Is there an option to drop a few nuke warheads? Turn the place into a glass parking lot?

Well that's stupid, it's far too limited to be of any significant value. I wanted to let Iran do whatever the hell it wants to but the game assumes you are committed into some attack right from the start. Dumb !

I'd like to see some operational/tactical level sim about a possible NATO vs Iran conflict. Like a conversion of WITP, where you have the entire Western forces at your disposal, or another spin-off of Eagle Dynamics DCS series.

Unfortunately game developers shy away from depicting modern conflicts.

This is a mega conspiracy

So far I managed to stay away from this Facebook thing from hell. And I planned to follow this sound strategy until the Judgement Day...

Now I'd like to have some fun but to play I have to register via facebook! What the...?

Technically they are in the Middle Ages (if that's what you tried to say, Parusski). Stone Age: Paleolithic. The agriculture, writing, they already know all that stuff

This reminds me a lot of an amazing Vietnam war simulation called Escalation. Except this new one has half the depth, length, and choices. The Escalation game was made for schools. It was really a gem.

Yes, this is one very narrow bit of propogada, not a game at all.
