Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad
Mostly authentic look at infantry combat in WWII.
Extremely challenging, due to realistic modeling of damage and cover.
Atmospheric, well-designed maps.
Absorbing and dramatic gameplay.
Amazing player control scheme.
Stellar audio visual presentation.
Singleplayer campaigns afflicted with terrible AI.
Has a very steep learning curve for new players.
Irrelevant character progression system.
Brutally punishing at times.
Very buggy at launch.
Not enough tools to facilitate teamwork.
Only 10 maps.
