Age Rating: ESRB Mature | PEGI 16

The original Arma redefined the realistic military shooter, but its sequel takes it to the next level, offering up an enormous tactical playground in the form of the fictional nation of Chernarus. Much like Bohemia Interactive's original Operation Flashpoint, Arma 2 makes every decision, every minute and every bullet count, with far more authentic ballistics and injury models than the norm - this is not a game where you automatically recover health just by crouching behind a desk.

You'll probably dip into the story missions, but you'll stay for the tense, lengthy multiplayer sessions, for the hugely dedicated community and of course for the mods, many of which rival the official expansion packs in terms of quality.

A brilliantly in-depth and vast war simulator that rewards your patience. But buyer beware: this game has AI issues.
