America's Army 3 announced

The US Army have announced the latest game to fly under the 'America's Army' banner, imaginatively titled America's Army 3. It will be available to download later this year, and as with the previous two incarnations, it will be free to download and play.

Read the full article here.

Why is it offensive? If they are going to include an opposing force in a game, then both sides should be playable. In any other similar FPS you can - look at the Battlefield series as examples. The US Army have reduced the conflicts down to a game, that's more offensive in my opinion, especially as the conflicts are still being fought.

Is it me or is this the worst recruitment idea ever. "Gee, I just died for the second time in five minutes...this is meant to be realistic...I know, I'll go and join the army so I can do this in reality" (was going to use real life but that would be short lived...I can keep doing these puns till I get shot BTW :-D)

hmm, i just think games shoudn't be made for those things, really, anways entering the army is a serious thing afterall, if they go to war you can die there.

also this article is remembering me from an old simpsons episode....a music like this... yvan eht nioj ...... (join the navy)

anyways i will download this thing and see how the game looks lol, if is possible to download outisde US lol

It wasn't as offensive it's just that there is also Russia. Ok I'm sorry for that last remark anyways, I never like AA games.

It is, one of the reasons why they don't put blood effects in the game to deter possible recruits.

It is a fun game though. Haven't played since 2.6 because they messed up when they updated it. CoD4/5 is more fun though
