Sequel to the highly successful Operation Flashpoint, ARMA: Combat Operations is a first person tactical military shooter on the PC with large elements of realism and simulation. This game features a blend of large-scale military conflict spread across large areas alongside the more close quartered battles. You'll be thrust into the midst of an engaging and expanding storyline, fighting against smart, aggressive enemies who will continually provide a challenge over a massive landscape.
  • Story driven single player campaign: Write your own campaign storyline by choosing the right mission order when playing the 20+ missions. Play it differently next time and find new ways to victory!
  • Large scale multiplayer: Use ARMA Combat Operations' strong multiplayer mode and play battles where tanks supported by infantry and helicopters take control of an enemy city. The engine supports 50+ live opponents in a role of both friendly and enemy forces.
  • More than 30 weapons: Every weapon has unique firing characteristics featuring the new and improved recoil system.
  • Vast environment to explore: Explore Sahrani, an area over 400 square kilometers in size, full of flora and fauna.
  • More than 30 modern vehicles: All vehicles in the game can be controlled - tanks, armored vehicles, helicopters, airplanes, civilian cars or even boats.
  • Multiple gunners: Utilize the multiple gunner positions on tanks and helicopters to rain death on your enemies both in multiplayer missions and single player campaign.
  • HDR Lighting effects: Ambushing an enemy with the sun in your eyes leaves you at the disadvantage. Think smart, fight better!
  • Real constellations and tides: ARMA's great depth even includes such features as fully simulated star maps, lunar cycles and tides. Watch where you park your vehicle, soldier!
  • Built-in mission editor: Create you own scenarios using the easy-to-use mission wizard, advanced built-in mission editor, scripting language or BI tools available online and share your creation with the game.

It is really nice as the other weapon I however I have a problem in this game do not hear the audio I tried to put it to the max maybe I downloaded poorly or is my version of Windows 7 The audio here is not compatible with the game if any of you could To solve the problem I would give 2 items of my inventory for free

After finishing the game several times (all campaigns), I can say what I think. I started this game when it came out. I liked the graphics at the time. They are still not too bad even if they veilsmooth. The main campaign was nice, but the others had no interest, pity. The AI is not at the top, that says this is still a good ARMA.

Although His graphical environment may seem somewhat crude, (and it was at the time), it is commendable the intention that BI has to make war games that pose an extra challenge to the mere pull the trigger. That's Weapon: Combat Operations, a challenging but very satisfying FPS with a large community that provided modifications for all tastes that includes coop scenarios.

Every now and then I try to play it, punctually I get up from the chair and I leave. One of the strangest games I've ever seen. Bugs everywhere, bugs everywhere, and infinite glitches. The game mode is nice (if it were not for the bugs), the tutorial is buggy and you will have to start over often, sometimes the game itself is Bugga and does not allow you to perform any action.. But from what I read I saw that in very few talk about this thing (however there)! I Don't know what to say.. One of those games that leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth, because in the few moments of lucidity seems simply Meraglioso!

The enemies behave as if they were not afraid to die, but I am afraid to die. The enemies know where I am and come to my position even if I have always been hidden, I do not know where they are and I have to risk to go look for them. The enemies See me through the foliage even if this is so dense as not to allow me to see them. This is NOT realism but they are simply the classic flaws of all FPS video games. This WEAPON has all the flaws typical of a FPS but it is not a FPS and I do not provide the advantages of a FPS. Here There are no HUD that show me where the enemies are. Here there are no "medikits" to cure me and with a single shot I die. I have made of video games in 30 years, even very difficult and I swear that I put myself with patience because I knew his reputation but I was enough 2 hours to understand that this WEAPON did not like. They have defined it very difficult because very realistic but in my opinion this is not realism, it is simply a game made bad and I do not recommend it.
