SEALS used to keep their mouths shut for various reasons mostly national security and the need for anonymity. Now SEAL team 6 seems to just want to cash in on the Bin Laden raid. Now they're writing books and working with game companies. Smh I thought it was just one knucklehead. Boy was I wrong. But hey maybe it will make for a better game.

They really can't. Which is why they were punished.

If it weren't for the Bin Laden raid the punishment might have been worse.

I still find it funny they call this game even close to realistic. I'm sure the seals were in such hectic environments where they blew up entire complexes on accident....and not once was it reported.

Socom has a better chance at being realistic than Warfighter......

I dont think they were trying to be realistic... More like authenticity.

Even then it fails. Blasting doors open with no real concern on whats on the other side. Fighting helicopters from point blank range. Blowing up entire complexes, etc....

The first MOH had authenticity, this one didn't.

^ Don't forget the ridiculous AimDownSight speed.

I'm really not even sure why the devs bother. It seems like the studio is split in half, with the story side trying to go for authenticity, and the gameplay side trying to go for arcade action.
