Extremely fun and rewarding - there is a bit of a learning curve and counterintuitive controls (which can be rebinded) but after investing some time in it, fiddling with settings, etc, it's as fluid as any other game. Singleplayer is OK, AI is pretty smart (moreso with some mods) but multiplayer is where it's at... find a good team/server, invest a lot of time and get a lot of reward. On the topic of mods, the modding community is very active with tons of mods being developed and released; most major military equipment (and some civie stuff) is represented, a few complete conversions out there too. Oh and if you get this game, get combined operations (original ArmA 2 + ArmA 2 OA)... cheaper than getting both seperate and you'll be covered in terms of required MP content.
