Conflict: Denied Ops Demo Impressions |

I quickly went through the demo by myself the other day, and I plan to go through it again with a friend. I’ve read about this demo online, and I remember that the gamer complained that there wasn’t anything special about the game.

Frankly, most FPS’s blur together, and none of them really have much that’s unique or special. What makes a good FPS these days is excellent execution plus the new maps that come with it. You have to admit, innovation in an FPS these days is pretty rare (with the exception of CoD4’s levelling up and perk system).

Therefore, I liked Conflict: Denied Ops. It had a small level to go through, and it was executed well. Some of the controller button assignments were a bit flaky, but I assume that I’ll be able to swap them out for a more standard configuration in the final game. (The demo did have three different configs, none really to my liking.)

I liked the ability to quickly switch between two different characters, though on at least one occasion I commanded the other character to join mine, but he got stuck on a piece of geometry and I needed to take over. But this won’t be an issue if two people are playing the game, and this is exactly how I plan to play this game. The demo was rather short, so I haven’t a full idea yet of what the final game will be like. But so far I give it a thumbs up. I hope the final game lives up to the promise.

    I have to disagree. The demo was HORRIBLE in my opinion. It is a mediocre shooter. The graphics were good but the system mechanics/play mechanics are quite bad. Of course after I played COD4, i expect FPS to be somewhat as good as that, but this is below. I found the game boring and dull. Will never play it again, even the co-op wasn’t that much fun.

    With regards to the controller configuration it constantly amazes me why developers do not allow custom configurations which would simply deal with any controller issue. I can only assume the develpers that don’t do it are either lazy or stupid.
    With regards to the game…average. But I may rent it so my brother and I can play co-op.
