Summary: I do like this game. Good graphics, nice setups, realistic scenarios and open space to figure it out. However, I found it disheartening to go to all of the trouble to figure out how to do something and work hard at it, only to die with one or two shots, then need to start all over. Not my idea of fun. I'm not a soldier. I just wanna have fun.
Summary: You can see the seeds of things to come in this game. Still a classic. The one that started it all more or less like Deus Ex. It seems the developers somehow got themselves in some sort of brouhaha and each went his own way with Codemasters eventually pulling out all together, the final result was ArmA. There are a lot of loyal followers of the Operation Flashpoint series that continue to create missions to this day with patches, mods and add ons. In the IL-2 vein.
Summary: Got this one along with Dragon Rising and haven't finished DR yet and lemme tell ya I really like DR so I'll have to have an update on this one down the road to give it a fair and unbalanced review. What I did see of it for the few minutes I have played it am looking forward to it. It does take a Game for Windows LIVE account to activate it and to be honest I had to uninstall it the first time and reinstall it as it was giving me a Windows Error message but that seemed...
Summary: I really like this game but feel the language could use a little bit of revision. I spent 3 years in the Marine Corps back in 1953 and don't recall the language being that bad, our language was not exactly saintly but not this severe, Very good game in my opinion though.
Summary: I have a copy of this game on XBOX 360 as well but decided that I don't want to waste anymore money on that platform because I just lost my fourth unit to RRD. This game didn't get enough credit from reviews. It doesn't match the expansive world that is the original OFP, and lacks technical features from both OFP and the ArmA series. It still offers a decent amount of challenge. Hardcore is the only way to go.
Summary: Well, Dragon Rising is not exactly like the original but it still is a great game in its own right. I liked the fact that the original used GameSpy as a server for multiplayer and there was also the option of first or third person views. Dragon Rising is only a first person shooter and used its own server for multiplayer. In game action is much the same as the original. The Graphics are still very good and maps are a bit different but still miles and realistic movements.
Summary: This 1st person shooter makes a new era in this kind of games. Maybe not so graphically espectacular as Medal of Honor or similars, but with realistic ballistics and weapons. A single shot at 1000m can kill you and the weight of ammo and weapons is limited, so you can not behave as a Bradley tank as you do in MOHAA, for example. The enviroment is very big, with a tactical use of maps and obstacles, and there is not so much pleople as in other shooters.
Summary: I have played the original OFP and the Red Hammer expansion all the way through. There is nothing I've played in the first person shooter catagory that even comes close to this game for pure realistic military action. The only reason I give this game 4 stars and not 5 is because of the difficulty of online play. A few very fun aspects of the game: -Awsome, engrosing story line. -Good graphics, exellent effects. The graphics are good. Vehicle modeling is well done.
