MSXbox: How difficult is it creating a game out of an event so huge and tragic as WWII? Whats to stop gamers from forgetting about the importance of WWII when playing a game like this?Be sure to head over and read their interview right here. And when youre done... be sure to come back and check out our interview with Lars Gustavsson the Producer for Battlefield 1942.
Legler: It should be mentioned that we have the deepest respect for the suffering and pain that WWII caused people all over the world. As long as people touch base with things that are connected to that horrible moment in man history, they will not forget what it really was all about.
Our intention is to capture the spirit that you can find in movies like "Saving Private Ryan", "A Bridge Too Far" or "Tora Tora Tora" that all take place during WWII. Here its up to you to be the hero of the day whether you dive through the skies in your fighter with raging machineguns, dogfighting, to keep the enemies from your Aircraft Carrier, or be a part of a huge tank battle in the merciless heat of the North African sun trying to hold the last line of defense!
It is what Hollywood has done all since the war - WWII as action packed heroic entertainment!
