The guys from ShackNews had a chance to take a look at the World in Conflict video game, here's a snip from their eport:
Though a newly created property, World in Conflict is very much an iteration on Massive's well-regarded Ground Control series of real-time strategy games. It retains successful elements of that series, such as its up-close presentation, a lack of base-building, the low-angled camera, and the focus on tactics-level gameplay. Jénsen was sure to state that fans of the series will feel right at home.

While Ground Control was set in a sci-fi universe fairly typical for the RTS genre, World in Conflict travels a path that is not nearly as well-charted for the genre: Cold War alternate history. In an interview conducted last week, Jansén described some of the more fundamental changes made for World in Conflict.
