Game Lets You Recreate Osama's Death Raid

With the popularity of shooters like Call of Duty, Modern Warfare, Medal of Honor and the Battlefield Bad Company series, there's clearly a continued fascination with modern day scenarios.

It's only natural, then, that there be an Osama bin Laden shooter. Kuma War got its 107th and final episode, which is a mission on the bin Laden compound. You can grab that mission here if you've got the game.

Perhaps even more interesting is the browser-based game Bin Laden Raid, coming from a site called News Gameplay that hopes to engage an audience by letting them experience it in an interactive fashion.

Jeremy Alessi, one of the game's developers, told Wired that his team finished the game in a 25-hour marathon coding session.

“The layout itself is not factual, just logical from the information at the time,” Alessi told Wired. The developers pieced together the map from Google Maps and made the layout based on the video footage released to news organizations.

“Running through the sim gives a perspective that cannot be communicated any other way,” he says. “[Players] witness firsthand what was seen from the ground and perhaps a few similar thoughts are shared between the person who experienced the event for real and the person who just used the sim.”

    what, going in with 2 helicopters, shooting 4 guards, shooting a woman in the leg and headshotting a single guy?

    It better be a bonus mission or massively padded out...

    Hmmm... wonder if you can capture and not kill bin Laden? Either that or drop the gun and just punch the living daylights out of him til he doesn't move any more...

    First one looked decent enough, the second looked like garbage. Either way, I sincerely doubt it was quite that simple in real life.

    actually the latest derivation of the story says, there was no armed personnel and Osama was simply unarmed. The mission was to murder since no solid evidence was there to prosecute him i.e forensic evidence.
