First impressions- BIA: Heck's Road of Fun Times!

Guts and glory! Screw you Patton!
I picked up the latest chapter of Bakers Company adventure, which I get the impression isn't supposed to be fun- in the sense that I see atrocities all around me, the main character and some of his friends aren't completely stable and I blew up a sheep with a grenade, yet...
The game wants me to ponder the harshness of war, the senseless slaughter and the waste of the greatest generation on a failed military operation.
It's really jarring. One minute, flashback to the first game- the men Baker thinks he failed are dying all around him. The next moment... look how awesome this close-up, slow-mo explosion is! That's his arm, flying away from him! His guts are very well rendered.
Still, it's a tactical game and I love those- so I cut it some slack for being very good at making me think my way around the battlefield. Also, it makes me realize that I would have sucked in any military career possible.
Maybe a review, when I'm done with it. Back to teh slaughtering.
