Canadian PM Gets Shot…in Ghost Recon

The curiously named Ghost Recon: Advanced Warrior is the newest XBox 360 game in the long-running Tom Clancy franchise. In a plot point early on, the Canadian Prime Minister gets assassinated during a summit in Mexico:

In the game, the continental chiefs are in Mexico City to sign the North American Joint Security Agreement (softwood lumber didn’t make the agenda).

Things are going smoothly until Mexican rebels storm the leaders’ rendez-vous and kidnap the American and Mexican presidents, assassinate the prime minister and leave it up to the game player to save the day. The game was designed by Ubisoft, a worldwide firm with a flagship studio in Montreal that employs 1,400 people.

If you haven’t seen ads or videos from this game, it looks insanely good. The physics look unbelievably real.
