    Which was actually fairly realistic.

    Only game I've ever seen that penalized you for discharging your weapon at a range against the Drill Sergeants orders.

    Course, they ruined it by their scenarios, which were all against insurgents who actually stood and fought.

    I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

      americas army will never be able to replicate the "feeling" of being there. Being a vet, an infantry vet, I tried it and and removed it in one day. It was like any other "shoot 'em up", "bang bang" out there. The addition of us army jargon  made it all the more comical to me.

      The Democrats now own everything from the center right to the far left. the republicans and the filthy robberbarons occupy the extreme right fringe.

        etc... of other games, yeah.

        For a video game, it was at least an attempt.  Yeah, nothing ever comes close to replicating the "Pucker Factor" of real combat.

        If it did, I have a feeling FPS video games would be a hell of a lot less popular.
