    A great entry into to Black Ops storyline. It gives an interesting view of the time, has a compelling storyline, and leaves you wanting more.

    Black Ops Cold War keeps the standard high despite the difficulties of development this year and continues to be one of this year's must-have shooters.

    For some reason, I always have a preconceived notion that I won't enjoy this year's Call of Duty. How can a series that releases every single year without fail possibly maintain a consistent quality bar? There are detractors who'd say it doesn't, but let's be honest – it does. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is very good.

    One of the best Call of Duty games in long time. It had kind of bad launch, but it's way better now. Can't wait for COD 2021, hopefully WW 2 !!!

Every time I log in it down loads something despite being a massive file size to begin with, I am assuming these are hot fixes fro the shear amount of issues that result with launching a unfinished game, Runs like a three legged cat, constant frame jumps, lags, and glitches and that was just in the opening cinematic scenes. I am not going to mention the story as people seem to care about it but I don’t, the gameplay is ok but is plagued with freezes, glitches and frame jumps. Multi player, broken in so many ways. Hit boxes are all over the place damage seems to be random, full health enemy’s either die from one shot or are bullet sponges usually the latter probably due to the net code. Movement is awful, the maps are lazy and unfinished I keep getting stuck on random bits of unfinished or invisible Furniture, spawns are ####ed on the smallest maps and you will either get trapped with the opposite team spawn camping you to death or you will get spawn killed repeatedly with nothing you can do about it. The menus don’t work half the time you just see gray blobs where the weapon skin or operator should be. Surprise surprise the only thing that works flawlessly is the in game store, funny that. Match making can take forever. Seems to have taken a massive step backwards from modern warfare.

    I don’t play BR

    Zombies good fun easily the best bit of the game, they should just release it as a 10 dollar stand alone game every other year. Could be a good game if they had bothered to finish it before release but why bother, just chuck it out the door and fix it on the fly so we can make a **** zillion dollars. This game sums up all of the problems with modern AAA studios.

    Constant friezes in the campaign, problems with sound when you turn on the overlay, management: the worst in the series, the sensitivity ofConstant friezes in the campaign, problems with sound when you turn on the overlay, management: the worst in the series, the sensitivity of the sticks on the gamepad is almost impossible to configure( I couldn't, because read more MP), constant jerks(sniper rifles) graphics and everything else is backward, and now multiplayer. Visibility is disgusting, operator skins are invisible, everything is the same as in MW19. Network code is **** up. ping 60, but the breaks are constant (RU) everything lags, you lag yourself, players teleport, kill in seconds(on the replay for 3.5 seconds) with" mega bullets " that the body throws away. just disgusting. Well, everything else exclusive buns for PS. tnx fukk. I will request a refund on Monday. This is my first Call of Duty refund

    This game is absolute trash don't buy it especially on the Xbox One. The cut-scenes are also garbage and lag (Yes the cut scenes LAG lol). TheThis game is absolute trash don't buy it especially on the Xbox One. The cut-scenes are also garbage and lag (Yes the cut scenes LAG lol). The story is eeeehhh ok. But the main of these "COD"games are its multiplayer modes. 1. There is no indication or that green connection bar i was used to playing with.2 The matchmaking is absolute garbage, and pits you in with players 3 times the skills of your own. 3.Snipers are over powered and in a way so is the knife. So i am shooting hitting this guy multiple times through his body, and he comes up with one swipe of his knife boom dead lol. Yeah im sorry but thats trash in my book. But snipers? Snipers are the worst. When you look at their kill cam, when you get killed they don't even aim. Also one time i remember only my head was visible, and this guy (from what i seen from the kill cam) just lifted his gun and it was automatically on my head didn't even have to aim.. Thats some straight up BS and you have cheaters (especially the PC ones) .Anyways its not the worst Cod game, but its definitely one of the worst ones. Also the zombies are not that good, maps are WAY too big. Just not for me i guess. Expand
