THE GOOD: -- Totally free, standalone, downloadable first person shooter. -- Popular, thriving online community nearly 4 years after original release date. -- Multitude of servers and modifications available make for enormous amount of choices of gameplay when looking for matches. -- Clan support and outstanding tournament/ladder/league play support.
THE BAD: -- Cheaters are ever present but this can be said for any online shooter. -- Other than that, no cons are unbearable.

THE BAD: Only the lamers online. blah to them.
