    Man, I love the “for security reasons…” gag.

    There’s absolutely no requirement to protect the identities of former service members :P

    It only goes for active duty members.

    Well it’s not so much a “requirement”, but certain individuals may have issues or whatever with the ones who took part in these missions and may seek out revenge or something. That’s all I could think of for it.

    You seem to actually know though, so I digress.

    To the game though, lookin’ nice, I wonder in what areas it’ll be better or significantly different than Battlefield 3.

    True Medal of Honor games were Medal of Honor, Medal of Honor Underground, Medal of Honor Allied Assault (the best) and maybe Medal of Honor Frontline. Every other was like, meh. Especially the “reboot”.

    @3 That’s a fair point, and it is really a question of how cautious the individual wants to be, but very few soldiers have been assassinated for being soldiers, special forces or otherwise, and there are many of them who are perfectly known out and about.

    Andy McNabb supposedly justifies disguising himself, with the fact that he most likely shot an IRA militiaman during a tour of Northern Ireland (before he joined special forces) which is understandable, given the IRAs history of targeted assassination.

    … But then it also begs the question why he is apparently quite happy to work with numerous TV stations and basically keep himself constantly in the limelight.

    A higher ranking SAS officer, Peter Ratcliffe, saw action in Oman and other theaters, killing people as well, and he has no qualms with showing his face, and in his own book he lashes out against that whole mentality.

    So it does hold a lot of different considerations. Ultimately though, Al Qaeda rarely go out of their way to kill individuals, and I don’t think they give a damn about green berets or navy seals, even if they’ll kill them when the opportunity presents itself.

    By and large, special forces try very hard to be a “secret service”, but when it comes to the soldiers themselves, there’s very little value in trying to stay unidentified. I think it’s a matter of pride most of the time, which is obviously undermined whenever someone starts writing books, or doing videogames. I love ‘em for it, though :P
