Ever notice why World War II had a fair contract system? Because these developers decided not to be greedy corporate leeches like Treyarch did. Treyarch are no better than Activision and people supporting this game are also supporting gambling, ripping off consumers, brainwashing kids into wasting money and half made games to get that extra dollar. EA has crumbled through their fans taking a stand and not buying Star Wars and Battlefield 5. Treyarch fans should take a note out of EAs book. Take off the nostalgia goggles and see that all you are buying is Black Ops III that is

    (1) Ripping off other trends to stay relevant (e.g. Fortnite, Overwatch, PUBG, Rainbow Six Siege)
    (2) Gradually reducing original content (a whopping 7 remakes this game including Season Pass content)
    (3) Still using an outdated Season Pass model whereas other developers have dropped this unethical trend
    (4) Pushing loot boxes onto a $100 game for multiple modes
    (5) Taking a mode which Fortnite did for free and charging for it
    (6) A 55gb day one patch for yet again server drops
    (7) Clear cut evidence of no money being invested into a better engine. Graphics look worse than Black Ops III (slow rendering, dull colours, poor textures), game mechanics are worse than Black Ops III (lag, bad hit detection) and so called skill based match making is shocking (joining already half finished games and being paired with the 5 worst players against the 6 best)

    I don't know how people support this money soaking trash. Treyarch has been ripping you off since Black Ops II when they put a weapon in the Season Pass. Then it turned to gambling supply drops with no odds shown for getting a weapon. Now it's taking free game modes and charging them whilst shoving Black Ops II and III tactics in your face as well. Black Ops V will force you to pay to play on the Call of Duty servers if the sheep continue to devote to this mediocre company

    COD BO has always has the best COD campaigns. Sigh. Oh well I guess 12 year olds have a lot more time/disposable (parents) income to spend on the microtransactions/ and "we'll only show you this if you spend...". A frenetic failure, imo. Wait for Battlefield.

    Strikes me as being an absolute load of over-hyped rubbish during first hours play. What's the massive load wait for Battle Royale? Multiplayer still not loaded after 2 hours despite cable connection.

    Then when you get in a rehash of all the old maps.
    Someone's being conned here folks.

    POOR with a capital P!

    Why are people who praise this game taking shots at people who dislike the game? It's blatantly obvious you are being ripped off by investing over $100 into an unfinished product. Fans have a right to be mad about the omission of the campaign and still be charged full price. Blackout does not validate the price tag since Fortnite has a Battle Royale mode for free.

Fans have a right to be mad about the omission of the campaign and still be charged full price. Blackout does not validate the price tag since Fortnite has a Battle Royale mode for free.

    The specialist missions are short, boring and serve no purpose other than being a tutorial on how to press 'L1 + R1' for your luck based ability that requires no skill to use. Multiplayer has only 10 new but mediocre MP maps. Making remakes is a lazy excuse to fill up a diminishing roster of garbage maps.

    Blackout itself is a solid mode but not worth the hefty price tag. I personally like vehicles and realistic gameplay over building. However, it is not worth a single dollar if another BR game is free.

    To Blundell and the Zombies team, bravo! You nailed Zombies again and are the only reason this dead beat franchise is even afloat. At least your remakes are genuine and have new storylines and content to the maps instead of being a straight up cut and paste like Multiplayer. The revamped perks system is a fresh perspective and the new cast are fantastic to play as. I like the historical approach to the new maps and the variety of Zombie villains. Zombies alone gets this game to a 1/10

    The schemes of lootboxes, overpriced games, season passes and lack of content at launch is a Treyarch special. It's time to stop them and their paid reviewers from encouraging dirty tactics. You don't see Kratos opening loot boxes to find his latest axe. Treyarch and Activision love rigging their little game of monopoly. They would sell Whitechapel Road without the add on Hotel for the price of Mayfair. Wake up and stop falling for their lies and schemes

    It's too expensive for what it offers. Between the zombies and multiplayer combined it feels much less than previous Treyarch titles. There's no campaign, and Blackout will get boring quick unless they add new modes to it. Without a campaign and achievement hunting, it takes away dozens of hours of quality gameplay where you can sit back relax and enjoy yourself.

