Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The biggest difference between Dragon Rising and Red river is that Codemasters have moved away from simulation towards a squad based shooter; this game is much closer to Ghost Recon than ARMA and the Bohemia incarnations of Flashpoint. Interviews of the game's lead designer on Youtube (search on 'Sion Lenton Flashpoint') suggest that this was the aim.

The open world has been replaced by closely spaced waypoints, so you cannot go off and explore the world and neither can you attack from a different direction to the one the game wants you to.

For example, early in the game is a mission where you have to clear a school building containing insurgents. The location of the waypoints mean you MUST attack from the front of the building; you cannot take position on the other side of the building like you could in Dragon rising. Later in the game, you have to ambush an enemy supply convoy and here you have a choice of positions to take (lead attack or support), but this is a very rare occurance. Most of the time, the missions are strictly decision free and on rails. Fun while it lasts, but the replayability is way down.

The squad commands are also simplified; you cannot now tell your team to take up a particular stance for example (although, strangely the AI still can - you can hear other squads issuing stance orders!), and there is still no way to make your solider lean (important for tactical cover).

Of course, these changes are to cater for first person shooter fans and console users, but there is a problem even here. A highly scripted game presupposes lots of mission set pieces, but you don't get them either! Most of the time its a case of moving between waypoints and engaging.

Graphically, this game looks much like Dragon Rising.

5.0 out of 5 stars All about the gameplay !!!!! 1 Aug 2011
By A. Cresswell TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is one of those rare games (nowadays) where it's all about the gameplay.
The graphics of the game aren't as slick as the ModernWarfare/Battlefield/Medal Of Honor ilk and it's not as technically accurate (and unplayable) as the ARMA series.
HOWEVER this is one of the most engaging and atmospheric games I have played in years.
When the game started off and I was playing Co-Op with my son I wasn't that impressed. The graphics were a bit annoying and the game was definitely buggy. We had numerous window swaps with sound driver software and we saw a lot of LAG spikes (really odd given we were playing over a home LAN on brand new PC's both with 1Gbit cards on a 1Gbit router). However soon after completing the initial missions you started to really feel the atmosphere and the blinding glare of sunlight and dust on the roads and other environmentals you almost felt you wanted to wear sunglasses playing the game. The game is played with contact from the enemy taking place at less than 5m and up to 400m. The atmosphere is detailed and the AI is smart and intelligent. The AI WILL flank you, will hunt you down, will seek cover, can be suppressed and will home in on you. The tracer rounds are not just a nice effect. When you get hit it can be an insta-kill if you are hit in locations like the head. Shots to the body can and will sometimes knock you down or back if it's a body armour hit. It also depends on what hits you. (RPG hits are not survivable nor are tank tounds :) *grin*) The whole reloading of the mission and playing again is harsh BUT it encourages accurate firefight gameplay you really do find yourself watching for cover and moving when it gets too hot.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a shame Codemasters, you've ruined it!! 25 July 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game with every expectation of it to be at least equal or better that Dragon Rising, but I was left very disappointed. Codemasters have taken an extremely good simulation and made it into a high spec console first person shooter!!

Gone are the excellent points of being able to go anywhere, and complete your mission in any way you choose, thereby giving you playability over and over and over again. In this you are restricted to following a set path and unless you do you can't complete your mission. For example, when you sprint there is no sound of your breathing becoming laboured and then when you stop there is no unsteadiness, instead you can sprint the whole distance of the mission without any problems.

Second, the opposition are scripted to respawn in the same places and follow the same paths, there is no AI as compared to OF:DR. This gives the distinct console feeling.

Thirdly, you have to listen to this very annoying Staff Sergenant who can't resist shouting constantly every obscenity known and stupid remarks, as does a lot of the AI base squad. Whilst I am not a prude, this is not in evidence in any of the other Flashpoint games in such a number!! A complete let down I say. It gives the impression of you, as part of the squad are there to shoot everything and anything and borders on being racist dare I say, strange for the current climate!!

The graphics are as good as Dragon Rising though, especially the heat shimmer which is neat.

If you like a console feel first person shooter then buy this, if you're looking for more of the same (Dragon Rising), you'll be disappointed!

Codemasters, you've a lot to answer for runining a brilliant title!!!!
