The Army released another update (Version 1.5) in a series of periodic improvements to the America's Army: Operations.
Consider it a little holiday gift from the U.S. Army. While the Army game developers will spend their holiday break merging the new code drop from Epic Games into the Operations game and working on the Radio Tower map, gamers can enjoy some new goodies just in time for the new year.

What's New:
Parental Controls. Parents will now be able to alter and control certain aspects of gameplay in America's Army: Operations. With this new patch, parents can disable all the blood in the game, enable a language filter, disallow the ability to play as an Advanced Marksman, and limit gameplay to only those missions which features the MILES laser-tag type play. This parental link has been added to the main menu.

Weapons Cache SE (Special Edition). By player demand, the Army has significantly increased the size of the ever-popular Weapons Cache map. With an additional objective, the map is now almost twice the size. The Assaulting team has many more options to attack, and the Defense will need to be on their toes to win now!

Other New Features Include:
New voices for Opfor
Optional "Reason" to votekick.
Type "votekick PLAYERNAME REASONINDEX" to initiate a votekick with a reason.
Type "reasonlist" to find an available REASONINDEX (i.e. "votekick Kermit 3" will initiate a votekick on Kermit with the reason: "Player has used foul or abusive language").
Running animations for grenades.
Server list will display Leased and Leased Official icons.
New Groups for Navy, Air Force, Marines, Army (star).
Changes Include:

Expanded LAN browser to 8 servers.
ROE Kick penalty reduced from 1.25*Limit to 0.5*Limit.
e.g. ROE Limit = 400
Previous kick penalty = 500
New kick penalty = 200
ROE Kick at start of round incurs maximum penalty.
e.g. Previous penalty = CURRENT_ROE + KICK_PENALTY
New penalty = ROE_LIMIT + KICK_PENALTY
Team attack message changed from a player broadcast to a game broadcast (i.e. not subject to flood limit).
HUD Options screen changed from HideNV to HideOptics (will hide binocs and NVG icons).
Adjustments to weapon and grenade load-outs on Bridge map to better balance gameplay.
Fixes Include:

SP commo no longer uses enemy voices ("FRAG OUT!" in US_Weapons).
Players on 2nd page in Admin Command Post should now be selectable.
Fixed tracers no displaying when prone.
Flashbang sound is now scaled by distance.
Zoom + Reload with sniper rifles no longer disables sprinting.
Various minor map fixes.

The America's Army game consists of two games. The first is Operations, an action-packed first-person 3D game where you enter into "virtual service" to the United States. As part of the Army, you are bound by the laws of land warfare, Army values and realistic rules of engagement as you go through more than 25 levels of gameplay including single-player training missions and teamwork-based multiplayer networked squad versus squad operations. Mission accomplishment and a high ranking in the game are a function of team effort. Teamwork and responsibility are key, and those players that violate the rules will find themselves in a virtual jail cell at Fort Leavenworth. Operations is rated T for Teen by the ESRB and recommended for recruits 13 years old and above.

Based upon standard Army force-on-force training practices, you will always perceive you are in the U.S. Army. Your comrades always appear to be in U.S. uniforms while the opposing force always appears to be in opposing force uniforms with appropriate weapons. Training missions teach basic character controls and movements and proper weapons usage for official ammunition like automatic weapons, assault rifles, smoke grenades and sniper rifles. You can even recover and employ opposing force weapons during battle.

~*~Don't bother with any other reviews.~*~This game kicks major ass if you can get a good team together. Gameplay is tops, the army did an excellent job putting this game together, the amount of detail is amazing.But, just like how this v. 1.5 the game still has problems. I upgraded to v.1.2.1 now to v.1.5 and it still continues to have problems. I don't really like how you throw grenades and they don't roll at all, that isn't good game Physics. Doors also have problems, weapon switching has been improved, communication is better, and having the field reporting is very helpful by just hitting "u". I think that team balancing needs to be fixed...if it even actually exists.Also, I would like to see other types of game play, besides just objectives. Like, different mods that people could make...what do you call the infamous Counter-Strike? Maps that would be capture the flag type of gameplay, or acutal missions that you could do, or what about deathmatch, and team deathmatch.So far, I've really enjoyed playing this game and I am getting very adept at it, it takes awhile, and some people have way too much time on their hands (be aware, gameplay is way harder in 1.5, because of the more advanced players).Keep in mind that you can buy the prima strategy guide to help you out, for about 15 bucks. But you need to research and ask lots of questions and play as many maps as you can, don't get stuck on just one...*you stupid bridge and pipeline players...gettin' stuck on just that map.* There needs to be more maps implemented as well.~Hope this review really helped you guys out, download it now, it's vastly improved than any other version that was made avaliable. I'll keep reviewing all these games, until then, see you guys in the servers *don't use gamespy, it's really lame for this game* and I hope to hear from you.

well i guess youve got to give the US military some credit for initiative. Its not often that you see computer games being published by a military institution, just imagine if the Camer Rouge produced a pc game (!) I guess the ol US military must be running low on funds these days, and so need a new source of revenue...
