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.

This game looks nice and all, but seriously: don't even waste your time getting into the beta. Around 20 ppl playing, and I will laugh at you if you pay for this POS. I was watching this game(in articles) and had some really high hopes. Let Down. Seriously I wouldn't play this if it was F2P and they paid me to play it.

Bought this expecting to play a decent game then I just relized i had bought absolute dog paste like grinded down dog poop particles. I want this game to be good so bad but theres a few things that need to be changed. Im going to write the list down and email it to the developers becuase this game is a let down. Would i recommend this now Hell No . But give it a while and if they polish up like the whole game it has a possibility to be good. If you want to buy a game with terrible spawns, glitchy game models and sub par shooting this is the game for you. If you like good games dont buy this
