 Mission Of Honor  Is China's Answer To  America's Army
Mission Of Honor Is China's Answer To America's Army
May 16, 2011 | By Frank Cifaldi

The Chinese People's Liberation Army has co-developed a first-person shooter military simulation for its officers and soldiers called Mission of Honor, according to a report.

According to the PLA Daily (as translated by China Daily), the game was co-developed with Wuxi Giant Interactive Group, and has been in development for approximately two years.

The game is said to follow a typical soldier's life at military camp, with a storyline leading to a final large-scale battle code-named the "Mission of Honor." Modes include basic training, solo missions and team combat.

Mission of Honor is said to be "quite fun," according to the report, and was developed because military simulations created by foreign countries may confuse soldiers due to other militaries having different values.

The game follows the United States' own official military simulation, America's Army, which Army personnel famously claimed was more effective at recruitment than "any other method of contact."

As of December of 2009, the United States Military has spent $33 million on the series' development.

Mission of Honor is in its final debugging stages, and is expected to be released soon.

How great would it have been if they called it "Call of Honor" or, uh, "Medal of Duty"? Missed opportunity there!

Yes, Tim, he's a zombie you get to kill in the bonus round. Those tricksy Hong Kong Americans!

Ahem... Bruce Lee doesn't need a gun. And, you might know... I think Bruce Lee was an amazing person, as one who studied martial arts briefly. (Or are you so programmed to be on the hunt for "racism" that you are not able to see the gentle ribbing humour of one who loves another?)

I'm sure the man who stood in front of the tanks will be very proud.
