    Yeah I think it's reasonable they're upset about it; the constant US-glorifying, history-bending crap you see in lots of American media even annoys me but I can't help thinking this is the reaction they were hoping for, to gain some media attention...

    i agree, i havent played the new cod (overpriced mod if you ask me!) but i presume you actually win in terms of assassinating this man? If they want to show the real history(which is what they are trying to do, right?) then they should make it so you have to FAIL that mission, get extracted or something .

    I hate American glorification, its just as bad as them saying they won WW2 all on their own when really we did the majority of the ****! They just gave us munitions and sat back till they got bombed. I recall at US schools they get told that basically D-Day was done mainly by america, this was what my new american friend in university told me .

    Oh wells, eitherway it should be changed... if EA did it to MOH then they should change something here, atleast with MOH they were using Taliban and to be completely honest, no one likes them so its nice to say "I killed the flipping taliban!!!!"

    /end .

    TBH, i was quite surprised by the assassination thing (even though its not him).

    If someone was to do the equivalent with Obama they would be arrested and probably locked up.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Well, they did use Atom bombs ...
    We were busy with Germany while they were busy with Japan ( US is closer to Japan than UK )

    Spoiler (highlight to reveal): You only assassinate a double
    Yeah you probably would be locked up for advocating terrorism or something if you had something like that in it. And don't get me started on US glorification, you hear it all the time and I'm pretty sure everyone else outside of the US is well aware of it. Whether it's history, equipment or whatever they don't mind completely bending the facts to make them come out on top every time.
