Arma 2 and it's stand-alone expansion Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead package. * Lifelike combat simulation * Story driven single player * Resource management * RPG elements * Unique AI combat system Built upon over 10 years’ experience, Arma 2 thrusts gamers into the heart of the most realistic military combat simulation ever developed, featuring cutting edge technology, vast, detailed environments and authentically modelled units, weapons and vehicles. Branching, player-driven campaigns offer both solo and cooperative gameplay, accompanied by a huge range of single and multiplayer modes.
This game is great! It is a must have for anyone looking for a fun, challenging, military simulation game.
-Long, challenging campaign with a pretty good story
-Great graphics, even on low end systems
-Fun gameplay mechanics (it's tactical and realistic, what else do you need?)
-the EDITOR! You can create anything your little heart desires (including massive battles with hundreds of soldiers/tanks/jets/etc.)
Cons: (mostly technical)
-A.I. can be pretty bad at times
-Can get laggy even with a good CPU
-Voice acting can be a bit overwhelming
-"Invisible walls"; well, not really invisible. The game is completely open, but at times, you are confined (such as having to stick with a convoy, but the convoy moves so slow).
**********To be completely honest, I would give this game a 9.0, but since I'm a new member, I can only rate it 8 or below. **********
