Despite EA changing the name of the Taliban to "Opposing Force" for Medal of Honor's multiplayer modes, the U.S. Army and Air Force Exchange Services located around the world will not sell the game.
The ban was enforced in late September after it was discovered that players could take the role of Taliban members in multiplayer. Exchange Service spokesman Judd Anstey explains upholding the ban:
"Out of respect to those touched by the ongoing, real-life events presented as a game, Exchanges will not be carrying this product. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause, our position is consistent with the direction stated a month ago. I expect the military families who are authorized to shop the Exchange are aware, and understanding, of the decision not to carry this particular offering."
On-duty military members who wish to purchase the game for themselves will most likely have to get Medal of Honor shipped to their base instead of being able to buy it directly. They might not get their usual military discount but it shouldn't be hard to deal with the shipping restrictions to get it delivered.
