EA has slapped back at critics of Mercenaries 2’s “fully destructible Venezuela” saying those opposed to the title on political grounds are just being silly.

“All the controversy around this is kind of comical,” said EA comms head Jeff Brown. “At the end of the day you have to remind yourself it’s a damned video game.”

The game’s out this weekend on the US, which, according to this Reuters piece, is “likely to anger allies of President Hugo Chavez, a Washington foe, who has in the past threatened to cut off oil exports to the United States.”

We reckon Mr Brown may have a point, Mr Reuters.
