OK, so i was going to start this thread months and months ago when i first read a breif preview about it.
But i knew there wouldnt be too many fans about this game, as it is definately for a niche group of gamers.
Now that its really close to being released (April 21) - im getting very excited.
I bought Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising when it came out, and loved it.
It really hit the nail on the head for me in what i want in a military shooter (whether its FPS, or 3rd person).
I found it was a good mix of Ghost Recon (the original), and Full Spectrum Warrior (the original, and Ten Hammers) - all of which i loved.
Though OP:DR was not a perfect game (it was extremely buggy, laggy, not the most detailed graphics, felt a bit sluggish, teammate AI was pretty terrible, opposition AI average - etc, etc) - i loved the idea of the game, the way it played, the realisticness of it, and the fact it was based for co-op gaming.
I found it was a good change of pace for a FPS when your sick of the typical multiplayer run'n'gun where its all about your kd ratio, levelling up, unlocking, perks and other non-realistic nonsense.
I liked the fact that if you tried to play it as if it were COD - you wouldnt last long. You really had to watch every step, think ahead, use your team, take cover, use tactics, and try to think like a soldier might out on the field.
(none of which you have to do in COD :P)
Sorry about the novel.
But i guess im just trying to get the game out there, see whos interested, try get some gamers together who might want to play online or coop, and just general chat about the game.
I havent really been on the PS3 since xmas (apart from a bit of KZ3, and cricket 2011 :P)
Solved! Go to solution
ya dude happy to hook up a play through. ull have to add me again ;) Been playing with some SPT boys lately in bad company 2 hehe
For sure - sorry about the add/remove thing, organising clan games puts a strain on the friends list, so I've got to remove people I don't play with regularly a fair bit - it's never anything personal :). We'll see how Op Flash plays on release and hopefully it'll be good and we'll get something happening. Glad to hear you're enjoying BC2 with the lads :).
I love realstic shooters but I have not played any of the games before this. I am going to pick it up and give it a go and hopefully it will be good. But I am 98% sure that BF3 will be my game of the year this year.
cant wait for BF3 !! :)
will be awesome. even if its just an updated BFBC2.
But that will be later on in the year - so for me, i think OF:RR will be my sorta, realistic mil-shooter until BF3.
(you cant really call it a MilSim i dont think, its not quite ARMA or Full Spectrum Warrior - which i wish they would bring out a new version for PS3)
Anyway - though as i said it is very glitchy and buggy - i rekon its a good mix of a milsim combined with battlefied.
Open fields, concentrating on keeping it realistic, tactical, and very team-based.
I could make a big list of things they should add/change to improve red river - but even if its only a little bit better than Dragon Rising, im gonna get it, and either try play some LAN, or hopefully online with other keen aussies.
whatchya talking bout skywarp? i dont get ya.
The health in flashpoint is already quite realistic IMO. One decent hit and your down, one or two in the arm and you lose accuracy, a shot in the leg and you will struggle to move and wont be able to sprint. Your medic can heal the wounds, revive you, and stop the bleeding - but no magic 'medipacks' or take cover for a few seconds until the red screen goes away.
..unless your talking about if BF had a realistic health system more like flashpoint.
Then no that definately wouldnt work as its a different type of game.
But i suggested nothing like that
Well with the socom beta not being as good as I thought it would be I am now going to get this on the release day and perhaps get socom down the track.
yeah problem with these 2 games is they are released at pretty much the same time.
So its a toughy as im into both.
But dont have the time or money for both really.
Yeah I'm not so hooked on socom. I will play a litle bit of the beta later on tonight I think. And yes BF3 will be a beast
Im not saying BF3 wont be an awesome beast of a game.
It will probably be the best console FPS to date period
But as far as im aware BF3 doesnt come out till December. And Flashpoint and SOCOM come out in about 3 - 4 weeks.
So till then im looking forward to both these games.
As i missed out on the last SOCOM installation, and i really enjoyed LAN'ing with Flashpoint:DR, im thinking FP for me - but i want both :(
And then once im sick of these games, theres Ghost Recon and Spec Ops coming out not too far behind (not to mention non shooter games such as LA Noire)
As ive kind of said before, but definately said in other threads, its good to have a realistic shooter thats not about runnin and gunnin, stats, killstreaks, unlocks, perks and k/d ratios.
This game (if like the last) will be focusing on tactics and teamwork.
(which probably about 90% of gamers dont do in most online FPS's)
The other good thing, is it will also be about tactics and teamwork in SP.
(again, IMO many campaigns dont focus on this in their SP options of their shooters)
I understand this game will be for a small niche of gamers. perhaps those who like to read or watch war movies - not just for the action, but the tactics, the stories, the hell of it all.
I like the fact you can slowly move forward with your squad, either taking the quick route, or the longer safer route around the trees for eg, and half an hour can pass without shooting a round.
I like the fact that the enemy can flank behind you while pinning you down in the middle of a field. I like that sometimes you really have to sneak close enough to pull that long distance sniper shot, which can include a tedious task of commando crawling to avoid being spotted. I like that you can get shot in the arm and it wil affect your accuracy, and vise versa with the enemy.
like your new dp there sky haha.
Yeah I have decided I'm not getting socom. I gave it an other run tonight and just nah. Red river all the way tho.
yeah sure thing I may be watching the first half of the footy tho so after that I will hope on and kick some arse with u.
And yeah I am going to price match and get it from eb so if it is crap I can just return it too lol.
Also I am getting sniper ghost warrior on the 16th I think it is. Hopefully big w or something has a better price then $70 becasue then I will price match that also. I dont want to pay the $70 lol.
yeah its been oit for the pc and xbox for ages. And the PS3 version is a new uopdated version with new missions and all that so it should be pretty good.
And yeah Battlefield is a beast lol
I originally thought the release for Sniper was the 22nd March or something - but that must have been on xbox or something.
So SOCOM, Sniper and Red River all come out aroud the same time.
i wanna play all three.
Ill prob get Red River, maybe hire SOCOM, and not sure about Sniper - depends how good RR is.
But i do like the sound of it - reminds me of when me and my bro played co-op Sniper Elite back on PS2? was awesome fun - my perfect type of stealth WW2 sniper/shooter game.
