Great course a lot of valuable information hopefully the instructor can make a course on a topic a bit more advance like making something like tomb raider or grand theft auto

Short and very useful. Teacher describes every his step. After this course you will know how create your own systems. P.S. It would be great to have it in FullHD .

This course is actually good. I know a little bit of Unreal. But this was a top place to learn to consolidate my knowledge. I also like this style of short snappy and to the point instruction. Really look forward to the next course with this instructor.

This course brushes over too much content too quickly. I feel that this course needs to be much longer to accommodate more detailed explanations.

the content taught is pretty good, actually its pretty much what i always wanted, but i wish the instructor was a bit clearer when speaking and also didn't do everything so fast without really explaining what each thing does.

so far so good i was trying to learn c# during the week and just could not get on with it but now using unreal what took 3 days i managed to do in 20 min it's awesome.

I already following this educater in youtube, his tutorials are very simple, understandeble and useful. I just bought this course to support him.

Before taking this course I already took 30 hrs course about Unreal engine for beginners. So I didn't find it difficult to follow the course because I knew many concepts and it helped me to refresh my knowledge and also to learn a ton of new practical skills. It has all the information necessary for the creation almost of any 3d platformer, and it can be learned in a matter of a day. For complete beginners it can be difficult to follow because of the pace, the instructor really managed to squeeze 20 + hours of materials in just 3 hours! But it is also rewarding to see the progress so fast! And the project with all assets is very beautiful, too. I would recommend two things to make this course just perfect. 1. Please use a better microphone, sometimes its a real strain to listen as the sound is too low. And talk a little bit slower if you can )) 2. Please use highlights (Camtasia would be perfect for that), as your pace is really fast and sometimes a student can miss one second, fail to press on a checkbox because he just didn't notice it and then nothing may work as expected. Or make the pace slower when you need to chose something or tick a box, so that the students are aware of what you are doing. Overall I loved your course, learned a lot, and I would be happy to buy more courses from you because they are practical, beautiful and very fast paced (it is an advantage for me). I would love to see a course about dialogue systems for quests in Unreal (with multiple choice and animations depending on the choice, to make story-driven games with multiple endings, like Detroit or Heavvy Rain style). There are no courses on Udemy and very few tutorials on Youtube about this type of games in Unreal. So please make one if you can! Thank you again for the great course!
