External reviews of Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising (PC)
  • A real taste of war comes home.

    Conclusion
    Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is something you don't see every day on consoles, and its uniqueness does offer a breath of fresh air amidst the myriad twitch and sci-fi shooters out there. This is one of the more realistic war games you'll find on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, with a sense of tension built out of life or death situations rather than over-the-top action. I had fun with Dragon Rising, despite the fact that it consistently showed a lack of polish through weak artificial intelligence, middle of the road presentation, and its fair share of bugs.

    Score details
    Presentation (5/10)
    Don't come looking for bells and whistles, or even any cutscenes introducing a level.
    Graphics (7/10)
    A wide open world that occasionally looks underwhelming.
    Sound (6/10)
    Rarely will the gunfire or explosions pack the punch you'd expect. The voice acting could be a lot better.
    Gameplay (8/10)
    Unique, realistic, and fun. The hardcore will have a ball. Just be prepared for some technical shortcomings.
    Lasting Appeal (8/10)
    The open nature of the quests and co-op play offer great replayability. The multiplayer needs to be cleaned up to really take off.

  • Lack of polish and general annoyances turn this proud military sim into a mediocre shooter.
