Operation Flashpoint: Red River

  • Conclusion: This game is too CoD for the tac shooter crowd and too tac shooter for the CoD crowd. This is a poorly designed, awfully made game that probably spent more money acquiring the licenses for the songs that play during the intro/outro sequences than on the actual game development.

  • Excerpt: The time that realistic FPS games could only be played on PC is long past us. Amongst others, Arma and Operation Flashpoint brought the experience to consoles. Of those two, the latter has a new episode with Red River, but it’s equally clear that the genre still has a long way to go before we can...

  • Conclusion: The 50-cal doesn't work on helicopters? That's what it's for!
  • Pros: Calling in an airstrike on a wave of rushing PLA and watching them scatter.
  • Cons: Watching my team standing around, unable to respond to a rocket attack.

  • Excerpt: It’s very clear in Operation Flashpoint: Red River that Codemasters were trying to retain the gritty realism of their past titles, whilst simultaneously making them more accessible and fun for the masses, well, they succeeded.

  • Summary: Trudging through the desert just got even more painful.
  • Pros: Impressive voice acting; You're able to customize your soldier's load out before a mission
  • Cons: Graphics are subpar; gameplay is slow and agonizing; spend way too much time healing yourself or your teammates than actually participating in a firefight.

  • Summary: Operation Flashpoint: Red River does its best to put you in the boots of a Marine Corps infantry fire team leader in the midst of both counterinsurgency operations and a conventional battlefield, showcasing the intense realism and sweeping environments that the OpFlash series is known for.

  • Excerpt: Operation Flashpoint: Red River is a game stuck between identities. While its ambitions as a simulation are nowhere near as exacting or disturbingly mundane as ARMA 2 ’s, it’s also too demanding and tactical to be compared to the flamboyant action that makes up the play in Call Of Duty .

11 June 2011
  • Excerpt: For all the hoo-ha about switching Operation Flashpoint to a more action-orientated position in its third iteration - the looming spectre of Modern Warfare's success perhaps a little bit too much for Codemasters to resist - I still found myself face-down in a puddle of my own blood within six...

Operation Flashpoint: Red River Review

G4
1 June 2011
  • Summary: With a focus on being the most realistic military shooter on the market, Operation Flashpoint: Red River offers fans a far more strategic alternative to their typical Call of Duty. With its modern-day setting and team-based gameplay, the game aims to make you feel like a marine.
  • Pros: Excellent cooperative play, Huge missions with scoping vistas, Plenty of scaling options to make the game as blisteringly realistic (or not) as you want
  • Cons: Graphic glitches and low-res textures, Frequently buggy and terrible AI, Absurdly clichéd dialogue and overlong between-mission sequences, Poor checkpoint layouts
