Pros: When we started out in the games industry, there was a time when 90% of your development effort went into the creation of a bespoke "game engine" for whatever game you were making. 10% of the effort went on the unique elements of the game that you were working on.

Unity has been part of a middleware wave that started around 20 years ago (such as Renderware, and many other engines before it) which provide a platform for game creation without positioning itself to being the master of a specific type of genre or game type.

This has opened up the world of game development to hundreds of thousands of people, because now you no longer need the low-level expertise of developing a rendering engine, it's already there, and although it's maybe not as cutting edge as a bespoke engine of the bigger AAA titles, it is more than adequate for 99% of the games development world. Particularly indie studios who need low costing solutions to games development.

Unity is great, it offers cutting edge graphics, amazing physics, animation, scripting and platform compatibility for a very reasonable price (it's free for personal use up until a certain amount of revenue) - it's simply not cost efficient any more to consider developing your own bespoke engine.

And what's more, there's a huge and very helpful community of people out there who have probably faced any problem you encounter during development, a quick google and you have your answer.

Cons: Unity doesn't have many drawbacks, if anything it's maybe *too* easy to use in some cases and causes asset rippers (or "flippers") to be able to make and publish very low effort titles onto platforms such as Steam for a small profit. Sadly there's no real way of preventing this (and it's certainly not Unity's issue)

Unity doesn't have many flaws, it could perhaps offer some better landscaping and world creation tools (a minor point) and it's 2d game creation abilities are definitely improving but not as good as it's 3d development side.

Beyond that, Unity is a wonderful tool for any game developer and is here to stay for a very very long time. It just keeps improving.

Overall: Unity has opened up games development and made it accessible to many more people than ever before, it offers industry leading tools and capabilities with a relatively low cost of entry. The community and support network around Unity is second to none and many great games have been made with the platform.

An incredibly easy to use piece of kit. A truly expansive and versatile engine.

Pros: Where do I start with this incredible software.

Firstly, would be the scripting capability within the engine. It uses C# which is a managed language based on the .NET framework. This underlying framework in conjunction with the Unity API introduces a lot of useful features for keeping your code clean and concise while also being highly performant. This also includes the ability to create custom editor windows within the Unity Editor which can be customised to fit a specific need, streamlining your workflow.

Secondly would be the newly introduced High Definition and Lightweight pipelines. They are preset way of rendering the screen which can either produce high fidelity graphics if you are targeting high end platforms or can be used for a more simplistic look if you are targeting low end mobile phones and tablets. These are highly expandable and can be adapted on a per-project basis to get just the look that you want.

Thirdly would be the massive array of platforms that Unity can export your game to. This includes but is not limited to, PC/Mac/Linux, Android/iOS as well as consoles soon including the Switch among others. This allows you to quickly deploy to different platforms so they can be uploaded to the cloud and downloaded by your players.

Cons: Unfortunately, a piece of kit this large is not without its drawbacks.

One of these being that the dark theme can only be accessed by those holding a Unity Plus subscription. This means that those with slightly poorer eye sight may struggle to read the text throughout the user interface.

Another con would be that currently, the Unity interface does not currently scale in size when used on high resolution monitors. This leads to an incredibly hard to read user interface and can become very straining on the eyes after just a short session. However this is soon to be fixed in an upcoming Unity version.

Overall: It encouraged me to learn a new skill while I was a teen, programming. This is incredible useful and I have been using it since to create applications and even prototypes within the Unity engine.

Pros: It was absolutely easy to prototype. Understanding how it works takes no time if you have programming background and if you don't the documentation and official training videos are designed to guide you through all the process always pushing you to try by yourself. The community is fantastic. Hours of videos detailing specific uses and most common situations you can face in more advanced projects. A very important advantage: the engine can be run on low spec laptops (which is not possible with other engines)! If you have a lot of dead time on the train or your daily transportation, this can be a life saver. Also it helps to lower the specs of your final products, making them more accessible to a wider audience by default. They recently added the node editor for shaders. To give you some context, coding shaders was one of the most hard to learn topics of unity: they were (and still can be) written on a different language (something like C++) using very technical properties of how pixels are rendered. This graphic node editor allows you to preview the result while you're building it giving you more room for experimentation without dealing with all the tech stuff. This doesn't mean you don't have to learn the tech stuff, but the learning curve is now SO MUCH easier. Another great advantage: It comes with Visual Studio totally preconfigured and ready to debug in real time! The perfect tool to start coding C# + Unity.

