Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad hands-on

By Evan Lahti | January 11, 2011

In October, I flew to Georgia to play the game I’m lusting over most in 2011: Red Orchestra 2. I spent a full day embedded in multiplayer with the folks at Tripwire Interactive, and I’m happy to claim openly that I think the 64-man WWII-’em-up will be better, more modern multiplayer experience than anything else currently on or on its way to your PC. It’s generation-leaping stuff. Come read about it.

This looks refreshing...I haven't touched a WW2 game for a long time. Occasionally, I would play 1942 but this is a game I'm definitely buying.

This might be the next series if BF3 fails hard. Either way I'm buying it. This game is good on so many levels, from it's ultra realistic infantry combat to epic tank battles. The attention to detail is paramount. Real depiction of iron sights, tank HUDs, scope, etc...

E.g, when you drive a tank, you have a driver, a gunner and a commander. If you operate the thing properly and communicate, you own. True game that can't be done on a console.

Might get flamed for this, but the graphics look really bad. Reminded me of COH cutscenes, which weren't bad for an RTS, but a little outdated even then when compared to an FPS.

Wonder if there's a demo I can try out.

I hate this game because it makes other FPS games look like childish crap.
