During the summer of 2014 Treyarch got sued for depicting former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Back then the courts dismissed the case, but that isn't stopping someone else from trying the very same thing.

Now the family of the departed Angolan rebel leader Jonas Savimbi have played the over-three-years-old game and filed a lawsuit against Activision over his portrayal. According to The Guardian they claim he's depicted as "a big halfwit who wants to kill everybody".

You meet Savimbi during the very first mission in Black Ops 2, Pyrrhic Victory. Here he tells his troops to kill as many opponents as possible, while handling a grenade launcher. Maybe not the ""political leader and strategist" the Savimbi family claim he was.

The lawsuit is against French branch of Activision Blizzard, and the family is seeking €1 million in damages.

REVIEW. Written by Mathias Holmberg

"It's made up of some of the most boring missions in the history of the franchise...at times this feels like a pastiche - a parody."
