getting some good reviews across teh interwebz

couple of mates have been playing and enjoying

"This is a great mod for Arma 2: CO. You have to find food and water as well as scrounge around for weapons, ammo, and car parts to repair vehicles. All while looking out for other zombies and other survivors trying to kill you and take your beans."

I also have heard some good things about this.  (I also am heading to Fraswer Island for a week very soon  :awe).

I do have arrowhead, but honestly wasn't that impressed by the whole thing when I first got it.  I would have a crack at this though if you were going to get it.

I'm keen. You can pick Arrowhead up for $20 on steam. I got the original Arma 2 on disk.

Bought Arma 2 just for this, but I've only managed to log in once. I really like the premise, but the controls are a struggle.

Just Google up "arma 2 arrowhead purchase cd key" and you will get a few sites. I don't know if the latest patch allows you to play online without the cd in a drive. Can anyone confirm this?

My sentiments exactly.   To change weapons you need a 50 page manual handy on what to do. 

I did spend a lot of my time running.......and running.........and running......

I am on the island on the 13th July for a week.
