Ive been contemplating between OFP or BF2 or maybe both. But ill just focus on OFP since its 8 dollars right now. How hard is it to learn? Also is it compatible with windows XP? and maybe most importantly, how is the online community?

OFP is a fantastic game, with tons of mods, and still tons of online action, (check out my gaming groups site, http://www.tacticalgamer.com, we have two open servers up and they have players almost nightly.

For 9 bucks you can't beat that price...get it, get SP and MP action.

BUT... a re-make of OFP is due out this X-mas called Allied assualt... so you might want to wait.

It will be called simply Armed Assault, but I don't know about pricing. I think more than an add-on, but maybe not a full-price game.

Armed Assault (sounds like a mugging) is going to be a moderately priced game. ie. about 60-70% of the usual max priced game. This is due to not adding that much to the predecessor except DirectX9 features and MP Join-In-Progress.

Best way to tell if you will like ArmA is to buy OFP, either the Game Of The Year edition or with the Resistance expansion.

Make sure it does have the Resistance campaign though or you will be very limited in what downloads you can use and there will be no servers for you to use.

I'll be getting AA, just for the MP Join-In-Progress option alone.
