    I'm just amazed that some sleezebag managed to lower himself to the point where he could create something like this! :x

    IMO that is sick. After all the people who have died and been injured, the idea of making this into a game is just sick.

    I didn't click on the link because I could not face what some sick mind has found to make light of this. If I am wrong then I'm sorry, but IMHO this should not have happened.

    That's really bad. There's always someone who'll do it though.
    It's a double insult that it's been done so badly.

    Having said that, there is something in the British character that gives us the ability to laugh about the most terrible things just in order to give us the strength to go on.

    disclaimer - evidently added by creator Keith E. Fieler to avoid possible litigation - states: "This game is in no way affiliated with Transport for London.

    I liked this disclaimer though. It's there just in case someone thought that the London Transport System had come up with a great new money spinning idea. They've been toying with the Playstation 3 idea for a London Transport game for ages. Unfortunately it's really dull. It was going to be called 'Gridlock' and involve David Hasslehoff. Bombs? Great idea, what? Someone's already done it? Sh1t.

    Sorry guys, im going to have to be controversial here. i dont particularly think its sick, not in a world where we can play high-tech, realistic games where we can blow peoples heads off (world war two games, for instance), etc. Its simply a result of the games industry we ourselves have developed.

    I do agree, however, that it is far too soon after the event, and as such, extremely insensitive.
