Yes.
A thousand times yes.

If anything, this game healed me of my CoD cancer.

And I played it a long time ago.

Please, if you can, take this game, revive it, it's a great game which focuses on Teamwork above all.
It focuses on communications, brains, not brawn, and most of all, tactics.

Who enters first, who breaches, who is taking point.

Who is covering, it can all be arranged, and agreed upon, and it's amazing.

It doesn't matter wether you're good at shooting, or bad at shooting, you could engage as support, surpressing your enemies.

Guns? Who the ♥♥♥♥ needs more guns when tactics like this get to be used?
[Although, I would prefer if a bigger gun variety was added]

This game is, in my opinion, 10/10.

Will pick it up again. TODAY!

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.

Too bad they aimed for a COD-like game instead of keeping the original charm from 1.x 2.x. Ahh i miss good old days of AA, when it was a slow tactical gameplay. :(

Fell back in love with FPS gaming with this one and met many good friends over it. Hard to imagine I didn't know what I was doing when I first installed AA3. Most of us moved on to AAPG but this one will always have a fond place in my heart.

Great game overall not as good as AA2 but best on steam in my opinion.
Pros:
Needs Teamwork/Teamplay.
Great revival system.
Good AI.
Well designed maps.
No Punkbuster issues for most people.
F2P Like how it should be.
Not pay to win.
Cons:
Buggy Ingame Menu
Scoreboard out of game and in browser
Server list ingame doesnt work
Nearly dead community only like 300 people playing it
Ugly launcher
Not the best graphics
So thats my review on AA3 Thanks for reading :D

Propaganda/Recruitment tool.
The games basically dead, and, when you did find a server its basically just grenaider heaven.
It's OK but leaning a bit more to the bad side.

Used to play the original when it first came out for years. People who like this game are people who appreciate realism and challenge. This game does have a learning curve. Every piece of equipment has a specific way of handling and if you don't know it, sometimes you won't figure it out. They used to make you take a "class" in each activity and pass a test before you could actually qualify for it in game. Like being a medic, sniper, paratrooper, using the modern Humvee equipment, etc. Tried this version a few years back and kept dying nonstop, might pick it up again at some point. This game was great and a great value.

This game is for players that want maximum realism, strategy and teamplay in combat. In short it's awesome and it's only drawback is that there's not a lot of people playing it these days on steam servers.

Obviously there are games that are graphically more advanced, but pretty graphics are not why this game was made, or why people play AA3.

When I first started playing this game, I was almost shocked how easily I got killed or seriously wounded. Well but this is combat in real war, you can't take 10 bullets and continue to run.

Full of cheats and corrupt admins but has the potential to be a great game.
Alas this will never be realised :(
