Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad Reviews

One of the better games in this genre

Posted

Pros: Great levels of realism/authenticity, no silly arcade features, not casual, teamwork emphasis

Cons: Single player campaign hardly exists, but that's a given

Red Orchestra 2 is an amazing sequel, and represents where PvP war-based shooters should have gone. Instead they've gone backwards, becoming more messy and more casual (while fooling their playerbase into believing otherwise, often without even trying). This is very obvious if you compare this game to another game of the same genre that came out around the same time, Battlefield 3. The realism and authenticity bring intensity levels above and beyond all other PvP shooters.

Pros: Graphics and sound quality, Realism mode.

Cons: Some bugs, confusing controls.

Red Orchestra 2 is a World war 2 first person Shooter from Tripwire interactive. It is available on steam as a game of the year edition for as low as $5 on sale. The gameplay itself is the fairly common first person shooter experience, go around and shoot the enemy, capture or defend areas and try not perish. The single player is decent and fairly long, and is very challenging set to hard. The online multiplayer is brilliant and I found it very enjoyable chiefly set to realism mode. Starting a game in multiplayer there are limited classes each with unique abilities and weapons for you to use, such a commander, sharpshooter and rifleman. You have two teams to choose from, the Russian...
