    dkirschner's Nexuiz (PC)

    [December 2, 2012 08:08:24 AM]
    Hopped in Nexuiz to check it out. I know it's based on an old Quake mod, which means hyperfast space shooter. That part is right on. It seems pretty obviously unfinished though. I don't know why it was released on Steam already and included in this THQ pack I bought. There was one game online with 32/32 people, no idea who, then maybe 6 or 7 with 0/32, and that's all the games. Since no one was playing, which isn't a good sign, I did bot practice.

    The bots, on easy, zigzag like maniacs and are hard enough to hit. I got a few frags, and they killed me a few times. The game looks alright. The sky is blindingly bright for some reason. The environmental draw distance is way too near. I had it on medium and it was drawing things real close to me, which always made it look like enemies were moving where there was no one there. Phantoms! The guns were completely stock, nothing special. Yeah, it's just a super basic fast Quake-style multiplayer FPS. The dude who makes it really needs to polish some and add more to it! I only saw that it has deathmatch and capture the flag. I saw only a handful of guns, and the level I was on didn't have much going on.

    Also one time my character just started jumping. Just like he'd eaten a pixie stick or something and was hopped up on sugar. Jump jump jump. He wouldn't stop, and I finally had to restart so he'd quit jumping. That was weird.

    But the music is really good.

    So, deleting! Maybe this'll be more playable in the future, but I'll stick with the whole bunch of better FPSes out there. Speaking of, Unreal Tournament is super cheap on Steam this weekend.
