    I had some fun playing this game co-op, but the single player campaign seemed too scripted for my tastes. Even in multiplayer, it's fairly noticeable that the enemy AI is somewhat lacking. Outside of the scripted event... Read Full Review

    Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis.

    An ambitious army sim, but with probably the same ratio of fun to tedium to frustration as the real thing
