As the much anticipated return of the genre-defining military conflict title, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is set to take gamers as close to war as they'll ever want to get. In a shooter that recreates the brutal reality of the modern combat experience in stunning detail, Dragon Rising will challenge players to survive the chaos and rapidly evolving situations of modern warfare in a new contemporary theatre.

Players will experience the intensity, diversity and claustrophobia of a present day conflict from the unique perspectives of an infantry marine and a Special Forces officer, each engaged against the full force of the Chinese PLA on the huge open-world island of Skira. Gameplay simulates an immense conflict between advanced forces and provides unparalleled scope with different military disciplines, vehicles and equipment for players to utilise.

The most accessible, immersive, engaging, sandbox wargame: All 220sqkm of Skira Island is completely open to explore at any time and includes a real-time day and night cycle and weather system. Streaming technology means that the island is always there, and a huge 30km draw-distance allows gamers to see flashpoints around the island playing out as they fly, drive and walk around the map.

The biggest military toy-box ever seen in a console FPS: Players can pick up and use over 60 authentic weapons and explosives in Dragon Rising and utilise 25+ PLA and US Army Vehicles.

    Action-packed co-op and single-player campaign mode: With the entire campaign fully playable in co-op with four players, gamers will assume the roles of both USMC infantry and spec ops during the intense 11 mission campaign as the war plays out across Skira Island.

      Online Presence: In addition to four-player co-operative gaming throughout the entire campaign mode, Dragon Rising supports PvP multiplayer for eight players. With each player controlling a four-strong fireteam, the game provides up to 32 characters on-screen in huge firefights.

        Intricate attention to detail: Accurate USMC tactics and equipment are used throughout and US Marines were used as consultants during development to ensure authenticity.

        Calling all Call Of Duty Fans, do you feel that the intense fighting and great multiplayer matches of COD are not enough, do you want more, if the answer is yes, then Operation Flashpoint (OFP) isn't the game for you.
        OFP is a masterpiece of warfare realism, those of you who have the attention span of a gnat will find the scale and pace of flashpoint so overwhelming that you will trade it in and write a scathing review of how boring OFP is. Don't buy this game if you are looking for a in your face MTV style FPS as OFP isn't one. OFP is a War Sim, and when I use the term SIM I mean it's a Sim like a Microsoft Flight Sim or Forza 3. This is a game where if you get shot one of two things will happen, 1 you die and 2, you bleed to death unless treated by your medic, don't get this game if you like quick games with quick results as OFP is a slow burner and requires patience and a strategic mind to enjoy it.
        The good thing to come from this is that thanks to the game style of OFP, we should get a more intelligent gamer playing it and not some trash talking American kid, this is a tactical game and will be accepted by the thinking gamer.
        Now the only bad point I have with OFP is the menu system, its complex and issuing simple orders like heal me is hidden away within the control interface, what would have been a great idea would have been some voice recognition like that used in the tom Clancy end war game, this would have made commands a little easier, but OFP doesn't have this so we are stuck with the complex menu. Apart from that Operation Flashpoint is a great game and should only be played by those who know what they are getting into.

         One of the best games of this year!

        I totally agree with the other guys reviews on this game, they are right on the money. This game is best played by serious gamers as this is a real thinkers game that involves real tactics. So if you are a COD fan and are used to run 'n' gun, you wont last 2 mins on this, as even one bullet can mean game over. But if you think you've got what it takes to play this through then this game is absolutely immense, with very good graphics, loads of variety of vehicles to play around with, with the game just being so breathtakingly realistic, this game must be one of the most realistic war game made. Think Battlefield: BC but with all the realism, then you've got OFP
        Hope this helped :)

         Someone please read the manual!!!

