"Right now we're still reviewing what we're going to do," he said.

British Defense Secretary Liam Fox blasted the game last month, calling it a "tasteless product" and demanding retailers ban the game. EA told the BBC that the game does not allow the Taliban to kill British soldiers.

"Medal of Honor" is only the latest in a long line of video games to court controversy as products that offer depiction of sex and violence grow in popularity and realism.

There have been previous attempts to bring the war on terrorism to a video game console with varying success. Scotland-based T-Enterprise dropped plans last year to release "Rendition: Guantanamo," after protests over the game's mission to help wrongly accused detainees escape the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba.

Another game, "Six Days in Fallujah," was also scrapped by Japanese-based Konami Corp. after protestors complained that a real Iraqi battle shouldn't become a virtual experience for gamers.
