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: 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.
Summary: First off, the game is good. I like to think of this as a more beginner simulation game because you are limited on just what you can do. The controls are a lot easier to learn than ArmA II but it felt like less of a sim to me.
Summary: I've been playing Dragon Rising since it was available in the US. I won't repeat the backstory of Dragon Rising and all the ways that it fell short of it's potential. If you're buying this game just for the single-player campaign you will probably be disappointed.
Summary: The graphics are GREAT! Gameplay is difficult, to say the least. One option missing is the ability to save a game at any chosen point so you don't have to start from the beginning of a checkpoint and fight your way to where you had already reached. Otherwise, I'd have rated it 5 star.
Summary: A challenging Combat Sim! Not for the Casual FPS type This is a Shooter for Hardcore Combat junkes.get the DLC updater And you will get many free missions From the comunity.some may be buggy But most are not.It's not a perfect Game...but worth it IMO. AT Gunner has been eliminated! SEMPER FI!
Summary: The game is difficult and requires some tactics, so run & gunners need not apply. A lot of people seem disappointed by the game, but maybe that's because they're too used to the arcade like CoD or they're looking for a super simulator, in which case ARMA I & II should suit their needs.
Summary: Definitely more towards ARMA than BF or COD, but more fun than ARMA and COD. Let me explain why... Where ARMA is a clunky awkward game, OFP DR is a smoother RL type shooter. Granted you have to stop moving to issue commands and switch weapons, but it doesn't seem to take forever to to do these...
Summary: This is a pretty good game, if you like games that use real tactics and game plans instead of running through with guns blazing going as fast as you possibly can , because if you try that your more likly to get shot and killed. But over all I would say its a 8.5/10.
