Unreal Tournament 3

Classic first-person shooters have become rare these days. While it is thisA few years ago there was still a lot of it, 'pure-bred shooting fun' has meanwhile gone out of fashion. Nevertheless, there are a few games that ignore this with great success and rely on the old concept of success. One of these series is called 'Unreal Tournament', which is programmed by Epic, one of the most famous game manufacturers. The latest offspring is called Unreal Tournament 3, which, in contrast to its two predecessors, is more reminiscent of the original Unreal Tournament. The Unreal Engine 3 is used as the technical framework, which is already technically pleasing in several other games. This is no different in Unreal Tournament 3: Chic and varied textures, good particle effects, useful (if sometimes a bit exaggerated) shading, high dynamic range rendering and much more make 'UT3' one of the most beautiful games the market. Support for the Direct3D 10 API has not yet been implemented (although Unreal Engine 3 is quite capable of doing this). Since the Unreal Engine 3 uses deferred shading, no anti-aliasing works, which is why most graphics cards cannot use anti-aliasing. Since the Direct3D 10 hardware is able to do this, Nvidia has used a little trick in the driver for the corresponding graphics cards that makes anti-aliasing possible. We make use of this and test the GeForce 8 cards with anti-aliasing activated. We use the integrated flyby function of card xxx as a benchmark sequence. This generates very high FPS values, which in real game action are never even close. Therefore, one can only partially deduce the game from our benchmarks.
