ArmA III

IGN
18 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Arma III’s complexity is a double-edged sword. It takes a long time to comprehend, but once you’re comfortable enough with its mechanics to take advantage of them under pressure, you’re able to engage in a kind of large-scale tactical combat that’s simply not offered elsewhere. Weak sound and a sparsely decorated map are forgivable, making Arma III’s nearly endless content definitely worth experiencing as long as you know there’s a long, dark tunnel to get through before...
  • Pros: Endless content, Epic scale, Unique simulation
  • Cons: Tough to learn, Uncurated

  • Summary: Much like the warfare it simulates, ARMA III is intense, messy, and challenging. The massive sprawl of two fiction Mediterranean islands provides the backdrop to near-future lethal operations that resemble little else in video games. Whereas most modern military games aim for the cinematic bombast of an action film, ARMA seeks inspiration from authentic clashes.
  • Pros: Measured mechanics prioritize strategy over haphazard gunning, Coordinated attacks lead to tense warfare, A vast array of interesting user-created scenarios, Lifelike visuals can inspire awe, You can contribute to battle in all sorts of ways
  • Cons: Somewhat light on developer-provided content, Performance problems, particularly online, Finding a good multiplayer match requires effort and patience

Arma III

Gamereactor
21 September 2013
  • Conclusion: I really enjoyed what Arma II set out to do. It was a complicated, extremely ambitious hardcore game that set out to portray realistic military combat. It had lots of great ideas, but unfortunately it wasn't flawlessly executed. I love it for what it tried to do, but I always longed for a more poslished experience. Bohemia Interactive didn't give up.
  • Pros: Fantastic immersion, Excellent atmosphere, Tremendous mod potential, Strong multiplayer, Impressive graphics and sound, Attention to detail.
  • Cons: Overly steep learning curve, No campaign at launch.

Strap on your hiking boots, it’s gonna be a long walk – Arma III review

GamingTrend
16 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Although I’ve long been a fan of the Operation Flashpoint lineage, which bears a striking resemblance and supplied a lot of the coding talent at work on Arma, I’d never managed to delve into the franchise until now, and reviewing Arma III came to me as a welcome assignment. By the end, to my chagrin, it had overstayed that welcome.
  • Pros: Massive world to explore with lots of potential for long-range engagements, Extremely detailed, lush visual presentation, Hyper-realistic combat will satisfy even the most die-hard sim enthusiasts, Deeply layered co-op possibilities (if you find the right people), Huge variety in terms of gameplay scenarios
  • Cons: Controls feel clunky and, at times, are frustrating, Very steep learning curve, Complex command system that can backfire at inopportune moments, Long periods where you’re just hiking to an objective, Technical issues can result in some severe performance problems

ArmA 3 Review

AusGamers
13 September 2013
  • Conclusion: That's what's beautiful about Arma III. It looks utterly gorgeous, and when it's running well it's fantastic. My computer, with its -- then top of the line -- three year old components, doesn't struggle too much with running the game, but many people will have problems. The AI is abysmal, which is par for the course in Arma, but it means truly great experiences need to come from player interaction.

  • Conclusion: Abgesehen von einigen Kritikpunkten liefert Bohemia mit dem ersten Teil der Kampagne von Arma 3 mit knapp 7-8 Stunden ein solides und spannendes Spielerlebnis ab. Das klingt zuerst vielleicht etwas wenig, jedoch werden wir ja im Laufe des Folgejahres mit zwei weiteren Teilen rechnen dürfen. Und eine Spielzeit von schätzungsweise 21 Stunden für einen Shooter ist schon sehr ordentlich und bei weitem kein Genrestandard.
