Images PC Xbox 360 PS3

Codemasters has just released some new images for Operation Flashpoint 2, that also goes by the title Dragon Rising. It will most certainly keep all the players who can't afford to play Arma 2 on PC busy. The game is planned for release in September on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and of course, PC.

Haven't really dug into the Arma 2 demo yet (just a little), but one thing they did get spot on is the colour scheme, it looks very natural. DOF is also done very well imo.

This looks kinda similar, but I'm kind of in unfamiliar territory when it comes to Army simulation PC games...

Looks good, but too much grain!

Hopefully when my joystick comes i can get to grips with the helis in armaII and in this aswell. Was doable with mouse and keyboard, but took a lot of effort just to get in the right direction.
I hope OPF runs a bit better than ARMAII, either way i think i prefer the art direction in this, and i hope it has a bit more structure/sympathy to those a little less hardcore sim.

It has certainly improved since its last appearance. But still not even close to being perfect.

lol looks almost exactly the same as ArmA 2, except the smoke in screen 3, which is insane. Photoshop?

Of course it's photoshop. But even with editing I think game is ugly. I tired of those sad gamma games. Also I don't think that game will offer some special exciting gameplay so it's boring.

Arma 2 looks better, the graphics engine in that game is really impressive, second best looking game I have seen after Crysis.

That's a tough thing to say about ArmA 2. As impressive as the engine is it isn't carried well by its art direction.. and Crysis uses both to wow you.

ArmA 2 also has pretty questionable performance.

What I'm most interested in is seeing how/if this game strikes a better balance between its quest for realism and its need for fun than ArmA 2.

Some questionable performance yes! I joined a multiplayer game the other day and it was totally pitch black! I could see the purple haze of the rising sun on the distant horizon and silhouette of a radar station and a house. For some reason this was running at 12 FPS on my machine LOLz

The regular day stuff that looks very impressive runs at about 40 FPS on high settings. The game's particle engine is also rather weak but it still looks mighty impressive IMO.

  • 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 (9 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. (9 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. (9 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. (9 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 (9 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.. (9 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)
