(CNN) - Former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega says a video game damaged his reputation.

According to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles, the game Call of Duty - Black Ops Two has Noriega’s likeness and shows him committing numerous crimes.

Noriega, 80, is serving out a prison sentence in Panama for drug trafficking and other crimes, and has served nearly two decades in prison.

No word from the game's maker, Activision Blizzard.

The popular video game earned more than a billion dollars in its first few months on the market, now Noriega says he should get part of the profit.
