The most highly anticipated first-player shooter video game of the year, "Call of Duty: Black Ops," begins with a controversial mission in which players try to kill a young Fidel Castro in 1960s Havana. 

Scenes like that and others drew harsh criticism Wednesday from Cuba, which said the new video game was violent, glorified the assassination -- and will turn American children into sociopaths.

The island's state-run media also took a dig at the CIA's real-life efforts to do in the island's revolutionary leader, who has survived dozens, perhaps hundreds, of attempts on his life.

"What the United States couldn't accomplish in more than 50 years, they are now trying to do virtually," said an article posted on Cubadebate, a state-run news website.
