For anyone who wants to know the state of the game, go read the official game forums. That will give you a better idea of where the game stands than your local shopkeeper.
Hey, this game isn't for everyone. If your looking for a game with only twitch and no wit, go get something else. But if you want to 'roleplay' a soldiers life but don't like real bullets coming at you, WWIIOL may be your cup of tea. NO game has ever made me feel like I'm in a life or death situation like this.
If you deside to purchase it, make sure you join an existing outfit after a week or so because 'Fight Alone, Die Alone' is the way it is.
