ARMA: Gold Edition is a first-person tactical military shooter simulator developed by Bohemia Interactive Studio. Gold Edition includes the expansion pack named Queen's Gambit.


A fictional island of Sahrani is divided into two parts: a communistic north and a democracy established in the south. The U.S. armed forces that participated in training in the southern part of the island prepare for their leave. This moment is used by the northern communistic dictator for the invasion. The player controls a private that hadn't left the island prior to the conflict. Your squad will assist the local resistance in repelling the attacks while awaiting reinforcements from the mainland.


The players complete linear missions which feature both main and side objectives. There is an illusion that the game is not linear at all and that the player directly affects the outcome of the war.

The game puts a strong emphasis on realism. The game features realistic weapons, vehicles, ballistics, animations, character damage, and the world's landscapes. There are no health points in the game. The players can get killed with 1-2 shots unless they wear body armor or heal their wounds in time.

The game came bundled with a level editor which gave birth to a dedicated community and allowed for the creation of countless custom scenarios and levels.

The game features a multiplayer mode in which other players can drop into your game seamlessly and either play with or against you.

ARMA: Gold Edition reviews and comments

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.

More than three campaigns, a beautiful game, it promises at least 20 hours of gameplay. We don't get bored, the world is huge, the missions are varied, in short, I'm filled. For my part, I prefer to focus on the solo, the multi mode does not tell me anything. The flaws? I'm still trying to tell the truth.. Oh yes: cutscenes! The game is beautiful, but the animators have obviously been lazy to make special anims for the cutscenes. 9.5/10-must have

This game has aged badly. It is not at all suitable for modern configurations. This is a severe paddle and the textures are crades, brief, disgusting. The configuration of the keys is a calvary and the graphical options only propose to change the resolution. Icing on the cake, the game is in English. There are not even subtitles... Everything is confused, and the game bug (colision, slowness of the viewfinder, texture that would be dispounded, flashing pixels.) Frankly it's unplayable. Do not buy... The editor should adapt the game for recent configurations. I regret this purchase.

Fortunately I do not buy this game, but I bought a friend on steam. Apparently the game is like a copy of A:CWA nothing more than adding more weapons, more graphics and things that had to have in OFP but I would say that the game is good, but it is the opposite. The game is a disgusting, my PC meets the requirements but this game is so bad optimisado that gun 2 runs 20 times better than this piece of scam. The game is poorly optimized and at the time of lowering the graphics is worse, because to the plants tansforma in a green square and the modeling of the houses and soldier as much as Vheiculos seems that ubiera crushed against the wall. Having the graphics in high anda worse and lower them to the minimum goes EVEN WORSE. The Truth The hours that I have moves are what late for the game to have a better optimization but not achieve and how little probe of the game is like a remastering of A:CWA. In a nutshell DO NOT buy it is like a ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ In a nutshell, the game is disgustingly poorly rendered. Better Comprensen The Gun 2 that goes much better than this or if not the GUN: Cold War Assault is also worthwhile. 2/10
