Playing this game is really cool when you make your own missions!.... I mean you can make a realistic scenarios that makes the game so epic. explossions and the addrenaline rush is what I love adding to my scenarios... theres just one catch to making missions.... You need to know the init scripts. But otherwise its a legend...

wait, no. this game is badly optimized, i recommend you'll wait till you upgrade your rig then play this game. the game doesn't worth to play even in low setting. and you can only play it in the minimum setting.

Don't buy this game! Steam sucks, so what i did read from the web, Steam hasn't got key codes for new players, so you can't play. Trust me, i can't play. If you don't trust me search 'Arma 2 operation arrowhead failed to contact key server' !$%£ YOU STEAM!
