Brothers in Arms Revealed

The teasing on Gearbox Software's War Story Website has culminated in the announcement of Brothers in Arms, the title of this upcoming World War II game they hope represents "the most realistic and authentic WWII shooter ever." Here's a bit:

Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, today reinforces its strategy to dominate the war games market by announcing a long-term deal with award-winning developer Gearbox Software to publish a new military franchise: Brothers in Arms(tm). With its breakthrough squad-based combat mechanism and unprecedented realism, the first game in the series is poised to revolutionize the WWII genre when it ships on consoles and PC starting Holiday 2004. Created by Texas-based Gearbox Software, Brothers in Arms is the most realistic and authentic WWII shooter ever. While other WWII games have sugarcoated the war experience, Brothers in Arms is based on a true story and will immerse gamers into the gritty, uncensored and emotionally-charged side of war. The game puts you in the shoes of Sgt. Matt Baker, a D-Day paratrooper squad leader, and asks you to lead the squad as you balance their lives with the success of the mission. The true stories and historical events you experience on your perilous journey take you through real battlefields meticulously recreated from aerial reconnaissance images, US Army Signal Corps photos and eye-witness accounts of war-torn Normandy. Players of all skill levels can battle their way through this intense experience because of Brothers in Arms innovative and accessible command and control system."

The first screenshots from the game are in UGO's Brothers in Arms Preview, which includes some first-hand impressions and offers some details not included in the press release.

I never will understand why people complain about the creation of WWII games/movies. Firstly, if you don't want to play/watch it, don't.

Second, and most importantly, do you not realize that the sole reason why WWII themed media is so prevalent is because of the fact that it was one of the, if not the most, important points in global history? I just do not understand the ignorance.
