Rising Storm is an amazing multiplayer game. If you're looking for a fun single player experience, you're going to have a bad time.

The learning curve can be steep; it is not anything like Call of Duty or Halo. You have to think before you act, or you will be killed quickly. It plays more like IRL paintball game than a typical video game: movement, teamwork, and situational awareness are much more important than twitchy reflexes and memorizing the maps.

It has very realistic weapon mechanics including

- high damage (one or two bullets can kill you!)
- ballistic drop (you have to adjust your sights for long range shots)
- reloading (method differs for weapons: stripper clips, box magazines, or single cartridges depending on what you're shooting)

There is (as of this writing) a thriving and friendly community of players online. People are friendly and talkative, because teamwork is key. Grab a microphone and hop on a server!

Graphics are a bit dated, but that in no way detracts from the experience. If anything, it's a bonus: it will run smoothly on even older hardware, and with an incredible number of players (usually 32 vs. 32) connected to the same server.

The other reviewer is totally right, though: there's no single player in Rising Storm. Furthermore the single player in the predecessor, Red Orchestra 2, is TERRIBLE. It's really just a multiplayer match with bots that have terrible AI. It's clearly an afterthought, and really only good for learning the basic game mechanics. Play it long enough that you can figure out what the different weapons do, and how to throw grenades without killing yourself or your teammates ;-). Then go play multiplayer.

If you're looking for an amazing multiplayer game, look no further. I'd give this game six stars if I could. It's a WONDERFULLY refreshing break from the typical AAA shooter like CoD or Battlefield.

Only multi-player, I buy a game for the game, Multi-player to me is just a something that comes with the game. Thought I found a WWII to play. If I had know there no single play I would have NEVER bought! I installed played it once 30 minutes to me a useless game!
