Here's another reason EA may have ditched the "Taliban" from Medal of Honor's multiplayer: if the publisher had lost US Army support for the game, they may never have been able to run this ad!

It doesn't do much for us as a game trailer, but for the average consumer watching it (it's a TV spot) it'll surely make some kind of impact; after all, it's not often you see this kind of serious, real-world tone taken with a video game.

Some may think it's a little heavy-handed, blurring out their faces, but considering the game is based on a conflict still very much going on today, it would have been worse showing a bunch of actual soldiers' faces effectively endorsing a piece of entertainment.
