I think that this game is awesome alone. It is definitely alot better with DayZ installed. Great Game!!!!
Great simulation game
This is a simulation game, don't listen to people who are saying it is boring (it is suppose to be boring). If you don't have patience, then dont buy this game. Their are alot of good multiplayer gamemodes and a good multiplayer base.
had registration Issues
Game worked fine on the Gamestop Client, but would not register with steam. other than that I think that this game was pretty good if you are looking for a War Simulator game then check these out.
most people buy this game for day z. A very realistic zombie survival game. If they keep adding on it could be one of the best zombie games ever. P.S. Its a MOD
A must for military simulation junkies.
Games such as this one have a very specific audience, but those of us who want a realistic game, this is the best out there. Graphics are amazing, and you never run out of things to do. Online matches can be very entertaining if you manage to find a group that suites your play style. The single player campaigns, in this game and it's expansions, definitely could have been better, but they were well designed and had interesting stories to go with them. Multiplayer is where this game shines the most, though. Endless mods that tweak gameplay, add new maps and features, and spice up multiplayer will keep things interesting for the life of your game. ---- This isn't for the casual gamer, however, if you liked Operation Flashpoint, you'll love Arma 2 that much more. The game will push your PC to the limit, so if you're running a computer that's low tech or not made for gaming, you won't be able to enjoy the game to it's fullest. For those of you who want a realistic combat simulator and enjoy competitive and cooperative online play, Arma 2 is a definite buy.
Too Many Bugs clumsy AI
They have the concept right. This would be an enjoyable game, BUT OMG!!!!!!! The Bugs and the AI are so horrible it takes all the enjoyment out of the game. I must of spent hours banging my head on the wall just to get the thing to work properly, if it even worked at all. I really doubt i will ever buy anymore of their games until they get all the bugs and the AI fixed.. Just a horrible experience for such a great concept.
This game was fun for the first 30 minutes or so then it got very boring and deleted it from my pc not worth it.
OUTSTANDING, and a realistic tactical adventure!!!
In this game players will undertake real millitary actions, such as commanding a squad of fellow troops online or demolishing the enemy on single player. although the graphics are desent, the game took 6 months extra for patching for the game to even be playable for online compasity of 50 or more players. the game is fun and a great time to spend, "a few hours" playing. but the game may be a bit sceatchy when playing, but when you play with friends and enjoy the newest MOD DLC for the game call "DAYZ", you will be blown away with the realisim of what its like to survive a zombie apocalipse!!! multiplayer is probablly the best part of ARMA II, but if your players on your squad that may not take this game seriouslly, it can be a bust. im gonna go out on a limb with all of my fellow fans of this game and saying not callof Duty". that game shows an unrealistic more fast pace gamplay which is nothing near the capabillities of ARMA II. in CoD when your player takes damage you can just run to safty and wait for the red on the screen to disapear, then continue the fight....well thats not the case in this game; becuase ARMA II is a realistic millitary "simulator". when your player takes damage, 1 shot can kill you if you dont recieve medical attendtion, such as a bandage to keep you from bleeding out, yes bleeding out, or a blood transfusion to completelly give your blood back. Although it seems as if your gonna die again and again and again and again...well thats becuase your either terrible at tactics, or your playing Call of Duty. as a player in ARMA II your a worker for a company called AMERICA!!! you are a marine and marines work as a team. if you run in-to an objective guns blazing all alone you will become swiss cheese with all the bullet holes that will be entering and exiting your body. actually you will probably die as a team guns blazing too, well with out a proper plan that is. to survive and win in this game either multiplayer or singleplayer, then you will need a "flexible plan" , one that may change if your first plan fails,and you will need teamwork. part of the fun in this 200 or more square kilometer map, is calling in air support and artillary to help you "overcome'' your enemy. the game is realistic, tactical, and most importantlly fun. i gave this game a 10 out of 10, with a small amount of graphical issues and maybe a bit of annoying players online this is the best and realistic millitary simulator (game) in the world!!!!!
excellent game,very good graphics and sound.
This game is very good if you like military simulation.You can create your own mission in Mission Editor.Mission Editor is also usefull if you want to have some fun.There is also campain(sorry 4 the spelling) the explosions are the coolest thing in my opinion.
