a game that teaches me a lot on how armies work and train, show us all the guns, with some real life videos in between them (loading and me playing this game), the cons is it is kinda boring, you might feel interesting when you just started playing but slowly you will get bored of the game, but I somehow learned something from it so overall not a bad experience, wouldn't strongly recommend nor downvote this neither, but I have to choose so I pick ''yes'' for recommending this game.

Very fun fps shooter, let me start of by saying some pros then cons. Some of the pros of the game is that its free to play and very ease to learn. THe cons is that the game does lag from time to time and some of the controlleres are messed up. Overall i rate the game 9/10.

Excellent maps and the gameplay is fun as Hell! I love this game. It has a little bit of a learning curve as the players are very good and gameplay is not forgiving for run and gun low skill players. I will be playing this game forever or until the next version comes out!

It is challenging, hardcore, and nothing makes your adrenaline pump faster than giving medical attention to a buddy in the middle of a firefight. This game is one of the best FPS out there and needs to have better reviews on steam.

While it's no AA2.5, AA:PG takes the franchise into the next generation. Constant content updates and a great community of people make Proving Grounds feel much closer to AA2 than AA3 did, plus it's free.

Despite it's appearance, this game has really good gameplay. It's about as realistic as it's going to get, and I'd definitely reccomend this game to anyone who appreciates first person shooters.

Excellent FTP game without any way to pay for extra goodies such that you can dominate everyone. This game focuses on slower pace, emphasizing tactics and team play over running and gunning. The game is back-to-basics, though, as there are few no non-aesthetic things to unlock, which also means that more experienced players wont be able to unlock items that new players cannot defeat. Instead of focusing on always unlocking the next thing or leveling up, I play just to have fun, which, in my opinion, makes this game more fun than others.

That said, the networking code still needs to be tweaked a bit, as even with low ping i've found that i rubber-band around a lot and get shot around corners.
