  • Freedom of Play – Operation Flashpoint 2 will give players the freedom to handle military crisis situations on their initiative. Unscripted missions will task players with real objectives, such as laying down covering fire, covering a friendly unit’s retreat or conducting short-range recon patrol. Armed with cutting edge military hardware, players will need to balance brute force with intelligent use of tactics. Once players have completed the campaign, a Mission Editor enables gamers to create their own single player and multiplayer missions.
  • The most realistic modern military conflict game – Operation Flashpoint 2 features unparalleled levels of realism and variety of military forces, equipment, weapons and tactics. Fully loaded weapons and individual ammunition types will be simulated with detailed ballistic physics, based upon individually-crafted mechanics. Players will command and control a wide variety of multi-component, multi-weapon vehicles, including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, APCs, attack and utility helicopters. The character damage system authentically depicts the terrible wounds and injury from modern weapons to communicate the reality of combat.
  • Platoon-Based Combat - As an epic campaign weaves the narrative, players will fight as infantry soldiers in battle, drive tanks in armored assaults, pilot helicopters in air strikes, and infiltrate the enemy in covert special operations utilizing a wide variety of realistic military weapons from knives and rifles to machine guns, grenade launchers and laser designators for air strikes. In whichever role the player chooses, they will experience the fierce and brutal reality of warfare and the shock and awe of contemporary firepower unleashed on the arresting scale of modern combat.

Densely packed with environment detail and objects, valleys, mountains, coastlines, towns, villages and industrial complexes all combine to deliver a rich and challenging tactical environment. The world is persistent, so that buildings destroyed in one campaign mission will be destroyed in the next.
  • Stylized Cinematography - Operation Flashpoint 2 will model the environment, objects and people in realistic detail, but its visual styling will embrace documentary techniques. The camera work through cut-scenes will be heavily influenced by television war reports that are often shot under extreme circumstances delivering a unique look with incorrect exposure, severe camera shake and loss of focus.

Well the title says all.

OFP Dragon Rising (OFP:DR) is "dedicated" to the fans of Ghost Recon 1 ("Caucasian" tactical game) and Brothers in Arms series.

Codemaster development team was very intelligent to find the proper "market segmentation" to its product "OFP:Dragon Rising.".
And to me they find the right mix. They find inspiration from:
- 50% Ghost Recon 1 : gameplay and "atmosphere"
- 25% Brothers in Arms Hell's Highway: flanking tactics, good AI manouvering
- 25% OPF 1: freedom of movement + Skira Island: the combat ground reminds me a lot of OFP 1 islands (Everon,etc...), with less towns, but there are small villages,airfield, industrial complex,etc...

So where is the innovation?
- game production: NO BUG, TOP QUALITY CODE (for single player at least)
- Skira island design: the terrain is various (with a lot of big/small depressions where you can hide from fire!), including hills, mountains, huge open ground, some small forests, a bridge (where the AI functions very well!). AS YOU MAY NOTE: in Arma 2 the terrain is very linear, basically no place where to hide on the ground.
- Game graphics: it is not pumped, it is not "steroids" graphics (such as the "plopping" and heavy Arma 2 graphics). It is very functional and it is not annyoing such as ArmA 2 graphics (to me). You can easily have a great detail in OFP : DR simply pumping up graphics forcing from the video card driver (es: Nforceware for Nvidia 8800 GT). Set "High Quality", "Triple Buffering" and so on. The game code is optimized, so no problem.

PROS:
- great single player campaign: 11 levels, "Capture the airfield", "Monastery" and "Powder Trail" are top missions for me. Really huge environment to run, no bug, great and responsive AI.

Well, I saw all the trailers and really had some kind of "wow effect" even I was aware that they were rendered of course. But if the result was only half of the movie quality it would have been fantastic enough. This could have been the game I was waiting for. It seemed as if the best of BF2 has been combined with pure tactical elements. BF2 became a bit too arcade for me in the meantime because I'm more a careful player then a Rambo. So OPF2 was my new hope.
I preordered it, it came on time, I installed it, started the game, put everything on "high" and..."Huh? That's it?". The graphic is not bad but not even half of what I've exspected. Singleplayer? What? Only 11 mission??? Kidding??? Not to talk about the poor AI of the soldiers: One shot at them and they start to crawl up a hill!!! Nearly as easy as sitting ducks to hit. Use of vehicles and armor? Forget it. Mostly you're walking or you can take here and there a truck or jeep. A joke.

Multiplayer, the one I was excited about. Forget it. Not present. Bad pings, no dedicated servers even in the near future and just 2 maps. Hello? Codemasters, are you kidding? The worst multiplayer ever seen. Such a lousy online "experience" is not what you should exspect today.

Result: Codemasters, you have ruined a game with the highest potentials!!! People, save your money. I should have done also.

I got this mostly for the multiplayer along with some mates and I have not really tried the single player.
I had my doubts about OpFlash and not listening to these doubts was a huge mistake.

The lack of dedicated servers makes finding and successfully joining a game really hard. Servers are laggy, disappear without warning and won't start until the required number of players join. Sometimes this leads to a long wait while the last person presses F9 to say they're ready.

There's also no way to track or join games that my friends are already in, beyond swapping IP addresses.

Once in a multiplayer game the maps are dull and boring, objectives are unclear, and after getting killed your respawn point is often miles from the action, leading to a disjointed feeling, a long walk though the rolling hills of Genericshire and more boredom.

Graphically the game looks several years old, with murky textures and poor models. Arma2 (another rubbishy dogs-breakfast of a game) looked loads better than this.

Controls feel laggy, it takes ages to run anywhere, servers are full of indestructible cheats and after a couple of hours trying, I gave up on the multiplayer altogether. Maybe a patch will improve things, but unless they allow for dedicated servers, it's not going to be worth returning to.

Should point out that I am a casual gamer; I average 4 hours a week in 30-45min sessions.
My system is:

3 GHZ AMD Athlon II X2 250
4 gig DDR3 Ram
HD 4850
450w Corsair PSU
Asrock N68C-S motherboard
19" monitor

Played this game on 1280x1024 resolution, all settings on high, and it runs smoothly.

Easy to sum up this game; if you find the Call of duty and Battlefield games shallow and lacking in realism, but find ARMA 2 overly complicated, unpolished, and too deep, then this is the game for you. It rests nicely between the two and obviously this may put some off, but it shouldn't. The best way to review this to list where it beats and lacks against it's main competitor Arma 2.

Pros
This is a big budget production compared to Arma 2 which still looks like an indie production. The character animations, sounds, voice acting/radio chatter, effects and attention to detail are all excellent. Where Arma 2 still uses the same character animations from the original Op Flashpoint and the voice acting/radio chatter is the probably the worst I've heard on any game.
The environment is also detailed and beautiful to look at; when you go prone and crawl in the long grass it looks like you are in the grass instead of the cardboard cut out grass in Arma 2.
The missions are direct and easy to follow. Arma 2 has an open, sandbox, style where it's not always clear how to complete your objectives (which I like, but some don't). Here you are given a clear objective and there is no mystery to how you should complete it.
Each mission follows the plot of an invasion, so some missions involve being part of a spec ops team going in the night before and some missions you are a grunt involved in the invasion itself.
