UK Defence Secretary Liam Fox has hit out against the soon-to-be released video game Medal of Honor, demanding retailers not sell the game.
Liam Fox has openly criticised video game developer Electronic Arts for allowing players to play as the Taliban in its upcoming Medal of Honor game, where players can kill, he says, British troops, the Telegraph reported on Monday.
According to Fox, the plot of the video game recreates the Taliban in a virtual environment, which he says, is an unbelievable act.
Fox said: “It's hard to believe any citizen of our country would wish to buy such a thoroughly un-British game. I would urge retailers to show their support for our armed forces and ban this tasteless product."
In response, the spokesman for EA has clarified that the game is an authenticated digital version of a soldier's experience in the Afghanistan war, and that the report published about killing of British troops is inaccurate, as "no British troops feature in the game."
