Activision Comments On Civilian Killing Gameplay
The UK’s Telegraph Newspaper has published the following statement from Activision, on the controversial new leaked video from Modern Warfare 2:
“The scene establishes the depth of evil and the cold bloodedness of a rogue Russian villain and his unit. By establishing that evil, it adds to the urgency of the playerâ€™s mission to stop them.”
â€œPlayers have the option of skipping over the scene. At the beginning of the game, there are two â€˜checkpointsâ€™ where the player is advised that some people may find an forthcoming segment disturbing. These checkpoints canâ€™t be disabled.”
â€œModern Warfare 2 is a fantasy action game designed for intense, realistic game play that mirrors real life conflicts, much like epic, action movies. It is appropriately rated 18 for violent scenes, which means it is intended for those who are 18 and older.”
