WARNING: MINOR SPOILERS!
When Treyarch said they weren't avoiding controversy and torture in Black Ops, they weren't lying. Details of the Numbers mission have been revealed, and guess what; there's torture.
- "The beginning of Numbers opens with an interrogation. More accurately, it begins with a player-controlled interrogation. As you beat on your prisoner trying to pry information out of him, your character notices a glass window to his left. An on-screen prompt appears so you can interact with the panes, which I immediately assumed would allow your character to smash the prisoner's head through the glass. Not so. Instead, pressing the left trigger allows your character to punch the glass himself and remove a single shard. "Maybe he's going to cut the captured soldier ever-so-slowly", I thought. No, instead he inserts the shard into the poor bastard's mouth and proceeds to bludgeon either side of his face as the razor sharp object slices the inside of his mouth causing him to shriek in pain. It was gruesomely awesome and set the stage nicely for the rest of Black Ops' intensity."
Your thoughts? Is this too brutal for your tastes? Or is this just up your alleyway? Do you expect controversy like MW2's No Russian?
