Conflict: Denied Ops reveals an interesting title, but nothing more. The arcade setting, combined with a high destructibility of the scenario and a good differentiation abilities of the protagonists, offers several hours of fun, replayable fully co-operative mode. Unfortunately remain even several defects, as a technical realization is not outstanding, an artificial intelligence sometimes coarse and some limits imposed on the player precisely because of the basic concept. We are not likely to face a must-have, but if you want a shooter pleasant and intuitive, with a structure a bit 'different from usual, Denied Ops could be for you.
Interesting gameLippe1989 | Dec. 30, 2012 | See all Lippe1989's reviews »
This is an average game. The graphics are okay, not ugly, not wonderful. The gameplay is also okay. It is not very polished but the mechanics and the aim are good. It is not disappoint. The characters are interesting and different from each other. It is a good game to play with a partner and depending on the character that you choose the type of game will change too. Each one has a speciality. But it is interesting. The story is also interesting, nothing spetacular that changes our emotions or something like that but it is good for this kind of game. It is not a game that someone will be happy to pay a expensive price but for the price that it is I think that is fair. I strongly recommend that is more interesting to play it with a partner. The experience will be much better and will give some funny momments. With the right price it will be a good bought.

This game is not very known but it's a good game. The gameplay is cool and even simple, it's not bad. The characters are interesting because each one has a personality but not only it. The experience may change depending on who you choose to play, also because the type of weapon will change. I can guarantee that it's a very good game to play in co-op. I'm sure that the with a friend the two will enjoy a lot and have a good experience. It's not a game who buy paying a lot of money but I'm sure that the game's price is very fair for what game gives to us. I recommend.
Worth a try, if you have a friend to play withEzkimo | Nov. 10, 2012 | See all Ezkimo's reviews »
The game itself is, without a doubt, outdated. Graphics are semi-ok, sounds are pretty awful, but the gameplay is good, if you can find a friend. The game gets quite boring when you play it alone, but the co-op is, and always has been, the best part in Conflict-series. I've played pretty much all of the Conflict games, either on pc or xbox, and the only good thing in them is the co-op. So, to sum it all up, give it a go if you got a friend, but I wouldn't waste my money on this if your gonna play alone.

The campaign in Conflict: Denied Ops is fairly standard fare, and as such isn't overly interesting. Being able to control more than one of the characters in it, though, is something a little different.
So long as you're good with playing through yet another save the world from the evil terrorists type of thing, Conflict isn't half bad. The shooting mechanics are solid, but the strange auto-aim thing I occasionally ran into was a bit of a pain, and sometimes had me focus on the one hostile in the area who wasn't doing much of anything.
Graphics-wise, the game looks quite a few years older than others released around the same time it was, and the crazy over-use of bloom and HDR in the outdoor areas was a little irritating. Truth be told, the jagged edges and bland textures all the bright and shiny effects were trying to hide look just fine to me.
I did have the game crash on me three times without reason, though, and lost my last saved progress presumably due to that. The levels are pretty short though, so that wasn't too big a deal. One character fell through a floor once, but reloading fixed that.
All in all, one to grab only if it's cheap. It's not a bad way to spend a few hours, but the bugs and predictable story shorten the shelf life.
