Urban Terror is a free multiplayer first person shooter. Urban Terror can be described as a Hollywood tactical shooter; somewhat realism based, but the motto is “fun over realism”. This results in a very unique, enjoyable and addictive game.

    Game is unique, I find it quicker and more tactical then cs. Visually a bit old but devs upgraded q3 engine and maps got better textures so it does not harm your eyes. Unfortunately player community shrunk a lot during last few years and it is difficult to find good sport nowadays.

      I agree completely.

      First problem was huge amount of cheaters and main developers simply ignoring it; mostly it was thanks to support of windows.
      Then, in order to fight cheaters they decided to rewrite whole with “passport” system, and to do so, they need quake3 license, not ioquake3 engine, that means the game, both client and server is now 100% proprietary.
      And to finish all this, their “HD” version looked ugly and there were virtually no improvements.
      They started to catch up somehow recently with the release of 4.2; but its so late.
      And the bullet collision detection is still very very bad.

      Maybe the game would be good for 2001 year, but not for today.
      A lot of people migrated to Xonotic, btw.

    Almost as cool as America’s Army. More fun, though.

    Can I play it on ubuntu hardy?

    • Ccubedd

       Yes no problem. Download the zip, extract, right click properties “allow execution” then right click open with mono or wine.

        mono or wine? Are you serious? This is native game! No right clicks, doubleclick and done.
