Pick up your rifle and join the Green or Grey army in their mission to send the enemy home in a box! RUNNING WITH RIFLES is an open world, top-down, tactical shooter for single player and multiplayer online, that puts you right in the middle of chaos in towns, trenches and forests turned into ruthless battlefields, controlling just one soldier in an army of several hundreds. In a war where men die like flies and endless streams of reinforcements run to fill the void, it takes tactics and marksmanship to capture territories effectively. The open world nature of the game enables you to use a multitude of approaches to help the front line move – it's up to you to shape your role. Experience the complete arc starting as a private hardening into a high ranking officer with a squad under command, arming yourself with a variety of weapons and vehicles on your way to glory!
This is a great game. I've described it to friends as a combination between General Chaos, Cannon Fodder, a rather obscure but innovative game called Net War and once vehicles are added, even a touch of Warhawk. On top of all of this, the developer is great and really listens to the community.
Great game, really taking the simple fun from plastic soldier, in a full battleground.
And most of all, you're not the de-facto hero here. You're just another grunt (or potentially a sub-officer), fighting a war opposing hundreds of other soldiers. You can have your heroic moments. But the battle happens with or without you. You're just a part of it.
Alright, I'm gonna make this loud, clear, and simple. After spending almost 80 bucks on both Steam and Desura, including gems such as Torchlight, Terraria, Mincraft, Arma 2, and Battlefield Bad Company 3.......this and Team Fortress 2 are the only games I enjoy.
If there's one game that you're able to buy on Desura, make Running With Rifles it, you won't regret it.
