Based on the Cube 2: Sauerbraten engine, this is definitely the best Mod ever created for it.
- 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
- Rifle is relatively underpowered and hard to use compared to other weapons
- 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.
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.
