    Well, yeah. But it looks like it's advertising to support recruiting, which seems a fair use of tax dollars.

    Plus, hey, free video game for everybody!

    Aye. It's a well designed game, and it promotes teamwork rather than the "lone wolf" of most online Shooters.

    I know they made a version for the X-Box, or 360. Dunno how it did. I'm guessing that one you had to pay for.

    The superior PC version though is free.

    X-Box versions suuuuuuuuuuuuck. I thought I might actually like the one thats for the 360 because its made from UBIsoft (I'm a fan of them). I may have gotten it if it was for free like the PC version but nope, it's just a clone of GRAW2, with a worse interface and graphics.

    You should also be able to get the game on a DVD at any Army recruitment office if you don't wanna waste download bandwidth. I'd probably play the game by my vid card is inadequate to run it.

    Err...America's Army has been out a good 3-4 years now, if not longer. I don't see how they "cloned" a newer engine. Unless the X-Box version is completely different than the PC version, in which case, alright then.

    No no no. What I mean is that America's Army for the Xbox 360 is a clone of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2. A really bad clone too.
