I loved this game back when it came out in 2009 and continue to love it now in 2016. I've seen many people complaining about Hackers in multiplayer, although there is an unhealthy amount of hackers in game, I never let that ruin my experince. If you notice that you've joined a lobby that doesn't seem "vanilla", simpley quit the lobby and find yourself a new one.
If you're willing to purchase this game, be willing to give it some time, if you enjoyed playing it back when it came out, you would enjoy playing it now. Although there arn't as many people playing the game, it's still enough to fill the lobbies.

No Russian...

If you have no idea what that is about, buy the game. Enjoy one of the most powerful/talked about single player missions ever. Other shooters have tried, (including this studio) but none have quite done it like this.

I'm recommending this because it's a great game, sad to see such a great game starting to die. If this game had an active playerbase, the game would be perfect. Sure there's a thousand plus players online all day but really, you only play with 2 to 4 different lobbies of people. If you don't care about a slightly dead game and enjoy the CoD franchise, I highly recommend you buy this game.

The classic (and problematic) mechanics of Call of Duty of "spawn an infinite number of enemies until you go to this waypoint" are in full effect here. In a game that gives you limited health, limited ammo, and unlimited enemies, it very much forces you into a style of gameplay that may not be one that you actually enjoy.

Awesome game, even though there are some cheaters, but not many cheaters. I would reccomend this game to anyone looking for a shooter on Windows or Mac who has a half-decent computer. For an older game this game is still a good game.
