Great mod with an interesting setting that I haven't seen before, but I think the Mare was shot dead before she was even born.

What I'm trying to say is... this mod's kicked the bucket.

It's an ok mod. No one plays it anymore, though, Still, give it a try. You might be lucky enough to join a decently populated server.

Great WW2 mod set in the African theater
Its a beautiful mod, but sadly there are no players. Theres a lot of attention to detail on the maps and models.This game shines in vehicle combat.Theres a huge variety of light, medium and heavy tanks for the allies and axis forces. I really like how it feels like your sitting inside the tank , you get to look through all the periscopes and you can raise the armoured hatch to get a better view ( but sacrifice protection) of the battle. The bots are really kooky so its not really worth playing by yourself. Theres only on server up as of December 20, 2015 and theres never been anyone on when ever I"ve checked. You can still find people playing Darkest Hour but everyone else has moved on to the New Red Orchestra or other games.Its their lose.

God speed you magnificent ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

9/10 Great Mod but needs players

A decent mod but not a very good one, this game lacks variety class - wise and it really has very few maps compared to Darkest Hour or Ostfront 41 - 45. I recommend playing it as it is worth at least tryong and playing for awhile but you will most likely get bored quickly as I did.

Hey everyone. Yes the Mod is Dead....dead. However, I started a group last year (which has not gone anywhere do to the fact that many people in the group never wanted to participate) trying to revive this mod.

-If any fellow players would like to try and revive this, just join the group and message me!
We can do this and make this alive just like Darkest Hour.

This is a very nice mod that had a lot of problems establishing a strong community and therefore is generally ignored and poorly known. It is set on the North African front of WW2 and offers balanced combat, on the same engine of Unreal 2 from Red Orchestra. It implies the same mechanics and with the latest update is enjoying the addition of Steam achievments.If you have Red Orchestra feel free to download Mare Nostrum.

If you like World War 2 first person shooter PVP simulations, this is a free good game to get as a mod of Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. This game is more on the realistic side of WW2 combat while still using the Battlefield 2 type of game style.

You will be using authenically modeled weapons with iron sights. There are no bullet counters, no zoom function, hard to tell friend from foe and have friendly fire. Has fatigue that limits movement , no healing. Tanks are modeled as close to real thing. Some classes are Limited in number to a few, while plenty of soldiers with bolt action rifles. Has artillery strikes called in by a radio located at major bases.
You can play as infantry or tanker only.

Mare Nostrum is the North Africa, Italy and Crete battles. Has Italian and German vs English and American forces. Mare Nostrum is a Mod of Red Orchestra, so you need to buy RO.

Needs more people playing and more servers hosted.

A great way for even more Red Orchestra content, this mod adds another whole set of maps for you to enjoy! Sadly there are almost never servers up for this mod making the game hard to enjoy, or even play for that matter without a large group of friends or at least a group of people organized enough to host a full server.

Amazing mod for a fantatic game. Red Orchestra 1 is one of the fullest featured and undoubtedly the best multiplayer FPS of the last decade for me. The sequel, Ro2, is complete ♥♥♥♥, and a waste of money.

Mare Nostrum is a game on that LONG, LONG, SAD list of games that are amazing fun to play and DESERVE to have hundreds or thousands of people playing at a time, but no one plays them.

Darkest Hour is a Ro1 mod that still gets daily play and full servers.

I wish this game has 1000's playing, because it is excellent, like 9/10 on a bad day.

This is a great mod from RO, it adds new guns and covers my second favorite part of the war: The African Invasion. So needless to say, new guns, new maps, interesting part of the war so why does no one play it? Well i can give credit to the other mod which actually still has one server open and full of players all the time. Over all there isn't anything wrong with this mod as i said, its just that no one plays it any more.
