User reviews for America's Army
8.6 / 10Combined Score
Some bugs and laggy at times
Americas army is one of the great games of the last decade, in my opinion. It realisticly portrays the life and times of a US army soldier. Before you enter the battlefield you must first complete your basic infantry training, and in my opinion, this is a great touch to the game. Once you have gone through your basic training soldiers can choose to complete optional training, which allows you to play new maps. Players can gain qualifications in: Special Forces, Airborne, Sniper and medic training. The graphics are great, especially on some of the sf maps like hospital
The only bad thing about this game is the critical errors- they happen to everyone at some point and they are extremely annoying but the AA developers are bringing out a new patch soon which should (hopefully) fix the problem
Overall i would give Americas Army a 4.9 out of 5.0 simply because of the errors, Oh and by the w...
Training can be kinda tedious, can get rather laggy at times, may be a little too slow-paced for some.
The saying that the best things in life are free is true. America's Army offers excellent gameplay, with decent graphics and superb support from the US Army dev team at no price, except perhaps to the US taxpayer.
The game is based on real life. Before you play, you have to complete basic training, which will teach you marksmanship, moving around, the various US Army weapons which you will be using, and urban combat. Once you're done, you can start playing online.
You can also do more advanced training missions. You can go for airborne (paratroop) training or sit for several written tests to become a combat medic. If you hit enough targets (36/40) with the M16, you can train to be a sniper. Lastly, if you're good enough, you can go for the incredibly hard Special F...
-Quite hard to get in to
-Medic class overrated and underdeveloped
Americas Army is a freely distrubuted recruiting tool for, funnily enough, the US Army. It is up with the best of them with regards to graphics, sound, overall appereance and playability.
It starts with you, the player, having to complete your annual weapon shoot (easy to pass, but rock hard to gain an expert badge [36/40 needed]which allows you to continue to sniper school). Then you must complete the obstacle course in a certain time, followed by familiarisation with US weapons.
Finally you go to MOUT McKenna to finalise and put into practice your newly gained skills of a US soldier, by clearing houses in the dark, through sewers and what not.
From there you have access to the multiplayer servers, with some VERY well put together maps...
