Fight in the theatre of war that changed the world forever. Battle alongside your compatriots on some of the most inhospitable environments of the Eastern Front in Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 RO places you in the most realistic WWII first-person multi-player combat to date on the PC, allowing the player to fight through some of the most intense combat of the war. You can play as infantry, using a wide range of infantry weapons, or crew one of the many armoured combat vehicles available in the game, from half-tracks all the way through to the most famous German and Soviet heavy tanks. You can engage the enemy with everything from your bayonet at close quarters up to the massive 122mm cannon on the Soviet IS-2. And if that isn't enough, find an officer and a radio to call in thunderous artillery strikes to shake the enemy loose.

Indeed, this caught my interest. I'm thinking about picking it up once I get the spare cash.

Indeed same here some. But depends on how imped it. Offa doom3 engine from what I am hearing. Which I wasn't a fan of. Also I hate some games like vehicles useful you have becuase to make vehicles useful the maps have to be so big as to make going on foot stupid and the vehicle whores screw you over. But otherwise it looks great!

(My apologies for the above BF2 bitterness)

It's on the Unreal engine. Red Orchestra was originally a mod for UT2003/2004, but they've recreated it after winning the license for the engine in a mod contest.

So it's out finally, and can't get any reviews that make it worth it. People say the sound is AMAZING, and I've got a 7.1 to check it out, but is the GAME worth the play? I mean 25 bucks for the Doom3 engine. Is it worth it. The game is supposed to be realistic, so that's a plus. If anyone buys this, let me know. I would like in details how it is.
