"A game for more serious gamers"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very hard game. Make sure you have patients and some idea of tactics.

"OFP with some new stuff"
3 stars"

Much like the Operation Flashpoint, the game hardly features the best graphics and features numerous bugs (thankfully a few less than OFP) It has the same gameplay, controls are a bit more fluid and the vehicles are still as annoying as ever lol.

For players who have yet to play Operation Flashpoint, then perhaps you should try that as if you could save yourself some $$$. For those that enjoyed OFP even with the bugs and such, then this game will probably be what you are looking for.

IMO this game lacks creativity, with basically the same armor units from the first and even the infantry looking the same. The campaign was boring with afew extremely nasty mission which seem impossible until you get lucky and a tank doesn't spawn where it should. Multiplayer can be fun, once most people pick up some good skills, as when i was online earlier, it was full of n00bs who got bored and started shooting stuff because they couldn't see any enemy. Alas the enemy patrol was about 100m away.

Mmmm enough rambling, this game is for FANS of military sims, not the battlefield series

"Totally awesome"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Well i don't know why people with dual have problems as my Arma is patched up to v1.05 and work perfect on full tho me only have athlon 3200 and 7600GT.

Any way, the life is this game is MP which totally rocks! tho there are no NZ server :( hint hint :) there is no more of this stupid rambos, try it in this game and your will be a very dead rambo. This game is about team work and this is where it rocks and is a blast and keeps me going all weekend.

About the graphics, who really cares? they get the job done and in my opinion the vehicle and models look really good. and trying to compare it to Oblivion is dumb. I do love Oblivion tho are very bored of it now, the world is what, a 10th the size of Arma map? so obviously they couldn't have super graphics on it otherwise the requirements would be huge.

Lastly there is so much in Arma that is huge, the tactics and depth that is available is unbelievable. Check this page out if you don't believe me: http://dslyecxi.com/armattp.html

Graphics = 4/5 Sound = 4/5 (no Hollywood gilts in this game, all realistic sound and timing. fire a rocket into the distance and explodes and there is delay in the sound like real life.) Gameplay = 5/5 Multiplay = 5/5 Overall = Kick ass!

"Not good."
1 stars"

I love military shooters and looked forward to giving this series a good run. Unfortunately this is a far from finished product that has been released too early and uses a dated engine with lots of bugs and a slow running section of huge maps. The same insane audio is still there with a voice blaring co-ordinates that make little sense. Oh did I mention the AI? They are happy to stand around gleefully whilst getting taken out!

On a system that plays oblivion and MTW2 at high specs, this game barely even loaded the first mission. My system has a dual core processor 2G of RAM and a 512M 7800GS card. This game has far too many bugs and is using an old engine. The graphics are last gen for sure, this isn't everything of course, however the gameplay does not make up for it.

Poor AI. Poor audio for commands. Dated graphics. Hug maps and engine will drag your system out sloooowwly.

Save yourself the pain and cash and go get GRAW/2, or wait for the patches as this stinks.......­............!
