Top Critic Average
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.
The obsessions with realism and old school action don't come at the cost you might imagine, in this tense and well-designed online shooter.
Tactical shooter fans should find Insurgency's skirmishes riveting, if they can live with some old-school design in regards to respawn times, respawn distance to fire zones, and limited progression
Insurgency: Sandstorm was a game that kind of hit me out of nowhere. I knew it was coming at the end of this year and I had intentions of checking it out, but once I finally sat down with it and had a few rounds with friends, time just slipped away.
Difficult, tough, hardcore. Insurgency: Sandstorm is certainly not a FPS for everyone, but for the hardcore fans of the tactical line i'is a good title.

Thanks to this quite unusual combination of tonal sensitivity, hardcore shooting mechanics and maps full of interesting wrinkles and choke points, I’ve enjoyed Insurgency Sandstorm as much as any multiplayer game released this year.
Compliant as a demanding tactical shooter and its realism, its lack of maps and polish overshadow its playable proposal.

I think I’m having a good time?
Insurgency: Sandstorm is one of the most detail-oriented military shooters available today. With some amazing visual and sound design, it's impressive looking and sounding yet also a fun, tactical and tense shooter for players who really want a challenge.
