Default America's Army, the game

America's Army has got to be one of the best free games you can get your hands on (well kind of since it's paid for by some US taxes...), It's weapons operations are near flawless, graphics are decent, there are plenty of servers online, the weapon sights are superb, you can lean around corners, and the ballistics system is incredibly realistic (no 400 yard "hip shots"). Oh, yeah, the training prerequisites are an interesting addition to the realism as well.

Even with the prerequisites people have already cracked them to get to the action, but it does show the the Army isnt meant to be "kill, kill, kill"

Nonetheless the intention of Americas army has worked on some grand level. Perhaps they can get more people if they promised plasma weaponry? Extensions to the gamers have landed some in the Air force, where their gifts can be exploited to full use.

Hideo Kojima must hate America's Army, since games like it were slagged off directly in Act 3 of MGS4. :

I play, it is a great game. Though since 2.8.3 for some reason the number of servers has like halved... its hard to find a Border server anymore :'( and the DCDS won't let me download maps for some reason. Regradless, its still an awesome game. Plus its free.


The realism is extremely good, especially with the AK-47 v M16/M16-Clone. You can easily tell, at close range, how much more effective the 7.62 round of the AK is than the smaller NATO round. But at longer ranges, actually just about 400 yards, the AK becomes practically impossible to use accurately.

yeah, in urban assault the AK is awesome, though i will say that full auto as opposed to 3rd burst has saved my life in close quartes, or taken it... the SOPMOD M4 with an ACOG reflex is the king of close fights.
