If you have never heard of Nexuiz, you are not alone, but you are missing out. The original release was back in 2005, and they are now up to version 2.4 which is much more highly polished than the original. Phoronix has a bevy of screenshots as well as links to the Alientrap website where you can download the game for Windows, Linux and OSX.
Give it a try, it's free and easy to set up, who knows you might even like it.
"Since the release of Nexuiz 1.0 in 2005, we have been tracking its progress as one of the leading open-source first
person shooters. With time, this fast-pace game has picked up a nice level of artificial intelligence for its in-game
bots, engine optimizations, single-player campaign missions, and a variety of technical advancements. Nexuiz has always
been one of the leading open-source first person shooter games, and with the release of Nexuiz 2.4 yesterday it
reaffirms that you don't need to be a major game studio -- or a game studio at all -- to develop a quality title and
even for being a free software game it has impressive graphics. With the graphical settings near maximized, a GeForce
8600GT on a quad-core system was brought to its knees by this free software (and free content) game."
