Jan Prazak, Bohemia's PR manager explains the basic workings of the ARMA II team commands, again using comprehensive video footage captured ingame.
"The system of team command in ARMA II is a very complex one, allowing players to enjoy the role of commander of various sizes of squads, from leader of a small team up to and including division commander."
introduces Jan Prazak and continues "our system ofcommand, though well arranged and easy-to-use, could be mistakenly understood as difficult and slow in hectic situations such as CQB and large battles, especially in comparison to the current trend of modern games to overly simplify everything to appeal to the most casual of gamers. My intention is to show to the wider public that this system works perfectly and by mastering our team command options, everyone could enjoy the game even more than before. Various situations which are initially difficult to handle are then made simple, moreover giving the satisfaction of successful leadership directly on the battlefield."
ARMA II offers the ultimate realistic combat simulation experience in a modern day setting. With unprecedented freedom of movement, actions and tactics, the game allows players to immerse themselves in battle as never seen before.
