I hope they're right (Gaming)

I mean, it is based on what is actually being shown and said about the game (the trailer and the press release about the game). I know developers often have no control over those things, and it would be no surprise to me that the game would be marketed like it’s a new Call of Duty even if it’s nothing like that. I am reserving judgment until we actually see more, but what we’ve seen so far is thoroughly uninteresting and deeply disappointing. I have zero interest in engaging with anything trying to justify the Iraq war, or explain away war crimes as “you just weren’t there,” and that looks like what this game is doing based on what we’ve actually seen so far.

Unless they come out and say "Actually, you play the entire game as a little kid who has to escape the city during the conflict", then my guess is the game will turn out exactly how you think.
