It's no surprise to see that Red Orchestra has done so well in the Epic Games/Nvidia Make Something Unreal Contest. Take a look at the screenshots and watch the video (Low Res|High Res) for yourself and you might think you're looking at the next World War 2 shooter coming out of an established development house. The maps are generally impressive and most definitely immersive, the weapons are modeled well and fully animated, and the sound is crisp and professional.
