Summary: I will say this is an amazing fps combat sim. The level of realism is set above and beyond most anything else released. If you are looking for the next thing to top COD-style fast action, this is not what you're looking for. Yes, I like most other people am looking very forward to the Modern Warfare 2 release, but not every fps needs to be compared to it again and again. This game is very simular to the original Rainbow Six (non-Vegas) or SOCOM from the PS2 era.
Summary: I purchased a PS3 mainly because of Netflix and HD movies. But the gaming option is a nice plus. Honestly I don't play games since years because I just don't have enough time. And some games are addictive, real time wasters. On the end, years after playing games you usually will only remember a few of them. When I picked the PS3 I did it with over 15 games, some shooters.
Summary: First let me start with what you wont find in this game 1. Enemies popping out everytime from everywhere waiting to be shot 2. Easily getting revived when shot on whichever part of your body What you will find in this game is The closest you would get to actual war simulation. As if you are on the battlefield. You need to be aware of your surroundings..It makes you appreciate your health and guard it better than most other shooters around.
Summary: I'm currently playing through Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, I'm on level 3 and i am getting my head kicked in at many a turn but I'm enjoying it. The reason for my enjoyment of suffering is because this isn't an average run n' gun fps this a war simulation and very fun, I constantly find myself thinking my strategy to take the smarter and safe approach to keep me and my men safe even though death lurks from any angle at any time.
Summary: This Game is Outstanding it will take you into the Tactical real feel of war also go where you like with free range Play , this game is not a run out and shoot it up game you will need to think How often do you want to die? For Multiplayer online you should truely use a HeadSet, Earforce P21 [...

Summary: Let me begin by saying this..."Flashpoint" is not a run and gun game. More accurately described as "one shot, one kill". The realism is amazing, being tactical will make you successful. I have yet to complete the game, but far enough into it to provide a fair review. If you enjoy strategy games that offers a lot of action and realism with the weapons used, then I would highly recommend this game. I am anxious to complete this game.
Summary: Flashpoint is and always will be the best infantry sim ever created. I played the original Flashpoint on PC and was blown away with the realism. When they released it for the Xbox I was skeptical and found it to be junk compared to the PC version. I played Flashpoint 2 on the PS3 and must say that it reminds me of the old Flashpoint (there's nothing better). I went back and rented this after they told me to get call of duty 2 because it was better than this.
Summary: Reading some of the negative reviews and then playing this game I almost wonder if we're dealing with the same piece of software. Yes a few more save points would be nice but apart from that I really feel this game is something close to a masterpiece. No COD MW style scripting where you sit back shooting enemies by the dozen until you cross a magical line on the map and they all of a sudden disappear.