    All maps are upscale models of old Black ops Games
    This feels like Black Ops 3.5 this easily could have been a season pass for BO3 not a full retail game.

    This game is incredibly boring and pedestrian compared to Black Ops 3. They think this is what people want, but 3 years down the road it will not have the community that BO3 has. In BO3 you could actually USE the map. You could customize loadouts for meaningful gameplay variety. In this game everything blends together and the maps are Swiss cheese. Very disappointed.

    The graphics on PC might have been good six years ago. Even with everything maxed out and still running at 60+ FPS, it looks pretty bad.

    Regular multiplayer plays like a generic FPS, nothing really exciting about it.

    Blackout is really disappointing, it feels like a poorly executed PUBG clone. I got second place my first match, and for the final one-vs-one we were both in the open strafing and shooting at each other. Again, nothing really exciting about it.

    I can't say much about Zombies mode, my play time was limited in it. What happened to the original Nazi Zombies from WaW? This feels convoluted. I do see other people really enjoying it, so it's probably just me on this one.

    I would comment on the campaign but there isn't one.

    If this title was $29.99 I would feel slightly disappointed. I feel really sorry for anyone who bought the $99.99 and above editions. I probably won't buy any Call of Duty title again.

    Only 10 new Multiplayer maps which look dull and uninspired; and they all have the same 3 lane design. Same hit detection, lag, server and playability issues. Rewarding bad play with participation trophies such as specialists. Bad gun design and sound effects. Cringe worthy quotes and emotes from forgettable characters.

    Blackout is okay but after a few games you have done everything. This mode should be a free downloadable game and not have a price tag like it currently does. It will end up like PUBG and burn to the ground by next year due to its price and more than likely decline in quality like regular Call of Duty games

    Zombies, great as usual. Really enjoy the variety of maps and new characters who are actually engaging to the player. 3 maps on launch is a treat and the new mechanics make the mode feel fresh and fun. Sadly one diamond in a pile of dirt does not make the dirt valuable as well.

    Activision and Treyarch's revenue strategies are appalling and need to be reviewed by gaming regulators. Loot boxes (gambling) in Multiplayer, an expensive season pass with less content, liquid divnium, Blackout content and ridiculous base price for half of a Call of Duty game.

    Treyarch could have been the saviour of Call of Duty but they are the cash grabbers who will exploit every person's wallet if they get the chance. If they cared they would have left Activision, they're in it for the money as well. I feel sorry for people like Jason Blundell who work so hard to make a fun game and it's ruined by the top corporates who seek to leak you of every dollar.

    How this works is each category gets a score out of 2, add all and that's the score out of 10

    Single Player: 0
    Multiplayer: 0
    Blackout: 1
    Zombies: 2
    Pricing/Content/Ethics: 0

    Overall: A lazy and uninspired effort by Treyarch. Black Ops 3 without the jetpacks and ripping off more trends to keep a dying franchise relevant. First they ripped Titanfall and Halo, now its Overwatch and PUBG. If it was going to be a cut and paste game, charge it like one and not like its God of War or Spider-Man. Buy whatever you want, but if you want to see change to what you buy and be charged fairly for what you play, you need to stop buying these unfinished products. $200 for all map content + additional money for Micro DLC and a 55gb day one patch for servers to play up. Poor form Treyarch

    The content does not justify the price tag. Especially since they cut the campaign mode. You can get similar amount of content in some free to play first person shooters. I'm not saying it should be free, but it definitely should not be the price it is. But don't blame them since they knew sheep would buy it regardless of what they added in to them, or didn't add.

How do you have a season pass where you can't buy the map packs seperately? How do you NOT have a campaign in a COD game even though the original COD 1 only had a campaign and has been a staple of the series ever since? That's probably because they know that Treyarch games are their highest selling COD games currently and will sell no matter what. It seems like they reused a bunch of assets and sounds from Black Ops 2 and Black Ops 3. Even a gun in the game sounds like the Peacekeeper! Reload sounds are the exact same as BO2! Pictures of scorestreaks are blury or look not properly rendered. Whole game just feels like a rehashed BO3, artistically.

