    I find it to be quite a fun game and have been playing since 2004.

    If you like FPSs you might not like this game as it is a sim. The graphics are up to shoe box shooters as a large chunk or Europe is modelled and the game has a view distance of up to 8000 metres.

    looks good and i have thought about it before, i believe its a massive game, is it easy to set up and get straight into?

    is it easy to set up and get straight into?

    No, it's very hard to get into.

    The reason is that there are no hit points in the game. People don't lose 50% of their health per shot, etc, but die most times from one shot.

    Shooting a tank 50 times if the shots don't penetrate don't kill the tank. The rounds have to penetrate, hit ammo, fuel, crew, etc and destroy the tank.

    There's also bullet drop to contend with meaning you have to work out ranges to shoot at.

    And to top it all off, Quake style play = you dead from someone who was hiding in concealment/cover.


    Most people though seem to complain about the graphics from what I've heard though, which is a pity because imho the gameplay is brilliant.
