Warsow (http://www.warsow.net) is indeed very cool too, incredibly fast and since it allows all kinds of trick jumps perhaps more interesting than AA for the hard-core death-matcher. Graphics are indeed very nice, the cell-shading effect gives a nice touch to it without being too heavy on resources.



Nexuiz (http://www.alientrap.org/nexuiz/) is a shooter just like AA, very similar theme and playability and very nice graphics too, including HDR effects and such. I have to admit I personally like AA a bit better (especially the new version, it _is_ nice!), but think that it's really just a matter of taste though.



World of Padman (http://www.worldofpadman.com) is a cartoon-themed death-matcher that used to be a Quake 3 mod. Even though game play is not very special, the funny characters and beautiful levels make it a lot of fun to play.



In other words: there _is_ indeed other competition besides Tremulous, and I'm not even sure AA blows all of them out of the water, it's a matter of taste I guess... It _is_ good to see the game develop as much as it does, though, and even though Warsow will still be my personal favourite, I had a lot of fun playing the new AA yesterday...
