Activision denies Modern Warfare 2 Russian ban
Controversial airport level ditched
The publisher behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has dismissed claims that the videogame has been banned in Russia because of a violent level set within a Russian airport.
“Reports that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been banned in Russia are erroneous,” Activision said.
The source of Russian contention is MW2’s “No Russian” level in which gamers must decide whether to shoot unarmed civilians at a Russian airport in order to infiltrate a terrorist group.
Activision said it chose to remove the contentious level from copies of the game on sale in Russia, where only a PC-based edition of the game is available.
MW2’s “No Russian” level has also sparked outrage in Australia, where local lobbyists have called for the game – rated MA 15+ - to be reclassified.
In the UK, MW2 is available on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game carries an 18 certificate. ®
Its a game
No one died. Further proof can be had by restarting the level and presto! everyones alive again.
(until you kill them)
So no-one noticed
That Dead4Ever and DEAD4EVER are two different people? Come on guys I expect more from my fellow pedants!
What is disturbing is that someone actually signed up with a similar name just to make those posts! Get a frakkin' life!
But it is fairly realistic
I can see their point, it is one of the most real looking games ever, I mean the only thing that let's you know it's not actually real is the fact that YOU ARE HOLDING A GAME CONTROLLER AND IT'S PLAYING ON YOUR TV SCREEN FFS!!!!
