New UT2004 Red Orchestra

The Red Orchestra Website now offers the new beta 2.0 of the Red Orchestra modification for Unreal Tournament 2004. The mod's user's manual offers details on what's new in this mod, which is set on the bloody Eastern front of World War II. The site's pretty hosed at the moment, so here are some mirrors: FileFront, FilePlanet (registration required), Filerush (torrent), and Fileshack (registration required).

#40. hey, actually I do enjoy the discussion as well and didn't perceive you as a jackass(well..at least not anymore after your last 3 posts .

I am realistic too, but for one I don't want realism turn into fatalism and for the other, reality does show that at least once in a while, periodically someone somewhere pulls off something original and succeeds because of exactly that. if it weren't so we'd still be playing space invaders

I must also say.. I don't really "demand" or expect the mega hyper total innovation.I'm already pleased with a distinct different visual twist.
Like.. on the gameplay side those war shooters ,especially squad based do have a lot to offer, but you can follow the same play mechanism in a different setting and different visual style. Freedom Fighters would be somewhat of an example for that.
I agree.. many titles that seemed somewhat fresh, where actually a mish-mash of the old, but its like with cooking,where a different combination of the same spices can make up for a new wonderful dish.
what also bugs me is that the technological possibilities have grown so much, yet the creativity does seem to fall behind sometimes . sure publishers/market politics have a major impact here.
it's interesting to see though, that some of the more interesting stuff comes from those countries who somehow just started to put their foot into the game business. Stalker would be the big example here.

one thing that I think also often hurts the case is the almighty hype machine. it puts all the focus on a very few games and makes it hard to catch attention for anything else. Far Cry stands for both the good and the bad here imho. On one hand it did things a little different and has its share of freshness and while I think its a good game, I do also think it is a little overrated and for whatever reason most reviews simply seem to completely ignore its flaws .
Black&white .. yeah, oh how I was looking forward to that and how I enjoyed the first couple of hours playing it, only to certainly but slowly drift away into disappointment then.
