It's Official

The true sequel to OFP without all the garbage from ArmA in it.

Oh I hear ya, matey! What's worse, is that this one includes ragdoll, advanced physics, destructible environments, etc etc. Everything that was touted too be in ArmA, but wasn't. It's obvious that they needed the cash influx.

Why wait? Enlist in the real military right now, TODAY! Within a few short weeks you can be doing it for real, with real enemies, real bullets and real blood and you won't have to complain about "beta versions" and the options you didn't get.

Meanwhile, you should stock up on cheese and crackers. It's a real shame to waste a good whine like that.

Jeeeeeeeesus Christ, were those pics the game?

Heheheheheh pay for Combat Mission Shock Force, when the industry can produce the above?

There's no way even a bug free CM SF could compete with that.

@ Everyone

I think BIS ruined any chance they had concerning Game 2, which is now called ArmA 2, with even associating it with the previous game.

I have a little more faith in this title.

Well, we shall see... But I'm certain that OFP2 will not have all of the system issues that ArmA did/does.
