A more realistic version to train kids on, is where rocket launchers are set up on donkey carts, IDE's are planted in the corpses of dead animals on the side of the road, children throw rocks at your patrol, snipers are shooting at you from unseen positions, suicide bombers try to blow you up at check points, and civilians look exactly like the "terrorists" until they pull out an RPG or AK-47.

The above would be much more realistic, but not politically correct (or good for recruitment), so I doubt the Army will ever put out a realistic war game.

well, I'm playing it, aren't I??

I'm British, as it says under my 'on air' avatar.

Although if you're going to download it, make sure you get the patch as well... Otherwise you won't even be able to pass Basic Infantry Training.

As long as your country isn't under a trade embargo from the US, you can play it.

I've played it, from what i saw it (as with its predicesors) is built of the Unreal Tournament engine (now theres an irony in itself), the latest version i believe uses the UT2003 engine. I didn't really enjoy it too much, the 'basic training' part is very slow going if you are someone who wants to get busy fragging.. but its not about fragging! ooh no! its about subliminal messages which pop up on your screen saying 'JOIN THE ARMY, KILL THE BAD DUDES' (ok, so not physically, but thats the impression i was given). The game got very repetitive and boring.. the next round i played was.. 'JOIN THE ARMY, KILL THE BAD DUDES.. AGAIN!' and from what i've seen from TV and the internet (ok, so those are bad sources), it doesn't give the impression of real life at all.. when you game, you don't sit and ask yourself.. 'Is what i am doing wrong?', you just say 'Screw it' and TK a mate for a laugh (c'mon.. we've all done it )

/me waits for all the comments based on my last statement

Anyway, its a very slow game, which is unfortunant, i thought it had potential :/

well, if the next recruits are to be former player of the US army game, the future will be very promising for the yankees

people go running onto the battle field shouting 'OMG WTF WALLHAX0R!', because they have come round the corner shooting weapons like they don't give a shite
