This game is one of the reasons I do not like the multiplayer focused trend that's cropped up as of late. I can't play this game ever since I got it in a bundle many many many moons ago. It was deader than dead 2 months after release which was when I got it from the bundle. There's no Singleplayer component at all, not even bot matching so this game is useless.

Don't make multiplayer games, when they die they are deader than dead. I can fire up Starflight and still play it since that game was single player. This game you're screwed if ya buy it.

There is no accounting for tastes, but for this game I could not really imagine how someone can appreciate it - and by the emptiness of its servers, I am sure that this is not just my opinion.
Rekoil is a failure in every way you look at it: poor graphics, bad net coding, boring gameplay mechanics, and unaccettable things like fixed respawn points.

0/10

Italian:
De gustibus non est disputandum, ma per questo gioco non riusciamo davvero a pensare in che modo qualcuno possa gradirlo – e in effetti, sembra che nessuno lo gradisca. L’immagine con cui concludiamo l’articolo mostra praticamente l’intera lista dei server e la loro popolazione al momento della recensione, e vi assicuriamo che, anche nei momenti di maggiore affollamento, abbiamo faticato a vedere più di 20 persone online – in totale, non per server.
Rekoil fallisce in ogni suo aspetto, dal concetto di partenza alla realizzazione finale.

Probably one of the worst FPS on Steam. The game combines the weapons of Counter Strike with the speed and graphics of Unreal Tournament 99'. The maps lack creativity and there's not a single thing that makes this game even remotely interesting. Obviously there's no one playing anymore, especially at the outrageous price of 14 euro. The devs have completely abandonded this project not even trying to sell it at a lower price (which should be 1 euro or less).

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.
PLEASE HEED MY WARNING.
I saw a video of this; it looked so cool. A good Call of Duty styled game mixed with Quake that wasn't $90.
Bought it. Launched it, excited.
There was literally nobody playing on the servers. Literally. Nobody.
I read some stuff on the community discussions: everyone's getting this. Literally nobody could play.
Read some reviews; every single review was 3/10 or under. The highest I've ever seen was 4/10.
I ran an offline server (no bots, mind you) and got GOD AWFUL frame rate. It was seriously the worst frame rate I have ever gotten on a game.
I set the graphics to a bare minimum - 20 FPS at best.
This seriously depressed me. I wasted money on a 'Walk around, shoot and reload in an empty map' simulator. I am shamed to own this piece of laggy, useless ♥♥♥♥.
It looked so fun. It looked genuinely good.
Jesus christ.
I need to re-evaluate my life decisions.

-2/10.
I am not sarcastic.

It was important to give this game a fair review on launch. I was not thrilled with the beta. I really hoped they had used the extra time to fix the game. All they did was hope the negative publicity would go away. Most games have a big boost of players at launch and then trickle off. This just launched and there is a total of 60 players online. YES, I said 60! not 6000 but 60!!!!!!

The game plays as though it was made on a $30 game program. It is stripped down of all real FPS components. There is no teamwork , skill, or dedication required. It is billed as a "Back To Basics" shooter. That is true if B2B is the first Doom. If you want B2B go play Insurgency. This is only B2B in the graphics and playability. You can have a retro game that still uses modern technologies.

I feel this was lost in translation and lacks anything that makes this enjoyable. The movement and combat mechanics are just bad. This is a multiplayer only game and there just isn't anyone online to play with.

I think this game has a lot of promise. but FOV at 110.. is not 110 fov, keybinds dont work, the game constantly crashes, its very unoptimized. My rig struggles to get 50 FPS (this is on bare min settings) if i try and run OBS or x-split to stream i get 1-5 FPS. If i try to use their built in streaming use, i jump to 500 ping. i cant have anything open or else the frame rate tanks, The hit detection is really random, some times its beatiful other times, ill hit a guy in the head four times standing still and it still wont register. the movement is trash, coming from a background of quake, cod 4 promod the movement feels even more clunky to me than CS:GO (i really hate CS:GO as compared to CS:S or even CS: 1.6) their is weird sort of mouse acceleration i ran a program and on my second monitor it picked up random amount of mouse acceleration. it didn't seem to have much of a patern. This is in alpha stages at best. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DELAY THIS ♥♥♥♥ING GAME test it more. please fix these issues. give the beta at least 2 months, not 2 weeks. there is no way this game will be ready in time for launch. I have more complaints i just cant think of them off the top of my head.

Currently this game is NOT READY. They claim it to be open beta, but it still feels like it's too early to be even that. The keybinds don't actually work making this unplayable for some (myself included,) and some of the binds are not what they say they actually are (ex. grenade states it is bound to 4, but really it's 3.)

The recoil on the weapons needs a second look I feel, as some of them shouldn't have as much as others. Nothing specific, but the Famas for instance barely has any kick, but in this game it feels like you're trying to hold down a man twice your size.

Though as this is only a 'beta' I can give this title a little more time to grow before I'm completely honest. The only way I can see Rekoil getting better is if the developers actually look to their community for improvements, even on the little things.

Total rubbish. I payed 10 dollars for a game that at best doesnt crash when booted,at avreage crashes at lobby and has 10 servers who have a very presistent amount of 0 players.
If you put a game on a sale for 3 dollars less than a two months after its release shows how it sold before that.
