So I ve played a quadrillion hours Insurgency. Had my times where I just sucked, had my times where I clutched 4vs1. Anyway, what I am getting at is: My name was known on our server and I "felt the game" without thinking.
Now I was very eager to see the new Insurgency: Sandstorm, and I want to be honest: It does not feel like the old Insurgency to me. I do not know why, but movement speed, slow reload animations, the way the game responds to mouse input, the way your body moves when you sprint. The look of the lighting on the map. The way the models look (when I was greeted by that seniore in the first match, I thought this model looks like a 10y old game). Also I feel the size of the guns in your first person view seems different. And the post effectish "smoothness" which goes away when you are under fire. Makes the game not "sharp" but muddy.
I do not get the same vibes I got from the original Insurgency. I mean, sure, close, but it does not feel like I am returning to the same game "feeling".
Is it just me???
