ARMA 2: Free review

My thoughts on Arma2: Free

Sorry for not reviewing anything new, but it'll take some time until there's something worth reviewing (for exmaple Dead Island; A10 Warthog). So for now, I'll just review something older which isn't so well known. Not everyone is aware, that there is a Free Multiplayer Version of Arma 2. First of all that's pretty awesome, but of course there are some disadvantages you should know.
If you don't know Arma2 or Operation Flashpoint or Bohemia Interactive in general, you're most likely female, underage, both or one of those Call of Duty / Battelfield retards who think, that's how real war looks like herp derp - konsols are best! Well Arma 2 is a military-simulator - so not some other FSP. Most likely you'll just die from one shot and you'll probably have no fucking idea were it came from. If you're lucky and survive a hit, you'll probably just bleed and roll around on the ground crying for a medic for the rest of the game.
So the obvious advantage is, it's free! Second, it's pretty fun as a multiplayer game, for example playing a special ops mission with some friends.
But there are some ugly disadvantages. Worst of all, you most likely wont get the graphics and/or performace you'd like to have. My PC is 5 years old, so it's not that surprising for me, but an i7+GTX 560 isn't much of a help either!! + the free version has crappy textures (well it's free).
Secondly, well it's a multiplayer version, so there is only 1 single player mission and 2 benchmarks.

So, that's about it - the mission editor could probably be interesting for you - or at least it's interesting because there are many extra maps/fun maps.


  1. might have to check this out. thanks following and supporting

  2. It does sound interesting, I might take a look at it. I'm a big fan of free things too.

  3. I might have to check it out, it's nice to have an actual military simulator. Still, I'd love to see some of those CoD/BF3 guys join the army and think they can be shot 50 times before they go down.

  4. Sounds awesome, haven't played a realistic game in a while now. Gonna download it if I can, +followed

  5. I think I'll stick with Team Fortress.

  6. Literally bought this on steam a couple days before it went free, not cool!
