  • 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.
  • Redefines the Size of Battle - Immense play areas of more than 135 square miles give players a multitude of tactical decisions on how to best accomplish missions. 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.

I love shooters of all kinds from Graw2 and UT3 to Cod4 and any other ganme with numbers in the title.
Graw was a personal favourite as you could think tactically about where and what you wanted your team to do.

Operation flashpoint is like that but on steroids. A real tactical shooter at last.

If you think your going to play this all guns blazing then you'll see the mission failed screen far too often. 1 shot kills you. Playing a mission requires patience and a tactical skill: are you going to take on the enemy face to face? How about flanking left? How about splitting your team, moving in stealthly and catching them in a cross fire?
All 3 options are available, using the easy acess radial menu, and many more.

This game is nails to play, but when you achieve your objective the elation felt can not be beaten by any other game. You earn each and every win.
There is no tutuorial as such, you are landed staright into the ( allbeit easy ) first mission.

Standout moments so far have been where you have to hold a village from advancing enemy lines, the taking of an airport.

Haven't tried the multiplayer modes yet, there are only a few on offer. CO-OP of the main mission and 2 PVP modes, infiltartion and deathmatch.

Graphics are smooth but do suffer from a few annoying popups, sound is great thporugh my 5.1 amp.

if you like your shooters arcade like, you may want to give this a miss. If you want to play at real war then this is the game for you.

Having owned the original Operation Flashpoint and both expansion packs on the PC as well as ARMA, I had been looking forward to owning the new game on PS3 so that I wouldn't have to play games on PC anymore, that was until I bought it and found from playing it that the original developers - Bohemia Interactive, had nothing to do with this game.

Essentially you can't compare this game to any other war game on a console because it is a simulation.
If you want to run around along a set route, get shot 5 times but still live and be able to carry on killing people then dont buy this.
If you want a realistic war simulation with HUGE landscapes and a certain degree of 'go anywhere do anything' then this is the game for you.
Anyone suggesting that COD4 or Modern Warfare is a better game is probably 14 years old and hasn't even played this game.

This game however is no match for the original - which i still continue to play, nearly 10 years on.
Codemasters do not own the rights to the original game or any sequal and only own the rights to the name 'Operation Flashpoint', a disagreement between them and Bohemia Interactive has seen them release a game that is inferior to the original PC game which is now nearly 10 years old - however that game was one of the best ever made so that doesnt make this one terrible.

There are a large number of issues with this game that were some of the best things about the old game.
1. This game is quite short, I played on normal difficulty and completed it in 7 hours over 3 evenings, the original game took me around a month to complete each of the 3 parts.

10 years ago I only had one game for my PC Op Flashpoint, it was an incredible game and I wasted a lot of time on it , truly groundbreaking, exciting and challenging. When I heard the legend was returning to the PS3 I instantly went out and bought it on day of release, something I rarely ever do with a game, but I felt sure this had to be a winner. Well having only played three missions I am disappointed, I seem to remember on the original pc game the characters were introduced better, there was more of a story line and cut-scenes, this new game is a bit soulless, I have no attachment to the character I am playing or to the other squad members. Graphically it hasn't really evolved as far as it should have done in 10 years, again it is all a bit bland and unexciting. Controls are ok for the main character, but try and organise the rest of your squad and it get a bit annoying and they have zero personality! Also why couldn't the first couple of missions been played as a non-team leader where you could then get used to moving your own character without having the burden of worrying about the squad, after a couple of missions you could get promoted. I have also just read on the reviews here that none of the single player missions involve tanks?! In the old game that was some of the best missions, commanding a group of tanks rolling over the countryside!...If this is true I can see me swapping this game in very soon! On the positives, the weapons feel good, sound is good, apart from characters voices (lame!) and of course the fact you do have to work out your tactics rather than Rambo those PLA's mo-fos! As soon as Modern Warfare is out I don't think OP Flash will come out of its box again.

Edited Addition - One thing i forgot to mention was the map, it is horrendous, blocky and lacking any detail, why could they not have created a sattelite version google-map style?! Just not good enough in this new world of HD!
