Cross Fire – Online Fastpaced Multiplayer Shooting Game

Simon Slangen 17-03-2009

online-multiplayer-shooting-game Global Risk. The best soldiers, hand selected from the world’s leading Special Forces organisations. The members of this nation-bound group are the elite of the elite, and although they fight for money, they are driven by justice.


Global Risk confronts Black List. Another organisation, though not quite so noble. These international mercenaries commit terror, focusing solely on the profit. This independent group frequently sponsors and participates in terrorist actions.

A ruthless battle emerges at a meeting of the front. Blood reigns high, and it’s impossible to say who’s winning.

Cross Fire

These are the two teams of Cross Fire, a completely free online multiplayer First Person Shooting game, that recently started its Open Beta.

The first thing you probably want to know is what makes it that special, the new unseen features, and such.


Well, if that is what you’re looking for, I’ll have to disappoint you. Cross Fire follows the shooter principles to the letter. Nearly none of the game’s aspects deviate from the shooter standards.

And that’s leads us to why it’s such a great game.


These days are filled – over the top sometimes – with gaming experiments. It’s nice to be able take a break from that, and play a normal game from time to time. The makers made their choice very clear, as they declared: “No photon lasers. No energy fields. Just blood, and guts”

Because of this ‘simple’ direction the developers took the project, they were able to spend a lot more time in fine tweaking it.


I must say, there are few free online shooters that feel as complete and finished as Cross Fire, and the latter has just started Beta phase.

The game runs as smooth as an gelatine eel. You shouldn’t expect Crysis graphics, with a maximum resolution of 1024, but the gameplay ought to get you licking your fingers. After merely a few minutes, you’ll be hopping along with the rest, feeling like you’ve played this game for years – and want to keep playing, for that matter.

Game Modes

Cross Fire hosts four game modes for intensive online play; ‘Search & Destroy’, ‘Team Deathmatch’, ‘Elimination’ and the all new ‘Ghost Mode’.

Search & Destroy

Cross Fire - Online Fastpaced Multiplayer Shooting Game 16 03 2009 20 45 30You win by either eliminating all members of the oposing team, or by completing set objectives (e.g. defusing or planting a bomb)


This game mode is usually played in multiple rounds. The team with the most rounds won being the victor.

Team Deathmatch

Cross Fire - Online Fastpaced Multiplayer Shooting Game 16 03 2009 20 52 46An explanation shouldn’t be needed here. Eliminating as many members of the enemy party as possible is your sole mission.

There’s only one round, with instant respawns for whoever is killed. The victor is the team that reaches the kill limit first.

The team that manages to eliminate all members of the enemy party wins a round. A set number of rounds needs to be won to win the game.

Ghost Mode

crossfire onlineThis is an innovating and unique game mode, newly introduced by Cross Fire.

The Black List members are invisible, but have only a knife and C4. They need to blow up a target, but can be heard by the Global Risk members, who are visible, but have access to all weapons.

Download it now

Cross Fire is a free 268 MB download. It’s intensive action, but light graphics ensure great fun on both the stronger and weaker computer systems.

    An online game is a game that could be played in the browser your using, and doesn't have to be downloaded. Therefore, this is not an online game. Multiplayer and online are 2 different things

      b. Connected to a computer or computer network.

      An (in-)browser game is a game that could be played in the browser you're using, and only gets downloaded to the temp files. Therefore, this is indeed not a browser game - it's an online game. In-browser and online are 2 different things.

      There. I think your facts are straight now. You're welcome.

    i just think this game is over rated, just play combat arms, combat arms has more guns,which u can customize, and pretty much like almost the same gear customization stuff, AND you can pick up other ppls guns, so u dont have to waste ur money on guns, just use the high lvl player's guns

    • superslim

      You can pick up other people's guns in Cross Fire as well! ;)

    Is anyone else having troubles with installing the client? It'll install just fine and after updating, it'll say that there was a problem with the anti-cheat GameGuard system it uses... Maybe I need to reinstall the little bugger.

    It looks alright, however I don't like the graphics, if it had better graphics then I would have definately have downloaded it. I'll just stick to CSS!!

  28. JX
    March 17, 2009 at 5:40 pm's a DOWNLOADABLE game, which you play ONLINE.

    Really Mark, is it that hard to grasp?

    This is NOT an "online" game, it is a game download!

      on·line or on-line (nln, ôn-)
      a. Under the control of a central computer.
      b. Connected to a (computer or a) computer network.

      Online as in, "Hey, let's campaign with someone who's on the other side of the world!"
      According to your definition CSS, TF2, L4D, WoW, and so on wouldn't even classify as 'online' games.

      I suspect you're talking about in-browser games, Mark. Try Quake Live.

          OMG! Quake lIVE is so hard because I'm used to first-person shooter games with the present weapons we have now! And most of them in Quake Live are PROS! So, be aware of them or else they will start to get in your nerves!
