5.0 out of 5 stars Great Mix of Sim and FPS June 8, 2011
By Greg
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have only played this game for a few hours.

Likes:
Graphics are well rendered and the backgrounds look very life like.
You get the pink mist when one shoots enemies.Weapons are rendered well as are vehicles.

Sound is good I had no problems hearing commands.Good soundtrack when one is riding in Hummers.

Gameplay is fun the controls differ from Dragon Rising.I liked how the game plays.Riding around during the first mission with evryone chatting and then a IED taking out a vehicle.Then having to secure a perimeter to do a CASEVAC brought back memories for me from my tour.The smack talking by AI teamates is amusing and also brought back memories.
Combat can get intense one bullet in the right spot and you are done.Cover is important as a bullet can bounce back off a wall and kill you.No hiding out and healing like other games.You have to bandage yourself or you will bleed out.
Enemies will try to surpress and flank you.One must adjust for bullet drop, unlike COD no 1000 meter handgun kills.
Squad command is very important to success in this game.I am still learning the commands at this time.I also like that the enemy will fall back if enough firepower is brought upon them.Once enemies are eliminated no more surprises.Unlike other games where the keep coming until you move up.
One can also get unlocks and can customize their loadout which is a improvement over Dragon rising.

Dislikes:So far my only gripe is the poor friendly AI.
They have a bad habit of running in front of you and getting shot.And I found I have to give commands multiple times til they comply.

Multiplayer:Internet in my area is poor so I cannot give a review of online play.
Unlike Dragon Rising Fireteam engagments are online only.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Change of Pace June 19, 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This review is coming from a person who dislikes Activision's Call of Duty franchise, but loves EA's Battlefield franchise. Also, I thought Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising was not very good, though in some circles it is thought of as superior to this, which is fine. If simply comparing Dragon Rising to Red River, Dragon Rising is the more hardcore of the two, I think.

The bad:
Sgt. Knox is more of a Drill Instructor (these are Marines) than a true leader. He threatens and curses nearly all the time. I understand that there are moments that a leader needs to be hard on his men, but this is ridiculous. While it lends itself as not necessarily improving the "realism" when you are in his presence, it is often times humorous and entertaining the first time through.

As well as Sgt. Knox is concerned, I know little or nothing of my squad mates. I'm not sure if they just threw this squad together at the last minute or what, but I found myself not really caring or feeling regret if one of them died. All those long vehicle rides and I don't get to learn anything from the people I am commanding? I thought it would have been a nice touch to find out certain things about them. I think I might have "worked" a little extra hard to keep them alive (using the command a little carefully). I know it's not really real, but knowing Barletto has a newborn baby or Soto had a rough first tour of duty may have been kind of cool. Though, seriously, this is very minor stuff. Instead I command 3 robot type characters void of emotion.

The lack of competitive multiplayer is disappointing, but if it was going to be as bad as Dragon Rising, they made the right call.

4.0 out of 5 stars The surprise of the month June 8, 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising I was hesitant to even try this game. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the problems that were prevelant in Dragon Rising had been dealt with in Red River. For one, running in this game doesn't make you motion sick because it doesn't feel like you are on a pogo stick. Second, the gun shakes about how it would in real life, unlike DR which made you think your arm was a jackhammer. The gameplay is fun and realistic without being too frustrating, and the maps are wide open, allowing you to get creative with your sight lines and angle of approach. All in all, definately good for someone looking to try for a change of pace from the usual Battlefield and CoD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Dragon Rising June 15, 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Red River (RR)is a tactical FPS that has a decent single player campaign but the true focal point of the game is coop multi-player. This game differs from other FPS in that most battles are fought beyond 100 meters so it is best to use the "scout" class at least in the beginning. The enemy flank effectively and you will be shot from all directions if you do not keep moving. Night missions are tough because I had difficulties using the night vision to kill enemies. On hard core, the game is very, very difficult because there are no indications of enemy position. I killed more than acceptable friendlies in the fog of war on hard core.

If you run and gun = you die.

In terms of graphics: much better compared to Dragon Rising. RR has better gamma rendering, color-tones, and just sharper. I remember saying to myself with DR, this game looks like PS2 graphics. RR is differently improved and sharper on my set up. Graphics are 720p with some minor tearing. Smoke and fire could have been great in this game with a little more work. Maybe it is better on PC.

Sounds of guns are average. explosions sound good. Voice acting is over the top but acceptable.

Game play is much improved over DR. to throw a grenade, as an example, you hold circle button (no need to access menu to throw grenade).

I think ARMA 2 Arrowhead is the best military simulation on the market. I think RR could have pointed in that direction for us hard core fans of FPS. RR is the only game that comes close for consoles but make no mistake about it, nothing compares to the realism of ARMA 2. RR shines with 4 person coop of humans.

My only complaint thus far is I had trouble connecting to games. I would say 6/10 I get a connection error message.
