This historically accurate and realistic game aimed primarily at multiplayer combat has its fans all over the world and has already received many awards.

Official game description: Fight in the theatre of war that changed the world forever. Battle alongside your compatriots on some of the most inhospitable environments of the Eastern Front in Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. RO places you in the most realistic WWII first-person multi-player combat to date on the PC, allowing the player to fight through some of the most intense combat of the war. You can play as infantry, using a wide range of infantry weapons, or crew one of the many armoured combat vehicles available in the game, from half-tracks all the way through to the most famous German and Soviet heavy tanks. You can engage the enemy with everything from your bayonet at close quarters up to the massive 122mm cannon on the Soviet IS-2. And if that isn't enough, find an officer and a radio to call in thunderous artillery strikes to shake the enemy loose.

King's Bounty – Most Wanted 2008

King's Bounty: The Legend became one of the twenty most anticipated games of 2008 according to the Game world navigator magazine.

"First of all, the nominee is direct successor of a super popular game that was the foundation of the famous HoMM series. We heard nothing about the good old King's Bounty for 18 years and finally the successor of the old school genre appeared. Secondly, members of the development team already did two world-renowned games - Space Rangers and Space Rangers 2: The Rise of the Dominators. That is why The Legend has good chances to become a perfect game. Moreover it is full of original features and boasts good balance between role-playing, strategy, adventure, fascinating quests and a classic battle mode. So we will certainly wait for King's Bounty: The Legend to be released", - says the text.
