A really fine and polished piece of work, after download.installation the game opens up into a very slick menu system that is so intuitive you can start messing with it immediately. After your server is selected its right into the action. Again, you know what to expect from a deathmatch FPS. In the case of Nexuiz, its fast, smooth and pleasant to look at. The game flew on my test system, which is quite an achievement as it looks like a CPU demanding game and the test PC is over 2 years old.
I had only one problem with Nexuiz and that was the (now common) resolution change of my desktop when I quit out of the game. An easy problem to fix, a quick ctrl-alt and backspace (thanks Assasin for that tip.). I actually believe this this is a problem with my setup and not an issue with the game itself.
Well done to all those involved in the project, and any players who find themselves enjoying this game (as Im sure you will) please consider donating, these people have put alot of effort into this game purely to entertain you.
This game was tested on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron.
80% – A slightly higher score than Alien Arena, purely because on top of being a great game, it worked 100% out of the box for me.
