YMMV: Unreal Tournament III
See also:
  • Crazy Awesome: Bishop.
  • Critical Backlash: Sure, it isn't Unreal Tournament or Unreal Tournament 2004, but Unreal Tournament III has received a lot of unfair misblaming for what it isn't rather for what it is.
  • Epileptic Trees: Debates are still on about if he's the same Othello as the one who was in the Thunder Crash team in the past Tournament games.
  • Game Breaker:
    • The Shock Rifle combo and the Sniper Rifle.
    • The Darkwalker in DM-HeatRay.
    • The turret in the map DM-Deimos.
  • Gameplay Derailment: A lot of people complained that the vehicles derailed the fast gameplay of UT3, even when vehicles aren't available in common gametypes. (Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag... well, there's just one exception, but still...)
  • Misblamed: Although often referred to as a flop, and even one of the biggest failures in videogame history, in reality only the PC version sold particularly poorly on its initial release. The console versions actually sold pretty well, and even the PC version began selling a lot better (albeit at a significantly discounted price) when it was brought to Steam. Unfortunately though, even the console versions got overshadowed by the likes of Halo 3, which led to impressions that the series was yesterday's news.
  • Player Punch: In the final battle, you'll receive three "X has fallen" messages. Replace X for Othello, Jester and Bishop. And then, in the final cutscene, a Necris soldier drops a mortally wounded Jester in the floor. Cue Reaper swearing revenge against Malcolm.
  • That One Level: In the campaign, Torlan Delta, with the Leviathan and the two Darkwalkers, against the Krall.
    • Also, the final battle against Akasha in the higher levels.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The general reaction towards this game, going farther as splitting the mod community, with model/skin makers annoyed at Epic's screwing around with custom skeletons. Someone parodied it with a complaint generator.
