It's my favourite competitive FPS of all time. It's hard, it's rewarding, and it's customizable. To me, that means infinite re-playability.

The best kind of fps. Not like arcade shooters where you just charge in, it high risk, high reward, like in real combat.

Insurgency in a nutshell : HARD but game is good

How does Insurgency reward you for playing tactically?

EskoHC (after 17 days play time)

verry good

ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

its super satisfying to play tactically, when your team (and yourself) have a mic you have a really good chance of winning, and dont worry there's also voice commands.

FIND123 (after 2 days 11 hours play time)

just stay down on the grond

It rewards you with a victory, unless your tactics aren't as good or planned out as the other team.

How much fun are the weapons in Insurgency?

4
CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

The weapons are some of the best I've ever seen in an FPS. The muzzle points realistically, the muzzle flashes look nice, unlike some games, and the modularity makes every gun feel like your own.

EskoHC (after 17 days play time)

197 days ago

verry good

2
ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

super fun, the snipers are really cool because of the double rendering, and the weapons actually feel powerful and not like a nerf gun, like... "If I hold the trigger once, someone will die".

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

Well, they're realistic. 1-3 shots will drop someone. I say 1-3 because body armor, leg shots, and walls can save you from that lethal first shot.

How realistic is Insurgency?

2
ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

438 days ago

realistic enough, although NWI never considered insurgency a "super realistic game"

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

280 days ago

It's not crazy, hyper realistic, but it's realistic. 1-3 shots and you're dead. The HUD is minimal.

EskoHC (after 17 days play time)

197 days ago

verry good

CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

Very realistic compared to many others. A few shots and your're down. A shot with a high cal gun, and your're really down. The muzzle pointing when you wheel around, and the corner duck system add to the highly immersive realism.

How does Insurgency reward teamplay?

EskoHC (after 17 days play time)

verry good

CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

Definitely. You always need someone watching your back, and you theirs.

2
ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

438 days ago

sometimes the matches takes 15-30 minutes, and believe me, there's nothing more rewarding than winning a really close 30 match.

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

280 days ago

It rewards you with victory. It can be the difference between getting shot in the back and winning the round.

a few moths ago they released the alpha of competitive mode, but i havent tried it.

The servers aren't as full as a AAA title, but I've never had problems finding a good server with a few open slots.

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

It's a bit of a struggle to find servers, but when you do, it's fun.

EskoHC (after 17 days play time)

verry good

CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

Pretty active. Lots of PVP players. Not much in chat though, but all things considered, thats like a soldier texting his friends in the middle of a heated battle.

2
ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

438 days ago

really active, i always find full and populated servers, i've never seen a hacker and people are nice

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

280 days ago

Servers are pretty empty, but when you get into a good server, you have lots of fun.

Would you buy at full price or wait for a Insurgency sale?

4
CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

563 days ago

Considering the meager $10 pricetag, I would wait, because cheap games often get great sales for midweek madness, etc.

2
ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

438 days ago

a friend of my bought it for me, but i bought this game for another friend for full price (and sale too for another friend) so yeah, full price is worth it, the game's really cheap only 10 bucks

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

280 days ago

It's worth the full price, but I got it for $2.

Should you buy Insurgency now or wait for it to come out of Early Access?

4
CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

563 days ago

Definitely buy it now. You would never even know it was early access, except for the stream of great new updates flowing in.

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

280 days ago

Buy it now, you'd never notice it was in Early Access except the updates.

Pretty good, and none of the updates hurt the game.

Does Insurgency respect the military?

4
CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

563 days ago

Some people might imagine the game to be about terrorism because of its name, but because of the PVP aspect, it's fairly neutral. However, I've never player singleplayer, but considering all thats going on with ISIS etc, one would hope a game glorifying terrorists wouldn't become as popular as Insurgency has.

2
ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

438 days ago

yeah sure

Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

How good are the graphics in Insurgency?

For a source game, not bad at all. I applaud the devs for it.

2
ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

the graphics are really good for a source game.

4
CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

The graphics are decent texture wise. The terrain textures can be a little muddy however.

How good are the sounds in Insurgency?

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

280 days ago

Extremely immersive, especially if you decide to install sound mods (which mods are fully supported and encouraged!)

4
CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

563 days ago

The sounds are very immersive, and it really feels like your battling someone. The echoed gunshots, explosions, and cries of help make for a fully immersive experience.

2
ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

as the friend below said, the sounds are really immersive. one of the best features.

How does Insurgency run on your PC?

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

Well, before I upgraded my processor, on low it ran at about 40-80FPS. Now it runs at 180+FPS with my new one.

Great, its not a very demanding game.

What do gamers think of Insurgency after many hours of playing

4
CrafterOfWorlds (after 1 day 6 hours play time)

563 days ago

Insurgency is overall a fun game. The risk/reward part isn't for everybody, but as for me, it makes the game as fun as it is.

2
Catlas Se7en (after 1 day 2 hours play time)

280 days ago

I am having lots of fun. It's slow, but the rewards you get and the tension that's built it just amazing.

Why do gamers keep coming back to Insurgency

2
ELGATUNO (after 3 days 2 hours play time)

438 days ago

the gameplay itself.
