Think back when you played your first WW2 didn't it seem so much funner since you were fighting for something you believed in. A story line puts you into the game so much more then anything else. MY main thing to back this thing up is to all the people who played Freedom Fighters. I got so much more into the game because of the awesome storyline. Well i guess you could say its not the most realistic storyline, but its believable. Remember when you invade the Tv studios and Scott gives that kick ass speech to all of the people of new york. Right after that moment i liked the game even more. Now a days good fps or tps lacked because of storyline. My main example is Gears of War. I never really got into the game because the storyline was so retarded.
