Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is a direct sequel to 2001's hit combat simulation game Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis and the expansion pack Operation Flashpoint: Resistance.
Operation Flashpoint is a semi-realistic shooter that features an 11 mission co-op campaign. It is very similar to Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and even SWAT 4. The game has great graphics and solid gameplay but there are some glaring problems that keep it from being a top-tier FPS.
First off the chance you will encounter a mission-breaking scripting bug is almost certain, usually this can be remedied by restarting the mission, however this is completely unacceptable in a patched game. The lack of being able to select your loadout and only having access to a few vehicles makes it fall in the category of a solid and not a great game. It’s fun – especially in co-op however there are enough downsides here to make this game only warrant a bargain bin price.
Highest Rated (2 agree) 8/10
Game is good, but it is not as good as OFP:CWC. Lacking ammount of weapons and vehicles, dumb AIand no save freature (only checkpoints). Difficulty levels are IMHO unblanced, for me normal is too easy and expirenced too hard, you can't mod diff level like in OPF:CWC. You are playing on an chineese-occupied ile called skira(220 km/2). But even though all things this game does wrong, it's worth playing if you are searching for a hard tactical shooter. (sorry for my english)
