Unrecord Gameplay Divides Audience

The problem with Unrecord is that it looks eerily similar to those videos of police shootings that we've become so accustomed to seeing in recent years. Some see this as a video game merely representing the reality of police work, but others have claimed that it's deeply problematic.

One Twitter user even implied racist intent:

There are others who are worried from a more general perspective about the effects of allowing people to recreate the act of killing in such a realistic fashion:

But it's important to note that a great many of the top comments are simply saying things like "WTF, this looks so real", and "wow, UE5 is wild".

The developers themselves have not commented on any of the more critical replies, but we expect this conversation to continue.

Unrecord does not have a release date yet, but it has been confirmed for PC. You can add it to your Steam Wishlist already. Will you play the game, or do you also see it as problematic?
