Game players can be John Kerry
A US computer games firm is offering subscribers the chance to re-enact John Kerry's role in his controversial Vietnam Swift Boat mission.

Kuma Reality Games says it has created the first-ever re-enactment of the events surrounding the Democrat presidential candidate's Silver Star-winning action.

It is one mission in a series of war recreations that also include the last stand of Uday and Qusay Hussein in Iraq and Operation Anaconda - a 2002 US military campaign in Afghanistan.

The Kuma\War game is a first and third-person, tactical squad-based military game for PCs.

The war service of Bush and Kerry has been under scrutiny. Based on the navy's records of the encounter on 28 February 1969, players who subscribe to the Kuma\War service can take the role of John Kerry and lead three Swift Boats though the small tributaries deep in the Mekong Delta.

As the boats come under fire from Viet Cong hiding in the nearby brush, it is up to the player to decide a course of action.

Keith Halper, chief executive of Kuma Reality Games, told BBC News Online the game would "bring clarity" over the nature of Mr Kerry's mission.

"It is not our goal to make a political statement with the mission, but to present a lens with which to view the event, and the tools to enable people to make an informed decision.

"We hope people who experience the mission will come away with a deeper appreciation of Kerry's service and the service of all Swift Boat Veterans in Vietnam."<hr /></blockquote> I'm already on my second purple heart! What a great game! Thanks, Q! /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
