Apple Inexplicably Rejects WWII Wargame For Featuring German And Russian ‘Enemies’


  • Guy

    They WEREN’T enemies. They were just having REALLY intense territorial disagreements along with internal spirited debates over proper religious beliefs. The fact that millions died because of it was an unfortunate unforeseen side effect. Yeah…let’s go with that.

  • Nico Morgan

    Perhaps it was because you wouldn’t be fighting against both countries as they were on different sides. Then again, who ever based these things on facts anyway?

    WWII was a war with a clear good side (allies) and evil side (Hitler/Nazi Germany & Allies). Most wars are not so clear cut. Me thinks the apple reviewer needs to learn some history.

      “WWII was a war with a clear good side (allies) and evil side (Hitler/Nazi Germany & Allies)”
      You need a history lesson about WWII. Russians (Soviets) began as allies of the Nazis and then changed side to “good” and murdered Poles, their allies. The Allies (England, USA, France etc) fought on the side of the Soviets only to defeat the Nazis. They chose the lesser of two evils… After the war, they were enemies (the Cold War).
      “The good side” of Russia we are seeing now in Ukraine.

      Still, I agree it’s not up to Apple to judge, regardless of how clear it seems to us.

      They can’t go “ok, this war was so clear, we’ll let it pass”, because then say, NATO vs Taliban game, if they don’t want to make a similar decision here, that in itself is a statement that wouldn’t be good for Apple

      So I support Apple in not allowing any real single entitiy as evil enemy. except maybe some fictional androids hehe

      David, you may want to review Stalin’s historical record. As someone of Ukrainian heritage, I would note that track record includes starvation of his own people before the war, the Purges, a refusal to even believe war with Germany had started, and a final death toll at his hands that is believed to be quite possibly higher than that incurred at the hands of Hitler.

    Apple is turning into an anti-war, anti-military, left wing liberal operation . . . and a significant pain in the butt.

      Oh god, this isn’t anything to do with liberal or conservative.

      And as for being anti war… you’re pro war? I guess you think it’s ok to convince teenagers to go fight for the old men in power… personally, I’d rather send every damn politician over there instead.
