Sorry, but this game is proper pants, full of bugs, not to mention the online glitches... have you tried to hit someone from distance. cold based on how much you will use it..
#3
Ok its not for everyone and is extremely difficult compared to most shooters but if you get a good group of people it can be extremely satisfying.

bearing in mind that this is more a "simulation" rather than a game (not a bad thing).

I think it's a good price, for the people voting cold because of it's faults? isn't this forum about price? hence "hotukdeals"

I play this game alot, if it crashes for you then update to latest version, also better running this on a top spec PC, as far as the glitches go they aren't all that bad given the shear size of the game.

If your thinking this is going to be COD then don't buy it as it requires thinking and planning (just like in the real battlefield).

Overall a good price so i'm voting hot!

I am aware of the simulation element of the game, but in comparison, the flashpoint series was much better, more realistic. Its certainly not a COD game, but its not really a great simulation. The latest flashpoint was much better than this (apart from vehicles) and has much better textures, better graphics engine and playability. The online stuff in this is good, but its so hit and miss whether you shoot someone and their neck transforms to a giraffe, or pedestrians who just duck in the middle of the road. Admittedly, I've not updated to the latest version. I gave it the first 3 updates, but that took over 9 months since release...even with those bugs corrected, give it a few months and this will be on steam for a couple of quid...

I had this and was playing the single player and was enjoying it. The n it goes your mission is to find this guy good luck with that. Just wtf? thats all it said, then 30mins later it goes hes on this road move to intercept no map marking no nothing and the map is huge really boiled my p*ss so I sold it. Is a nice looking game and is realistic but almost unplayable.

yup! remember that one... you had to trek to the hills to find him, get there, he's in the town.. get to the town... he's not there... call in air support and the AI always crashed it at some point in that journey. in fact, the AI seemed to always crash the chopper when you request a lift...

i do remember playing this mission online and we saw him, but he was fully loaded with steroids, despite being about 50m in front of us, he belted it across the field at huge speeds so we couldnt find him again...

Honestly i wouldn't get Arma 2, i purchased it and was slightly disappointed but bought the stand-alone DLC "Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead" and was extremely pleased, i have only met 1 or 2 bugs after spending most of my life on it.
