The instructor extremely enthusiastic and passion which is really rare to see but amazing. Thank you so much for teaching this course it really helped to kick start my interest in game development :)
Very good instructor walks you through every step and then has assignments for you to do on your own to practice your coding skills. Emphasizes using documentation and practicing fundamentals.

Pros:+) Smooth introduction into Unity engine+) Few tips and insights from experienced game programmer+) Free book with valuable info on Unity and advanced C#, that are not covered completely in the course itselfCons:-) Workload is overestimated-) Too much basic programming concepts-) No active discussions on forum, no peer-evaluation projects-) Some unnecessary topics are detailed, while important things are covered poorlyOverall, I would recommend the course if you can get it for free or discounted, but in my opinion it does not worth full-price. If you are motivated enough, the course can also be completed during the trial of 7 days. However, if you consider to go on with the specialisation, then paying for all 4 courses pays off.

Great course, and instructor has a lecture style that makes things fun. Only criticism is that this course would be extremely difficult for someone with no programming experience at all.
Took away a star because I'm really not a fan of the grading system. I completed my week 4 assignment nearly a week early, and I'm still waiting for my grade. Also, forums don't look very active. I have a feeling there aren't many people taking the course, much less activity on the forums since week 1 so there's a chance the students that were there early on either dropped out or lost interest. Of course this means not enough students to peer review your assignment, which can have you waiting around for your grade.

Overall a very solid course. Some inconveniences in finding the essential materials because in one instance they were not labelled in the ZIP file. The lecturer is great though and he does make it easy to understand. I wish there was a little more explanation for some topics, however, to reinforce the learnings from previous weeks. The exercises are good practice and is a step up from another course I did. Overall, 4/5 :) Good job Dr. T!

The Teacher is Great and he teaches really well. but the peer review homeworks were made only as optional because of coursera peer review system issues. So, because they're optional, doing them feels not so much of an achievement but extra work. And the Assignments at the end of every week were replaced with too easy tests. That's my only issue with this course, everything else from exercises to videos, it was awesome.

I felt the instructor was fairly clear, very personable, and enjoyable to listen to. I learned a lot in the course, particularly in how to approach programming on a fundamental level. One main difficulty with the course; however, is that often my newest version of Unity would not be compatible with the exercise material, which made it impossible for me to complete a number of exercises.

Many others seemed to find it easy to follow, but I found the teacher's pace difficult to keep up with and his Lesson-Instructions a bit hard to follow, especially when interspersed with personal stories that got me off track, attention-wise. This might just be because I'm on the Autism Spectrum, though. Will Be switching programming languages//teachers to see if it was just me.

Very useful and a wonderful teacher. I encountered some issues with the version of both Unity and my IDE which was different from the one used for creating the different projects provided in the zip files. So an explanation on the compatibility between versions should have been a plus.
Thanks a lot anyway, it will help me in the future for creating games!

The start of the course was really nice and explanatory, however, I feel that towards the later parts, many new elements were being added without much explanation, and it got a bit difficult to understand everything. All in all. this was a good course, and I would like to thank Dr.T for opening new doors for me.

This is a fine course to learn about Unity and the principles of OO programming. On the other hand, it does not emphasize the fundamentals of programming itself. This is fine if you are not really interested in C#. Dr. T. is a very nice guy and I haven't seen such in-video quizzes in Coursera yet.

Great course. The professor is very friendly and explains things very well. The only reason this is not a 5 star is because sometimes he doesn't explain everything and you have to search on the Internet to grasp the things he uses while coding. Other than that very good course

I' am new to the Unity and C# programming. This course gives introductory information on both of these areas. I expected more from the course in terms of coding lectures. Since this course has a specialization I am sure ı can get more experience in coding in the next course.

This is a very good course to take in order to understand programming in C# and using the Unity game engine. This course will help you understand the basics of coding in C#. I would totally advice you to take this course if you want to master game development.

Muy buen curso para introducirse a Unity, aunque un ejercicio nos pedían usar la clase Time sin habernos si quiera mencionado antes esa clase en el curso, sin embargo, buscando en la documentación lo pude resolver, después de eso, satisfecho con el curso.

This course gained basic knowledge of Unity and C# Programming. But the course is still need to update with new knowledge like manipulating audio and animations so that we can learn how to make a basic arcade game after learning this course.

It was a great course. Dr. T is an amazing and entertaining teacher. the slight problem I had with the course is the amount of unity classes and methods used, sometimes it was a bit overwhelming. Other than that it was a great experience.

I had a little background experience with programming before, but I must say, the assignments towards the end get a little challenging and I struggled for a few hours because there was not much clarification. But nothing impossible.

I learned a lot, but the course felt somewhat disjointed. It was really helpful to have the guidance of the course though, and I feel like I could start to make a game now with what I learned if I really wanted!

Good introduction to game scripting with Unity. Felt there is more scope to introduce difficulty in the programming assignments and exercises. Video quizzes where pointless and not witty enough to be worth it

Thanks for helping me to understand coding and actually boosting my confidence with the various assignments, This was my first step in coding world and I think it was in the right direction

As all good lecturer you love their lecture for inspiration and good teaching, but have the assignment as they push you beyouind the notch of what was cover in class...
Thks Dr. T.

Even as a smooth brain such as myself I was able to learn the course pretty easily as its very easy to follow every lesson. I recommend greatly if you want to start coding.

Good course to step into game development especially with Unity. Helps revise basic C# skills as well. Fun professor with engaging and not very intensive content/lectures.

The last two assignments were a bit tough but that's okay when the required lessons for those have been well taught. They were kind of undercooked for the last two weeks.

It's alright if you've never done coding before. Coming into it with a bit of experience, it seemed a little slow, but the Unity portions were explained very well.

Great introduction to C# and Unity. Wish it had been expanded a little more to a full 5 weeks of material, but this still provides a solid foundation to build on.
