Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad
Red Orchestra can be described as tactical, pacey, intriguing, interesting and believable, but there’s one word many miss out. Beautiful.
It’s a game of smoke and mirrors - creeping up behind your antagonist and sticking him in the back of the head with a bayonet. You’re always in the thick of it, not a super-soldier or invincible badass, but just another person in a futile war.
Red Orchestra 2 is beautiful because it illustrates the brutality and futility of war, and there’s no other game that pulls this off in quite the same way.
