I thought America's Army: Rise of Soldier was accurate, fun and challenging. The game provides a great balance of being able to shoot tons of terrorists but not being so shoot-em-up then you run around like a tank mowing down everything in site.

I really liked the realistic missions, everything around you affects your performance and the performance of your allies. I also liked the weaponry, usually people like full automatic weaponry to cause as much chaos as possible, while guns like the saw offered that, I loved how with your M4 rifle if you places the shot well enough, it could provide a fatal blow with just one shot.

There was one thing that really bothered me sometimes though. Glitches. It seemed like it was too often I was failing missions because of glitches. For example, during a sniper mission there was an endless about of enemies because the next part of the mission was never triggered. I had fun though shooting so many people, running out of ammo and then taking a last stand with my pistol.

ok first of all you are going to get shot and die many times sooner or later. and your chances of beating a level on your first try will not always be very high. you will most likely need to do levels over again to get more skill points and exp. so if your dying alot on a level dont feel like a loser and send the game back its a tough game once you get into it alot and this game will require alot of patience so if you are a person who likes to fly through shooter games perfectly without dying dont rent this game well i guess thats all you really need to know hope you enjoy this game oh i almost forgot this is the perfect game for people who are really good with strategy

America's Army is a very realistic shooter. No shot you take is perfect when under enemy fire which is great and truly challenges your skill. One thing I do not like is the constant orders of your sniper instructor who tells you to move and then you are spotted and the mission is over. The game does capture the realism of war. The visuals are not so impressive. On line is great and climbing the ranks is a great feature.
