EA's Medal of Honor reboot isn't the only FPS game raising eyebrows this season as Treyarch's Mark Lamia has said that "there are definitely some controversial topics" in Activision's upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops.

The game takes place throughout history, covering the Cold War era and the many black and deniable ops that took place during that time period.

"We cover the Cold War era and there are definitely some controversial topics in there. But I look at it as creating a piece of entertainment and we are strong advocates of creative freedom," said Lamia.

"Our game is entirely fiction-based "“ we're not doing a historical recreation. We do our research and create that setting so you can immerse yourself in it but that's just a backdrop for our narrative.

"Our story weaves itself around all kinds of controversial historical periods, but there have been many books and movies that do that, so to single out games in that way seems unfair."

Call of Duty: Black Ops is out November 9 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC.
