I know one guy doing the games msc course in Hull this year who did his undergrad at Teeside. The project work I’ve seen looked pretty good, including an impressive raytracer from final year. Don’t really know too much about the course aside from that.
As for facilities, afaik they have XBox devkits, and the mocap suite is nice, but most universities doing games programming or animation over here seem to have them now (Hull does, so does Bradford) and if the course is as intense as the Hull one you won’t have the time to get near motion capture work unless you use it for your dissertation project.
I can definitely recommend Hull, especially since Jon still has a piece of my work up on mscgames.com :wink:
