Handheld Heroes Reviews - Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad

Kimerex of Handheld Heroes writes - "Red Orchestra 2 : Heroes of Stalingrad is a grand return to the series for Tripwire Interactive. They set out to push what they had already established as a hyper-realistic tactical fps set in the WWII era, and damn if they didn't get close to a perfect product. Not without a slew of bugs and upcoming patches, DLC and re-coding, RO2 hit Steam and brought a rare genre of game back out into the world with a new face and some new tools in the toolbox. But is this game a hero among the rubble fighting for a good cause, or a soldier running head long into MG fire screaming against on overwhelming sense of standardization?"

The great thing about this game is that Tripwire (if the 1st RO is any indication) WILL constantly iron out bugs and glitches. RO was seeing constant updates, fixes and tweaks years after release. Their constant diligence and devotion to their game and fan base is second to none in my opinion. So many game devs just dont and wont follow up with improvements like tripwire does as they are more interested in their next cash cow game. I have great faith that this game will become legendary amongst the hardcore WWII sim folks. Bravo for shooting high. Sure maybe they should have spent some more dev time with this puppy but it will eventually grow up into a huge ravenous beast for those who are patient. To hell with all the whining babies who demand perfection right away. Patches can take care of spawn campers and the like. Those who are too scared to move up in tanks and refuse to play as a team etc just prove that this game is too intense for them, and will, with any luck fade away only to be replaced with people who know how this game is meant to be played. They are the ones who will be missing out and its probably for the best as I for one, dont want to play this game with them in my squad anyway, so run along and play your CoD and BF3. The real hardcore will be on RO HoS. RO veterans know what hell to do and understand the beast in this title. Patience fellows, the patches will come.
