America’s Army: Proving Grounds is considered the official game of the U.S. Army. By any chance you were looking to train for the army, this is one of those games that might have some idea what your training might end up being. Instead of having mass armies going against one another, it’s designed to have small, confined teams go head to head for an objective. These small units will need to work tactically and strategically at all times. Take control as the leader of your squad or take orders yourself; how you decide to go out with your unit is down to you.
America’s Army is designed to have smaller maps, to ensure that you stay in the action at all times. Despite the size of the maps, you won’t get away with rushing everything; not in the slightest. You’re going to have to take things slow, play smart, and think strategically if you’re going to take the win. Without being too taxing, the controls are nice and simple to pick up. The game is almost designed to play like a military simulator, without the painfully slow learning curve. Each new map you get the chance to play on will be just as – if not more – memorable than the last.
As a squad you should be working as a tactical team, and that’s why a few friends should be brought along. Every squad needs a leader and half of the fun is seeing who can command the team best. Not every game is going to be particularly easy, but every match is going to be a fun experience for all involved, that’s for sure.
Counter Strike: Source was released around the same time as America’s Army Proving Ground. It was more focused on competitive gaming rather than an army simulation though. In Counter Strike: Source players will team up with others players online and jump in to a deadlock battle, which is fought between the terrorists and counter terrorists.
In CS:S Teams will either have to compete in a straight head to head death match. Or they will have defensive and offensive objectives to fulfil to win rounds. At the end of a set number of rounds the winner will be decided based on the team with the most points.
Call of Duty 4 was a huge success on PlayStation and Xbox but many player’s didn’t realise that the game was available on PC. Much like the console versions this game was ported over and also has a huge online community, you can jump online with friends and other players around the world to compete head to head. Although there was cross platform it was never added to this game. Despite the lack of cross platform servers many players asking for this when the game came out.
COD4 plays exactly the same as it’s console counterpart. Although many claim that the servers are better on the PC version due to the available hardware.

Before i say anything about this game it should be made clear that it was created by none other than the US army themselves, so kudos to them for creating a war simulation! America's army proving grounds is a half realistic first person shooter that places you in a variety of maps to take on the opposing team, with maps size being based around medium to close combat. I found the gameplay of America's army proving grounds to be quite engaging, the combat system was, while not perfect, rather well made. A lot of the weapons featured are all modernly used, a feature i adore in modern war games! The community for America's army proving grounds has also released a collection of mods available to download that can greatly increase your playing time, this is a result of such a tight knit and thoughtful community. I personally enjoyed a lot of the game modes featured in the game, each having their own specific objectives and directives needed to complete for each team. I didn't find much issue with the servers, as well as minimal to no sightings of any trolls or hackers was a huge bonus. Another thing that makes me highly recommend America's army proving grounds is the emphasis they have placed on teamwork, removing those players that believe they are god and can take on a whole team. My only real criticism of America's army proving grounds is that the gameplay can become repetitive very fast, as such this is simply one of these games to come back to. If you decide that you'd like to host some of your own servers, then you will want to check out the cheap America's army proving grounds hosting that we offer on this page!
