Great parody game

Referring to last review, this game is not reverse racism--it's making fun of ignorance and also a little jab at religion too. Very enjoyable for those of us who have a sense of humor about such things. And "raghead" is a racist term too. Not all Arabs or those of the Muslim faith should be dipped in "Camel Shit". It's that mentality that keeps us from determining who our real enemies are and who is simply trying to live their lives and practice whatever religion they want to. So fuck the archaic KKK, and fuck terrorists but leave innocent people alone whether they're white, brown, black, gay or whatever. Good parody, good sarcasm.

Good game but....

I hate to be the parental figure who has to point it out but if you've ever watched racist cartoons from the thirties up until the fifties you would realize that the stereotype in this game is really offensive to African Americans, as well as black people around the world. The game is great, I just wished you would have designed a different character than a racist stereotype--and I don't say that lightly since I've been accused of stereotyping myself. I doubt it was intentional so I just urge you to do some research into it and possibly think about replacing that character. Nothing wrong with having a black person get barbed in the same game with a white guy, but not like this.
AND I also found it disturbing that not one NG reviewer found that stereotype offensive or at least noted it. I thought I was insensitve, but man that's bad.

Not trying to rag on you. A good game but a questionable character.

Have to admit, I liked it

Didn't think this would be any good at first but then it made me laugh. I was brought up religious, had to memorize verses like those in the game. Aaron, in his own sarcastic way, seems to be pointing out the obvious. Just because it's not done in a friendly and tasteful manner does not mean his point is invalid. It's not a perfect game, but it has balls.
