Myself and my team are in a bit of a tough spot at the moment, we’re trying to choose a game engine and have only managed to narrow it down to two so far. As I’m sure most of you have figured out, it’s Unreal Engine and CryEngine. I have posted this in both forums, to get a general feel from the community and TRUE feedback on both engines.
We know that both engine have pros and cons, most of our team are from AAA backgrounds. We also know that a engine is only as strong as the team who are using it.
The general feel of Unreal seems to be very beginner friendly, with blueprints and things like that. CryEngine, not so much. This is not our concern, as I have stated this isn’t our first rodeo. All the threads and feedback I can find on comparing these two engines are based on UE 4.0, not 4.5.
Please try to put your bias of the engine to a side, and give us honest answers. Where does Unreal Engine/CryEngine fall your opinion? How does it perform in multilayer? How does it perform visually?
