China has banned a computer game because it tarnished the image of the country and its army.
According to state media Project IGI2: Covert Strike - which was created by the Norway-based Innerloop Studios and published by UK-based Codemasters -
has broken tough gaming laws because it "hurt China's national dignity and interests". Officials got the hump because part of the game is set in
China, from where a mercenary engages in sabotage and shoots at its soldiers.
Heavens forbid the game showed actuall events from history, then they would have wanted to execute the game developers. Given their history I
wouldn't be so worried about fiction in a game but facts in the history books.
