Insurgency sneers at the garish explosions and comic-book heroics of Call of Duty and Battlefield; much as the popular Half-Life 2 mod that preceded it, it keeps its sights on cold reality.
Insurgency is smartly camped on a spawn point between two of the better online tactical shooters: Counter-Strike and Red Orchestra.
While many are hopeful Titanfall will be the title to answer their prayers for a new brand of FPS, a little known title called “Insurgency” makes its debut as a standalone release to challenge what we expect from the genre.
В 2007-м Insurgency вышла в Steam. Тоже в виде модификации — но такой, на которую оглядываются авторы блокбастеров. Например, в серии Battlefield сошки у пулеметов и возможность вести огонь на подавление появились лишь четыре года спустя.
Like being shot in real life, it takes only a bullet or two to end your life in Insurgency. This makes getting dropped as you sneak out from cover or dart across an alleyway a jarring experience.
