Excerpt: America's Army , which was released as a recruiting tool by the United States Army, was a surprise success. Not only was it a fun multiplayer game, but the price was right - free. However, the same can't be said about America's Army: True Soldiers , the franchise's first 360 release. True Soldiers ' presentation is mixed.
Conclusion: Can be found cheap for $20 at GameStop or Game Crazy. I rate this game as a 4/5. If you want a realistic shooter, pick this up, if you like aradey COD 4 stylish games, and dont like anything harder than that, stay away from AATS as if it were the Plague EDIT: If you are gonna leave me a negative feedback, at least tell me why
Excerpt: When I think of soldiers in war time I get all of these images of big vehicles rolling all over the place, gunfire from all directions, explosions… ya know, the works. Generally speaking this is how Hollywood and videogames have portrayed warfare, even the more realistic ones. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but this is what I was expecting of a game that talks about showing you what the real Army soldiers fight like.
Excerpt: Video games allow us to experience things that we may never experience in our lives. They put us in the cockpit of the world's fastest planes. They let us go on the field and play professional sports. And yes, video games also put us on the front lines. From the beaches of Normandy to a modern conflict in the Middle-East, military first-person shooters allow us to, in part, live the lives our soldiers live.
Conclusion: It's a terrible shame when you have a game that's suppose to represent the actions and training of the United States army and its one of the worst FPS experiences you will come across on the Xbox 360. This game could have easily been a success story if the government allowed Ubisoft to strip down one of their Rainbow Six titles and ad some military elements to make the experience more enjoyable.
Conclusion: America's Army: True Soldierss is more of a recruiting tool than an actual game. It fails miserably to entertain most gamers, as many will be bored by the slow plodding gameplay, put off by the imprecise controls, or simply revolted by the bombarding of military rhetoric. I doubt that the game will even succeed in its secondary goal of provoking interest in the military.
