It's one of them titles you would assume because it's free it's gonna be crappy, buggy and have the lifespan of 3 mins of your time... but that really couldn't be more wrong, it's actually a really good, well developed game. There's a bit of military propaganda thrown in, which is basically to be expected since the US Army use this as a way to advertise their military and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. In AAPG you get to use official military issue weaponry like the M4A1, M16, Combat Shotgun and M24 Sniper rifle to name a few, there are no over the top killstreak perks like Call of Duty, no respawns.. so it really gives you a massive sense of needing to work as a team to accomplish the mission, that's further aided by the built in VOIP system. Don't listen to all the people saying "its nothing like past titles in the series such as AA2, or AA3" as I don't think it's supposed to be anything like them so don't let them pre-judgements persuade you from at least trying the game..

    All in all, for a completely free, Beta game that's getting better and better over time... It's worth a try, what do you have to lose? I have paid for games far... far worse than this title. Get ya game face on and get in the game!

    A great game, with a few bugs, considering I write this review during the beta it means it is already better then most online shooters.

    A revive & secure mechanism makes teamplay a must, because teamplay is important joining a clan is also highly recommended.

    After playing AA2 a lot and disliking AA3, proving grounds is by far the best shooter currently available.

    Solid gameplay reminiscent of the better AA titles of yore (none of the in-game quicktime event nonsense of AA3), tactical movement as perSolid gameplay reminiscent of the better AA titles of yore (none of the in-game quicktime event nonsense of AA3), tactical movement as per previous titles (leaning, breathing control, revive/secure mechanics), and a highly responsive developer team show that the AA series is still alive and kicking.

    The upcoming release of a map editor for community use and additional game modes will help to fill in a major gap: lack of game mode & map variety.

    So it is a shooter. It's called America's Army, and you always play as the Americans. In many respects those are the only things thatSo it is a shooter. It's called America's Army, and you always play as the Americans. In many respects those are the only things that veterans of the AA-AA3 will find solace in. Apart from that this game seems very much a rehashed shooter. however it is well made. The sound is excellent. Once again you can hear the enemies if they are happy to run around making noise giving you cues to where they lurk. The gun shouts are loud and powerful sounding and very quick to make you jump. The visuals are excellent as well, smoke completely blinds you as it seeps around the corners giving you cover.
    when you begin playing expect to die a lot, and quickly. Become frustrated that you must wait until the end of the round. Learn from your mistake.

    Why is this an AA game? Because it still calls on the player to use military foundations to win. #1 is teamwork. People must realize this is the reason for online games. Play with your team, not for yourself.

    #2- communication. If you don't communicate with your team, you will fail. The community is happy to help you out when you let them know the situation.

    #3-tactical superiority. suppression fire. holding chokepoints. and forcing the enemy to play your style to complete the missions.

    If you don't want to play an FPS that is heavily reliant on these three key features. go play COD for 6 weeks until the next COD comes out for 60 bucks plus DLC every two days.

    This game will make you jump. It only took a minute or two into my first round to remember just how well this franchise can raise your heart level and really make you consider survivability primarily above destroying the nearest enemy. In that feeling comes the desire to consider options and do the most strategically sound attack so that you can finish the round alive standing heroically over the vanquished enemies.

    THe reason this game is getting a seven? many features could be implemented, and may still be since as of writing it is still in beta. Rank progression would be a nice feature opposed to an arbitrary number. Enemies dropping foreign weapons such as AK's would be nice. forced basic training and spec ops training would be nice. more or less some of the features AA had many years ago that in my mind re-imagined how an FPS could be molded. Overall, best quality online FPS you will ever find for the price. and in excellent shape for a beta staged game.

    Simplified- AA has died! Hooah, hooah, hooah!

    I downloaded and installed this game's Beta hoping for the past tactical Rogue-spearlike gameplay that I spent hours on a good few years back. Instead, we're given simplified controls that seem to be clearly made for the console, arcade-like points that pop up as you do things, and an all around complete lack of that tactical feel that seemed essential to the AA I know. I could go on, but I think most gamers by now know what I'm talking about:

    If you're into the cookie-cutter Call of Duty experience, then this may be right for you. Alas I was looking forward to the old experience that I cherished and loved with AA2 and this simply doesn't provide that. Big disappointment. Hopefully things change as the beta progresses.

    A saddening 2 out of 10 for this sick and tired gamer.

    This isn't AA anymore. In the old AA, yes, you bled after being shot. You needed a medic to help you. In AAPG, you can wrap your own wound inThis isn't AA anymore. In the old AA, yes, you bled after being shot. You needed a medic to help you. In AAPG, you can wrap your own wound in bandages.

    In the old AA, you were dead for good once you went down. In AAPG, you can be revived one time. Unless an enemy secures you with plastic zipcuffs. Yes, you can revive someone when they're full of bullet holes using cotton bandages UNLESS OF COURSE their hands are cuffed. Then they're just plain dead.

    Grenades from nowhere, knowing a map means everything....machine guns are virtually worthless.

    Save your time and play COD, BF3/4 of CS -whichever suits your FPS fancy. If you want ultra-realism, get ARMA and don't give these guys any more users. Let's remove their funding.
