These games have never run well for me (fps -wise) and I've always had issues with missing / flashing textures.

Do they ever fix them?

A small group of Special Forces and Researchers are sent to a Mediterranean island deep behind enemy lines. However, the mission is compromised and the task force destroyed, leaving Cpt. Scott Miller washed ashore upon the hostile island. In his effort to carry out the mission, he will face the dangers of modern warfare, an unforgiving environment, and the consequences of his own decisions...

The only thing ARMA 2 needed to be perfect was a Bad Company 2-like destructible physics model. Oh, and less command-general type missions an more awesome small squad special forces type stuff, those always rock.
