So far I'm the only person to vote for the both choice...
When I first started Sodlat I played realistic only, but now I'm on to normal and have been for a good 2 years.
But I still love realistic, nothing like sneaking up and knifing somone in the back.

Realistic isn't my type of thing. Unrealistic recoils ruined it for me.

Realistic all the way. I just love it.
I don't what you guys say, RS rocks.
Doesn't hurt to post your personal opinion. ;D

Every now and then I play normal though. They're both fun.

Realistic nowadays. Why? The community is much nicer, there are lass arseholes and matches aren't determined by who can spray the most.
Same here, I love realistic mode, but the lack of Australian servers almost forces me to play normal...
I love the strategy of realistic (and especially realistic/survival), and you really have to rely on your team. Also, it's more "on the edge of your seat" kind of play.
Plus, I am better at R/S :D

RS is def. a teamwork game...that is one of the main reason it's popular.Personally i favor normal, but when i got good team chemistry goin, i love me some R/S
Your acting like your having a duel and your opponent gets a pistol and you get a spork.
Isn't that pretty much what it is? I dunno wtf a spork is, I suppose it's way weaker than the pistol since you compared that to this.

Go normal...and also...

between R/S and normal I would choose normal because of what xtishereb said
but between realistic and normal I would choose realistic mainly because it involves more tactics than just spraying

Why does everyone complain about spraying?? Its like if a person gets a hk or a steyr they are automatically called a sprayer everysingle time they kill someone. If you dont want to get killed by a 'sprayer' get out of the spray.

Realistic mode is better except recoilshouldn't be that high and that thing when you bump in a wall should damage but not kill you (if you have 100% health)

normal mode by far.

if i wanted a realistic-as-possible game, i'd turn on my steam acc and play cs\css\whatever instead.
and besides, its not even that realistic, just a mode where a few weapons are alot stronger than the others.

And fall damage, and line of sight, and recoil...

Realistic mode all the way! I couldnt care less about the recoil, I play realistic so often now that while I'm firing I just naturally move my cursor down to compensate for the recoil and most of my shots go... mostly... in the direction that I want them to go. I'm used to fall damage and you can just avoid it by boosting half a second before you hit the ground. Characters being invisable is pretty cool too because you actually have to look around and use your speakers to help locate the enemy instead of just holding in one place and looking around your character.

And campers are dealth with fairly easily... you can mostly just rush them and kill them in a blink o.O

I almost always play realistic mode now because it's just more fun in my opinion... whenever I go into an arcade game I just get slaughtered because of my tendancies from RL such as moving my cursor down to compensate for recoil and thinking that the nemy cant see me when they have their character's back turned to me XP

Normal mode is like Classic Coke: You don't need to change it, but you might find something you like if you do.
Ew all other coke types taste like crap especially caffeine free diet...
anyway back to topic... i don't like realistic, is a bit annoying. when soldats fade out when they go behind something it just looks wierd in a platform game.

yea, but its 'realistic'. in real life you would see that person dissapear too...

But now knowing where your enemy is, is great.
Too use the words of Sev(Star Wars Republic Commando game)
"Nothing better than a jungle hunt. Hiding in the bush, putting a bullet through a hostile's cranium... makes me feel alive."

Like Sowaka said, you use the sound more, where you hear the enemy, and compensate for the recoil.

Normal, I can't stand the fall damage. The recoil in Realistic is pretty much useless with selfbink.
