New Video Game Let’s You Take on the Heroic Role of…um…Mulsim Assassin Killing Christian Leaders During the Crusades In The Holy Land

The Video Game is Assassin’s Creed and I have been seeing lots of high quality American TV commercials for it.

Here is a Wikipedia blurb:

The game takes place during the Third Crusade, in the year 1191. The player assumes the role of Altaïr (الطائر, Arabic, “The Flying One”), a member of the Hashshashin sect (the original “assassins”), whose objective is to slay the nine historical figures who are propagating the Crusades. As the player finds and kills these targets, their conspiracy is unveiled. The player will be able to travel through three cities: Jerusalem, Acre and Damascus.

Here is a trailer (click here for others):

I can’t imagine that if there were computer game set during WW2 that we would have had games produced and distributed openly in America featuring Japanese or German “heroes” killing Allied soldiers and leaders.

I find this game – this subtle piece of pro-Islam propaganda and a pro-Islam psyop to be disgusting.

Its import should to the US should be denied and the company Ubisoft sanctioned.

  1. Or…maybe the Crusades were actually unjustified and you’re playing as a character who is going after someone who comes and rapes your people.

    It would be different if you were playing as an insurgent attacking Americans. That would be comprable to your WWII analogy. It does make me sad that current WWII games allow people to play as the Nazi’s.

  2. I wasn’t aware there were games where you could play Nazis.

    I have played CivX. There the leaders are often not bice guys.

  3. Oh yeah, almost every single World War II first person shooter game allows you to play as either a Nazi or a Japanese soldier during game play. Especially true if the game allows online play.

  4. Yikes. I had no idea.

  5. Kauffman’s correct on the ability to play all sides in most WW2 games — though often German insignia are slightly different, to allow the game to be showed in Europe.

    More broadly, the original justification for the Crusades (safe passage to pilgrimage sites) is a fully justifiable reason, even under the UN Declaration of Human Rights.
