“Average community rating”
9.5/10 – Desura

“Running with Rifles is the kind of game that you think you know how to play, but after you die a dozen times in a row you'll realize it's not actually about running around with rifles. [...] This ain't no arcade game!”
Co-Optimus

“This game stands out as a truly iconic shooter. With the vast range of gameplay aspects as well as the addictive style and pace, this game is truly one of a kind. War games have been done before, but never to such a free and open extent.”
10/10 – TheSmilingArsonist @ Desura

Best Top down army man style shooter out there, multiplayer is hilarious with buddies and the AI makes you wonder if thats really a human sometimes... When I first got it I I was worried that it was sort of forgotten about but its been worked on a fair amount to my relief. Addictive combat and interesting supply mechanics give it Tons more entertaining hours than you would think. Abradolf says BUY

OK, after hours and hours I have decided to write a review. And dont get me wrong, I love this game, it is by far the game I play the most, but it is also by far the most frustrating game I play as well. The greatest strangth this game has is the coop game play mode, but in its current state, you WILL NOT have a play session without desyncing, lagging, and teleporting, and as such I cant really suggest anyone play it, unless you are ok with constant desync issues. Teleporting from behind cover just at the right momment to die. Trying to climb a ladder only to teleport meters away like you were never on the ladder, driving a vehicle and the controls are extremely delayed, bumbing into a tree and getting desynced, trying to drop deployable cover, then for some reason you automatically drop the next cover in your inventory, when you only meant to drop one, the list goes on and on. My lag is only ever around 50 to 70, and only ever fluxuates up or down at max ten points, a very normal flux for anybody. and yet, the server is only ever sending me out 8 to 10 max and im only ever sending out 1 or less. Constant server crashes is a norm. So, despite my thumbs up, I cant honestly recomend this game unless you want to play single player, or you are ok with constant lag. something must be done if the game is ever to grow like it should. This game should be winning awards, this game should be at the top of everyones list, but yet it isnt, and the desync issues are the reason why.

RUNNING WITH RIFLES is a top-down isometric tactical shooter with open-world RPG elements. In RWR, you join the ranks of an army as a common soldier, in one of the three factions, the greenbelts (United States), Brownpants (Russia/China), Greycollars (Germany/Fourth German Reich), among thousands of other soldiers of your faction. You start off as nothing more than a common soldier having access to nothing more than the most basic weapons, the M16, AK47, and the G36. You slowly progress through the ranks unlocking more weapons and armor as well as grenades. These will save your life multiple times and will take many people's lives doing so. You gain access to sniper rifles, rocket launchers, artillery(support), shotguns, and silenced SMGs. There is a loadout to suit every player's style, whether you like striking out as a lone wolf weilding a sniper and a PDW, or you decide to become a heavy weapons specialist carrying a machine gun as well as a rocket launcher or a dozen, or even if you want to be a common solfier sacraficing his life for the glory of their country. However, one of the few cons of this game is the seemingly impossible online connections in which it is extraordinarily difficult to connect. This game offers something for everyone, so I come to my conclusion, I HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone who happens to stumble upon this.

This game is the ultimate stress reliever. Tune up some bad aim AI and drop airstrikes on them. Or find a good spot and mow them down, idc just make them dead. its good for you.

or you can steal a jeep(or a tank, if you nasty) and cruise around for mayhem.

or you could play with weird people on the internet if that's your thing.

Running with Rifles is an intense, top-down, tactical shooter. There is a way for any type of player in this game. If you wanted to lead your squad to victory as a Lieutenant, you can do this. If you wanted to provide cover fire to your teamates with an LMG or sniper rifle, you can do this. If you wanted to go behind enemy lines and sabatoge enemy outposts using stealth or guns-blazing, you can do this. If you wanted to support your team as a medic, you can do this.

Pros:

-Fun tactical gameplay
-Different ways to play the game
-Supports Windows, Mac and Steamplay
-Lots of types of vehicles
-Lots of different guns
-Great for multiplayer

Cons:

-Easy to die
-You have to do a lot of running
-Its basically Tug of War when capturing bases
-Battles last for hours
-Going alone is basically suicide
I hope this review helps you decide if you want to buy this game or not.

It's a very good game with the concept of being "you are literally a soldier in a sea of other soldiers." You will die to NPC's. Like, a lot. But there is one major flaw I have with this game, and that is the fact that sometimes an entire singleplayer game will depend on you and you alone, because your AI teammates are the literal epitome of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, since they just run into the enemies fire. I have had a boring and rage-filled three hour slog because an entire map was our army sprinting to their deaths in the brownpants fortress, while I die over and over and over again trying to sneak in and get the objective done. It gets old after awhile, but it's still a really fun game especially with multiplayer.

