Great Realistic Shooter

I just recently rented Red River, and I thought the game was unique, different and fun. Unlike other shooters like COD or BF, the combat in this game is far more realistic. Here I will give my pros and cons of the game:

Pros:
-realism. When entering combat, u cant expect to run out in the open field and take out 40 men single-handedly, u need to actually take cover, and pick off guys 1 by 1 while trying to conserve ammo.

-graphics. The graphics are a huge improvement from the last game (dragon rising)

-AI. The AI in the game are great, enemies will try to flank you and catch u off guard while the armored vehicles will come straight at your squad.

-customization. You can pick from 4 different character classes: grenadier (explosives man), rifleman (standard infantry), scout (sniper), and autorifleman (heavy machinegunner). Each of these classes you can individually level up to unlock new guns and scopes for your own customization. Also, you earn medals for doing missions and the better the medal, the more points you are rewarded. Bronze - 1. Silver - 2. Gold - 3. And you use these points to upgrade your character, for example how fast you sprint or your accuracy when using an M16 or M4.

-Hardcore Mode. This is as hard as it gets, u have nothing on your screen except your gun and where your looking at. You don't know where enemies are at, which way is north or if it's a friendly or not. You must fully rely on what u see. Very fun but very difficult.

Cons:

-Single Player. This game was undoubtedly made for co op, since you are a squad leader, it's easier to talk to your friends then tell the computer what to do. Everything in the game is co op accessible.

-Game modes. Aside from the campaign, there are 4 different mode u can play which are really fun but they only give you 2 maps for each mode.

-Knox. I love what Knox says because he always says funny demeaning things towards you but he talks way too much.

Overall:
Very gun game and worth rent. Rating: 9.5

This game is very realistic based shooter, you have to shoot, move, and communicate with you team mates if you wana survive in this game. Aside from poor AI (team mates) and the boring open back humvee rides this game is fun and exhilarating, get three friends and the game goes from good to superb. Over all the graphics are good a few meh moments, the gun play is more arcadey then drgaon rising but still feels realistic. The Staff Sergant gets annoying but is helpfull in the game, if you keep your guys out of harms way then you will have no problem with this game and have a good time playing it.

This game does not feel like I have played it before. That is why its good. Its original and not a COD copy. I am sure all the people who rated this game 1 are COD fan boys. This game has pretty good graphics but the game shines when you start a fire fight and you're getting shot from all positions. The sound is good on this game and the guns sound realistic unlike in other games... (COD). I know I kept this short but trust me, you want to try this out if you're not one of the 13 year old cool kids who constantly play COD and make YouTube videos about it.
