America's Army: True Soldiers
Forget the bad reviews, this is an all star game
all right, first off, forget the bad reviews. They obviously are used to the running and gunning of Call of Duty or Battlefield, this is any thing but CQB. You engage targets from long range and they are pretty much a dot. The charachters are amazing and you gain a special bond. I had the original xbox game and if it is half the game that was, it is worth buying. Yes there is a hard time sniping, but its like real life.bullet drop, lift, all of that. u have to get the hang of it. Assault rifles even have drop. It is a tactical game and if you dont like games like that dont buy this game. But if you weant to experience what it is like to be a true soldier, buy this game. The graphics arnt the best, but theyre not the worst either. For any hardcore shooter enthusiast, buy this game. You wont regret it
i personly think that the game was very good. the story line of the game is only training with paint rounds. but if you are going into the army or marines it will help give you a feel of what boot camp or bct is going to be like. b/c the whole game even online it tells you to stick with your team at all times and it will reward you for doing just that. its a very good training tool i think .b/c if one of your teamates is hit they wont die until they bleed out teaching people valuble teamwork skills b/c you have time to heal them. but the graphics are not the best. and its very challinging b/c it makes your charicter huff and puff when your spring or jogging and if your trying to aim you'll swing all around. but when you rank your charicter up it stops this from happing b/c your traing him/her. the AI is prity smart, they will flank you suppress you. so overall if you're going into the military as marine or in the army this is a must have game. but if you dont like a challenge i'dd say stay away from this game. its hard.
One of those hardcore shooters
This game was created as an army simulator nothing else it was created for training it is the best army simulator ive played since the first ghost recon i highly recomend it to hardcore army fans not the wimpy call of duty players who spray and pray
True Soldiers, thank God it's wrong...
Well, to start this off the demo is pretty terrible. So if that's all you've played, the game gets worse. The controls are not fine tuned, you either stay still or run. You can't get reliable friendly AI units, all yours do in a firefight on the second wargame is shoot rocks while you get cut down by the two dozen Opfor surrounding you. And even though YOU brave enemy fire to heal your teamates, they leave you out to dry. So most missions you play end in you bleeding out because your team hates you. The brightness level on the game started out so low that you can hardly see what you're supposed to see, the movements tutorial is the second to LAST training mission, so for most of the training you don't know how to move, you don't know how to reload, you don't know how to change your rate of fire, and you don't know how to change weapons. Bsically the only good feature in this game is the grenade arch meter that tells you where your grenade will land.
Gives ya the feel of basic training to a point
As someone that served in the military this game brings back memories of going through basic training. You have to learn how to do most of the same things that you would have to do in basic without all the marching and PT and whatnot. Now mind ya, this is not like most games, it is more to go and give those thinking about joining the Army what they are in for. It is more of a simulation of Army training and not a CoD or Battlefield type game. Now a few things they could have made better such as having the drills yell at you like they do in real life. Also, if you constantly screw up you should have to do some push-ups but besides that, it does give a good feel of what Army basic training is like.
good game with a good amount of fighting. It is a little hard but when you get it's fun. Graphics are not good. If you have xbox live i would buy now because game is fading slow.
Not for the weak
This game is a pure simulated army experience. If your a die hard shooter fan I would suggest this game. No its not like call of duty where you grab a gun pick a perk and shoot. This game takes tactics and true skill, so dont go crying because its no call of duty. THIS IS WAR. the bullets have drop and everything. If you want the true military experience get this game.
I thought it was pretty good
At first, I thought this game might be kinda crappy, but then I got to playing it. There are some parts that are frustrating, but in my opinion, it's a pretty good game. It COULD be a lot better though, I'm not sure if I'd recommend it though. As for teammates responding: they kinda respond, sometimes they disappear and you can't find them and then you have to restart the mission, so yes some parts are frustrating, but overall it's something that I'd play frequently. And I hold games and graphics in a very high standard. I must say, the pictures on some websites make this game look A LOT better then it really is. It has good graphics, aim, so on and so on, but some of the pictures are false. That's propaganda for you. But yes, I'd recommend it.
One word: Terrible!
This game is terrible, I thought that this game was going to be like the original ghost recon games with a US army label on it. I was wrong, I thought that this could be played as a solo game with AI teammates it is not either you play by your self as one person alone fighting the enemy or you can play the missions on line with human team mates. That is not the worst part to me it is the terrible controls of the game it is not easy to do things in here as it is in Ghost Recon or GRAW. Sometimes I feel that my soilder is floating through the air than walking on the ground, also the gun is hard to aim because of the control problems. The only bright spot is that if you are good enough you can earn points to your soilders attribute rating maybe that can help the gun problems that I encountered. The graphics and animation are average nothing special. So don't get this game.
This might be the worst game I have ever played in my life! Even with the pistol you can't control your aim, let alone any other weapon. The slightest of trees and twigs stop you in your tracks leaving you vulnerable to anything that is out there. When I first used the sniper I could barely see the cross hairs. Your team mates? What team mates? When you get shot down don't expect them to come help you, all they do is stand there and shoot at nothing. But I must say they are good at catching bullets. The graphics well I have seen better that's for sure. When the gun fires, it sometimes kicks back at you but when you unleash it has a hard time figuring out when to come back at you. The guns don't even sound real. So all in all do not get this game it is a waste of time, money and actually it just makes you really mad during game play.
