Product Details:

The island of Skira has been a disputed territory since the end of World War II. Officially, it falls under the sovereignty of the Russian Federation, but a U.S. and Japanese presence has been there following the discovery of extremely rich and viable oil fields. On September 23rd at 0800 hours, under the guise of ensuring his people's prosperity, General Zheng ordered an airborne division of the People's Liberation Army of China (PLA) to execute a lightning invasion, claiming Skira Island for the People's Republic. As you are aware, the Russian Federation has requested U.S. military support. In response, the USS Iwo Jima has been deployed. You and your fellow Marines should expect to engage scattered but heavily entrenched PLA positions. Our success on Skira could avert total war on the mainland.

  • Modern military FPS: Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising taps into the real world military forces, equipment, weapons, and tactics to bring you face to face with modern combat.
  • Freedom of play: Giving you the freedom to handle military crisis situations using your own initiative, unscripted missions provide real objectives such as laying down covering fire, covering a friendly unit's retreat, or conducting short-range recon patrol. Armed with cutting-edge military hardware, you will need to balance brute force with intelligent use of tactics.
  • Squad-based combat: As an epic single- and multi-player campaign weaves the narrative, fight as infantry soldiers in battle, drive tanks in armored assaults, and infiltrate the enemy in covert special operations.
  • Redefining battle: The sandbox battlefield (137 square miles) provides a multitude of tactical decisions on how to best accomplish missions. Densely packed with environment detail and objects, valleys, mountains, coastlines, towns, villages, and industrial complexes all combine to deliver a rich and challenging tactical environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This game is great.BUT if you enjoy CoD (the most unrealistic and boring series on the planet) then chances are you will hate on it because it is tactical...you are not the hero,it does not all fall upon you to do everything. but this and arma II are both great. highly recommend them,but I warn if you want a total military sim than red river is more of a realistic shooter.As the producers themselves said...dragon rising is a total military sim...no game to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps you wanting more This game incorporates the thrill of a first person shooter as well as the strategy used to command your troops. By this, you are able to give orders to your squad, and help carry out objectives by fighting alngside with them. Its a game that you either will like alot, or regret buying.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Realistic But Boring This game is terrible for me the graphics are horrible for it's time even if the game is big and what not it's still terrible. The damage system is pretty cool and if you get shot just once you could die. The game is very glitchy and has like floating tents and junk and it also requires a lot of patience I would recommend this game to extreme hardcore gamers and no one else. If you want a good shooter get BF3 and if you want free roam shooter go for Far Cry 3 (TBR).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different war game Dragon Rising is different from other first person shooters and war games. Each mission expands in a big, open ground that you can explore, but there is still objectives and gunfights. Also there is cool features like having the control to drive cars, trucks, boats and helis. And if you've had enough fighting, you can relax and take a dip in the ocean. I haven't beaten this game yet, it isn't too addicting or anything, but I would recommend it if you do not mind walking long distances to get to your objective. It is a different kind of war game, if you like always being right in the action and gunning, then get COD, but this isn't exactly like Battlefield. It's kind of in it's own place on the charts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great with Patience This game is very slow moving, which for many people isn't a problem. Dragon Rising requires an ample amount of strategic ability. The game has a vast open-world space with two islands. Missions my include going all over the island as a main objective with transport provided, but in order to use it efficiently you must disable sam sites or whatever, bringing in the strategic part. This game is most likely not for the Call of Duty player, maybe a Battlefield player, but defiantly not a CoD player. The game doesn't really have cutscenes though, which is an issue. This game has many glitches too, like your gun not appearing. Overall though, this game is great, is sequel is great too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointment! This game is not a competitor with Modern Warfare or Battlefield. This game is squad based, like the old Tom Clancy Ghost Recon games or Socom. The graphics aren't the best, but they are ok. The gameplay is somewhat lacking with extremely odd controls that make the game difficult. A lot of walking is involved in this game as I spent most of my time walking from one detail to another, just to complete the mission. Have not tired the multiplayer and most likely won't with some newer first person shooter games that are out. Codemasters is a good developer, but this game is lacking a lot. This game might be up your alley if you like squad based ( commanding, squad support style ) style first person shooters.
