Comment Re:Source 1 was awful (Score 1) 88

Source was never "awesome". idtech4 came out before it, for christ's sake.

Source is saddled with tiny maps/levels that are exceedingly slow to load. The graphics are OK but seem to require hardware that is capable of producing much better results using other engines like CryEngine or UE3. Finally, and this is changing now, but it was targeted way too strongly into DirectX.

Minor quibble: the IOS mobile authenticator app won't run in the simulator because the IOS sim is not an emulator. You need to compile an app specifically for the sim.

The Android sim is actually a full-fledged emulator and so can run any app, but is obviously much less performant because of that.
