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.

Great introduction to Unity3D. Everything is taught in a very comprehensive level. I would have liked to see more fundamentals of C# scripting though.

Really enjoyed this course. I just wish it had been updated to use a later version of Unity as quite a lot has changed since the videos were created.

its a solid course but i find it lacking at the programming side, you learn a very small amount and than replace all the scripts with premade ones

This is a great course to learn the basic of Unity Engine. I was expecting a different approach on scripting, but it was very interesting anyway.

good experience and definitely a great primer on unity. didn't really focus on coding until the last lecture; even then it was pretty minimal.

Some given assets need to be upgrades or provided for the latest version of Unity. Otherwise a great class well worth the time and effort.

I being a programmer, was able to understanding how scripting works. But I really think it should have been taught in detail a bit!

The course works nicely as an introduction to Unity 3D, and some of the basic concepts that you may find later in game development.

I think the scripting part was a little weak but I understand that it's an introductory course. The rest was pretty solid overall.

It was fun to work through this course, it was simple/easy to follow along and the projects were interesting enough to work on.

It was some work. But not to hard. The grading process was somewhat unfair. It only leaves you with two choices. 0 and 5points.

Only hurdle was some downloaded assets that wouldn't work with the animator.

Well paced, clear, and easy to pick up.
