    So I know many of us has got our sights on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and may have overlooked this game. Anywho, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is a different kind of shooter compared to Call of Duty. It focuses on a much larger environment, longer range gunfighting that what we're use to in COD, a less forgiving health system, and vehicular combat on a simulator(ish) scale.

    In short, it's a more realistic FPS. Compared to the 1st Operation Flashpoint, the interface is more streamlined (thank god >.<) but I think that the combat will be as hardcore as it was before.

    One thing I'm looking forward to in this game in the 4 player Co-op. Could get some guys, running through the field, 1 being a sniper giving covering fire while a LMG gunner is keep the enemy heads down while the other 2 finished them off. Or we all could get in a tank, 1 be driver, another gunner, and have 1 commander.

    So talking about this stuff is good and all but no real fun unless I posted some videos. Here ya go!

    Well, this game will be coming out next week. I'm a little on the fence about getting right away and I want to see more reviews of it first before blindly rushing in and buying it (like I would for Tom Clancy games, yah'huk!).

    I hope that I don't spend too much time in this game walking from Point A to B; which was the case with ARMA: Combat Operations, a game made by the creators of the 1st Operation Flashpoint that played very similar to OF.

    If it's any good, I'd love to tackle the campaign co-op style!

    Extra edit!:

    So as I'm stalking around gamefaqs. I founds me a link to the 1st 10 minutes of this game. I think its the PC version though, I'm not 100% sure and the website in some other language, but at least the video is streaming well!

    Linky!
