1 out of 5 eggsDoes not install

Pros: Seems like a good game and is cheap.

Cons: Will not install: could be due to set up file mismatch with the other dat files, could be DVD firmware issues (this is my favorite), or who knows. If I have to update the firmware of my DVD drive to load this game, then I am out.

Other Thoughts: Wasted three hours of my life trying to install this game, including the last three minutes to write this review. If you want to make a hobby out of trying to load a game with little or no tech support, then this is the game for you.

5 out of 5 eggsMassive and realistic

Pros: Great game, unlimited customizations (if you know how to model and script) which has one of the largest modding communities since OFP, and it looks great if you have the "horsepower" to run it.

Cons: Not much a con, more of set expectations. The environments and the level detail require a powerful PC to run. Understand running with minimum requirements on the larger maps, and playing multiplayer on custom missions will tax your system further, see my configuration below as a good base to enjoy the game.

Other Thoughts: I run the game at 50-70FPS depending on number of scripts running, what is happening (buildings being destroyed, etc) and certain mod content can cause significant FPS drop depending on the performance of your PC. Another factor is how much "view distance" you set and the person who created the custom "Mission" (some refer to it as a "map", a "mission" utilizes either all or a small portion of the "map"). A mission creator can dictate how much view distance you see though fog or dust in the distance. Enabling high view distances can allow you to see mountains in good detail 10KM away but will hamper performance. So set your settings accordingly and beware some missions require high performance.

My configuration:

AMD 2GB 6950 by HIS (HDMI) -> Dell MP5100 @ 1920x1080 30hz
AMD 955BE clocked to 3.8 on air cool
DFI LanParty DK 790FX-M2R
4GB Corsair XMS2 DHX

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This game is amazing, it makes call of duty look like a walk in the park. If you want something that's real, or atleast the closest thing to it without you actually being in the armed forces this is the game for you.

Cons: Vehicles are too realistic, can be hard to drive...but that isn't really a con, it makes the game even more fun.

Voice acting isn't perfect, but its not too horrible that you can't play it.

Other Thoughts: Buy the game you wont regret it!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Fun new addons. The DRM isn't horrible assuming you activate it online. 20%ish better frame rates than arma 2 for me. (Xeon x3320 4 gigs ram win 7 radeon 5850)

Cons: No computer in existence will render the game on the highest settings at a playable frame rate. I believe SLI has little effect on frame rate. The hdd is a bottle neck for frame rates if you're flying or spinning around with a high view distance.

Other Thoughts: The best way to reduce texture load times is to install ~24gigs of ram and make a ram drive to store the game. A cheaper, but better than a hdd solution would be to get an SSD and run the game off of that. I believe the slow seek times of a hdd are the biggest problem with loading textures as the head has to go to many different locations to get the info.

5 out of 5 eggsVery GREAT Game

Pros: First of all new egg u rock again. First place to have this version after it sold out. I used the auto-notify feature on the website got an email and ordered. Got it on time and all is great.

The game adds many new additions including my favorite an actual radar system. Love the ULB's and weapons added as well. Totally worth it.

Cons: Wish had more time to play it

Needs a better first aid system in game but for a mil-sim perfect

Other Thoughts: Second purchase from new egg and very PLEASED

Ordering a SAMSUNG P2250 from here now so will see how that goes

5 out of 5 eggsOperation Arrowhead

Pros: In short, Arrowhead is ARMA II with a giant mod already installed for you. If you already have ARMA II this is still a nice upgrade and I recommend it.

The cool thing about Arrowhead is if you already have ARMA II installed on your HDD, you can play ARMA II using Arrowhead. You can also run any of the mods you downloaded for ARMA II with Arrowhead.

The campaign is better than ARMA II since you are not stuck in the role of Razor Team. Arrowhead branches out to different roles within the US Army such as mechanized infantry, armored divisions, special forces, etc.

The visuals are much nicer. Bohemia did a really nice job enhancing textures on just about everything. Arrowhead is also less taxing on your hardware than ARMA II so you will be able to squeeze out more FPS. I ran the Arrowhead benchmark with 4km distance and everything on Very High with no AA or Anitstropic and received 23 FPS

Cons: There are very few bugs in Arrowhead. Which is a huge improvement from ARMA II's launch fail. Arrowhead at its current stage is very playable with just some minor bugs. It will probably be taken care of for the most part with the next patch.

If you run mods from ARMA II in MP you will crash a server.

Other Thoughts: PII X4 955 @ 3.72 GHz
Xigmatek S1283
Gigabyte GA790FXT-UD5P
Mushkin Enhanced Redline 1600MHz 4GB
Sapphire 5770
Corsair 650HX
