    This game uses the same engine as XCOM: Enemy Unknown (2012). Now even in XCOM this engine was very deficient, sporting highly limited simulation and nearly non-existant AI. In Arma Tactics this already mediocre engine is used in a very unpolished and amateurish way, leading to multiple glitches within the first ten minutes. I can only discourage purchase of this game.

    Arma 3 is awesome. Arma Tactics on the other hand is just simply a bad game. A bad flawed copy of much better tactical games such as 7.62 High Caliber, Jagged Alliance etc. I do not mind the simple graphics, but I do care about the tactical part of the game. Most enemies rush you down and line up behind each other. This means the AI is dumb as hell. The game is using the 'X-COM' kind of 2 action/turn system, which is a piece of oversimplified crap in my opinion. The story is weak, characters are cliché too. The HUD is also a piece of useless junk. I Have no idea how come they dare to ask money for this... Expand

    Total crap, I mean really just total crap. As a fan of JA2, XCom and other similar games I got enraged by just how bad one can make a remake of JA. Here you have to wait for stupid animations of the camera after just anything. They constantly take control from your hands and force you to watch those animations over and over. The whole interface seems to be optimized for touchscreens and not the mouse. E.g. your camera view will NOT scroll when you touch the world borders. I kept accidentally clicking thru the tutorial messages. The whole combat system is so primitive that you just can't call this a turn based strategy or a tactics game. The 1st mission you can see in the tutorial is linear as hell. Honestly, my impression is that their dev team was lead by some 15yo idiot or they have no testing department at all, or something similar. One just can't release games like this and ask for money. Devs, did you play JA2? Geez, if this is what the genre has developed itself into I'm afraid for the humanity. Where was Valve looking at when accepting this crap to Steam? Expand

    Arma Tactics is not bad at all, but too simplistic and tactically limited. [Nov 2013]

    Too much is crude or dysfunctional, and with no stellar ambition to justify it. [Christmas 2013, p.83]

    It feels like some kind of alpha still in development. Some of you might be able to ses a bright side of this game, but at the moment it's really hard to recommend.
