Arma 2 Free What?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I downloaded Arma 2 now that it is free. But I am wondering what about it was free. There was next to no content besides a boot camp which is terrible and some benchmarks. Nothing listed under multiplayer. No Campaign.

There was only one thing on there that I would consider worth playing but...my whole squad gets mowed down in the first 2 minutes after leaving the UH-1.
If I get injured none of the AI that is supposed to be in my army comes to help me so I bleed out and die without a chance to even play the only content on the game.

Am I missing something here or is that all this game is? I thought this was supposed to be a awesome game/sim for people who like realistic warfare.

Ok so they let you download the tools to make your own stuff, but leave out the paid for content like campaign ect...?

There should be a campaign. But i don't know what you downloaded.
I have the full retail.

That site is powered by it's community not the DEV


You can also D/L and install campaigns too. Thousands
kits
helis
jets
armor "tanks"

I downloaded ARMA II Free but the only content it had was 1 singler player scenario and multiplayer (with no servers). Also the editor mode.

What would you recomend downloading for a good singleplayer campaign? I see quite a few on the website but if you have over 20GB I would think you know the best ones.

get the full game. get the operation arrowhead expansion and get the british armed forces dlc and then download desura and install project reality which is free. at the end of the day you will have the best military fps in the world.

Well from what I have seen this game is terrible. The only singleplayer I have gotten to play was a huge turnoff. My squad was instant dead within 2 minutes leaving me to fight a LAV with a LMG. Not so sure if I would even pay $1 for it after that. My team (the AI) wouldent even revive me. They just sat there letting me bleed out.

This is more of a simulation than "game." Its no COD where you can run through 1000 bullets and still smile. Only takes one good placed shot and your dead. Its a very time consuming simulation.

Pr is multiplayer only. Look up project reality for arma 2. In my opinion is the best team based fps. It is simulation.
