Six Days in Fallujah Revealed

Konami announces Six Days in Fallujah, based on 2004 Iraq battle on the Los Angeles Times profiles an upcoming third-person survival/horror shooter set in Iraq being developed by recently revived developer Atomic Games. There is also an article on the game in the Wikipedia offering details from the May 2009 issue of Gamepro magazine, quoting Atomic's Peter Tamte describing this as "a meticulously recreated in-game version of Fallujah, complete with real life Marines lending their names and likenesses, as well as recreations of specific events from the battle. It's almost like time travel. You're experiencing the events as they really happened." The survival/horror theme is ascribed to the game based on the atmosphere created by clearing a city house-by-house, rather than the presence of zombies or their ilk, and word is the game will also include destructible environments. The game is in development for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, but no release date is offered.

You need to log in to see the vid (proof of age or something).

Notice any similarities (especially in the voice dialogs)in the video to a level in the game? I found the similarities disturbing (and tasteless). Sure, it's realistic I suppose, but making it parallel so closely actual events seemed tasteless to me.

I don't find it tasteless at all. In CoD4 it was a shooting gallery. In reality, it's probably very much hurry-up-and-wait.

I guess I'm just less sensitive than others. I don't see what the big fuss is over an AC-130 gunship "simulation" when we've been shooting each other for years in countless other games.
