I know a couple people that were stationed not too far away from Fallujah, and they were expecting this game. I was too, I'm not sick of WW2 games, but they shouldn't make any more, for fear of me growing tired of Call of Duty 1 and 2. The thing here is people think realism is boring...everyone wants to be John Rambo or John McClane. (note how most of these are John somebody...John Doe? Average Joe? different, not average) Nobody can be that though so they want Halo games, or Half Life. The genius puzzles his way across a wasteland to stop the evil corporation, or the cyborg takes down a religion. In all honesty here, games like Rainbow Six have dumbed down over the years, because people didn't like it. I beat Lockdown running and gunning, no tactical movement, same for GRAW and Ghost Recon 2. The first one you almost had to map out strategies to have all members survive. Americas Army didn't take with theounger people because it was difficult. Can't tank an m24 round and run away, (like in Call of Duty 4) rather, they die if that shot hits them.

I don't like Microsoft, I associate with it.

I hope they find the publisher soon. As long as it not EA.

The video previews look awsome. I don't care how strategy is realistic, the graphic is very nice.

People aren't automatically making light of a subject just by way of including it in a video game; that's what the people angry over this game don't seem to get.  The fact that there is so much interest around playing the roll of a soldier in so many video games is because people ADMIRE the armed forces and what they do.

Maybe Rockstar? That might work.

My Dad actually spent some time in fallujah the last time he deployed to iraq. I was curious as to what his take on this game was gonna be. oh well, guess I'll just have to wait untill they find a publisher.
