I recieved Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising for Christmas and if I had attempted to write any review for this game from then until about two weeks ago, you would probably been reading words like disappointing, too hard and realism. So after a few months play and hours of frustration, it got flung to the bottom of the pile and collected dust. But then I got bored, everything else was complete, except for this. So popped back in and still the frustrations at constant death remained. After a while something seemed to click, and that is when the game started to make more sense. Before I explain that, a bit of background into the game itself. Developed by ... Read the complete review

OF: Dragon Rising seems to have quite the 'mustard' effect. I've read many complaints of people saying the game is too realistic and boring. I couldn't disagree more. I admit when I first started playing the game I didn't like it. The controls were completely different to most FPSs and everything seemed slow. Changing guns, crouching, going prone, reloading - it was all pretty frustrating. Once you get past these initial frustrations however, you see what an amazing game it really is. As you can imagine, realistic is a sought after word that most FPS game developers want to hear their games described as, and I can proudly award OF: Dragon Rising that word. ...

I was only made aware of this game a few days before it came out by a friend. I'm so glad that i was. This game is the more realistic first person shooter that i have ever come across. I have been told that the army do use it for simulations, whether this is true or not it does not bother me, because it is fantastic. It ticks all the boxes for an army sim, accurate, team control, way points with a tactical map. The AI is not the smartest, but up to par compared to most games, and the graphics are absolutely gorgeous. I have a few things to complain about though. Firstly the game is way to short, it lulls you into a false sense of security by making you think its a huge . Read the complete review

Operation Flashpoint to me was a huge disappointment. I expected a fun enjoyable yet challenging war game that gave you the closest war experience without it being real. I found this game to be extremely long and way too realistic , I didn't think I would ever say a game was too realistic however this one is exactly like war, you can get hit by random stray bullets and get killed in 1 shot, this is way too realistic and took the fun out the game for me. The online multiplayer is definitely the best part of the game; the campaign is VERY hard and extremely long. However the weapons on the game are very life like and fun too use, I personally found that all ... Read the complete review

This is for the military tacticians out there. If you feel like ripping an entire platoon to pieces in a 10 minute bullet fest then this game is not for you. Each mission requires careful planning but timely enough so that your allied squads are not left on their own and surrounded. You are in command of a squadron of 4 and must offer instructions concerning Formations, Rules of Engagement, Positioning, Flanking manoeuvres and instructing your medic. This game is a proper challenge and takes the patience of a Saint. Wounds are realistic and if you receive a bullet to the head or chest, it's good night. You will limp, groan and swear when injured and ... Read the complete review
