Honestly, if you looked hard enough, you'd find the RO download. You shouldn't say a game isn't downloadable without going to both filefront and fileplanet looking for it. RO is on both of these sites, so stop saying all this crap and go there.

It's not realistic at all. Your character can't run 10 feet without running out of breath, it feels like you're sliding on ice all the time, there's no way to reload any MG, the weapon sway is set to high, your allies LOVE to run you and other allies over whenever they get inside a tank, the AI barely shoots and when they do it's always from the hip so their shots go wild all the time and the controls are near impossible to learn. Oh yeah, and the char models look like ass. Some of them (I swear…
