This game had me there for a second.. The controls are swift and the enemies are fast; so are their bullets.
Basically, "Recruits" is a lot like "Cannon Fodder", but a lot more unforgiving. You have to learn to aim fast and steady while outrunning enemy bullets.
Besides some basic gameplay elements which I think are kind of missing, the foundation is solid and deadly.
I think it could be best described as a mix between "Cannon Fodder" and a breeze of "Soldiers - Heroes of World War 2" and a lot like "Running with Rifles" with nice graphics; because it's fast, easy to learn and hard to master.
Although the game can be prety entertaining it can also be very frustrating. For instance when you're playing a jungle map you can't rotate the camera to look around. It seems to be fixed at a certain angle. (Facing North). Maybe I overlooked something, but if they don't fix this, well, that could be a major killer, because that small feature made sure that I died many times.
Also, some things seem to be just scripted. Like: approach enemy, shoot, he throws grenade, even if he's dead already. Seems a bit off to me and kills the stealth factor.
But, due to the fact that this is an early access game, I have high hopes for it.
So far what I've seen is good and solid.
