I'm constantly arguing with friends and family about how great Operation Flashpoint and they always give me stick about how bad the graphics are. Well now I have a top PC magazine on my side. Granted the graphics are looking dated now, but who cares, the game simply rocks.
For those of you who can't or havn't seen the magazine's small blurb, here is a transcript from the section called "The PC Zone A-List".

"Operation Flashpoint Gold
Now available with the tricky Red Hammer addon, Flashpoint has become to tactical action what Half Life was to shooters. Fight on foot or in tanks, fly planes or even direct an entire platoon, this game is total war-in your face and on a massive scale. The graphics are an acquired taste, but they convey a sense of wide-open warfare perfectly. Its the ultimate military simulation, with stunning atmosphere and superb missions.
