Comment by cdunlap
about Torque 3D Jun 2011

Has to be one of the worst game engines I've ever used, and I've been doing this since 1997. T2D/TGB is OK, but T3D/TGE(A) all suck. The tools are buggy (especially on Windows 7) and I can almost guarantee you the tools will crash within the first 30 minutes of use... maybe an hour if you're lucky. Look elsewhere... I suggest Unity3D or UDK.
