    Multiplayer-only and mod-oriented, Rekoil offers visuals and online features which are too under-developed to be popular among the FPS fans. Not surprisingly, the servers are almost deserted already.

    The problems of Rekoil are many, starting with the unbalanced weapon system to the extremely annoying and frequent visual bugs. The respawn system has been miscalculated. Bad sound, animations and poor 3D models come together to provide a badly balanced game.

    Rough around the edges would be an understatement. Sadly, it's just hard to find a reason why you should play Rekoil, given the abundance of choices in its genre.

    Rekoil is an uninspired first-person shooter that fails to deliver on any of its promise.

    Rekoil is a banal title with poorly implemented features, confusing UI and ugly aesthetics. I can appreciate what Plastic Piranha tried to do, but sadly they have failed to deliver on promises of balanced, competitive gameplay – and even on some of the basic core mechanics of a competent FPS.

    Rekoil suffers from game-breaking glitches that range from aggravating to completely bewildering.

    If you want a multiplayer-only shooter without spending $60, there are plenty of options for cheap (Gotham City Impostors) or completely free (Team Fortress 2). Normally, this is the part of the review where I’d reiterate that you should not play Rekoil under any circumstance, but from the abundance of deserted maps I saw, it seems that most gamers have already received that memo.

    actually awesome!
    If you like me been searching for an oldschool styled multi fps? give this game some time and you will be hooked!

    rekoil
    is actually the type of game I have been searching for a long time, ever since the decline of my all time fav multishooter vietcong from around 03 I been missing a "military" styled fps with these kind of large arena maps and the freedom rekoil offers in them, confined yes but not linear and still good size to make the action fast paced, take your time to test out the weaps and learn how to handle them once you do I learned this game is actually awesome!

    game runs good had to turn off a few things getting 60 frames while recording

    server browser is really fast and get to talk all the people
    in that menu before joining a server so u don't have to SHIFT TAB all the time

    the option to make ur own server and make mods with steam works

    game is like between CS and COD without the unlocks perks and mini map which is a plus

    about 40 weapons to choose from even the LMG are pretty good

    a good game for the price

    The core game mechanics are pretty solid lending themselves to fairly fast paced gameplay. Some launch time bugs and minor game balance issues hold it back a little bit, but an emphasis on and actual release of mod tools (something fewer and fewer games are doing these days) gives me some hope for the game. Well worth the $15 price tag in my opinion. Expand

    Ставлю этой игре оценку 2 из 10 . В игре очень плохая графика , но высокие системные требования , много багов и недоработок , ужасный мультиплеер не приятно убивать врагов . Не понимаю как 505 games смогли сделать такое говно . Expand

    Wow, the biggest problem with this game is the poor execution on a PROVEN game type. CS clones are pretty abundant, and hell if you are really interested in trying something new, you could try ones that are much higher rated than this. I'm pretty embarrassed to have spent money on this product. The frame rates drop off and pick up all the time. The game lobby was pretty barren at all times when I played. The handful of players that were on were all disappointed with this game. Expand

    Despite the current five positive user reviews, I'd have to say watching the trailers for this game and live game play on youtube made my wallet recoil back into my pocket. This is a boring FPS. The market is so saturated with FPS, you'd have to really put a ton of work to even attempt at originality for this genre. This game might have done well back in 2000 as competition with Counter Strike, but does not stand a chance in today's market. Expand
