* Army Screwed by Pandemic?

The St. Petersburg Times have word that the US Army isn't happy with Pandemic Studios over Full Spectrum Warrior - apparently, the version they ordered for troop training and simulations isn't well done, though Pandemic have made a mint from the commercial side.

The designers "pretty much disregarded the Army's concerns," said Paquette. "They wanted to make money on the commercial version."

Lt. Col. Jim Riley, chief of tactics at the Army's infantry school at Fort Benning, Ga., says his school rarely uses the game because it doesn't offer a realistic simulation of urban combat.

"It's not accurate enough," he said.
