If it stuck with the time period weapon wise, it would be awesome, but they throw in the futuristic weapons crap, so thats turned me off right from the start. Thanks, but NO thanks.

Yeah i thought same thing. Why there always have to be some futuristic guns. Who wants to shoot from machinegun some poor roman soldiers with spears.

But i saw also quite potential to make ww1 mod of that game! The graphics and physics looks great! And the ww1 scenery was quite great looking!

I downloaded the demo and played it a few times. It ran quite well on my 2 year old system. The demo includes a set piece battle at Little Big Horn with Custer - a no win situation. Then you get grabbed off the field and thrust into a futuristic lab where you're given a mission to save a particular soldier at the the Battle of Antietem/Sharpsburg during the American Civil War. It's for the most part a typical shooter, so long as you keep the period weapons. It doesn't seem very kosher to be blasing away with a submachine gun as the Confederates charge through the cornfield. The only think I would have liked is a "censor" button for the language in case I'm playing it when the kids are in the house. Let 'em learn those words from their classmates just like I did.

 

I probably wouldn't buy it at full price, but maybe in a year when it makes it to the bargain bin for under $20 US I'll take another look at it.
