    So the Defence Secretary is more concerned about what is happening in a video game than what is happening in the real life conflict in Afghanistan. Typical.

    I imagine this game is an 18 certificate so as we are adults who are able to make our own decisions as to what media we are exposing our fragile minds too maybe he should get on with his job and not waste taxpayer money on this kind of pointless PR exercise.

    No one ever complained (to my knowledge) about people playing Iraqi's (and killing US forces) in Battlefield 1942: Desert Combat did they?

    No one ever complained (to my knowledge) about people playing German/Japanese forces and killing US or Brit forces in the innumerable WWII games have they?

    Do these politicians not have enough to do? Have they missed their media attention quota for the month?

    Like Joe says, persepective is everything.

    News just in: I can play as the Chinese in BF2 against the british. A game which is a few years old now

    Keep up Liam, Keep up.

    Actually more to the point, given the Defence budget review shouldn't he have more important thinsg to be doing than talking about a computer game?!

    Un-British is it Mr Fox? Do I smell the rebirth of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in a British guise? Is his middle name McCarthy?

    "Good moaning"
    All this media attention will just give the game a boost in sales!
    People will want to see what the fuss is about, (like MW2) and end up loving the game for is graphics, fighting style, or whatever.

    It'll probably get a few more people complaining about it before it comes out, but so what?
    I doubt it will affect the majority of people who wish to buy such a game!

    Is this yet another politician going off half-cocked? Wouldn't be the first or last time someone has not let the facts get in the way of a column inch or 6.

    Like many posters, I'll make my own opinions thanks very much Mr Fox.

    "War never changes"

    Didin't the argentinians razed by the british army in the malvinas back in the 80's? They too have wives and kids...

    Not expressing any love for the Taliban, but i find funny the hipocrisy in that statement.

    Yay, another politician shows the "I've read the title and bumf on the back, and formed an opinion" gene!

    Not that I care much, I wasn't planning to buy MOH anyway, looks like someone rubbed MW2 on BC2 and used the blur tool in Photoshop.

    If politicians want to moan about games, they ought to damn well moan about all of the games that offend their sense of taste, otherwise it's just irrelevant grumbling.

    Show support for our troops? Shouldn't he be working on removing them from the field?

    But killing the taliban is OK? I'm not sure anyone realised but the taliban are people too, even if they're not on our side.

    This is just being childish, Is not as if they are protraying the U.K of being worse than a different country.
    Also is only a game.

    I like the "cops and robbers" analogy. Instantly strikes down these morons.

    Funny thing is, if Liam Fox had kept his mouth shut, I would have had an "he's an ok guy" opinion of him today.
