Warsow is set in a futuristic cartoonish world where rocketlauncher-wielding pigs and lasergun-carrying cyberpunks roam the streets. It is a completely free, fast-paced first-person shooter without hard graphical violence. Red stars instead of blood indicate hits and colored cubes replace guts as gib effects.
Speed and movement is what Warsow is all about. Like a true cyberathlete you jump, dash, dodge, and wall-jump your way through the game. Grab power-ups before your enemy does, plant a bomb before anyone sees you, and steal the enemy’s flag before they know what is going on!

I've been playing on and off this game, it has some interesting mechanics, it's not just run n' gun like most FPS, you need to "jump n' gun", this game is a bunny hoppers' paradise. The graphics are easy to the eye and the cel shaded effect is quite good.
I'm a fan of twitch based shooters like Quake, Unreal and Tribes, but this one definitely takes the cake as one of the most twitch based shooters ever made.
It's free, give it a try.

Speaking as a 45yo gamer. this game deserves a five stars rating. Sure I had some shorts breaks, but I play it since it exists.
Considering that a classic game must provide years of fun and challenge, Warsow is a classic in the fast-paced shooters scene, exactly like HOMM3 is a classic of TBS games.
Movement system in Warsow is the key. Once you tasted wall jumps and speed, it'sread more very hard to switch back to any other fps. Race mode in Warsow is a whole game by itself, as much challenging and addictive than a Trackmania.
Warsow isn't only a great indie/garage game, based on a strong and reliable engine, perfectly shaped for eSport. The game also tries to promote as much as possible respect, sportsmanship and self-moderation.
This is why, to conclude, I will quote this little message from the team.
Welcome to Warsow - By Warsow development team
Being one of the fastest eSport shooters on the internet, Warsow is played by some of the most skilled gamers around the world. If you're looking for challenge, you are at the right place. So here's a few tips which will improve your experience. Thanks for your attention and above all, GLHF!
1. Nobody is forced to use these tips. Freedom is what makes the right choices worthy.
2. Hi, GLHF, GG: these never hurt. Without respect or sportsmanship there is no eSport.
3. Learn to lose without becoming frustrated. Each loss is an opportunity to gain knowledge.
