First 10 minutes PC Xbox 360 PS3

It's been quite some time since I've been involved in a proper first 10 minutes of game, so when our frend Bombstrike came by with Operation Flashpoint 2 in his bag there was no way I wasn't going to ask him to record some footage for us. There it is, with his quick impression being that it was a potentially great game, ruined in part by the allies IA being utterly bad.

I got this game pre-ordered but it may take a while for me to play it, because of the damned Royal Mail strike. Not watching this 10 min video, because I don't wanna ruin the experience, sorry Blim...

I'll just wait for it a bit longer...

The ai isn't quite as bad as everyone says, your teammates can be a bit bad at finding cover at times, but the enemy is pretty good at flanking and setting up diversions. And the game gets ALOT better if you play it in co-op with three friends.

This comments section desperately needs an Ignore poster option.

As for the game, I got it on the PC a few days ago but I'm not that impressed with it. I like the controls for issuing commands, the title music is different and it runs great on my system but everything else is average IMO... average graphics, average audio, average A.I., average gameplay, etc. The checkpointing is poor, there's no manaul save option so die and you have repeat large sections again nor is there any tutorial section, you're dropped into a warzone where the game issues you instructions that pop up annoyingly as you roam around.

In it's favour it is more accessible than ArmA II and at least runs better but that doesn't make it a good game. I think it's a disappointing follow up to the glitchy/buggy but classic original. I hate to say this but the game feels like it has been severely compromised to run on the consoles.

For me to use the commands and everything, the squad AI has to be good, and I've heard it isn't. Squad shooters are one of my favourite genres (SWAT 4, Republic Commando, Brothers in Arms, Full Spectrum Warrior). Can anyone who's actually played the game give some testimonials on this?

That weapon movement is a joke. It is a shame, it has the same name, like the previous outstanding game from Bohemia Interactive.

Having good fun with this game on co-op, reminds me of ghost recon 2 for the xbox. My only issue is that you cant choose your loadout at the beginning of each mission. You're stuck using whatever weapons they decided to give you.

They were using "70 customizable weapons" as a selling point, then they don't let you choose or customize your weapons :(

Its a little annoying when you enter a game, and the squad leader (host) gets an m4 with a peq laser, and a eotech. Then everyone else gets a vanilla m16.

I only find the AI is bad in online vs mode for some reason.

Hey m8! did you buy it for the ps3 and 360 for you to judge them both bud?

PC version looks so much better than the consoles though.

Not my bag although it does look realistic (to a point). To me, it kind of proves the point that too much realism kills the fun as it seems like much of the game involves shooting tiny little targets in the distance and micro managing your seemingly inept squad AI. Landscapes look nice for an open world though...

It still looks spectacularly average though for a PC game even running on maximum settings with 4096 shadow maps at 1920x1200 with 8xAA and 8xAF so, personally, I don't think it matter which platform you play it on. Sure, I get 60 fps on my system (Core i7/GTX 280) but it doesn't make up for the mediocrity of the game as a whole.

PC owners with decent setups looking for a war sim would be better opting for ArmA II IMO despite all the bugs and glitches as even in that state it's a much more rewarding and enjoyable game.
