    Maybe the UT3 codebase is TOO BUGGY itself, so took more time to porting.

      Exactly, that's why i'm not buying it. There is a reason if it didn't have success with the Windows release. If it will have success with Linux, it's only because Linux users don't have anything better to play at.

        Actually, one reason to get the game on Linux is so that we could develop mods using the engine.

        The game itself can suck, but the engine is still very much impressive.

          ...Pretty graphics!

          But wait, that's what Unigine is for.

              I look forward to UT3 just for having another Linux graphics benchmark (and to push it into PTS).

                Unigine is great, but it's not yet something we can call "playable" or even "moddable".

                The tropics demo is a great way of getting the Crytek guys to port Crysis to Linux ("Hey! We can do DX10 too! Without the DX!"), but it's still not a game.

                  True, but a Unigine game will probably be ready for linux well before the damned UT3 linux port is released. Heck, we'll probably see UT4 on linux before UT3.

                    Hopefully, the Unigine game project will be something that helps game developers wake up and smell the Linux.

                    I've bought the Penny Arcade game, and still hope to see more games released for Linux, but a game with a tremendous graphical quality and good playability on Linux could help getting others to make games with cross compatibility in mind.

                      Why would you even say something like this? From a gameplay standpoint it's much better than 2004. The pace and weapon mechanics are superior in just about every way and even the vehicles are pretty interesting. Even better, a decent number of the maps it comes with are actually good. So as someone who cares deeply about games, I simply must ask: What about UT3 would you call "amateur?"

                      Note that the poor Linux handling is not game mechanics. Neither is poor sales.
