Codemasters newest release has hit shelves and hard! Operation Flashpoint Red River puts you into a Squad that you have full control over. You choose the tactics, flank left, flank right or suppress, anything to get the job done.

 

Between Afghanistan and China, the world’s next flashpoint is about to erupt.  The valleys, towns and mountains of Tajikistan will become bloody frontlines for the might of the People’s Liberation Army, insurgent guerilla fighters and the United States Marine Corps.

 

 

 

You and your fireteam can make a difference.  How much is up to you.  It’s not the soldier with the most expensive gun or the biggest heart who wins on the battlefield.  It’s the smartest.  Semper Fi, Marine.

Game Features

  • Go closer to the experience of the US Marines on campaign with the ultimate tactical infantry shooter
  • Stand together with 4 player drop-in drop-out online co-op multiplayer in campaign mode and standalone Fire Team Engagements
  • Become immersed in an engrossing narrative which unfolds over three acts in campaign mode
  • Play as Grenadier, Scout, Rifleman and Automatic Rifleman classes, each with unique strengths and weaknesses for increased replayability
  • Earn and spend XP on weapons, attachments and abilities for each of the fireteam’s specialists
  • Call in Combat Support such as Mortars, Howitzers and JDAMs, whilst AH-1Z Helicopters and A-10 Ground Attack Aircraft provide Close Air Support

 

 

 

The game tosses you right in, you get assigned to a squad as one of your first deployments. You get to choose between four classes, each class you can change the load out with weapons, grenades, claymores and more. The classes are, Rifle man, grenadier, scout and Auto Rifle man. Each class you can earn points to upgrade that core skill. The weapons are easily made to fit your type of play style, you can at any time change to fire rate from single shot, burst and full auto. This alone can save you in a jam and make the difference with conserving ammo for the entire mission. You will also have the ability’s to call in air support and mortar strikes to level buildings or clear out high number of hostels.

 

 

We have yet to talk about the amazing beautiful graphics and detail put into the game, the back rounds and scenes have just enough put into them as the characters them self. The detail is truly not forgotten, with the weapons put into your hands the look is almost as you are right the in battle. The constant dialogue in the game is a treat, and a distraction. It’s great to get a constant reminder and chatter with jokes, but yet when trying to make it to the way points or a certain mission objective the Squad leader will keep yelling at you to get to a area or on the back of a truck and you can only move so fast.  You might find yourself telling the T.V. to “Shut up”.

 

 

 

The multiplayer pairs you with 3 other players or 3 of your and allows you to work on missions with co-op. the AI isn’t bad, but working together with your buddies is great. Even if you are not the squad leader you can still give options and set points that other members can choose to meet or follow them.  But as the leader you can decide the mission by ether flanking or straight up the middle and order for suppressing fire. The right orders can make the entire difference of the outcome of the mission. As a side note it is best to work as a team rather than becoming a one man army and trying to handle the objectives by yourself. If you do this, most likely you will fail and you must not understand the idea of co-op or team play.

 

 

The controls, well, there are a lot. You have to remember you need to always give you squad orders and commands. So you need to not only be careful and watch out for yourself you need to also take care of your squad members. If one of them get wounded or downed you can heal them and patch them up. As the same, if you get hit you can heal yourself, or if you are downed you can order a team member to come patch you up, or you have the choice to bleed out and start the mission at the mission at the last check point.

 

 

Operation Flashpoint Red River is great to play and has very high replay ability, with different choices to make with flanking or air strikes and more, you have tons of options you can do and with an open world to explore you have countless options and different ways the mission can go.

    I would love to try this game out with real people in co-op but from what you said in your review there seems to be a lot of controls and buttons i’d need to learn. Def worth a try though