    Alright, multiplayer. Its garbage, the worst multiplayer in the series by far. It feels like a hybrid of a COD and Rainbow Six Siege with the emphasis on tactical gameplay, which is not what COD is supposed to be. COD is a casual arcade shooter. High ttk doesn't work with fast movement speed, which is what COD has always had. Its incredibly frustrating to aim while someone is jumping around sprinting. Manual health regeneration is nowhere near as bad but it just seems pointless and unnessecary.

    Onto Blackout. Its not the worst BR I've ever played (That goes to Fortnite) but its certainly not the best. Most of the time you'll go 5 minutes without encountering a player and in the COD sandbox where since 2003 it has been based on shoot shoot shoot run shoot shoot shoot run that is incredibly boring. There's nothing new either that makes Blackout different from any other BR game either. I would say zombies are but they're taken from another part of the game. Vehicles? PUBG already has this.

    So that's my review on Black Ops 4, don't buy it or wait for a price drop. Currently right now you're better off buying Assassin's Creed Odyssey right now or something. Heck I would even recommend Destiny 2 Forsaken over this.

    Black Ops 4 is no doubt the worst Call of Duty game I ever have played. How the hell can they remove campaign!? It's some of the reasons I buy a COD game. So far the zombies sucks and multiplayer is even worse. The Blackout mode is in other words a waste of time since players today are so tryhards. After buying this game, I highly recomend to stay away from it.

    Blackout mode is just a cheap version of Battlefield. The developers promised the "best and most refined mechanics" in the trailer, yet the mechanics are terrible. You can't even destroy any buildings. This game mode lacks vehicle variety. There are no jet fighters, or any planes to be found. Zombie mode lacks innovation. The regular Multiplayer is boring and repetitive. The maps are about the same as the last game, with a fresh coat of paint.

    The worst part of this game is that it requires a 50 GB patch to play. That makes the physical copy pointless. You can play multiplayer and Zombies with bots and splitscreen offline. But what's the point of having any of that if you need Internet to play? Not everyone has good internet, and it's pathetic how anti-consumer the developers are. The CODs before WWII didn't required internet. I don't recommend this game at all. Internet required games are a disgrace.

I then didn't play it again for about 2 weeks, and when I did finally play it again, I couldn't bare more than a couple of hours. I just get sick of it, and hate practically every aspect of what it has evolved into. It's like all the previous bad COD's rolled into one, except they've tried to copy fortnight into it.

    The graphics, the combat, the playing styles and gameplay, the glitches, the lack of a campaign etc. They have even ruined Zombies, which used to be COD's only saving grace, up until the past couple, which have been getting progressively worse. Zombies is now ridiculous, with too many far fetched spells and complex procedures that make it too overcomplicated to be worthwhile. It just feels like a big mess.

    Save your money. Unless you are a massive fortnight fan, I suppose.

The maps are huge for how slow your character is (which isn't that bad of a thing), but they have super tight corridors and a huge variety of altitudes which make it terrible. Worst maps ever. Then the 150 health and record time to kill? terrible.

Because the tech is unstoppable in this game, from the specialist equipment to there weapons all the way to the scorestreaks. Objective game modes can just be dominated due to the tech.

It makes zero sense it's like either waste time shooting the tech and lose the game or keep dying by them and lose the game. Why was there an EMP in BO2 and BO3 but not BO4 when it takes place in between both of them it's like the universe just got dumb. Why isn't spectre in the game there is no silent specialist. Brings back old maps because they are lazy and the new specialist doesn't fit well with the old maps. PS4 gets the free content that should have been in the game before Xbox, it's just unfair and dumb. For a game that took 3 years to make it shouldn't be unfinished. Multiplayer is horrible. Zombies and Blackout are ok. Anticipated for no reason. Brought the 100 dollar edition and it took almost a month to get my cod points. The game just breaks every day, stuff comes and goes on a regular. It is by far the most uncomplete Call of Duty of all time, but the game is fun at times because it's Call of Duty. Expand

    Graphics are outdated. The game has a lot features that are from other games. The animations are bad. And it's the same thing every year. No innovation nothing original. One of the worst call of Duty ever made.

