I was digging through my PSone games and I noticed Nuclear Strike was made in 1997 as well. The Strike games (starting with Desert Strike) let you fly around in an apache helicopter going on missions and blowing the living crud outta Iraq. This series came out of some short-lived hostilities between US and Iraq where US pulled out. I don't recall who was president in those days. But in beating the first game you were congratulated by Clinton. I don't mean to make this a political discussion. The game series had its starts in 16 bit and there were two sequels which were both on SNES and Genesis. Sega Saturn got Soviet Strike before EA pulled the plug on that system. PSone recieved that plus the sequel Nuclear Strike. It has some FMV segments here and there. Check it out on youtube. Now, when I think EA I rarely think "RPG publisher." True they bought some RPG studios here and there but they are primarily the studio these days that and back then were heavily into sports games. Games that came out seasonally. I think I bought Madden '97 for Sega Saturn for a quarter back in the day.
