Russians Say Nyet To Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

MW2 SPOILER ALERT!

Russia bans Modern Warfare 2 over “airport terror” level

Modern Warfare 2 continues to be dogged by controversy, as its sales soar. While British MPs bicker about banning the game, Russia has done just that, removing it from sale and recalling all copies sold.

The Russian government pulled Modern Warfare 2 as a response to the Russian airport terror level, which we first revealed a few weeks back. But Russian gamers are also taking to gaming sites to attack developer Infinity Ward for its portrayal of their nation.

Infinity Ward will submit an edited version of the game within the month, hoping that the Russian government will be mollified enough to restore Modern Warfare 2 to the shelves. It has also removed the airport terror level entirely for Russian gamers.

Modern Warfare 2 sees Russia and America at war after the Russian Federation is taken over by a group of ultra-nationalists. Now what about that could possibly offend the Russians? Perhaps they should take a peep at the Modern Warfare 3 spoof instead.

Gee, now why would the Russian government be offended by this?
