Between Afghanistan and China, the world's next flashpoint is about to erupt. The valleys, towns and mountains of Tajikistan will become bloody frontlines for the might of the People's Liberation Army, insurgent guerrilla fighters and the United States Marine Corps.

You and your fireteam can make a difference. How much is up to you. It's not the soldier with the most expensive gun or the biggest heart who wins on the battlefield. It's the smartest. Semper Fi, Marine.

  • Go closer to the experience of the US Marines on campaign with the ultimate tactical infantry shooter
  • Stand together with 4 player drop-in drop-out online co-op multiplayer in campaign mode and standalone Fire Team Engagements
  • Become immersed in an engrossing narrative which unfolds over three acts in campaign mode
  • Play as Grenadier, Scout, Rifleman and Automatic Rifleman classes, each with unique strengths and weaknesses for increased replayability
  • Earn and spend XP on weapons, attachments and abilities for each of the fireteam's specialists
  • Call in Combat Support such as Mortars, Howitzers and JDAMs, whilst AH-1Z Helicopters and A-10 Ground Attack Aircraft provide Close Air Support

 A game for men not COD boys

| | See all StellaArtois63's reviews (40)

Firstly let me say I love the COD games I have them all but lets be honest they are getting rather samey especially online. Operation Flashpoint is different, I would think its the most realistic FPS on the market and its a lot harder and tactical than your COD's. You are in charge of Bravo squad and you look after 3 other guys, and its down to you to order them and put them in the right positions. Do it correctly and they respond well, do it wrong your dead and so are they.
Graphically it looks great to me, game play takes a little time to getting used to the controls but die a few times you learn quickly. It reminds me a lot of the GRAW series. Shooting is not like COD you have to be more precise and allow for bullet drop over long distances so to be honest it is really like a sim, the AI shooting back are pretty damn good to. There are 4 different classes you can play the game as, and as I have found out if you choose the wrong one you can be in all sorts of trouble. The game is chaotic at times you get flanked you get over run so you soon learn to change your tactics if it didnt work the first time. I think its a really good game and I did enjoy the previous one as well.
Online is different,rather than your usual death matches etc this game is about team work and you work with each other rather than against each other. If I want death matches I will play Battlefield or COD but this is differerent and thats why I like it, its a change from the norm.
If you want to run around like a headless chicken then stick with the COD's if you do that on this game you wont last a minute, you really have to think about whats going on. If you want to get a feel of what war must be like and you are up for a challenge then this is a great game.
The only thing that is bad about this game is when you die the load up times do take a while and when you die as much as me can get a little tiresome waiting for it to load. Also bare in mind your team mates are not the brightest sparks and do wander into open ground and infront of you while your shooting, but apart from that this is a really good game.
I will continue to get the COD's but dont compare the 2 as they are miles apart. Operation Flashpoint Red River sorts the men out from the boys

 The best tactical shooter on the xbox 360

This is a great game and is probably the best tactical shooter on the xbox 360.
If you liked GRAW and the Rainbow Six you should definitely buy this game.
You can play through the whole Campaign online plus a selection of Fire team missions which includes escorting a convoy, Last Stand mode (like Gears of War horde mode) , search and rescue and combat sweep (like Rainbow Six terrorist hunt).
The best part playing online is that you can start playing the game with your 4 AI soldiers and then anyone can join your game while its in progress and take control of one of them. This means there is no waiting around in lobbies for games to start.
Also a new addition to Red River is that you can now level up your 4 solider classes (scout, grenadier, rifleman, and auto rifleman), very similar to Call of Duty but on a smaller scale. Which means when playing the campaign solo you can choose the weapons for each team member.
Great Game

 A change from Call of duty

Now i dont know how you guys can constantly play COD over and over. Being a COD lover, im kinda getting abit bored of it now. Its just the same S**t over and over. Red river is as real as it gets. Its what REAL war is all about. Its all about the tactics. Maybe you haters out there dont like the whole one shot one kill. If you dont, stick with COD where you can run out in the open like robocop and take 100 bullets until you die. Red river is not as hard as dragon rising this time, but dont think you can play it COD style!! Better then dragon rising. Been playing it on co op with my cousin online and we're loving it. If you're not sure, rent it from lovefilm or something.

 amazing game

this game is great, i have just completed the campain and it was brilliant, so much better than dragon rising, the graphics are good and the controls are very easy to use, the game is just alot of fun, quite hard but fun, i would recommend buying it, it is worth the money.

 Less arcade mplayer-heavy game - more console combat sim

| | See all Jimbo9999's reviews (2)

Right, for the really negative reviews on here (2 at time of posting). Firstly, the graphics are pretty good with wide-spanning landscapes. Given the location itself, the graphics do exactly what they need to. Also, the AI aren't great but are very functional with constant orders (which is what you're expected to do!). For the second review, don't give a game a negative review because YOU didn't read up on it. The Operation Flashpoint series was never geared up for heavy CoD/battlefield deathmatch style stuff. It's more of a sim, or as close to one as you can get on a console. Main emphasis is on co-op missions, which was the best part of the first console Flashpoint game. If you liked the first one, you'll like this one more. It's not perfect but it's an improvement! If you do the single-player campaign, it's surprisingly lengthy, which is good considering the last game was fairly short in comparison.
