Epic Game, Unrivalled scale.

  • Conclusion: This game is quite frankly incredible. Upon first playing it it was awkward, harsh glitchy and extremely difficult.

First class in every aspect

  • Conclusion: This game superseeds any other on the market for probably one major reason. It's more than a "game". ArmA will give you a very realistic taste of everything you'd look for in any other game. Fast paced air combat, slow and tactical night time raids on foot and sheer destruction in the form of an armoured assault across the plains of Sahrani.

Not my kind of game

  • Conclusion: Ok, so I cannot bash a game because it's not the type of game I was expecting; that is perfectly true. On the other hand, I really feel it leaves much to be desired. First of all, let's clarify that this is not a first person shooter, but rather a war simulator. I didn't get far in the game. I tried to like it for what it is, but I simply couldn't. It looked buggy and unrefined, albeit quite expansive. It was very difficult, as I learned in the first few missions.

  • Conclusion: Before I start I must say the graphics when on very high are amazing... however the game play is awful, online is awful I couldn't join a single game for 30 minutes, the A.i when I played was awful 2 of my team where in each other for the whole level! Unless you are intending to play this game for a long time I wouldn't recommend getting it.

Good but not fantastic

  • Conclusion: Extremely realistic which in turns causes it to be extremely difficult. Not as good as flashpoint but if you're looking for a realistic shooter this is good, not too expensive either here on play so if you decided it's not your cup of tea you're not out of pocket too much.

As Real as it gets

  • Conclusion: Firstly if you want to get the most out of this game, play on line, in one of the co-op servers. Nothing beats getting pinned down by a T72 and sending out a call for help and seeing team mates race to your rescue. Be under no illusion this is a difficult game, you will get killed a lot at the start, your have to move with care, running around means a re spawn for definite.

Good, but not great

Osnatho, Play.com

  • Conclusion: I really want to give this game 3 and a half stars, as i feels it better than 6/10 but not quite that 8/10. Arma is without a dobut one of the most realistic games ive ever played, which is both good and bad. firstly its good for a number of reasons. The realistic damage is a good plus, nothing more i hate than online games where your oppnent can lace you with M16 mag, but not kill you, then you turn round and return fire and repeat step one and still not kill the bugger...

  • Conclusion: Make no mistake this is hardcore difficult. It is very realistic in every respect you might as well be at war. Graphics are great cannot comment beyond the first level because i have not managed to pass it yet. You try it man!!!!!!
