Kuma War - Any other players here?

The Good news is , KumaWar is now free!

For those that don't know,

Kuma\War is a free tactical first and third-person shooter created by the new American company Kuma Reality Games. Kuma\War is an episodic game that re-creates real-world conflicts in video game format using information culled from news accounts, military experts, Department of Defense records and original research. Episodes consist of a playable mission, extensive background text, and often include interviews with military experts, soldiers and other actual participants in the events described.

First released in 2004, Kuma\War currently hosts over 80 missions . While most episodes are drawn from the war in Iraq, Kuma has re-created events from Afghanistan, Mexico, Sierra Leone, South Korea, Iran and Vietnam.

Kuma\War has become the subject of much controversy, taking criticism for supporting the war, its speed of release – many of its missions recreate battles which are just days or weeks old – its close relationship with the military, and for its coverage of a number of divisive issues including the potential for military action in Iran and a positive depiction of John Kerry’s military service.

The first mission of the game (named "Uday and Qusay's Last Stand") is the battle in which the two sons of Saddam Hussein, Uday and Qusay, are killed. The attack is described as "a turning point in Operation Iraqi Freedom" and "a milestone in the War on Terror".[1] Other significant episodes include “John Kerry’s Silver Star”, “Fallujah: Operation al Fajr”, and “Osama 2001: Tora Bora.”

Unlike other games created with the assistance of the US Military, such as America's Army and SOCOM II: U.S. Navy SEALs, the main distinguishing feature in Kuma\War is its extensive background information for each mission, which includes satellite photos, original articles and a multimedia library.

Kuma is notable for its current free ad-supported business model, its Iraqi fan base[1] and continuous updates, delivering new episodes each month. Every episode from the collection of Kuma\War missions can be downloaded for free and played as a single-player first-person shooter. Popular past missions can also be played as a free online multiplayer experience.


Just download the free client and the patch, and away you go.
Just found this thread!

Yeah, love it, despite the annoying tendency of the other squad members to stop still in the middle of a dash for cover and get killed...

I like the way the Assault on Iran game is by far the easiest... :roll:
It's the fighting with the 2 different versions of the game that irritate me. To my mind version 1 was far superior, but a lack of key guides mean I have to crash out, rather than hit the 'ESC' key to reboot the game.

Though some set pieces are excellent, and the scenery and atmosphere are pretty good.

Though the game does suffer from "unbeatable line-of-sight sniper" who seems to be able to shoot through f**king walls.

Overall, pretty good, but needs more in depth manuals and FAQ's.
