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.

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.

To bad they messed up this game with 2.0 This game was the best FPS back in the day. Any old AA fans miss the good old days like me? Try Arma 3 with King Of The Hill mode, it has some of the feeling AA had back in the day. :)

This game pretty much takes place after meps. Those who do not know what meps is its consider the "Military entrance processing station". The way it works is once you talk to your recruiter you will take a test called the asvab. Once you have passed the asvab you will than go to meps.. After meps you wil than get shipped off to basic training (where the game takes place) The game is literally a blast and its pretty accruate on the test that happens during basic. Found it really cool that you have to pay attention to your teacher in order to get the correct answers on your test. This is what i called a realistic simulation of basic. Online mode is pretty well done and many people still play the game!

Pre-Release Review
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

Early versions of America's Army were great as they stuck strong to realism. Now, though, you'll get a more realistic military experience from the Arma series.

I've played this game for maybe 30-35 total hours. I'm a Vietnam vet, a 2-tour NCO, a wounded -combat- vet, BTDTGTTS, dear reader. I wasn't one of the REMF's. I'm also a man that's spent a lot of hours playing other shooter-type games on the PC, occasionally on consoles. I prefer the PC. I don't enjoy the easiest, or the hardest, setting, prefer the medium-tough degree in single-player. I seriously wanted to enjoy this game, but....
I do not enjoy online play. I've tried it a lot, in numerous other shooter games. While AI can at times be -odd-, in their style, you can at least learn mostly what to expect. I can't say that about online play, I just do not like playing with, or against, other human players. I'd probably have a lot of fun with this game, IF it had a single-player mode. Sure, maybe it's because I'm -old-, I am, but it's a GAME, folks. It's supposed to be fun. I don't want a crowd of children, whose reflexes are twice as fast as mine and have time to do virtually nothing but play games, repeatedly kickin' my ♥♥♥. Sorry, it's simply not my idea of a good time.
If they ever release this game with a single-player mode, with a good story and thoughtfully crafted missions, I'd likely be one of the first to buy it, but as long as I have to compete against children, it's not fun. Hey, if it ain't fun, why do it?
