Six Days in Fallujah Reminds Writer of GoW... Euro Release in Question

April 15, 2009 -

The controversy over Konami's Six Days in Fallujah rages on...

Nick Breckon of Shacknews attended Konami's recent Gamer's Night and offers some observations about the much-discussed Iraq War game:

It was apparent that Six Days is not aiming for a very realistic take on modern warfare... considering the extensive marketing on the point of realism, I certainly didn't expect to see soldiers running out into the middle of the street during a firefight, taking a half-dozen bullets in the chest, and then regenerating their health safely behind cover...

 

In fact, from what Konami showed us, Six Days is far closer to Gears of War than America's Army. It has the same Gears D-pad weapon selection, the same style of cover system, and the same action-oriented gameplay...

Meanwhile, Joystiq reports that the flap over Six Days in Fallujah may keep it from being released in Europe:

During Konami's Gamer's Day in Frankfurt last week, unnamed representatives for the publisher told GamePro.de that they were waiting to see how Atomic Games would portray the brutal battle for Fallujah before deciding if the game would see a European release. Representatives also told De Telegraaf that it was unclear what the level of violence would be in the "documentary-style" shooter.

I hope it was worth dissing Metal Gear.

Re: Six Days in Fallujah Reminds Writer of GoW... Euro Release

This is disapointing... I was really hoping for a good realistic game.

Why am I not surprised. Konami had the chance to make the Godfather of video games, ok bad example, how about the Philadelphia, the Ben-Hur, the Lawrence of Arabia. Instead they made the Rocky IV of games.

Here is a idea, you start out controlling the leader of a unit that you need to command.  If the lead dies you start controlling the 2nd in command.  That could allow you to create a more realistic game in terms of amount of damage you can take.

So would this game include tactical Stealth action ala Metal Gear Solid also.  I'm a little curious.

This is sad... done right, this could've been the game industry's "Birth of a Nation"

Re: Six Days in Fallujah Reminds Writer of GoW... Euro ...

Just a bit of clarification: are you looking at "Birth of a Nation" as legitimizing the medium of film as a means of art/story telling or are you looking at it within the context of the racist propaganda that was the core of that particular film?

I think it's obviously the former.

Re: Six Days in Fallujah Reminds Writer of GoW... Euro ...

It's hard to say with "Birth of a Nation" and I'm not inclined to assume on this particular matter since it is a touchy film.

 Damnit, I was hoping so hard that they would actually do this right. But no, they fuck it up as much as they possibly can from what this Gamer's Night viewing sounds like. Sounds like they were pretty much talking out their ass when they saying those things about realism, and making you uncomfortable.

Damn you Konami, damn you to hell. And Atomic Games too.

Re: Six Days in Fallujah Reminds Writer of GoW... Euro Release

Yay regenerating health. I'm suprised it might not get released in ALL of Europe. I guess this is Rule of Rose 2.

Re: Six Days in Fallujah Reminds Writer of GoW... Euro ...

I thought Rule of Rose was only temporarily banned, and in Malaysia?

Rule of Rose is one of my favorite games.

Re: Six Days in Fallujah Reminds Writer of GoW... Euro Release

I hate to be the one breaking it to you, but Germany is only one of several european countries.

We here in Austria play Gears of War quite well, all while laughing at the poor saps northwest of us, where they still hunt witches... err.. gamers.

Re: Six Days in Fallujah Reminds Writer of GoW... Euro ...

Whether 6Days is any good or not, I'm so glad I don't live in Germany. Free speech rocks!

Yeah! WOOO! USA USA USA!

Neo_DrKefkaIt happened around 1030 this morning. I was not blooding because blood was on my hands11/23/2014 - 3:50pm
Andrew EisenThat depends on a lot. Were you bleeding at the time you requested to leave or did you want to leave work to go to the doctor over an incident that happened on a different day that you didn't file an incident report for?11/23/2014 - 3:21pm
Neo_DrKefkaThat would be a major OSHA violation correct?11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
Neo_DrKefkaOff topic but I was at work and went over to the first aid kit to get some eye drops. I look at my hand and noticed blood on my hands. My employers said their is no incident report and they won't send me to see a doctor and that I am abandoning my job.11/23/2014 - 1:54pm

Andrew EisenTrue, but I liked the fact that rather than do a crappy looking version of the PS3/360 version, it went with an art style more suited to the Wii's strengths.11/23/2014 - 12:26am
