Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 might be the most high profile and most anticipated military FPS of the year, but Codemasters believes its own Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising has what it takes to stand toe-to-toe with the Activision juggernaut, as well as every other shooter coming to market over the next few months, or ever, apparently.
As the game’s lead designer, Tim Brown, explained during E3 2009, Dragon Rising will offer a very different experience than that found in other run-and-gun shooters.
“The difference in our game…is that it’s all tactical. You’re not the hero. You tip the balance, but it’s not all down to you. You’re going to rely on your guys, and they’re going to rely on you.”
Brown went on to say that Dragon Rising will be “the most realistic shooter you’re going to see on a console ever.”
Predictions don’t really come any bolder than that, so be sure to check out the rest of the interview to see what has Brown so confident.
