Codemasters "stole" the name by technicality. They said that Bohemia owns everything with Flashpoint except for the name. To think what people will resort to for a quick buck.

This reminds me of the 1998 Godzilla made in the USA.

Too bad it is made by the publishers and not the original devs... ArmA is the real Real Flashpoint 2...

It's a beast to run because the engine is doing a hell of alot more than what OFP2 is doing. It's pretty much in the same boat that Crysis was in with system requirements, only Crysis didn't have to process and render anything near what ARMA 2 does.
OFP2 is pretty much just like people have mentioned here; BF:BC or COD.

True this game is a Call of Duty this is not a OFP as SK1LL3R this game doesnt deserve to be called OFP.

Can't have a multi platform Flashpoint and expect it not to be dumbed down because of consoles. Doesn't remind me of Flashpoint 1 at all, and the campaign wasn't too eventful, no drama or anything thus a rather boring experience.

I actually dont mind it. I enjoyed playing through the campaign apart from not getting a chance to fly helos etc True ArmA II is a better sequel to OFP But OFP:DR While vanilla isn't terrible its just not that exciting. The weapons are well made but its more like Brothers in Arms crossed with CoD and BF:BC.
Could do better.

I bet all those people argueing the OFP: DR > ARMA 2 debate are now hanging their heads in shame. OFPDR is a doozy, but I suppose if Intel have a mapping competition up, it can't hurt to give it a shot.

Arma 2 imo is a TERRIBLE game. It looks and plays like crap. Not to say OP:DR was a amazing one but it was better than ARMA. Not only graphically but gameplay wise its a lot nicer as well. (character models in both games blow)
