Nexuiz is the Prettiest Shooter You’ve Never Heard of

Kotaku: "Ever since the first standalone version of the game was released in 2005, its creators have been continually updating the title, a process which will reach new heights this summer when it goes from being a niche free-to-play PC game to a more polished title (licensed out to developers Illfonic and built using CryEngine 3) available on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and Steam.

Before this new retail version is released and its corridors fill with blood and corpses, then, let's take a look at some of Nexuiz's environments now, while they're still so pretty."

The story is too old to be commented.

Ok ok does look pretty.

Oh by the way Quake says Hi!

(view the game play video and you will see why)

The design looks good but the overall graphics are pretty average. Never heard of this game. Not surprised though as it's easy for a shooter to get lost in the sea of it's own genre. Will research.

Looks good in the pictures but from all the gameplay I've seen it's pretty bland.

Nexuiz is an outgrowth of Nexius which began as a Quake Mod. So of course it reminds you of Quake.

I still can't understand for the life of my why the official pronunciation of this title is "Nex-ee-us." It's spelled "Nex-oo-eez," and why in the universe would someone name something Nex-oo-eez? Maybe they should pronounce it "Nex-whiz?" Maybe it's an international thing.

I used to play that and tremulous all the time, with the latter being crazy.
