    Could be a fun game, but then the AI needs to be damn good and everything arround shooting footage should also be worked out real good. For Example u should have the posibilitys to write/film about the war and spread Taliban like media so Countries like the US will react on it with more ore less bloody violence. I think if they want to sell this game to a large audiance they should make different game modes, so u can choose if u want to pick up the camera or a assault rifle.

    I too love games that are outside-the-box. Anymore remember MAD-TV from the early 1990s ? Or Simcity ? In the era of space invaders, platformers and beat-them-up-while-moving-to-the-right games they were extremely refreshing to play. Simcity continued on to even greater glory while MAD-TV faded into oblivion.

    Today we've got a bunch of FPS and RPG games while quality strategies, flight simulators etc. are almost gone.

    What's the point of shooting fictional, pre-designed scenes? It makes no sense.

    Hmm so this is like the Modern Warfare games except on this one you get to record what's hapenning istead of having to go through 60% of the game just watching things hapen... nice concept, surely a step forward.

    In Warco 2, you will guide a vacuum cleaner tidying up all the mess, and a shredder to clean up documentary evidence.

    Actually, Warco could be made more interesting by including a propaganda element to it. Organise and create media stunts and conspiracy plus false reporting etc.

    Give me Beyond Good and Evil 2 instead.

    But I think this could be interesting if done right.

    If done right. Dynamic is the key here. Maybe so that if you stand in certain spots, the troops have to save your ass because you stepped in a trap of the opposing forces, or you distract the soldiers and they get, well, distracted. Something like that, so you don't just snap pics, but you also have a key role in the whole situation, if you will. If you weren't at spot A at time B doing C, then D wouldn't have happened etc.

    But I guess something like that will be very hard to actually pull off halfway decent.

    A risky concept. I'll be interested to see how this pans out but I doubt I'll be shocked or impressed.

    But wouldn't you be interested in the vacuuming in the sequel? lol ;) (see post 33)

    I posted this because I figured it made interesting news for its uniqueness, but the game's premise seems a bit on the boring side to me.

    So ... it is a RPG.

    They are calling it a 'FPS without a gun' for marketing purposes.
    Pokemon Snap + CoD = profit!

    Anything + CoD = Profit.

    (at least that's what all the big game publishers keep pushing)

    Isn't that RT news? I have heard they are just propaganda.

    Some say the BBC news is now just reporting "party line". That's the problem with government funded media... the threat of budget cuts makes them "play ball" with the govt agenda. I don't know who biased RT is, but looking at a lot of their other news, it seems pretty fair as a valid viewpoint. IMO the truth lies somewhere in between.

    I actually think there was an RTS game with this element.