Also, if you didn't know, Greenbelts = American, Brownpants = Russians, and Greycollars = Germans

Soldiers:

1-30 die horribly, ♥♥♥♥ing horribly.

31-45 I'm figuring out cover and concealment and looting for rp.

45-80 I'm starting to kill some baddies.

Willie "Motherfucl<er" Coleman is my new spawn. He earned the nickname, he had balls the size of Chesty Puller's jowls. Willie pushed a frontline 3 separate times, Willie held off a ~25 man wave of Grey Collars at about 15m using only a small half-cover rock. Willie saved the ♥♥♥♥ing day, as the surge of friendly troops rushed by, Willie ran alongside them, proud of his accomplishment. Willie got run the ♥♥♥♥ over by a friendly jeep.

If you like war-crimes and traumatic front-line combat, this game is great.

I haven't seen my family in weeks and I'm not making any friends becuase the last one I did sprayed blood over my uniform after a freindly artillery shell landed on top of him. I looted his body afterwords for his unique shotgun, which I later used to kill off the POWs we had after the battle ended.

The game doesn't have the community it deserves. It is severely undervalued and overlooked probably because of its simple appearance.

It is one of a kind game that gives very high level of satisfaction on the level of triple A game titles. The gameplay is very immersive and suitable for all types of players, and of all ages. The gameplay is not as linear as it is in big title shooter games, and truly gives you a freedom of choice in terms of approach. You will have fun regardless if you have only 15 mins of play time or all day at your disposal, I promise you this.

Now, other reviews bring attention to the lack of pvp player base, claiming that the game is "dead". Well, this may be true if you are coming straight from typical pvp environment. However, playing in co-op (which is always active) with and against large number of bots in large-scale maps, will overcome any notion of pvp in your mind if there is still any of that left after playing in co-op. In other words, the game was designed that way, so that co-op outweighs pure pvp for practical reasons, so you won't even think of it.

In conclusion: RWR is going to be in my list of top 5-10 most satisfying games I've ever played. And it is certainly worthy of your attention. I would recommend it twice if I could!

While the 'no health' system can be absurdly brutal, its also one more reason I like this game. The chances of being Rambo is Zero and relies solely on how well your team can set you up to wipe the floor with an opposing team. Tools and more with a radio at your disposal and multiple 'roles' you can setup for lets you play this game almost exactly how you might want.

Wanna be a sniper? Grab a camo suit and a rifle and grab a good spot with some binoculars for overwatch and tagging.
Wanna be a demo? Pack extra explosives and go on sabotage duty...just remember to keep your head down. Want to be a support? grab a shotgun for corridors or a mg and some cover deployers and set the perfect killbox for all those tight, highly contested spots. Since 1.25 rolled around this game has come a way from its pre 1.0 days...though one thing's definately certain...

Death could be only a bullet away.

Tons of fun to hop in for maybe an hour or two when you want something a little more laid back and casual. Its great fun blasting sabaton while storming an enemy base. The campaign is pretty good accept for one part which I'll address later. Its pretty simple you go from map to map conquering the continent. Would be cool if we saw more depth with this, maybe a commander mode? Mods are supported which always a huge plus with any game, excited to see what people come up with.

One complaint, the 'final mission' (s) in campaign suck. Your alone against many enemies and its just not fun. If you had a small team of elite troopers against more enemies that would be really cool, but being alone in this game is not a good experience.

Didn’t your mother tell you not to run with your rifle out? It’s dangerous!

Running With Rifles is a top-down, tactical shooter developed by Modulatio Games. In RWR you play as a soldier for one of the game’s three factions: Greenbelts (America), Brownpants (Russia) and the Greycollars (Germany). Most of the game’s maps see all three factions fighting each other though some of the small maps are just one on one battles.

The game’s cartoon-esque graphics are fantastic and fit really well with the game itself. They give the game the feeling that you’re playing with little toys in a sandbox. The UI is minimal, it’s big enough for you to see it and there’s all the information you need but it stays out of your way so that you can see everything on screen and effectively aim at enemies. What you see on screen also isn’t the limit of your view, if you stand still and aim off screen your view will move out slightly so you can see further (though your soldier probably won’t be on screen).

What makes RWR so special is the fact that you play as a regular soldier. Sure, once you’ve ranked up you become a little more important, you’ll even have your own squad, but you die a lot and when you die you become a new soldier (though you keep your XP). You’re going to die a lot. Even if you’re really good at the game there’ll be time where there’s a sniper on a roof you didn’t see or a tank that somehow managed to creep up on you. Dying without the ability to put up a fight in this game can be frustrating but it’s made up for by the awesome, intense firefights or the moments where you’re behind enemy lines, picking them off one by one without them figuring out where you are.

