I dont get all the ranting about the accuracy of real life details in the game. I'ts a game, its not meant to be learning experience and more importantly I dont know anyone who would allow their children to play a game that accurately defined sex/drug trafficking.

I'ts a very serious topic indeed and it really has no business being in a video game. I dont think the devs were being lazy when they changed certain elements, they were just plying it safe.

Watched the whole video. Kind of hard to take somebody serious when they try and convey a point through cartoons and an annoying voice. Besides, I don't play games for the message they convey or the politics. I play them for fun.

This. Ever since Ubisoft implemented the online connection required to play even singleplayer DRM, I haven't bought any more games from them. It's a shame really, cause I've missed out on Assassin's Creed games and The Settlers 7.

This video actually gave me reasons not to buy. I've watched some of his videos before, and he's kind of hard to understand, but at least he talked about the gameplay rather than the ethics.

I think we all play them for fun.
But some misinterpretations are more an insult rather and inaccuracy.

I don't expect a game to be highly illustrative about something, but at least it mustn't be the opposite as reality (equal to a lie or an intented / unintented falsification of real matters), mostly when it's pretending to be serious.

And everything has its ethics, you can care about it or not, but it is there.

In fact it is my belief that the more respectful you are when you write about something, and I mean anything, the better your result is.

Otherwise, it becomes stupid, naive and worse things.

The game is bad indeed, but its not a lot worse than the Call of Duty games, its basically the exact same principle and design, just not so well done.

It´s a pretty good mature action game imo. Solid shooting, stunning visuals and some of the sexiest textures out there.

Much better then Bound in Blood but it could have been really awesome if it hadn´t been designed as a coop game.
