While it may seem like Insurgency: Sandstorm has built-in anchors, it might be the best type of FPS for how it creatively builds on top of hurdles. There are no shortcuts to the objective, but scores of players would prefer it that way. To survive, you must be adept at the FPS genre. To thrive, you must be studious at the briefing and in the field. There’s nothing quite like a successful mission borne of organization and good teamwork. That’s why triumph on the battlefield alongside your fellow squadmates makes all the challenges seem worth the hassle. Hell, sometimes there’s no fun without it.

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.

‎Insurgency: Sandstorm is probably‎‎ one of the best multiplayer-focused tactical FPS‎‎ that have come to market in recent years. If you are tired of the same repetitive proposal and looking for something that really immerses you in a real conflict, this is your game, and that is that very few titles achieve the immersion and realism achieved by Insurgency: Sandstorm.‎

Throw into a giant pot the lightning-fast time to kill of CS:GO, the impetuosity and violence of the fights of Rainbow Six Siege, mix it all with the realism of works like Weapon and you will get Insurgency: Sandstorm, the new tactical FPS developed by New World Interactive and distributed by Focus Home.

Insurgency: Sandstorm is a solid shooter that offers the series' best intense, tactical thrills, but can't help but feel behind the times in both theme and looks.

Insurgency: Sandstorm's slower, more realistic approach likely won't win over any Call of Duty fans, but then again it's not really trying to. Sandstorm was made with a very specific type of player in mind, and if you fit that mold you'll likely get dozens if not hundreds of hours out of the game. And even if you don't fit that mold completely, there are enough ancillary incentives to make Sandstorm an excellent pick-up-and-play game, especially if you have some friends to recruit.

Overall, Insurgency Sandstorm is a worthy successor, and a great option if you're looking for a more thoughtful shooter. The progression system doesn't interfere with the gameplay but gives you some nice little rewards to help keep people invested. The biggest weakness is the lack of singleplayer content, but if you've got an interest in modern shooters and a few friends to bring along then Insurgency Sandstorm is a pretty good choice of shooter. Insurgency Sandstorm is available now on Steam for with console versions planned to be released next year.

Some nagging issues prevent Insurgency: Sandstorm from earning a pristine Medal of Honor, but it's an easy shoe-in for a Silver Star

It still comes with a recommendation from me, just be aware of the many performance issues and glaring bugs that can pull you out of the experience.

‎Insurgency: Sandstorm is finally coming to Xbox. It is a fresh proposal for fans of multiplayer shooters with a realistic and tactical aspect. And the adaptation to console meets what was expected at a technical level, with good performance, which was what we were most concerned about‎.

Overall, I enjoyed my time with Insurgency: Sandstorm, and whenever the mood strikes for an intense, realistic shooter, this will probably be my game of choice. It isn't as punishing as something like Arma, but it still offers fantastic audio and a brutal TTK that forces the player to slow down, think about their steps, and use all the tools the game puts at their disposal. One can't go into this game hoping for a sleek experience. The technical side of the game is just as gritty as its combat. In the heat of an intense battle, your processor will also put out some heat. Hopefully, New World Interactive can devote some time toward the technical side of things and put as much care into that as it did the audio and gameplay. If the developer can fix those issues, Insurgency: Sandstorm would be one of the better competitive shooters available on Steam.

Insurgency: Sandstorm needs a bit more polish to be the outstanding sequel it should be but if you overlook the issues you'll find a fairly enjoyable multiplayer title.

If you are looking for an online multiplayer shooter that is much more realistic than Call of Duty or Battlefield, but is not pain-in-the-ass realistic like Arma series, then Insurgency: Sandstorm is your choice; and with the promise of constant support and free DLCs from the developers, I expect that Insurgency will soon become a big player in this genre.

Insurgency: Sandstorm sees New World Interactive successfully transfer their particular brand of hardcore tactical shooter to a modern game engine with just a few technical hitches, though you'll need to be content with a familiar Middle Eastern setting and somewhat limited set of maps and game modes.
