"The best choice for ambitious 3D Games"

Commentaires: I really liked using Unreal and prototyping quick ideas. It's a really flexible engine and really powerful. Even the testing stuff look and run great. I wish there was a more open community that helped each other out or introduced new users to advanced knowledge of the engine that you will only earn with time by using it.

Avantages: Unreal Engine has grown over the years and it's now more friendly to single developers, indy movie produces and indy game studios as well. It has a robust toolset that allows you to create 3D games with one of the best engines for realistic looks, yet you can use models that fit your artistic vision, ex: stylized games. If you want an example of how small studios can make a good unreal game, look for Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and if you want to look for AAA Games that look extremely realistic or movie quality, look at Gears of War 5 or Kingdom Hearts 3. Unreal also has an asset store where you can buy models or tools to help you quickly build or prototype your game and it has a blueprint system that allows you to program your game logic without knowing how to write in C++. The engine also runs in a myriad of platforms including mobile.

Inconvénients: One of the downsides of Unreal is how complex it is when comparing it to Godot or Unity. The community for it, it's very small and a lot of the people who have knowledge on Unreal are tied behind studio contracts and maybe they're not allowed to share or help around in the web much, but when you look at Unity, there's dozens and dozens of websites, youtubers, courses and resources that you could basically build a game with no knowledge, but in Unreal it will take a lot of time and expertise on what you're doing. Also one last thing, you can build 2D games in Unreal, but you're better off using GameMaker or Unity for 2D Games. The community and engine support is just bigger and bettter.

"It's a technical marvel, but know what you're getting into."

Commentaires: Unreal Engine is always interesting to use in game jams for graphical fidelity, though at times Unreal Engine projects can become a mess when working on commercial games. People need to know accurately what they're getting into when building a new game in Unreal, because for some it's overwhelming, for others it's like trying to get a game out of modding a first-person shooter, and then for some it ends up being a good choice for their game. Once your whole team is experienced with it, Unreal Engine can be quite good, depending on which genre of game you're going for.

Avantages: Unreal Engine games are excellently visually impressive, and the cross-platform functionality is very good. Even though it's more technically impressive, it's still more stable than Unity. The updates are frequent and prioritize bug fixes more accurately than Unity, and Unreal's pricing is certainly second-to-none.

Inconvénients: A lot of aspects of the editor are unnecessary to make a good game and end up getting in the way more than anything else. The occasional crashes are always saddening, but it's still more stable than most of Unreal's competition.

"Extraordinary game engine for complex 3D games but pretty bad for small 2D projects"

Commentaires: Unreal Engine 4 is great and we love it because we're indie and we don't really want to have more expenses that we require. It's basically a full program with everything you need for 3D game development.
Their asset store with free and paid assets can save up so much time! And the animation blending tool is amazing, if you can find it cause of the heavy interface that is.
Prototyping can be kinda easily done using the blueprints and it could have no coding involved if one chooses so.

Avantages: Unreal Engine is an industry standard application for creating complex 3D games.
The pricing is great for indies as UE4 takes a rev share only if the product goes above a revenue threshold. As with UE5 that threshold will be 1 mil $ and let's face it, what indie game will make it so far? And then it's supposedly 5%.
UE4 has everything you need for big 3D projects:
* coding close to the machine in C++ so you can go almost as deep as you want
* the software itself can be shippe with the source code so you can alter it
* if you prefer a less code heavy approach you can use their blueprint editor which acts like a flowchart
* great animation tool with easy to use blending
* free forever assets from the UE4 team and as well as from the community monthly (this is really amazing compared to the competition, you can just hoard assets for a whole year and when you decide to get into it you'll have so many free things to choose from already)
* easy networking and they don\t ask that you use any of their services
* a lot of guides and tutorials both from the UE4 team as well as from the community
* a mature community (compared to say Unity which got a lot of their developers through viral youtubers showcasing games made in Unity)
* a lot of paid (and free) assets to choose from

Inconvénients: Unreal Engine being so complex and close to the machine requires a lot of time even for the most basic of actions unless you have a super powerful computer and I think this is the biggest con with the software.
Other cons are the following:
* bugs, as the competition has them too, though it seems to me that UE4 has a bit more
* crashes, it crashes more than Unity at least on my computer which is not too powerful actually
* would have big problems running on laptops compared to the competition (Unity)
* weird interface, not too consistent
* bulky interface, a lot of buttons everywhere and I find myself not using half of them
* big installation size which can become a problem if you keep a few versions up (to open different projects and not have to migrate them)
* very rarely, assets from the store are discovered as being fraudulent
* wonky for 2D, a project like that needs way more work than Unity
* launcher is kinda laggy

"Unreal Engine is amazingly powerful!"

Commentaires: Downloading Unreal Engine 4 has been a life changer. I've always loved games and wanted to create my own. As far back as RPG Maker games (Super Nintendo), I was crafting story-lines and choosing the right sprites to convey my story. Eventually I started learning to code using Adobe Flash's Action Script language and went into GameMaker: Studio briefly before I discovered how easy to use Unreal Engine was. Since then I have had complete control over every aspect of my game creation and it has been glorious. I highly recommend Unreal Engine to anyone who has had the slightest inkling of that game maker itch. If you aren't sure, Download it and mess around, its absolutely free.

Avantages: - Top of the line.
- Free to use until you begin making money, and even then you still make a large percentage.
- Unreal engine's node system makes it easy to accomplish what would take months of learning to write code to do.
- Plethora of easy to follow tutorials on YouTube.
- Your imagination is the limit.
- UI is neatly presented.

Inconvénients: - With everything that you can do in Unreal, it only makes sense that you need a powerful machine to run it properly. Even then, my personal Microsoft Surface 3 (its old I know) can run Unreal on low settings enough to still work on my game.
