ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead

 

"If you've got a powerful computer...and a lot of time and patience, then Bohemia's ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead will scratch your itch"

Consumer review by: Zillo7 (newegg.com)

Why have I've never heard of this before?

 

I can't stand COD/BF because the maps are always small (and usually symmetrical), and it's not fun when you can shoot a player with a full clip of ammo, then they hide behind a wall for a couple seconds and are at 100% health again. (And the 8-year old...

This game is so much better than any COD/BF/etc. game I've ever played. Everything in it is great, realistic (this is made by the same company that makes Virtual Battlespace for real military training!), and very unforgiving when you make a mistake....

The interface is difficult to learn at first, I think every key on a standard keyboard is used for something ; You'll need a powerful machine to run this game, even with medium graphics settings ; The in-game voices are pretty bad, being that they're...

Realism at it's best, with a few caveats...

 

This is Realism at its best. Disregard the 1 egg ratings, these guys are use to games, not simulations. Anyone can beat a game(s) that allows you to take 50+ hits and then keep healing to 100%. A sim where one well placed shot kills and 2 not so well...

Amazing Graphics ; The new campaign is very well done using lots of VBS2 content ; Bar non the most realistic combat simulation ever, in a line of top sims (Original Op Flashpoint, Arma) ; Same engine as VBS2 used by militaries around the world to...

Lacks some of the features that made Op Flashpoint a masterpiece, especially in the mission/story department. OpFlashpoint Resistance is still king when it comes to the level of immersion ; Too much of a focus on team based missions. The gems of...

Absolute Horrible

 

Can't think of any

Some many voices coming in at one time it is awful. Most of the time you can't even see where the shot came from that got you, then when you can play the sign will pop up and say team mate was killed and then you will have to start over. In real life...

Wow - Amazing!

 

Great game, best i've ever played. Highly Recommended buy!

This is by far the best game I have ever played! I am into realism and this has just blown me away with realism. This is by far the best game I have ever had, im just plain addicted

Not for the impatient people who want to get in and kill right away

Arma 2: Combined Operations PC Game MERIDIAN4

 

Great game overall

controls have higher learning curve

Aug, 2010

Consumer review by: WingmanSR (newegg.com)

The ultimate combat *simulator*

 

The AI in this game is extremely advanced, and as a result is very demanding of your CPU. Each unit reacts independently and without scripts. AI doesn't "see through" foliage and walls, and automatically know where you are. This is a game for people...

This game is unbelievable! This is not a FPS, it's an infantry and combined arms combat *simulator*. A much more capable version called "VBS2" is used by many military organisations around the world. If you're looking for realism, this is it. If you're...

Extremely complex control scheme: though I find this to be a PRO because it increases your capabilities, it comes at the expense of the next con ; Steep learning curve: it will take you a while to learn how to control an AI squad, as the commands are...

Difficult Learning Curve - Overall Great

 

This game is time consuming; it does take a while to drive/fly/walk to any objective. It's supposed to be a simulation, and driving/flying/walking to objectives in the real world is not instantaneous either.

This game is not an arcade shoot'em up like COD or BC2. The controls, like the last reviewer stated, are a bit difficult to master, but if you give it a day of playing you shouldn't have any issue ; I have had the original ARMA2 for quite some time,...

Nothing major, few bugs here and there

great game

 

Though i did not purchase from newegg, the game is a great simulator, notice i mentioned sim. If your looking for a more shoot em up COD4 or BF BC2 game this is not it. this game may require patient but is prob the closest you can get in a game to the...

probably only the mod management and how they work. Some games make mods very easy to install and use and such. ARMAII takes on an older style take these files and put them hear and then change this to that, if your not familiar with this kinda of...

dont buy

 

its like this "go (pause) plant (pause) the (pause) bomb" and each word is in a different tone and sounds less realistic than tornado warnings on tv. overall DONT BUY THIS GAME or you'll turn out like me; mad and putting a game on craigslist.

graphics are good ; story is pretty good (what i got into)

i dont know where to start, i bought this game because i read good reviews about it. But i was extremely misled ; Im just going to list everything i dont like ; controls make no sense ; normal pc fps games are simple, like shift for run ; and space to...
