I remember playing the game at launch, it was actually very good. The worst thing was the camping of both sides.

Other than that though, everything was spot on for the most part. Graphics were great for the time, the realism was there, gameplay was fun (minus camping).

As usual, America's Army 3 will be an entirely free game to download. Unreal Engine 3 graphics are set to mark the significant upgrade, while the Army promises plenty of new missions, features and gameplay tweaks.

i never played the first one, but i'm assuming the maps are pretty big? so with that said, UE3 already eats cpu's for breakfast. so a guy's gunna need a pretty hefty C2D or quad core to run this game i'm betting. that's the main reason i dont like UE3, but there are other's

That's because the beta program was ONLY HomeLAN members. Me included. We had to do a presentation before the Pentagon's Armed Services Committee. I was so nervous that day. So nervous that when we were "briefing" for a mission, I accidentally shot Sgt Gibson in the back. I got a good chewing out by Serpentius and ChemicalX. Sgt Gibson was cool, though. He just ran over to the table and got a health kit. Then it all went downhill when we were outbid for developing part 2 (and takeover of the AA1 servers).

Lol yeah. I got done decryping... now I just have to download the other 50% of the game apparently. Why can't some preloads just give us most of the game rather than half? :\
