Operation Flashpoint: Red River
Those that enjoy fast paced action games beware-this game is for those of us that enjoy some tactical action. Being a firearms collector myself I can tell you each weapon is authentic (except the AK-47, which is able to perform a tactical reload despite the pulling back of the charging handle. Pulling back the charging handle after performing a reload in which one bullet is chambered would result in the ejection of the current round, therefore leaving you with 30 7.62x39mm rounds, not 31). Unfortunately the response times are slow and co-op online is terrible because of lag. Often you will fire thirty rounds at a target from the hip at less than 25 meters, only to discover that the dude is still there. Some aspects are unrealistic, such as the dumping of bullets into a PLA Special Operator only to realize that somehow 10 5.56x45mm rounds did not do any harm but instead were blocked by body armor. Other than that it's a great game. Gory, though. A 12.7x99mm from an M107 can really cause some limb lossage.
I got this game brand new and paid 60 bucks for it. Got it home, all excited to play, and as soon as I got into it i was disappointed. The controls are slow and sluggish, not to mention hard to get used to. The graphics were rough. If you are a CoD person or even a Battlefield player you will be intensely disappointed.
Birthday 's gift
well i was looking for a game the last week because it gonna be my birthday, i saw the video of this and i read too about the game, i choose this one because this game have the mode of coop on online, to play with another friends on online. Is so pretty cool.
A Real War 3rd person Sim
THis Game is great. If you are a stright forward COD fan well this game might not be for you since you have to command your team in battle. Which is great makes you feel l;ike you are really in the fight. The call signs that go over the radio to your team sound very much like a real fire fight or air strike. I like the first one and now the second. For me I have to say I am a fan!! Buy if you are looking for a challenge
Great for TEAM players!
I loved the firstone accept for the MP lag issues. This is a great simulation type game for the console! The AI is quite smart although my team AI can be dissapointing at times. Have played through the campaign on normal and is true to the military in aspect, jargon and unforunately foul language! This is a great game, and change of pace.... Love it!
Way better than the other one. Game is solid. Love the maps long levels so the game isnt to short and the fire team engagements are awesome. The computer is actually pretty good so this game is no walk in the park. Online is pretty sick i like playing with 3 other guys to make up your squad and just do some serious damage!! Overall this is game is way sick and i would buy it if i were you!!!
This is a solid follow-up to the first game. There's still some problems in the command issuing system but other than that the game has made a lot of improvements to the game throughout. The best part was being able to change the loadouts for your fireteam to what you want them to use. If you think Call of Duty is one of the best games ever made this game is definitely not for you. If your looking for a realistic war experience with a style like the original SOCOMS then this is definitely for you. The mechanics are good, the graphics are no worse that any new Call of Duty, sound is solid, and weapon accuracy is near spot on in realism ( bullet drop compensation is still great ) and the fireteam engagements are a lot of fun. The only real problem I had with the game was the dialogue, seemed like whoever wrote it watched to many war movies. All in all a great game if you like realistic team tactical war games.
OGP - fantastic, not gonna lie you cant just jump in and know what your doing. It takes some time to get used to commanding your squad. Unlike Rainbow Six Vegas, the war in more spread out in open fields and not in your face. The AI has improved very much so, and they have already pushed a patch through. I love the physics involved with sniping, it brings more to the game then just point and shoot. AUDIO - the sounds are good, though i did have to bring voice up to a 10 and the rest down to a 4 cause i couldn't hear what they were saying through all the music and background noise. GRAPHIX - they are not jaw dropping or anything, but i dont care as its the game play that matters most to me. as we all know you can have a very graphic oriented game, mmmm but the game may suck up to much space and be very short. MULTIPLAYER - havent touched on it yet, so cant really comment.. but co-op is the tizzy!! Overall Game - GET YOUR GAME FACE ON AND GET THIS GAME!!!!
DO NOT BUY OR RENT
i thought the first one was the worst made but i was wrong this one took the cake. this is the perfect game for kids with no standards. game play is drawn out to long between scenes and when something does happen your crosshairs wont help they are way off, not to mention the fact that there are about 10-15 enemies per scene and your team or the other teams with you take them all out. so if you like finishing games without having to shoot this is for you because you can have your teammates clear the road and most likely make it to the end. thank you for having places like game stop so i can get rid of this peice of junk!
I this will definatly blow the other operation flashpoints out of the water and could even top call of duty
