anyone know a game that is historically accurate? with all the historatical notes while still a rts or fps? WWII will be needed and the korea war as well, best if its from both points of view... must be non fiction (history class)

WWI really wasn't that exciting of a war to play.. I mean, no one wants to sit in trenches all day tossing mustard gas at each other.

Do a google search or hit gamestop.com or another site that sells games.

Can't think of a single game off the top of my head.

As riser said WWI is kind of a crap time to base a game in. They barely had planes or tanks or machine guns for that matter. As for an RTS based on WWI, the thought makes me laugh!!! How boring would that be.

Now as for WWII there are plenty of games that try to be aunthentic but why are you looking for games specifically? If you're attempting to do some school/college work on these time periods why don't you stick to a history book.

Your wanting your teacher to use games as a teaching aid.

It's not going to happen.

No game will ever give you enough information.

Forget about what your trying to do and stick to using books.

In addition, most games allow you to alter the outcome of key battles... turning the tide in directions that definately would not be historically accurate. You're never going to get historically accurate in a fully interactive game environment.
