Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis (Poseidon: Operation Apocalypse) Bohemia Interactive / Codemasters 2001

On a fictional island set in 1985, suddenly Russian military activities have been noticed. After investigation, a renegade General is responsible for it. Luckily the western part of the world has military forces on a closely located island so that immediate actions can take effect. During later gameplay the player has to lead this organisation; fly and control tanks and helicopters. Once in-game the player is provided with a map, compass, watch, and a notebook (which contains the aforementioned briefing for reviewing). Depending on the mission the player may be required to participate in and complete a variety of tasks, from simply driving a truck or guarding bases to attacking or defending various objectives (whether on foot or while crewing a vehicle), patrols, reconnaissance and sabotage behind enemy lines (as a special forces soldier), air support (as a helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft pilot), or any combination of these and more. Once the player is given command of an AI-controlled squad, they can issue their men a large variety of orders, either via a series of menus or simply by selecting the soldiers and clicking a place in the world or the map. Besides advising them how to act (e.g., don't fire and stay low), players can order their men to fire at specific targets, move to a certain location, get in or out of vehicles, watch certain directions, man fixed weapons, and even some 'special' actions such as repairing vehicles. OFP's multiplayer features a wide variety of game modes including: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, Domination, Demolition, Cooperative, and Capture The Island. There's enough varied action happening in this huge area. A bit frustrating is the limited chance to save the game. It's only possible to save once during the whole game! But in case of realism and motivated action, this Operation Flashpoint game is a top game. This game is the base of the virtual military simulator VBS1 which is used by several countries to train their soldiers.
