What are your thoughts and opinion with 6 Days in Fallujah?

Since both games share the mood and setting with the difference of this being fictional, i want to know what do you think about that cancelled game and if it was part of inspiration for sandstorm

I think that NWI's decision to keep Sandstorm separate from any and all real-life faction(s) or political group(s) is a smart move.

I've been running around a few story ideas myself. Nothing special, but I often run into the counter-productive nature of trying to make believable and emphasizable characters in a war zone. All of my story ideas keep winding up being sad, demoralizing, or mildly horrific.
