Gamescom 2010: Medal of Honor Hands-On Impressions

Upcoming war game Medal of Honor has been gaining a lot of attention lately, but not necessarily the good kind. The game's frank depiction of The Taliban caught the attention of British Defence Secretary Liam Fox, who called on retailers not to sell Medal Of Honor in order to "show their support for the armed forces."

Electronic Arts has maintained that people condemning the game have it wrong, and in order to reaffirm the game's patriotism, they plan to offer everyone interested a chance to play the beta version of the game on PC. The trial run opens on October 4 and closse again on October 7. Here's where you can sign up.

"We hope that by offering the multiplayer open beta, we can clear up any misunderstanding about the patriotism and respect that are the foundation of this game," said EA Games boss Frank Gibeau in a statement. "The Medal of Honor franchise has always shown extraordinary reverence for American and Allied soldiers - this game is no exception."

I get nervous when masses of people start waving flag, no matter what's on them, but I fully support any shows of Patriotism that involve people playing video games! USA! USA!

Are you planning on playing this game when it comes out on October 15?
