Horrible horrible game. Probably THE worst game I've ever played in the past 10 years, and definitely THE worst I've ever bought.

Seriously, even if this were a fiver on the consoles, I would still avoid it. Controls are a total non starter, single player is dire, online is like a ghost town.

Ps3 and 360 already posted here.

May want to change title to the PC version only.

I really enjoyed this, I tried to enjoy ARMAII but found it lacking atmosphere, and I got bored with the run'n'gun corridor shooters like Modern Warfare.

This game is very realistic, squad tactics have to be properly planned and executed.

Sure it's hard, and the controls are not as intuitive but for £5 (PC) any tactical shooter fans will get many hours of enjoyment.

Not good, even at this price. Unlike OFP, ARMA or ARMA2, the island is not continuous, each mission is set within a restricted area, the AI is a bit weak, the game mechanics are not realistic, more Ghost Recon 2/CoD, your team is limited to 4 (including yourself) and the orders system is useless and highly unintuitive. If you want a more flowing less realistic shooter get CoD, if you want realism, modability, map editing and a challenge get ARMA 2.

What a bunch of lies, you can't explore it all, as you hit invisible boundries during the campaign missions; real time day/night cycle, no way of knowing as missions are set in one or the other, and due to constant timers which end the mission, you can't stay in mission long enough to see it change; by 'streaming technology' they mean load on demand, view range is irrelevent as most missions take place in areas no bigger than a few square km, as for seeing flashpoints as you fly over the island, as far as I can see you can't fly any aircraft/helos, or for that matter drive anything other than the odd jeep. Truelly all this game had was some pretty graphics (if you have the monster PC spec to run it), in every other way it was a step back from OFP.

Isn't worth 5p never mind £5, the game is not a sandbox game it's all planned and laid out. Enemies have preplanned moves and spawn points, it's not freeroam at all it's map based.
Rubbish don't waste your money.

Didnt you rate it then ?

I could only play 10 minutes into the demo without getting stuck :S
#13
I think this got rushed out because there literally no aircraft or tank sections in the entire single player campaign. If only Codemasters had continued to collaborate with Bohemia then we could have had the best of both worlds instead of two games that both have something lacking.

I totally agree. I had such high hopes of this game but they completely managed to screw it up. I would not even give this game 1/10.
#15
I think it's a pretty decent game. Although it did seem like it was rushed out a little. Does need a bit more polish, but it's well worth a fiver.
#16
Easily worth a fiver.

Did you actually play this game? the whole island you're on in the first mission is freeplay, do what you want, go where you want, you even get to fly the helicopter, granted it isn't a patch on Arma2 but for £5 you can't go wrong.
#18
That isn't the main island, just a small one off its coast. That helicopter was the only one you got to fly in the whole game from what I could tell. They just didn't have time to implement any vehicle sections and focused on infantry combat. The presentation is slick and the infantry stuff is fun, if you like FPS and can forget how good OP1 was and think of it as a different game then you can still get some enjoyment out of it. I managed to play through to the end so I dont think it was terrible.
#19
I completed the game, honestly it was ok as an arcady shooter, there is next to no realism and most atmosphere was killed by you being forced to run in guns blazing otherwise the various timers would fail the mission, so any tactical play was impossible. It further annoys me that they make all these claims about sandbox environments, one big open map, lots of vehicles, etc when they are either lies or extreme evading of the truth, yes it is only a fiver, but I would say you are better off putting that fiver towards a decent game, not this half done mish-mash, the game is all style over substance, as I said before, if you like the CoD games rather than a realistic soldier sim, this may appeal, but TBH it is more likely to frustrate such a player with it's shortcomings.
