I had mixed feelings about ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead
when I reviewed it earlier this month
. It's a beautiful experience that stands apart from traditional FPS games, but I had some reservations that prevented me from giving it a full recommendation. All players hesitant to jump on the bandwagon can download a 3GB demo starting today. It will contain one single-player mission, one single-player scenario, three tutorial scenarios, three multiplayer modes and a mission editor. Needless to say, it's a large demo that provides enough content to decide if you want to purchase the game.

Demo Released For Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead
Bohemia Interactive releases the hotly anticipated demo for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead - the latest hit in its line-up of military simulator games.
Prague 20th July, Czech Republic – Award-winning independent development studio Bohemia Interactive is pleased to announce the release of the hotly anticipated demo for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, a massive standalone expansion pack to the critically acclaimed military simulator Arma 2.
This 3GB demo thrusts you straight into the unique gameplay featured in the full version of Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead; it showcases the realistic sandbox environment, offers multiplayer gameplay, and gives you a peek at the vast array of vehicles, weapons, units at your disposal.
The demo offers a massive amount of highly detailed content, giving you a sharp flavour of the epic new environment (modelled on real-world data), a full taste of the mission editor, and a real opportunity to experience the most authentic mil-sim available: war without the training wheels.
Bohemia Interactive CEO, Marek Spanel, described the demo as tantamount to a game in its own right: "This demo is huge. Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead is not a simple expansion - it's a massive extension of a living world for a passionate fan community. Our goal is to offer the chance to experience as much of the new and unique features as possible. To be honest, we believe that there is more fun to be had in this demo than in some full games; the editor alone enables a user to create hours of custom content."
