I have been waiting on both titles for some time now. ArmA II should actually be named Operation Flashpoint 3 because the development team (Bohemia) worked on the original Flashpoint. Operation Flashpoint 2 is really just a new game developed by a new team from Codemasters. I have high hopes for both titles but I wonder which game will come out on top as far as review scores and "the ultimate military/tactical game".
ArmA II looks to be later in the beta phase while Flashpoint 2 is in pre-Alpha.
Expect ArmA II sometime in Q1 09 and Flashpoint 2 in Q2 09.
Both teams look to be raising the bar with graphics and realism but who do you think will come on top?
Good question. OFP2 has a huge publisher behind it so it will likely be more polished out of the box since it is less likely to be rushed but both games are striving for realism and both look very good so far. IN the end, we hardcore wargamers are the real winners.
Considering Operation Flashpoint 2 isnt based off of Virtual Battlespace, which is what makes OFP and Arma so realistic. And the fact that OFP2 isnt even developed by BI, I thinks its safe to say it wont be anywhere near the realism levels of OFP/Arma/VBS.
If it isnt based off Virtual Battlespace its not worth playing.
atony12 posted... doesnt look like they did a whole lot with arma 2,specially with all the bugs,bad sound effects, and not to good gameplay arma ruined arma 2 for me, i think ofp will come out on top without a fight.
from what i've seen of arma 2 gameplay, most of the sounds seem to be reused from arma. Codemasters is saying their game is going to be loud and chaotic like real vehicles and weapons are, i hope they pull it off though.
