Short #Rexuiz Review

#Rexuiz is a first person shooter built in the spirit of old multiplayer games, like Quake and Unreal Tournament franchises. It retains the same feeling and great atmosphere that made these type of games really successful about 6 to 10 years ago, and, while #Rexuiz may not fare too well these days, it’s still great fun.

Installation

The game is multiplatform so it runs under Linux, Mac  OS and Windows. It can be found as a zip package on the sidebar links. It works out of the box and anyone can play it immediately.

Like all older multiplayer games, #Rexuiz comes with dedicated servers, but they need some tweaking in order to get them to work properly. On the other hand, starting a dedicated server shouldn’t be too difficult, if you know what you’re doing.

Gameplay

#Rexuiz is build on an old multplayer recipe that has been proven and tested in many games, from Quake 3 to Unreal Tournament III. In many respects, #Rexuiz is quite similar to Unreal Tournament 2004, with little structural differences, but an entirely different atmosphere and gameplay speed. We can even say that #Rexuiz is a lot tougher to beat in single player mode and even harder to master when it comes to raw multiplayer.

If users don’t want to jump right in the multiplayer section of the game, they can start with the single player campaign to get a feel for the speed of the gameplay, as #Rexuiz will require gamers to be on their toes.

The Single Player mode is a bit of an overstatement. There’s just a succession of missions, played against bots controlled by the computer, in more and more complicated environments. The users will end up passing through all the default levels, making them familiar with what’s to come in the real challenge.

The multiplayer part of the game is where the strength of #Rexuiz lies. Users can opt to just start a quick game, choosing from a very large list of servers. There are always tons of games organized in all parts of the world, so finding a match with a small ping (latency) should be really easy.

On the other hand, gamers can also choose to create a game and there are a lot of modes to choose from. We’re going to list them, as they are the biggest feature of this title:

- Deathmatch: This is a classic mode which has a simple logic: everyone for himself. The first one to reach the required number of frags (kills) wins;

- Last Man Standing: Everyone starts with a certain amount of lives and the survivor wins the game;

- Freeze tag: Kill all enemies to turn them into iceblocks, stay near teammates to unfreeze`me;

- Runematch: Users can pick up and hold the runes, which are special items that provide points, a special power, and a disadvantage (curse);

- Race: Gamers have to be faster than other opponents, crossing a series of checkpoints up to a finish line;

- TDM: Acronym for Team Deadmatch. Practically the same as deathmatch, but with teams. There are no other requirements to win the match;

- CTF: Capture de Flag is a well known gameplay mode. Take the enemy flag and bring it to your own, in order to score;

- Domination: Capture and hold control points to win;

- Key Hunt: This is an unique mode. Players have to collect all the keys from the enemies and bring them together to score;

- Nexball: Basketball, Soccer and Hockey,  with crazy tuning now!

All these modes make sure that #Rexuiz will provide everyone with something. It’s virtually impossible to ask for more in a multiplayer oriented game. These features, combined with the sleuth of parameters that can be set before starting a new game, make #Rexuiz an almost complete game (I say complete as I’m sure someone, somewhere, will want a feature that isn’t implemented).

Graphics and sound

Graphically speaking, #Rexuiz is not all that great looking, if we compare it with modern multiplayer games and even with older ones, like Unreal Tournament 2004. It still has a certain look that makes it stand up from the crowd and the engine is capable of offering some perks like particle effects and bloom.

There is a big upside to the lack of advanced graphics. #Rexuiz may look old, but it will run on older machines. This means that rigs assembeld 5-6 years ago will be able to run the game and do it so in an honorable fashion.

Regarding the music and sound effects, #Rexuiz only stands out in one single deparment. None of them are worth mentioning. Everything is well balanced and does the job well, but there is nothing notable. The weapons sound like they are supposed to and the music is forgettable immediately once the player pushes the quit button.

Conclusion

#Rexuiz is a remnant of an era when multiplayers shooters were the pinnacle of evolution in social gaming. After Unreal Tournament III, there was nothing. Producers of #Rexuiz pushed on with an old title and now this game is one of the last FREE multiplayer titans. It may not be a pretty game, but it’s definitely a lot of fun and, in the end, that’s all that matters.
