    Next you'll be saying WW2 games should take a "balanced" approach instead of displaying nazis as the heroes they were.

    I tend to take "balanced" approaches with a kilo of salt. They either mean "I'm going to make propaganda all the same and if you don't drink the kool-aid you're an extremist" or "I don't have the faintest idea what's going on here, so I'm going to pretend I do and give this chump with a t-shirt shop in Coventry the same weight as the legitimate government of a country, wink, wink". And by that I mean there's only one stance but I'm giving it two appearances so that it looks "balanced".

    The "I have no idea" would be that ass-faced faggot from Bellingcat, who says that a photo was doctored because there were compression artifacts in it (hint: they were analyzing a JPEG image). But I digress.

    Fuck balance.

    I personally loathe WW2 games not only for the propaganda involved (aka Americans are the super-heroes) but because, well, the setting gets boring after the first 200 times

    Wargamer.com has a review for Syrian Warfare:

    The Strategy Gamer neither approves of the theme, nor of the game.

    Apparently he's never met any old people and therefore they don't need any respect. Kamikazes are all fun and games, but not suicide bombers. It's an idiotic argument no matter how anyone tries to make it. It's like saying that during WWII they shouldn't have made any war movies because it was still "too soon".

    I'd like to see something that was made from the ground up with the idea that it's going to be about the war in Syria. This sounds like it just took an engine from an old game and slapped a desert skin on it. Afghanistan '11 does a good job of actually making a game about that particular war, so I'm afraid I would be disappointed by anything less.

    That would be because they used the engine of a not-so-old game ("Warfare" IIRC) and made modifications for this one. The older game was also set in the Middle East (Iraq, as the US), but the assets in Syrian Warfare are new.

    As for those reviews, the first reviewer at least comes clean and says that even if he doesn't agree with the setting the game's not bad. The second one comes across as a bloody fairy with that "too soon" bullshit that takes the foreground in his excuse for a review (in which he only played the first mission, which isn't as hard as he makes it out to be); he probably should write reviews for The Grauniad or replace John Walker at RPS when he's on vacation. What a massive faggot.

    And Afghanistan '11 feels more like a COIN boardgame to me. Not that it's a bad thing, but it's not a tactics game.

    If I was "the people" and one side brought us murdering drones while another had "Ak47 for everyone!" I would love GLA more as well!

    Well Commissar owns SPMBT and he never had any issue with playing it but he is from Fallout and Dagerfall era when games were fun and kept away from both politics and SJW puritanism; this whole drama about suicide bombers is just smoke scream for being shocked after confronting with something so different than usual good US Gis/Israelis fighting evul Ruskies/Iranians/Hezbollah. But to be honest 7 missions in campaign only, lack of skirmishes and option to play as Kurd YPG Comrades/Hezbollah/Iranians or one of those few remaining moderate rebel factions is off putting... Heck in the game you should be able to play Nusra/Isis head chopper its just game for allah sake after all. Not to mention its not turn based hex game. I salute you Comrades but wont spend 20 shekels only to make political statement cause I do loathe RTWP games.
