Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I been following the game ARMA since the beginning and I bought it through Amazon.For my personal opinion, Bohemia Interactive still have the Legacy of Operation Flashpoint and I have no doubt about this after to be playing theirs MilSims for years.

This Company created serious Military Sims for several Armed Forces through the World, including the US. That means, they are focused in the development of a game which recreate with realism how is to be close to a real war, where the tactics are the key to achieve objectives and the common run and gun behavior in so popular games doesn't work in Operation Arrowhead, as like in a real war.

Some of the characteristics which OA have and the another Shooters doesn't:

a) Immersive environment: Operation Arrowhead is closely inspired on the current Events on the Middle East wars and you will hear NPC's speaking in Arabic, doing daily activities like walking on the streets, talking with themselves, driving cars or motorcycles. Also they react positively or negatively depending how you gain their "hearts and minds". For example if during a mission on a village accidentally you kill civilians, the community there will not provide you the necessary intel for the following missions Walking in the desert or on the streets you can almost feel the heat of the environment. This is the kind of reality which the average FPS's doesn't provide it.

b) Replayability: Operation Arrowhead have a total replayability and this is because the lack of tight linear scripts, let the gamer to use different strategies during the missions on the campaign.

Also the powerful Mission Editor let you create any mission with just a couple of mouse clicks .

5.0 out of 5 stars For anyone looking to buy this for the Day Z mod May 19, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download
For those who aren't aware, there is a Zombie apocalypse mod called Day Z that has gotten fantastic reviews and boosted ARMA II sales by several hundred percent. This mod can be run with just a purchase of Operation Arrowhead. At the time of this review, this is the cheapest way to play the Day Z mod, and adds a ton of value to an already good purchase.

Its rather difficult to set up the mod, and many of the guides refer to specifically the Steam setup. Amazon doesn't seem to like direct links, but a very detailed guide for setting up with mod with your Amazon purchase can be found by searching "getting dayz mod jpg". It should be the first link. Best of luck.

5.0 out of 5 stars ArmA II Operation Arrowhead October 1, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
GAME:
- Operation Arrowhead is a great addition to ArmA II. With less environmental effects to process (grass, trees, buildings, etc) you can turn everything up and keep your FPS in check yet still enjoy the most realistic sim ever created! As an owner/ArmAholic of the OFP/ArmA collection I can confidently say BIS continuing to lead the world of simulations... OA and the new BAF expansion make me feel like I never left the sandbox ;)

CONTENT:
- After returning and installing new hardware/Win7/ArmA I have NOT (yet) found a reason to re-install modifications. This ORIGINAL/updated install has all the basics covered now so anything else is up to the gamer.

DOWNLOAD & INSTALL:
- Unless you just happen to be around Best Buy or another seller THIS Amazon DL option is very fast and includes updates/patches you'd normally DL off Armaholic.com *hint*

BIG Thanks to AMAZON, BIS, and everyone else involved in this work of art!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intense!!! January 1, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Nice military shooter, reminds me a bit of the original Ghost Recon games back in the day. You can't just rush in, as you need a plan, and patience. Also, this game requires a strong machine to run with all the effects turned on to really enjoy it. (IMO) My system; Win7 64 bit, 8GB ram, AMD Phenom II X4 925 cpu, Radeon 6870 graphics card.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be easier February 15, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
Amazon Downloads are the easiest possible items to download, but sadly, Arma II and its mods have keys that do not work with "Steam". It is still perfectly fine. I am just saying it COULD be easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars For DayZ Buyers January 4, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I got this game solely for DayZ. I bought this game only, not the original Arma 2. You can get the Arma 2 free version from Bohemia's site (Arma2.com/free). In order to play DayZ you'll have to download that, copy the Addons folder, and paste it into the Operation Arrowhead installation folder. After that, DayZ should start up without any problems.

I bought this game here after having issues with it on Steam (Bad Serial on Startup). This version works flawlessly. I am very happy with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Designed for disiplined and mature players. April 29, 2012
By Mark

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So far I have mixed feelings about the game. The attention to detail and the depth of simulation are definitely refreshing to see in todays age of instant gratification and arcade sensations. The graphics are very well done yet the weapon sounds leave a bit to be desired, very good smoke and fire effects but not very much in the way of bullet effects or sounds...it would be nice to see more dust blowing in the wind and such. I have not played the game to great length yet but feel as though it does offer reward if you want to put the time into it. I would have to describe the game as more of the old style microprose type simulators in the old school days with some very good graphics, yet lacking a bit on the special effects. The game, for sure, has a feel of military written all over it, which may be depressing or exciting to you depending on how you see it. Games attempting simulation aspects are always about the balance between realism and playability. In single player campaign mode I'm finding the AI to be pretty lame so far, so I am looking foward to experimenting with multiplayer while using the single player as a training tool. What really makes the game stand out is the open ended way you appraoch missions; there is nothing scripted about this game which is very refreshing. I find flying the helicopters quite realistic and was suprised to see that level of detail to them in a foot soldier simulator. You can assign both a flight stick and TRACK IR to the game as well. I have a hunch that ARMA 3 will hit the mark ARMA 2 has hit but with all the special effects and finishing touches many may find missing somewhat in ARMA 2. I give it 4 stars because it's a great game with simulation aspects missing from Battlefield 3 but having some loose ends throughout it detail wise. If you crave a Battlefield simulation without the Arcade confinement this game is worth getting into.
