Summary: I remember boarding a T-80 tank as a gunner and just sitting there. Looking at the photorealistic (back then) interior of the tank. The controls, the compartments, the guages (that didn't move), the breech, the optical sight, the fire controls, the other compartments. It was beautiful.
Summary: Probably the best game I have ever played (and I have played well over 100 games since starting with SimCity 2000). When it came out, the story was epic, graphics were epic (back in 2001), the sound and music was amazing, and the realism was a revolution for PC gaming. Years ahead of its time.
Summary: The most realistic military game ever. I loved the game mechanics, the realistic AI. There is too much to say. I replayed this game over 8 times. I think the character models(especially the hands) look like they were made of wood. The facial animations are good however.
Summary: It's the middle of 2012, and I just rebooted and played all three OpF games again - CWC, Red Hammer and Resistance - and it still, for me, is the best gaming experience I've had. Contrary to what many say, I still feel the graphics stack up - particularly the distance rendering.
Summary: I know that METACRITIC is strewn with user reviews giving any old mediocrity 10 out of 10 (often tactically deployed to balance out the also utterly unjust Zeros.) Well, this game is worth 12 out of 10 and is (IMO) the very best FPS/Military Shooter you can get!!
Summary: A thinking game. Not just a run and gun FPS. If you have a good knowledge of military tactics but not world class reflexes, than this could be the game for you. You not only have to stay alive throughout missions but keep an eye out for your squad members and be the leader they need.
Summary: Operation Flashpoint was a stunner when it was released, but for anyone who hasn't played it and wants to get into now, this review is for you. Firstly, the graphics aren't exactly what they used to be back in 2001, so get ready for a whopping change if your coming from modern shooters, secondly, if...
Summary: For once, here is a FPS which would really look good in a virtuall reality headset. While playing other shooters, you get full of yourself and run around shooting everything without really thinking to see if it's dead, because you know it is. In OFP, its alot more real.
