“I’ll never forget the screaming.” – VG247

Playing a decent amount of the original one I brought this game. Playing 8 hours in total of this video game on Steam, It is already a step up from the last one. Experiencing eight hours though not being very good at it, this sequel delivers on upgraded gameplay features making it very smooth. Where it’s tactical enough that requires time and effort to truly appreciate it.

What I can comment on is the detail of realism the first-person shooter is known for. The atmosphere and graphics layer on the level design that feels real. Movement of fluid animations out through the environment creates many angles in shootouts. And the sound’s tone importantly is perfectly timed.

Finding the balance between fun and realism is a tough nut to crack. Reviews from IGN and PCGamer used such words as “terrifying”, “Intense” and “, you will also put out some heat,”. Describing it as a new perspective then recommending it to at least check it out, it’s online modes could have me playing much more soon.


I never see the issues that a lot of other people describe. It’s a shame because it really is a fun game. I can’t wait for Workshop support and (what’s left of) the community can contribute maps. I enjoy most sessions on this game and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a slower, kind of tactical fps. Content is lacking but it makes up for that in the raw, immersive feeling you get in a good match. – Incrediblegh, Steam Review
