You’d think it would be near impossible to mess up a game about the most formidable and powerful modern military force in history, but somehow the shooter America’s Army: True Soldiers reduces everything cutting edge, dangerous and compelling about being a soldier to a rated-PG play-fomercial.
With developer Red Storm’s pedigree of classic Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six games, this title could’ve been really deep. Imagine the possibilities: crazy physical challenges and hazing missions in boot camp, cussing drill sergeants breathing down your neck and being tempted to try a stealthy "gone AWOL, escape-to-the-stripclub for the night" minigame. You could even become an officer and work your way through a dramatic storyline until you made general. It would be awesome.
