The first video game to recreate killing bin Laden has already been released

the first video game to recreate killing bin laden has already been released kuma warWell that didn’t take long. Just over a week ago, US Navy SEALS raided Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Abbotabad, Pakistan, where the terrorist leader was killed. Wasting no time at all, Kuma Reality Games has released the final downloadable episode of its long-running Kuma\Wars games—a free to download first-person shooter series—titled Kuma/War II: The Death of Osama bin Laden.

Kuma Reality Games have made a name for themselves by releasing real battles and current military engagements as video games–usually within a month of the actual event. The first episode of the current Kuma\Wars 2 series debuted in 2006 with the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, so it is really no surprise that Kuma Reality Games was the first to the market with a game based on bin Laden’s death.

Regardless of who was first, it was inevitable. American gamers love FPS titles, and the killing of bin Laden is source of national pride. Plus, bin Laden was killed with a headshot, which as any FPS gamer can tell you, is the proper way to handle these type of things.

“With a skill created by years of practice, you and a group of Navy SEALs quickly enter the compound that houses the world’s most infamous terrorist,” the press release from Kuma Games stated.

“Methodically working your way through the large compound, you clear the opposing forces, take out al Qaeda’s last defense, clear weapons caches, and gather critical intel. When the smoke clears, your ultimate target — Osama Bin Laden, murderer of thousands of Americans and innocents around the globe, head of al Qaeda and enemy of the world lays dead.”

The game itself, episode 107 in the Kuma Wars series, is little more than an existing game that features the likeness of bin Laden as the primary target for you to hunt through the compound, but it still carries the distinction of being the first video game to recreate the raid. But give it time, more games depicting the last stand of the al-Qaeda leader are sure to follow.
