is it right for me to be relieved there is a big title that does not try to reinvent the genre, but just seems to 'work'?

If Bit-Tech are invoking Half-Life comparisons, they're either a) very dumb or b) quite sure it'll turn out to be a great game. I'm really hoping for b) :)

A PC-friendly attitude from THQ is also heartening.

It seems it's going to be the title I hoped to be when I first erad about it.

@r3loaded: B please!!

same as all other games, don't get your hopes up and you shouldn't be disappointed.

would love some scripted under-the-radar missions. my favourite missions in MW series was sneaky ones with Price

Whoa, whoa. I'm not saying it's AS GOOD AS Half-Life, just that it uses a similar approach.

I do think it looks really good, but lets not start getting carried away, eh?

Hadn't even heard of it 'til now. Sounds like one to watch.

Sweet. I get to fight in environments I've seen in real life finally. So sick of the f-n desert. And world war two.

Red Dawn the game? Cool!

As for the weapons available, just let me carry my 1911 through the entire game and I'll be happy. Realistic AND effective!

Have to agree it would be a bit of a 'miss-step' to compare a potentially rotten apple to the Half Life series. So I'm looking forward to this, hope not to be disappointed.

That's even if it's just in the approach it takes.

would be interesting if they created a different scenario, like america this time going rogue and invading another country, and you are defending against it :D, that would make it totally different. lol, yeah yeah , I just woke up,lol

Where have u been living? That already is pretty much every other game out there.
Sure , sure, they say they are defending against someone, but are you really when yiou are taking over other counrty.

On the other hand I am really looking forward to some triple A game that does not include US in any way.

That was what I was thinking. 'Red Dawn', complete with pick-up driving, hunting rifle packing (at least initially) 'Wolverines' was filmed at the very hieght of the Reagan era Cold War, and was partly funded by the CIA.

Anyway, looks pretty good. Can you make IEDs in the game? How far do they take this 'insurgent' premise? After all, one man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter.

Sounds excellent.

To me it sounds very much like the single player missions in BF2:BC which I am enjoying immensly.
Kenny_McCormick 20th August 2010, 10:29 Quote
Red Dawn game is World in Conflict, that's for sure.
BRAWL 20th August 2010, 12:41 Quote
This has sparked my attention, actually looks good. 'bout time the USA got occupied and invaded in a game instead of the US invading unknownistan!

Think I'll be buying this
pimonserry 20th August 2010, 15:23 Quote
Could this be the next Half-Life?

I wasn't interested before, now this sounds good.

Resistance 2 with Koreans instead of the Chimeara. Sounds good to me.
Apoptosis 20th August 2010, 17:38 Quote
I wish for once they'd make a game where Americans are the baddies instead of it always being the Koreans, Arabs and whatnot.
Mr_Armageddon 20th August 2010, 22:13 Quote
The comparison to "Red Dawn" is correct and makes me very happy. WOLVERINES!!!!

John Milius, the man who wrote the story for Homefront, also wrote the screenplay for "Red Dawn".
Growing up in the Mountains of Colorado makes this an extra special treat for me :) Totally buying this.

I have to admit I initially dismissed this game due to the wild implausibility of the storyline, but if they can make a good game out of it then go for it. I mean Half-Life isn't really plausible either.

Or is it? *spooky music*
Gunsmith 22nd August 2010, 20:24 Quote
tbh shitting into a bucket is more fun then cod these days however any game that uses half life as an inspiration for either gameplay or story telling gets a vote in my book.

i shall be watching.
