    Overall, Call of Duty: Vanguard is a very welcome addition to the Call of Duty franchise. Sledgehammer has always helped drive the franchise forward into adventurous new territories and Vanguard is no exception. If you find yourself itching for a new FPS in your life, Vanguard is ready for you to pick up and is easy enough to drop into so that you’ll never feel out of place as a new player. If you’re wary about picking this game up because you’re someone who didn’t like the change from 2019 Modern Warfare’s engine to Treyarch’s in Cold War, then you’ll be happy to learn that this runs on Modern Warfare’s engine and the gunplay and visuals remain entirely intact.

    Call of Duty: Vanguard maintains the usual high level of production of the Call of Duty series, with an excellent cinematic narrative that allows players to have an audio-visual experience of being in the battlefield. The online content is also excellent, the new zombie mode has many good parts, but the thin content makes it difficult to retain players for a long time. Overall, it is still a popular FPS worth trying.

    Call of Duty: Vanguard clears the bar thanks to its convincing multiplayer, rich in content and with some new features such as the Battle Rhythm and wider environmental destruction, which reinforce an already solid gameplay. There is no innovation or revolution for the franchise, and those who have played the most recent games in the series already know what awaits them, but perhaps the secret of its commercial success will be precisely this.

    Multiplayer is the only reason to play Call of Duty: Vanguard, thanks to substantial online content and a satisfying competitive pace. Both the zombies mode and the campaign are tiresome, clichéd, and mediocre, best left out of the history books.

    With every new year, we get a new Call of Duty, and while this year's entry is decent, it's not essential. There’s still some good fun to be had here, but it never goes beyond expectations. In particular, Zombies in its current state feels like a lackluster step back. If you're an avid Call of Duty fan, Vanguard may still be strong enough to hold your interest, but if you've grown skeptical over the years, it isn't likely to bring you back into the fray.

    It’s hard to name a single thing about this game that’s worth your time. [Issue#257, p.54]
  7. In play, it is smartly dressed but simple, like a child of wealthy parents who can afford to be a bit dim.

    Great game-- I was waiting for a WW2 style game on IW's engine! Sledgehammer has been known to take feedback seriously and apply it.

    Seems like some people wanna act like Women didn't exist in 1940s, oh well. Anyway, great game, would highly recommend!

    Way better than last year's cod and obviously better shooter than battlefail2042. Would recommend to old and new cod fans!

    Ужасный сюжет (хуже даже русофобского сюжета MW19), как будто смотришь фильм от марвел. Команда расово верных героев, нелепые файты с ботамиУжасный сюжет (хуже даже русофобского сюжета MW19), как будто смотришь фильм от марвел. Команда расово верных героев, нелепые файты с ботами со слабым интеллектом в сочетание с кринжовыми заставками - вкусно! Сетевой режим играется лучше чем Cold War и в целом убить время было бы можно, если бы не бесконечные выборы лучших игроков в конце матча, которые нельзя скипнуть. В зомби режим не играл. Expand

    Une belle bouse. On touche le fond là malheureusement !

    Full sbmm, 0 innovations, campagne hyper courte et skriptée de partout, le zombie en dessous de tout, des annimations et des menus totalement repompés, graphiquement désolé mais c'est laid pour du fin 2021, bref ya rien qui va.
