not really a review, but the game is no longer being sold from big stores because of a level when you have to kill a shitload of muslim terrorists.

Game are still selling it, and it's not Muslims, its Sikhs. Eidos have said they'll alter the content of the Gamecube version and remove any references from their website about those parts of the game, but we've not had any news of the current PS2, Xbox and PC versions being pulled completely.

Because obviously it's politically incorrect to be seen to be killing muslim terrorists in a game.

White terrorists would be fine of course, so who're the ones being discriminatory.

PC = arse

I don't think they'd have a problem killing Muslim terrorists as they actually exist, I think the Sikhs objected to it because they don't actually have any terrorists (probably because a 3 foot diameter turban isn't very covert ;))

*cough* Erm, mid, thats a bit of a sweeping generalisation there. For a start, "Pakistani" isn't a religion, it's a nationality, as you know, and the vast majority of people in Asia believe it or not aren't actually terrorists, it's just a few nutters here and there. Saying things like that isn't exactly helping the issue either.

sept 11 has completely changed the meaning of terrorist,

terrorist's are people that use terror for personal gain.

and i would say that terrorism has FUCKING NOTHING to do with nationality or religion.


also i see whoever crashed the plane into the twin towers as mislead freedom fighters, not terrorists.

As opposed to people who use terror for the good of mankind? hmmm.
