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. The feel of playing in a huge open world is there. Some missions on the Everon island are so picturesque I pause for a few minutes just to look around.
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. Bohemia Interactive has made decent ARMA games since, but they were never quite as good, particularly the singleplayer campaigns have not been as good as in this game.
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!! Completely open World that lets you approach objectives as you see fit - wonderful 1st/3rd person gunplay - HUNDREDS of vehicles (inc user made MODS) from pedal-bikes to F16 Jetfighters, from inflatable dinghies...
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. This game is extremely unique in the fact that it masters single player campaign, masters expansion packs, and masters a co-op that in combination with player inspired custom missions (made...
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 your a hardcore COD and Halo shooter fan, you will probably hate this game for one simply reason..
Summary: This game is great value for money! Rather than modern games which are quite violent and seem more for boys, this one is more about mentally testing yourself. Each task is different and challenging. The graphics may not be as good as xbox but we love it ! We lost our first game which we bought years ago and just had to get another copy it's that good !
Excerpt: i think that what shoul be added on a game for totale perfectness is , when a guy is givin attention to the enemie (A) . you should focus more in pointing machine ganner on the global angle to where enmie (b) is hidden now with bushes or hays , ther should be a global test to do do that .
Excerpt: Um simulador de guerra sem igual. ?? só isso que podemos descrever de Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis. Apesar de ser um jogo da velha geração, com gráficos mais simples, ele bate muitos simuladores de guerra atualmente. Seu conceito, sua participação e sua estratégia são fundamentais durante uma partida Multiplayer. Como em todo bom jogo de simulação de guerra, o trabalho em equipe é fundamental no jogo.
Excerpt: Vad är det för spel? Det är ett shooter/krigsspel för PC från 2001. (Wikipedia kallar det för en taktisk FPS (förstapersonsskjutare) och stridssimulator och det stämmer mycket väl. Något som långt ifrån stämmer in på alla shooterspel.) Till spelet finns två expansioner. Detta är spelet utan några expansioner, dvs själva grundkampanjen.
Pros: Extremt spännande,mycket svårt,realism,kräver att man tänker,stor frihet,lång hållbarhet .
Cons: Passar inte alla,sådär grafik,tålamodsprövande,inget actionsspel .
