Great course, got to learn and understand good things about developing games in general and particularly in Unity. I highly suggest it for someone who has no experience whatsoever at game development.

Really great course! It was more challenging towards the end of it, but I enjoyed it and recommend it. I hope that my completing the course marked the start of my future as a game designer and maker.

The class is easy to follow and gives a solid foundation to being learning Unity and game production. Some of the scripts are out of date but they are easily fixed and the discussion forum is full of people willing to help!

While it did teach me a lot of what i wanted to know, I feel it spoon fed me too often with regards to the scripting components. Other than that it was tons of fun and I would definitely recommend it to some of my friends.

I enjoyed doing the projects which really helped me have an understanding on the subject. It's perfect for shifting programmers, with basic programming knowledge, who like to slowly immerse in game development.

The course is well-paced, and the projects are really interesting. Making each project is hands-on, and I think it gives you an intuitive feel for developing a basic game and using Unity proficiently.

A very nice introduction to Game Development. A great job that ensures the learner to get started immediately and thereby being able to integrate the knowledge directly. I loved the practical projects!

It is one of the best course I have ever seen. I love it as in this course basics are taught and there isn't much concern on coding. Great course for basic Game Dev Knowledge and basic experience

Learning online was better then expected. Sometimes there was some hard tasks without all the hints, but searching for answers is a good way of learning. There forum isn´t very helpful though

its really an awesome experience ..but need to be more precise on the use of upcoming versions .need to go deep in using c# in unity ...overall its really worth for the time spending.

I've learned a lot through this course about Unity! The only down side is that the video's are HEAVILY outdated, so things that worked in the past doesn't apply to the newer versions.

Really great course. I would much rather have more coding, but I suppose it's equally important to know how the Unity engine works properly before getting into too much coding.

This was hard fun. Exciting for the skills you get to learn, difficult because the material is a little outdated so you're gonna have to work to figure out the work arounds.

Excellent course to get started with. Concise and fun lessons with really fun assignments. I do wish the quizzes were slightly more challenging/longer.

Would recommend, 8/10!

Well this course is absolutely amazing, all the 3 projects were hard fun but week 4 was quite tough for me. Overall it's the best course to start learning Game Development.

Muy buen curso! Está muy bien para empezar a entender cómo funciona Unity 3D. Le añadiría un poco más de clases de C# y alguito más de diseño, pero en general muy bueno :)

The Course is Really beneficial i learned a lot, my only feedback that some of the parts are outdated due to the updates within the engine other than that its really great

Every week was easy to follow except for the last one. Even with basic knowledge of OOP the it was a tough. So a person who is not programmer has no chance understanding.

It is a good start. Makes you acquainted with the Unity Engine. For those who want to learn game programming, this isn't for you, but it is a good course. Well explained.

Great intro to game development. I wish it had covered a bit more about coding in Unity as well as importing assets from other software, but overall very informative.

Me gustó mucho. La verdad sí introduce ciertos conocimientos y habilidades que te permiten explorar Unity, motivando el desarrollo de habilidades para crear juegos.

It was a great course.The topics were well understood and the techniques used to make the games are providing a good basis for further game dev learning (in unity)

An excellent intro to Unity. Doesn't waste time and has you put projects on the screen fast. Not much programming in this first course but that's not a bad thing.

4/5 Rating. Would've been better if programming was focused on this course as well, however I learned a lot. A good course for learning the fundamentals of Unity
