Amazing visuals... good moral hidden in good backstory

I know my opinion doesn't really matter and video games don't really matter. Only people and life matter.
With that said this game is the best freaking thing I have played---possibly ever.
I know some people prefer to have an RTS that is all about strategy and thinking. I think this game has a lot of room for strategic creativity but that is not why I like it.
I play these games for the detail and I look for realism in scale. That is why I like Tom Clancy's End War.
World In Conflict has even more detail and interaction with the environment. Your effect and mark on the environment is more detailed and lasting in this game. I know a lot of people think it's lame but I really like this game because of the nuke. The detail and life-cycle of the explosion is more true to life than most other games I've seen.
I was also impressed by the story they fit into the cut scenes with the very cool Photoshop paintings.
The story makes you think about the soldiers and reminds you that real people have devoted their lives to being soldiers becasue of what they believe in. It is good to be reminded of this if we are going to play a game like this.
