Rated 10 out of 10 by Jazzif Only true hardcores stick with arma!
This game has superior graphics, AI and customization options over any other game hands down. You can script the AI in mission editing, create intro movies for your own missions and just pretty much manipulate any part of the game you want. Sounds, weapons and even the factions.
If you have a computer than can run this maxed out in HD then you wont ever be able to sleep again, at least that's what happened to me. If you can rip yourself away from the editor at all then you can try the multiplayer which is amazing to say the least.
The game can be buggy at times but the game has a large community base full of modders that fix these bugs up pretty quickly. But like I said this game is only for the hardcores. You have to think and actually be awake to play it properly and enjoy it unlike lets say...world of warcraft where you could play asleep hanging upside down with an arrow in your head. Arma is a REAL game, one you won't put down for ages if you give it a good chance.

Arma 2 was nothing short of perfection. Operation arrowhead its going to add new features like working FLIR middle eastern maps and lots more. I really cant wait for this game. Just remember its not the kind of game you can pick up and be a pro with 10 minutes later. When i first played arma 2 i was very frustrated with the controls but after about a week i finally got the hang of it. And for almost a year now thats all i can play. This game doesnt get enough hype. I cant wait for this. Its a must buy for any fan of military simulation games.
Rated 2 out of 10 by jasonccc very buggy, seems unfinished like every other arma
Unfortunately I can't get my money back for this sorry mess of a game. I certainly wish I'd done more research on this series before purchasing. If you read the reviews on any of the ARMA games they all read the same, BUGGY! Missions don't finish half the time, AI is spotty at best, graphics are ok but certainly nothing out of the ordinary. This game just has a beta feel to it and just seems to be thrown together. Buying this game only gets you $40 bucks worth of disapointment and frustration!

This is hardcore real-life army simulations. Not guns blazing rock 'n roll Call of Duty. In this game, 1 bullet in a vital area, and your down. Don't listen to the bad reviews becuase they're just not hardcore enough for this game. They're probably Call of Duty junkies. If you do buy this game, you need to buy the DayZ mod becuase it's awesome. It brings the reilisticness of then war into a war of zombies. Massive multu-player, and again, hardcore gameplay. Every bullet counts.
Rated 3 out of 10 by ATrain144 Help me!
I've watched videos on it, and it looks awesome and real. The only problem is that whenever I turn it on there is a blue rectangle in the middle of the screen and it only goes away when I enter the game. When it does go away, I'm left with gray lines over a part of the screen and the game is EXTREMELY laggy and the graphics don't seem to work. If anyone reading this can help in any way, please fix through an update or tell me. Thank you- ATrain
Rated 10 out of 10 by Odie95 Best military Simulator out to date
This game beats any other military simulator out there it even tops BF and CoD series in my opinion but is buggy at times but all games have bugs and I like the mods the have for this game like the Day-Z mod its fun. the sound is OK but the is a sound mod called JSRS on a website called Armaholic but with that sound mod its a purification.

Rated 0 out of 10 by Cpt.Harris.aus why no info on these Arma games?
this is directed at ebgames- same as headline- how come there is absolutely no info on these games? and arma 2 combined operations which came out early last year is listed as not even released yet? I'm writing from Australia, where I bought Arma 2 from an EBgames store in Sydney,,,
