    Operation Flashpoint 2 Preview

    The original Operation Flashpoint on PC, released in 2001 was a hardcore smash-hit. A war game so accurate that it was developed into a virtual simulator for the military.

    Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising offers alot more than the first game. It's still just as ambitious, detailed and tactically demanding as the PC Game, but it will be more accessible to console gamers.

    The game itself is tough, with one hit kills coming often. The game's story spreads across both single player and online modes. The game will put you against the mighty Chinese PLA on the huge island of Skira. The gameplay will simulate the struggle against such a well-armed modern army, with you having access to helicopters (Which is extremely fun) Tanks and armoured transport.

    There will be 50 accessible vehicles in the game to get around the island and attack the enemy. Dragon Rising is a huge threat to the Call of Duty series, eventhough it's alot different. While Modern Warfare was a tight run'n'gun FPS wrapped in hi-tech detail, Dragon Rising is immersing itself fully into the world of modern combat.

    The graphics will use a new character damage system that will be visable, ensuring you won't want to send your team into combat on a whim. The graphics are so highly detailed because the creator of the game went into combat himself and studied injury wounds. The wound system will simply grab the headlines, but its the subtle details that will earn the fans.

    Online options:

    • Team Deathmatch

    • 4 other game modes not named yet.

    PC Version will feature:

    • 32 player (16 vs 16)

    • 8 player co-op in addition to NPC squad members

    • 16 player (8 vs 8)

    • 4 player co-op in addition

    Only 16 player games on consoles is very disappointing

    Now this is what I was waiting for, so is this like say..... CallOfDuty 4 combined with RainbowSix?? cause that would be the perfect shooter.
