Operation Flashpoint
Bohemia Interactive's Cold War combat game Operation Flashpoint headed up the list as the best game of 2001. Set during a fictional conflict between the Soviet Union and NATO, the game sported an unusual mix of pedestrian first person action and vehicle-based combat on land and in the air. With vast open landscapes to battle your way over and a wide range of pulse-quickening missions, from commando raids against Russian forces to full-blown assaults featuring squads of AI soldiers backed up by tanks and APCs, it was one of the most ambitious games of the year and proof once again that the PC is far from dead, despite the arrival of a new generation of consoles.

Congratulations to BIS!
