Unvanquished is a First-Person Shooter (FPS) video game, based on Aliens versus Humans.
The objective of the game is simple, destroy the enemy base. When we start the game we can choose the team we want to join. If we choose humans, we must destroy Aliens and their base, making use of the available weapons. It seems simple, but the Aliens are very quick and elusive. However, if we choose the Aliens, we must finish with humans, for that we have the advantage of our ability to climb the walls and the speed of movement that we have. To make damage to humans the only thing we have to do is touch him, and if we want to make most damage possible, we must touch him on the head.
The game only has Online mode, where we can select several rooms to join games in progress, or we can create our own game. One of the rooms is reserved to train and learn the use of the controls, and also the dynamics of the game. There are also rooms that are specific to Europe and United States, so if we are located in any of these places, we will be able to choose the closest server to have a gaming experience more fluid. Despite the fact that the game is free, servers tend to be empty, so it is desirable to advise a friend to play a few matches in group.
To overcome the contrary, we must destroy their base. As we move forward in the game and we finish with our enemies, our skills and resources will improve and thus, our advantage over the opponent team. We have to take care of the topology of the maps, to put our troops in a strategic way, and finish with the enemy as soon as possible.
The graphics of Unvanquished are of the same style that the graphics of the game Quake 3, since the game is based on the graphic engine Daemon, which is based on Quake 3 game. Game graphics are not of the latest generation, which allows us to run the game on a computer with a graphics card of the average range. Even so, if we want to take full advantage of game graphics, it is convenient to have a latest generation graphics card.
The game has the option of VoIP to communicate with other game players.
The video game is open source and is free of charge. It is cross-platform, so we will be able to play it on Windows, Linux and Mac.
If we are fans of the the first person shooters video games, this one is a good option to enjoy a fun time with some friends. Despite the fact that there are many commercial games more powerful, this game is a great alternative for those who want to play a FPS Online for free.