Cons: Not sure if this is Unity's fault, but if you already have Visual Studio, trying to configure it for Unity can be a problem. In the same way, adding some specific non-Unity-related packages to the preconfigured Visual Studio installed with Unity causes it to lose the "debug connection" with the Engine. That's an know issue and still haven't been solved according to the forums. Another thing that I don't like is that being shaders one of the hardest things to learn it hasn't been properly covered on the official tutorials. There's some videos there and you can understand how they work but creating your own shader can be totally overwhelming even with that knowledge. Hopefully the graph editor will make them create new tutorials on this topic.

Overall: Prototyping time is shorter. More advanced requirements are now more accessible and reachable. The engine Editor can be run on low spec laptops which is great if you invested a lot of money on a nice desktop but you'll be out of town for a while or spend a lot of time on the road. The engine's improvements don't stop! They hear the community and also see what the developers are needing to create innovative products.

Unity is a great engine for new and experienced game developers.

Pros: Unity is very easy to pick up and play with right away. The tutorials on the website will allow you to create a fully working game within hours of first installing it. Unity also has a community store where you can buy art or programming assets to help you quickly prototype your game.

It has a lot of built in features that are easy to work with as well. I've personally used the networking and it took something that was very intimidating at first and made it very easy to grasp and implement.

You can build you game to a ton of different platforms including web, Xbox, Playstation, PC, and mobile just by clicking a button. Everything works out of the box.

Unity also has a large community so finding answers to questions is pretty easy with a quick google search.

The last pro I'll mention is the dev team seems to address issues with the engine quickly and they are constantly adding new features.

Cons: There isn't much I didn't like with unity. The only negative experience I had was when the engine started to crash after my project would be open for about an hour. It was an issue with my project specifically, because I had other projects that it didn't happen on. The customer support team didn't really do a great job getting back to me, I would wait weeks at a time for a response. That was a few years ago though, so things could have changed.

The only other thing that was difficult in Unity was version control. This largely had to do with the binary files, and I don't know if other engines have a good solution for that. Unity does have a few packages in the store you can buy that are supposed to help but we had no luck with them.

Overall: It made game development a lot easier. We actually created a virtual reality game and they even had full support for that out of the box when VR was in its early stages. I really enjoyed working in the engine compared to others I've used because of how much time it saved and how easy it was to work with.

Pros: Unity made game development possible for anyone. You no longer have to be a designer or a programmer to create games. Unity is a user-friendly software with a great deal of unique tools that helps you design any sort of game. However, Unity being simple does not mean that it is only for beginners. As you start learning Unity you will find that it has a large variation of tools for advanced users. Unity also supports PC, console, web and mobile platforms. Unity also provides great learning materials which you can find on their website. You can also be a certified Unity developer by doing the online training and examination.

Cons: I was disappointed that I need to travel to certain countries to face the Unity developer certification exam. I would like if it was an online examination so that anyone can do it. I also do not like the fact that the certification is only valid through a certain period of time.

Overall: I have been using Unity for many years. I have used it mostly to create mobile games. I love the fact that Unity keeps updating regularly and each updates brings great new features. When I was a student I found Unity very useful and as a experienced user I still find it to be one of the great game development tools in the market.

Pros: Unity is a powerful tool both for beginners and for experts, I most like about it that it makes your job as a game developer much easier. You don't have to take care of things that can be very time-consuming like creating builds for several plattforms and creating network connections.

The program itself already has a lot of features and tools, but the asset store is what makes it to one of the most pratical ones - thousands of useful assets (models, sounds, tools) can be used for free or bought in the asset store and is imported easily in your project.

The price range is pretty good, the free version already has a lot of features and the cheap "plus"-version should be sufficent for most smaller studios.

Cons: Unity can be very memory and also cpu-consuming and tends to crash from time to time, which can result in a significant loss of time. Also problematic are older projects and assets, as unity is updated frequently and backwards-compability, especially for asset-store items, is not always given.

