I liked the first insurgency because it felt fairly realistic and the game play was slower then all the other shooters like the COD/Battlefield with the run and gun gameplay. Run and gun is good in those games but its not why I played insurgency. Right now Sandstorm feels like COD with more realistic gun play and that ok if that what your going for but I think there is already enough twitch shooters. I would like a more methodical game with clearing corners and flashing rooms but right now just sprinting in and gunning down the opponents works way better. Here is some examples of that type of play and it kinda ruins the game for me.
Also the 3rd person animations could use a lot work but the kills feel very satisfying so good job on that guys. Keep up the good work guys!
