Summary: I read the reviews on Amazon, Gamespot and IGN. I trust the reviews by the latter 2 more than Amazon when it comes to video games. I too was a big fan of the first Operation Flashpoint because of it's extensive playing field and game play. So much that I bought others of the same series. I still like the first one better. The AI is ok and so are the graphics. However, OFDR is still a lot of fun, I do not play online. but I do play network with my grandkids and my son.
Summary: Great but not as great as the original title, less vehicles access, but great game play at few times, very immersive...A little bit less work in terms scripts and story telling set up "It's not what we are being told, it's mostly what we are playing as a story, and so I guess it is to find the good balance between information and storytelling game play...
Summary: This game was a pleasant surprize. I went into it thinking it was more of a role player or strategy game but after many hours in realize it has all of those and more. For some reason codemasters the devs stopped this one after the Red River series...still scratching my noggin over that one..
Summary: I bought this game hoping it would be a long awaited sequel to the original Operation Flashpoint game but I should have realized that a different group of programmers wrote this game and it shows. The controls are obviously derived from the console version, which I found quite akward.
Almost perfect, WAY better than it is given credit for being by all of the CoD kids!

Summary: Amazing, finally a realistic modern warfare shooter that is not over-priced like ARMA 2. Seriously, I'm getting so SICK of CoD-style Rambo-type gameplay where the player can take 500 hits! Great game, and it arrived a week before schedule!
Summary: This is a fun game. Realize it is a simulation type game, not arcade style such as COD series or Halo. This game requires more than twitch reflexes, you must strategize and think out each encounter. Fun for simulation buffs, arcade buffs look elswhere.
