OPERATION FLASHPOINT – RED RIVER is a military-themed first-person shooter game for the Xbox 360 console in which American troops launch a campaign against insurgents in a foreign country. The game was classified '15' for strong violence and language.

The player is required to complete a series of missions involving the strategic deployment of troops in encounters with enemy forces. These inevitably involve extended exchanges of firepower from a variety of military weapons, including automatic rifles, smoke grenades and explosives. These exchanges usually take place over long distances so that, although impacts from gunfire result in bloody effects, the detail is not realistic and the blood that decorates the various battle environments is lacking in a strong graphic quality. There is no capability to dismember enemy targets or to inflict further damage to opponents after they have been killed. This presentation of violence accords with the requirements of the BBFC's Guidelines at '15' which state 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable. Strong sadistic or sexualised violence is also unlikely to be acceptable'.

The Guidelines at '15' also allow for the 'frequent use of strong language (for example, 'fuck')' and the game contains numerous examples of such language, some of which is used in conjunction with crude sex references in the banter between the soldier characters.
