Today, a number of other military organisations are using VBS1 and even regular Flashpoint as training tools. And so it continued in a similar vein for several hours. We took delivery of the preview beta code several weeks ago and to say we were a little bit excited is akin to saying James Brown is a little bit funky.
Those of us for whom Flashpoint has been some kind of Holy Grail seem to have taken to it with the appropriate levels of reverence. But others have been put off by the seemingly complex nature of the game.
Counter-Strike already provides them with realistic-looking military ops, but it plays in a more immediate and therefore fun manner. This is not likely to be a pick-up-and-play, instant-gratification kind of a game. Cold War NATO vs Russia Soldiers seem to run around, taking cover and hitting the deck when the shooting starts, following orders and, impressively, giving them out in the middle of ever-changing tactical situations. If Bohemia can get the promised voice-over Net software working properly, and you can find players who are willing to take orders rather than the anarchistic, good for nothings that litter, then this could be a big hit online.
Other Flashpoint promises are also looking good. The multi-vehicle aspect seems to work well, with tanks proving an especially good laugh in multiplayer mode. Then there are the combat helicopters that you train up and eventually pilot. But it never feels gratuitous. Missions feel suitably grand in scale. The confusion of war is impressively realised, something of an all-important first for a game of this type.
Having said all that, let us inject a note of caution if we may. What we mean is how the game hangs together. Making the gameplay run in a fluid, enjoyable nature. Our advice, assuming Bohemia are paying any attention to us, is to let its publishers, Codemasters, take a hands-on role in the final stages, relying on its already proven talent in this field to give us the game Flashpoint deserves to be.

A Kind Of Magic Poseidon, as the project was then known, took the team almost three years to develop.
You then have campaign mode, which is by far the best way to go because of the cinematic storyline that unfolds before you. The last mode is of course Multiplayer which lets up to 16 people wage war with each other or work cooperatively. Anyway you look at it, Operation Flashpoint is a huge game that will have you itching to get on the battlefield. Cooperation from your computer controlled squad mates is a must for survival. From the very first mission until the last, the storyline sucks you in and makes you want stay until the very last bullet is fired.
The last time I became so immersed in a storyline was with Max Payne. Controlling the game is a lot like any other first person shooter, you generally use your mouse and keyboard together to maneuver your character. The vehicles that you can operate can also be controlled with this method but joystick and gamepads are also an option.
One slight negative would have to be the huge amount of keystrokes you have to remember. Once you become a squad leader you then have to also issue orders, so combine that with the radio keys and the movement and firing keys and there is a whole lot to remember. The other negative has to do with how the story was scripted.
OFP is very rigid in regards to how the story unfolds; you must go from point A to point B and then C. I tried unsuccessfully four times to play online at Gamespy, but my latency was way too high for most people to tolerate me in the game room.
I suspect OFP might even be better just because the sheer size of the maps will make for some great firefights. The attention to detail in Operation Flashpoint is wonderful. The actual characters in the game are nicely done. E backpacks are included on the player models, really giving you the feel of being an Army grunt.
