The Pros:Plenty of realism in the gameplay, makes you feel like you're there. A real challenge to work from the beginning to the end. Online gameplay is a real challenge, tests your skills.
The Cons:You have to scroll through a big list for weapons. Missions take a long time, not too much casual play. Can be too difficult for some players.

It was designed to realistically portray modern infantry combat and allows users to play as either an infantry soldier, tank commander, helicopter pilot, or Special Forces member. And the world is a pure sandbox, as every single building can be entered, all vehicles operated, and all ammunition scavenged. Note that the AI was designed using actual US training manuals, ensuring perilous battles that demand genuine skill to win. Suffice it to say, Dragon Rising is for serious gamers willing to invest time and effort into mastering gameplay. Of course, there are varied difficulty levels to allow beginners a chance as well.
Additional features include co-op gameplay and competitive multiplayer, advanced visual effects (realistic fire, dust/smoke effects, etc), and a detailed plot involving Mikhail Gorvachev.
