Codemasters' elusive war sequel, Operation Flashpoint 2, has reared its head and is looking rather stunning in the pages of the latest PC Gamer UK, on shelves now. PC Gamer calls Codies' war zone "the most mind-bogglingly vast and mercilessly realistic battlefield gaming has ever known," which couldn't be higher praise if they tried, really.
"Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising is the sequel to the best soldier sim ever created," says PC Gamer. "It's a game being built to exacting specifications by military obsessives, to simulate the authentic behaviour of battle-hardened troops and push PC's to their limits." And by the look of these new screenshots we've been supplied, it's going to push our PCs off the side of the desk and out the window. Here's hoping the looks and framerates can be equal on 360 and PS3.
The full preview in Issue 190 contains eight pages of new info and details on how Codemasters is pain-stakingly recreating the weapons and maneuvers of a real soldier, including the beefiest-looking assault rifle we've ever seen. It's looking and sounding very promising indeed. You can find the full article on UK newsstands right now, or when we post it on Friday, July 11.
