Alliance For Global Justice Demands Call of Duty: Black Ops Boycott

Call of Duty: Black Ops has come under fire again, this time from The Alliance for Global Justice who have called for the game to be boycotted.

The news comes just days after Black Ops sparked controversy in Cuba, due to a level in the game in which the player is encouraged to assassinate former President Fidel Castro. Reacting to this news the AFGJ are now lobbying parents and retailers to remove the game from the shelves.

According to The Escapist, The AFGJ has claimed that the game is a "hyper-realistic violent Cold War role-playing game in which the player joins the Bay of Pigs invasion and then carves bloody mayhem through Cuba with the mission to assassinate a young Fidel Castro,” adding that retailers are, "dealing this pornography to the children in your community.”

Despite the latest dispute, Call of Duty: Black Ops has had one of the most successful launches of any video game ever, having made $360 million in it’s first day alone.
