Urban Terror™ is a free multiplayer first person shooter, that (thanks to ioquake3) does not require Quake III Arena. It is available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh. The current version is 4.1.
Urban Terror can be described as a Hollywood tactical shooter; somewhat realism based, but the motto is "fun over realism". This results in a very unique, enjoyable and addictive game.

I was bored the other day so i decided to download an online FPS (first person shooter) that i had heard about but never played, that game was Urban Terror and boy i'm glad that i found about it. Basically Urban Terror is a fully online FPS that is a little bit more realistic that most shooters, for example you need to manually reload your weapons, be careful of not jumping from great heights, bandage your injured limbs among other stuff. Thankfully ultra realism is not what Urban Terror is all about since the game also lets you do double jumps, sweeps, etc. adding lots of fun when playing online. The only fault that Urban Terror has in my opinion is that unless you have Quake III you can't use the anti-cheat technology Punkbuster, this could potentially lead to jerks using cheats online but i have to say that my experiences playing the game have been pretty smooth. In conclusion if you would like to fight boredom blasting random strangers online then Urban Terror is a pretty good choice. Available for Windows, Linux and MacOSX.
