UK Police Chiefs Outraged At Reservoir Dogs Game

If there's one thing in life that's almost guaranteed, it's that any high-profile videogame that leans towards the more violent persuasion will usually get identified and demonised by certain UK tabloid newspaper.

But not this time, as the newspaper appears to have been beaten to it by the UK's Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO). The group has taken it upon itself to attach some form of notoriety to Eidos and Volatile Games' forthcoming adaptation of Reservoir Dogs on Xbox, PlayStation2, and PC.

Speaking to the Yorkshire News, one representative of the ACPO said, "Anything that encourages violent emotions, including such emotions towards members of the police service, is particularly disturbing and can only be described as...It is disappointing to find violent video games on the market that may cause psychological harm to those who play them."
