ARMA: Is it any good?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I tried the demo over a year ago and it was buggy as hell and ran like crap. Did they fix this for the final release? Also is this game still very active online? It looks like a good game in terms of strategies and what not.

I too would like to know. I own it but haven't touched it because of how buggy it was at first.

The game is finally patched and playable with 1.14, most bugs are gone and it runs fine even on 64bit vista now. It has a small online community but you will still be able to find some good coop at anytime with mature players.

The game is great, its the best warfare simulator out there currently. If you are in to that kind of stuff then I strongly recommend it, however a tactical shooter like this isn't for everybody.

I play it off and on. It's a good game, but not one for "amazing super-WOW" graphics lovers. It fits in as more of a military/soldier simulation.

I too play ArmA. My CPU wasnt able to handle the game very well, but it looks like I am one of the few with a Single Core still (thank god that is about to change). I would try a demo before you buy it. Personally I think its a great game, lots of mods if you wanted to. The AI seem to be a little BS sometimes, but most games tend to be like that anyway. Its best if you find friends to play with, its better to play with people. This game isnt run n gun so you have to play tactically. Last time I played there were quite a few online servers, you can usually find some populated clan server with a bunch of guys who like to play together. Definately a good game though.
