"We had intended to convey the reality of the battles to players so that they could feel what it was like to be there."

That statement is probably worth a thread on its own. Releasing a game based in Iraq, when there is a war going on, with the intention of giving gamers the eperience of being there? I mean wtf were they thinking? The game looked quite good I'll grant them that, but I think a bit of tact might be advised when coming up with a new war game. If you want to blame anyone don't blame the US Government, blame the development team for not thinking this might be a little inappropriate at the moment.

What's next? A hitman game where you have to kill people using a new strain of swine flu?

(On side note, I laughed at the bit at the end of CoD:WaW when the credits dedicated the game to the heroes of WW2, just before you get to play against Zombie Nazis. Heartfelt words indeed.)
