Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is a game about a fictitious conflict on one of the Sakhalin islands, a conflict that is in danger of erupting onto a global scale. The player takes the role of a US soldier, part of the allied force fighting against outnumbering Chinese forces vying for control of the island. The game centres on a campaign narrative that gives the player a variety of roles in the allied forces ranging from a Marine Infantry, tank commander, Special Forces and helicopter captain. The game has an incredible realistic depiction of war with careful attention to the detail of the weapons, equipment and tactics of the armed forces. The action is varied from intense fire fights through to slower pace tactical decision making on how to best tackle the mission objectives.

Most accessible, engaging and visceral sandbox shooter - Includes over 100 authentically modeled vehicles and weapons and players will be able to control multi-component vehicles including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, APCs, attack and utility helicopters
Freedom of Play - Players will need to balance brute force with intelligent use of tactics with unscripted missions containing real objectives such as covering a friendly unit's retreat or conducting short-range recon patrols
Squad-Based Combat - As an epic single and multi-player campaign weaves the narrative, players will fight as infantry soldiers in battle, drive tanks in armored assaults, and infiltrate the enemy in covert special operations utilizing a wide variety of realistic military weapons from knives and rifles to machine guns and grenade launchers.
Redefines the Size of Battles - The island of Skira is 220km2 large and gives the player the ability to make a multitude of tactical decisions based on terrain and environments. The island contains valleys, mountains, coastlines, towns, and much more!
Co-Op and PvP Support - Play with up to 3 friends cooperatively through the campaign or head online and play up against 32 players in epic battles!

Good but it is really buggy, I can't even complete one of my saved games because of a glitch on the very last mission that saved on a checkpoint. If it's been patched then fantastic.
#2
some of the missions are still a bit buggy on this, and the AI can be a bit fickle at times but if your playing co-op this can be a great game.
#3
Quite fun on lan even though it can be pretty buggy.

IMO one of the worst online shooter of all time due to p2p networking.

Hey at least it's so much better than RR. I found it enjoyable on lan aswell. Lots of ways to tackle missions and open environments. ^^
#6
loving it ......
#7
Got this free with an i7 CPU many moons ago, quite enjoyed it regardless of the bugs.
#8
I would say this is the perfect price for this game, this is how much It should have been at launch!!! voted Hot
#9
So much better than the horrid Red River recently released (even has better graphics which somehow seems daft for a older game), okay it's not ARMA2 but it's still a decent game that certainly runs smooth on most rigs and has good co-op modes.

Your opinion of whether you like the game or not is irrelevant, it's all about the cheapest price.

If everyone voted hot/cold dependant on whether they like/dislike an item then this website would be useless.

you mean games like cod with hitboxes as wide as your mouth and care packages descending from the sky?
It is a decent tactical game at this price, worthy at this price and cheapest atm = ethics of HUKD.

It's worthy if you like tactical and realism: Like Ghost Recon, Arma then sure buy it~
IMO I highly suggest co-op more especially over lan (due to the p2p thing) as in single player AI can be frustrating. It didn't feel console-y to me either.

Graphics wise - it is on par to the standard of games now. Both my friend and I were running it on good rigs...I got roughly 40-50 frames I think with everything on high, but no v-sync.
I enjoyed the storyline and commentary with it, not too macho and what not.
You get freedom on how to approach missions.
Better than Arma 2, not too complicated.
Have to be like accurate, headshot=death. none of that "oh you hit his toe and he died"
Lots of user made missions

-
AI issues can be really annoying. (Often I was medic because the AI was just so sluggish in replying - ironically they were hella accurate on mini guns and good at driving helicopters :D)
Some bugs (though I never encountered many, only once in the air AI refused to land. )
Slight learning curve with the commands when being fire team leader.

It's called being a jackass..lol

You do realise Arma 2 is a completely different game to the concerned deal, stop running around in circles, if you hate it, fine. How about giving something constructive that is actually detailed concerning the game so people can make an intelligent choice, instead of saying the "game is full of bags". Oh yes oh so helpful...
Note : Arma 2 IS VERY DEMANDING unlike DR and looking at your posts you know "bags" about computers.

ps. stop staring at my ass

Yes I do know ARMA 2 is different

I like circles

I hate it

The game's AI are terrible and don't exactly help you in the mission, (in my case that is)

The online is laggy

When did I say "game is full of bags"

You found it helpful

So what I don't know a lot about computers, when did I say i did, I just entered the scene.

I'm gonna stop arguing with you cause you ain't worth the time.

When people do buy this and are disappointed then I won't be shocked

You said "game is full of bags" at coolsakil - May 17, 2011 17:06 if that helps.
I'm not arguing, just sayin' you ain't being helpful at all, blinded by your hate of the game.
You need a lan friend, wanna be fwiends? :D

I've never had a problem, but try installing the 1.02 patch if you haven't alreadie......

Maybe I do; but i'll trust my own judgement from watching videos/reading reviews from reputable sources. Even if you hate a game, if it's the cheapest price - then it's a hot deal. Such a simple concept that people have extraordinary difficulty with.
