  1. The game that began as a free PC download has made its way to retail shelves with this Xbox 360 iteration, but it looks as if most of the fun was lost in transit.

    Even with a solid multiplayer though, there's no reason for America's Army: True Soldiers to be priced and marketed in the same class as other AAA FPS games available on the Xbox 360.
  3. In total, the whole Basic Training experience lives up to the 'basic' in the title, and will take you an hour to complete.
  4. The best area of the game is the online multiplayer, but even that pales in comparison to other possibilities like Call of Duty 4 or Halo 3.
  5. It's simply too tedious to work as either a game or as propaganda. [Holiday 2007, p.78]
  6. This game is essentially a bargain bin Xbox game and it is insulting to see it with a regular Xbox 360 game price tag.
  7. America’s Army: True Soldiers is essentially a poor man’s version of Ghost Recon or Vegas, but you can’t tell from the asking price.
  8. A breakdown of the core gameplay mechanic will haunt players early and often in America’s Army: True Soldiers.
  9. The only thing that's even remotely fun about the title is the multiplayer, and that can be had on nearly any other 360 shooter worth its weight.
  10. 37
    It’s the kind of game that makes you want to write 43 and a half pages of cuss words, slam your head on your desk 13 times and hope and pray that you don’t remember having ever played it when you wake up. This game is just plain bad.
  11. We jumped online on several occasions and it appears there are so few people playing online that we found the same dudes in a lobby on totally different nights. It’s little wonder though why there are so few soldiers playing; in this game, being a soldier sucks.
