Not Germany this time, and not a rating board either. Nope, the Governor of the Mexican state of Chihuahua has stated that all copies of the game are to be seized, after the storyline of Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 depicts the Mexicans in a bad light, and features the rather controversial US/Mexican border.
The game came under heavy fire just recently from Juarez Mayor HĂ©ctor MurguĂa LardizĂˇbal, who believes that games of GR:AW 2’s nature “divide the good will of the residents of American and Mexican cities”. Let’s not forget that the game is fiction, ay?
Hearing such wise words, Governor Jose Reyes Baeza Terraces acted and has ordered that all copies of the game are to be seized in the Chihuahuan state. It seems a bit extreme to go as far as to seize all copies of the game. It’s not like Germany ban all World War II games because they see their own people being portrayed in a bad light. But alas, if you’re in Mexico, you might want to give up your copy before it gets taken from you by Government officials.
