Basically CS but you can aimdown sights, prone, lean, and there is no 'Skin Insanity' or Russians spamming "RASH BEE ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥♥". Over all a good, realistic and tactical shooter. If you want something even more hardcore, go play Insurgency. Oh and its F2P which means you dont lose anything by playing this game except for time, but who cares about that...

Out of all the games I played, I would give AA: Proving Grounds an 10/10. One of the most realistic FPS shooters, and its free! The community is great and you don't have the normal toxic 11 year old Call of Duty player getting mad at you for messing up. Overall one of my favorite games I have ever played.

The gist: This game is one of the more solid FPS games out there. It has a great core without the cluttered micro-transactions, flair, or disparity between players. Best of all: it's FREE.

I grew up on games like Unreal Tournament, Half Life, Quake(some), Halo, and the like. I started playing America's Army 2 in my teens and it(the AA series) will likely always remain in my top 5 of games that is solid and replayable.

The game's core is that it's more tactical than run 'n' gun. This core also attracts a more mature audience which I know shies older gamers away at times. The game is just fundamentally great and isn't clouded by add-ons, micro-transactions, or the necessity to level to better than others.

This is a great game for FPS{first person shooter},,, I consider this game a step up from the old , XP DOD, COD, and MOHAA games,,while I did like playing those games offline the online versions got to be spawn killfest, spawn and die,,,this game AA Provinhg Grounds is great,,,I am better on defence than on the attack mode ,I dont have the reflexes,and target ID resp[onse time for the attck mode...great maps,,,

This game is like if Arma, COD, and Battlefield had a baby. It puts a nice spin on modern FPS games, but doesen't have the replay value of COD of Battlefield. The maps are pretty good, and the audio is great. The weapons feel good, and the graphics are decent. Overall, a 7/10

it's fun but lag spikes and poor hit detection is real, in addition some crazy bugs like game crashing when changing options or not being able to pick a team are pretty annoying, it could also use wider gun variety
