    Flashpoint Redemption?

    I was VERY skeptical about buying Red river, and to be honest, the only reason i did was that i have brought every single flashpoint and expansion up to date and have only been let down once... Of course, we all know tha... Read Full Review

    Less tactics. More Cinematics

    Operation Flashpoint: Red River. In most cases, it's near impossible to review a sequel without referencing it's predecessor. And in this case, I find, that this game defects from it's predecessor's objective from th... Read Full Review

    A game of two halves; and not for a die-hard CoD fan. Also, you'll need some friends...

    To say Red River is a 'good game' is probably not entirely correct. The AI is terrible, the constant swearing is pointless, and the graphics are poor. To be fair, the skyboxes are great: the static backgrounds could ... Read Full Review

    Gamespot Review for this game is just bad. :D

    This game is probably the most tactical game i've ever played on Xbox 360. A.I. has improved a lot than its predecessor Dragon Rising. It really depends on how you control your A.I squad mates and i have never been frust... Read Full Review

    Red river runs dry.

    Personally I thought Gamespot were a little generous in their review. What have they done to the series? They have taken a hardcore military shooter and dumbed it down to a level where it no longer deserves to have the "... Read Full Review

    Hmmm just not there...

    Hmmm this game... What to say really? It is far better than Dragon Rising lets put it that way but has left some major things behind... It does a good job of making you feel immersed in the war. You really do feel li... Read Full Review

    Not for everyone but.....

    This review is very subjective. I am not just looking at the game itself but I am comparing it to other FPS out in the market. Before I start I would like to point out several things 1) This is the first Flashpoint gam... Read Full Review

    Let's go Bravos

    Operation flashpoint red river is not great as its original game. It lake some essence and don't seems much original. One major thing is about the map. There is not that kind of wide open space that we had in O.P.D.R.in ... Read Full Review
