Operation Flashpoint takes place in the 1980's. Player must fight soviet forces on 3 large 100km islands as an American NATO soldier. Man vehicles such as aircraft, cars, tanks, and boats are driveable and commandable. A mission editor and other tools are also available or already built into the game itself.
Game that I will remember for lifetime. Realistic simulator where you have to use your brain and luck, even if everything is fictional, or seems like it. It is really cool in any other way, although the vanilla game doesn't give you maximum feeling of simulator, the modifications make it dozens of times better, like new models, animations. You can go in this game from a spear to a space marine from Warhammer 40k.
And the thing that I should mention comes now : The maps are really huge, it takes lots of time to travel with a car from one town to another that is placed on the other side of the island.
This is one of the top notch Military-Sim games out there! And it is a great classic! From single-player/multi-player to map editing it gives you a lot of time to waste! Sure now the graphics is out-dated, but seriously. Why play a game because of its graphics? Some of the best games out there aren't about graphics!
But this is a really great game, for its time and today! Worth a shot, this original is a lot different to its follow ups!
