Hamza CTZ Aziz of Destructoid: Needless to say, I got pretty excited when I heard a new Medal of Honor was in the works. The fact that the game takes place in my home country of Afghanistan got me even more hyped. Blow terrorists up? Awesome! America! Football! Hamburgers! Dancing with the Stars!
Then I got my hands on it and it became a different story. I soon realized that this iteration of the franchise allows you to control and role play as the people responsible for terrorizing my friend’s and family’s homeland, both here and overseas. In the shuffle of an EA press event at a shoulder’s length away from my peers, I just froze there looking at the different playable Al-Qaeda characters. It’s funny how we keep feelings in the backs of our minds, and how they can just suddenly appear when the situation arises.
