Official trailer to the game Operation Flashpoint.


The year is 1985, and Mikhail Gorbachev has come to power in the USSR. While his Glasnost and Perestroika reforms are welcomed by western governments, there are communist hardliners in his own government that are unsympathetic to his cause.

One of these men, a fanatic hardline general called Aleksei Guba, is determined to bring down Gorbachev and make himself the next leader of Russia. Guba commands an army on the island base of Kolgujev. Nearby is Everon; an independent republic, and Malden; another republic which has a strong NATO presence. Guba invades Everon, crushes the militia force there, and secretly plans to take the war to the Americans.

The NATO presence on Malden, under the command of the American Colonel Blake, moves in to investigate the loss of contact with Everon, and reports of invasion by an 'unknown hostile force'. When a helicopter of troops sent to investigate doesn't return, Blake orders a full scale invasion of Everon, not knowing about the Soviets, and the deadly conflict that would lie ahead.

Still one of the best games of all time. Infinite replay value, engaging storyline, good graphics for the time that can even be improved with mods, and a large support community. If only we could have a game this good every year, instead of once a decade.

This was just epic. My best memories of the game are from when myself and my dad would go into the editor and make some huge epic missions. Then both of use would play them across the lan and kick some ass, we could spend 3 or 4 hours doing all of this and always at the end we would have a race back to the base we had created. So much nostalgia it's really hard to believe it was almost 15 years ago