    I don't think i have ever rated a game a zero before, but this is such a backwards step and feature-lite 'package' with so little features that interest me to the point there is no reason for me to buy this, i feel compelled to give it a dead zero.

    My main grip with this game (such as it is), is the lack of a campaign/story mode.. this was the main and sole reason i personally bought these titles before, for the military themed campaign, without that, this just seems like a really lazy product and extremely poor value for money and money grab on the behalf of the publisher, and is now an empty shallow PvP only experience with a now obvious online reliant shelf life before it becomes essentially a glorifies mug coaster... without a campaign, this is a huge backwards step and something less, not progress, especially compared to the feature packed Black Ops 3, with two campaigns, Co-Op capable campaign and Split screen for all modes, this Black Ops (i don't even know why it's called Black Ops as its nothing to do with Black Ops operations) is an insult after such a comprehensive Black Ops 3.

    I hope this is not a sigh of things to come for Call of Duty, because if it is, i will never be buying a Call of Duty again.

    The main complaint about this game is no campaign. It was announced before the release that there would be NO campaign. Therefore, all these 1's and 0's hold no merit. This is probably the best ONLINE CoD since WaW. If you are looking for a single player game then this game obviously isn't for you. However, adding Blackout has given players another option to remove the monotony.

    PROS
    - Fun to kill zombies with friends
    - Nice visuals
    - Fun voice lines
    - Incredible Level design (especially titanic)

    CONS
    - Constantly crashes (it's beyond ridiculous for such a big company)
    - HUD is clumsy as **** (you get tiny arrows to see your friends in the map...they are really tiny and you see them ONLY if they are not in your camera's direction.
    - Fans knows there is no minimap, but why indicate poorly players positions ? Just go full "hardcore" or casual, but not a weird clumsy mix between both. (Tiny arrows when you look sideways...)

    - Interface clumsy as well ( Mode selection actually mixes between modes, maps, AND difficulty, all of them presented the same way with banners). Do you even game design ?

    - Secrets are fun...but when EVERYTHING is secret it just becomes retarded. Do you expect your players to dive into the code or something ? We want to play, not to get into Matrix. We need both classic objectives and secrets. Again. Game Design.

    - Not enough content for the price. (not mentioning bugs...)

    - Badly optimised.

    - Last but not least : Limited lifespan. When you get to wave 34, waves are so long you just want to turn off your PC and go play outside. It has no point, no endgame objectives. You'll get all possible upgrades by wave 35. Do it once and get bored.

    TLDR : Unstable game, too expensive, not enough content, clumsy interface and HUD..

The Multiplayer aspect is junk. The hitbox registration is so far beyond screwed up, the weapons are unbalanced as absolute crap.

    The only reason I'm giving this poor, sad excuse of a game 1 out of 10 is because the Zombies mode is actually okay. The new perk system takes time to get used to, but I am overall pleased with this part of the game.

    You remember when Call of Duty was one of the best franchises in the business? I remember the days, when you started Modern Warfare 1 or 2 and had a gripping story about war, ethics and what it does to the world.

    What you have now:

    Chasing trends from other games (Overwatch and PUBG)
    Selling a Season pass without the option to buy single map packs
    Blatantly lying about a bold new direction for the franchise
    Very dull weapon sounds
    No sense of progression
    Horrible Map design (3 lanes with very little variety)
    Almost no maps (10... whoop di f***n do)

    I could go on but in all honesty, I don't want to bore you with my personal frustration from a once great franchise. I pains me greatly that activision got their greasy paws on what was once a paragon of FPS shooters. This is not COD anymore, this is a hollow shell assembled from a soulless developer and publisher trying to make money of people that don't know any better. Do not buy this game, it's not worth 20 €. Don't help these greedy bastards make money and ruin other franchises, when Studios get bought. (The titanfall franchise will be the next one to get completely ruined mark my words)

