8 New in-game images of Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising have been found.
I think this will be the next multi platform hit. graphics look great
No. This game is a tactical game, it's for the fans (like ArmA) and will never go mainstream. Frankly it takes too much thought for the average console gamer than Call of Duty or Killzone.
Hey nice grammar. This game won't sell as well as other FPS because it is a tactical shooter, not because "console gamers are stupid". Tactical shooters just have a smaller audience than the run and gun fast paced shooters.
Thanks, nice spelling before. And usually when you quote, it has to be a real quote. Even if you are paraphrasing that is not what I was getting at.
Which game do you guys think will be better, ArmA 2 or Operation Flashpoint 2? I think Operation Flashpoint 2 looks a bit better.
It should look pretty good, it's using the EGO Engine, the same one used in Dirt and GRID.
then again, I haven't looked anything up on it really. I just hear xbox fanboys bring games like this up when comparing the ps3's and 360's games. (even though it's multiplat? lol). Graphics do look nice though, but games these days are really showing us that graphics are only going to get better. Edit: I watched the available trailers for OF2, looks ok, nothing amazing since it's all cgi trailer. We have all seen our fair share of cgi war game trailers. Anyway, if they want it "realistic" I hope it's going to be like Red Orchestra, I love that game. Most realistic FPS ever. I would love to see a game like that on console.
@phosfor112 " just hear xbox fanboys bring games like this up when comparing the ps3's and 360's games. (even though it's multiplat? lol)." Your a little mistaken there. Your might be referring to all the creeps here saying "killzone is going to killzOWN" and all that nonsense. The xbox gamers were just saying "hang on a second, KZ2 isn't even going to be the best FPS this quarter, let alone this year. The defining FPS this year will be OF2". The original Flashpoint is one of the greatest games ever made, hopefully the sequel will be the same(my bets it will)
but perhaps the gameplay will be good. One should never judge a book by it's cover.
"Even if you are paraphrasing that is not what I was getting at." Your going to get on my case for a spelling mistake when you write sentences like that?
Looks pretty decent. Haven't seen any gameplay yet...
Youtube has tons of gameplay footage.
http://video.google.com/vid... Take a look at the game footage in video #2 or Operation Flashpoint 2 in game
As a fan of operation flashpoint series. This is my most anticipated title. There's over 70 weapons all recreated realistically. Every bolt, switch and rivet is accurate, even the stuff you can't see. There are no hidden pockets in the game, big guns like rocket launchers have to be put carried in pieces and put together before firing. There will also be 50 vehicles in the game, including air, naval and land vehicles. Everything is faithfully simulated; firing, reloading, assembly of weapons etc. The island the game takes place on has 220 km² of terrain, it takes 20 hours<-(So I have read at the op flash forums) in real time to walk across the island!
sounds like a CoD killer and battlefield all in one game. I have been impressed ever since seeing the first trailer.
Will it be multi disc. it sounds like a big game. and it also has great graphics.
I think ArmA 2 looks better. The art styles are different, though. ArmA 2 is going for hyper-realism in its lighting, as is apparent in how dull and drab it looks, whereas Operation Flashpoint 2 has a more stylized look.
the lighting in arma2 isn't going for ultra realism, it just isnt that good everything has this outrageous light cast on it, it isn't "real" at all flashpoint has more realistic lighting engine than arma 2, the character models in arma as well as some of the textures just look weird the soldiers look like they are gi joe dolls flashpoint isn't stylized as much as it is done with a higher quality of work
@ Outlawlife I was thinking the same thing.
I don't know, I think ArmA 2 looks fantastic. http://www.armaholic.com/da... http://www.armaholic.com/da... http://www.armaholic.com/da... http://www.armaholic.com/da...
those screenshots you posted are with the exception on 1 publicity shots meant to show off the game if you got look at others you'll see what i mean immediately
heh i remeber playing the first arma...was a pretty good game..but super open world shooters arnt that fun...but its the gran turismo of shooters
This is the game, along with AA, and ArmA that separate the boys from the men. Look me up when the game comes out: I take body counts by the hundreds =D
I wouldn't say that, I think its just a different play style. If you like being patient and taking your time, then OF2 is your game, but if frenetic gunfights are your thing then CoD is your game.
that separates the boys from the men ? real men don't even think that. ppl have different tastes. for me it depends of my mood :P somedays i just want to get home and play some battlefield 2 or other days i just want to go for some cod4 madness. different games but both incredible.
if this video is in game it's possibly the best looking FPS on consoles so far, thank goodness it is on PS3 and Xbox-360.
That trailer that was being shown in the video is not gameplay but I've seen proper in-game videos and I'm impressed, very impressed. It just looks like a lot of fun. I also heard that they'll have 32 online multiplayer, and on top of that, each individual player has 4 AI controlled teamates, a squad of 5. Meaning that in total, there will be 160 soldiers on th battlefield (5 x 32), 80 each side. I'm drooling right now... just thinking about that... =D
I don't have a lot of trust in this game.. I think the developer is not qualified enough to make a worthy sequel, compared to Bohemia's ArmA II. I think this is going to be a big disappointment, maybe not graphically, but the quality of the engine...
never understood why ppl always say "OMG ITS A (insert game name here) KILLER... TAKE THAT" it's a new game, yeah it looks pretty good, but so did the older games you so desperately like to compare with.
I think it looks awesome, i prefer the greenery outdoor setting, it's nice. Looks like a good shooter
Looks damn good
