Multiplayer Game Modes:
Push --- Three territorial objectives must be captured by the attacking team in sequential order. For each objective captured, they gain more reinforcement and time to attack the next. Defenders have a finite amount of reinforcements and must use each wisely. Once the third objective is captured by the attackers, a fourth cache objective must be destroyed, while the defenders have only one life to make a last stand.
Firefight --- Three territorial objectives, one for each team, plus one neutral. Each team only respawns when they secure an objective. Secure all objectives or eliminate all enemy to win. Every life counts, making this a very suspenseful experience dependent upon teamwork.
Skirmish --- In addition to three territorial objectives, each team has a supply cache to protect. Teams gain extra reinforcement waves until their cache is destroyed. When both teams have lost their caches and all reinforcement waves, it becomes a Firefight match.
Occupy --- There is one central territorial objective in the area. The team that controls it does not deplete reinforcement waves. This gameplay in this mode is reminiscent to King of the Hill or "tug of war".
Ambush --- A high value target ("HVT") must be escorted to an extraction point. It's one team's goal to make this happen and it's the other team's goal to stop this from happening at all costs. The HVT is only armed with a silenced pistol, but can pick up a weapon from a fallen enemy or teammate.
Strike --- Three weapon caches must be destroyed by the attacking team to achieve victory. Destroying a cache earns the attackers more reinforcements and time on the clock. The defenders must retain at least one cache from being destroyed and eliminate the enemy team once their reinforcements run dry.
Infiltrate --- The standard Capture the Flag mode, but with a twist. Your team's goal is to take the enemy's intel and return it to your base. Your team will only gain reinforcements when someone takes the enemy's intel, or when an enemy stealing your team's intel is neutralized. This mode requires very strong team coordination and strategy.
Flashpoint --- One neutral territorial objective and two caches on each side. The goal is to secure the entire area, controlling the middle and destroying the enemy's caches. Your team respawns when they secure the territorial objective or destroy a cache objective.
Elimination --- In this single life mode, attackers must destroy one of two weapon caches, or eliminate the enemy team within the time limit. Defenders must kill all attackers.
Cooperative Game Modes:
Checkpoint --- Complete mission-based objectives in sequence against AI enemy. Each successful objective will respawn anyone who was eliminated along the way.
Hunt --- Insurgents are dispersed in the environment, and your squad must eliminate all targets while locating and destroying the weapons cache. High on tension, with only one-life.
Survival --- Play as Insurgents and fight against endless waves of progressively difficult Security enemies on night themed maps. Reaching safehouse objectives with your team earns you supply to purchase better weapons and spawns any dead teammates.
Outpost --- Defend your supply cache against endless waves of enemy trying to destroy it. Each successfully defended wave will bring in reinforcements of your teammates.
Conquer --- Capture the objectives in the area and defend them from enemy trying to retake them. Destroy enemy weapon caches to thin out their numbers.

Insurgency is an FPS with a bit more realism than most games but a more fast paced and arcade like feeling than something like the ARMA series, giving you a good middle ground. The game has larger maps with a variety of choke points and the game requires more tactical play instead of running around as a lone wolf. The game runs well and doesn't need a powerful PC to play. Free content has been added to the game throughout its life giving you a large amount of content for the low price.
I got this game on sale, and I have to say even if it wasn't on sale this game would still be worth it! This game really is great for team play and tactics, it is very hard to "lone wolf" in this game without getting killed by the enemy who is working together. I love this game and if you are into realistic, team-based, shooters this one is definitely for you!
absolutely among the best tactical shooters on the market today. This game is perhaps unmatched in terms of sound design, with very real-world accurate weapons. The maps are large, with a variety of approaches and choke points. Stealth is possible and incredibly rewarding, but difficult. The majority of people will be either sniping or using assault rifles. Moving slowly across the map is encouraged, but in some cases a fast push is necessary. This is a game that will reward tactical play. The game looks okay, but really, the effects are incredible - especially considering how well it runs. I have encountered a few visual bugs - but in 50 hours, and hundreds of matches played, really very few. In terms of cheaters, I have encountered only one. There seems to be a very robust anti-cheat system in play. The Devs play the game with the community, and they clearly care about the experience. It would be nice to have a few more options while looking for a server - as there appears to be a lot of options as to how 'hardcore' each server is. For instance, some servers have a 'kill count', which some believe detracts from the core experience. It would be nice to filter these out. Overall, the game looks and feels incredible, and the few flaws it has barely detract from the overall experience.
If you are looking for a goodish, cheap tactical shooter then yes. This is the one. Pros- Great damage model, one to troublers kills, push to talk, night versions of maps, on point gun customization, similar to the Ghost Recon series, but a little less detailed. Also, the movement feels fluid and easy to grasp, and scopes zoom in only within the radius of an optic, which is my personal favorite. Cons- bugs, it's honestly like you're in the Amazon or something, because every time I play a consecutive game it crashes. Meaning I play a game, vote for next map, crash. It's like you're trying to trying drive in GTA, crash crash crash. Oh, also, crash. Also, with the character models, if someone holds a hard angle in you, it's possible you may not even see them shooting at you. Oh and the weapon sounds are puuuuurfect, like it's almost better than choccy milk, or if you don't appreciate memes, the sound of eggs sizzling on a pan in the morn. So it give it a verdict of 10/10, but insurgency, unlike the choccy milk, would get 8/10. The game mechanics are great, and the annoying bugs are a little less great. Buy it
