...  at least for games. I admits I've  never bothered much with literature concerning this topic.

For sure, the spotlights are deserved for "World in Conflict - complete edition" (including both the basic game plus the "Soviet Assault expansion").


It's a PC strategy war game. Featuring an enjoyable and realistic gaming (focused lots on commanding tactic units of infantry and tech, calling aerial reinforcement and aerial/artillery support).

What's interesting, is that the whole campaign feature a number of unique elements:

1) WW3 start in 1989, so it involve a number of military weapons and vehicles still not much different from the modern ones.

2) War is mostly conventional, and it gives some interesting plot-elements for the limited use of nuclear weapons.

3) The game features a good amount of supporting characters, both American and Soviet. Lots of efforts are given to give a mix of realism and balanced characters, with twists and events occurring during the plot. Both sides have an "extremist" character but not unexplained: while the american tank-commander is moved by a delusional step-father and his desire to succeed cause only mistakes, the soviet one is driven by desire for revenge (both these explains happens in the middle of the game).

It's particularly important how the producers shaped the other Soviet officers, to give an human and realistic point of view: including the top soviet officer (who is a very "father-like" character), or the KGB officer, who despite being a bit cunning and reserved ... he's NOT the villain-one of the Soviet group.
The American top-officer is a bit less charming (a standard grumpy baddass), while the additional supporting officer is less characterized.

And now some SPOILER:
While the game starts from the sudden Soviet assault on the western American coast (especially Seattle), the war actually begun earlier in Europe. But it is also particularly interesting to learn how actually the NATO/American forces invaded Soviet Union BEFORE the Soviets invaded America ! (with a raid in Murmansk that was repelled).
Moreover it's also extremely interesting how the whole affair of the American guerrilla vs Soviet invasors was described: with a more honorable behavior from the soviets (including the top officer preventing the extremist one to commit a revenge killing.
