Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising
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. The player takes the role of a US soldier, part of the allied force fighting against outnumbering Chinese forces vying for control of the island.
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.

Ok so for a game this old I didn't expect it to be that beautiful. The graphics is amazing and looks realistic.(dragon rising) The sounds isn't very the same. The explosions don't make enough boomy sounds that it doesn't sound realistic. The guns sound like plastic guns for some reason but I can work with average sounds I don't mind. You can do a lot of things here like calling artillery support, telling you squad to go to specific place, telling them a lot of things you want them to do like clearing buildings or holding their fire and all that. The problem I have with both games is the controls. It is almost unplayable with my xbox controller because of how many buttons that needs pressing at the same time when playing this game. Giving a command to you squad is almost like playing the game literally on your controller because its that frustrating. On the keyboard is also terrible because for some reason the devs chose to make the game have a really crazy sensitivity. A little movement with my mouse thats set up to its lowest DPI (800) moves by a lot farther than where I want my crosshair to be. and thats while my game's sensitivity option is at the lowest. Its just almost unplayable with anything I have.
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.
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.
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!
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
