Warsow



Yet another open source first-person shooter from the Ubuntu repositories, Warsow distinguishes itself because of its cel-shading presentation and because of its fast loading times. Of the three shooters I've tried under Ubuntu, Warsow came up the fastest. Its cartoonish presentation also marks a refreshing change from the typically dark and grimy environs we've come to expect from games like this.

Warsow's emphasis, like Nexuiz, is on multiplayer.

I think it's worth mentioning that most of these games won't run correctly without drivers. In my experience, ATI's Linux support is a painful, masochistic experience. Nvidia is actually mildly pleasant to work with, and from the looks of things it may be about to get better:

Thanks, Irish; I plan to cover the video card drivers in some future posts.
