Summary: This sequel to Red Orchestra: Ostfront is decent, and can actually be addictive. The single player is only good for getting to know the controls and weapons. Multi player is where the fun starts; assuming you're ready to die numerous times before even getting close to a kill. But once you do aim down your sight and tag an enemy you'll realize it was worth the wait. There are some bugs still in the game, but they aren't that noticeable anymore, thanks to some patches.
Summary: This game was a little too clunky when it first came out, I couldn't run it in "ultra" graphics mode on my dual radeon 5850s, I had to disable crossfire and run single card on high, which was ok but a little dated. Now that game of the year edition has come out I gave it another try and have found performance greatly improved, and can run at ultra settings with crossfire enabled. It looks pretty good and it feels smoother.

Summary: A sequel to the innovative WW2 first-person shooter, Red Orchestra 2 continues a legacy of realistic combat action. "Red Orchestra 2" is a first-person shooter set on the Eastern Front of World War 2. Players take the roles of Russian and German soldiers as they fight across fields, through city streets, and into apartment complexes.
Summary: Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad I am a big fan of BF2 on PC and really liked the COD and MOH series on XBOX. RO is something different but, I really like it! If you are into run an gun (spray & pray) then I suggest you get lots and lots of practice because you may get a few kills but, they (the enemy) will get you rather quickly. The graphics and gore are pretty dang good! I walked into a room I thought was vacant (always check yer corners!
Summary: I like WWII shooters and I like games that aim to be more realistic. I played the original Red Orchestra, didn't buy that one, but decided to give this one a try. The trailers made the game look pretty fun, and it is, but it requires more patience and craftiness than the typical run-of-the-mill shooter. The game looks good first of all. I play with the graphics on the highest settings and it looks like a war movie.
Summary: There were a number of complaints about this game during the beta but I cannot speak to that as I did not order it from Steam - I picked up a retail copy. But, from the few hours I have played this game, I will say it is worth the purchase. I have put in a number of hours into the original RO and it has always held a special place for me in my FPS library. In fact, leading just up to RO2, I was still playing RO.
Still some bugs, but a really fun semi-realistic shooter

Summary: This game probably isn't for everyone. It doesn't have AS steep a learning curve as the ARMA II mods, but it's a lot tougher than the COD series. If you are like me and enjoy both types of games, then you might like COD and this one too. If you ONLY like to get killstreaks while running around in the open shooting from the hip, then this isn't for you. There are still some bugs in the game, but Tripwire has a good track record of continued support and patching.
