Red Orchestra really stands out from all of those other thirteen-in-a-dozen WWII games. It focusses a lot on realism and historically accuracy - one of the most important things for a WWII game, in my opinion. Teamwork on public servers is a lot higher than most games, which is great. From the graphics to the sound, to the damage system of the tanks (enemy shells can bounce off of your armor if you angle your tank the right way!), to the immersiveness... everything is pure quality. Big thumbs up to the devs.

To sum things up; if you're into realism, WWII games, intense infantry combat and tactical gameplay, Red Orchestra is the game for you. Download it today and you'll be instantly hooked.

There is a reason why movies have been made about norway's struggle against germany.

And im making a mod about this topic and if norway was an ally to germany I wouldn't bother doing this now would I?

but of course there was lots of germans in norway and some people cooperated with them, but you cant call a country an ally just because some people help you when you have occupied their country.

But now to something concerning this mod.

I just want to say that this is the best ww2 mod ever and I bet all ww2 modders are looking up to you guys. (At least I do) ;)

Great job!

Norwegian resistance spent a long time fighting the Germans..

I'm seriously dissapointed that a RO member claims that Norway were allies with Germany..

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…
