Quoted from Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising reviews & previews
"The original Operation Flashpoint often gets paired with the phrase "military simulator," so that you're completely aware it's the kind of game where a single bullet can kill you, bullet trajectory actually drops over long distances, and switching between carrying an assault rifle to an anti-tank rocket takes considerable time. Operation Flashpoint simply prided itself on being a hardcore simulation of infantry combat. So any follow-up, such as the newOperation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising, has quite a legacy. Except, there's the whole drama of how Flashpoint's actual developers (Bohemia Interactive) went and made new Flashpoint-esque games under a different publisher without the official name (ArmA and ArmA 2). Flashpoint 2 isn't a Bohemia Interactive production; it comes from an internal Codemasters studio that tries its damnedest to create a worthy follow-up. What we have is close, but as I keep playing, I realize that "military sim" isn't quite accurate in this case; a better descriptor for Flashpoint 2 would be "'war is hell' sim" -- a game where more of the negative/hellish aspects of combat are emphasized."
"Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising has proven one thing: I would not last long in a modern war. Not only would I die quickly, I'd die in embarrassing ways. Nobody remembers the heroics of the soldier that stuck his head up in the midst of a hail of gunfire or the idiot that ran out into the open field without checking for enemies on the perimeter. Keep your head down. Keep your adrenaline in check. These are the lessons you'll have to take to heart if you want to survive on the battlefield; in real life or in Operation Flashpoint. "
