Conflict: Denied Ops
Was looking for a multi-player FPS for me and my brother to check out. Picked up this crap. ONLY plus side to it is infinite ammo but the down side... Your stuck with a weapon for each character. You can't pick up a dead opponents weapon to assist the best suited weapon for the field at hand. The Sniper Rifle is more realistic, meaning it's really bouncy when adjuting, and the assualt rifle recoils like there's no tomorrow, making shooting a rushing enemy a obstacle. You can never clear a battlefield, opponents just seem to appear from behind you from nowhere and kill you. You have to heal (Press A above their body) your wounded/downed ally, which can easily get you killed while trying to revive them. The battlefield can be destructive, which is both good and bad. Enemies seem to know to destroy your surroundings, leaving you open to fire from all directions. Graphics are decent. Didn't play too much of it to fully understand the story. Controlls are meh, if your used to games such as, Halo 1-3, Gears of War, Army of Two, etc. Needless to say, I wouldn't recommened picking this up unless you found it in a garage sale . I returned it within 2 days.
First Person Shooters on a whole new level
I got to personally play Conflict: Denied Ops at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that was held in Las Vegas this past week and I must say that this game was breathtaking. Being able to switch from one character to another with a touch of a button was the feature that got me hooked instantly. The visual quality in the game is great as well, it showed the crisp images and real-life sound that made me want to put money down on it now. I also like the feature where you can switch from using your Xbox controller to your mouse and keyboard instantly so that PC gamers can still get that FPS feel with what they are used to playing with. All-In-All, this game is a must buy!!!! I already pre-ordered it and i can't wait
Since this edition of the Conflict series doesn't have the original 4 soldiers, it would be nice for you guys to GET BACK to what these Conflict games the BEST. 4 soldiers, switching back and forth as needed, and being able to use ANY weapon on the battlefield. Also, what about a Conflict Operation Iraqi Freedom, or Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Maybe you'll PUT FOLEY back in one of those.
The storyline actually makes sense for each mission. As you get deeper into the game Targets pop up quicker and quicker. Moving the cursor to the site on the map tells you how much further you have to get to complete the current goals. Playing with 2 players in splitscreen mode is great too. Way better then haveing to go online to play with your friends. The industry should start to put out more multi player games like this, for playing on one console. Diablo for playstaion is another great multiplayer game. Please pay attention, Most of the game players out there would like to have a decent game to play when friends visit, not just to play against online. And I mean this as an adult. I do have online access when I am by myself, but only the sports titles really offer variety for multiplayers. Anyway, back to this game. There are a few downsides here but not many. Biggest gripe I have is the HSM rocket launcher. HSM stands for Heat seeking Missle. In this game the missle never locks. Against harrier jets,and helicopter gunships, It sometimes takes 12-18 tries to actually hit with one of these missles. When you can only carry 3 at a time and must then find a resupply chest, it gets annoying. Especially when it is at the end of the mission, You hit this part about 45 minutes before you Need to go to slep for work the next day, and find yourself going a half hour past your bedtime, and having to turn it off and replay through the whole mission the next time you have to play. There should be a definate way to save each checkpoint, so if reality rears its head, you can restart close to where you were, not have to replay the whole mission. The controls are vastly superior to most other shooter games, that are fast pace... Only control I wish was diffrent, was up close melee button. I get knocked out more often then they do because my reaction to them being right in front always makes me fumble to hit the A button. Stealth mode is pretty easy for Graves, the sniper. Lang only has a silenced pistol, so it is tougher for him to stay alive while being silent and sneaking around. Since he carries a light machine gun, maybe his should have a silencer attached. as an upgrade. Thats the other good thing about this game, as you complete each mission, your weapons gain new abilities. Everyone who enjoys being a sneak should enjoy this game.
Conflict Denied Ops denies some excitement
This game offers players the ability to wisp through the levels blasting the enemy. The player can switch between a soldier hero with a machine gun or an army veteran with a sniper rifle. If players want a two player action packed game, then this game is for you. This game requires tactics and stealth in certain levels. There are objectives required to passing each mission. The downside to this game is there is not many choices offered to the player. For all of those players who prefer the quick game option, this game is most definitely for you. The game seems to do everything for you. The ammo is unlimited, however you have to re-stock at a certain room. Players looking for a quick action packed game with some excitement, give this game a chance.
I literally played the demo for less than 2 mins before i wanted to go hang myself. If the demo is going to be anything even remotly close to the final product this could be a nominee for the worst game of the year...and this yr just started. The Graphics are terrible, the AI couldnt hit the titanic with a chain gun from 10 ft away, and the gameplay is about as good as a kick to the face with soccer cleat with metal studs on it. i have a feeling suicde rates will be going up when this game comes out.
Well, when i first read about this game i was thinking "eh with the co-op shooter craze going on ill check it out" well i played the demo earlier today and didnt really know what to think...i mean the graphics are pretty well done i mean when you fire your gun it actually shows the heat coming out of your gun, and the destructible environments were fun... but the lack of variety in guns(though ingenious...i mean who would have though of a sniper rifle with a shotgun on it) and the and i know it says plain and visible in the demo "this does not reflect the final product," i think that this close to release i think it just might...so my opinion? Rent it or wait and buy it used when its cheaper...
First off the game starts right off into a mission. The controls cant be changed to traditional shooter controls at all. everyone is used to 2 trigger aim and shoot, not push the joystick and trick shooting. DON'T like how your stuck with only a couple weapons. Its just that it definitely could of been thought out better on how to make it. Has a good plot and story line behind it. But, im a guy who likes to play the game thru the campaign some and than thru the online have friends play. Nobody seems to have this game. So, it must have been bad.
Ok first off let me begin by saying that the whole conflict series was alot alot alot of fun and the third person view was great and the four characters that went along with the story where excellent!! but what happened to denied ops??? i played the demo and I was left speechless on how bad it was the demo was horrible! and I for one no matter how miuch i liked the series will not be purchasing this garbage. sorry but denied ops has been DENIED!
As a LOYAL player/owner of ALL the Confilct series games, I will be VERY PO'ED if this new entry does NOT have FOLEY in it. He's the reason they ALL survived in Global War on Terror. He put his LIFE on the line for his fellow comrades,a nd they even stated at the end of the GWT that they were going to find out what happened to Foley. Come on man, we owe it to him.
