Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

Playstation Illustrated
9 March 2010
  • Excerpt: In 2001, Bohemia Interactive Studio and Codemasters released Operation Flashpoint: Coldwar Crisis . Touted as a tactical shooter/battlefield simulator, it garnered critical acclaim for it's realism and artificial intelligence, largely due to its use of the Real Virtuality engine, which at the time was also being used by the military combat simulator VBS1. An Xbox port of the game was released on the Xbox in 2005.

  • Excerpt: The single player campaign missions can be very long and time consuming, especially when you are thirty (30) minutes into a mission, catch a stray bullet and are killed. Then you must restart the mission, but dont plan on everything going the same way, because the enemy responds differently according to the way you play.

  • Conclusion: Ultimately, I think Codemasters has got a lot of great ideas and gameplay elements in OFDR, but it just needed more time. There are too many rough edges here to make this easy to recommend to everyone. Despite those drawbacks, it's still a pretty fun and rewarding game that any FPS or military game fan should check out.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising - PS3 - Review

GameZone
17 October 2009
  • Excerpt: You can’t go in without a plan. Maybe you could get away with it when facing a couple of online newbies, but when tackling the AI, strategy is a must. Whether you’re ready or not, enemy soldiers will be watching, often from within seclusion or standing so far away that you won’t even notice their presence until the first bullet is fired. By then it might be too late; this isn’t a game of instant bandages and auto-regenerating shields.

GameTrailers
13 October 2009
  • Excerpt: It's been years since Operation Flashpoint first cooked up a Cold War Crisis in 2001, but now the franchise is back on track with its first true sequel, Dragon Rising. It's looking to take the tactical sim to the next level, upgrading its Cold War tech with new weapons, new tactics, and a new theatre of war. Though the original developers have gone rogue, the series has managed a successful tour of duty thus far.
