    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.

    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.

    Realistic, comfortable gameplay, hardcore, teamwork requiered. FUN

    Maybe the thing I like the most from this game is the fact that there are no vehicles-rush (BF); nor akimbos (CoD); nor kill-streaks, nor battlepacks, nor ranking up or anything like so. Even when you are n00b you have the same weps that the most hardcore players, which means fun for everyone.

    Yes! Fun, I know that in other shooters fun means instant respawn and doing a session of sprinting around the whole map, but the game is so well designed that you are afraid of taking the bomb when you are at the next room, you are carefull of every sound, to every movement, because if you don`t you will be death soon. This game is incredible. It realy takes you inside.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Really good tactic shooter game. You can see this game as a perfect son of ARMA and CS GO. It's difficult but at level that makes you addicted to it (like darksouls difficult) because of its realistic
    For 10$ you can own a game that surpass 90% AAA shooting right now, contain 149 maps with 5 modes and full support of mods.
    If you have friends, tell them to buy this too because the COOP mode is really fun.

    Insurgency is a realistic-tactical shooter. This is a merciless experience for players who are careless and ignore the importance of teamwork.Insurgency is a realistic-tactical shooter. This is a merciless experience for players who are careless and ignore the importance of teamwork. In my first hour experience I felt like a war reporter
    on the most dangerous front of Iraq. Bullets flew over my head, my teammates died while I was hiding behind covers, tried to stay alive between strong explosions, heard unending gunfire, used every piece of cover to save my life and died a lot. After two hours I was able to lurk dark corners of the map, leaned behind covers to shot my enemy before he shot me and tricked the enemy in anyway I can. But it's very hard to master this game. You need your teammates to succeed on your missions. Moving together, using formations correctly, and maintaining 360 degree security for the team are vital parts of success. Getting familiar with game maps is another important factor for success. You have to know where your weak points are while you're attacking or defending objective zones. Experienced lone wolves infiltrate behind enemy lines to hunt their targets one by one. So if you want to be successful explore maps as quickly as possible. Shooting mechanics feels good and realistic. Maps designs are very good and well optimized to balance tension between teams. Graphics can't compete with its counterparts but they are decent. Sound effects are great. If developers continue like this, this can be the best FPS game of all the time in the coming years.

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
