    Insurgency is a breath of fresh air and I can easily see myself playing it every chance I get.

    Forget about fast-paced shooters and frenetic action. This one relies on a team-based mechanic, where every move should be planned. There's room for improvement when it comes to the visuals and the bullet-detection system, but still it is a very recommended choice.

    After a long time a military shooter that is not pretentious, and that scores with emphasis on both hardshell mechanics and tactics/feel. Maybe there could have been many more gaming modes along with maps.

    Realistic and for dedicated players this is a good but hard multiplayer shooter. Death comes early and often in Insurgency's universe.

    Insurgency is a game that doesn’t have any big problems but rather it has a bunch of little ones that culminate.

    If you don’t mind fighting over the same cluttered iraqi streets and desolate afghan hills that you’ve seen a hundred times before, Insurgency brings enough hardcore sensibility and competent execution to stand out from the other multiplayer shooters. The old-school gameplay combined with updated mechanics are a breath of fresh air in a genre crowded with games that don’t understand that failure can still be fun.

    I just made an account on metacritic just to tell you how awsome this game is.
    Hardcore-Realism-Teamwork are the three aspects of this game.

    Hardcore-Realism-Teamwork are the three aspects of this game. If you are looking into
    such experience dont hesitate just go for it. CoD-BF and other fps are just time-wasters
    in front of this. There is lack of community atm though..I hope this is just a temporary state
    and people who loves fps give more appreciation on this game.

I would say I amI bought this game when it was on sale during late 2014. Other than ghost recon, this game was the first shooter I ever got. I would say I am pretty good at the game, and despite the fact I don't have much experience with FPS. This game is a good first FPS for anyone thinking about trying the genre. It is extremely hardcore and that is why I think it is so awesome. If you are inexperienced and get good at this game, you can be great at other FPS. Buy this game! Expand

NWI, i am your newest greatest fan...Thanks for restoring faith in the genre again! Expand

    Okay, let's put this out there before I get started; I suck at most FPS games. I do well enough to have a good time every other round, but forOkay, let's put this out there before I get started; I suck at most FPS games. I do well enough to have a good time every other round, but for the most part I suck. That being said this game makes me feel good. I'm not saying that because I'm better at this game than most other FPS, no. I'm just saying, with the "realistic" damage and the amount of recoil, it's easier to actually get a kill: in a one-on-one confrontation. Put 2+ enemies in front of you and you'll more than likely die, if not shortly after while you reload. But, nevertheless, it's a good time with friends or even random people,most people play the objective and if they don't, they usually die and have to watch other people play better. I normally don't like the "get killed and then a forced into spectator mode" type thing, but in here it works well and really makes you ant to play better and better. The guns are great and all have their strengths and weaknesses, but most require a bit of skill to use. I strongly recommend to play the tutorial first, and to ignore all these negative comments. I read most of them and I think some are just upset because they died a lot, just my opinion though. At $15, it's a steal. Expand

    As most of the people i see writing reviews here i signed up just to review this awesome game. Let me first start with the Developers. YOUAs most of the people i see writing reviews here i signed up just to review this awesome game. Let me first start with the Developers. YOU CANT FIND a more dedicated and reliable group of guys to make a awesome game. With such a small group its mind blowing how kickass this game is. The team work is essential in this game and so is a microphone. Communication, awareness and patience are what will keep you alive and helping your team in this game. This isn't some AAA company (which we all know the few i'm pointing out) claiming to be something it isn't. They took a risk of mixing DOD 1.3 , COD1, CSS and Red Orchestra into one. They couldn't have done it more fluid. The game is constantly being updated and patched. New guns are to come soon, along with maps. To sum this all up you honestly owe it yourself to give this game a try. for 15$ and a active Dev team. YOU CANT GO WRONG! Expand

Facing players with 245 ms ping in a game that is primarily based on reaction times (the avg. human reaction time is something like 180 ms) is a *huge* problem.

    The game also plays more like a mod than a full game. It's basically the old Source engine from 2005 (?) with some new cosmetics.

    Do not buy.
