Product Description

From the Manufacturer

For centuries the Kavussari and the Forsellians have waged war. They have a fragile truce but due to their seething disgust of each other they still pit their warriors against each other in arenas rather than on the fields of war.

Those episodes of lethal combat are now broadcast throughout the galaxy, as entertainment… a spectacle known as… The Nexuiz Competition: An arena based first person shooter where you can alter the rules of the match and laws of physics while you dominate opponents in ever-changing hostile environments bleeding with hatred.

Key Features:

  • Arena FPS is back – inspired by the giants of the Arena FPS genre, Nexuiz reinvents twitch gaming for next generation consoles and PC
  • Over 100 ‘Dynamic Mutators’ serve as game-changing power-ups – Jetpacks, Uber-Nuke, Low Gravity, Big Head Mode and many more...
  • 9 deadly arenas – powered by CryENGINE 3, Nexuiz sets a new graphical benchmark for a digital-only release
  • Designed for competitive play - a superbly balanced weapon set, classic game modes, and extensive stat tracking, Medals and Leaderboard support
  • Play solo or online – hone your skills against bots, then wage war online against the best in 4v4 multiplayer matches

3.0 out of 5 stars Stick with Unreal Tournament 2004 December 24, 2012
While the game is good and feels like a throwback to the days of Quake and Unreal, the online multiplayer is empty. You're much better off playing Unreal Tournament 2004 because it's a lot better and still have a ton of people playing online.

Why play a throwback to an old genre, when the classics are still alive and kicking.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it! July 27, 2012
Nexuiz 2.5 is still free online, but this is a whole new ballgame! I'm a fan of twitch shooters like Unreal Tournament, so this is a natural fit for me. The only downside is there are only 9 maps at the moment and no map editor. If the dev team could double the maps or at least provide a robust editor, it would be a knockout title. For what it is, though, it's amazing. I love the look of the Crytek 3 engine moving at breakneck speed. The 100 dynamic mods are really a fun addition to this genre. Being able to choose between 3 random mods on the fly (3 for each time you pick up the mod icon) really enhances the already frenetic gameplay. I really hope to see this on PSN soon as was the plan, but for now, I'm happy with it on PC. Great job devs! You really should hype this up and add more content.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cant believe they have the balls! May 21, 2013
This game is completely dead and THQ is still selling it! There are absolutely no servers online. They were all removed. I bought this game for only 2 bucks, but they are selling it for $10 now. DO NOT BUY IT

3.0 out of 5 stars Great single player, but... September 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
The game is GREAT, the graphics are insanely good, you'll need a pretty good computer to run it. Be sure to turn down shaders, shadows, and lighting to low or medium because this impacts fps a LOT. Although the bot practice(single player) is really fun, I was really looking forward to playing multiplayer. The bad thing is that the game is EMPTY, in the morning there was only one game server with actual people playing in it. There was only 3 people. At 3pm, there is exactly 0 people in multiplayer. I don't see why this game's multiplayer is so empty, this game is cheap, fun, and great graphics. The game is great but I give 3 stars because basically, there is no multiplayer because there's nobody to play with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Play Quake instead October 24, 2013
Verified Purchase
Game's dead. Great game, but dead. Quake live is a far better alternative in terms of actual gameplay. There is no competitive play for this game.

The only bad part of this game is there is never anyone online to play with, it makes it really hard to actually get into the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Medeocre shooter February 13, 2013
By Jeff
Verified Purchase
Looks pretty.
On sale for 99c, planned on purchasing it for everyone around Christmas at that price for some cheap fun. Not actually enjoyable enough to bother.
The game runs fine on my laptop with HD6970M even in "stupid" mode that was intended for benchmarking.
This game wasn't unique enough to gather the community to thrive like Unreal Tournament. I believe more servers are actually still running for the original Unreal Tournament than this game. In the brief test I made I was utterly underwhelmed by the feel of the weapons.

That said, 1v1 versus DLC was made free; but don't expect further content as THQ is no more. Includes bots for solo play.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty game! Too bad nobody is playing it. January 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
So Nexuiz could be a pretty good experience if you like arena shooters. It is fast paced, has great weapons, looks great, and has some pretty awesome modifiers (hacks) built into the game. Good luck finding a game though. I didn't spend much time playing it, because it is so fast (or because I am so terrible) I feel like it would probably take me a few hours to get the hang of the gameplay. Well last time I played it, there were only a handful of servers with actual people on them, and they were good, really good, to the point where it isn't fun for a stupid noob like myself to even play. Which is a shame.
So buy the game ONLY if you have some buddies to play with. Maybe if it goes on sale again, buy a bunch of copies for your friends and rent a server for a weekend or something, just don't expect a community to be built into the game.
