No reason to call the game a letdown because of that...

Hey, at least you can play it. Mine still says unreleased for some reason! :(

They have big problems up-on release again, it wont unlock on steam for allot of us, i would give it a day or so.

It's amazing game once you get it working i've been told by friends, the most realistic shooter ever, ( aa2 was the most realistic before it though! ) but getting it to work currently is a different matter. It's a free game and the amount of people trying to download it, unlock it at once has far exeeded what the US Army thought, so there has been a massive overload.

you have to restart Steam for it to realise the game has been released.

I have restarted twice.

What has been suggested is to change the download location in the options, to give you another "slot", if you will.

if you want it to work properly then download it through AA Deploy from Big Download, apparently without Steam it works absolutely fine

You can run it witout steam.

There a few problems upon release, training bug and online problems, complete overload.

Here's statement from US Army developers:

America's Army 3 is a HUGE success
Too huge it seems. We are overwhelmed by the amount of downloads and people hitting the game. Right now the database backend is struggling to keep up. People are seeing lag in the singleplayer and multiplayer at the moment. Please bear with us. We are actively trying to solve the problem so you can play the game as it is intended to be played.

Update to latest DirectX. Also, in Steam, click "My Games", right click on "America's Army 3", select "Properties", "Set launch options", type in "-dxlevel 10 and press "OK".
