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.

so its a codemasters game, what else do you expect? its founded on a good idea but isnt finished properly. Despite that you shouldnt totally write it off. As mentioned in other reviews the graphics are pretty awful for ps3, theres no real detail and the images can sometimes be a bit shakey. However having played the game for some hours now ive kinda got used to it.

The gameplay itself isnt too bad, campaign missions offer a fairly accurate insight into what fighting a war in the middle east is like these days. The missions include lots of compound clearing and long distance firefights, however they seem a bit repetitive after a bit, theres no real discernible difference between any of them. In the missions your squad leader is a man called Ssgt Knox, he basically just waffles on for ages and swears alot, you'll quickly learn to ignore every lecture he gives.

You yourself are in charge of 3 other men. They are controlled from a quick pop up radial menu which is surprisingly easy to use, if only the soldiers would follow your orders!! They have absolutely no sense of initiative, which means you feel as though your constantly nannying them, taking you out of the fight. Expect them to walk in front of your bullets and even vehicles resulting in injury or death.

Besides from the campaign theres a mode called 'fireteam missions' which is similar to spec Ops off CoD or Terrorist hunt from Rainbow six vegas. There a nice little addition to the game which are fun to play when campaign gets dull or annoying. They'll be even better when psn is back up and running.

The game has a limited variety of weapons with a few upgrades available, these are split into 4 classes: riflemen, grenadier, auto riflemen and scout.

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.

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.