Weapons, vehicles and other equipment, while not the main focus of the game, have enough variation to remain interesting. Each faction has their own weapons and while you can unlock the weapons of the other factions by selling the weapon you want five times (enemy soldiers drop their weapons and equipment when they die) you’re going to spend most of your time using your own faction’s weapons, bought with RP (Resource Points) providing you’re a high enough rank for certain equipment. As you’d expect the factions have an assault rifle, sniper rifle, LMG etc. as well as silenced pistols and small submachine guns. Equipment ranges from frag grenades to ghillie suits as well as less exciting things such as deployable cover. Other than some small boats for specific maps, the vehicles in RWR are land vehicles. These range from common jeeps to armoured transport vehicles and tanks as well as a few others. What vehicles you’ll find (and what quantity you’ll find them in) depends on the size and location of the map. For example a small island map will have far less tanks than a large landlocked map will have.

Weapons and equipment aren’t the only thing to spend your faction’s resource points on. Above a certain rank you’ll be given a radio to use and, again depending on your rank, you’ll be able to make certain requests. Low ranking soldiers can call in small airstrikes and paratroopers while those who are higher ranking can call in more advanced support units such as tank units. While I didn’t find support units overly helpful (paratroopers are usually killed while they parachute in if there are any enemies around) I did find the airstrikes particularly useful for situations where I was pinned down by enemy forces who were a safe distance away.

Going back to basics, the game has a campaign mode as well as a quick match mode, both of which are available for multiplayer. For singleplayer, both modes allow you to fully customise the difficulty as well as choose what rank you start at, something that’s particularly good if you want to play a campaign as another faction but don’t want to start with the most basic equipment again. The campaign sees you fight on several different maps (some of which only feature one enemy faction depending on the map’s size) and once you take complete control of a map you’ll have to move on to another one by driving to an extraction point that will take you to the next location. The one thing that bothered me about this portion of the game is that, at least from the Greenbelt campaign (I haven’t played the others yet), the maps split off and some maps are only connected to one other map. What this means is that you have to backtrack through a map you already control which gets rather tedious, especially if you accidentally extract to the wrong zone. It’s not a huge issue but it certainly bothered me.

Lastly, I’ll briefly talk about controls/gunplay. There’s not much that’s noteworthy about controls since they’re very good but there is one part of the game’s controls/gunplay which manages to be a great feature and a not so great feature at the same time. You see, in RWR you have two reticles. One large one which is shows where you’re pointing with your mouse and one tiny one which shows where your bullet will actually go when you fire. The reason you have the second one is because the maps aren’t flat and there’s also lots of cover so you need to know if you’re actually going to hit. In theory, having both reticles is fantastic. The problem with this is, the second reticle is so small (it’s also a very faint white) that it’s rather difficult to see and I died a fair few times because I was straining to see the little reticle and an enemy came up and took advantage of my distraction.

Verdict

Running with Rifles is a truly awesome tactical shooter that's great for singleplayer and multiplayer despite its minor issues. Whether you’re looking for quick skirmishes or long battles, RWR has a hell of a lot to offer players.

Below is a retelling of one of my favorite moments in Running With Rifles.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Friendly player goes into bleedout beside his humvee
He's got 30 seconds to live
I sneak in, see him bleeding out surrounded by 10 enemies
Some time's passed, he might actually have 10 seconds to live
A medkit is on the floor surrounded by said enemies
I'm armed with a silenced MP5 and it's not meant for an entrenched group this size
I tell him, "hjang in"
He goes, "lol"
I set to my practiced gunplay, only firing two rounds at a time
Enemy AI retreats to cover
They can't see me in my ghillie suit
I fire at enemy reinforcements
Exposed and standing, they die quickly
Other enemies emerge from cover
I put them down quickly
I lost track of time, felt like 15 seconds - not good
Finally cleared all enemies in sight
Made a mad dash for the nearest medkit, pressed 'F' to swap my sandbags for it
He goes, "lol holy ♥♥♥♥ man"
"ikr"
Scanned the area for new hostiles
Nobody
Rushed to friendly player, he's probably going to die on me
Held the mouse button down on him for 3 precious seconds, fingers crossed that he lives
I revive him
More enemy reinforcements arrive
We are spotted
I escape to a raised area
He replaces his broken vest
He tries to take cover to reload his Desert Eagle
He is quickly brought down again - and finished off by enemies this time :(
I'm hopelessly surrounded by 6 more enemies on all sides without any cover or those sandbags
A break - some unexpected friendly reinforcements
They secure their area
I make the connection that their loud gunfire drew enemies behind me
Not fast enough - I was shot and killed in action
The reinforcements - actually two poorly-positioned AI grunts - are killed shortly thereafter
We rejoiced in my valiant efforts
"i felt like a badass right there"
He goes, "lol smoking ♥♥♥♥ers left n right"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Running With Rifles never gets old, not with moments like this.
