ut3's graphics underrated

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
while the game went fairly unnoticed by most..and even i was let down by the the graphics to some extent(compare them with the pre release) i will say the game itself doesnt trail far behidn crysis if at all..if only they had included actual HDR and some object motion blur it would have been just asp retty as that "other game"

ehres a screenie i took owning some novice bots

Personally, I think UT3's graphics are amazing.... its like gears of war but better, and more advanced... shame theres no AA though

Not to mention that the game runs flawlessly even on budget gaming rigs... which you can't say about "That other game" hell.... it barely even runs on high end systems.

well, its not a very good screenshot at all, if the camera was turned 180 degrees so you could actually see something, and not just a brick wall and a character model (which probably isn't on max) the picture would look much better.

i think you could get AA on nvidia cards in ut3,but still the game's graphics are surely very good.as far as bloom is concerned,the muted mode does decrease it to the level when it stops hurting the eys.although i am a die hard ut fan,still i think crysis was a better game,too bad its mp did not take off like cod4.

Very true, many games are on the same engine as UT3, such as Bioshock and Gears. The graphics are amazing, I should take some good screenies .

i love the graphics on UT3, the textures are very good - especially indoors. The engine also has very good rain and water effects which are shown in the screenshots below. The only problem is the fact that there is no AA which seems a bit stupid when they go and make a game look that nice, then make it have jagged edges everywhere. here are a couple of my screenshots to show off the graphics. Click the thumbnails then click full size

There is AA in all unreal 3 engine games, it was recently added in Catalyst 8.3.
You have to force it in CCC and if u have Nvidia I'm pretty sure forcing it works.
