The lighting doesnt look very natural but atleast the transitions look good.

I wish Arma II had improved in this aspect.. since it looks perfect in some conditions but not in most (sunsets, sunrise, fog, night..).

Some discussion about OFP2 AI. I hope it grows into a more rounded and detailed topic.

LMAO -"Un-named game..."

Gee, wonder what they're talking about. If my psychic abilties serve me correct, they are referring to ARMA2, whose AI also seems to possess these abilities somewhat as well. Still we'll see what DR has to offer in the testy waters of Open World Milsim AI soon enough.

Funny ? to start please stop take every criticism about DR so personally ..

Actually I was talking about the color pallet not only of what it may look like on my eventual future computer.

But that's how most nextgen console games look like, unfortunately.

Illuminator while you're here could you enlight me please I couldn't find any answer, do Codemasters plan to release modding tools with Dragon Rising ?

I still find their graphics to overall have a very BF2 feel too it. The way its rendered, the way the shadows are cast, the model details all feel very BF2 to me...

Take their latest video (posted a page or so ago) it just looks like BF2 with a longer view distance to me...

Can't really agree with you there. At least there's no grain in ArmA2.

Fair enough, but then again, *shrugs* im kind of a fan of the grainy effect.

Either way, Grain is one of this unnecessary bells and whistles like the motion blur that has made its way into mainstream FPS's, Its nice, but I would be all right without it.

Yippe! Another game where the gun is magically stuckied to your chest, always pointing fowards unless you sprint. I have watched alot of videos of real combat, and the ONLY time i ever see a soldier point his rifle fowards is when he is engaging targets, or when he is performing a very slow scan, IE: Checking a building or in CQB.

As far as sounds go, seems to use a very similar voice comms system as arma 2,

"Enemy, at, 100, metres"

Except in dragon rising it doesn't sound like total crud...Hint hint BI, improve your sound department!

Dragon rising looks fun, but arma 2 is where realism is at.

(Even if the A-10 does sound like a vacum cleaner, and its bad ass Gau-8 sounds like a potato gun. Thank god for sound mods)

DR wont be close to the original Operation Flashpoint game. CM said somewhere that their customers possibly dont know what Operation Flashpoint is and who really developed the original.

Maybe CM found the right mix of BF2, CoD4 and JOTR - mainly to attract casual and console players? Its their project and they can do what they want - even another mainstream shooter/clone. Very often publishers and developers releasing their games without proper testing by internal/external teams. "Time is money" but sometimes this turns into "haste makes waste". I hope the best for this little simgame niche.

Hey fellas,

Will you be buying Dragon Rising?

Basically, choose an option from above, and then leave a post on what option you chose and why.

I definitely will be, because all though i know it will never achieve the realism of arma 2, i think it might be fun when i want that little cross between call of duty and a simulation.

Regards,

Rich.

No need for a new thread simply to add a poll.
