Well here’s a game we haven’t heard from in a while, but it’s back and on Tim’s Twitch channel no less. Yes it is that toughest of World War 2 shooters, Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. Since we reviewed it way back in 2011 none of us at MMGaming have really played much of Red Orchestra 2, which is a shame because it is indeed a fine game full of intense combat which has nowhere near the publicity or spread it really deserves. Tim has now rectified this by having a streaming session with the realistic FPS created by Tripwire Interactive and has even saved a couple of the best moments of his time spent playing it for your viewing pleasure. If you fancy a quick laugh and a quick example of gameplay why not check after the jump to watch a surprising amount of ownage in what is a ridiculously difficult game!
Of COURSE it’s not called The Medal of Honour Pack… Don’t be daft. I was merely being clever. And it WAS clever (trust me on that) because the expansion pack for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, named Rising Storm, is set in the Pacific in the war between in the USA and Japan. This means it’s going to be sunnier and more “jungley” than the actual Heroes of Stalingrad.
Well I finally got my act together and here is my long-awaited and long-outdated review of Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. First off, just to goad Tim a little, I will say that I had perfectly good reasons for not being able to get this done sooner! Plus a diary of my slow adventures through it like I am doing with Gears of War 3 would have just been silly. Because every single mission is the same. Blast! I meant to say something nice first! Otherwise it won’t make any sense… Okay, take a chill pill and let’s get started.
