    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.

    It's a very tactical team-based shooter. Reminds me of the old school Rainbow Six games without the map waypoint strategy. The strategyIt's a very tactical team-based shooter. Reminds me of the old school Rainbow Six games without the map waypoint strategy. The strategy happens real-time between players over the in-game VOIP system. You die and you're out. Your only chance at a respawn is your team mates making it to the next objective, else you all start at the beginning of the mission again. This forces one to play as a team, extremely carefully and strategically.

    The maps are well designed and very immersive with numerous routes to objectives.

    The AI is incredible! During my first game, I thought I was playing against players who were online. I also love the way the AI increases in number and difficulty as more players join your squad.

    The graphics are good enough and give a great all-round, authentic experience. Night missions are fantastic and very challenging.

    The surround sound with a gaming headset is awesome. One is able to spatially place sounds around one's self while playing, particularly moving enemies.

    This game is a must buy for FPS fans.

Very tactical. I played through early Alpha all the way to release and have been very impressed with the devs and the progression of the game. A ton of thought has gone into the layout and feel of the game. 10 out of 10 from me. I can't stop playing. Expand

    Nice game. I won't write a long review for this game as long as I just want to give a positive review for this game as a feedback for theNice game. I won't write a long review for this game as long as I just want to give a positive review for this game as a feedback for the developers and as a recomandation for new players that are looking for a title on Steam that is a good-balanced team based modern FPS, enough simple to learn basics on how to play for new ones, has a very realistic gameplay and control of the weapons, good sound, nice interface, decent price and decent graphics. Although I think the game is in need of a little bit more optimization for some maps at least and I say this because the base engine for this is Source Engine so I'm sure that this fact can be improved and could be made one of the best features for this game. The game is decent optimized and works well for everyone for now but things could be much better (I don't want to say optimization is a big problem for this at all). Also the game is populated and you can easly find a game/server or people to play with at least for now (Number of concurrent players in-game vary from 1000 to arround 2500+ per day without an event in progress like a discount or something). (Score: 90/100 for me) Expand

    What I like best about Insurgency is its realistic sense of damage taken. Ever played Battlefield and taken a dozen rounds and still lived?What I like best about Insurgency is its realistic sense of damage taken. Ever played Battlefield and taken a dozen rounds and still lived? Here when you get shot, most of the time your dead. If your wounded then things go fuzzy and disorienting for a moment, then your health stays at the damage taken until you get hit again and die. Excellent FPS battling, amazing for an indie game and definitely worth the $15. Would be most excellent with some more maps and vehicles. 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
