To conclude, let me tell you that if you are looking for a tactical shooter title that really presents you with a challenge, this game is for you without a doubt, for others it can be somewhat frustrating at times, but not boring at all. The game tries at all times to make you feel that you are in a real-life scenario, its level of graphics is not cutting-edge, but it does not take away from the fact that it feels very realistic, although it has several flaws in optimization, the ambient sound is excellent and that helps a lot in the development of the different missions, constantly creating tension.

Ready or Not might feel at odds with itself a little from time to time, but it's still a solid if unspectacular squad shooter.

While Ready or Not isn't without its minor bugs and occasional performance issues, it remains a solid game. It offers a distinctive gaming experience that is somewhat rare in today's gaming landscape.

Ready or Not lets us play as the captain of a SWAT team and does so with bewitching skill, captivating you with challenging gameplay and intriguing gunplay. Between single player and online co-op, customization and progression, agent management and nuances galore, you soon find yourself hostage to a brutal FPS that just won't let you go. And that's fine, even if not everything is (yet?) perfect.

Ready or Not is not only a near-perfect video game, but one that advances the medium in a way that no game has before.

Ready or Not is a huge hit and offers a unique experience unlike most FPS games. It allows players new to CQB to enjoy playing with friends.

An intriguing tactical shooter that embraces the precious SWAT legacy, offering a layered and challenging gameplay. It still lacks some polishing and we can't say that every idea got to achieve its full potential, but this is definitely an interesting and compelling gameplay experience for players that love to think before shooting.

Ready or Not successfully imports the moment-to-moment gameplay and intensity of the classic SWAT franchise, but without much innovation and a host of major AI issues this tactical shooter was seemingly not quite ready to breach out of Early Access.

If you're looking for a first-person shooter that would put to use not only your reflexes, but also your brain, like the SWAT series used to, give Ready or Not a chance.

Ready or Not manages to make the difficult job of the SWAT team as close and realistic as possible, and more so than anyone has ever done before. If you've enjoyed the SWAT game series, don't hesitate to buy it. This worthy spiritual successor will delight not only the eyes but also the ears with its attention to detail. There will be slight flaws, such as the autonomy of your colleagues, but you can avoid these with your friends in cooperation. The accuracy of your enemies is also unbalanced, and the full version suffers from poor optimization. Aside from these birth pangs, this is a top-notch affair that shouldn't be missed, and not just by hardcore shooter enthusiasts.

Ready or Not is a remarkable yet hollow achievement that should have aspired to be more than it ended up being: fun and flawed in equal measure.

There's no doubt that Ready or Not is one of the most immersive experiences of 2023. The definitive version of this title developed by VOID Interactive offers realistic gameplay, with a wealth of equipment at our disposal. The missions are varied, while the art direction is completely immersive, especially when played in cooperation with friends. While the artificial intelligence of some opponents still needs fine-tuning, this is a complete game that will keep you busy for hours on end. Nevertheless, I'd recommend playing it with colleagues to get the ultimate experience the developers are aiming for.

Ready or Not is a game that is designed to make players feel uncomfortable. In one way, its tense gunfights and the uncertainty of what's behind the next door achieve that in spades. On the other, the locations and missions will cut a little too close to reality for some.

Ultimately, I get what VOID Interactive was going for with Ready or Not, it just isn’t the game for me. I’m sure that this title will have its fans, and I genuinely hope that they get what they want from it. Lord knows that they have been waiting long enough for the game’s full release. For me though, I lost interest in proceedings very quickly due to a barebones single player story, disappointing visuals, and painfully slow gameplay.