Overall: We are using unity as basis for most of our games, so everything we do kind of evolves around Unity and it's tools.

Pros: I wish Unity would have been around when I was a kid. I had aspirations to make games, I filled notebooks with game design and took programming classes... but I just couldn't pull it together on my own or meet the people that could have done it with me. Ever since Unity came along, all of that has changed. It covers the low level stuff that allows designer/developers like me to focus on the gamebuilding. I can't say that I've been a runaway success, but I've accomplished more as an adult- thanks to Unity, than I thought I ever would once I gave up on my dream in my late teens and focused on becoming a "regular" programmer.

Cons: It certainly isn't perfect. It has quirks and flaws, just like any other real world thing. All of those things are extensively documented across the net, and what is a blocking problem for some people goes unnoticed by others. That being said, the people Unity are working constantly to deliver requested features and make their users happy.

Overall: Changed my professional career.

Pros: Easy to use and do most of the heavy lifting necessary for videogames creation, and other media related software. It is cross-platform (build once deliver in multiple platforms) and its super effective to create game prototypes and iterate over them. It has a very big community and a store with a lot of user created content where you can find a lot of features out of the box besides the ones in the engine.

Really good tool to start AR/VR and videogame development.

Cons: The compiled files for mobiles are bigger than more simpler engines, but it gives you way more tools to work.

Its easy to use, but you still need some technical skills.

The pro license is expensive, but they take none of your royalties.

It's hard to achieve AAA game results, for that to happen you need some serious skills.

Overall: Fast and iterative process.

Easy to start making videogames (although knowing the bases helps a lot)

Cross platform compilation adn prodcut development

Lots of variety on the projects you can do with it.

Big community and nice support.

Pros: The reason why I didn't specify a fully featured game engine is because we have used it for far more than just games. We've used it in designing medical apps, educational, and standard apps. It's endless what you're able to do with the Unity engine and also equally as easy to develop and deploy to multiple platforms.

Cons: Scene files are a pain for source control. There hasn't been an elegant way devised to be able to merge scene files. Besides merge issues with such files, everything else works fine in source control.

Overall: We've been using it to develop games for consoles for a few years now and it's always been our number one choice for the ease of porting. Anything extra we needed we've been able to code into inspector and add onto the existing base without it really breaking with new upgrades. It's allowed us to customize our workflow to what we need and make use of the heavy lifting that Unity does for all aspects of development.

Pros: For someone who is not that comfortable with programming or designing, Unity is just amazing,it has such a large community who are extremely helpful and together with the tutorials offered by the app makes learning how to use it a wonderful experience and allow you to create amazing designs and excellent games.

Cons: You have to invest a lot of time for you to get the most out of the software, it is not really easy. You need to understand how to create scripts and designing the textures which take a lot of time to master.

Overall: Unity is just great for game developing, even for someone like me who didn't have a large base in programming; I used the tutorials, and with the community's help I was able to produce good games, I truly think that having a good programming base would be helpful though.

Games, VR, AR... Unity is just the tool for creating.

Pros: Unity is just the best and more user friendly software for making any kind of project which is object based, meaning things like video games, augmented reality, virtual reality, marketing, and even other type of projects. You can even export projects to mobile devices right away, android or iOS.

Cons: Nothing really, it's even amazing for first time users, very easy to use, and have a lot of tools to make you project looks great.

Overall: We wanted to make some apps for showing our product. Unity totally did the job and even gave us more tools to make the project look awesome.

Pros: Native integration has been boosted with the XR system.

Vuforia integration.

A huge amount of assets available on the asset store.

Working with it for 6+ years and still landing work with it.

Great customer service team.

Cons: Sometimes there will be issues and bugs. Especially related to external plugins like Google, Apple, etc. To be fair this is a teething issue all people would face whilst growing a software that needs to keep up with so much sdks and OS systems.

Overall: My successful business is centered around it.

Pros: As a game developer focus, I use Unity every day to design and develop video game projects. Timeline is my favorite feature in Unity. I add enemy waves for the game level with this feature of Unity. I am able to adjust coordination and duration of my game objects with Timeline. It is very much like editing films.

