Personal review
A supremely frustrating (to the point of being comparable to IWBTG) simulation game, especially online, since you're given no identification on your enemy, thus you're supposed to wait for them to identify you as the enemy and open fire which usually turns into quite quick death for you. Even telling how to identify your allies positively (and thus who isn't your ally) by insignia, uniform appearance, etc. would've been extremely useful. Despite this, it's a very impressive simulation shooter though not very enjoyable online to me due to having no way of telling friend and enemy apart.

Officially not called nor published under any form of "Armed Assault" title, only ArmA. However, it's often mistakenly called Armed Assault 2.
