Grand Theft Auto: Coventry Ring Road recalled for being too accurate

Grand Theft Auto: Coventry Ring Road, released last week for XBox and PS3, has had to be recalled owing to a number of injuries sustained during the game. These have ranged from road rage to a stress-related boil, doctors said.

The game recreates the  adrenaline-charged excitement that is the Coventry Ring Road, with players being sworn at in full 5-channel surround sound and trying to nip into fast-moving traffic which refuses to let them in. 

However, experts have arned that the graphics are so real that they can cause medical problems. ‘All sensible drivers know never to touch the A4053,’ a spokesperson for the Department of Transport said yesterday.  ‘We will be looking to impose an immediate ban on it and on Coventry too.’
