From the PlanetXbox360.com feature editorial:
"So, you might’ve seen the news regarding a controversial name change in Electronic Arts’ upcoming Medal of Honor reboot, set to hit stores next week. Instead of facing off against the Taliban, based on a real terrorist group, you will instead be facing…the “Opposing Force”. Now, will this make any difference in terms of gameplay? No, we don’t really think so, as it’ll still pack enough excitement and run-and-gun action to keep fans of first-person shooters coming back for more. But, still, it’s a little worrisome when a game that is supposed to be based on a real tier of soldier – Tier 1 operatives, to be exact – and yet the enemies they face aren’t so realistically named. That’s not to say they won’t react like a real terrorist would. You’ll run into several dire situations where the “Opposing Force” rains gunfire down on you or blows up one of your transport choppers right there in front of you."
