Hi guys..

please help me decide : ARMAII or BF BadCompany2 ?

Here's the pattern of games that I like and dislike; maybe this will help which will suit me better...

my likes ( non-complicated, hassle-free shooter that I've accustomed to)
* battlefield2
* far cry 2
* counterstrike source
* blackhawkdown

my DISLIKES (complicated, hassle-full shooter that I can't stand)
* STALKER


Thanks guys :)

The choice is pretty clear then. Arma = Sim while BC2 is an arcade shooter. You'll find yourself getting into BC2 a lot faster and easier then Arma 2.

I would also recommend BC2. Along with a fun single player, it has very good multiplayer.

Dear gamer brother,

Thanks for the input :) I'll have to get BC2 when its on sale - I'm not in a hurry ; I can wait till winter.

I did however downloaded ARMA2 demo off steam. The graphics are to die for ! I suggest BC2 player to try Arma2 demo out :) Let me know how it compare with BC2 graphics and FPS comparison.

Thanks :)

BC2 is far more stylized and pretty to look at I'd say. The interface for Arma2 was a little clunky from what I remember but it was a fun game. What's most impressive though is both games have amazing sound systems. I've never been able to pick out exactly where someone is as well as I can in BC2 based on sound alone. If someone fires a shot in a building near by you, you'll almost know what building, their elevation and the approximate distance away from you where they were. I've gotten hit markers snapshooting through walls where I can hear gunfire through the window near next to them.