        First off this is a great game, I enjoy run and gun shooters and cant wait for 10/11 like everyone else, but i have heard many people say, i can hit anyone, when they are in the middle of the crosshairs, that's beacause the bullets have a trajectory and speed depending on the weapon use the distance markers on the scope and aim up or get closer, people say 'my squad mates are idiots', they don't follow your orders beacause what you are doing is likely to get them killed (it's in the book), think about what your doing. eg. look at your grenade alternative ammo, there's smoke, it hides you. there are orders you can issue which means they wont fire unless fired upon, so they dont get 'suicidal' they put the suppress and flank orders in for a reason as well as a fall back order. take your time to learn the basic tactics, the first mission is perfect for this, look around and you can see that it's LAID OUT to do this, perfrect it, and it will help you thru the rest of the game, and people who say, its not free roaming because there are waypoints, turn them off in the options or play on hardcore, although why you'd want to go dandering about in 22K2 of island for no reason is beyond me. and people who understand what this game is trying to do will enjoy it, and whereas the multiplayer has it's faults (what game doesn't) it is a great change from running around guns blazing, it forces teamwork, which is something that other games (dare i say COD4) lacks. Try hosting a game and the ranked match servers are bursting at the seams with games.

        I loved Operation Flashpoint (Add on packs included) on the PC despite its little bugs here & there. Naturally I was looking forward to this release, even if it is 10 years too late.

        This is just another great game sabotaged by the developers.
        If you like Operation Flashpoint stay away from it but if you are new to this kind of thing you may like it because you will not have expectations from the original game.
        It is nothing like Operation Flashpoint and is far more in line with Battlefield, Call Of Duty or Americas Army. The only thing that makes this game Operation Flashpoint is the title.
        Hybrid Simulators & Arcade games do not work so give it up, just make it one or the other.

        The AI of your squad in Operation Flashpoint original was good when it came to following orders and putting fire down on the enemy. In Operation Flashpoint 2 the AI is pathetic at best, they have problems hitting targets and following orders at times that result in too many restarts.
        When you restart in the middle of a fire fight it will start with a dark screen so you can't see anything while the enemy close in on you shooting = bang, restart, bang, restart Grrrrrrrr.
        Leave the squad behind where they are safe because they are just a liability most of the time.
        " Fire at will " is great but they don't know which one is Will so it is just your ammo going down as you win the war alone. The bodies disappear quickly so in a tight spot when you are low on ammo there are no enemy weapons around to use.

        The control system and aiming with sticks can be so hard that you usually spend more time fighting the control system than the enemy shooting at you.
        No weapon load out unlike the original Operation Flashpoint.
        No aim assist that is badly needed because you do not have the fine control of your gun sight unlike with a mouse. This makes a fire fight hard.

        Software houses don't have a clue, I expect a product to work and evolve not become so apathetic or novice that I lose interest in gaming. You get the feelling that this title is being sold on the strength of the sales of the original " Operation Flashpoint " and in reality they have little in common.

        Codemasters was once a great name in gaming so what happened ?
        This sequel game had massive innovative potential and they destroyed it.
        Will this game get any awards as did the original Operation Flashpoint ?
        Just making a game look good without playability is a bad call.

        If you like Battlefield, Call of Duty or Americas Army you may like it.

         Makes you think.

        If you're looking for another COD - fast paced and unrealistic - then wait for COD MWF2. But if you're like me and like a challenge this game is for you.

        The game play depends on how you want to approach each mission:

        1. Run in all guns blazing and you'll find that the enemy will call for assistance and you will have teams of Ai trying to hunt you down.
        OR
        2. Take your time and plan where to go avoiding the enemy until you reach you target, then execute your orders and move on to the next check point.

        The nice part of the game is that you have other Special opps teams working alongside you or carrying out their own missions, so you can see other battles going on around you. Rather than being predictable and always coming through, other teams sometimes will sometimes be killed and you're left with just your unit.

        The guns are nice to use and rather than being 100% accurate you find that sometimes you may be slightly off due to movement, breathing or even distance. Unlike COD where you empty a complete clip into a guy's head not missing once, this game requires that you aim and use short bursts to hit your target. Also don't forget that 1 shot can kill you and there is no magical way to heal yourself; all you can do is patch yourself up or risk bleeding to death.

        So if you want a change buy this, but if you're happy running around killing as many people as you can on the same couple of maps doing the same thing over and over, stick to COD.
