I really hoped for arma III to be better than this, was so tagged for Dayz in its stand alone version with updated engine but i guess ill buy it anyways, cuz gameplay is everything.
I've never seen a reason to play any ARMA game, because there is just no objectives & lack of balance gameplay. I don't care how awsome it looks, if the physics aren't right, etc.. so the great graphics have no pull on me.
That said^.. I have a boner over this game & will buy it in support of Bohemia, like I have every ARMA game..
But ARMA is more like a Military trainer, than game. I love the openess.. but focused objective (multiple ones @ once) just don't have the feel of a team sport. So when my Titan arives I'll see if they fixed the gameplay.
On-the-other-hand, we won't have a long wait to see what DICE is comming up with in BF4. Which is rumored to be more players (50 vs 50?), bigger maps... realistic universe, w/ compressed combat by focused objectives. I like open maps that allow for more dynamic play (hate metro), but having tons of objectives makes BF more of a meta game, more than what most people understand is going on in Battlefield games. Some only know BC2 ~ BF3 and not understand Commanders, etc.. so they don't understand what is comming with BF4. (+ BattleRecorder ftw...)