In fact, the devs of PUBG took lengths to create a balanced game by removing "luck-based" items from normal gameplay. More often than not in BLOPS4, the winner of a Royale game comes down to "is their armor better than yours" I even recorded a gameclip of someone coming up a ladder in level 3 armor, me draining every round from my LMG into them, still shooting them as they got up to my level, and then they turn around and kill me in a few hits (apparently no lag detected). The lack of tactical options (ie not being able to switch firing modes, no leaning, etc) also makes this a subpar Royale offering. The attachments were also underwhelming except for what level of zoom you were using for a scope. The entire experience obviously feels more like COD than a Royale game. However, it does offer a much more enjoyable Royale experience for someone who wants to play a few games by themselves.

    On an Xbox One X with a new 55" 4K TV and HDR, the graphics were underwhelming and not much has changed. Even with the caveat that the graphics need to support 80 players in Royale, I just wasn't impressed. COD4 blew my mind, BLOPS4 just blows.

    Ultimately, the price does not justify the content and the flashy new Royale doesn't have the staying power or the draw to keep me coming back time after time.

    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.

    There is none of the innovation or creativity we usually see from Treyarch. Its a Microtransaction vehicle meant to see if they can get away with offering very little and making the usual CoD money.

    There are still hit detection and latency issues with Treyarch releases you dont see in other CoD games.

    Treyarch still has the best gun play but the new ttk plus the bad hit detection ruins what could have been a positive.

    Instead of being the usual highlight of the franchise, Black Ops 4 is not only forgettable, but unfocused and a step back for the series.

    If you MUST buy it, wait a week, There will be piles of "used" copies everywhere......

    Bl Ops 4 might end up being more forgettable the CoD "Ghosts" It feels like a soulless cash grab.

    Itll be the first CoD since before Modern Warfare, that i dont keep on my shelf forever.

    There are too many better games to spend your hard earned money on.

    Skip it, or at least wait until the price comes waaaaaaaaaaaaaay down.

    Go play Nier Automata--- its genius and will keep you busy longer than Black Ops 4

Lastly the multiplayer where call of duty usually shines but falls way short, multiplayer has added a few game modes completely inspired by other games and maps are just ripped straight out of older games in the black ops franchise there is very little amount of originality here. The weapons you start out with are some what terrible and it will take you a while to level up and some weapons like the ICR are very overpowered and overused to a huge extent I have experimented to see what was the most used gun by players and the ICR took the throne i found the two to three players in an entire lobby used a different weapon. Campaign was a no show in this call of duty making this call of duty odd in a way but the stories behind the specialists did seem interesting and i wanted to know more about them certainly they could have my a campaign on the specialists there back story's were just amazing, but do not replace campaign in any way. This game could have been so much more but falls short and feels like a black ops three re skin with a few extra modes added. Expand

There are barely any recognizable guns other than 4 or 5 and the maps are pretty boring. They clearly focused on the new Blackout game mode as they took most of the same assets from previous Call of Duty games to put in multiplayer and zombies. Speaking of zombies, they over complicated everything way to much. Now you can only have certain perks that you put in you class and you have set gobblegums whenever you want called “elixirs”. If they wanted to compete with Fortnite and PUBG, they should have just released Blackout as a free game instead of packing a half-assed multiplayer and a over complicated yet boring zombies mode only so the could wop the $60 price tag on the game. If I could get a refund, I would. For anyone considering buying this game, don’t or wait for a price drop for around $25-30. Expand

    Black out Mode being that its a BR game mode i have no interest in it. BR is to reliant on RNG and is not a game mode i will ever get behind.
    Being Part of the 30% that actually likes Story mode in Cod Games this game is just a true disappointment for the franchise for me.
    On a up note the game runs far better than Cod WW2 but will crash multiple times a day. This is due to the outdated and unstable game engine that only gets patches instead of being upgraded. If this franchise is to continue they will need a new game engine as their competitors have already made innovations in this regard.

    Not to mention the fact there is no single-player campaign or loot system (CoD WWII). It seems the only reason this game was even released was for the Battle Royale mode. That mode should have been a stand-off so that the rest of the game could come together.

