So I've determined I will get the first game since my computer can't handle the full version of Arma 2. So I was wondering, what does Arma 2 have that the original doesn't. I'm mainly curious about how good the ai is, and what squad commanding is like. Also does the game have combat patrols? They are my favorite part of Arma 2 so far.

Edit:I downloaded the demo and it seems good, so I ask: Does it have the same graphics as the full game? I know Arma 2 Free has reduced graphics so I don't want to buy the first one unless I'm positive I can run it.

Also, wasn't sure if this belongs in Arma 1 or 2 forum so my bad if it should be in 1.

The first game?
First game in the series is OFP - Operation Flashpoint, which released in 2001, then in 2006 came Arma1, then in 2008 I believe Arma2.

arma 1 runs better than arma 2 on a low end pc not saying perfect but better
arma 1 is in my opinion a mid point between operation flashpoint and arma 2 or flashpoint with better graphics
the animations is not the best but im sure theres mods for that the game itself is quite good and there are still servers for it many will say that arma is better in some ways i don't know if there is a demo for it but if there is i would check it out

# Günter Severloh : The first game?

I know, but it's the first game with Arma in the title until OFP was renamed.

Added 5 minutes later:

Since I'm asking questions, I have one more. Can I have enemies randomly spawn from one of several spawn points like in Arma 2? Or will missions always be the same? I always hate memorizing enemy locations on accident.

the spawn almost the same way as arma 2 unless the mission is build up to do otherwise
but like arma 2 theres no prescripted missions like you know from other games such as the cod series

ArmA 1 does have more and better mods/addons that I wished ArmA 2 had.
