I still remember playing Soldat a year after it came out and even then it felt like an institution. There's still little since that has nailed the 2D run and game deathmatch formula with the sense of speed in a way I've been able to connect to.

It's been over 13 years since the first major build of Soldat was published, but the game's still kicking along. It's just gotten another hefty patch, which least of all introduces an immense performance boost that should please many.
