Insurgency Gameplay Review

I'm playing Insurgency, a first person shooter by New World Interactive.

The online game features several game modes: cooperative play against AI bots, objectives to capture that respawn your teammates, a linear set of locations to attack or defend, and an escort mode. Squads have specified roles with weapon restrictions, and you can customize your loadouts using supply points earned during a single match (thankfully, there are no persistent unlocks unfair to beginning players). The pace is deliberate with no hip aiming, prone shooting, and one-or-two-shot kills. Overall, Insurgency strikes a nice balance between ultra-realism and accessibility, offering nice features and pleasing gameplay for fans of military shooters.
