Hey Poor Player's Jonathan Trussler writes: "Have you ever wanted to experience the life of an embattled solider having to clean up the mess of one of George Bush’s ill-fated oil wars? Well, if you do, you’re out of luck! If you just want an abbreviated version of that experience focusing on the battles, you might enjoy Insurgency: a multiplayer team-focused FPS set during the occupation of Iraq. Insurgency’s selling point is its more down to earth depiction of the well worn trope of being a soldier who shoots dudes in wars. Even in the game’s only single-player mission – the tutorial that introduces you to the basics – your rugged sergeant is quick to inform you: “Stand back, this ain’t the movies, those C4 make a big bang” as if to underline the focus on realism. It’s pretty silly for Insurgency to advertise itself as being realistic though, when it’s about two precisely balanced teams standing on equidistant glowing objective letters to capture them."