Cons: Sometimes, Unity adds some new features for the editor, machine learning agent, for example. It is not easy to learn these new features fast since there is a great amount of documentation. I hope Unity team can make their documentation more concise.

Pros: Unity is easy to use and allows you to make any sort of application as long as you have the inspiration and imagination. It also has a free option to see if Unity is right for you and your project.

Cons: Not as powerful as others on the market, also certain things may be locked out until you purchase a subscription

Overall: I use Unity every day at my job and I'm always discovering new things. If I want to try something new most of the time unity can do it.

A wide-spectrum development environment that may, unfortunately be pricing itself out of the market.

Pros: Functionality

Flexibility

Platform support

Cons: Subscription model pricing.

Overall: I've been a Unity developer almost since inception, and a Unity iOS dev since the very first iOS Pro version. Unity3d is a phenomenal example of a tool that can be used by all levels of game / app dev, from rookie to AA or AAA-level pro. The Asset Store only enhances the experience (although Unity could benefit from some tighter QC of third-party offerings). However, the move to a subscription-only model for Pro users is a bit of a slap in the face to we who have paid for and championed the system for years., and the 40% off of a single year does little to lessen the blow.

To be fair, Unity is allowing us to keep our perpetual licenses, which I intend to do, though support and enhancements will be halted sooner than I'd like.

I recommend the "basic" level to all: it's free and it's very full-featured. Pro, however? Tough call: it's a costly contract that indies may find difficult to bear.

Pros: Unity is a good software for beginning at game designing, if at first you don't know most about programming, the tutorials it offers and it's large and friendly community will help you improve overall. Unity is also a really flexible and user friendly game engine that works wonders for small games

It supports and is compatible with every game

platform. Is easy to pick up and get started. Good for small simplistic games for mobile.Unity is extremely user friendly in comparison to other game engines. The Asset Store is a huge feature and helps a lot newcomers. If you like to be a game designer, I think Unity is the place to start.

Cons: You really need to invest a lot of time to learn how to use it because you need to know it's programming language and how to write the scripts before designing textures for games. You really need power in your pc or else it is going to crash a lot and get really buggy.

Overall: It is an excellent game designing system, you need to invest a lot of time to learn how to program with it though, but overall working with it is an amazing experience

Excellent 3D software for designers and devs!

Pros: What I like the most about Unity is it's huge and vast community, almost any question or doubts you may have would already be answered and there's many, many tutorials made by users and the Unity team as well. The Engine is a great starting tool for people new to Game Development because it is very easy once you learn the basics and the UI is completely flexible to be arranged to your needs.

Cons: Unity 3d has never disappointed me in any way but the only thing that I didn't like was some features were not available in the free version and made my games look a a bit off but it didn't matter a lot so I guess it's alright !

Overall: I'd say anyone who's wanting to get their feet dirty in the world of Game Design and Development must definitely try Unity 3D. It's great for making games of any type to any size. It's also one of the best engines to use if you're looking to make games for android/iOS. They should be teaching Unity3D in schools !

Pros: Tons of resources on the web. Easy to start using their game templates, or take it a step further and write a game using code and their game objects from scratch. Have been tinkering in Unity for over a decade now because it is fun and also a great game dev tool. I love that I don't have to pay anything to start using it. The store is filled with tons of cool assets, some free ones and some worth paying for.

Cons: There isn't much I don't like, but I guess if I had to pick something it would be that the interface can feel a little cluttery at times, but really it's because there are just so much functionality how else are they supposed to show it?

Overall: I started programming back in the days of Microsoft's XNA and Unity is the tool I dreamed of working with back then. RIP XNA.

Pros: As a 3D artist, I find Unity extremely intuitive and easy to use. Exporting assets and animations is the easiest thing ever, and the particle system "shuriken" is so awesome.

Cons: Maybe if possible, improving a little the graphics for physical based render engine, Because of that's what makes developers choose Unity only for 2D or mobile games.

Pros: Unity is the perfect engine for someone looking to learn because of the low price point and large community. But is is also an engine that you can grow with as you learn. With other "learner" engines, once you learn enough about it, you move on to a better engine, but with Unity, it's all the same engine.

