Operation Flashpoint Screenshots
Gamers are caught in the grips of the Cold War, where a new Soviet
regime led by Mikhail Gorbachev, polarizes the political and social
ideologies of the country. Having seized control of an island community,
underground resistance groups have mobilized in opposition to the new
policies of perstroika and glasnost. The new Soviet government, unable
to fight the resistance, calls upon NATO to act as a peacekeeping force
and help restore order to the region. NATO responds with Operation Flashpoint.
Players assume the role of an exiled Soviet turned NATO private who
has returned to combat the forces that drove him out of his homeland.
Operation Flashpoint presents players with one of the most unique, realistic
and complete battle experiences to ever appear on the PC platform. Genre
classifications are ignored as players transition from ground battles
to commandeering vehicles to piloting airborne gun ships, all the while
moving up through the ranks within their unit. As players advance in
rank, they are able to issue orders to their squad mates via an easy-to-use
keyboard command system.
