This paper focuses on detailing the four most important first-person shooter (FPS) game engines to date, including individual technical characteristics for each one, as used for scientific research purposes and projects. The id Tech, Unreal, Source and Torque engines have all been used as cost-effective yet inexpensive visualisation tools that can yield photorealistic, easy-to-modify results in immersive and engaging virtual environments and this has been taken advantage of by many researchers from fields as diverse as education, training, health, artificial intelligence, psychology and cultural heritage. © 2008 IADIS.
