Summary: I got this thinking it would be okay just something to beat. Well i ended up loving it, i was suprised considering all the horrible reviews it got. The story line is okay but the combat is fun. Idk, i like it on the computer more than i like MW2 on it, but this games is garbage on the console while MW2 is way better. I enjoy calling in airstrikes and thing of that nature. The weapon work well and everything is balanced nice. I think it is a rent for sure.
Summary: It has been a while since I bought a game. So, I was looking around and noticed Operation Flash Point (OFP) along with the new Call of Duty (COD) game. I've owned and played all the COD games available (for the PC anyway). I loved the games and probably would enjoy the new one as well. COD has been a very successful series of games and with reason. However, I am a bit tired of COD's scripted, arcade experience. Sure, COD has great graphics and sound and it is fun.
Summary: Okay, the headline title is a lie. But that's the only way to get your attention. This is not an action-arcadey shooter like COD4. If you like games where you can take a million bullets and keep on living, this game is not for you. This is the closest thing to a military simulator as you can get on a console. The AI is horrible, I'll give you fellow reviewers that. They aren't as horrible as some of you make them sound, but they are less that stellar.
Summary: Terrible! I could not believe they released this. First, the single player missions are easy and really short! You can beat this game in a single sitting. Single player missions are all infantry... no tank missions, heli missions.. nothing! The AI is useless, your own men will not take cover during a firefight 90% of the time. You can snipe at enemy AI from 800m and they will not even respond. Multiplayer is useless, cannot rank up because there are NO DEDICATED servers!
Summary: I was hoping for a more Operation flashpoint original game. However what I gt was a unfinished short console port with not so great controls. To start off the game runs great and sounds sounds just as good. That is about where it ends. This game mostly has a focus for multiplayer but with horrible connection to authetication servers its hard to even log into your account.
Summary: This game does not deliver as they advertised. "Most realistic FPS ever" It's not. It was released plagued with bug's. The interface for commanding your squad is a virtual Q-Pad. Infact the game is just a Console port to PC. It doen't have Dedicated servers, Someone (you) have to host a Multiplayer game through Codemaster (server) that is down everyday usually. If you ever manage to join a game and the host drops the server kicks everyone one, obviously.
Summary: You guys giving this game a 10 are doing no one any favors. No game with this many bugs deserves a 10....END OF STORY! The multiplayer is completely broken and has no dedicated servers...in other words they are following the 360 path. Also did you notice the game sites didn't post any reviews until well after the console versions? My guess is that the pc versions were sent to the game sites IGN/ GAMESPOT/ETC. much later because they knew it had issues.
Summary: Honest review. First off, if you have no patience, keep looking. If you don't like a learning curve, keep looking. If you are a lone wolf type that cares not for team based play, please keep looking. This is NOT Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Period. I loved CODMW, took part in the 360 beta, played the game to death, but you simply cant compare the games.
Summary: Hav eyou bothered to look at the game settings? You can change the HUD realism to having a HUD to having nothing on the HUD at all and a setting inbetween. The point is to make the game appeal to more people. Hav eyou bothered to look at the game settings?

Summary: I played the original OF and it was made with realism in mind, since at the time it was partially funded by the military as a training platform, before Americas Army came out. But now it feels like an arcade port from the XBOX. I remember playing the original and having to know how to read a map, military style was part of the charm, but now, everything is waypointed on your hud changing everytime you get to a new checkpoint... lame.
