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: Are you in to realistic military games? Have you logged over 40 hours into Ghost Recon? Have you played Socom: U.S Navy Seals at your friends house more times than he has? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will love this game. When you start up this game, you will proboly notice that the graphics aren't that good. That is the only flaw about this game. In 2001 this game was realeased on the PC, and it was great.
Summary: I bought this game a couple weeks before Christmas hoping it would sufice my appetite for a good first person shooter(at least until Christmas rolled around). My first and immediate complaints are the horrible graphics and sound. Graphics look as though the game was actually made during the Cold War and the voice overs are monotonous and knda goofy. The guns sound like cap guns and I've noticed no echoes. The controls are choppy and hard to get used to.
Summary: Operation Flashpoint looked interesting to me at first. The screenshots on the back of the box looked nice and it seemed to have the aspects of a military shooter that I might like, such as Medal of Honor Allied Assault. When I first started the training mission, I got a look at the gameplay itself. The graphics aren't the best, but that is never enough to turn me away from a game. However, I couldn't get over the horrible looking face models of my soldiers.
Summary: Operation Flashpoint was one of the best military games ever to come out for PC, and this is pretty much just a direct port of that game over to Xbox. So, if you have already played all the missions on PC, they're all here, unchanged on the Xbox version, so you might be a little bored with it Other than that, this game is perfect.
Summary: Sometimes there is more than one enemy at 3 O'clock. ;-) Considering the fact that the terrains included are FIVE 12 kilometer x 12 kilometer (or about 8 mile x 8 mile) completely unique islands where having skill at reading a topographical map is a distinct advantage, the graphics are excellent.
Summary: This game has got to have the worst graphics I have ever seen. Ive seen n64 graphics better then this. Its a very bad game and tries to be realistic but if repeating everything twice in the game is realistic then it wins that award. What do you mean your probably saying? Well when one of your fellow squad members says something he constantly says it over and over. All you hear is enemie 3 clock. enemie 3 clock! got him!got him! Dont even look at this game on the shelf.
