Australia's number one anti-mature games person, South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson has confirmed he will appeal against the rating of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 as a 15 in Australia in an effort to have the game banned. Atkinson believes the game is 'wrong' and 'glorifies terrorism':
“This decision doesn’t surprise me. The Classification Board in Australia does everything to try and get games in under the radar.”

“I worry about any game that encourages gamers to perpetrate extreme violence and cruelty on screen, but this game [Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2] allows players to be virtual terrorists and gain points by massacring civilians. Expecting game designers to be responsible by not glorifying terrorism will always lead to disappointment."
