Yes, for $10, you, too, can assasinate our former president (http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=topNews&storyID=6876942)!

These crazy Scots have even brought us the option for instant replays and slow-mo bullets like in Max Payne. Now all we need is for someone to actually buy the game.

"It is despicable," said David Smith, a spokesman for Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy, the late president's brother.

Why not just add...

Everybody knows that it was the government who took him out, not this Oswald joker...

:rolleyes:

While this'll obviously be a sensitive subject for a lot of Americans, I don't understand how this is any worse than the scores of games available where you can kill and/or main hundreds of 'innocent' people on a whim. All you have to do in JFK:Reloaded is match your shot to the 'official' record of events'. It's not like you're trying inventive new ways to take out the President.

I must get round to e-mailing Traffic Games with my ideas for Paparazzi Racer Underground and Drunk Chauffer: The Revenge...

it looks pretty interesting simulation... as they seem to at least to have tried to duplicate the real life movements of the people and the balistics.

Looks a lot like that awesome 3d reconstruction i saw on a documentary last year, the one that totally disproved pretty much all the myths around the event.

As a game it looks very dull though.... :D

Oh dear, I wonder how many people here got that though, sort of a british thing surely.

anyway, I dont see why anyone in their right mind would want to buy this... Oh... right.. of course, their target market is the compleatly antisocial nutcase.

While I don't condone any of those such games, I feel this one is different because it specifically targets a single individual person who really was assassinated. The event itself is a sore spot in the collective unconscious.

Yeah, fair enough I suppose. I wasn't around then which only furthers my indifference to the matter. I've heard people say that while he was a good president, he wasn't the saint he was made out to be. But like I said, it doesn't really bother me one way or the other. It's done now.

How come world leaders are never taken out when you wannit eh? [reads papers and tuts loudly]

What's the difference between a truck of babies and a truck of bowling balls?

Answer:
you can't unload bowling balls with a pitchfork

right, which is why a pitchfork is the most common method of sorting a load of mixed babies and bowling balls. it works like a charm, just one of the ole tricks i learned working down at the manson docks.

Is there a multiplayer version that lets you sit up on the grassy knoll near Deeley Plaza? Maybe play as Jack Ruby and cap Oswald in the garage of the Dallas PD!

Rumor has it you can download a Sirhan Sirhan skin :)

A game where you only get to kill one guy!

Umm, this is horrible. JFK was a great person, probably one of the best Presidents. He was a very progressive, liberal, and black-supporting President.

My Dad and I think that some crazy extreme Republican (one that is racist and supports Bush) probably made it. He was assassinated by a conservative, anti-black rights, Republican.

think of the modding possibilities though - a Bin Laden skin perhaps, or you could adjust it so you could be Kennedy and kill Oswold instead....
