I enjoy a healthy dose of military shooters in this gaming day and age. It's hard not to when every FPS maker is figuring out how to get in on the runaway success that Call of Duty enjoys these days. I'm a fan, I do enjoy shooting thousands of digital insurgents and I'm the rare exception that actually chooses the single player campaign when I first start up a new game.
I'm like others, though, who believe a war game can tell an intellectual story without being bogged down by commanders throwing around four-letter words and telling me who to kill next. I was expecting a Call of Duty game to attempt this feat, not the newest in a franchise that has traditionally been a poor man's military shooter at best.
