Stand together with the US Marines in Operation Flashpoint: Red River, the ultimate tactical infantry shooter. You’ll play as one of four distinct and complimentary classes in a Marine Fireteam – Grenadier, Scout, Rifleman and Automatic Rifleman - as you embark on an epic campaign. Take on huge sandbox battlefields in the new setting of Tajikistan, a geopolitical hotspot bordered by Afghanistan and China.
Face the unpredictable threat of all-new insurgent enemies and the might of the world’s largest Army, the Chinese PLA. Use authentic tactics on your own initiative in solo or in four player drop-in, drop-out co-op campaign. For extended replayability, Operation Flashpoint: Red River also includes new class choice, load-out personalisation plus standalone co-op Fireteam Engagements.
With a huge range of authentic weapons and the chance to call in devastating airstrikes, Operation Flashpoint: Red River will put you in the boots of a Marine like never before.
Just as serving a delicious cheesecake on a bed of rotten mackerel kills the appetite, so OpFlash: Red River turns the stomach with its nauseating intro. No matter how appealing the main event might be, you just can't get that image out of your head.
We think it's better than Dragon Rising, and the fact they've taken the "less is more" approach and focused on a couple of key features has been to their credit. It's got some good moments in it, but playing with friends is key and we question the longevity of this title, so the post-release DLC better be good and regular.
Codemasters couldn't deliver a decent military simulation, so it just created a gane that's meant to be funny and entertaining. Don't expect an alternative to games like ARMA, but it's still a good game, just not a very good one.
Red River is not a rival to modern high-budget, high-tech blockbusters. It looks worse than Modern Warfare 2 or Black Ops, and you can't destroy the environment like in Battlefield: Bad Company. But, compared to its overly serious predecessor, this game is a real gift.
Operation Flashpoint's efforts to deliver a tactical-based FPS experience are admirable. Unfortunately, the poor AI prevents the game from succeeding, leaving the cooperative multiplayer as its one saving grace.
It's quite realistic, yes, but it's also full of bugs, sloppy visuals and crippled AI. [June 2011, p.81]
Red River's biggest technical faults concern the disappointing graphics, however. It's one thing to balance out poor texture quality with an impressive scale, but when the world is so stunningly flat and empty it's hard to see why the textures are muddier than a rugby match in a thunderstorm.
