Hello the other day my freind called geazer got a full money back refund for returning operation flashpoint 2.
EB Games are giveing full refunds for this game because it says on back of box dedicated servers, and last week the minipulative pommy developer officaly anounced no ded servers.
And that is false advertizeing.
I wonder if legal aid help pensioners.

Whilst the lack of dedicated servers is disappointing, it's not a game-breaker - for me at least. I still have fun playing co-op (or annihilation/infiltration) with friends, even if it does have to be peer-to-peer (like Borderlands and other PC games these days).

I agree with Unknown, no ded-servers is disappointing but the game is still worth having. It does however limit servers which I would think is more damaging to the developers than the players so it makes no sense to me, with this particular game, why they wouldn't have dedicated server support.

A shame I cannot get my money back on Steam.

Default sings in the chorus - THIS GAME BLEW CHUNKS!


I was playing the original OFP and it was the beez knees of the day when it came to military sims. Not to say it was perfect, but it was the best option out there.

HOW THE HELL did anyone deserve their money in the Quality Assurance department of this game I do not know. What a sham. No ded servers and the worst multiplayer ping issues of any game I can think of in recent memory.

I hope all game developers are noticing the trend.... AvP2, MW2, OFP2... all dying in the arse quickly because of a simple 'underestimate'.

Fingers crossed.

Rant complete.

Thanks for your time!!! lol
