Summary: OFP:Elite is not a shooter it is a simulator, so don't try any kind of call of duty run n gun tactics. First off you can't run and shoot at the same time. Second trying to run at an enemy will instanty get you killed. Third this game takes strategy running head on towards an enemy base will probably get you killed, or at least get half your team killed.
Summary: It's not often that one can come across a game like Operation Flashpoint: Elite. It's one of those games that is so frustrating you can't put it down. It is a game grounded in sheer realism and that is evident from the get go. There are no health bars, but your character shows damage in specific locations.
Summary: Operation Flashpoint was originally released for PC in 2001. OFP was so realistic that the US Department Of Defense wanted their own version of the game for simulation training. So, shortly after the release of OFP, the DOD got VBS1 (Virtual Battlefield Systems 1). OFP was eventually ported to the XBOX as Operation Flashpoint Elite. OFPE is essentially the same game as the PC version with the exception of the Soviet single-player campaign.
Summary: Well i have played all the Tom Clancy games from the first rainbow six and I still love playing them, but this game is different, I have played the game all the way through on the American side and the Local side, and both are great, it was hard to get out of the habit of doing the same thing everytime you got killed, if it did not work the first time try something different !
Summary: I THANKFULLY BOUGHT THIS GAME 2ND HAND, PAID AROUND £8 FOR IT AND I`M GLAD THAT WAS ALL I PAID! THIS IS BY FAR ONE OF THE WORST GAMES I HAVE HAD THE DISPLEASURE OF PLAYING! I OWN THE ORIGINAL GHOST RECON AND ITS FAR SUPERIOR TO THIS GAME CONSIDERING HOW LONG AGO GHOST RECON WAS RELEASED. THE WORDS "FALSE ADVERTISING" SPRING TO MIND, ALONG WITH POOR GRAPHICS (REAL POOR). THIS GAME IS SET IN THE COLD WAR ERA-AN IT SEEMS THE MID EIGHTIES IS WHEN THE GAME WAS DESIGNED.
Summary: Ok, many people have played the PC version (which I love) and the XBox conversion is a pretty good effort. The control system using the XBox controller is never going to be as fluid as a mouse and keyboard, but you get used to it - just give it time and practise. Many peolple who like FPS shooters complain that this is boring, crap etc but they miss the point. OFP never was like other arcade-ish FPS rehashed clones of each other.
Summary: If you enjoyed Medal of honour Do not buy this game ! However if you are looking for some realsim and you dont mind having to think from time to time compared generic a to b gameplay then grab Operation Flashpoint. Now ! Yes that was an order soldier !
Summary: This must surely be the worst game I have ever played on any console, let alone the Xbox. How anyone can rate this game is beyond me. If this was 1930s Germany, it wouldnt have been books being burnt, but all copies of this game, the shops selling it, and the makers! I have never played the PC version but had read enough reviews and spoken to enough people who had played it, to want see it released on the Xbox.
Summary: I just had to review this game as on the pc its a 5 star plus game, sorry never played the x box version but I believe its the same . It is a fantastic game I,m still playing it after 3 years nothing has ever bettered it for gameplay and realism if you dont like this then maybe you would prefer a disney title, enough said !
