Without a doubt, Operation Flashpoint: Resistance should take its rightful place in the halls of expansion fame. Diehard fans will enjoy tt as much as a full-fledged sequel, but they can do so at an expansion price point. Run, don’t walk, to your nearest game retailer and join Nogova’s movement,
So muss eine Zusatz-CD aussehen! Ein paar neue Waffen und neue Einheiten, mehr Grafikoptionen das sind nette Dreingaben. Was Resistance so überzeugend macht, ist die fesselnde Widerstands-Kampagne. Hier merkt man auf Schritt und Tritt, dass sich die Entwickler mächtig ins Zeug gelegt haben. Für alle, die mit Operation Flashpoint Spaß hatten, ist Resistance ein Pflichtkauf.

Die Dramaturgie hätte auch ein Hollywood-Regisseur kaum besser umsetzten können. Die Story von Resistance ist filmreif und mitreißend. Viktor gehört zu den glaubwürdigsten und sympathischsten Helden der gesamten PC-Spielegeschichte. Doch Glaubwürdigkeit hin oder her: Warum hat Bohemia im zweiten Addon immer noch keine freies Speichern eingebaut? Zumindest im Kadettenmodus sollte diese Möglichkeit anwählbar sein. Damit wäre das Programm auch für Einsteiger deutlich zugänglicher. So freuen sich nur echte Flashpoint-Veteranen über Resistance – die aber richtig.
Operation Flashpoint: Resistance is a rare gem of an expansion. Priced to move, OpF fans will definitely enjoy the added features and challenging gameplay. Grab your copy and join the movement!

Als die Widerstandskämpfer kommen, um den alten Soldaten um Hilfe zu bitten, schickt er sie nach Hause. Als sie das nächste Mal an seine Tür klopfen, helfen ruhige Worte nicht mehr weiter. Sowjet-Kommandos verfolgen sie zur Farm von Victor Troska. Jetzt muss er sich entscheiden: Wird er zum Rebellen oder zum Verräter? Vor diesem Wendepunkt erzählt das vermutlich längste In-Game-Intro der Spielehistorie die Hintergrundgeschichte von Resistance, die zeitlich vor den Ereignissen des Hauptprogramms angesiedelt ist.

Listan på förbättringar kan göras längre än vad som ryms på dessa sidor, men jag vill i förbigående nämna de förbättrade texturerna och utökade grafikinställningarna. Spelet är nu mer krävande, men du kan dra ner inställningarna för att få det att flyta bra ändå. Nätkoden är omgjord för att förbättra flytet i multiplay och ett flertal kartor har tillkommit, samt givetvis nya vapen (bland annat pistoler som kan bäras tillsammans med ett huvudvapen) som även kan ses i kampanjen. Nya fordon inkluderar en jeep, en motorcykel och en rysk helikopter. Sist, men inte minst, har vi givetvis den nya ön Nogova. Här hittar vi stora städer, små byar och ändlösa skogar. Broar, dalar och berg borde ge inspiration till mängder av nya kartor och kampanjer från användarna, speciellt med den utmärkta editor som fortfarande finns med. Bohemia har åstadkommit en enormt solid expansion som är ett måste om du gillade originalet.

Despite the hangovers of a cumbersome interface and some annoying bugs, it's a quality addition to what was and remains the best tactical action game around. Those who may have given up on Flashpoint halfway through are the only ones who need think twice before purchasing.
Game Chronicles
Operation Flashpoint: Resistance does exactly what an expansion pack should. It expands and improves upon the original without changing any of the core design elements that made it a success. The entire concept of guerrilla warfare is a fresh and relatively unexplored gaming concept that puts a great spin on this combat simulation. After playing countless military games where you have virtually unlimited resources and firepower, it was a real wake-up call to actually have to scrap and fight for every weapon, bullet, and grenade.
Generally, Operation Flashpoint: Resistance, despite any upgrades or changes, enjoys the same strengths and suffers from the same weaknesses as Operation Flashpoint itself. In other words, despite some real problems, Resistance offers a memorable setting and the sort of intense, intelligent challenges that can make tactical shooters so much fun.

While I still shudder when I see game add-ons with a $30 price tag, there’s enough going for Operation Flashpoint: Resistance that fans of the original should check it out. Its full campaign, enhanced multiplayer mode and updated graphics are definite pluses, while the unconventional warfare storyline makes Resistance a unique offering. There are some AI issues and a few oversights in the sound department, but overall, the rich new environment helps recharge the Flashpoint franchise for another year.

Annoncé comme une simple extension (à l'image de ce qu'était Red Hammer), Resistance est un bien plus gros morceau. Tout d'abord, il remet tout à plat question multijoueur, améliore considérablement le graphisme, et étend les possibilités du moteur et du gameplay. Pour ne rien gâcher, la campagne solo est tout bonnement excellente. Un bonheur pour le fan.
Une extension indispensable pour les fans de Flashpoint qui souhaitent prolonger le plaisir de jeu. La nouvelle campagne est excellente, et les améliorations graphiques rendent ce titre d'autant plus réaliste et immersif. Un add-on vivement conseillé, d'autant qu'il devrait être proposé à un prix très abordable.
Sure, I said a lot of not so nice things about the game. I really wish they had been fixed. At the same time, Flashpoint still has a lot going for it even though the frustration. And Resistance offers enough new content to be deemed a worthy expansion pack. Those that had a lot of fun with OpFlash looking for a reason to get back into it will probably be pretty happy with what they find. Just don't expect any revolutionary changes to gameplay this time out.

Here’s a tough call to make. On the one hand, Resistance is a terrific add-on. Then again, the game that it’s built on, Operation Flashpoint (November 2001; PCG rating: 70%), is a tactical action game with significant flaws. How do you score that?
Game Over Online
When it was initially released though, Flashpoint was very much the dark horse amongst its peers and it'll need more to keep its success in the face of titles like Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, Delta Force and the forthcoming SWAT. Codemasters' response is a meaty story. However, with first person shooters like Medal of Honor, Wolfenstein and Soldier of Fortune all coming out with increasing attention to realism as well as story, Resistance sets itself up against two groups of first person shooters and in the final analysis, comes up short against both.

Hoewel de graphics opgepoetst zijn, is er geen sprake van een spectaculaire verandering; wat alleen maar bevestigt dat gameplay de grote steunpilaar was, en nog steeds is.
All in all, Operation Flashpoint is one of those games that you either really love, or hate to bottomless depths of your soul. While as a gamer, I fall into the latter category, since my utter lack of planning ability and tactics made for a slow, painful gaming experience, as a reviewer, I can appreciate the game for what it is - an all-inclusive warfare simulator, that stresses realism, teamwork and tactics for a very rewarding experience. Resistance brings new pieces to the game, while improving upon the core engine...if only a little bit. The game, while dated by today's standards, still has some life left in it. The mission editor and multiplayer (I tried that, but it wasn't a good experience for me) are perfect additions to this extremely popular tactical game. If that kind of thing is your bag, baby, then there is no reason you shouldn't own this game by now.

Operation FlashPoint was één van de meest gehypte games van 2001, en de opzet van deze tactical shooter zal daar niet vreemd aan zijn. Net als in de originele versie begin je in Resistance als een eenvoudige jongen met de ambities van een groengestreepte huisslak, om te eindigen als een groengestreepte vechtmachine die hele bataljons, tanks, helikopters en ander wapentuig onder zich heeft
