    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

    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

    This is not a bad game.
    But i can't figure out why it's impossible to play an online match in this game.
    I mean, i'm playing by using a 3,5k$ PC, i ping 4ms google, i have 320mbps of bandwidth, and obviously an open NAT.
    WHY this game is so buggy. WHY?? I am able to play one time out of 10, and every time an error occurs i have to RESTART the game.
    I already uninstalled it for desperation.
    I get a different error every time. I have to setup graphic and control settings every time i start the game because it doesn't save the settings (yes i click apply button).
    some time ago I reinstalled it multiple times (the game is 140gigs) and run the error-correction feature in battle.net launcher but nothing...
    I feel angry not for the game, but for the company that products it and sell it. I mean, Treyarch and Activision, do you know something like beta-testing and debugging?

    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
