Creating a new game in the first-person shooter genre must be a difficult task. With so many popular titles still being played by a loyal following who happened to find their niche in a certain series, it takes a very unique experience to pull them away. Add to that creating a game in the very crowded military shooter sub-genre and standing out seems impossible. However, the makers behind the popular Half-Life 2 mod Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat recognized the chance to create a new experience with very realistic, intense team-based combat for the hardcore shooter fan. So does Insurgency (New World Interactive 2014/01/22) have what it takes to get recognized in the crowded FPS world?
