The military shooter has been one of the mainstays in my gaming rotation for many years and each iteration has its charms and draws. Some take you through time to wars of a bygone era while others plant you solidly in modern warfare. Insurgency Sandstorm is the sequel to the original and recreates modern warfare with an assault on the senses. Everything from the authentic gunfire to the soldier chatter and even the voice chat effects serve to help recreate the sounds and intensity of the modern day battlefield. You learn quickly that cover is life and teamwork is the only means by which victory can be accomplished.
