Arma 2

110 posts in this topic

The AI isn't smart or impressive, the radio commands are annoying as fuck, and the game isn't fun. It's a boring simulator.

So same as the first arma?

Oh you just wait for them zombie mods. :D

It was quite impressive since you now can drag or carry the wounded to safety before you heal them, and you don't even have to be a stupid medic!

I've watched a couple of vids of...it looks mildly impressive and sound impressive but the actual gunplay and controls look shit.

Cool story Sky Chief.

Oh I forgot I must pay £40 for a game then complete every single aspect of it before I'm allowed to make a statement or to put forward my opinion.

Regardless the gun flash looked like someone had glued the same orange flower to every machine gun.

If a game doesn't look good (not aesthetically but gameplay wise) then I usually don't bother with it...so if it fails to excite me with the actual FUCKING GUNPLAY then it is just an overblown war sim.

I Apologise for going off on one but the key element to it (in my eyes) looks plain and dull.

I know the video you watched. Watch other ones. That one had custom POS gunflashes and the guy was a tool. 90% of videos of Arma 2 are people running around not playing, just watching shit they made happen in the mission creator.

I've watched one or two and it still looks pretty much the same...but it is hard to find an actual gunplay video. TBQH I can't tell the difference between this and Flashpoint 2...Are they like on a twin release thing or something.

Anywho I bet that Flashpoint will do better just because it's multi-platform. Let the retards with microphones festival begin.

I am really confused as to why they made it multiplatform. This type of game by nature scares off most potential players. The only way I see this working is that they consolize the shit out of it.

Lolwhut.

Wrong, right, wrong.

The AI is fucking unbelivable. I just watched a Russian motor rifle division (If you don't know what that is...) clear out Chernogorsk. It was great. The air support acted like air support, the tanks supported the infantry, soldiers covered each other whilst they were moving across streets, etc. The radio commands ARE bad, but goddamn, they were in ARMA too, and I must say I've grown fond of it. Also, it is in no way boring. It's some of the most fun I've ever had with a game.

I've watched a couple of vids of...it looks mildly impressive and sound impressive but the actual gunplay and controls look shit.

Gunplay isn't shit, sounds just suck. The controls might take some getting used to, but if you're used to games which require a larger-than-average number of controlls, you'll be fine. If you've played flight simulators, it will be a walk in the park.

Coop campaign, while buggy, blew me away. Gun sounds are excellent. Working as a team to complete objectives and investigate the world is a blast. It's a good time.

Or you could just play the demo instead of making an asshole of yourself. Oh and a nice surprise the gunplay in this version is so much better than the last its not even on the same level here. Game still has more bugs than the planet of Klendathu but its Bohemia and it just comes with the territory. Running around with Stabbity, Kent Karma, and Flea last night and into this morning was some of the most fun I have ever had despite the pyramid of bugs. If you are uncertain of this game id wait for a few more patches in all honesty before checking it out.

Merf. Today, we will beat that fucking mission. What an awesome game.

Yeah. We would have it dominated by now if saves always corrupted for some reason in co-op. Re spawns would also fix this. Whatever comes first I suppose.

How is saying that I don't like the way the guns looks making an asshole of myself.

I couldn't be arsed getting the demo but my boyfriend had it so I played it for a bit this morning.

The guns are shit!

The world looks very pretty and during heavy firefights it sounds like the God of Thunder gargling with nails...but by lordy it doesn't half love glitching.

Thought it might have been his computer...nope.

It is only a demo after all but if it glitches that fucking badly in the main game then I still won't bother.

At one point I fired at a distant speck I thought was an enemy...time stopped for a second then there was an explosion and I ended up 20 feet away behind a wall. Unharmed.

I have just under minimum requirements.

This would never be a problem because I'm always able to mod the game into being an FPS whoring motherfucker. This game however lags on the menus without any rendering going on.

The game is not optimized, it is shit in that respect. Another thing that pisses me off is the fact that the graphics on low look like the worst graphics I've ever seen in my entire life and it is still unplayable. I suppose I'm not allowed to complain since I am a cheap bitch and don't have money to throw away on ZOMG hardware.

Realism games don't have much longevity unless you're a super hardcore gamer anyway. Would have been the same crap as Red Orchestra most likely. Amazing immersion and realism, but the most frustrating game experience ever.

I totally agree

Any game that sacrifices realism for fun can go fuck itself in its grey dingy arse

I went back to the thread we made at the arma forums. I found one other person complaining about the same thing so at least we know its not us for sure now.

I'll be in vent at some point to help try again.

RAZOR 3, OUT

Edit: Shicken, seriously I don't know what problems you've had with the game cause we've played flawlessly dispite some save-load errors with maximum fun. MAXIMUM. and Xendrid, no its not ok to complain if your computer is shit.

Id tell you to go buy a gun and kill yourself but apparently you could not afford the gun let alone the rounds.

Agreed. I listened to all the people saying ARMA II RAWKS play the game yesterday. They all just sounded annoyed, frustrated and unhappy.

I watched a wall fall on top of a guy in multiplayer, squishing him.

Thats when I fell in love.

No, the gun sounds really suck. I love the game, I think it's a masterpiece, but the gun sounds blow. Especially for the silenced weapons.

Yes, it's buggy. All games are buggy, and it certainly had a much better launch then some recent games. It's excellent, the gun play is fun, and no, it doesn't glitch that badly. Only glitch I've encountered so far is that AI sometimes walk through walls.

What did you just say about Red Orchestra.

What.

Yeah, the game isn't optimized well, but it's much better than ARMA I in that respect. Get a better computer. The game has infinite longivety, due to the modding possibilities, the editor, and what can be done with MP.

Believe it or not I'm an FPS whore. I can't play a game until I have it where it nearly never lags. I'm no game dev, but any smart one would know that you can make a game that looks amazing and still run on a lower end rig. If I could have around 18 FPS on the lowest quality I would be fine with that, but it looks AWFUL and it runs at 2-6 FPS.

That is fuckin' sad hahaha.

Don't bullshit. I've seen, and heard, plenty of people having the time of their (gaming) life in ARMA II multi-player. I have had much fun in single player.
