General: AA is a squad-based
multiplayer FPS that uses the Unreal's Warfare engine. This game was created by
the U.S. Army as a recruiting tool. It is being funded by the Army for five
years. You are able to play with up to 32 people in this realistic Army
simulator. Each team has an objective to complete, the team with all their
objectives completed wins. Before playing online, though, you must complete
training to get you familiar with AA's controls and weapons. All the weapons are
actual Army weapons, and they all fire very realistically. All of the guns can
have malfunctions that you must clear from time to time.

Comment: Talk about propaganda. The U.S. Army making a FPS game...and it is free. All you have to do is register to their Web site. Single player is weak, but this game was meant as an multiplayer game. There are a couple training missions where you take orders from a screaming sergeant. Multiplayer was kind of boring. You are supposed to work with your team, but most of the games I joined do not. Well at least it is free, so I can't complain...much. I heard that the game drastically changed over the past year but I haven't downloaded the new versions yet. What sucks is that I can't uninstall this game now. The uninstaller crashes every time I use it. Good thing I fragmented my hard drive. I don't plan on installing this game anymore unless I hear an amazing update which makes this game enjoyable.
