Thread: Operation Flashpoint

    Who has played Operation Flashpoint and what do you all think of it?

    I'm thinking of buying it - great game... and an amazing anti-copy routine :(

    I need to be able to patch it up to newer versions so I can add extra units like the apache and kiowa so the normal nocd crack for ver 1 isn't a solution really...

    two words... it sucks! :)

    too slow moving, you don't have much control of your character unlike some FPS games and it gets boring fast.... almost as bad as Ghost Recon. Graphics suck too.

    Well, despite what they say, its friggen awesome.

    One of the few good ones out there atm.

    None of this pansy happy crappy movie ripoffs or lame ass ambush after ambush with the odd 'wow- that looked cool' feature. Youll play this game for at least a month, and it has replay value.

    For one- it aint no fps game.
    two- it dont need no eye candy. Engine does what it needs to do, and does it well.

    Name me another game that lets you drive across an entire island that is fully populated. You can take a cuise from your home base to another base in a jeep and it too is fully occupied by allied troops and all. Dont like driving? Go take a chopper. Hell, jump in a boat and go to another island!

    If your serious about war games, this game is for you. If you wanna look at how stupid your 'teammates' are and watch them say and do stupid things, go get MOA.
    Flashoint isnt just a one-man army game either. hell, you dont even play one man in the game. You start out as a grunt, then you progress to squad commander, then the story pits you as a different person training for his tank commander badge. Take a tank out for a spin, work your way up to tank commander, then switch to a covert-op agent. sabotage enemy armour, buildings, defences. Then on you go to get your wings. Fancy yourself much of a pilot? Like making A10 bomber runs? Do it.
    As you can se- I love the game. Pretty strong aussie based community too, decent servers and players. Pity I dont have the time for gaming anymore. :(


    out-of-the box version of flashpoint has easily copied copy protection. Its AFTER you patch it that FADE comes into play. AFter you patch you gotta re-patch...if you know what I mean.

    Halo. :)


    But anyways, I'm gonna disagree with ya. I don't know whether it was the interface, the controlling scheme, the pastel-coloured graphics or what, but something about that game didn't sit well with me... It's not that I don't like that style of game, cos I do. Like I said, I liked GR. But Flashpoint didn't really keep me interested the same....

    But that's just me..

    Like I said- the game engine does what it needs to do, and does it well. Not only does it include a fairly well-detailed command interface for controllong not only yourself, but a whole squad of troops, and includes physics for flying Planes, Helicopters, Boats, Jeeps, Tanks and other assorted mobile craft.

    But, like everything- it boils down to preference. I cant stand games like MOA/RtCW that you play for a weekend, then put it on the shelf. You wont do that with Flashpoint.

    Thats all that matters imo.

    I'd have to agree on that Q3A comment.. mindless deathmatch fragging = boring.