Everyone who worked on this game, and allowed it to release like this should be ashamed of themselves. Multiplayer is an absolute mess with horrible net code, awful lag, small variety of guns, bad sound mixing, little to no customization, disappearing reticles, glitched menus, and much more. Oh, and not to mention that the majority of the maps are just Re-used maps from previous games. What a lazy dev team. Were the QA team on drugs? Because they did a horrible job and should never work in games again.

    This review is based off of the PC version.

    I would give this game 7.8 out of 10.

    I have been playing CoD since its first inception on the PC. After playing the SP I quickly became addicted to the MP aspect of the game. Joining up into clans and having my first taste of competitive gaming was amazing. I loved that I could mod the game to my liking and customize what I wanted in general servers.

    The first take away I have with BO4 is that it plays very well on the PC. More so then the last few CoD games. Everything feels natural and I can react accordingly which is great.

    The multiplayer feels like a more polished BO3 with references to past BO games. A few of the new maps do feel a bit like repeated versions of other CoD maps though unfortunately.

    Updated specialists' abilities and the way you can heal yourself are a good upgrade to the core game.

    While Blackout is very polished and retains CoD's signature gunplay, it lacks in bringing any innovation to the already saturated game mode.

    The graphics are as good as to be expected. There is nothing that really stands out and feels dated.

    The sound design is excellent though. A few corrections here or there and I would say they are perfect for a game like this.

    I will admit I have never been a fan of zombies but I do like the 3 campaigns they have. I actually got into them a bit more then I use to. I don't want to say much else or criticize because I know the mode has never been my favorite.

    The lack of an SP campaign is the major draw back for a CoD game calling itself BO4.

    If they would have just called it, BLACK OPS X... or ULTIMATE BLACK OPS... or seriously anything else I could have been okay with it. There is a VERY small storyline they have that lasts for about 15 minutes through cutscenes that are mixed with bot matches but that is it.

    Black Ops had a great storyline going and to say this is its predecessor … even given the multiplayer is just going to far.

    Black Ops 4 is almost like a best of all the Black Ops... but not quite.

    I feel like this game lacked direction in its making.

    It would have been great to have the m-16 from BO1 fighting in the Jungle level against some future solider with the gravity spikes. Instead they just kind of gave up on making it what it truly could have been. A best of collection of all of the Black Ops games we loved.

    Never the less... the game is great to play. The multiplayer has the CoD speed and fun you know and love. Blackout is great if you've never played a Battle Royale game before or have been searching for a more twitch based version. Zombies impressed me.

    BUY IF: You are a lifelong CoD fan and your main focus is on MP and want a CoD Battle Royale. You will enjoy the gameplay more then ever and if your a PC player, you will enjoy the optimization.

    DISREGARD IF: You are a casual CoD fan, like what CoD has to offer with SP and not a fan of Battle Royale. You will find this very repetitive to Black Ops 3, without any SP and no real innovation that stands out.

    I hope this was helpful. First review.

That is true for ingame, while the video sequences in BO4 are much more realistic. The gameplay is 100% arcade style, while the multiplayer maps are pure arenas instead of "combat areals", not to speak about the realism (bullet drop etc.). The awful color palette hurts the gameplay as well, not only regarding the avatars, but also the environment. Everything looks like in Ken & Barbie land, even the power ups and rewards.

    To me, there is very limited bonding with classics like BO1-2, BO4 is more like a chimera from Blizzard's Overwatch and the original Black Ops.

    One point cause they got the name of the game correct. Been a gradual decline in what made this franchise great. COD4 had it in terms of great MP - MW2 hit the sweet spot, then came the decline. Thought the franchise had now slowly plateaued in terms of mediocre MP but BLOPS4 seems to have found a new level, sorry no, a sheer drop into the realm of laughable, unrecognisable COD.

