Destiny: The Taken King Review

With a new release window of 2009 for "major console platforms and PC" and a new subtitle, Codemasters has released some new media for Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising. Originally set for a 2004 release under Czech developer Bohemia Interactive, the sequel to the popular realism-centric Operation Flashpoint has been completely restarted and is now being forged in-house at Codies.

Today, they've released a new cinematic trailer and a set of 6 images referred to as "development target renders". A little odd but at least more honest than trying to pass them off as actual in-game screenshots.
The video reveals the sheer scale of Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Risings battlefield the 220km2 island of Skira, located off the eastern coast of Russia, north of Japan. This oil-rich Russian-controlled island stands on the brink of war. An airborne division of the Peoples Liberation Army of China (PLA) lands to claim the island as the sovereign possession of the Peoples Republic. Russia turns to the US for support aid and theyre quick to respond. Sending in the USS Iwo Jima, a battalion of US Marines launch an assault on the strung out but dug-in Chinese force. Can the situation be defused before this flashpoint turns white hot and an all-out global war between the superpowers erupts?
Check out the complete press release for all the details.

Coop over the net, custom missions, an awesome mission editor, realistic.

Seriously playing over the net was some of the best gaming evar

yeah everything was 2D cutouts and smudges for textures, felt like a slightly improved version of archipelagos but without a bicycle.

the game was also horribly buggy, but if you could handle the rest of the s*** i guess a few bugs wouldn't have mattered.

If that was realistic I'll be damned. Yanks might screw up, but they don't do stuff THAT badly...

This isn't being done by the people who did the first one by the way.. The spiritual successor is ArmedAssault.
