    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.

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

    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

    Poor Quality for a high price game.

    For me the game feels poorly designed and rushed due to the reason to get a nip of the cake(battleroyal trend). Diffidently the last Call of duty i will buy since the last one which was the first black ops. sadly to see ones great game go down the drain.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Es un videojuego mediocre en todo sentido, plagado de MICROTRANSACCIONES que lo único que busca es vaciar nuestros bolsillos. Es un videojuego que solo está a la altura de un juego móvil pay to win. Expand
