As you can see in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsnmtAXSnMA&feature=related) the G36 has not that much recoil as in game. I've been shooting it and it's very stable on semi and even quiet stable on full-auto.

Not sure, if you say that you shot it, would you then mean that this man is rather untrained: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRvDrgZHbCc? It looks to me pretty much like the recoil simulated in A2OA.

Yes, I've been shooting a G36 with real ammunition. The G36 is a nice, accurate weapon with very less recoil wich enables you to shoot single-shots rapidly with high accuracy.

Now to that video:
First of all, that guy is not leaned forward, so he can't compensate that much for the recoil. You can see his body moving back a lot. If he'd shoot leaned forward, he would be able to compensate the recoil much more.

The second point is, that he is shooting 3-round bursts.

I think you'd agree with me, that the recoil from a single-shot is much less than the recoil from a 3-round burst. :)

Make a video ingame to compare.

It is even easier to handle/more stable than real life it seems vs your video.

Of course like in real life, in the game you need to control your weapon
with your mouse and compensate the recoil.

Next time you shoot with it, mount a camera on it with correct zoom so we can see how quickly and accurately you reaim at your target.

I agree with Banshee. In fact the G36 recoil is too high. I shooted the G36 really often and the semi-auto recoil is slightly lower than ingame. Full-auto recoil is hard to say, because a skilled shooter will have a more accurate spay than a beginner/novice ;) And the "camera-mount" thing CarlGustaffa describes is rubbish, sorry. This won't work xD
