    in my opinion arma 2 is thinking game but if you dont have hd graphics its gonna suck so you gonna want to buy the game instead of getting it free

    So basically most of you guys are hating on this game because the gameplay requires some sort of thought? It is a complex realistic game, not MW2 or BO. That or you are completely ignoring it because of BF3…

    Actually, this game is really bad, its so bad in so many ways.. if you want something like this game, just play Battlefield, its now free too, and the vehicles are so well made, the driving and piloting sensation is perfect.
