For the first time ever in a first person shooter gamers will be able to experience WWII from the Axis side in a German single player campaign. As always with the Red Orchestra franchise, Tripwire will aim to deliver unrivalled accuracy and attention to detail, along with gritty, vicious combat in multi-player, co-op and solo modes. Again, Tripwire have listened to the fans and have designed a whole set of new features to make the game more accessible and easy to get into – all while delivering the tactical shooter realism fans of the original game loved.

Features:RO multiplayer taken to new heights: Tripwire’s renowned MP already exceeds that of much of the competition – the new game will stretch that lead even further.

The completely unrealistic shooting, the size of the maps do not correspond to the amount of players / muddiness.

Overall, it felt very unclean and still mod-like.

Completely unrealistic shooting! What, Red Orchestra is the most realistic ww2 fps out there.
If you mean by shooting, as in firefights yes that would actually be true. They boosted the level of players from 32 to 50 so some maps should not be played with 50 (Danzig). But on DH on the other hand, they dont play other than 50 player maps. Mostly and combined arms maps which are really fun (that’s tanks and infantry btw)

Watch the the videos of RO2, the Developers even said they messed up the shooting mechanics in the first one and made it actually UNREALISTIC.
