If you're unfamiliar with the Operation Flashpoint series, let's get something out of the way right off the top. While Dragon Rising is a modern military shooter, it's not of the run-and-gun variety like Call of Duty. It's a tactical shooter more along the lines of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, even more methodically so. Here's the stage: Russia and China are engaged in a fictional conflict. The two nations are contesting the island of Skira where a large oil reserve lies untapped. With China threatening their immediate border, the Russians seek help from the United States of America. That's where you come in, as a member of the U.S. Marine."
