    The Brass are being stupid in the way they are reacting to this game. Every shooter based on any kind of real world conflict has had the player possibly playing as Nazi troops/Japanese troops/Vietnamese NVA/Vietcong/Modern Terrorist Operatives. This game is not applying that any differently other than using a real enemy force linked to the Terrorist Group Al Qaeda. The enemy is still played the same way, mostly Team Deathmatch, Capture-the-Flag, or Demolition. The Taliban isn't even a true International Terrorist Organization [more like a rebel group working with a Terrorist Group (Al Qaeda)]. Yes, the Taliban terrorizes it's own people and commits human rights abuses, but so did our government under the last administration (The stories just never made it to the news reports). I'm saying all of this as a USAF AD Veteran (served in the early 1990's).

    That's ironic because in MW2 we can walk through the air-terminal of a crowded Russian airport and waste all poor civilians and no one cares...
    You can be an american soldier and kill vietnamese soldiers in Black ops and no one cares!
    The same stupid people who feel offended by the words Taliban soldiers, buy games in which american soldiers kill Russians, vietnamese and even inocent civilians and they don't care.
    These people are a bunch of hipocrites who talk about respect and sensitiveness, while they don't have any of it towards other nations and cultures.
    If everyone start to act like jerks, there will not be war games anymore.
    People have to realize that THIS IS A GAME and if they feel ofended, just don't buy it or simply buy games in which you kill Chimeras and shut up!.
    By the way! I have nothing against resistance... I think it's very entertaining.

    The way I see it those bans

    While I support EA in a freedom of speach aspect...I also, as with alot of other so called "art"...it is in bad taste.

    Being a former military member, I'm insulted that Britain's Defense Secretary Liam Fox has called a ban to this game that tells a story in a very respectful manner. Considering the Brits have a history of sending men to their death for the purpose of control or plain old greed. When you are without sin then you can cast your stones upon others.

    The main problem i had with Liam Fox's argument was the tone that it would have been an non objectionable game had it just been 'our' troops killing the Taliban. but all of sudden its a horrible game as soon as the role is reversed. I mean do think old Ahmed the Taliban fighter wasn't just as equally someones misguided kid,husband or father. Also going back to 'Geridans' point about it being unethical to make a game based on a current conflict. i can see where your coming from but what about games like 'burnout paridise' and 'NFS' where your driving around 'totaling' cars etc etc how many people die in car accidents every year, does that mean we shouldn't create racing games?

    The interesting thing about video games is that to many they are a form of speech and this games is telling the story of a soldier in Afghanistan. whereas people can also see them a pure form of entertainment and thus getting enjoyment off of the "death" of troops in Afghanistan.

    i don't know if that last bit was relevant but whatever. all morality asside it does look like a bad$>s game.

    true we played as jap's and nazi's in ww2 games what's the big deal. they had real tier one operator's helping them with this game. if it didnt upset them then seriously eveyone should shut about the issue

    I completely agree with you vandal. Just because these game companies got the great idea to design video games after a war doesnt mean its morally wrong ot unethical. People are just now starting to complain about these so called wrong war games. Look at the call of duty series, its had a good majority of the games based on world war I and II. If people are just now complaining and whining about medal of honor then they have no sense. There is nothing wrong with making a game based on some conflict, whether it be past or present. Its a game and thats all it will ever be. Start wasting the complaints for the actual war going on in the middle east and not over some game.

    What an incredible ignorant thing to say that for some reason the conflict in the Middle East should be ignored and that by making a game based on it is some how a moral wrong.

    Someone should tell Geriden that World War II affected millions upon millions of more people than any of the conflicts currently ongoing in the Middle East and yet it is soley the most popular vehicle for video game themes. Just because it happened a little longer ago doesn't mean it never happened, nor does being "current" make anything or any situation anymore real.

    I dont think game's companys should be allowed ot make fps war games based on current or on going conflict's i think it is tactless and morally wrong. Your general gamer can come up with any exscuse under the the sun as to why it should be ok, but at the end of the day people are dead , dieing being raped, tortured and living in misery over there.

    If someone killed your friend, mother , brother sister or father and a games company said ow cool story brah im going to make a game where you get to be the person who just killed your sibling. No i dont think you would be to happy at the tought of someone getting enjoyment out of something that affected your life so profoundly.

    Im a 27 year old gamer from ireland incase people think im one of you "pc" crazed americans.
    That game set in falluja was the same issue and so is this, You can trivialise some thing so serious that is on going and affecting people's live's right now.

    And frankly i dont care if you can play taliban , uk or usa force's its not about that its about making entertainment out of a very bad situation for money its morally and ethicaly wrong to make games about current conflicts !! it just should not be allowed.

    Already got this reserved. Played the multiplayer beta, thought it was awesome (also a little buggy, but still awesome). Can't wait for this to come out.

    I cant believe just cause it "says" taliban in multiplayer people are cryin. Heck what was the MEC (middle eastern coalition) in battlefield 2? what about a cowboy game and someone is indians? Or GTA 4 where its hood rat car thieves VS the police on multiplayer? Need I go on.....If anything this game should strengthen our moral and resolve as americans. Cause the troops over in afganistan are big on multiplayer war games everyone knows this!

    "It is the multi-player version of the game - in which players can play as Taliban insurgents - that has sparked controversy in the UK and the US."
