It isnt glorifying war, its bringing it into living rooms and simulating it as closely as possible. Andy McNab, The Sun THE phrase an assault on the senses doesnt come close: its thrilling, immersive, sometimes scary, always exciting, and occasionally overwhelming. Dont worry. It wont turn anyone into a killer. Charlie Brooker, The Guardian AS LONG as you are aware the 18 certificate is not there just for show, Modern Warfare 2 is a double-barrelled blast. Its bloody, brutal and will be a hit. David Hutchinson, The Times IT SOMEHOW manages to live up to all the anticipation surrounding it. Often brutal, superbly cinematic and never less than gripping from start to finish. Kevin Lynch, The Mirror THE mother of a Covent Garden fashion buyer who was run down and killed when a driver fell asleep at the wheel said today the pain will be with us forever. Serbian Zorana Stancic, 22, from Vauxhall, died with her friend Azra Podrug, 35, when Collette Wilson lost control of a hired van and mounted the pavement as she drove back from performing at the Notting Hill Carnival. Wilson, a mother-of-one from Brixton, was yesterday jailed for five years after admitting two counts of causing death by dangerous driving. She had been awake for 19 hours and had slept for less than 10 hours in the two nights leading up to the crash in South Lambeth Road on 26 August. Ms Stancics mother Rushka Murganovic said: This will be difficult for us forever. I want people to know exactly what happened and how this woman, who has a child of her own, killed my daughter. Wilson was also given a six-year driving ban at Inner London Crown Court. Victims: Zorana Stancic and Azra Podrug were both killed surrounding it. cinematic and than gripping Kevin Military operation: models in costume bring copies of the game to the launch in Leicester Square, right, as fans queue POLITICIANS today called for restrictions on a computer war game that allows players to kill innocent civilians. As fans queued throughout the night to buy a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, MPs demanded assurances it would not be sold or passed to children. The game was unveiled at a pre- miere in Leicester Square with tanks and models in military cos- tume. It is expected to break sales records at the launch today. It was the first time Westminster council has granted permission for a games launch in the traditional movie heartland. But Labour MP Keith Vaz, the home affairs select committee chairman, attacked the brutality of the 18-certificate game and called on the Commons to act to ensure it did not end up in the hands of children. Junior culture minister Sion Simon said the clearest recommen- dation of the Byron review -- which last year looked into the risks faced by children from inappropriate video games -- was that content suitable for adults should be labelled and sold as such. Activision, the company behind the game, said three million copies could be sold in its opening week in the UK alone. The launch was hosted by presenter Vernon Kaye and comedian Dom Joly.
