Red Eclipse is a fun-filled new take on the casual first person arena shooter, built as a total conversion of Cube Engine 2, which lends itself toward a balanced gameplay, with a general theme of agility in a variety of environments. It features: Parkour, impulse boosts, dashing, and other tricks. Favourite game modes with an array of mutators and variables. A built-in editor lets you create your own maps cooperatively online. The project is a Free and Open Source game, built on Cube Engine 2 using SDL and OpenGL which allows it to be ported to many platforms; you can download a package for Windows, GNU/Linux, BSD, and OSX, or grab a development copy from our Subversion repository and live on the bleeding edge. In a true open source by the people for the people nature, we try to work closely with the gaming and open source communities to provide a better overall experience, aiming to create a game environment that is fun and easy to play, while still having elements to master.

Fun. Blade, flamer, grenade, rifle all collective weapons hmm. Graphics smoother than Blood Frontier.

Recommend to all Sauerbraten players and any FPSers with bad network.

Red Eclipse is a futuristic FPS game which focuses on agile gameplay.
Unlike in other FPSes were you constantly need to search for health, armor or ammo items;

to-the-point type of gameplay, were you concentrate on what matters: FRAGGING!

You can carry up to a max of 3 weapons from a total of 9 unique available weapons:
- Melee (ground punches & aerial kicks).
- Sword,
- Pistol,
- Shotgun,
- SMG,
- Flamer,

All weapons (except the Rocket & Grenades) have unlimited ammo.

The gameplay brings us some innovative and unique moves such as:
- Impulse dash,
- Wall run,
- Wall kick,
- Power jump and
- Power slide moves.

With a wide range of game modes to choose from:
- Campaign,

All this points put together give this game a Highly Balanced Gameplay.

Based on the Cube 2: Sauerbraten engine, this is definitely the best Mod ever created for it.

The Good:
- Fun
- Easy to learn and start with
- Cool parkour-style movement
- Big amount of mutators to fine-tune the match just how you want it
- Co-op edit mode allows you to create a map together with other players on the server or run around and fight on a map that other players are working on that very moment

The Bad:
- Rifle is relatively underpowered and hard to use compared to other weapons

The Meh:
- Server browsing allows you to see how much percent of the server variables are modified, but not which. You can have a guess at what has been changed, but you can't be sure until you join the server.

Final rating:
9/10 - A few things can be improved but the game is near-perfect.

I'm not that big of a FPS gamer but this game is actually quite fun to play with that satisfying ping when you hit your target and instagib for the win :D

A single player campaign or story would seriously do this game justice.

now we just got to fill the servers :P

I love this game; it's always fun to play. The weapon balance is good, the maps are really creative, and the mutators give the game virtually endless possibilities. The unlimited ammo and health regeneration is a great move; it's a lot more fun this way.

One of my favourite things about this game is the parkour, where you can run across a wall or kick off it to reach higher places. This is no gimmick, either: I find it to be invaluable in a number of situations.

Great game; 10/10

Red Eclipse. Fun. Red Eclipse. Fun. They just go together. Red Eclipse is Cube Engine 2 perfected. The graphics are brilliant, and can run at a fairly high FPS even on a crappy computer or laptop (such as mine). gameplay-wise, it's twitch perfected. nailing that perfect headshot has never been harder thanks to the chainshot which is both useful for a quick escape and makes it hard to get a bead on the enemy. The maps and gamemodes are very varied,with mutators available to keep gameplay fresh and new just when you got bored. all in all Red Eclipse is a game very much worth downloading. It's completely free and plays a better multiplayer round than some of the big guns (CoD, Team Fortress 2, Quake Online), meaning it's got great value for money.
