    Controls are garbage and the game is nearly unplayable.

    Rated on July 22, 2012 by Megotaku77

    I originally purchased this game for the Day Z mod I had heard good things about. I kept hearing about how ArmA 2 was a realistic shooter and I have to say this is the least realistic shooter of th...

    Arma II: Operation Arrowhead

    Rated on May 07, 2013 by psycohideo

    When I think of my childhood experiences with gaming, I remember wondering why there were no real Military simulations available for my trusty Sega CD. Little did I know, I would have to wait 20 years...

    FANTASTIC expansion, must have for anyone who likes combat simulators! *Not a run-n-gun game!*

    Rated on July 01, 2010 by MoreThot

    Expansion is great, you play every aspect of a war, from infantry, to armed convoy commander, to pilot. Its a great simulator with all sorts of PoV's in the combat. I really don't know where to start....

    Great addition to the franchise.

    Rated on July 03, 2010 by PeterDuck

    What can I say This game is much much better optimized than Arma 2 or even Arma 1 for the matter. With my powerful rig, i7 930 - 3.5 Ghz 4 GB DDR 3 - 2000 Mhz GTX 480 ; I was still only able to...

    WAR Sim, nothing else comes close

    A very immersive military simulator for the gamer with patience

    Rated on July 22, 2010 by 3dfreak2000

    I been following the game ARMA since the beginning, and I think that Bohemia Interactive still have the Legacy of Operation Flashpoint. This Company created serious Military Sims for several Armed ...
