Second Life vs. Unreal (for KSS student projects…)

January 19th, 2009

Unreal PROS

Unreal CONS

Fully controlled world

Result is a “professional” playable game that can run on consoles

Good experience for those wanting a future in the gaming.

Programming required

Construction interface is complex

Second Life PROS

Second Life CONS

Character creation is simple and customizable

Cinematic control

Building sets is easier.

World is open

Difficult to control where players go or with whom they’ll interact

Linden$$ needed usually to either buy props/sets or import textures for original items

Slow connection with server causes annoying lag.
