1) What is the best free engine for something like this.
2) What is the best engine that is not free.
I was messing around with Blender until I read that from a lot of people that it's really bad for making games.Also I have basic knowledge of Python, if that makes a difference.

If you are looking for Python specific engines, that narrows it down to 2. Blender Game Engine and Panda.

Python is a great choice for a beginner or professional, so I hope that you stay with it to get skilled with the language.
Some awesome games have been made with the Blender game engine area of Blender, but generally you need to be careful with what and how you render in it. The game engine is quite powerful now with the latest release a few weeks ago, actually.
Personal life and your private thoughts always effect your career. Research is the intellectual backbone of game development and the first order. Version Control is crucial for full management of applications and software. The better the workflow pipeline, then the greater the potential output for a quality game. Completing projects is the last but finest order.

Follow your gut, there are some good suggestions from these replies also. Personally I liked using Blitz3d, it created random maps and the Torque engine as well.
Look into Serapht's link he posted!
