* CriticalBacklash: Sure, it isn't ''Unreal Tournament'' or ''Unreal Tournament 2004'', but ''Unreal Tournament III'' has received a lot of unfair [[{{Misblamed}} misblaming]] for what it '''isn't''' rather for what it is.
* EpilepticTrees: 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.

** The Shock Rifle combo and the Sniper Rifle.
** The [[TripodTerror Darkwalker]] in [=DM-HeatRay=].
** The turret in the map DM-Deimos.
* GameplayDerailment: 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...)
* HarsherInHindsight:
** One of the Bonus Pack 2 maps from ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004'', [=AS-BP2-Jumpship=], retells a story about a squad of Izanagi soldiers infiltrating Liandri space and hijack a jumpship in order to be able to make space jumps without the need of a gate. Fast forward to this game, and [[spoiler:another Izanagi team, the Ronin, hijacks a ship in order to jump to Necris space]].
** [[spoiler:Akasha]]'s first line in the final match. Until the free reboot, the series wouldn't see another installment for a long time.

* {{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 ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', which led to impressions that the series was yesterday's news.
* PlayerPunch: [[spoiler: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.]]
* ThatOneLevel: In the campaign, Torlan Delta, with the Leviathan and the two Darkwalkers, against the Krall.
** Also, the final battle against [[spoiler:Akasha]] in the higher levels.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: 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 [[http://www.ut2341.com/UT2007_Complaints/ complaint generator]].
