The war is over.

Game Revolution
18 January 2006
  • Conclusion: Operation Flashpoint: Elite is simply an old, crippled vet that should have been left to its episodes of Judge Judy and servings of lime Jell-O in the gaming retirement home. In its prime, it was a solid, proud shooter that began one of the best trends in modern PC gaming. Here's hoping Codemasters lets this soldier rest in peace.
  • Pros: Lots of content
  • Cons: Ruined by horrible delivery, Obtuse objectives, Ancient, glitchy engine, Worst sound ever

Operation Flashpoint: Elite

Game Revolution
18 January 2006
  • Excerpt: The war is over. Back in the day, Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis (developed by Bohemia Interactive) was a nifty first-person shooter featuring huge, open maps filled with vehicles and enemies both online and off. Instead of running down corridors blasting foes as a one-man army, you'd hump through big, realistic environments assaulting villages and enemy installations with bands of A.I.-controlled brothers or human players.
  • Pros: Lots of content, Ruined by horrible delivery, Obtuse objectives, Ancient, glitchy engine, Worst sound ever

Operation Flashpoint: Elite

  • Summary: Operation Flashpoint Elite is a classic PC title that has been around for quite a few years now. This game has finally arrived on the Xbox, and Codemasters has tried to maintain a lot of the PC games features while adding many new features, and bringing us Xbox Live play. This game brings back the classic gameplay complete with the sprawling environments and all of the vehicles to roam around in.

Operation Flashpoint Elite

Gamecell
4 December 2005
  • Conclusion: This is perhaps the “Microsoft Flight Simulator” of the First/Third Person Shooter genre, a brilliant concept even 4 years on, but I can’t help feeling that maybe developers Bohemia were just too ambitious for their own good in terms of scale and scope. Operation Flashpoint Elite is a potential classic, handicapped by a jerky frame rate and a lack of precision in vital areas.
  • Pros: Loads of atmosphere means you really feel you’re part of a larger conflict, The landscapes are huge, and you can see for miles, You can drive or fly, vehicles!, A real ‘sandbox’ military game
  • Cons: Horrendous frame rate, The graphics ain’t that hot, You’ll spend a large part of the game just running around trying to understand barked orders or waiting for something to happen, It’s very easy to die

Emperor: Schlacht um Dune

Spieletipps.de
30 November 2005
  • Summary: Sicherlich, "Emperor: Schlacht um Dune" kann nicht gerade mit großen Neuerungen glänzen, trotzdem hat mich das Spiel schon nach sehr kurzer Zeit in seinen Bann gezogen. Das liegt vor allem an Westwoods Stärke, den genialen Zwischensequenzen. Wenn Spiele atmosphärisch so gut gemacht sind, wie das bei "Emperor: Schlacht um Dune" der Fall ist, kann ich nicht genug davon bekommen, auch wenn sich spielerisch nicht viel verändert.

Operation Flashpoint: Elite

Spieletipps.de
30 November 2005
  • Summary: Anfangs muss ich gestehn war ich doch recht abgeturnt von diesem Game. Eine grafisch nicht mehr ganz zeitgemäße Optik und dann noch die etwas schwammige Steuerung legten mir doch die eine oder andere Sorgenfalte auf meine Stirn. Doch irgendwie bekam "OPF" dann doch noch die Kurve und zauberte mir mit zunehmender Spielzeit immer und immer mehr ein Lächeln auf mein retroverliebtes Taktikshooter-Gesicht.

Expert Review

21 November 2005
  • Conclusion: 07 /20 Moche, vieux, injouable ou presque, Opération Flashpoint : Elite ne possède que très peu d’arguments pour lui. D’autant plus que la version PC est disponible depuis plus de quatre ans avec son add-on et ne coûte qu’une poignée d’euros. Pour ceux qui ne disposent pas de PC, pourquoi ne pas tenter l’expérience, à condition bien entendu d’être persévérant et de passer outre les grosses lacunes.
  • Pros: La diversité des missions, Une durée de vie très importante, Des maps assez grandes, Présence d’un mode Xbox live
  • Cons: Graphismes horribles, Cher pour un vieux titre !, Jouabilité mal pensée, Une animation catastrophique, Absence de joueurs sur le Live
