I threw away a game like that. I didn't buy it. It was PC heavy. Players were flying a F22 bought and paid for by the US taxpayers for the UN. The UN has done nothing in Western Sahara, Congo, Lebanon, Korea, etc. Then UN did not stop Yugoslavia. There are good parts to the UN but the pad parts outweigh 'em.
