Urban Terror second review - Fun over realism

Filed under
Gaming

Fun over realism is the official game motto, which reminds me, it's been three years since I last wrote about this first person shooter title. As one of the most complete and popular free tactical shooters out there, it sure deserves praise and attention. It is well packaged as a product, relatively bug-free, with a simple installation, decent graphics, low requirements, a solid and growing fanbase, and most importantly, a balanced gameplay that offers something to everyone.

At the end of 2010, I included the game as one of the best free games of the year. So you have seen your share. But I will pretend there is no Urban Terror review on Dedoimedo, no awards, nor teasers, and give you a new, fresh article, based on yet another year of shooting for pleasure.

Overall, Year 2016 was a fairly tough one for us Linux users. Whether you like it or not, Ubuntu plays a very big part in how the world of distros turns. The pendulum of fortune sways heavily toward the gravitational pull of what Canonical does, and when Ubuntu mis-delivers, a large number of other distributions suffers for it, both directly as they be based on Ubuntu, and also indirectly, through the erosion of hope and good karma. Still, despite these challenges, we can sift through all the trouble and search for the nuggets of happiness. The desktop environment candidate for this article is Plasma, and to some extent, KDE.
