Call Of Duty: Black Ops Castro Mission Upsets Cuban Govt

Call of Duty: Black Ops has fallen foul of the Cuban government, who have slammed a level in the game that ‘encourages’ the player to assassinate former president Fidel Castro.

The Cuban government blasted the offending level on the cubadebate website, arguing: “What the United States government did not achieve in more than 50 years, it now tries to do virtually,” adding that the game legitimises the US attempts to kill the Cuban President over the years T3 reported earlier.

The controversy comes a few months after Medal of Honour, another first person shooter, sparked a moral debate when it was found that players were able to take on the role of the Taliban in the multiplayer fighting against US soldiers.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is currently the best selling game of all time having sold an estimated 7 million copies on it’s launch.
