    Insurgency: Sandstorm isn’t the prettiest shooter of 2018, but the places where it excels are the places that matter most. Its gunplay is superb, its arsenal is exemplary, and the maps and modes are serviceable enough to facilitate its memorably frantic and immersive FPS combat.

    Somehow in this most well-travelled of multiplayer FPS paths, Insurgency: Sandstorm feels fresh and innovative at every turn.

    Insurgency: Sandstorm’s slower, more realistic approach likely won’t win over any Call of Duty fans, but then again it’s not really trying to. Sandstorm was made with a very specific type of player in mind, and if you fit that mold you’ll likely get dozens if not hundreds of hours out of the game. And even if you don’t fit that mold completely, there are enough ancillary incentives to make Sandstorm an excellent pick-up-and-play game, especially if you have some friends to recruit.

    Overall, Insurgency: Sandstorm has very few bugs, improved graphical quality, a new game engine, and a large array of weapons to use in battle.

    Insurgency: Sandstorm may be spartan, but its limited package can still deliver memorable moments.

    Insurgency: Sandstorm sees New World Interactive successfully transfer their particular brand of hardcore tactical shooter to a modern game engine with just a few technical hitches, though you’ll need to be content with a familiar Middle Eastern setting and somewhat limited set of maps and game modes.

    Insurgency: Sandstorm is a solid shooter that offers the series’ best intense, tactical thrills, but can’t help but feel behind the times in both theme and looks.

    This is a good example of developers doing their job right when it comes to communication with player base. They listen to the community, theyThis is a good example of developers doing their job right when it comes to communication with player base. They listen to the community, they announce future plans, they make their own game without trying to get more players by introducing stupid battle royales and live update services. Community around the game is awesome and this game is special. Why? You can kill only 1 guy after 10 minutes game, but man... You're going to enjoy it more than ever. Of course you're going to get more kills and practice makes perfect, but I can ensure you, that's the best gaming experience you can get in 2019. Expand
