RIVER OF RED. WISHED ARMA WAS ON CONSOLES. That would suck though.
A Few Masters of Code Run Through What to Expect Out of Operation FlashPoint: Red River
" It's not out in the US? That explains a few things - I assumed everybody had just ignored it.It's a 7/10 btw. 8 if the AI is fixed by June. "The AI wasn't fixed during the life of the first game, or for the release of this one. I'd hazard a guess that they would have fixed it by now if they could get it done before June :P
Played an hour or two and it's a decent game, The best thing is its different to the majority of modern shooters, It is slower than COD as it's more tactical, it's more of a simulation than COD.
It is enjoyable and a breath of fresh air as COD and it's clones are getting old fast.
It's funny to see all the comments online about this game, Allot of hate from some people who continue to say " it sucks,i will stick with COD", basically anything that is not using the excat same controls and feel of COD is garbage.
I dont want to live in a world where we only play the same games every 1-2 years with minor improvements, I love modern games epecially how stories have greatly improved but there are vey few publishers & developers willing to take a gamble on something different because the only games that sell well are the same franchises, The problem is them other games are not selling enough to be profitable, it seems like its either a few millon seller or a bust, over the years the middle ground is where we have seen games with different and unique ideas but they are becoming few and far between.
I think at this stage everyone knows the story with the OFP name so we can all stop constantly spouting it in the forums. This game looks kinda fun and at least in a better state than Dragon Rising was. The reviews were pretty decent for it as well but I suppose they were for DR too. The word of mouth is much better though. I may pick it up if its cheaper on Steam or if I see it in a shop.
Seeing an AN/PAQ-1 on a shotgun just looks weird to me.
SGT. Knox is probably one of the worst written characters I've had the displeasure of listening to in a long time. And this whole 'riding between stages on a quad/back of truck' to lengthen short single-player campaigns isn't fooling anyone.
If there's no pvp then your AI better be up to scratch. This game fails as a result.
Codemasters I sort of liked the first one but this one is farther dumbed down. I felt that OF: DR was already lacking. So I am very cautious of this version. As G.W. Bush said, "Fool me once...and I can't get fooled again."
I'm still waiting for another shooter to just straight up take the Brother's in arms command ring. It's probably not suitable for a game that's supposed to be as tactical as Operation Flashpoint, but it would be great in a squad based shooter.
