How we rate the games?
Arma 3 is a first person shooter game. If you like cooperation games, this one is for you, but as long as you play in single player, the Artificial Intelligence is the one you will cooperate with. Generally speaking, the AI is going to help you all the time against the enemy. I didn't like the talking of the other soldiers, since they talked to much.
The gameplay was just like the other first person shooting games. You get your personal weapon, learn the strategy where your team will go and that is it. The orders given to you from the captain were very boring since you could not do without them. At first it might look like a game with a free environment, but you end up going where your orders tell you to go. Even though the team might move forward you can just move around and do what you want, unless you get killed and than it is your own fault.
The optimization of the game was good. I liked the graphics optimization since I used the ultra graphics on the game's settings, while recording. You will get satisfied with the optimization about graphics, but not about the artificial intelligence. The other soldiers went around and you didn't understand how did they see the enemies coming. Even the enemies were difficult to see because of drawing distance of sprites, a very important aspect of every single game. Despite the bad stuff, the game approach to using maps and showing the trip where to go, was a very nice feature and somewhat had to be linked with the movements of the soldiers.
The graphics where especially good. I really liked the lightning and textures, but the terrain grass was not so good. There are better ways of implementing the graphics sprites for the grass so I guess, compared to the other ways, this kind of grass implementation was not good at all. The models of the game were good, but not perfect since there could be a lot of improvements. Some of the other parts, like bullets, could be seen while being fired. This is a very good feature.
The idea is somewhat different, but is boring. You can't always hear orders and act like you are being said and that is not even an idea since it is implemented on purpose, to make you go where they want to go, otherwise its fail. This is strange too because it can't always be like that and implementing only this as an idea is a true disaster.
Overall, what I liked most was the graphics of this game. Everything else had some deep holes which have to be filled up. I would not really recommend this game. The choice is yours!
