Mission to get Osama Bin Laden now available as free shooter

Last week's US Navy SEALS mission in Pakistan that resulted in the death of Osama Bin Laden has now been replicated as a free multiplayer game that uses Valve's Source Engine. As promised a few days ago, the Kuma Games development team has released the latest chapter of its long running episodic shooter series Kuma War II. The 107th chapter is titled Osama 2011 and attempts to recreate the mission conducted on May 1 via the available news reports on the mission.

The game pits one team of players as the Navy SEAL Team Six who raided the al Qaeda compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan where Bin Laden was reportedly living for the past several years. The other human team take on the roles of Qaeda defenders who have to keep the SEAL team from killing Bin Laden. The now late leader of al Qaeda is himself controlled by computer AI rather than by a human in the game. The SEAL team's main objective is to find and kill Bin Laden but there are other missions as well such as recovering his body and also obtaining intel about al Queda from the compound.

Keep in mind that this is a online multiplayer game only; there is no single player component. Also keep in mind that this game was created in the space of a few days with an older version of Valve's Source Engine technology so the graphical look of the game is several years old. Finally while the game is available to download and play for free, it requires an installer program that forces you to watch video ads from other companies.

Respect for a mass murderer? Seriously? Did you by chance get the last head count of all the people that DIED because of this guy on 9/11? Nearly 3000 people died in one day because of this guy. Tell that to the 9/11 survivors and others who lost someone that day.

Id play it. And im gonna shoot the hell outa osama bin ladin. After that, im going to have a drink, and have a good night sleep.

weird there is a blood bag in the pic, as they found no dialisis or any other related medical stuff in the compound outside of normal drugs

This game is wrong on so many levels.... Its like that game the Klan had out where you get points for shooting blacks and minorities.

Why, anything wrong with bringing the realities of politically-sanctioned extra-judicial killings to the masses?

you mean Redneck Rampage

I wonder if we should start working on a game where you storm the US Congress and shoot, decapitate and molest people - then release it as free-to-play.

That would make nice headlines

Yea, cause as a group the US Congress completely compares to a single Terrorist Leader...

You are right. They should be compared to a group of terrorists.

From a neutral perspective, yes they would be considered terrorists. The war on Iraq? It was all about oil, and we all know George Bush Sr had a grugde against them so what happens? George Bush Jr decided to invade them even when the UN led top researchers to investigate whether they had WOMD and found nothing. I mean c'mon many people with power end up abusing it, and this is what happens when you're the most powerful nation in the world! When you make a comment, make sure you look at both sides of the argument, thats all!

Neutral yet you mention a Republican father/son. Riight... Also WOMD = WMD...

I won't play the game, but sometimes people will make a game out of anything *looks towards the cheeseburger game*

Most expensive oil ever. Maybe that's why gas prices are so high?

I'm mentioning them because they both led America when they invaded Iraq for oil? And Solid Knight, blame OPEC and America for not keeping things under control. If you invade a nation that is in the Organization, then obviously theres going to be some hostilities and a rise in price. I hope you realize that Canada, Russia, Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico all have a LOT of oil as well. If you guys wanted to lower the prices of oil, then go to either of those nations, and stop relying on OPEC..they wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for America.

Are ANY games necessary? I don't have any interest in this game but the same can be said about many games...

Any worse than WW2 games recreating actual battles? E.g. medal of honor normandy landing.

Were there death squad missions in WWII?

thommcg said,

In a sense, weren't they all?

No. Not really. America outlawed political assassination long ago.

A death squad is an armed military, police, insurgent, or terrorist squad that conducts extra-judicial killings, assassinations, and forced disappearances of persons as part of a war, insurgency or terror campaign. These killings are often conducted in ways meant to ensure the secrecy of the killers' identities, so as to avoid accountability.

Death squads are often, but not exclusively, associated with the violent political repression under dictatorships, totalitarian states and similar regimes. They typically have the tacit or express support of the state, as a whole or in part (see state terrorism). Death squads may comprise a secret police force, paramilitary group or official government units with members drawn from the military or the police. They may also be organized as vigilante groups.

Don't talk nonsense.

The raid on his compound was not an assassination- it was not a death squad.

WW2 soldiers did what they needed to- they were not death squads.

Jog on.

Several attempts were made at killing Adolph Hitler (by people on both sides). I guess you don't know your history very well, do you?

What I mean is, as Patton puts it:
"No ****** ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb ****** die for his country."

Another quote:
Grandpa, what did you do in the great ww2. Well, you won't have to tell him that you shoveled s**t in Louisiana.

Yes, it was. It meets all of the definition. If another country tried the same on America you'd be all upset about it. You don't realize what you lost here. Its a slap in the face of your Constitution and Bill of Rights. You may as well stamp on them "Void when necessary."

That's why it was an apples and oranges comparison.

The bin Laden takedown was specifically an assassination. They even said it in the news that the mission was not to capture, but to kill. That was confirmed.
