what does everyone think of ARMA II, think i should get it, is it better that BFBC2, anyone on here play it with mics, I dont wanna play on my own as this will ruin the online experience but all my friends only play games like LoL an WoW which IMO are boring

BFBC2 is great, but it has a bit of a learning curve if your used to playing CoD. For example, you have to adjust your aim/elevation if you are sniping from a distance or particular elevation. And you will most likely get eaten alive for a while when you are first starting out (my buddy who is absolutely nasty at Black OPs, usually going 30/4, got REEMED his first week playing when I loaned him my copy to try). But overall it is a lot of fun. The graphics are slightly outdated by todays standards it seems, but it is still a very good looking game. I was able to max out the graphics with 2x 5770 in CrossFire no problem, so its not too demanding. Also, the Vietnam expansion that came out for it is pretty fun (I think you can get the bundle for like $25 on Steam, so I reccomend that). Its slightly more run and gun in comparison to regular BFBC2, which is more sniper friendly. In terms of Shogun 2, I've only had a chance to play it for a couple hours, barely, mostly doing the tutorial and a little bit of the campaign. Seems like a lot of fun, but I am more of a Starcraft 2 person. I want to play it some more, but simply haven't had the time. Wish I had been patient and waited for the price to go down a little bit.

okay cool, are the weapons + maps worth me spending an extra £10 ($14) on?

I have it and think its has 4-5 maps, same clasess, mostly different weapons, like flamethrower.

The only weapons that seem exactly the same are the M1911, RPG-7 minus the optics, the tommy gun, M60, full auto M16, thats about it
