    It is mechanics that glue Black Ops 4 together, then, rather than any particular theme, which helps each component drill down into what its good at. The competitive multiplayer can afford to be break-neck at all times, because you can happily nick off and play the more languid, tense and tactical Blackout.

    Black Ops 4 takes multiple ideas from other modern shooters today which breathes new life into the series making it an ideal multi-player First Person Shooter that presents something special to its fans despite their diverse preferences.

    Black Ops 4 is easily the best Call Of Duty has been in years. The game plays almost flawlessly, and despite it not having a single player campaign still offers lots of content including the new Battle Royale mode Blackout. The only thing keeping Black Ops 4 from a perfect score is that the multiplayer maps, while being well designed lack originality and rely too heavily on remaking the past. If you haven’t played Call Of Duty for a while, Black Ops 4 gives you plenty of reasons to return.

    We are missing its campaign, but our tears will be wiped by the excellent Blackout mode or its expanded multiplayer or coop options. A great Call of Duty if you are one of those that weren't into its single player campaign.

    Despite its generic title Black Ops IV feels like a fresh start for Call of Duty. The multiplayer and the zombie mode is very much the same as always, but with Blackout, Treyarch takes everything that is good with Player Unknown's Battleground and makes it better.

    Black Ops 4 is one of the best Call of Duty games to date. The multiplayer and the Zombies experiences are excellent, but Blackout needs more personality and a different economic model to try to steal Fortnite and PUBG players.

    It’s not that I can’t respect it — it seems to offer decent value in that it’s essentially three different types of shooter in one package, but aside from the new Blackout mode, I’ve had significantly better experiences from many of its competitors. And honestly, Blackout’s main competition is a free-to-play game. It may be better than Fortnite in my opinion, but sixty dollars better? I’m not entirely convinced about that, and without a decent singleplayer campaign attached, it’s a pretty hard sell for anyone who isn’t already a fan.

    Wow!!! I didn’t think they were able to pull it off but black ops 4 proves that cod can still provide the action and gritty war game that fansWow!!! I didn’t think they were able to pull it off but black ops 4 proves that cod can still provide the action and gritty war game that fans want. Blackout is on a whole new level and great addition to the game multiplayer comes back and is still great, and the zombies is fun and challenging like we’ve never seen before. I can’t say this is the best cod game to come out recently but that doesn’t mean anything to the fact that it is great!! Expand

    Also: It is $60 even though it doesn't have a lot of features, but treyarch are always working to add on to it, there are some games with barely five hours of story with no online and get praised

    Unfortunately, I had very big issues with this game, and I believe it to be a stain on the black ops series. The decision to remove a campaignUnfortunately, I had very big issues with this game, and I believe it to be a stain on the black ops series. The decision to remove a campaign mode was nothing short of a huge mistake, as part of what has always made black ops great was it's gripping story mode. Secondly, the zombies mode, which has always been a fan favorite, was nothing short of butchered. It was stripped away of everything that made it fun and enjoyable, while overwhelmingly being filled with bad stage designs, the removal of perk machines, countless constant boss battles, and other useless trinkets. The multiplayer mode was mediocre, as was blackout. I do not recommend this game; Easily the worst call of duty ever made. Expand

    8 months into the game they decided to start hiding new weapons behind a paywall. and not a cheap one at that. Not only do they do this but8 months into the game they decided to start hiding new weapons behind a paywall. and not a cheap one at that. Not only do they do this but the weapons are completely OP and game changing, making the game so unenjoyable that me and my squad who have played together since day 1, no longer have the desire to play at all. It's pretty pathetic. Expand

    Es una pena en lo que se ha convertido Call of Duty. No poner un modo historia formal apostando solo por el multijugador online que antes eraEs una pena en lo que se ha convertido Call of Duty. No poner un modo historia formal apostando solo por el multijugador online que antes era un complemento en el título de cada año. Además, obliga al jugador a pagar el servicio online de la consola. Solo le venden al público que ya tiene posicionado su producto. Sus ventas se deben a que copió el modo battle royal. Hay un parche de 50 GB como si el disco del juego que uno compra estuviera vacío.

    In English
    It's a shame what Call of Duty has become. Do not put a formal story mode betting only on the online multiplayer that was previously a complement in the title of each year. In addition, it forces the player to pay for the console's online service. They only sell to the public that has already positioned their product. His sales are because he copied the battle royal mode. There is a 50GB patch as if the game disc that you buy is empty.
