  1. Weapon sounds are so real, you can almsot feel the slight recoil of the M-16A2 rifle or the impact from the M-203 grenade launcher. [Jan 2003, p.106]
  2. For a free game that’s admittedly an interactive recruiting poster, AA is great.
  3. Probably one of the most realistic army simulation/FPS on the market.
  4. Underlying all this, though, is an excellent first person shooter game. Its primacy in tactics, detail and realism should convince at least some people to sign on--even if they're not in America proper.
  5. Two very big things going for it. The first is the Unreal Warfare engine - it provides nice graphics content for every level of system. The second is the price. It's Free. Go download it.
  6. A stripped down bare-bones tactical multiplayer shooter. The simplicity of the title detracts considerably from gameplay, but it still cannot prevent the game from being fun.
  7. If you're a fan of FPS, and you haven't already, give it a try. Just don't start doing pushups in your basement.

    Best shooter game i´ve ever seen. Never seen before a game there you have to take a very real training. Only after pass the test positivie you can start kill other players. But the important thing is the reality on weapons handling in combination of your breath! All i can say is HOOAH. Expand

    This game truly emaphasises the impoprtant qualities of teamwork. It is a good way to pass boring hours. It also probably serves its purpose as a recruitment tool. HOOAH! Expand

    1 player game feels sorta clunky, playing on GameSpy can be temperamental, but it's FREE! If it's free, then why not, right?

    I really enjoy the realistic feel, but it does have some significant glitches that need to be ironed out. Maybe an uninstall program that works would be nice. Right now I've got a bunch of army registry files on my comp that I can't get rid of. Stupid. Expand

    I think it's an action thriller, well done!

    This is an overall bad game. The graphics are bad, the geameplay is bad. It dosn't have all the fun that Counter-Strike or even tactical ops has. It is an overall bad game. Expand
