Pros: I have used Unity now on several projects and will continue to do so. They have a very responsive dev team and some already great features making this the engine you should be using!

Cons: Coming from other game engines, I felt this was a more steep curve learning Unity, but after working out the kinks it was easy enough to pick up on the differences.

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: Anyone that wants to make a game for any platform can learn this software in just a few days with no experience.

Cons: Many of the menus are large making it rather difficult to design your game using one monitor. A multi-monitor setup is a necessity, or a very large monitor/tv.

I've used Unity for 3 years while studying Game Design and making small games and prototypes

Pros: I love that Unity is such and easy but powerful tool for game development. I've often found myself lost or stuck while using other softwares, but Unity has proven to be a lot easier, and it's online community helps a lot

Cons: Despite it getting better and better, I still think it's support for making 2D games could get some improvements. Maybe a better and easier interface

Is simply an amazing game develop tools with an easy-to-us environment

Pros: Is an amazing tool for videogame dev, easy to use and capable of awesome products, for a beginner is the perfect and for pros is just perfect as well.

Cons: You need to set up almost everything to work perfect, shades, blur and particle effects. But that's not a big issue, once you learn how to do it there's no more trouble

Overall: Im learning how to make videogames and this software is the best for it, simply to use and very friendly for an amateur like me. I just love it.

Used as my primary engine on my Game Design graduation

Pros: The most accessible, easy to use and versatile engine for begginers-veterans alike that intend to develop indie games. Really intuitive, powerful and has a great community

Cons: Needs a lot of work to make some more good-looking effects that are standard nowadays in gaming, but at least it has a good library

Overall: Made an awesome game out of it

I use Unity3D to create augmented reality, virtual reality, and mixed reality training simulators .

Pros: Price, performance, and ease of use are some of the biggest selling points for Unity3D. Unity3D personal edition is free and the tutorials allow you to learn without having to lay out anything for a license.

Cons: They change versions a few times a year which can be frustrating when trying to do older tutorials that haven't been updated to the most recent version.

Overall: Powerful Cross Platform App Development

Unity is a good software to make games.

Pros: 1 person can make a good game, and don´t need a powerfull pc.

Cons: THe linux version don´t works very good.

Overall: Unity 3d has a free and a pay versión, with the free one we can make enought, but if we need to make a more professional project, can buy the paid version.

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.
