I just ordered RO yesterday, after reading many reviews, which all praised the game (except G4, but that is...). Now I have read all the quides on the homepage, viewed all available screenshots, and the game hasn't arrived yet.:(

So, does anyone here have it? What do you think of it? Could you post some screens (especially some action shots, and ironsights views would be interesting to see)?

I hope this isn't too spammy, but it just sounds so great, I can't wait!

I bought it of Steam and I am, to be honest, somewhat disappointed. The reason for this is because it was only after I've bought it and played it that I realized that I didn't like it´s ultra realistic gameplay. Even though I mostly play realistic games I still think they have to have a solid funfactor (this is what FH manages to achieve so well). RO, in my opinion, sacrificied too much of the funfactor for realism. I know there are alot of people out there to who the realism in RO is the funfactor, but to me it quickly gets boring and tedious. One thing I also dislike about RO is the somewhat linear maps. There is not nearly as much freedom in RO as there is in FH. In FH a map really is a battlefield. In RO´s maps there are these paths which you are supposed to and often have to take. A good game with some cool features and impressive realism which, unfortunately, quickly gets annoying and boring, imho.

Well, I think I'm one of those who enjoy hardcore realism, so I take that as a pro.:)

This can be a serious con, or if it is made right, an equal pro. I quess I'll have to see it myself.

I like it a lot. I find the realistic gameplay refreshing, and also very intense. For some reason, I find RO to have a bit more intensity than FH, which as one poster points out is a bit more "free" as to what you can do.

I'll frequently switch back and forth between the two, depending on what maps are being played on the few FH servers.

I like the game, it has a lot of detail (like changing the barrel of the MG38 and MG42). The only things I don't like are the uniforms (only the wehrmacht one for the germans, no camo or winter uniform). Changing position in a tank is very nice with the animations. When you are done with the vanilla maps you can play the custom ones. All those maps are fun. You dont have to download them in mappacks because when you click them ingam you will download them. shot000005gq.png Small head shot000010zo.png shot000023li.png

Well... RO team say "first 3D Ironsights (hello, Vietcong!:p )", realistic weapons, accurate tanks models etc... If you want to see full realism, RO not a good reference. For example, T-34 in RO - tanks with postwar modernisation, Tiger - strange mixture of all series, PzKpfw III is just awful... Red Army use PPD-40 in 1941-42, but in RO you can fight with PPD-40 in Berlin:D Too many errors for commercial and "historical accurate" game. Yes, it's more realistic game than CoD or MoH, but you need to remember - it's not 100% accurate game...:rolleyes:

I have it and love evrey bit of it. It's so fun once you get past the relatively steep learning curve.

I agree about the steep learning curve but once you've got it sorted it is a bloody amazing game, especially the tank combat! Details like being able to set the range on your gun sights and being able to pop your head out of hatches for a better view make it awesome in my opinion. A custom map called Orel was recently released that is utterly colossal, and has gone down a storm with the RO community. It is a tank map that is several kilometers square, you can actually see and knock out enemy tanks at ranges exceeding 1000m. I loves it :D

I'll surely do that!

I just got the game, It looks like it's going to be lot's of fun after I get used to it. Is there some other, better program you can use to select a server than the ingame lobby? I can't even see the ping when im using it...:rolleyes: It doesn't seem to work in the all seeing eye. And is there a way you can see that is there bots in the server. Or are there bots in every server?
