surely the main point being missed here is that the game is focused on American special forces and as far as i can see has nothing to do with British troops and as mentioned before in multiplayer someone has to play the enemy!
i think the real question is whether it will be better than cod: blackops coming out anyway... (also for those gamers who want a British addon, ARMA2 is bringing out a new addon pack competely dedicated to British troops and equipment, looks good!)
I don't even think you can play as the Brits in MOH multiplayer, I think they've seen the Helmand map and instantly thought, wee Bastards are gonna shoot the Brits with towels on there heads and lets just ban the game.
The Airport mission in COD:MW2, anyone? We went through all this not 12 months ago. Christ, I know for a fact that our forces and the septics play Armed Assault derivitives as Taliban, learning how to plant IEDs in order to understand the mindset and conditions required for a successful ambush. Boo fucking hoo.
Alas, Fox is just giving yet another diatribe from someone on the other side of the generation gap whose gaming experience doesn't extend further than Solitaire. I would have hoped that Doctor Fox would be a little more discerning rather than leaping off at half-cock with incomplete and inaccurate information... but that's obviously too much to expect seeing as authority is obstinately determined to rag on videogames in the same way that our parents got in a tizzy over rock music, and their parents tore their hair out over television. We haven't collapsed into satanic imbecility yet (over a decade of Labour government notwithstanding... ).
