I got Armed Assault a few weeks ago from one of my close friends (Free and Legal, he bought the game for me). It is possibly *the* most realistic gaming experience I've ever had. With features such as a deep and detailed campaign with a ton of optional side missions, it had me playing it for long stretches of time. It also comes packed with a ton of drivable vehicles and usable weapons. As with most games, the teams are the US verses the SLA (A communist state with old cold war weapons). Vehicles include: Hummers, M1A1, M113's. Harriers, Ah-1, UH-60, AH-6. on the SLA side: UAZ, T-72's, BDRMs, BMP-2's, MI-17s, KA-50s, and much more. I recommend this game to ANYONE who's sick and tired of BF2's lame ass game play, and those who want to be challenged by AI. In this game you cant just go into a town or an area full of AI and just shoot everything. You're most likely going to get shot a few steps in. You need to plan things out and then execute them according to plan.
