5.0 out of 5 stars Slow paced co-op fun 4 Jun 2011
By XezNuT
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is what you get when someone doesn't go for a Call of Duty clone. A slow tactical game with a credibel story. It's not the graphics or the physics that make this game, it's the challenging campain, the "realistic" setting and gun behavor, the tactical factor and the co-op. Gather some friends and the sence of acomplishement in the end is fantastic.
A brilliant game for a diferent "crowd".

3.0 out of 5 stars Codemasters going backwards 29 May 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
To start with I'm a massive fan of FPS, COD as well as Bad Company and played the original Operation flashpoint when I was 13-14 nearly a decade ago and it seems to me that in Red River the developers have tried to bring the original strategy and game play back.

The first thing people will notice is the quality of the graphics. Not only compared to Dragon Rising but to any modern FPS. People said that Black Ops went backwards in respect to quality of graphics compared to MW2 but my goodness what have Codemasters done? The graphics are nearly all pixilated and the rotors on the helis are about one pixel deep. The only cool thing is they have clearly tried to create a more realistic experience behind a weapon by giving the character hand movement and gestures such as stretching his hand etc etc but really what people wanted from the latest instalment was an improvement on Dragon Rising. Unfortunately this has not been achieved. The smoke and explosions are of low quality and the inability to enter any other type of vehicle that you may come across in the battle zone is also annoying. That was the coolest thing about Dragon Rising was that you could get into a tank or a heli and you could mess about with the different types of infra red or the type of armament you were about to unload. All of this has been lost to try and get what could have been an amazing platform version of ARMA 2 but instead they have gone backwards.

The online games are ok but again they are extremely limited. My hope is that they will be bringing out patches for the graphics and hopefuly some DLC in the near future.

AI has not improved so you just have to come to terms with the one man squad based playing format.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad, when it shines it shines. 14 May 2011
By kyuss

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I agree with the people who say the graphics are poor and your team are stupid. Most of the time I couldn't see the bad guys, but I thought that is how it might be for real.The sargent it annoying as hell and your team have no concept of cover. Put all that to one side to enjoy the chaos. Sniping hords of chinese from rooftops and using the leveling system to play levels again as a different class or with better equipment is very rewarding. I played the game on normal and it has waypoints to follow so you don't go too wrong, leave the set route and come on the enemy from a different angle, or walk into a storm of lead. Can't wait to play online as co-op should be very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Op Flashpoint Red River 27 April 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Operation Flashpoint Red River is a squad based first person shooter that is a lot more realistic than any other FPS game on the market. It is flawed though by a number of small graphics and game play faults that mars an otherwise perfect game.

This is the second Operation Flashpoint game to come out on the PS3, and it seems that the designers have learned from mistakes made in the first game. If you have played the first Operation Flashpoint game you will be pleased to find that Red River is a lot more streamlined and accessible. The graphics are much improved, there are no ten mile foot hikes between missions and there are no impossibly difficult missions.

However there are problems with this game, including some graphics glitches which may or may not be fixed by later patches. These may result in flickering in some parts of the game and buildings missing details close up. Despite this I liked the look of the game, it's probably not as pretty as say Call of Duty, but the area of Tajikistan that the game is set in looks true to life. The marines and their weapons are very detailed and there are some nice effects for explosions and other weapons. You can affect the environment with weapons fire, although the effects are fairly limited.

More worrying still are some problems which affect the game play. These include a regular problem on FPS games when you try and shoot through a small gap between two objects and the game does not recognise there is a gap there. Looking through your sights you have a clear line of sight but all your bullets end up hitting into an invisible barrier as the game cannot recognise the small gap you are firing through. I've seen this problem in other games so Operation Flashpoint is not alone here, but it is still irritating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Real Fun 7 April 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is very realistic by far if your comparing it games like call of duty; instead of your character taking 10 bullets to die on this game your lucky if you survive one, am very big on graphics and they are fairly good and this game is a lot better than the first one by far. the game also gives an insight into the world of real combat and how they act just a really good realistic game you really can't go wrong!!!!

Yeah, agree with all the reviews already posted (both the positive and negative). AI can be frustrating at times, graphics can be a bit pixilated, game sound really does need a total over haul, but otherwise this is a thoroughly enjoyable game!

Took me a bit to "acclimatise" to this game as I had just come from smashing Killzone3! Much harder to identify targets in this game (similar to real life I guess)!

Not really all that much more to add to whats already been said. A very solid four if you can pick this up for less than a tenner!
