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

    The steep learning curve hides a well-crafted FPS, best suited for those who like tactics and real teamwork more than fragfests.

    Insurgency is a rich and deep tactical first person shooter. Something is still missing but that something isn't gameplay or teamwork.

    I can’t remember when I cursed that much while playing a multiplayer shooter. It is tactically challenging, but suffers from dreary maps and lack of modes.

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

    10 years ago this game would have been lost in a crowd of its brethren – back then, everyone had a game with dusty streets, Saddam’s portraits and AKs. Today, serious first-person shooters like Insurgency are a rare beast, so give it a chance even if it’s far from perfect.

    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.

    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 too, felt like I had to make an account. I'd like to just say buy it, it's just awesome!

    I stopped playing all counter strikes, and most game that I have like BF4 etc... This game reminds me of when I first played a FPS. It is very fresh, it is a lot of fun. My son even stopped playing on his xbox one, and now plays this game more than his xbox! Simply put... learn how to play it, go slow and don't rush...

    The fear of going around corner is scary and the fun of taking a room etc as a team is OMG additive.

    Working with a team is a must! Team work, while taking a room is not like other FPS, you have to do it with skill, you can't just run in and shoot everyone.

    in front of this. This is a verified PTSD Simulator which is extremely intense at times and hilariously funny at others. I think I deserves a much better score the one it has been given overall 10 out of 10 for a game that was pressed on budget.

    Used to play this game when it was just a CS:S mod and it's come a long way since then. It's an unforgiving realistic game that's actually funUsed to play this game when it was just a CS:S mod and it's come a long way since then. It's an unforgiving realistic game that's actually fun to play (unlike the arma series in my opinion). The objectives are clear and games can go from a minute or two (if you are lucky/unlucky) to 20+ minutes. For $15 this game is well worth it. Expand

    Can't tell much about this game because it doesn't work at all. Servers are crashing all the time, so it's not really possible to play fullCan't tell much about this game because it doesn't work at all. Servers are crashing all the time, so it's not really possible to play full round. It looks like early alpha state! Avoid that in all costs for now. Maybe few updates will fix something. Expand
