I've read a few reviews about this and Operation Flashpoint 2 and both look quite good, but at the moment I've leaning towards OF2. Will see how the demo is for this, though.

a couple of guys i game with have got it and they seem impressed so far , im looking for a new online game im getting abit sick of cod waw and want summat to tide me over till modern warfare 2 in november

but it looks like they may have taken "realism" a bit too far , if i have to spend 99% of my time getting into position only to miss everytime i take a shot at the one baddy ive seen in half an hour ill get very bored very quickly :p

I didn't really like the first one. I got to a mission where I had to destroy a bridge, but ended up getting a whole batallion of enemies on me, and gave up.

It seems that now a days we either get a super duper realistic/tactical game or an arcade-ish one that they just tossed the word tactical on it... what happened to a "happy Medium"? :(

Archie, I thought Arma 2 was already out, why launch the game and then throw a demo? I must of have my info all wrong I guess

no asta your right its been out in the UK since last Friday , i have a couple of friends got it from play delivered saturday , they are holding up on their "reviews" till its sorted properly , one of them running a GTX295 is having problems with slowdowns!! ha ha thats why im hanging on a bit

it is odd that the demo isnt released yet , maybe their waiting to patch the demo ha ha , if it runs like a dog on our mid range rigs then they are gonna loose alot of sales , i guess thay maybe thought they could sell a couple of million copies to the likes of me before we realise it wont run properly ;)

The dev house and publisher for ArmA is not related to Ubisoft, right? ;) :D
