"I have tried Nexuiz last year and liked it quite a bit. Well, I liked it so much that I featured it in my first article on Linux games, alongside Sauerbraten and OpenArena.

"The latest version 2.5.1 was released in May this year, bringing in a load of improvements, including much refined graphics effects, more realistic textures, shaders, and whatnot. Having just recently bought a new laptop with a powerful modern card and running an instance of Ubuntu specially dedicated for games on it, I though this was a great idea to show my new rig plus test the game.

"Nexuiz has grown fat in the last year. While version 2.4.2 took only about 400MBs, the new release is almost 700MB, the extra 300MB juiced with lots of eye candy and new maps."
