    Everything in 2.0 makes America's Army more intense, more gripping, and more deservinig of its status as the top tactical sim. [Mar 2004, p.79]

    To play America's Army is like slipping into a fascinating experiment. As players come and go, you're witness to riveting displays of heroism and cowardice, brilliant tactical bluffs, and awesomely awful blunders.

    If you want to make the most of the game, you’ll have to walk through the entire qualification process. Since it’s governed by actual military rules, you’re looking at a good couple of days from boot camp to field operations.
  5. Good controls with a surprisingly fun training session help make this first person shooter one of the more enjoyably controlled games I've played all year.
  6. Unfortunately, if you've never played it before, it really is a chore to get into because the training can be extremely boring and the setup convoluted. However, as the old saying goes, you can't complain too much about something that's free!

The new AA3 looks really slick, so nice online and very realistic gameplay. cool graphics for such an old game, despite being a free 2 play. The new AA3 looks really slick, so check that out as well. Overall, great game, and plenty of updates and lasting impression, even though there is some US propaganda. Well worth the download. Congrats, US Army! Full Review »

    People who say this game is free are fools. If you have ever payed your taxes you have payed for this game in some way or another. This gamePeople who say this game is free are fools. If you have ever payed your taxes you have payed for this game in some way or another. This game is pure american propaganda. You don't even get to play as the "OpFor" which are basically your typical looking middle eastern person. Arrrgh. Oh well it is pretty fun I guess and pretty realistic, so it's worth downloading, espesially since you are paying for it. Full Review »
