This has to be one of the most experienced team that made this MOD.
Words are insufficient - people just need to play this! As simple as that!
Music is great and brings the atmosphere up, new ideas that do not use the lantern, new monsters that are really tricky at times...
It's hard to compare Insurgency to any game. To put it easily, it feels like Counter Strike and Red Orchestra had a baby, that developed into something beautiful.
Insurgency is a hardcore first-person tactical shooter, focusing on tactics, teamwork and skill. It features free-aim and no crosshairs (thank God), as well as a punishing damage model, long snap-to-aim time and relatively long reload times (compared to other modern FPSes). The game puts you in place as a security squad/insurgent group in the Middle East areas, trapped together in a firefight in distinctive and well-planned maps, both during day and night. Every soldier has 10 squad points they can spend on different weapons and attachments, depending on your selected role. This makes it fair, and you find yourself often juggling between the best setup for the situation. Each side has their own weapons (insurgents have the AK family, while the security team the M16-series).
This is a great game to play with friends, seeing how teamwork is key. It also brings many fun moments to share with others.
As the game is based on the Source engine, its mechanics are as well. Movement is fluid, weapons use hitscan (no physical bullets), and there's no first person body (you can't see your legs), as well as Source's camera functions, which can bring the usual confusion of how much your body is actually visible. The weapons do however react with walls, making you unable to aim down if the wall is closer than the tip of the weapon. The scopes are also "3D", or optical, meaning the only magnified area is within the scope itself. Scope glares are gorgeous in first person.
The game feels very fair. When you die you know it's your own fault, and you have no one else to blame than yourself (unless it's an internet-based fault). All you can do is to try again and learn from your mistakes. This gives the game a steep learning curve, but a very satisfying experience when you are able to do everything right. You'll feel proud.
Weapons in the game have very heavy recoil. This is awesome, since it gives selective fire a purpose, and makes the weapons hard to master. For this reason, bring a good mouse with good mouse space when you play. All reloads are magazine-based instead of the normal reload-by-bulletcount method. Reloading after shooting half of the magazine will leave half the magazine's content left when you get to it (the game conveniently orders your magazines by ammo count).
-Tactical and serious
-Punishing damage model
-Fluid and fair
-"Proper" weapon mechanics
-Enjoyable graphics and good maps
-No first person model
-Steep learning curve
Insurgency is in overall an awesome game, developed by a group of people who provide free updates constantly, mature players, and awesome modders who truly brings the game variety via the workshop.
I recommend the game to anyone who enjoy tactical shooters, or simply want to try a solid shooter with an aspiring future. Great fun.
Insurgency scores a clear 10 from me.
This is the only game i play now, this is amazing! its highly addictive and so much fun to play 10/10 would play forever and ever. This game has had so much development in the short year it has been around. with new updates every week? how could you go wrong with it!
This is one of the best Half-Life mods ever! This mod is set in the Vietnam War, and it's kinda similar to the movie "Apocalypse Now". However, it becomes much different when you will see the first zombies. Your mission is to assassinate an US Army officer called Kurtz, however you will soon notice that there is a much more complicated plot in the game. This is a total conversion: the mod uses very few resources from the original Half-Life, it has many new sounds, textures and models. You can fight your enemies with an authentic collection of Vietnam War weaponry, like the M16 and the AK-47. And you will also use a Chainsaw (excellent against zombies)! You will fight US Army Soldiers (but you will frequently encounter friendly US Mike Force soldiers), Vietcongs and zombies. You will also have a sidekick called Barney, he's really similar to the original security guard but now he packs a powerful Colt .45 with a near-perfet aim! He will be needed for special tasks like operating radios and driving vehicles. While transiting from one chapter to another, you will stay in a vehicle while Barney drives it to another location. You can order your troops to do something with some neat voice commands. Unfortunately the friendly AI can be quite dumb and can't follow you properly! You will also encounter a few medics during the game, they can be extremely useful for healing you and other soldiers especially at higher difficulty levels. The locations are really amazing, you will fight in US Military bases, vietnamese cities and villages in the jungles of Vietnam. In many maps you will encounter civilians but they are just there for scenery! You can read many documents (high entertaining value), collect items to perform some special actions although the puzzles can be VERY confusing because of the design of the maps (you will do lots of backtracking). Overall, an absolute play. Also check the remake called Heart of Evil Napalm Edition (but be sure to play this one first!).
I've played this game over 1000 hours and i can tell you that this game is the most amazing First Person Shooter EVER MADE !!!
I have played many games vs bots 88,688 kills of bots made by myself and cause of my team helping me in coop maps, this game (insurgency) could be easily top 10 give it SOME HEART! And love what they're doing with the game in the near future.
Space engineers is a great game even though it does have its ups and down I really enjoy it with the destruction physics to unlimited building. Something even better is exploration mode is comming soon! This will add procedural generated asteroids and community made ships into the game to explore. It's a great game that you should try.
I now have over 2000 hours playing this game. I have had to start over many times, either because of griefers from other servers or my own desire to start again, I still keep coming back. Still in alpha, the game is updated every and I mean EVERY Thursday!
Recent bug fix updates have improved the game greatly and the modding community have put so much of their own fantastic work into the game.
I have been calling this game the "Minecraft" of the new era. Only with to times the graphics and it's is in space! What more could you ask for!
