I couldn't really get into it. The pace feels so slow from running and the fact that once you die, you'll probably have to wait another like five minutes before the round clock finishes. It also doesn't help that the running is more like a brisk walk. The nature of it is a bit more realistic gameplay but its geared way towards kids too much to make it a somewhat of an interesting game. If somebody wanted to, they can block snipers, (the very little amounts of) blood, I believe swearing, and even make it so only servers that play on the MILES targeting system (a laser tag kind of thing) are visible. Also, you'll notice that no matter what, the team you are on is shown as the US army while the opposing team is dressed as terrorists. There aren't any set teams, just your always the US. It also makes it weird because even though everybody is technically the US army, the opposing team not only has 'terrorist' clothes, they also have ak's which can go full auto unlike the M16, which can only go up to a burst. So somehow, that is all mixed into the gameplay and its ridiculous.
Honestly in my opinion, America's Army is a mix between Counter-Strike (round based spawning) and Battlefield 2 (larger amounts of people fighting, but nowhere near 64) and both games are better than America's Army.
In this case, Red Orchestra is even more realistic and an even better game.
Still, America's Army is alright for being free, but there are much better games that's servers and options are less child oriented because I like the battles and gore and such.
