I don't think battlefielders sit in a building the whole game.. Maybe the new guys

A great game, perfectly finds its place between the too arcadey and the too hardcore.

I used to play the mod, very easy, every1 just tried to use narrow hallways as chokepoints... and if you didn't, you were laughed at...

It's similar with a few changes to gameplay. Insurgency is slower but not that much slower. Some players seem to play it like it's Battlefield and will sit in a building all round, but most will move around and will go at a reasonable pace. What slows Insurgency down just a little bit is the addition of leaning around walls and you'll find a lot of players doing that. Overall I think it is a mixture of Counter-Strike with Battlefield. It has some Battlfield type game-modes. It has some that are like Counter-Strike. It's like other games but still has it's own unique feel to it. I think it's definitely worth the price as it's a very budget title. If you like Counter-Strike I think you'll like the challenge Insurgency offers.

You described that almost identically to how counter strike is played, is it similar?

Don't treat the game like it's that hard.. Yes the game is hard and yes you will die very fast if you make a mistake, but some players play this game so slowly that they're always going to die. Find that middle ground between rushing and going slow and you'll do pretty well. PS. Also learn what the enemy look like. If you spawn as insurgents the enemy are the professional looking army dudes. If you spawn as professional looking army dudes aim for the balaclavas. It's not hard..

reminds me of COD fun fast paced action in small maps

If only all the players would read it, then it wouldn't be "Shoot your teammatesandsitinacornerthewholeround-simulator 2014."

I played this quite a bit back when it was only a mod, and not an actual game. Really enjoyed it then, might have to check it out now, 'cause this looks pretty good!

I picked this up for the co-op to take a break from Killing Floor. Having fun with it. It's similar to Red Orchestra 2/Rising Storm in gameplay. I have to agree that they did a good job with the shotguns.

And still is if you wan´t to play the graphically and mechanically outdated mod version . . . . Dumbass statement .

@Alecmrhand  The game is influenced by Counter-Strike but the weapons and character movement are far more realistic. It's hard to explain it without actually playing.
