Codemasters released these 2 images of Operation Flashpoint 2, a game that seemingly can't decide between looking good or bad.

looks rather nice, I'm just hoping they keep the "sim" aspect of the series otherwise it will probs be ARMA 2 for me (the 1st admitedly is a bugfest).

Any word on a mission editor, similar to the one in the fist game, this time around?

people need to remember OPF2 is not the second OPF, ARMA2 is technically the second OPF as the OPF team is doing ARMA2, god knows what happened to the old ARMA1 team lol

About the graphics: they should have applied a (better) depth-of-field or focus filter. Now (pic 2) trees in the distance are as sharp as near objects... this could have been done better. I hate it when everything is evenly sharp in games.

Technically the game is now officially called Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising without the '2'. Neither games are actually sequels to the first Operation Flashpoint, just games in the same spirit of that franchise.

Also no mission editor yet for the console versions, its been confirmed only for the pc version.

This is the OF I used to admire! Hopefully they'll continue on this path and deliver a great game, not only on the graphics part, but also in terms of gameplay!

Unless you played the original Czech version of ArmA after release, you have no idea...

The effect you speak of is nice only to disguise certain objects, or to shift the focus on a particular object to make it look "nice". However, it's not very realistic, especially if you want to convey realism in your game. I'd much prefere things stayed pin-sharp at a distance, rather than have a filter muddy things out and have your eye straining to see if the dot on the horizon is actually an ememy soldier or a rock. You know what I'm saying?

What's up?
  • Melmoth

    Melmoth In many ways it gave me a Last of Us vibe. Well written, strong voice actors and presentation, but the gameplay didn't hit the spot for me. I can still understand why so many people like those games (10 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth the vista by running it in 21:9 aspect ration (even though i have a 16:9 tv), which gives more picture information on both sides and worked well for the horizontal design of the level design. (10 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth Having the close over-the-shoulder camera works great for the seamless-camera style presentation they went for, but it's problematic for spacial awareness in larger fights. It did help a bit to widen. (10 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth The mostly two-dimensional level design and not-as-sharp combat combined with a lot of polished animated auto-platforming and transitions made it good, just not a great gaming experience for me. (10 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth to play it. There's no doubt an enormous amount of work put into all the small details and craftmansship in all assets of the game. Very polished presentation. But coming straight off Sekiro, the game (10 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @Sdarts: I had a very similar experience. I got it for PC on release. I already had the game on PS4 for a few years, but still shrinkwrapped. So i thought the high quality PC release was a good way.. (10 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts Anyway, just my stupid opinion and it's not meant to be an attack or hurt anyone, I just had a 8/10 experience. That is all. Though the game does have serious flaws. (1 Day ago)
