Operation Flashpoint: Red River

Gun runners

Fearing the lethality of their bullets and the scarcity of your own. Faced with constant dilemmas to engage or retreat, to scour for ammo or make do with dwindling supplies, to turn back and heal a fallen comrade or push on and safeguard the rest of your squad.

Moments like these separate the Operation Flashpoint series from the Rambo bravado of Call of Duty and Battlefield.
