Cuba Denounces Call Of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops' campaign includes a mission where players attempt to assassinate Fidel Castro. The Cuban government is less than thrilled at this design decision.

"This new video game is doubly perverse," said an article on Cubadebate, a state-run news site (via the AP). "On the one hand, it glorifies the illegal assassination attempts the United States government planned against the Cuban leader ... and on the other, it stimulates sociopathic attitudes in North American children and adolescents."

I'm slightly more curious to find out what the Cuban government thought about Fidel's appearance in the zombie co-op mode. It depicts him battling undead alongside JFK, Nixon, and Robert McNamara.
