Operation Flashpoint: Red River
Operation Flashpoint: Red River is a tactical first-person shooter and a sequel to the 2009 Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. Players choose between four classes of Marines: rifleman, grenadier, scout, or automatic rifleman, and are given the option to play the campaign co-operatively or solo. Gained experience allows the player to unlock weapons and perks.
Outlaw 2 Bravo, a United States Marine Corps fireteam, is sent out to take care of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement after an attack made on a U.S. forward operating base in Afghanistan.
Operation Flashpoint: Red River, received mixed reviews, with an average score of 68%, praised for its aspects of being a tactical squad-based shooter, but criticized for its poor AI and voice acting.
If you've played its predecessor, Dragon Rising, then Red River should feel fairly easy as there's no Hardcore mode to worry about. Still, this is a high 2-star rating, as obtaining Gold on all Campaign missions can be tough at times, as well as the Fire Team engagement mode. There is only one online trophy, which requires you to play with a full squad of four friends.
Expect around 50-60 hours of gameplay, depending on your skills.
The first thing you'll want to do is simply play the game from beginning to end, while getting used to the controls and environments. You'll be earning a number of story-related trophies along the way, as well as probably unlocking a few others naturally.
Once you've completed your playthrough and have a good feel for the command and tactical aspects, you can start working on getting Gold on all the Campaign missions. In order to earn Gold, you'll need to complete each mission quickly and efficiently. Along the way, you'll be leveling up your class. If possible, while still being able to earn Gold, change classes once you've maxed out the level, to work towards the outlaw 2's Hero trophy.
Next, once you have all your Golds, it's time to finish maxing out all four classes. Repeating the FTE Combat Sweep mission is a good way to earn experience points and grind your characters to their maximum levels.
Now, it's time to enter and complete the Fire Team Engagement mode, in order to unlock the Get To The Chopper! trophy. This is probably the most difficult trophy in the game, as you'll need to survive 16 waves of enemies, and escape using the chopper. We recommend saving this for near the end, as having your characters leveled up will make it a little easier.
Finally, there's the one online trophy, With A Little Help, which requires you to play online with 3 friends. If you're having trouble finding people, check out the boosting forums under our Links tab.
If there are any other trophies you still need, then now's the time to simply mop them up, and get that Platinum.
