Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Review

Zeitgeist Review
11 March 2010
  • Summary: Overall, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is a pretty decent game, it’s just incredibly frustrating because of how difficult it is to actually see the enemies, let alone hit them. If you don’t like realistic, hard, simulation shooters, this is not going to be a game for you. Personally, I don’t enjoy games that make me want to punch someone out of frustration, but I know there are some of you die-hards out there that inevitably will actually love this one.

  • Conclusion: Xbox 360 gamers can add an extra point to the score because of the lack of technical issues which adds a noticeable limp to the PS3 version. That and an awful story aside, this is still a wild ride of a game that you should experience. The fighting is much deeper and more enjoyable then games like the recent Darksiders or Brütal Legend . It’s right up there with Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 as one of those tough games that when played right, makes you feel like a gaming badass.

  • Conclusion: Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is not a game for everyone. Its high degree of challenge and tactical gameplay is for well-versed, patient, hardcore players. More casual players, even Modern Warfare junkies, need not apply unless you understand that the realistic experience offered in this title is entirely different than what you're used to.

  • Conclusion: Having been quite a fan of the original Operation Flashpoint (even though I have to confess to be pretty terrible at actually playing it), I was more than a little excited to see its "sequel", or rather a game that aims to take that title's unique atmosphere and give it a makeover, land on my doorstep.

  • Excerpt: Perhaps the best thing you can say about Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is that there isn't anything quite like it available for console systems. This descendent of Bohemia Interactive Studio's realistic tactical military shooter for PCs is unique for how it deploys into your living room. Previously, you had to sit at a desk to experience this brand of long-range, one-shot-kill, roam-the-countryside shooter.

  • Conclusion: One could get the sense that Dragon Rising is mired in a quagmire of bugs, unintuitive menus and bad AI…and it is. The realism is unquestionable; the run and gun gameplay found in Call of Duty will not work. Only with careful planning and smart tactics can players come away from a successful mission unscathed.
  • Pros: Realism leads to intense firefights; extremely fun multiplayer; good number of weapons and vehicles to use.
  • Cons: Bugs; poor visuals; terrible AI.

  • Excerpt: Grab your ILBE, because your going In Country Marine! The radio traffic came in for the new AO, and it's Lima Charlie. Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is one hell of a tactical simulator with real world USMC tactics in mind. It's an open world and mission have several objectives or mission points that can be handled in any order the player deems fit.
