    The only thing that is consolish about the game is the crappy menu system.

    For the console versions they very easily could have just lowered the detail on the maps to preserve file sizes so things would fit into memory. A few more polys here, a few less objects there, etc.

    I think the smaller level sizes was probably just a stupid design decision or because they rushed the game out the door (which seems more likely).

    In short: The console versions are ports of a PC game, not the other way around.
    hmm..... then again, YOU may be right.

    ah well, stuff pointing fingers. im going to play the demo, and open up Ventrilo into the UT3F channel.

      Woah, somebody's buttons are easy to press. Maybe I should've put a little smiley face in my post.


        Sadly like everything else in this world. It's all about money. Plain and simple.
