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.

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.

Conclusion: Terrible marksmanship and a lack of understanding of the cover concept mean that many firefights turn into intimate encounters in America’s Army: True Soldiers . Not a bad thing, until you realize that the radial menu system for choosing weapons is clunky, and releasing from your own cover spot is a lesson in futility.
