Personally I've never been a CS guy. Shooters with middling realism tend to annoy me for various reasons. But I concede that I'm picky because I also don't really like the realism at the expense of gameplay of ARMA.
Well COD isn't all that far off from CS. Honestly give me America's Army 2 in its prime over any other FPS game that's come out since. That game had the perfect balance between arcade and realism. Nothing comes close. It's a shame that AA3 was such a flop.

I Don't disagree. Huge AA fan. AA3 wasn't a bad game, but it had some issues that could have been corrected. Unfortunately it never had the player counts to be worth it. Also it launched with too few maps, that might have been the biggest issue.
Looks like Steam wants to fight against Amazon. Midweek Madness on Darkness 2 - $17 as well. I think I'll still wait. It'll probably be cheaper during the Christmas sale a month and a half away and I know I won't have time to play it by then anyway.
Not a good price . I picked up Darkness II and Spec Ops: The Line for $6 each from Gamefly (steam activated) at the beginning of October...just beat Spec Ops. Have to play Darkness II whenever I have more time.
Everything is going fine, its tough but fair. About 2/3rd of the way in BAM, they just go insane on the difficulty curve. Even on medium I can't kill enemy soldiers with 2 shotgun shells to the head, when it would only take 1 previously. When you open doors there are 2-3 guys there and they can shoot you before the door is all the way open so you can't even see them. You have to pop out of the water sometimes and your guns don't work for a second or two while they can blast you with shotguns freely.
One of the worst difficulty spikes I can think of. Not really worth continuing when you have to play a room 10 times only to move on to the next room and do it again, 10 times.
