Video game allows you to take aim at JFK

Nov. 22, 2004: A new video game, released to coincide with the 41st anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy let players recreate the shooting in Dallas and earn points depending on how accurately their shots match the official version of events as documented by the Warren Commission, which probed the assassination.

“JFK Reloaded” was called “despicable” by a spokesman for Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy, the late president’s brother.

“We believe that the only thing we’re exploiting is new technology,” said a spokesman for the game’s parent company.

Players, who take on the role of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, lose points if they hit first lady Jacqueline Kennedy.
