I definetely recommend this game. Countless hours of fun! The graphics might be outdated, but the gameplay. Oh, the gameplay! I found 2 friends, and we might form a squadron! If you want a good military game, choose this game!

Arma is the true sequel to Operation Flashpoint and, seven years after its release, I still rate it as one of my all time favourite PC games. The gameplay feels a little clunky compared to subsequent Arma titles but for an old game Arma offers an impressive freedom of movement and immersion. It also has a relatively easy mission editor and I've spent many hours playing Arma online.

great great great game, tons of fun with this game. for being 6 years old this game is still awsome. the best part is making your own combat situations. though there is one draw back to this game, when i first downloaded it, there was a problem with the sound. though with a little research online it was an easy fix. i would recomend this game to any one that wants a strategy game mixed with a first person shooter.
