    one of the most impressive games I've seen in a while, too bad it doesn't really work for most.

    Take the "battle" out of the Battlefield series and the "Simulator" out of the Flight Simulator series and you get ARMA 2 somewhere in between. Taking place in the fictional country if Chernarus ("Bla...

    Arma 2 comes much like Armed Assault, fans stick by it but it's just another "beta" release from BIS

    It's hard to review Arma 2, being such a fan of Operation: Flashpoint I was really looking forward to Armed Assault (1) and once I had a computer that could run the game I really enjoyed the title. ...

    ArmA 2 delivers an exciting venture into war time realism , but sadly is also the Donkey ride to getting to know your PC

    High end PC will deliver to you an awe inspiring fab-tabulous display of war realism and satisfying game play. Although plagued with ERROR messages and bugs this was a huge let down. Out of the box f...

    Parts of the game are still buggy like a summer night in northern sweden - but this is one of those few games that really makes me shudder with pleasure while playing it. That only happens once every ...

    A beautiful tragedy. Worth playing for the multiplayer, but the campaign is an absolute disgrace.

    When I was in grade school, if I only turned in half my work then I only got half a grade. Whether or not I got every problem correct, there were no excuses for not completing the assignment. I keep...

    To put it simply: Arma II is one of the most ambitious, and downright fun games to hit the PC is years!

    After spending a good 20 hours playing this game, I can tell you that this is one of the most action packed games I have ever played. You are a U.S. special operations unit working with Eastern Europ...

    Military simulator for those with patience and interest

    Rated on August 26, 2009 by Pyccak_Kozak

    ArmA 2 is great game, only reason I give 0.5 marks off is because initial game release had too many bugs and poor optimization, as well as the aircraft in the game behave too arcady and unrealisitic. ...

    This game has enormous potential, but was wasted on bugs, sloppy campaign, and a even buggier multiplayer game.

    Rated on August 26, 2009 by Sukhoi33

    Bohemia Interactive sold us a "C" class "Operation Flashpoint" with Arma I. Actually, they didn't heed the warnings. So came Arma II, with a beautiful game engine, with amazing scenes, and lots of fre...