Cons: A lot of the fancy things the Unity engine can do require third party software that is not as cheap as the engine. This means that it is good to learn on, but when you get serious about making an actual / sell-able piece of software, you will need to spend some more money.

Overall: A great engine with limitless possibilities.

Pros: Even thought the interface could be a little hard to understand at first, there is a lot of different walkthroughs all around to guide you in your journey.

Cons: Its probably not the best in making 2D games, so that is something that could be done better, its better known for its quality in developing 3D games

Pros: Unity is a popular game engine for developing 2D and 3D video games. One of the best features of Unity is that it is free. This makes it easy for students, new developers, and indie teams to get started without prohibitive costs. Unity also allows for export to many of the most popular consoles. Unity has almost all of the features needed for game development such as simulation and an extensive programming side.

Cons: Unfortunately, Unity is not compatible with many popular modeling and animation software which can make it difficult to integrate graphics. Unity also has quite a steep learning curve, but there are many resources available online.

very nice.

Pros: Game development has never been easier before I found Unity. It provides really cool interfaces for managing graphical assets and their properties. The code that you write to build the game is also supported by multiple platforms. It also provides¿ support to link your objects to the ¿source code by just dragging and dropping.

Cons: It requires a bit more resources to run and build your games.

Overall: I have used it to build a simple game and realized it is a lot easier to build a game with Unity. It was similar to building an ¿iOS application in swift using storyboard.

Pros: Unity packs everything you could possibly want from a game design tool into one package, minus the fine asset creation. You can easily add in your assets for a 2D or 3D game, and code on the spot with C#. Finding bugs is made relatively easily, as long as you are testing your game regularly. Even the unity asset store gives you everything you need for at least baseline games, before unique assets are finalized.

Cons: I can't say there's much I dislike about Unity. Only thing I possibly could say is that the UI could see some more refinement. There's customization that could be had as far as moving units, but some of the menus are a little clunky or hide things that should be easier to find in a broad sense.

Pros: The main draw of unity is that you can write your code once, and deploy it to multiple platforms, namely IOS and android (although there are others, these are the two that most people will be interested in). unity has a nice combination of GUI and code based development where you have a main view that shows what your scene will look like, and then you can also pull up what are called scripts to provide some sort of function or behavior. these scrips can be associated with objects and run when they are created. it takes some getting used to, but it ultimately is very effective. Unity also has a wide variety of pre-defined scripts and objects that can be downloaded fro m their community of users. some are free and some need to be bought.

Cons: unity is a complex piece of software. it gives you lots of power, but there is a steep learning curve. a built in tutorial would be nice to help newbies like me get up to speed faster. although they do have a library of video tutorials, a built in interactive one would be better.

Pros:

The latest version allows you to use shaders in a more visual way rather than working with code, which is great since this reduces the gap between game designers or artist and programmers, allowing game development more accessible for everyone.

Multi-platform, you can export a project to plenty of platforms.

Cons: Default lightning setting could be improved.

The lack of potentially powerful tools when it comes terrain creation.

Overall: Quick debug for projects for many devices.

Pros: Unity is the most used engine in the market, so there are lots of extensibility options and workforce available to create a project with it. Nowadays the engine has the same graphical quality as seen in other engines.

Cons: Their pricing is not that friendly, and if you want do some serious work with it, you'll eventually buy their license. Also, their support is not great when addressing feature requests.

Overall: We've used Unity in many personal and professional projects, in all cases it was fairly easy to implement and the result was great.

Pros: It is easy to learn, that would be my main point. I used Unity when I was my bachelors in Multimedia design. I made a lot of small games and it was very efficient. The platform is very good for someone like me that make small games as a hobby.

Cons: This platform is very easy to use but that is because I have used similar platforms. I would not recommend this software to someone that is beginning to create games. If the software can be made a bit more easier to use then this would help out beginners a lot.

Overall: I studied how to use this software when I was doing my degree and created a few games since then, It is a very good software and if you already know how to code and create games you should definitely try and use this.