What on earth has happened to the game I fell in love with back in 2007? From first starting up multiplayer I had to turn off the awful dubstep lobby music. The new menu interface is horrible, pointless and a straight up copy of Destiny. Every gun pretty much sounds the same, theirs nothing unique about any of them. The gunplay isn't very good either, probably the worst of any COD game and I've played them all, but the specialist 'super powers' straight up ruin it for me, they're extremely cheap and completely destroy the balance of a gun battle, like the pistol with great accuracy that kills you with one shot, or the X-ray vision where you can see enemies through walls. I'm not bad at this game by any means, I just don't like it or what COD has become, I really can't take this game seriously with the glowing pink camos, the constant sound effects and people jumping around corners, this isn't the gritty, somewhat realistic war game I once loved. In my opinion Treyarch are responsible for ruining COD with Black Ops 2, ever since that game its become catered to kids. If you grew up on COD4 avoid this game, it will only make you sad. Expand

I wanna give this at least a 6 but can't due to the fact the game still influences CORNER CAMPING in all modes besides Zombies of course but it gets annoying...

    The Twitch streamer Avoidthingpuddle says it the best on the whole camping subject so find that clip on YT.

    You kill 2-3 players then heal up and run into a building for cover and low and behold some dip stick in the corner with a shotty that blows you away cause you have no more armor and they have been sitting there for 5+ mins to kill someone walking into the door or window. I've played many Battle Royal games and CoD seems to have it the worse for the camping DISGUSTING. Little chubby cheek kids camping cause they can't handle conflict.

    Another thing I hated about Blackout is the normal spawn of a rocket launchers gotta love dropping out of the chopper to just get rocketed from a building across the way while your fighting another player or two for the goodies. Like make rockets in supply drops only as it causes major imbalance at the start of the game. Thats why certain games have a lock out to certain weapons appearing only in Supply Drops.

    Next I wanna talk about the multiplayer as a whole the combat is really **** I feel there matchmaking algorithm is to place players that are starting out with people that are pros or have 40+ hours in the game already that just man handle you every turn of the way. They have a **** Copy paste system from black ops 3 the whole operator idea is TRASH. Rainbow Six Siege just does that whole idea better.

    The only real mode I found fun on this game was Heist. They really killed this game and its potential to being a game that kills PubG.

    The only thing this game has on top of pubg is the performance and hardly any lag.

    This is not a 10 out of 10 game so please if you are reading the 10 out of 10 reviews ignore them. This game is easily a 4-6 outta 10 if that.

The regular Multiplayer is boring and repetitive. The maps are about the same as the last game, with a fresh coat of paint.

    The worst part of this game is that it requires a 50 GB patch to play. That makes the physical copy pointless. You can play multiplayer and Zombies with bots and splitscreen offline. But what's the point of having any of that if you need Internet to play? Not everyone has good internet, and it's pathetic how anti-consumer the developers are. The CODs before WWII didn't required internet. I don't recommend this game at all. Internet required games are a disgrace

    Treyarch should be embarrassed for releasing this "game". This is truly nothing more than a expansion pack. Most of the maps are rehash of other black ops games.

This is an old issue, but you would think they would attach a fatigue meter to the jumps to slow the person down after 2-3 consecutive jumps. Graphics are good. Sound is fair. Game is a waste of money in the long run. If you are a COD fan like me just skip the Treyarch releases for now on. Expand

    this is the worst call of duty i have ever played. The multiplayer is so frustrating to play it almost made me break my controller, there is no skill any more its whoever have the better weapon wins the gunfight. And why the hell do they think they need unlimited sprint, if i want to play a game where you run all the time ill go play quake.

Anyone who rates this game higher than a 3 is either paid to do so or they need to go to the doctor because there is something wrong with there brain. Expand

    Let's be clear: I have never been a fan of the COD franchise.

    However: This game is really the first time that my experience with the previous titles doesn't matter, because this is NOT a Call Of Duty game.

    However: This game is really the first time that my experience with the previous titles doesn't matter, because this is NOT a Call Of Duty game.

    The developers clearly want to innovate where innovation isn't needed, and add features that appear lackluster and like quick cash-grabs.

