First: RO:Ostfront isnt the game everyone likes. Its quite old, so there are just a couple (about 300) people still playing it and because of its age the graphics arent the best too (for me its ok but thats a subjective point). Then its very realistic and slow so you just cant rush somewhere in CoD style, instead you need tactics and a good communication (wich can be a pro argument if you like stuff like this) to make a good round.
One of the good points is the atmosphere: especially in the maps of the destroyed germany where the last germans fight for a already lost war, defending the last strongholds eg. the Reichstag, you really can believe how much war sucks, so the game doesnt give the view of a war that is cool and spread with heroism, instead you can die already by 1 shot. Another good thing for me is that there are no perks or sth like that, so the enemy is always totaly equal to you, you will survive or die because the you or the enemy just was BETTER in shooting and not because he hacked or payed allot of bucks to get benefits.
So Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 is a very special game which the ones like and the ohers dont. If you want to play fast game where you can rush all the time this game wont be the right game for you. If you instead are interested of a very realistic WW2 shooter and shouldnt be interested of RO2 or just want to chekc out the first game of the RO serie, this game can be really fun
