Does any one have any opinions after using Python with Blender's Game engine to make games? I want to know if Blender is any good at making games with Python.

It is definitely a game engine as well, I'd checked that before posting.

But I want to know if it is any good.

I've never used the Blender game engine but from what I've seen of it, it looks like it could be pretty good. I guess it depends on what kind of game you're making but if it's not too complex using Blender may be a good choice. Why not try and create a quick prototype of whatever you're trying to make using Blender and see if you like how it all works and if it's able to do what you want? If you find you like it, use it.

I've used it some. I would say it is excellent for a game prototype or small game. It's fast to make a game, but feels a little limited. It's a great way to get started both with Blender modeling and making a small game. I had fun with it, but eventually decided to increase my knowledge of c++. I still use Blender, and may use the engine again sometime. Give it a try. You don't even need python to get started, you can just connect logic switch boxes, using python increases what you can do.
