If the iranian game reaches the shops, it will be a sharp response to a popular U.S. computer game about a special forces mission to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities.

U.S. Attacks Iran or Assault on Iran was made by Kuma Reality games.

'Bahman' to rescue in Iran anti-US video game

Video-gamers in Iran can now take on the military might of the United States, and rescue a nuclear engineer kidnapped in neighboring Iraq, the semi-official Fars agency said.

The game's plotline revolves around Saeed Kusha, a 30-year-old Iranian engineer abducted by American troops in Iraq while on pilgrimage with his wife to the Shiite holy site of Karbala, according to an AFP report.

When they discover who he is and what he does for a living, American forces decide to kidnap him.

Rugged veteran Iranian special forces hero "Commander Bahman" is appointed head of a special task force to track down and free the engineer. Bahman was a friend of Kusha's father, who was martyred in the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.

The video game, created by members of the Students' Islamic Association, has eight levels and will be soon be on the market, Fars said. It did not say what the game would be called, AFP added.

The "Commander Bahman" game is expected to be released by March 2007.

And here comes the 'Virtual Counter-Attack' launched against Iran:

Assault on Iran, Pt. 3: Payback in Iraq
War game company Kuma\War has announced a game that is a direct response to an Iranian title which depicts US soldiers that kidnap a top Iranian nuclear scientist.

The launch of “Assault on Iran, Pt. 3: Payback in Iraq” is Kuma’s response to the Iranian gaming counter-attack. Picking up where “Commander Bahman” will reportedly leave off, Kuma will weave holes in their own narrative, which they hope will be filled by the Iranian Student Union in subsequent episodes.

Apparently, in the US game, Commander Bahman gets a surprise when he rescues the scientist.

I know this is just a game, but I really don't find it interesting to go and gun down any hapless iranians. And ya know, it really pisses people off!!! gaming companies must learn to stop behaving like 4 year-olds. This isn't funny!!!!

Any thoughts?
