Now before you start storming back to a gaming session of Homefront or Call of Duty after reading this headline, let’s look a little deeper on how this Chinese first person shooter came about.

For decades, China has copied many of its military systems from foreign-made originals. It’s a hallmark of a fast-growing power just finding its footing in the high-tech world. The setting is anything but harmonious, but the game itself looks pretty well made. Graphics definitely on par with at least the COD series, and it seems to be more a combined-arms military shooter styled after Operation Flashpoint. Like its American counterpart, introduced as a recruiting tool in 2002, Glorious Mission begins with simulated basic training before deploying the player to an imaginary battleground to duke it out in close-quarters combat. News reports show scores of Chinese troops dutifully gaming away in front of their computer screens. What’s more interesting yet entertaining is the direct translation of the Chinese site QQ attemping to detail the gameplay of “Glorious Mission” which includes features like rich flavor of fighting.
