No Servers
N64 Graphics
I'd radther put baking soda on my eyes and then vineger so i dont have to see these graphics again.
Then i would put toothpicks in between every toe nail and proceed to kick a wall.
Then jump in a pile of cactus in just my underwear.
After i have needles all over my body i would cover myself in gasoline and let the cuts in my body hurt.
Then I would light myself on fire and try to stop the fire by rolling on the ground (with the needles still in my body).
After all of that is over... drink bleach.

I had my most epic game moment ever playing this game. The map was snow canyon and after several rounds I was finally able to cycle into the sniper position. 18v18 game. I find a nice place to go prone in the foiliage by a log and survey the battle to the best of my ability. I'm way too far away and its hard to get a clear shot, I'm feeling more and more useless as time goes on because I cannot see anybody. Before long, I check the team status and discover I am the only guy left alive on my side whereas almost the entire enemy team is alive.

Right about then, I'm getting general chat messages thrown at me like grenades:
"KILL YOURSELF"
"STUPID SNIPER"
"THIS WILL TAKE FOREVER"
"HE IS ON TOP OF THE CANYON, KILL HIM"

I do my best to ignore them, my heart starts pumping. Then I see an enemy.

Just like they tought me in the in-game sniper training, I found a target across the canyon running parallel to me. I fired and he went down.

"NICE SHOT!"
"HAHAHA"
"♥♥♥♥! HE GOT ME!"

Then I see another. Bang, dead. My heart is pounding with excitment. I reel around to the bottom of the canyon where it looks like someone is shooting at me. I have the superior advantage. Bang, dead.

Bang, dead.

Bang, dead.

The chat is going absolutely crazy.

I don't know how I did it, but I managed to take out the entire team single handedly in one of the more realistic sniper sims.

Log onto another server and promptly get owned, and conistently get owned from that point on. I don't care, this epic moment keeps me warm.

Awesome game even though its a propogandic as all hell 15/10

This was an amazing game. It got me hooked in the realistic war sim genre and I met some of the nicest gamers in this game. The community was amazing, the game was tense, and my adrenaline would flow when I was being shot at while giving medical treatment to my buddy. Most notable was that this game gave you all the content right away for free. The game serves as a wonderful promotional tool for the Army in a fun format. Also the game featured the most realistic training in any game ever. Most servers required you to complete this training as well. It gave me a look into how the Army works. Over all this game is by far 10/10 would shoot my drill seargent again, but then...

PUNKBUSTER SCREWED US ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

THIS GAME IS NOW UNPLAYABLE BECAUSE PUNKBUSTER DOESN'T WORK RIGHT AND MOST SERVERS HAVE UNFORTUNATELY SHUT DOWN OR BEEN ABANDONED BECAUSE NO ONE CAN PLAY

RIP AA3

Although this game has been abandoned, it was still one of the best FPS games out there. Not only was it free, but it offered a completely different kind of tactical gameplay not found other shooters. The entire games foundation was based on teamwork and communication and required you to think before you pulled your trigger.

It is still playable but you'll find that the amount of servers to play on small... and the amount of players even fewer.

By no means is this "the best FPS ever", but you will be hard pressed to find a more realistic shooter. The physics are realistic, weapons are not one-shot death-lasers, and if you want any medical attention you will need to emphasize teamwork. But probably the best thing about the game is the oddly mature community! I can't remember ever being trolled or cussed out...Call of Duty kids must not know this game exists.
