About This Game

Powered by CryENGINE 3, Nexuiz reinvents Arena FPS gameplay.

For centuries the Kavussari and the Forsellians have waged war. They have a fragile truce but due to their seething disgust of each other they still pit their warriors against each other in arenas rather than on the fields of war.

Those episodes of lethal combat are now broadcast throughout the galaxy, as entertainment… a spectacle known as… The Nexuiz Competition: An arena based first person shooter where you can alter the rules of the match and laws of physics while you dominate opponents in ever-changing hostile environments bleeding with hatred.

Key Features

  • Over 100 ‘Dynamic Mutators’ serve as game-changing power-ups – Jetpacks, Uber-Nuke, Low Gravity, Big Head Mode and many more...
  • 9 deadly arenas – powered by CryENGINE 3, Nexuiz sets a new graphical benchmark for a digital-only release
  • Designed for competitive play - a superbly balanced weapon set, classic game modes, and extensive stat tracking, Medals and Leaderboard support
  • Play solo or online – hone your skills against bots, then wage war online against the best in up to 32 player matches

Amazing game, really faced fast arena shooter in similar vein of unreal/quake with sci-fi setting and varied levels. The game looks good and the audio is crisp and clean, the mutators are a integral part of the game and makes the game so much fun, you chose from 3 different random options and there are plenty of those to keep it random and fun at the same time.

This game was relaunched after a long time due to the old publishers (THQ) shutting down the servers as they went bankript which is a shame, the problem still with the game is that it still has optimization issues and the biggest problem of populated servers, the game literally has 8-10 people playing at during its peak while has even zero during down time which is a real shame coz this is one of those highly underrated titles that i am sure many people would love to play as we dont have many mp games in the similar genre these days.

If you love fast paced first person shooters then look no further!

This game has been released once more and I am happy it can finally be played by people who may have missed it the first time round. It plays a lot like UT and Quake but has its own unique style and it looks beautiful when maxed out, the way Cryengine 3 is meant to be used.

Hopefully the online community comes back to this as it desperatley misses it. I also highly recommend Duel Mode with a friend, 1v1, Instagib with the Nex; prepare for one frantic butt clenching game!

Welcome back Nexuiz!

A fantastic arena style FPS - a variety of levels, weapons, low gravity modes - really resembles the new Doom (2016). Can use Directx9 or Directx11, and the levels are graphically superior to most first person shooters. It's frantic and fast so be prepaired to think on your toes. There are hardly no hiding spots in these levels. Highly suggested and cheap.

Final Impressions:

The Medal Master achivement appears, presently, to be unachiveable, as no medals seem to be produced from bot matches and there are insufficient players for proper pvp/quick matches.
The issue with speed vs. fire rate for several weapons still seems to apply (not a lag issue) and this is unfortunate and makes, at least for me, a handful of the weapons totally useless.

I would recommend this game if it were picked up in a bundle and/or certainly if it becomes free. As a standalone purchase however, this game has an insufficient player base to justify the expense.

I suggest to the developers:

1. Hold some Nexuiz events to better market this older title

2. Decrease the stand-alone price and/or add in some additional DLC (between your more active projects) to increase it's cost vs. benefit rating

3. Actively seek to include the title in other bundles to increase availability and perhaps expand the player base (I acquired the game via the Cryengine dev pack on Humble bundle for example).

I am changing the rating on this review to a positive one--as I do find myself playing the game and that, unto itself, speaks volumes.

Third impressions:

Nexuiz is slowly growing on me. No real online multi-player (lack of population). Still having issues with aiming--given run/jump speeds etc. I have yet to receive any medals--so I believe this remains glitched and may have to be worked around for the achivement to trigger for pokemon purposes. Fun for short bursts, but still can't recommend it as an individual purchase at this time.

Second impressions:

CTF is definately the best match type so far--such has remained enjoyable.

Hitbox/accuracy remains an issue--the raw/base movement of characters still seems to surpass actual projectile speed (does not seem to be a lag/graphic setting issue, but more play is needed).

Mutators are enjoyable and afford an excellent, and in a couple instances--funny, variation to some of the other arena games I have played.

Tried some online quick matches. Player population remains very limited. One game was fine (albeit a loss) the other has me questioning how prevalent hacking is amonst the minute player base (1-2 shot kills 8 times in a row within 10s of respawning, and whilst on the run, seems a tad high--but then I am new to this product. However, such was not noticed in any bot matches or my other online/pvp matches to date).

First impressions:

Acquired via the Cryengine Humble Bundle.

Maps are generally well designed. CTF is fun, however, DM is, unfortunately, quite bland.

Both CTF and DM suffer, from what is intended to be a feature, by the ADHD style of movement within Nexuiz. Yes it is fast paced, but so much so that it is more about "spray and pray" than actual aiming/accuracy.

The frequency of powerups/drops et al. is also very high on the maps I've explored to date. This makes resource conservation of little value, thus far, and further supports the "spray and pray" style.

If you want arena combat, akin to Speedy gonzales running around with a rocket launcher, then Nexuiz fits the bill.

I remain hopeful I'll see some value, beyond achievement collecting, in Nexuiz and I will update this review accordingly as additional play time is logged.
