Once you learn the game, try it on Realistic Survival. Its a new trend thats started recently and rooms are becoming more frequent. Its Soldat...Except that when you die you are done for the round. And you die quicker, and can't see around edges that aren't in your line of sight. This makes for stealthy, chaotically paranoid matches where everyone on your team is counting on you to make those last 3 kills. Tons of fun.

I've been playing Soldat for over a year now and still haven't registered. The pop-up isn't annoying in any way and there are practically no missing features. The registration should really be called a "donation" because that's all the creator wants in order to continue to update this great game. In return, he gives you the option to customize the color of your jet flames (which isn't in any way necessary), the ability to choose from different profiles (which is only needed if you have more than one person on your computer and if that person wants different settings), custom interfaces (but there are hundreds of mods that can be used without registering), and an mp3 player (which is also completely unnecessary because you can play the game and have music software running in the background at the same time anyway).
Really, Soldat is an awesome game with an even better community behind it. Learning how to play is extraordinarily simple especially since there's such a diverse collection of servers that host different types of players. And if that isn't easy enough, there are even training bots that you can use and set the difficulty on.
As for the "barret-*twiggy*" comment, barrets aren't much of a problem any more as weapon balancing has become much more efficient. If you have a problem with someone who has this one-hit-kill weapon, you can simply shoot them to send their accuracy down the drain (and when they miss their one and only shot, you can easily take them out before they have time to reload).
This is one game that everyone should at least try, and if you like it, you can join the forums (which are much friendlier and more interesting than other game's forums); or, if you don't like it (but you will), it's a quick and painless deletion for such a small file size.

I've been playing about 6 months now without registering...The registration in no way effects gameplay and therefore cannot be called required.

I also think, in the review, there should be a bit more added. Soldat also has a very nice Map Maker, which is very easy to learn. You can also modify your interfaces in the Interface Maker.
Soldat is an intense game, so if you don't like it, you don't need to complain. Just leave it and join another game. And the registering pop-up, you're gunna whine over a 3 second screen? What are you stupid?

Its already one out of 4 most popular and most downloaded game. It is the game with the second most hits for the time being.
Oh and Mr. S4R, I would appreciate it if you wouldn't call me stupid, there are more civilized ways to convey your disaproval.
