I definitely would like to recommend this man for the video review emblem, my good buddy EightbitWarrior. Prior to this great video review he did of Chrono Trigger, he made another stellar video review for BioShock.
I think this will be one of the more beneificial novels based on games, as the story in GOW wasn't really fleshed out at all. It's due in August too, will be nice to read during the end of the summer. Hopefully the backstory will do justice to the game universe.
The thing with World In Conflict is, it's easier to get into the action, you don't have to start a battle by gathering resources. Additionally, the online works really well, graphics are good looking even on settings like medium, and the single-player campaign is really fun, with a nice story. It's definitely a must buy.
