The “No Russian” Level

Leaked video game footage shows terrorist attack : This is causing some controversy:

Footage leaked from “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” reveals that players of the upcoming video game can shoot innocent civilians in an airport in a realistic rendering of a terrorist attack.

In the storyline, the player is undercover with a terrorist group, and gets caught up in an attack at an airport.

Destructoid has a full run-through of the level in HD.  I’m not squeamish by any means, but it’s brutal.  Fast-forward to 2:00.  Video game or not, it’s tough to watch in parts.  I travel a lot, and watching those people get machine-gunned while waiting in the security line hit a little close to home.
