A true test of skill vs. skill.
Lots of customization.
Plenty of modes.
Intense, methodical pacing.

The team dynamic and unique squad system inject something different into the mix too, offering match after match of absorbing cooperative killing that proves good looks aren't everything.70

If you’re sick of the run and gun nature of Call of Duty but find the simulation aspects of something like Arma a bit too daunting, Insurgency is the perfect middle ground, and a supremely enjoyable multiplayer experience.80

It’s impressive how “uncool” Insurgency is, in that it ignores the modern shooter trends. It’s slow, and methodical, and there isn’t a grindable unlock or weapon crate to be found.

They duck, they flank you, they kill you, and it's so much fun.

Sure, it doesn’t have the flash that most shooters proudly throw at your face these days, but Insurgency’s quieter, more realistic, and tenser take on modern warfare deserves a look, especially if you’re tired of instant knife kills and exploding buildings.75

I’d still say it’s worth the money-as long as you yearn the days of one-spawn-per-round, fast and furious yore, or desire a more methodical shooter than Battlefield/Call of Duty. If not, you’d best stick to more modern, polished shooters, unless you want to break your keyboard in frustration.65
