Order of War on September 22

Square Enix Announces Order of War will ship in North America on September 22, offering real-time strategy gameplay set during World War II. A playable demo for the game was released earlier this month, and here's a bit on the game:

As Square Enix's first foray into the hugely popular genre of historical real-time strategy, ORDER OF WAR takes strategy games to new heights and features massive-scale battles brought to life with unprecedented cinematic intensity. Players will take command of an entire army including ground troops, artillery, tank divisions and aircraft in all-out strategic assaults. The single-player mode can be played out in two campaigns - American forces versus German forces in occupied France and German forces versus Soviet forces in Poland and versus American forces in France. Missions will be based on key historic events and operations from 1944.

The problem with the Korean War is that people know jack-all about it. Honestly, I don't think it was *ever* mentioned in the history courses at my Highschool, back in the 90s, seems like there's very few documentaries about it on the History or Military channels, I don't think there's been a decent movie about it, ever, etc.

It's a fascinating subject (As most wars are, to me), but pretty much everything I know about it has been independent study, in libraries and on the internet and the like. It seems like a forgotten conflict, to most of the nation.

So a Korean War game would appeal to the hardcore war game grognards, if you made it "realistic" enough, but if you were trying for more mass-market appeal, I think it might be lacking.
