Urban Terror

Urban Terror started as a realism based "total conversion" mod for Quake III Arena. Nowadays, Urban Terror is played using the free, stand-alone, ioquake3 engine modified, which doesn't require Quake III Arena, in addition to being an add-on to id Software's Quake III Arena.

Minimum system requirements: 

CPU: 1.2 GHz (x86 compatible)
RAM: 256 MB
GPU: OpenGL-compatible with 128 MB VRAM
HDD: ~5.0 GB

Best Shooter

This is the best shooter on Linux that I have ever met!

Deserves higher rating

This game deserves a higher rating that 7.9, especially compared to some of the other games that have higher ratings.

8 of 10

This is a great shooter with interesting combat mechanics that you don't see too often. Things like bleeding for example add a aspect of tention to the game. It plays well, the gun play is good and you have a nice selection of stock weapons to choose from. Sometimes you need the right gun for the right job which can be a bit of an issue if you are not playing with friends and running together. Its a great game and worth trying. I don't understand why the game is so large in context to it its overall files size, but it's that big of a issue. Worth a try, will recommend it. Can't wait for the HD version.

Urban Terror is going down

Hello, i just visited the Urban Terror website and i found this message: Shutdown Pending: Team FS have decided to suspend all operations until further notice.
To bad that this happens, i can only hope that Frozen Sand allow other contributors to continue working at the game if they wont do it anymore.

I wanted to suggest http://www.lgdb.org/game/assaultcube but their website is currently unreachable so i'm not sure about the game status ether. I just added http://www.lgdb.org/game/assaultcube_reloaded and it is an alternative and installation easy. If you feel a break from deathmatch is in order i would recommend http://www.lgdb.org/game/americas_army_25 its objective oriented gameplay is engaging and unique. And there are always full servers.
