Nexuiz Editor's Review

Nexuiz is an Open Source (GPL) First Person Shooter game.

The game is based on a modified Quake engine. It's available for various platforms since it has a great portability. The distribution package includes the executable code for all the platforms, including here the dedicated servers.

Nexuiz aims at a multi-player gaming target population, but it also offers a single player mode where you can play against some bots on several maps. The game itself tends to bring back the Quake spirit, along with the used futuristic weapons and maps.

Even though it looks a little old, Nexuiz is quite good for a Open Source game. It features some special effects, part of the OpenGL 2.0 specifications, which can give your Mac headaches if the video card is not relatively new. Anyway, the effects can be turned off, so the game runs quite smooth on older machines too.

Since I can't describe in words the how the game play is, I invite you to personally test this stuff. All I can say is the fact that while testing the game, it kept me pretty attached.

Pluses: free, captivating, cross-platform, and the fact that it brings back some of the Quake spirit.

Drawbacks / flaws: old looks, sometimes it has high loading times.

In conclusion: a pretty good piece of software for an Open Source game actually. If you can get used to the old look, then it could be a nice way of spending the spare time.

version reviewed: 2.3
