I think a lot of people are getting themselves confused with exactly what Greg Goodrich has said about the game. As he said himself he never said it was realistic he said it was authentic, this including the warfighters from each country, the various weapons and kits, the locations, and the fact that all missions in the game are based on real missions. Just because you don't die in one bullet doesn't at all make it a bad game, otherwise we better start complaining about all the other shooters on the market. And the point that Tom was makign is that there should be no checkpoints and if you die and get to do it again then that is unrealistic, so really for him he is stating that once he is dead he can't play the game again, as it would be unrealistic to get a second opportunity surely? But then he doesn't actually mean this when questioned about it so in my opinion the point he is making has many faults to it and he can't describe exactly what he thinks. Well done for Greg and Danger Close for amking what looks to be a great game and I can't wait to play it, and I will try out the various difficult settings as it is an option.
