Welcome to Project Reality: ARMA 2 (aka PR:ARMA2), a free to download game modification for the ARMA 2 retail Windows PC game. The main aim for PR:ARMA2 is to create a realistic and immersive modification for ARMA 2, which focuses on encouraging teamwork through game play. As with Project Reality's original conception on the Refractor 2 engine, at this stage PR:ARMA2 should be classed as a Mini-Mod; we have to start somewhere! Do not be fooled though, this release will by no means disappoint, due to the large number of high quality art assets already created by the Project Reality Team, and the considerable experience of the PR:ARMA2 Development Team on the Real Virtuality 3 engine!
I Like the implemation of a 3D Mission editor.
That's about it actually...
I respect the Dev's desire to make a new UI and all, but it's not smooth. I know this is a beta but after seeing this I will not be downloading any future PR Releases for A2.
The fact that it runs off it's own EXE and not by the tried and true modfolder method is frustrating and useless.
It looks like they tried to copy over all the features from the BF2 PR onto this one, which is to say a bad idea. like the PR Ammo crates. There are some things in the arma 2 game that are fine the way they are, and long time players of the game will get frustrated when having to grab weapons a different way. etc
The only reason I was interested in PR was because the mostly British Dev team was obviously going to make the UK faction overpowerd and stacked like they Did for BF2 PR, and it looked like they were going to add a variety of newer units and vehicles in contrast to the BAF DLC. To be honest from what I've seen the DLC Is better, and everything PR Is trying to do, ACE2 Has already perfected and done better
