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.

in Red Eclipse you get health regeneration & no armor by defaullt. This fosters a fast and
to-the-point type of gameplay, were you concentrate on what matters: FRAGGING!

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:

All this points put together give this game a Highly Balanced Gameplay.
If _FRAGGING_ is your business, this game won't dissapoint you. Get it!
Based on the Cube 2: Sauerbraten engine, this is definitely the best Mod ever created for it.

Nice game, although it lacks graphics but overall good

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

Really awesome, free and open source. No bugs or flaws that I have found... Good job, Red Eclipse Team! Perfect game... just wish there were a lot more players

Played it for a few days and it already entered into one of my favorite arena shooters as of recently. The movement system is smooth, the gameplay is fast paced, the community is good, albeit small for now, and I've encountered virtually no bugs. And it runs very well on Linux, so that's always a plus.

This game does everything an arena shooter lover would want in a game and it does it right! It has an enormous amount of maps, has awesome and unique game modes (example: gauntlet), and never fails to keep you playing. Plus with wall running, boots, impulse slides and more, whats not to love? 10/10 it deserves such rating!

I have been playing the game for a year now, and have been a highly active player. I use and check out the SVN versions of this game, it's just too much fun to be free. If life wasn't a thing, I would gladly spend 95% of my time on this game (5% is for eating, because I like eating, OK?).

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.

Un de mes jeux favoris sous GNU/Linux, libre et gratuit et en plus il es ttr├Ęs bien, pourquoi se priver ?
