5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Mapped out

Fireteam Engagements work well to extend Red River's gameplay, but without competitive deathmatches, and with just two maps per scenario at present, it's only going to extend the experience by around four or five hours.

Operation Flashpoint: Red River

Battle fatigues?

Verdict

Red River's slow pace and strategic focus won't be to everyone's liking, especially console players accustomed to the high-tempo run-and-gun mechanics of Call of Duty and Battlefield. But overlook its flaws and lack of big-budget polish, and you'll find a enjoyable challenge in Codemaster's distinctive take on war. ®
