Codemasters just confirmed that Operation Flashoint 2 will get 360 and PS3 versions this summer.
Damn i thought it was coming out this March! Anyway i cant wait, the original is one of the greatest games ever made and hopefully this follows suit. It has the potential to be the defining FPS this gen. OOOhh im so excited, it's been a long wait.
I dont get it. This is still a Codemaster game. I just cant get myself excited over any of their games.
You can't say you wouldn't get excited about a new Dizzy game
You always speak so highly of this game, so I think I'll put this on my radar. What separates this from a Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six game? Is it just more realistic?
To those that don't know this game, dont' think this is some CoD4 or GR type thing. This is essentially SOCOM or Counter Strike but in FPV as a FPS. If you're not down with the two games mentioned, you may find yourself disappointed.
its just amazing war games man. Its not a knee jerk shooter at all though. Its a war simulator with vehicles, planes, tons of guns. Its great..
People who play this like Call of Duty will die. A lot. This is a hardcore war sim. You get shot twice, you're down for the count, buddy.
What about hardcore COD4 modes, where one shot from a lot of guns will kill you? It's a lot slower and sneakier than the normal run-and-gun modes.
This isn't news... Every preview of the game I've seen has had the 3 platforms listed.
The original OFP was pretty damn cool.
Is this a FPS or TPS? I would be interested if it is a TPS.
Its an Ultra-Realistic FPS.
It's always been listed as PC/PS3/360.
If that's something like a mix of CoD4 & Bad Company, then I'm in. Looks promising. Haven't played the original though.
You will most likely not like it. In Flashpoint getting hit once usually means instant death, getting hit the legs means you cant walk untill you find yourself a medic and getting hit the arms will mean you cant use your firearm. The gun aiming is affected by wind, distance, barrel length etc. Look up the original or ARMA to get a feel of how this one will most likely be. But then seeing as how they are going to put on consoles it may be dumbed down.
Um, why? OpFlash wasn't changed one bit on the Xbox.
Oh...en contraire...Even better. I will love it. This is a mix of CoD4 (Game Play ?), Bad Company (Destruction!), Graw2 (! Loved this, and miss a new game!), RB6 (tactical + co-op) and hopefully KZ2 visuals. If that's what it is, its the mother of all shooters. Well, out of all those, I wouldn't mind if its not CoD4. (I am maybe the only one here who doesn't like CoD4 too much).
No, the gameplay has absolutely NOTHING to do with with COD. No run-and-gun mindless action here.
Good. Then consider CoD removed from my list above. Perfectly fine with me.
Remember, COD is only run and gun if you aren't playing hardcore.
game looks amazing. Its like COD on steroids. I dont know if I would even try to buy this game on the ps3 or 360 though? This game looks like it would be best on pc. either way I get to play on my 42 inch 1080p lcd.
Actually, if you think it's CoD, you'll be sorely disappointed. This is CoD on lithium. Slow and dangerous.
http://www.codemasters.com/... the ergo tech video was put up this morning ITS AWESOME
Well now we know what the hold upp has been. this game was supposed to be out dec. 08. multi plats always got to wait on ol turbo 3.
yeah it takes them longer to use all that power. Thats why the ps3 version will probably be better then the 360 version. Im still getting this on steam.
And here we again with the fanboy chatter. Both games will be fine and look identical more than likely.
This game would make a perfect summer release imo. “The advantage of investing in our own technology is that we can custom-build major engine components specifically suited to each title; such as dynamically lit particle effects for gunfire and explosions, incredible vehicle detail and extensive worlds that you can literally get lost in,” said Brant Nicholas, senior producer. Can't wait!
wipes drool from mouth. finally the war sim has come to consoles!!!
Erm, the first Operation Flashpoint was on the Xbox 1, too.
I hope the online is better than Bad Company. It sounds like it may.
If Bad Company is the kind of FPS games you play, you wont like this game.
I like most if not all FPS games, is this not an FPS. I simply made the correlation since it supposed to have vehicle combat, open terrain, and Battlefield type gameplay. or am i wrong?
It's not Battlefield type of gameplay, although it may feel similar on paper.
Really looking forward to this. COD is too run and gun for me. I like my war dangerous. Pop your head up and its gone. The last game was great and summer sounds damn fine. Check out the tech vid... Floppy Feet gave the link. http://www.codemasters.com/...
