Dec 17, 2013The fact that there are two players, one off which HAS to use a sniper, one with regular guns, breaks the game completely.
The two players are split up constantly but the sniper can't really defend himself from close range, so what's he to do? The sniper rifle isn't very powerful either.
Apart from that the gameplay is pretty standard and the game has nothing going for it.
The best thing I can say about this game is that the gameplay/controls work fine.… Expand
Jan 21, 2013WORST GAME EVER.... There is not one single redeeming quality in this piece of utter garbage, I have never actually burned a game before until I was unlucky enough to come into possession of this abomination. The best part was watching it smoulder in the incinerator knowing that at least one gamer would be spared from the evil contained within. Awful, Hideous, Befouled, **** Never buy this game.
Nov 13, 2013Split-screen co-op campaign is a blast with each person taking on a specialist role. One person plays as a heavy machine-gunner, and the other, as a weakling sniper, working together to shoot chumps and survive. What more could you ask for in a military-style FPS?
There is a nice, long, challenging co-op campaign specifically designed for two players, with a satisfying level of gore and excellent graphical effects. The on-screen effects for getting injured present a convincing illusion of receiving pain.
REALLY enjoyed how the game doesn't immediately force you to end when you kill friendly people with collateral damage. For that reason, this Conflict: Denied Ops is better than any Call of Duty/Modern Warfare game. When killing friendly characters is forbidden by a game engine, it's a sure sign of over-produced, carebear hand-holding that reduces player freedom and truly breaks immersion.
Since playing Conflict: Denied Ops, I've been desperately seeking more graphic, split-screen co-op FPSs with friendly-fire, like this. Sadly, most FPSs these days are too high budget to allow players to feel like pioneers and do things the designers didn't intend.… Expand
This isn't as cinematic or exciting as "Call of Duty 4," but for people who want to clear rooms instead of triggering events, there's a lot to enjoy. For bullet-junkies jonesing for a fix, it's a perfectly decent form of violent methadone. [Mar 2008, p.110]
If you're a fan of Conflict and/or shooters in general, you're likely to find Denied Ops shallow and dull. The two-man control system doesn't work properly. The visuals are ugly. The script is sub-Armageddon. Yes, it's easy to pick up and play. But if you're after an experience with real challenge and depth, you won't want to.
