It's pretty fun, except, is it just me or are there no death animations? Sorry if I missed something.

Yup it really is amazing, you cant beat the satisfaction of taking out 5 in a row with bolt action gun. It feels like your in saving private ryan the way theres the puff of blood/dust when it hits then the body goes limp and falls realisticly.

HORRIBLE!!! The only good thing this has going for it is the gun models! The sounds are CRAP! The levels are bland and boring! The characters are bubbly, like cartoons and most of all the game play is horrendous. I seriously had high hopes for this game but they most definitely have been shot down!

Totally_tonedef, way to be mature and make suggestions for improvements instead of completely ripping on the mod, when about 99% of people would dissagree with you.

Incase you didn't know. We won the BEST SOUNDS section of the Make Something Unreal contest, how can we have bad sounds then? explain

I also dont think the players look like cartoons:

Well quite frankly, I did give examples of improvements: EVERYTHING. It is nice that you won the award and good job! I understand that there is always going to be improvements. I wasn't so much "ripping on the mod" as much as I was being blunt. If I was merely "ripping" I would have just said something like, "You guys are %$*#@%$ stupid and the game was nothing but &%#*, you guys need to get a life..." and just so you know I don't think that. I do see potential!

Now if you would like more detailed examples:

Characters: They do have some stubby and bubbly features about them, they don't so much look like Disney cartoons but toony none the less, their boots are one factor that gets to me, don't think I hate the models, compared to most mods they are great, and they are, it is just that they distract from the realistic WWII setting.

Levels: First of all I was to say that all the levels in the towns are great, and pretty complex my only beef with them is that the textures are too clean. They need some smudges and other small details to make them look dirty. As for the other levels (the open ones, I don't remember any names) they lack a lot of direction, and flavor and begin to get completely repetitive and old FAST.

SOUNDS: The sounds are weak to put it more plainly. I am a big sound person they get me pumped up when I am playing especially gun sounds. The gun sounds you have now are not bad but they just don't have a good kick to them, namely the MG. And ambient noises like the sound of walking is a bit lacking also, maybe some more jingles from the equipment clanging each other might solve most of this, and background noises should carry sounds of shots in the distance along with distant explosions. I understand you won "BEST SOUND" but that could simply mean that everyone else’s were horrible...they had to give the award to someone.

Game Play: The main thing I see a problem here is that you have to play slow in order to stay alive, but the levels end too fast, where 30 min. in DoD might seem like more than enough time, in RO it clearly isn't and on top of that the objectives can get confusing, but this is just something I have heard others complain about. They say that they wish that they could at least see where they are on the map, or at least have a compass, so they know which way to go. And maybe some sort of signifier over friendly heads other than their names then you look at them could prove most helpful, because a lot of the times the name wont pop up and some of the models look alike and then I get shot by or shoot a teammate, and I have even been in an event where we killed each other at the same time from across the level, and if it happens too much, accident or not, the server kicks. In my eyes it seems as though you are sacrificing playability for realism, I like the free aim and some of the other features, but a map or other indicators could prove to be a good move.

As for yourself I was merely saying some things and keeping it brief I am sorry if you where offended and I hope this post is a bit more to your liking. As for the bit about 99% of people who would disagree with me, that statement seems a little bold don't you think, to be conceited is not going to help you succeed. I also suggest learning to take some constructive criticism a bit better, no matter how harsh it is.

I take constructive criticism, but not **** like that. And yes I agree 99% is a bit bold. Not that many people dissagree to the point that the mod is great, but I'm willing to bet most people would dissagree with you that the sounds, levels and characters in RO suck.

winning msu what a surprise! of course a mod that has like 50 people working on it is gonna win, why have a contest at all? why not just give it to the RO team? Everyone mod doesn't have a fair chance anyway.
The RO mod is great and they deserve to win but the MSU contest is just stupid.

RO winning "MSU contest" now why doesn't that come as a surprise? No wonder why mods that have like 50+ people working on it wins. Why have a contest at all? Just give the award to the RO team..
Red Orchestra is a great mod but the MSU contest is really stupid..
