Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is a game about a fictitious conflict on one of the Sakhalin islands, a conflict that is in danger of erupting onto a global scale.

Operation Flashpoint: Red River
You’ll play as one of four distinct and complimentary classes in a Marine Fireteam – Grenadier, Scout, Rifleman and Automatic Rifleman - as you embark on an epic campaign. Take on huge sandbox battlefields in the new setting of Tajikistan, a geopolitical hotspot bordered by Afghanistan and China. Face the unpredictable threat of all-new insurgent enemies and the might of the world’s largest Army, the Chinese PLA. Use authentic tactics on your own initiative in solo or in four player drop-in, drop-out co-op campaign.
Great Squad Based GameplayPlatoonKiller | Sept. 25, 2013 | See all PlatoonKiller's reviews »
I have played both games and must say that I quite enjoyed the squad based combat. Overall I would say the game is a good buy but not as good as other games you've probably seen. If you have 3 buddies definitely pick this game up, get your headset, some snacks, and get ready for a great game time. Graphics are modest, audio up to par, and fairly entertaining game play and controls. There is nothing like the feeling of being pinned down by large amounts of enemy fire while having a friend (or AI) sneak around the corner and gun down enemies from behind. Game is a great thrill.
Has a few meritsMikester7 | Sept. 9, 2013 | See all Mikester7's reviews »
In most cases in the past, the newer Operation Flashpoint games have been far too expensive to recommend for the hours it will give you. However, at a low price I can recommend it, especially Dragon Rising as their campaigns do tend to give quite a bit of enjoyment when played co-op. Dragon Rising certainly has the better campaign and nails the difficulty, but when I played it, it was a little buggy. Red River isn't awful, but seems to have been dumbed down to add a story that in the end was pretty poor.
Neither games have much longevity and are shadows of the original Operation Flashpoint and are miles behind the superior ARMA series.
Awesome tactical shootertomdoughnut | Aug. 7, 2013 | See all tomdoughnut's reviews »
This game is a strategic and much slower game then other games that folks tend to play of this genre. But that said, it's a great game. you can play the same levels several times in different ways on huge maps. You can sneak around or shoot all that moves but it's much more realistic than other games of the genre as you react to injury by being less able to do certain tasks i.e. if you're shot in the arm your aim is impaired, shot in the leg you'll move slower. This game is very challenging and a blast to play online!
Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising Reviewjackmomma | May 12, 2013 | See all jackmomma's reviews »
You are thrown into the island of Skira which is 277.698 km2. Those who played the original OFP will be disappointed to see that it is not the same open world game. Missions follow a linear style with the "freedom" to go and do what you want nor is there ambiance like in the arma series. Now the games AI does suffer but is not the worst you will often find yourself pinned down unable to move, Graphics are fairly good, audio can be better but it's not bad and the overall mechanics are fairly solid. I would recommend this game as an alternative to arma 2 but not a replacement