Pros: It was the first software I used for mobile gaming designing and just by using the tutorials online and the ones the software offers I produced good quality content easily. Also it is really cross platformed in a way that you can produce your games and being able to run them in android, IOS or Windows, and this makes unity really powerful.

Cons: It is expensive if you want to use the paid version and use the program to it's fullest potential. Also for someone with not that much of experience while programming it could be a challenging software to use.

Overall: I truly recommend Unity, for anybody who has a solid programming knowledge it should be a piece of cake producing beautiful cross platform mobile games.

Pros: You can literally create any kind of game using Unity. From Real-time strategies, to MOBAs, to turn-based RPGs. I am seeing both huge gaming companies using it, and indie game enthusiasts that want to start building their first game.

Cons: I see a new trend where games made using Unity are very sloppy. The problem, I believe, is that it's ease-of-use backfires, and now you have amateurs and beginners making a lot of well-budgeted games that make it to the market. It used to be that only experienced and well trained people could finish a game and make it ready for distribution.

Overall: Using Unity you can be absolutely certain from the start, that this game will work, and it will work on many platforms.

Pros: Unity is hands down the best engine for lower budget and indie developers, but don't be fooled, it does not mean that the tools offered are compromised considering the budget of its user base.

Whether its the on the publishing side with full support of IOS and Android to the suite of engine tools that include (but not limited to) anim state machines, terrain sculpting, texture painting, global illumination lighting, etc.

Hands down, Unity is a fantastic choice for any developer looking for cutting edge development tools and results that won't break the bank.

Cons: While no game engine is perfect, in my experience, Unity is hands down the best you'll get for the price. With that said, I find it difficult to call out any 'Cons,' and only look forward to the features they continue to add.

Overall: Unity makes it extremely easy to develop games across multiple platforms without redundancy(having to develop same game) for each platform.

Not only for fun, is good too for the learning and I see in this tool a continuous present of growth

Cons: I don't think this is a cons, but I it's important to know that this software must be learned step by step. Each windows, component, object... has many functionality. And it's extremely recommended to be a medium or senior programmer (better in C#) for take advantage of this powerful video game software

Pros: Unity is a powerful engine with a very easy introductory curve. There are lots of online resources to help you get your feet wet, but the engine provides enough power to make actual, professional quality games. Good for a beginner to learn how to make games without shelling out tons of cash, or for a professional who's looking to make a real AAA quality title.

Cons: The online tutorials and guides are very geared towards making 3D games. Unity is capable of making excellent 2D games as well, but if you don't want to make a platformer, you'll have to do a little digging to find out what to do. YouTube has a good collection of helpful videos made by fans of the engine, however.

Overall: Unity taught me about programming and working with professional quality engines.

Pros: Unity community is big, I can easily get answers whenever I get into a complex situation where I get stuck. This is the best type of non paid help that you can get when using a free software. Also the object scripting makes your life easier and this game engine has a lot of assets to help you get started.

Cons: The only problem is that Unity is one of the most complex game engines out there, I consider that the learning curve will be high on the start, you need to fully understand the platform in order to start your first project, all the tasks on your first project will depend on how much experienced you are with Unity.

Overall: I used Unity for my final project of object oriented programming at college, it took me around 1 month to learn the tool and 5 days to do the project.

Cons: It doesn't have any modeling system.

Modeling, texturing and animation could be better.

You need coding skills to make a good project.

Overall: I work on several video game projects.

Pros: Unity is an essential for the modern game developer looking to work in 3D. Even if you decide to graduate, it is something that really deserves a literacy - wether for quick prototyping, teaching, or otherwise essential game development tasks.

Cons: Unity is rather buggy, a cost that comes with the many features packed into this little workhorse of an engine. Make sure you read up on any experimental new addition before going with it, which fortunately is easy to do thanks to the engine's fantastic support community.

Overall: Unity has helped me in various artistic projects, and I am appreciative of its versatility and support community.

Cons: The interface was difficult to get used to and a little jarring. The multiple windows within a window counterintuitively made it more difficult to keep track of so many things at once.

Overall: For a novice programmer who has only worked at the coding level, it was quite an overwhelming experience, but I¿m sure in a team environment or for a more skilled developer it¿s a great tool.
