Was it the careful attention to detail in bringing countless real world killing machines to the table? The vast engagement ranges? The flexibility of the editor? The challenging AI? The way it achieved that "cog in the machine" type mission structure and narrative? How about the awesome multiplayer, both cooperative and competitive? I can say for certain, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising manages to capture every single one of these aspects. But nagging at the back of mind is the question: Does it actually do any of these things really well enough?"
