So, I really like realistic military games. I played Hidden and Dangerous 1 and 2 several times through back in the day. Armed Assault seemed to fit that niche so I tried it out. Now, I don't mind total realism, one shot one kill gameplay. But even considering that, Armed Assault just seemed WAY too hard.

I got through the first mission without getting killed after a couple of tries. Then I get to the second mission, with two optional missions.

The first optional mission is to go out, as a lone sniper, to kill an entire platoon of enemy troops single handed.

The second optional mission is to go behind enemy lines, once again all by yourself, to blow up about a half dozen enemy tanks single handed.

Now its one thing if this were Quake or something, and I were able to mow down rows of enemies while shrugging off my own wounds. But its not -- the missions are just as impossible as they would be in real life. They are suicide missions. In the second mission of the game.

I really like the idea of Armed Assault, but its missions seemed literally impossible so I just gave up.
