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.

I'm so happy to live in a country that doesn't censor everything.

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.
