Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Huh, hadn't heard about that.
I'm behind the times I see:
The game lingers upon the face of a bloodied victim and with the push of a few buttons you insert a piece of broken glass into his mouth and punch him in the face (watch here).
In the controversial mission entitled "No Russian," you walk through an airport armed with a set of machine guns, slaughtering hundreds of terrified and screaming civilians. [...] , this mission is central to the storyline of Modern Warfare 2 and gamers aiming to enjoy the full experience of the game are likely to play it anyway (certainly most reviewers opted to play the full game).
Call of Duty supports the myth that America needs to defend itself against the perpetual threat of foreign tyranny and spontaneous terrorism, and that it is pulled into wars rather than creating them. As Modern Warfare 3 approaches, poised to become the next best-selling game of all time, we can expect a similar, propagandist appeal to warfare: you fight in New York, London, Paris, and Berlin - you are fighting for nothing less than the preservation of the First World way of life.

Things have moved on since I played Wizball.
