Don't Miss This – Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising – In Game Footage Trailer

Listen up, and listen up real good, mmmmkay.

Too many people just don’t really understand how incredibly good the first Operation Flashpoint game was and how far ahead of it’s time it was when it came out all those years ago on PC.

This trailer for the new Operation Flashpoint, titled Dragon Rising on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 is looking fantastic and has me really, really hyped up and I only hope that the developers didn’t screw it up because I am really looking forward to it.

The original Operation Flashpoint blew me away with it’s incredibly massive environment, on which the entire game took place, and the way that it dealt with branching missions that altered compared to your actions, as well as keeping time and the time of day as a critical factor of the gameplay.

I am interested to hear if any of our readers played the original, or if any of you have any comments to make about the trailers that have been shown so far.

The game is set to release in the third quarter of this year and if this game is anything like the original, it is going to be superb and the only thing that makes me sad is that it’s sitting way under a lot of people’s radars. Pay attention to this game, we might be in for a real gem.

    I think this might just rival Modern Warfare 2 😕

  • I think it’s going to aim for realism a lot more, and won’t pack the same crazy action as MW2, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t going to be good. Man this game better not suck…

  • I remember Operation Flashpoint well. That game is still amazing! I played it again recently! Once shot to the head and you were dead!

    I cannot wait for this!

  • easy

    i also played this game to death when it came out. but i’m not sure how well it will be received, the first game was pretty tough and massive (think gta sandbox)! but the online portion of the game was a bit basic, hopefully they’ve fixed it.

    as nick said, if its anything like the first game… it wont be anything like mw2. fp is more of a war sim than a generic shooter.

    i would definitely recommend though

    The first Flashpoint is one of the greatest games of all time. Dragon Rising looks absolutely awesome, must be kind of sucky for the original dev. team since they’ve been making Arma II to compete with their own idea (Flashpoint).

    Most of RIP and OAP is getting the game, so there will be some excellent local xbox action going on.

  • MaxiViper

    Game looks kickass looking forward to it, just don’t want to buy it and find out its not that good.
