Blender is intended to make high quality animations. Two obstacles usually prevent users from this type of applications. First and foremost, there is money, because 3D-rendering programs are prohibitively expensive for many users. Second, there is usability since using these tools requires a lot of expertise. Luckily, Blender is free, so that leaves only the second barrier left.

Pros:
  • It creates high-quality 3D animations.
  • It is open-source.
  • It has an extensive support and development community.
  • It includes lots of options, functions and tools.
  • It supports downloading and adding extras.
  • Extras can also be programmed.
Cons:
  • It is difficult to use.

On the other hand, high-detailed models, even while they look much more impressively, can and usually cause slowdown of game's performance and sometime make gameplay unsatisfying. A proper balance of details, texture-work and polygons optimization is what 3D artist should be aimed to.
