I didn't understand the logic behind using Unreal Engine 3. MT Framework used in previous game was visually stunning.

Hahah, throws the gun at it. I like it already. Hopefully it will return some of the love I had for the original game's story. LP2 had me interested till I saw the reviews. I'd only buy it on a sub $10 steam sale if it ever got that low.

It's probably easier to code on the UE3 engine. Along with there's probably a lot more people that understand the UE3 engine over the other. There for Less cost to produce.
