Do you speak of America's Army?
No! I'm Spamacus!

If you are talking about America's Army, it's pretty good. Besides being free it is a lot of fun at first. You won't find as many idiots running around as with a typical shooter. If you do, they usually end up dead after a few minutes.
The only real negative is that after four years of playing, it's lost a bit of variety for me. However, if I remember correctly the last version released in December (I think) had a mission editor included.
Yeah - AA is pretty damn good gameplay wise and graphics wise considering it's not only made by the Army but also b/c it's free no matter what.

That's true too yet instead you find these guys who are AMAZING at the game and if you're not anywhere near their level of play you'll be consistently dominated ALL THE TIME.
That's also another drawback...the level and points system for the game. When you earn a certain amount of points you go up an "honor level". Now, if you really wanna be cool and play as Special Forces and be able to do some other things you need at least level 15...you start at level 10 so you think it's not that hard...yet for your points to count you must play a complete round from start to finish (which could go up to 12 or 14 games each)...now a normal starter may make a grand total of 200-300 points per round, if you're good...and to gain a level you may need something like 2000-3000 points (depending) do the math and see how many games and time you need to put into this game
Simply the trade off for it being fun, free, and good is a lot of frustration...if you're a casual gamer like me who's ok/somewhat good at the online shooters you may not gain levels fast...I've been playing AA on and off since it's been out...and the highest level I ever reached was maybe 13 or 14

I'm somewhere around 50. I stopped keeping track of that long ago.
I might start playing again. It's fully updated, but I stopped playing regularly a long time ago.
I play AA :p
Great game, and it's free! It's probably equally as good as CS:S if you've ever played that?! It's a very realistic army game and yes, there are some amazing players, but don't let them put you off!
Clan matches can be arranged and there are hundreds, if not thousands of clans competing in AA!
You should definitely try the game. It's free - what have you got to lose?
The newest version (2.8) is a rather demanding program - by this I mean it requires a relatively new PC with 1GB RAM, 2.4GHz+ Processor and 128MB graphics memory. Also 2GB Virtual memory helps a little :)
As long as you've got a computer like that it should run smoothly and you should enjoy it. It's a great FPS in my opinion! :beer:
I love AA!
It's unfortunate that I'm stuck with dial up, so at home I can only do Training missions, but when I'm at my friend's house, you better watch out because I'm a damn good sniper.
I like it because it's realistic, and the community is so great!
Sniping is as hard as sniping should be, and all the weapons are tweaked to perfection. Plus the medic system is the best I've ever seen. When you get hit in a non-lethal area (legs, arms, or gut), you get damaged, but you also start to bleed, depending on where, and with what weapon you got hit with, you will have a certain amount of time before you bleed to death. Also, if you are wounded you move much slower.
The community is probably the best part of the game. In every game I've joined the players have always been patient with new players, and never flame each other (exeptions being people accusing me of using an aimbot, lol). The game greatly depends on working together, the enemy is only easily identifiable from a close range, so you have to constantly let your team mates know where you are (you just press "u" and it automatically sends the info to all your teammates).
Enough of this essay, just go and play it.
Yeah, it's a very realistic game considering it's made by departments of the US Army and funded by the US Government :eek:
yeah, it kind of makes you wonder if they are using subliminal messaging in between frames, to make us want to join the army (because of course the game itself provides little or no incentive to join the army).
They say it's to give youg adults a taster of what being in the army is like. Which is why they have parental controls on the game to disallow certain weapons and other features.
I know i've said it's realistic, but I don't thinks it's so real it tells you what being in the army is like - I'm sure you wouldn't start hopping around corners and crouching like mad when you come into contact with someone :uhm: :lol:
