    How disappointing. I actually bought the PC version on the whim that its fan-base was still going strong and I could hit up some good deathmatching for an hour or two like the old days of UT/2k3/2k4...but NO.

    Where should I start:

    - Better? graphics...Yes, the game is on par with Gears of War but that's the problem. It's too close to Gears of War. Every level is overly-gray and murky looking. Nothing like the old UT maps.

    - Recycled weapons...It's the same damn thing. You'd hope for one or two new weapons.

    - Recycled maps...I swear, I'm playing on some of these 'spacey/futuristic' maps and I see re-used meshes from UT2k4, with nicer textures.

    - Dead community...After applying a filter to show populated servers locked/unlocked, I got back ~35 servers for deathmatch. I'm sorry, but that's extremely disappointing. This was at 8pm EST, mind you...peak hours, here.

    Anyways, I played the demo back when it was released and was let down. I had hoped that since it was a beta, the final release would've shown a significant improvement. I've learned a) my lesson and b) why this game is selling so poorly. AVOID!

    Twitch shooters never did it for me, though the original UT was fun.
