Ironsight is a free, sci-fi, multiplayer, military shooter for Windows 7, 8, and 10, set in the near future destroyed by a natural disaster. As is usually the case when a catastrophe like this happens, the human race is divided into two factions that are constantly fighting for the few remaining resources, including a new source of energy, called Trinitium.
Ironsight is a game that has been described as a free Call of Duty and it’s not hard to see why this is so. From how you control your character to the weapons you use and the way you play, everything is almost the same. This is not a criticism, but a fact that developers are also proud of. One thing that sets it apart from Call from Duty is the hardware requirements. This game will work without problems on older computers.
Graphics and presentation
At first glance, you can easily think that this is a game for the last generation of consoles. The graphics are generally very good, especially for a game that is free. The weapons, drones, and maps you play on are beautiful with lots of colors and details.
The game runs on its own Iron Engine and developers should be proud of the work they have done. The optimization is phenomenal and on our decent, but not a gaming computer, on which we tested this game, with the graphics settings boosted to the maximum, the game ran at a stable 100 FPS. This also applies to weaker computers, so the game will work on them without any problems.
Ironsight is an online multiplayer PVP game. You can also play it in single-player mode, but here you will play online modes, only against AI opponents, instead of real people.
Game modes are standard for this type of game. We have Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, Resource Takeover, and Secure Point. Secure Point is a mode used for ranked matches and it is the main game mode, although we liked Team Deathmatch the most.
Before the game starts, you will be able to choose the equipment you will use in the match. You choose one primary and one secondary weapon, and additional equipment such as various types of bombs, mines, and you can also have a rocket launcher.
As a primary weapon, you can choose weapons such as a shotgun, automatic rifle, sniper, SMG, or pistol, but also less common weapons such as a crossbow, EMP launcher or exploding throwing knives. There are over a hundred weapons in the game.
The gameplay itself is fast and dynamic. You’ll be in moving constantly, and the maps you play on are a perfect size, so you won’t wander long in search of action. Ironsight’s biggest problem is the lack of players, so sometimes you’ll have to wait for five or even ten minutes for the game to start.

Ironsight is a fun game, which brings nothing new to the first-person shooter genre. A comparison with Call of Duty is inevitable and although Ironsight is a shameless copy of that game, it is a very good copy, and also free. This is a great game and worth playing.
