Linux games - First Person Shooters - Part Deux

Filed under
Gaming

It's time for some more fast-paced action!

In the last article, we have reviewed three excellent First Person Shooters (FPS) - OpenArena, Sauerbraten and Nexuiz - which offer you a good mix of solid graphics, fast-paced action and cross-platform compatibility, while being simple to use and configure, free, stable, and low on hardware demands.

Today, we'll talk about games where you play as a human - against other humans. Our two candidates are AssaultCube and Urban Terror.

AssaultCube

AssaultCube is one of the smallest, yet good-looking FPS games available. It packs neatly into 19MB of funs and realism, based on the Cube engine. While it may appear somewhat spartan and archaic compared to multi-GB behemoths out there, it is a reasonable choice for people with weak machines or slow Internet.
