PSX Extreme writes: "Sometimes, there's a fine line between a flat-out, run 'n gun shooter and a tactical FPS like Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. Those who prefer military shooters that require the player to use their head as well as their reflexes and dexterity should be intrigued; this sequel by Codemasters not only looks great, but actually skirts the boundary of realism and authenticity. If you're thinking Dragon Rising will be a Call of Duty clone, you'll be sorely disappointed. But if you understand the inherent differences, and enjoy scanning the situation and issuing orders, you'll definitely want to give it a try. You may want to consider Operation Flashpoint as being a first-person version of games like Rainbow Six or Ghost Recon; it will assist your view of this promising title. Just remember: if you're planning to ignore your surroundings and fellow allies and sprint into battle with guns blazing, you'll lose blood at an alarming rate and before too long, you'll be facedown in the mud."
