Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising by Codemasters is a realistic first person tactical shooter which aims to represent modern infantry combat and real battlefield conditions.
The game takes place on the island of Skira (Kiska in reality) off the north cost of Japan. Russia, China and Japan have at some point claimed the territory. But when one of the last oil and gas reserves is found on the island, an old dispute between China and Russia quickly turns into war.
The Russians currently own the island and they ask their allies, America, to help them. The game begins when you arrive as part of the United States Marine Corps. Your mission, along with your comrades, is to defeat the Chinese military and capture the island on behalf of the Russians.
War is taken very seriously in this game; a great deal of effort has gone into its realism; from the amazing arsenal of weaponry to the stunning visuals and brutal realism of battle - are you ready to experience the theatre of war?
