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: 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: 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: 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 !
Summary: I looked forward to this games' release since first reading about it 18 months beforehand. I had never played the PC version so did not know what to expect. At first I was a little dissapointed with the graphics. The movement of your soldier as he walks/runs etc. left a lot to be desired. I played it offline for a while and took some time to master the controls and command menu, they are not COMPLICATED, but there is a lot to learn.
Summary: If you remember the original PC version of this game you may recall the fact that your graphic's card could never cope with it and that complicated controls hindered in-battle dexterity. In fact you yearned for ease of play and full graphics, careful for what you wish for,... Despite the age of the game it more than holds it's own against more modern equivalents,..
Summary: When I bought this game last week, I had my doubts. For a start there was not much publicity and the price tag was low. Well all i can say this is the best game I have bought this year. Forget about the major releases from a certain big boy (Who lets face sells the same games every year, with the intention of being user friendly too your grandmother) This is what wargaming is all about, I actually went into Mission editor first.
Summary: It's Too hope they Debugged it and added lot of the extras of the pc version ,In my opinion This game is one of the best war-simulation first person Tactical shooter Ive ever played Not only is the tactical aspect of the game very high The A.I isnt too bad either,not too forget the online option wich is probably gonna blow most x-box gamers away,only thing I didnt like bout the pc version and I hope they changed this was the way the heli's flew In O.F.P your more free to...
Summary: This is simply the best game(of its type) out its not without its flaws in the pc format but they are not worth mentioning here . This game will sort the real game players from the rest its a totally involving experience as real as it gets as a war game and as close as you ever want to get to the action .Some comment that its too difficult, but thats said because they have never played an as near as possible real war game, its not hard to play just rewarding when when...
Summary: Operation Flashpoint is quite possibly the best game ever made. the game sets you as an American soldier during the Cold war on a group of fictional Islands. The game follows lots of soldiers, a foot soldier, a tank commander, Black ops and a pilot. You will be gripped throughout this amazing game and once you've completed all the missions why not try your hand at the easy to use and very fun Mission Editor where you can make almost every scenario you ever dreamed of.
