Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising reviewed (360, PS3)

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: After a long wait and a lot of hype surrounding the game, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising has been released.  How does the sim style shooter stand up to MG scrutiny and how good is the conversion of a traditional PC game to a console. It has to be said that today’s MTV generation do not appreciate games as they should be.  Stuck in a rut of fast paced FPS shooters that can sometimes make your eyes bleed and a sense of feeling that war is how it plays on the screen.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Those who have become accustomed to running and gunning in Call of Duty, Halo and just about any of the many other console FPS lining the shelves, will get a rude awakening if they apply the same mindset when they’re playing Codemasters Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is a much truer representation of war than most console games, so obviously running around and dropping hundreds of enemies like an action hero isn’t going to work...

  • Excerpt: Geeks and fanboys love to argue and one of the longest standing of these ‘debates’ has to be that of the PC  vs the console.  The Geeks will tell us (in l33t spk) that their displays are sharper and their controls more accurate. The Fanboys will then reply (IN CAPPS!!1) that consoles don’t crash and you can play whilst lounging in your favorite armchair. It’s all pretty daft when it comes down to it though, after all one person’s meat is another person’s terrorism.

  • Excerpt: We are a plankton. We live in the sea. We eat and grow, eat and grow…. Amoeba-chomping in a microcosmic ocean. Its a simple yet addictive premise that sets up the game that was recently snapped up by Sony for both the PSP and PS3.  Yet the original (and free) flash game is still one of the most unique experiences around.

  • Excerpt: Something tells me that a lot of people are going to be surprised by Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. Codemasters has loudly proclaimed that their new game will take players "as close to war as they'll ever want to get," but secretly part of me doubts whether most gamers will know what they're getting into. Call me a cynic, but I suspect that more than a few people will pick up this up in the mistaken belief that it's an alternative to Modern Warfare 2.

Highly realistic military shooter is violent, bloody, gory.

Common Sense Media
30 January 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is a very violent first-person shooter that strives to recreate with extreme authenticity the experience of modern war. Players handle a variety of realistic weapons, characters grunt and bleed profusely when hit by bullets, and enemies can be torn apart when struck by heavy weaponry, such as mines and artillery.

Hooked Gamers
27 January 2010
  • Conclusion: If you are a huge fan of games like Call of Duty you may well feel that Dragon Rising is not for you – especially early on, before you fully get accustomed to the game style required. But given a bit of time, the tactics and game style will feel quite natural. The controls used to direct your squad are quite simple, relying on a tiered menu system, whilst the extra functions such as nigh-vision goggles are easily accessed.

  • Conclusion: If you prefer the open-world tactical approach to military battle games over the more hollywood-esque shooters like Halo and CoD, Operation Flashpoint may just be for you. As always, if you've already played, leave some commentary so readers can see a more comprehensive picture.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

Thunderbolt Games
7 November 2009
  • Excerpt: War, they say, is hell. It’s noisy, disorientating, brutal and confusing – an assault on the senses. Yet in many games, this atmosphere of extreme danger is a thin veneer hiding an essentially linear narrative. A path has already been chosen and little thought is required besides how to kill the enemy in front of you. Operation Flashpoint is different though.