    First of all, let's bring up the elephant in the room: the replacement of a campaign with a battle royale mode. This is certainly a hot topic, and one that not many are in favor of. This came as a disappointment to me, because while I love myself a good multiplayer shooter from time to time (Overwatch, Titanfall 2), my heart will always belong to single player experiences. Some may be fans of Battle Royale games, but here's the kicker:

    Battle royale takes almost no time to develop. After Epic Games realized that Fortnite: Save The World was a sinking ship, they threw together a battle royale mode in 2 months. 2 MONTHS. This combined with the fact that Blackout already incorporates assets from previous games in the franchise makes me wonder: Why did this take up SO MUCH development time that the campaign was scrapped?

    Of course, this would have been excusable had Blackout been refreshing to play. After 5 or so matches, you have done everything that the game has to offer. This is what plagues battle royale games, the repetitiveness and lack of replayability.

    Onto the multiplayer, which, in my opinion, is some of the worst the series has to offer.

    Map design is a flop this time around, with the same boring, three-lane maps that we have seen since modern warfare. Not only do all of these maps play the same, too many of them are blatantly copy-pasted from other games. A majority of them feel as if they were designed for advanced movement, but sometime in the development cycle, the developers realized their mistake, removed the jetpacks, and the maps were left to suffer.

    The overwhelming majority of the guns are all samey as well, both from an audio and visual standpoint. Now, I understand that the series must have similar weapons that are consistent between entries, but there could have been more effort to inject some creativity into the designs of the weapons. Like them or not, advanced warfare and infinite warfare had some of the most creative weapons in the series, because the futuristic setting gave them more creative freedom.

    The hero-shooter esque class system is also a miss, because it forces COD in the direction of a hero-shooter, but doesn't do so fully, and we are left with a half-baked experience that feels generally unpolished and unbalanced. Why do ability cooldowns not reset to zero when changing rounds? Why are there almost no supportive roles? Why is teamwork not a large enough factor in fights? Why are there no ability interactions/combinations? Why do all of the characters look the same, not allowing you judge how to approach each fight? Why is the Time to kill too high for a hero-shooter, but too low for a Call of Duty game? These were just some of the questions that I had to ask myself as I played, and i'm sure you will ask these questions as well.

    The zombies, as expected, is a great addition. It meets, if not exceeds the footprint that BO3 left behind. There are just the right amount of easter eggs, lore, and character interactions that add up to a pleasant experience that will be dug into and expanded upon as the next year progresses. And, 3 maps at launch is just the icing on the cake, it's the cherry on top.

    Next up: the monetization. The Black ops Pass is inexcusable, especially since we are in an era when consumers are as educated as we will ever be about the impact that companies such as EA and Activision are putting on the gaming industry.

    Having convenient spending options for your consumers will never be a bad thing, and Activision has overwhelmingly demonstrated this with the Black ops Pass. DLC has always been a feature in COD, and it has been passable up until this point. With the black ops pass, it's all or nothing, either you're in, or you're out. You can either shell out 50 dollars, or you get virtually no content on the side. This begs a couple of questions:

    Why couldn't we have had smaller, yet individual DLCs, priced at 3.99 to 9.99, for each map pack/zombies map/weapon bundle?
    Why does Activision constantly screw over their consumer base?

    A few other, minor complaints:
    -UI is bland, and the cursor on PS4 is unnecessary
    -Same overall artstyle/engine as BO3
    -Lack of classes/characters compared to other hero-shooters

    Overall, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is another entry in the COD franchise, though its designers want it to be everything but, including Fortnite, CS:GO, Overwatch, and Rainbow 6: Seige. It ends up being a jack of all trades, and master of none, if you will.

    If you preordered or bought this game on day one without waiting for a review, I pity you. Learn your lesson and move on.

    The zombie mode is underrated but that's about it. This is identical to Fortnite in many ways except the old black ops fanservice. I hid until the end and got into 2nd place. Is this the type of game that people think requires skill? It's mostly luck honestly.

    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.

    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.

    With no campaign to test your trigger finger, the trio of a safe (albeit polished) battle royale, waning multiplayer, and rotting Zombies make BLOPS4 feel like a relic next to a post-Forsaken Destiny 2. [Issue#156, p.94]
