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: 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.
Summary: This is by far the best FPS out there. I've played Alien Versus Predator 2 Ghost Recon Medal Of Honor but this is by far the best. It's extremely realistic. the game includes the original and both expansion packs. THe graphics kick and the weapons are sweet. WHen u play the game you actually feel like ur in the military. you got ur captain yelling u orders bullets zipping by and tanks being destroyed. Best FPS out there.
Summary: Operation Flashpoint is a rare treasure. Everyone has heard of games that "try and do too many things at once" or are "over-ambitious". In this game you will play the role of soldier, commander, Black Ops, prisoner, utilize jeeps, APC's, tanks, helicopters and even an A-10! -- in a huge, seamless world roughly the size of Vvardenfell in Morrowind. Very ambitious indeed! And yet, Operation Flashpoint pulls it all off rather nicely.
