I played through the campaign several times when I was young and it was one of my favorites SP games at the time. I also remember playing MP which I really enjoyed. I don't think I have met anyone who havent played through this and called themselves a gamer!

One of the best multiplayer games of the early 2000s. If you want the multiplayer, there is still an active community of players playing Enemy Territory, which was going to be a full release, but was scrapped and released to the public as a stand alone free multiplayer game. No free to play mechanics, just solid multiplayer action. The single player can be great, but I probably wear nostalgic eyes, as I bought and played this game when it first came out in Nov 2001.
