I'm not saying it shouldn't be in the game, or that I won't play it, but I still think it's unsettling.

I'm inclined to agree here.


Besides, it wasn't all slaughter for slaughters sake, at the end (if ya'll watched it that far) it reveals that the level is, presumably, a catalyst for the whole story. Plus I thought the twist at the end was pretty damn good, I certainly didn't see it coming.

Plus I would assume you can walk through the level without firing a shot if you want, I doubt the characters are programmed to pick up on that.

People should take video games more seriously...every once in awhile. Otherwise that brings that anti-gaming legislation one step closer to shutting it down. Remember what happened to comics in the 50's.

I will say I'm glad the developers had the tact to make that an optional level.

So....A bunch of (non-American) guys in a video game go into an airport (that isn't even American) with automatic weapons and kill a bunch of (non-American) travelers, don't hijack a plane, nevermind fly into something......and then real life Americans get butthurt because it conjures memories to a real-life incident in which 19 (non-American) guys got legal passports and visas, took legal training classes, went through security at the airport, legally, and then used improvised knives to fly planes into buildings.

It has to be, because GTA is much worse and more realistic than this shit. And more entertaining.

GTA is more realistic? That looks about as realistic as you can get.
