  1. I for one was massively looking forward to this, a game potentially to get me off Call of Duty 4 (still playing some 18 months on!).

    I have previously been a fan of Battlefield2 (IMO Bad Company wasn’t quite as good) and there was hope Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising could of been this style of game for next gen consoles (finally).

    I was looking forward to playing this through the summer, but further worry that once Modern Warfare 2 is released all other games will suffer (even now COD4 dominates my gameplay hours!).

    Unless Dragin Rising is something short of perfection it will likely suffer with MW2 set to break sales records.

    I am a huge fan of the first Operation Flashpoint. I look forward to playing OFP:DR when it comes out. I also liked Call of Duty 4 and that means I will get Modern Warfare 2. I like both simulation and arcade.

    I for one have been awaiting this game’s arrival in great anticipation and if it doesnt get released soon Im goin on a killing spree because I cant take anymore COD its the same shit over and over throughout all of the titles activision has crapped out flashpoint one was the greatest and most detailed war game I’ve ever played I hope for a much more successfull run for you guys this go round my XLive clan loves what they see and I would like to be the first to boycott Modern warfare 2 for it excessive amount crap spewing from game informer and for the guys at activision try changing something other than the skins and textures you OVER-RATED bums SIGNING OUT xRDxMASTERQW33F


  5. I think OF 2 will be the death of COD. Its simple COD is running out of ideas COD MW 2 its gona be the same old crap out with the old in with the new. The trailer both speak for themselves.


  6. Ohh yeah BIA: HH was better than any COD I played.

    MW2 will be polverized by OF 2, because OP 2 is more realistic, only one sho with the javelin missle lancher not the 6 shot crap, then the enemy will retrace the shot and get u and if u servive a shoot you can call a medic or a evac team to get you out before u bleed out

    Honestly, MW2 will clean up.

    OFP2 will do moderately alright, but they haven’t pushed the game enough and too many people are sceptical.

    At the same time the games themselves are apples and oranges, so I don’t see much of a competition between the two.

    But looking purely at who will do better, the answer is cold and clear, Modern Warfare 2.

    OFP2 does have a very unique opportunity to solidify a huge following if the game is solid, the curiosity is huge for this game, especially from the console community.

    It needs to have great game play and next to perfect mechanics. People will pick up on it if it does and the franchise could move on to a huge 3rd edition. If the ratings come in at anything less than an 8.5-9 [using a 10 scale] then we are looking at an end.

    The 2 are like chalk and cheese, MW2 is all about close combat, and an arcade shooter to boot. OF2 is more of a strategic war-sim both have their merrits and both will do well in their respective markets. Having already bought and played OF2, I’ll can say it is close to perfect. But it’s not so much of a PvP experience. The angle is more toward co-op. I’ll be buying MW2 too though as I’m very eklektic when it comes to game genres.

    OPDR2 because way more realistic and modern warfare 2 is gay because u heal on ur own thats gay u have to get a medic on flashpoin yea the gun ups aint that good but still i give modern warfare 8 out of 10 and OFDR2 10 out of 10


  11. MW2 is totally not “modern”, still staying in Rambo’s generation.
    you can kill enemy by shooting 1 bullet on their foot, but you can staying alive after 1 dozen of bullets on your heads, stupid MW2
    OFP2 is the best

    I have MW2 for PC and I don’t like it near as much as MW. And neither as much as OFP. The thing I really liked about OFP, and hopefully OF:DR, is the ability to create my own missions, set up enemies to patrol, or even appear, randomly.

    The two games really are apples and oranges, as stated previously.


  13. I thing that ofdragonrising has better lighting than md2 and grass is better in ofdr but better to play is codmd2 it has amaizing mission for graphic it to difficult to choose beacuse both of them have good graphic but codmd2 doesn’t need lot of ram memory so game go much faster than ofdr but in ofdr you can create a mission for my opinion better is codmw2

    flashpoint is far the better game, the trouble with Modern Warfare is, its all about who is quicker on the trigger, where by all gamers can imagine they are just like Rambo, there is no real thinking behind the game. And as far as stealth in the game, well that’s is non existent. modern ware fare is basically the same format as Halo and many more shoot em up games, just different uniforms whereby flashpoint dragon rising (specially playing in hard core mode)is very realistic and it gets you to thinking more about your surroundings and how you use your surroundings the maps are huge. Modern Warfare is really a kids game in comparison even though its got a adult rating.
