Let's Play Steam's Free Red Orchestra 2

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad in spades when it comes to multiplayer.

This weekend marked a special occasion for us all, even if you didn’t know about it. Steam held not 1 but 2 amazing free-to-play events with the amazing Civilization V and also Red Orchestra 2. Since we all know I’m already well versed in the prior, I decided to try something new and jump into Red Orchestra 2, which had just received a Game of the Year Edition. And let me tell you: This was not disappointing whatsoever.

The free event only extended to the multiplayer, but as far as first person shooters go, this has been the most versatile and well-crafted multiplayer capabilities I’ve seen in years. If you excuse for a second the rather repetitive voice acting, the game itself is a breathtaking experience of enormous, realistic matches in different settings with rewarding and fair progress for all. Depending on what style you like, from action driven to pure realism, this game offers something suited for everyone with some deeply tactical elements that force you to adapt. The only real downside I could see is that the color schemes are so grey and similar; it becomes severely confusing to distinguish different teams. Given Red Orchestra 2 offers a realistic approach, this also means that shooting your buddy in the face is not good for team morale.

Again though, this FPS delivers in spades when it comes to multiplayer. It’s refreshing to see a game employ realism properly with widespread options to boot. To commemorate my brief stint in this world I had to let go with pain in my heart, I present to you this gameplay video of some of my ups and downs. I miss getting shot out of nowhere already.

  • Seems difficult based on your play. Specially when you can't tell who's shooting at you from where. Among all the modern warfare shooters this could be a good change of pace.
