

    Having the Black Edition, and running it from steam. It asks if i want to launch the game or the Editor.
    Select game and loading mark shows on mouse for a moment, and nothing happens.

    Nice game to spend half of hour if bored or waiting on something, or more time.

    I agree, I have no idea why it died so fast. Very fun, I still play the single player from time to time.
