Summary: If you're not already familiar with the setup to RO2, please give me a moment to explain. The setting for this game is the city of Stalingrad, located on the west bank of the Volga river in southern Russia. The battle of Stalingrad lasted from July 1942 to February 1943 and stands as the most apocalyptic and devastating battle in human history. Naturally, you play as the German fascist invader, or the Russian Bolshevik defender.
Summary: Just received this product out of the box. I read many of the reviews saying that it is bugged and very slow performance wise. I'm here to tell you that you don't have to worry about either of those problems. The current version you'll see on this page is the fully patched and content updated version. This means that it has been optimized for a wide range of PC's to run. Gameplay: The Red Orchestra series is the most realistic FPS's on the market.
Summary: Red Orchestra 2 may have had some teething problems a year ago but now, one year later it is a smooth running, beautiful, engaging, and often tense online WWII game unlike anything else on the market. We have several copies now, and play together in all of the game play modes. There are new maps and other upcoming (Free!) content being released on a monthly basis now too as the RO2 community kicks in with their user created gems.
Summary: When this game was first released there were quite a number of problems with it. The game wasn't well optimized and ran pretty bad on my system that was well above the recommended settings. In May a giant patch was released that pretty much fixed everything and now the game really shines. I would rate this game as currently my favorite fps game in the market along with dayz.
Summary: This game has received a lot of criticism since its launch. Knowing that I waited for it to be optimized and built myself a reasonable PC to run it at its highest quality settings. The game loaded without a hitch and runs smoothly on my Core i5 2500K, Nvidia GTX 570 1280MB, 16GB PC3 12800 RAM, Win 7 64, Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 board. I'm running stock everything - no overclocks and the game runs as smooth as silk.
Summary: Red Orchestra 2, the much anticipated sequel to Red Orchestra Ostfront, delivers a unique First Person Shooter experience set on the Eastern Front during World War Two. It has to be said that the developers did release this game too early, but it also has to be said, unlike other developers, Tripwire did not leave their game to die a slow death. On the 24th May 2012, they released a hefty 5GB patch which has pretty much eliminated all previous problems with the game.
Summary: Red Orchestra 2 is wonderful. The "psudo-realism" setting that most Modern-era FPS have taken is vexing. A gaming experience shouldn't require much suspension of disbelief. Team Fortress 2 is a great game for its cartoon fantasy setting, allowing us to imerse ourselves in the gameplay world. Call of Duty on the other hand takes a "realistic graphic/settings" approuch, but keeps gameplay highly casual (i.e.
