Sounds like a really stupid game...I'll give it a miss...,
Since I haven't played this game and don't intend to, I wont score the game here.

These are the reasons that I think that the game is stupid or troubling:

1) The story concerns North Korea invading the U.S. Righto. So it's science fiction or fantasy then. North Korea is a tin pot little nation that wouldn't be so stupid as to do that. The scenario seems unintentionally funny. Maybe they could just go the whole hog...intentionally funny. For example...have the U.S. invaded by one of: New Zealand, Micronesia, The Small Magnetic Islands or...Canada. There'd be a ready made sequel...Micronesia could call in Macronesia to help them defeat the Americans; The Small Magnetic Islands could call in The Large Magnetic Islands, etc.etc.etc.

2) The whole point of shooters is to 'triumph against the odds'...to defeat a superior force with superior weapons. And how does North Korea fit the bill?

3) Conceptually the game is like those agit-prop movies of Sylvester Stallone...be it in "Rocky IV" or "Rambo II"...just an excuse for a masturbatory, jingoistic American fantasy. I boycotted Stallone movies for a while after seeing the demonised Russian fighter in "Rocky IV" and gave "Rambo II" a miss for engaging in that kind of 'alternative' wish fulfilment over the Vietnam War...where, in their Hollywood dreams America could finally get one over the Vietnamese.

4) If you really wanted a 'triumph against all odds' game, surely playing as the Vietnamese against the U.S. during the Vietnam War would be the PERFECT scenario, right? But America doesn't make games like that...there must be some sort of 'negative' effect in having America as the enemy, right? So...it has propaganda value then? You'd think so, wouldn't you? The U.S. military is involved in making war themed video games as a recruitment tool for those poor young adults who get to fight for the rich, white man. Now, since North Korea is never likely to invade the U.S...this game would great agit-prop for the U.S. military to recruit poor young adults to...invade North Korea one day, right? I mean, the game would have primed them for this...demonising North Korea...all those unspeakable acts they did to Americans in...this video game.

This game just sounds like a total onanistic American wet-dream.

I'm giving it a miss.
