Red River's sales have been poor, garnering 80,000 across Xbox and PS3 platforms, is it time for Codemasters to rethink the series?
No not really i think they need to do a more arma2 style console version good editing gear.
After OFPDR I am glad it flopped get f* CM you lieing cheating fakes, Hopefully we wont see a game like this again by CM. Buggy unfinished 2 mp maps the game was not even finished OFPDR has killed this game the community has voted with their wallets.
kind of like every game CM have released in the past few years They would rather spend £1m on advertising than releasing a bug free or as close to bug free game as possible
It's not out in the US yet...
This game hasn't even hit North American shores, chances are hardcore people that wanted this game already pirated it. The games realism adds quite the dynamic to the game, but it doesn't help when the game is completely un-polished. Based on what I've experienced from Dragon Rising, I can't see this game being any different. When I want my realistic military shooter I'll play ArmA II.
"Has Red River failed Codemasters", should read as, Has Codemasters failed Red River Codemasters highly acceptable - "albeit somewhat bugged" - military first person shooter, "We scored the game an impressive 8/10" LOL they must have a strong mouth wash how can anyone score a bugged game an "impressive 8/10" maybe it should say a*s kissing 8/10
GTA IV had tons of bugs and look at the scores it received.
Which bugs? Tell me. And i dont mean just 4 or 5 bugs. You said: TONS OF BUGS. Would like to hear atleast 10 of em
I agree with wesley-dw, for an open-world sandbox game it was hyper-polished.
1. Flying cars 2. Stuck Pedestrians 3. AI pathing issues. 4. Traffic jams 5. Pigeon glitch 6. Audio bugs from pedestrians 7. rendering glitches 8. Physics objects getting stuck 9. Flying men glitch 10.Container glitch would you like me to continue? (that's rhetorical btw). Next you're going to tell me "well I never experienced any of those so it can't be true". Try Red Dead Redemption as another example.
I used to watch a show called Epileptic Gaming. They reviewed Uncharted 2, and everyone game it a 10 out of 10 except for this jack ass (yes you nice guy ed) who found 1 bug so he gave it 9/10. Anyhow i always wanted to try the 1st one Dragon Rising... is it any good? Hope its like the old school pc rainbow six games.
....more like Codemasters failed their fanbase...AGAIN.
"is it time perhaps for Codies to take a look at the series and perhaps try and re-invent it?" CM already tried reinventing the series and this is what we got. The ARMA series isn't much better, as it's also full of bugs, but the whole appeal of Flashpoint to begin with, was the fact that the game was very realistic. With RR, CM seem to have gone halfway between realism and arcade-like experience and it's lame as a result.
You haven't played Arma II have you. Or Operation Arrowhead. I would hardly call that game and it's associated add ons buggy. OA is not Arma 1. And the fan community doe more modding than any other game on the planet. One look at Armaholic.com or Armed Assault.info will show you this piece of truth. Bohemia listens to and takes care of it's fan base. Quite unlike that moron Sien Lenton that refused to listen to the very same people that refocused Bohemia and directed major changes that appeared in Operation Arrowhead. And with Bohemia's latest viral marketing - a faked hack attack that looks to announce platforms for insertion and support like submarines and the inclusion of the Havok engine the series is just getting better.
