Is this as good as theoriginal Operation Flashpoint? I loved the first one so, so much. Does it measure up?

Avoid it like the plague unless you absolutely love any kind of shooters and you like wasting your time. :)

From what I read, the only thing the original Operation Flashpoint and Dragon Rising have in common is the name.

The review on my page pretty much sums up my thoughts, and that's the short version.

opfp2;DR isnt a terribad game. but they took alot of what made opfp out of it that made it fun. as a result its a fairly hollow and unenjoyable experience. if you really want to push through the hate of it pick it up for less than $5

Completely different game to the originals, completely different developers. However as a co-operative shooter it seems pretty competent; it's a cross between the realism of actual Flashpoint (the ArmA games are its true sequels), and more arcadey shooters.

doesnt live up to the name, short SP, the lack of post release support makes it a bland game.

I played with my friend in coop and it was really amazing for us. I don' think t I would enjoy even 15% of that if I played alone. There aren't similar games this gen. (if we don't count arma) . I really liked that has big areas ,vehicles, scouting area and attacking with couscous

I got it last year with a bundle and could barely play through the first mission... I uninstalled it and never look at it again.

Epic era? Lol. I played it when it was released, didnt like it at all. I did like the editor though, even with the obvious console focused engine restrictions it had. I won an I7 860 in the intel mission competition so at least I got my moneys worth.
