    Amazing - yet...dull...

    Rated on September 16, 2010 by dozzpot

    I've marked this one with Gamespot's 'Best in series' tag - although that doesn't say much given the previous ARMA outings. For sure though, this has been better polished, there is more going on, it i...

    There's really no limit to how low the ArmA series can sink...

    Let's just say right off the bat (whatever the heck that means...) that this is considered to be the best title in the ArmA series so far. OK, fair enough... I also happen to agree with it. Compar...

    Good piece of military software for the absolute dedicated military fan.

    Rated on September 21, 2010 by kenpearson

    This isn't really a game, but more like you joined the army. This is what Bohemia Interactive was trying to achieve & IMO, they pulled it off. Thats where the good news ends for those who wanted a fun...

    Hands down the best shooter of its time. Not being biased, just being truthful. For milsim fans and serious gamers only!

    I've been playing Bohemia's games since day 1. From Operation Flashpoint, Armed Assault, to Arma 2 and now Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead. When i first saw OFP i didnt want to play it, it didnt look l...

    Buggy and Unplayable

    Rated on November 27, 2010 by XtrmPete

    I have installed this game 3 times. So far this last is the best installation. The previous tries were met with freeze ups and character facing east and unable to turn around. Could walk backwards to ...

    For those not familiar with the ArmA, let me give you a quick refresh. While these games are technically a FPS, there are as far from Modern Warfare and Medal of Honor games as you can possibly get. T...

    This aint yo momma's cod.

    Rated on April 11, 2012 by Crush_Project

    So first off, if your going to get this game make SURE you get it on steam or one of these companies that does updates for their games automatically. If you'll notice i reviewed arma 2 and it didnt g...

    One of the best FPP games ever. Those who don't like this game don't like the realism this game offers, too bad.

    Rated on February 15, 2011 by corkywhite

    People that like realism will love this game but those who just want to get in a game and shoot everything that moves with little damage to themselves won't want to play and will give a low score. Th...

    Excellent War Sim !

    Rated on March 06, 2011 by muppet531

    I was very reluctant to pick up this game based on some of the negative reviews it received. It sees as though people really love it or hate it. Had I purchased this game at the time of its release,...

    Captures the niche market well, I've never played another game quite like it. But peevish controls and AI let it down.

    Rated on April 25, 2011 by ZiggyStardust66

    I've been looking for this type of game for quite a while. It's nice to play a game where you don't survive after getting shot 10 times and can't just run in guns blazing against overwhelming odds and...
