Nexuiz2.5.2

22 March 2011

3D deathmatch game.

Overview

Nexuiz has been in development for close to five years by a team of amateur developers led by Lee Vermeulen. It is a 3D deathmatch game made entirely over the internet. The purpose of the game is to bring deathmatch back to the basics, with perfect weapon balancing and fast paced action, keeping itself away from the current trend of realistic shooters. It uses HFX textures by Evil Lair, and currently has 17 maps in which to frag. With an advanced UI, the user can select between 15 different player models to use, with an average of two skins for each, and can connect to our master server to play people from all over the world.

The game's content and source are GPL, meaning that it is entirely free and any of it can be used in other free projects, even if modified. This is a first for any large game project of its type. We hope this will support the free game community, and encourage more GPL projects.

I was hesitant to download this as it's based on a modified Quake 1 engine and I find even Quake 3's graphics clunky and dated. I'm also more of an Unreal Tournament fan. But holy flurking schnidt, this is one HIGHLY modified Quake engine, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nexuiz for info. I find the unrelenting fast-paced gameplay reminiscent of the original Unreal Tournament or even UT2004, with better graphics than OpenArena/Quake 3, really nice music and sound effects (weapons and announcers), and lots of levels and add-ons. This one gives Sauerbraten a run for its (lack of) money at least in terms of fun traditional FPS gameplay. And it runs WAY faster, though the less advanced engine than SB or, say, UT2004/UT3 means less eye candy. You won't miss it. Five stars, since it's free and open-source. If it were paid, I might give only four.

This is a great multiplayer game. Even if you don't have internet to explore some of it's online multiplayer capabilities, there are still bots to shoot at. Another great thing about this game that a lot of other first person shooters don't have is the ability to accept other maps that didn't come with Nexuiz, especially the ability to download maps off of a dedicated server. Again, this is a very good first-person shooter game.

Very fun game, runs great on my 3 year old iMac 1.83Ghz Core Duo. However, playing regularly for 2 months last summer gave me RSI because of the extremely fast and unrelenting gameplay. So take it easy...

This game is the medicine. I'm speechless right now. Just came out from a 3 hour non-stop ultra hardcore games. And I just want more. At first, I thought there were some things in Nexuiz, that didn't behave exactly as you're used to. First and foremost, the player movements have a slight accelleration/descelleration added to it. Which makes it feel a little funny in the beginning. But after a while, you're perfectly ok with it (I mean, perfectly ok with it). Now on to some details. The sound effects are great. But, the music - although not every track - is, at times, super rad! Ingeniously crafted into this game, the music literally pumps out your adrenaline. It's that great. I must frankly say, that I really can't collect my optimistic thoughts about this game and express it in words. But to all fps fanatics out there: This is the game. No unnecessary story plots, realistic yada yada; just pure battle, right from the start.

This game is extremely similar to Quake III: Arena, and the good thing is that its free! While its not the best quality, its gameplay is very fun and addictive especially on boring days. Download it if you're bored!!
