ha, i'm a fan of operation flashpoint, been waiting for this!!! A thinking shooter, and a realtime strategy. Soldier simulation. Love this! So what if it has a few bugs? thats unavoidable for a game of this scope.

This game i think will actually be a jewel on the pc. You dont see many pc exclusives these days.

BTW I used to play America's Army and that kicks this game's ass anytime. So don't come telling me about "You Should go play Arcade games like COD". I know my military simulation and this game real weak point is not the software coding. But it's core design.

Thank you Bohemi for releasing hte demo, I was just about to buy it when I tried the Death Valley campaing. This game is an interface nightmare. The interface works against you instead of working for you, the player. I'd even say that with the AI you placed here, the Interface it's just your worse enemy. You should dedicate yourself to writing work software, not making games.

@ mdt_papa lol go and play some games?? the is waaay more advance then even cod mf2.......its just "too" realistic for some people...which is fair enough......also ever played any of the battlefields?? all have jets ect....ArmA2 infact looks like battlefield2 after its been in a warzone for years and is battleharded;p........i personally love battlefield and cod's online modes......like totally different kinds of fun tbh.........i did download this to see if its worth buying but my pc is not good enough to play this online lagg free:( i seriously think people that even try and compare this too any cod is crazy and has no idea about game genres......Fps mp mode.........Warsim!!!!1 2 very different things......both fun and both look sexy....quit your whining;p

I love this and any other game made by bohemia interactive studios such as operation flashpoint and the first arma...codemasters took the operation flashpoint name and are making OPF DR and now i hate codemasters for abandoning BI like that...but still Bohemia have made arma 2 that i love...i also heard that there is too many oponents in the military area of games so they have started the making of a game called " farma " which is a simulation in which you are a farmer and run a farm....is that crazy or what?

Actually; this is not a game for someone who enjoys "Arcade" style shooters. This is a military "Simulator" where hit detection, vehicle damage along with detailed and structured command control and just about every variable has been taken into account such as weapon ballistics, environmental effect on projectiles etc. To compare it to Call of Duty is not a fair comparison, you should compare this to another game like Operation Flashpoint or another similar simulator. I agree the graphics, voice acting etc are a little weak in some areas but when you consider the amount of data, total control, random environmental effects and all other variables that go into making this game the best military "simulator" on the market, you tend to overlook those short comings. Not to mention, the maps are HUGE not unlike Battlefield 2 in the respect. (BF2 is more an Arcade style shooter.) As another poster said here, that Modern Warfare 2 is more advanced than ArmA 2 I would almost have to disagree there also but it depends on what level of Advanced, he/she is talking about. Advanced in graphics and drop in action perhaps but again, an unfair comparison. Just my take www.7thCavalry.us CPL.SC20

man, i remember arma 1 and the awesome coop evolution mod, that had to be one of the best, clearing out each city on the island, unlocking vehicles and weapons along the way... truly amazing!

I got the demo for this and hated it. The voice commands/acting was TERRIBLE, it was like that south park episode where they killed chef and used rehashed sound clips to make his dialogue. Not to mention they ruined the game with BLUR. You are telling me I can't look at a distance (or even 30ft away) without it being blurry.

Have played FP plus all the add-ons, ARMA and this second version. Good game with the realistic style we expect. So good to be held accountable for our tacticle decisions instead of just racing to the next prepared first aid drop. In reality though this is just a good warm-up to the release of FP2. Thats the one I am waiting for.

Ok first of all, to those who think the game looks or sounds horrible, the engine for the game has been under production for 10 years, it uses some of the most advanced rendering techniques and will probably bring an average computer to its knees. I have an Intel quad core and a 4870x2 and this game still manages to slow my computer down a bit and keep in mind it is quad core enabled. Ive played battles online with plenty of people and AI and its super intense. I've managed to overclock my processor and have almost 1000 AI characters in the game with me (yes 1000) and it is the most intense battle ive ever seen in any game. The game looks amazing, plays like great and has the elements of a great shooter with the tactical prowess of a real time strategy while still keeping the action at full throttle. Seriously a fantastic game. P.S. On a quick side note, I'm not kidding about this games performance, it is a serious system hog, don't even think about playing on a single core or anything less than a 4850 or gtx 200 series card. You might get away with older cards in SLi or Crossfire.

@dato1994 : it's not just the processor, it's the graphics card and the ammount of RAM you have. If you have a decent card like x4850+ or 9800GT+ , I think you'll be fine. BTW, the graphics aren't that impressive to me. With simple mapping used as water with no ray-trace effects, or worse, bad lighting. Don't think this game's worth a try.
