    Great addition to the franchise.

    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 get 20-25 FPS playi... Read Full Review

    Controls are garbage and the game is nearly unplayable.

    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 this generation. ... Read Full Review

    Arma II: Operation Arrowhead

    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 for a game to reall... Read Full Review

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

    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... Graphics, amazing... Read Full Review

    If you like simulations, this is one of the best.

    The thing about simulator games is that they are realistic, complicated, and take you a lot of time to learn; it is why many don't like it. However, if you are one of the few simulator fans who are willing to spend the t... Read Full Review

    WAR Sim, nothing else comes close

    The Good: Feels like ARMA II with lots of addons already installed. In Multi Player you and your mates can split a heavy weapon into cmponents and carry them in your burgan then reassemble it at another location. Has ... Read Full Review

    A very immersive military simulator for the gamer with patience

    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 Forces through the W... Read Full Review
