Having made a game in this engine I can say that it is a good engine, I started with zero knowledge of Unreal Engine 4(I did have programming experience) but whenever I had a question I could go to the dedicated answerhub and ask my question for support.

The community is also cool, if you are making something cool, send a message to the community message and ask them to feature you, they feature a few games every other week.

The UI of the engine is confusing to begin with but once you get used to the UI it is decent.

Unreal is not open-source.

Here's the source code.
https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine
In order to access the code you need to create a free account on Epic Games website.

That's good to know. I wasn't aware they made the source code available. Strictly speaking, this doesn't make it open-source, since they don't grant a license allowing others to change or redistribute the source code for any purpose. Still, it's much better than completely locking the code down.

Hmm... So I guess my definition of "Open-Source" was wrong ! Sorry and TnX BtW !

You definition is ok. He just trying to be smartass and cant understand difference between open source and free (as freedom).
