Thanks a lot! I checked out the website for Unity and it looks to be a promising engine, the price is a bit crazy though for a license (well crazy to me since I am only doing this as a hobby) But I suppose if it were to become more, 1500 isn't a lot to pay. Thanks again though!

Unity has a free version with restricted features, your allowed to earn upto $100000 with it before they insist on you using the full version (by which point 1500 per year is nothing). For such a good engine aswell $1500 is nothing.
UDK non-commercial is free, $99 + a percentage of sales allows you to sell commercial games with it, a certain amount of revenue you have to pay the full license which makes $1500 look like pocket change.
Either way, if your just getting started in game dev then this might be a too big project. And the graphics quality of a game will very rarely depends on the engine, its more to do with the quality of the models and textures you put into it, although unity aswell as offering an engine have a web store where you can buy licenses to use various assets in your own projects. Just downloading a model from somewhere and using it is usually against copyright law, unitys webstore you can buy them legally to use in any engine, not just unity, but they might not be cheap.
Do you have any programming experience at all?
