About This Game

Tactical Intervention is a Free to Play tactical FPS with unique mechanics. Drive, bomb, rappel and shoot your way through eleven high octane levels.

Command attack dogs, deploy breaching charges, perform drive-bys and control hostage situations!

From the brilliant mind of Minh “Gooseman” Le, the co-creator of the seminal team-based FPS Counter-Strike, comes its spiritual successor, Tactical Intervention. Take your role as either terrorist or counter-terrorist and confront opponents in fierce and frantic combat over a variety of high energy maps wielding authentic real world weapons, from the classic P90 to the terrorist favourite, the AK47.

Featuring unique games modes and mechanics not seen in other shooters, Tactical Intervention allows you to experience first person combat from an entirely new perspective. Hijack a car to take part in an intense highway chase; unload your high-powered Gabard shotgun at the VIP while leaning out the window, as your opponents scramble to protect him. Take out the covering helicopter with a well-placed shot from an RPG while you handbrake turn to broadside your target.

Experience the thrill of rappelling down a building, kicking in the plexiglass, hurling a flash bang, grabbing a hostage as a human shield, and dealing some rapid fire death with your Uzi. Use riot shields to defend yourself against enemy forces and then command your vicious German Shepard attack dog to savage terrorists out of line of sight. Dive to cover and lay down suppressing fire with your Aug assault rifle so your teammates can liberate the terrified hostages.

Combining the strategic elements of modern team-based shooters with the pure thrill of the original Counter Strike series, Tactical Intervention brings a whole new level of gaming to the battlefield and lets players feel the true intensity of battle. With a huge variety of weapons, special equips, authentic combat uniforms and paths to victory, Tactical Intervention truly is the next evolution in team-based combat. So grab your P90, slap on a red-dot, twist in a silencer and dive into TI!

Tactical Intervention.
Not tactical at all.


So this game is... a bit weird. It's not good... but it ain't bad either. It DOES have some potential to be a good game, but... it's not going that way... much.

And it's not tactical at all, it's a free-to-play "Counter-Strike" ... "styled" ... game... ? It's not a slow game, it's the opposite actually - it's a bit fast, but not CoD fast or Quake fast.

Right off the bat I'll say that the shooting is really weird, it's jerky and awkward to get used to. The network part of the game is horrendously bad, and there's some optimisation issues (it's Source engine for ♥♥♥♥'s sake, how can you mess up that?)

But it's still VERY ♥♥♥♥ING FUN
The best mode in the entire game must be the VIP Car Escort, which is a car chase on a few maps (so far 3 exist), which are pretty big, and you just have to drive forward.
Driving isn't as simple as it sounds, the handling is unlike any other game with cars. It's a bit hard to learn but it comes fast.
So while you drive, you occassionally stumble upon green boxes, which can heal you, your passengers, repair your ride a bit (dunno about that one actually) and have a surprise weapon like a grenade launcher or RPG which is a round changer most of the time.

It's unfriendly to new people, because there's a bunch of menu options and sections where you just get confused how everything works, and most of the mechanics are explained through VERY simple tips during the loading screen. The best way to learn is in practice.


Get a friend or two or a pack of them, grab some alcohol (optional), go with your friends on one team and play the game. It can be enjoyable.

tl;dr:
+- weird shooting, can ♥♥♥♥ you off
+- weird driving, makes you laugh sometimes
+ car chase best mode
- borderline if not crossing the pay2win line
- unbalanced weaponry
--- heavy armor ffs nerf that ♥♥♥♥
++ awkwardly fun with friends
+++ gore
- network stuff

All in all, it's one of those games that it's so BROKEN, it's HILARIOUS. I mean like, bodies flying, cars crashing, being a crab, it's just too amazing. It's just one of those games that's broken, but funny in every way.

Stop thinking this is pay-to-win, because it isn't. This may be a cheap Counter-Strike clone, but the additional features are what keep me coming back for more. With dogs, car chases, VIP escorts, hostage/civilian rescue/capture and plenty of weapons to keep me interested. While you can pay for guns with real money, there's also the option of paying with Game Points (GP) which doesn't cost you a penny of real cash, just time spent playing the game. This game may require some grinding but once you get past that stage, there's nothing but good times to be had.

I must say though, I do wish more Europeans played as the American servers can be a bit laggy which of course restricts gameplay. Just give it a go, it's free-to-play and if you do decide to invest some cash into the game, atleast you'll know it's not as much as you'd spend on those damn CS:GO chests.

It's the most mindless game ever, I just pick up the as50 and it becomes a point and click adventure where the only riddle to solve is how to use gun on man.

Automatic weapons are easily controlled even with this "massive" recoil and you can basically hitscan with the damn things

the shotgun is the most rando crap ever, it either one shots someone from novo to elektro or it does 2 damage

the revovler sucks, any pistol that shoots slow sucks, any pistol with < 10 rounds in the mag sucks, pistols suck in general

the knife is dumb, if swings too fast for how much damage it does, theres probably a legit sanic the hordge herg playstyle where you just Dunkey roll and slash at people

grenades are dumb, they do a billion damage and knock people over, then I just clean them up with anything, even a dumbo pistol

propane tanks are literally weaker than the pistol, it explodes on their face doing no damage

snipers are imba, even not using the as50 I can just one shot every nerd in the entire server headshots are so ezpz

no prone is dumbo city

armor is dumbo, having something that makes you resistent to bullets is dumb, its stupid, and its dumb

the mall level is dumb, people kept trying to sell me shoes and cardigans

the worst part is I STILL spent three hours playing this

this isn't pay2win at all either, I utterly dominated games without spending a single dime on it
Not a damn one, seriously, look at my change jar. People saying its p2w are just terrible at video games and need to stick to viva pinata

as50 / 10

I liked the trailer, but the first time I played it. Just got me downtrodden.

I didnt quite enjoy the game. I would prefer counter strike more than this. Sure the running, the rappeling, the riding on vehicles are fun, but hell was it buggy. (Did I mention that the driving physics will wish you never took a seat in the game because you know teams will kick you out for it?). Plus the aiming was preposterous.

The game was like an upgrade of the oldest CS, but lazily done and gave up on..
The maps were good and the controls were nice. But the gameplay just makes it seem bad. Guns are ridiculously expensive and having them expire is even more so. I wouldn't even dare buy one gun which I can permantly have for how much it is.

Not a suggested game for players with bad internet.

This is the best thing ever! Ever senice I was shown this game at my Weight Watchers meeting I could not get off it! I lost 30 pounds in a week beacuse of this game! You ask how did I do it? Well with all the rolling, screen shaking, and high speed chases it gives me awful motion sickness, and I throw up everything I ate up to 5 hours earlier! I can eat huge meals and go play this game for an hour or two! 10/10~Weight Watchers!
