Summary: Game launched with many performance issues. Many players had computer crashes and game play suffered. There is a patch promised and this may improve things. This is not a game for a player new to first person shooters as a veteran player will kill you very, very, quickly.
Summary: These comments are general and mostly about the single player game. There are some good things about this game; The graphics are good and representation of real structures is historically accurate. Much of the conflict is at longer, more realistic ranges.
Summary: This game is a more realistic shooter in the sense that a bullet or 2 kills you. No getting shot up and taking a breather. This is something I like, you have to be careful and use strategy to defeat your opponent. Huge maps and you can go inside and explore almost all structures.
Summary: Be careful, weed out the sycophantic "fanbois" pseudo "reviews" here and everywhere else. This game is a dog with fleas. One of the worst releases of the year easily. Unless you are an RO / OSTFRONT fanatic, and/or a WWII semi-realism fanatic and a buggy, broken, old looking game does not bother...
Summary: Your cd is actually access to Steam which you load and register online. then you download software and your problems start. Delete directories, modify msconfig and it still doesn't work, executable missing! Delete programmes to test if it will work. This is not worth the time and effort.
Conclusion: Like many others I've been waiting ages for a decent WWII shooter and unfortunately this just isn't good enough. The original Red Orchestra went for a realism-oriented approach but RO2 seems stuck between sticking with that or trying to attract arcade/action-oriented players used to games like CoD;...
Summary: This title seemed to be right up my street but first it took 3 days (!!!!!) to update - why can't titles be sold including the common patches? Then it turned out to be a bit too slow and clunky to really enjoy. Not quite good looking enough, not quite fun enough, not quite smooth enough. Pity.
