Designed to provide a gritty, comprehensive experience of realistic modern warfare, players will battle the enemy from ground vehicles, planes, and a first-person infantry perspective in this release from Codemasters. It is not your father's Cold War when Soviet rebels mobilize in opposition to the cooperative policies of Glasnost and Perestroika. When Russia asks for help in restoring peace in the rebel-occupied territory, NATO initiates Operation Flashpoint.
Operation Flashpoint includes a single-player mode with stand alone missions, a multiplayer feature that allows up to eight players to battle terrorism together over a local network or the Internet, and a full campaign. During the campaign players can rise in rank, eventually taking command of a squad and issuing orders to fellow soldiers through a keyboard command system designed to be easy to learn and use. During each mission in the campaign mode users can save the game once at a time of their choosing.
This "Gold" re-release in Codemaster's signature first-person shooter series features both the original Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis and the Red Hammer expansion package, as well as a Prima strategy guide to help heroes through the trickier parts of the military adventure. ~ T.J.
