About This Game

Arma Tactics is a turn-based close-combat strategy game, where you take control of a four-member Special Forces team. There are no given strategies, rails to move on, or paths to follow; it‘s up to you to decide how you will play through both the story-driven missions and generated missions with randomized objectives. Whether using stealth or a more direct approach, you will need to use your strategic thinking and use both basic and advanced weaponry while facing many different opponents - ranging from unorganized local militia to smart and skilled mercenaries.

With highly replayable missions, achievements, weapons to unlock and two single-player campaigns, Arma Tactics offers many hours of intense ever-changing action.

It's a shame to see this carry the title of ArmA, but I'm not one for Turn Based Stratedy games, yawn...
Oh and the menu screen used the same lines from Red Alert 1/2 Hell March theme song, nice.

As a mad Fallout Tactics fan I just had to get this. At it's original release it was a little limiting and had a few game breaking bugs which probably leads to it's initial bad wrap. Do not be fooled however, this game has come a long way with updates, and extra campaigns. This is well worth the asking price now if not more so ($8.99 at time of writing). If turn based shooters like Xcom, Jaggard Alliance and Fallout are your thing add this to your library.

This is a surprisingly fun game to play once you learn the controls. The AI is what it is, but for the most part the game is very enjoyable and a bargain for $10 (or less). It is kind of like Full Spectrum Warrior, but has enough of its own personality to make it a worthwhile gaming investment. It is actually quite nice looking in terms of graphics as well, and has one of the best implementations of an in-mission map overlay that I have seen in any video game.

This is an awesome game! BUT DO NOT BUY IT...YET!

If you enjoy games like fallout tactics, you will likely love this.
It is a great game I had hours of real enjoyment.

My pain is that there is a bug mid way in the game, I cant complete it the game.
There seems to be no desire to fix this issue.
Wait for this game to hit a special of under $10 and buy it.
That being said buy it right now at the time of writing this the cost is $8.99 and I think that game even broken is worth it.
I do not feel it is worth $14 in a state where I can not complete the game.

If you could complete the game I would pay over $30 for it.

The game is short, too short. But you can replay it. The AI is not very tough and there are some bugs in this game. At one point the enemy shoots through the floor at you. I Ignored it. There are some annoying bugs, however, I had a great time playing it.

It has a Demo if you want to try it out before you buy it.

The game crashed for me and I had to set the game version to developer mode to get it to work, like setting it to beta mode in the steam profile. No problem.

You should know that this is actually a port of a mobile game. It's simplified, but it still enjoyable enough. No, it's not Jagged Allience, and it's no where near the full Arma games, but it works.

There is a good deal of frustation when it comes to the interface. It's not good about telling you how many AP remain, nor how much you'll spend moving to a given point. More than likely, you'll find yourself moving to places accidentally, ruining whole turns.

Don't buy it at full price, but on sale for a buck or two, it's not bad.

When I booted up Arma:Tactics I saw what I wanted to see out of the whole arma franchise,the franchise was just asking to make it an strategy game.The only thing I would recommend to the creators is to follow the steps of the Wargame series with the graduall expansion of the content,because it does lack some of it.

+Story Line

-No vehicles
-Not as many weapons as you thought

Overall Score: 1/2 -Like I said it does lack some content so it dosn't seem fair to judge it by my professional score system,that's why it's only half of what it could be,"Expansion could make it better...no,they will"

I'm still going to give this game some more chance.. may change to positive review later. But for now, kind of annoyed / bored by it, with less than an hour in. Played the tutorial, which is fine. The voice acting tries a little too hard and is kind of annoying. Would rather there be no story than an annoying one. The camera controls also end up being annoying, when you're dragging your soldier's footpath, the camera doesn't automatically follow toward your destination, so you have to stop, move the camera, then try again.

I gave it another try recently and played the first mission. Turns out, if one of your guys dies, and you don't have anyone to stabilize him, then game over. No permadeath allowed. Pfft. Annoyed.

As a huge fan of turn based strategy game I was very disappointed with this title. The tutorial seemed like it may be a good game, but on the first mission I ran into too many issues to continue playing. Shooting an enemy at point blank range with an M4 did not kill the enemy. Also, cover is always huge in TBS games and both my squad and the enemies were able to shoot through walls. What's the point of using strategy and position if you can just shoot through walls? Waste of time/money.

Always been a fan of tactic based squad games like this.
I picked this up cheap in a sale and I'm pleasantly surprised. I didnt expect much, but this game certainly delivers.
