    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a game that looks at the entire first-person shooter genre, past and present, takes all the best ideas, and assembles them into what feels like the easiest to recommend shooter I have ever played. The only caveat to that recommendation is that some gamers will find themselves absolutely ignoring two thirds of what the game has to offer, and that makes me wonder if a different model of monetization would have been better suited for what feels like a collection of three different games.

    The title features more modes, settings, and ways to engage than any game in the series I can recall. The blazing new Blackout mode steals the zeitgeist of the battle royale’s thunder, packaging it in a polished, powerful entry to the burgeoning genre. If you’re willing to eschew single-player completely, the payoff is worth it.

    Even if lacking the the trademark narrative pillar of the series, CoD: Black Ops 4 manages to deliver an impressive and content-filled package with a more tactical and grounded multiplayer, a way improved and rich Zombie mode and probably the best - and definitely the most polished - Battle Royale mode available today.

    In pruning the campaign from its suite of modes, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has discovered a renewed focus on the nuts and bolts of what most players demand from Activision's undying shooter series. Blackout is a superb addition, in which Treyarch improves upon the battle royale formula, ensuring the gamble in losing single-player ultimately pays off.

    Black Ops 4’s rough edges do hold it back from an even better execution of its best moments, but when you’re not experiencing those technical issues, any of Black Ops 4’s three modes make for an enjoyable shooter experience that feel distinct and personalized.

    With three strong and well-designed online experiences, Black Ops 4 is a fantastic and addictive experience for young players. Its own Battle Royale called Black Out turns out to be better than people expected and could establish a new direction for this popular genre. A must-play for Call of Duty long time fans.

    PUBG keeps it simple but is riddled with performance issues and is too slow; Fortnite works well, but is too busy for me and takes too long to get to the real action; Blackout is just right, and the best battle royale game on the market.

    Best COD ever.
    Battle Royale - Played PUBG for over 400 hours, didn't care too much for Fortnite. Won't ever touch PUBG again, shooting mechanics can't be beat in BO4.
    Multiplayer - Heist mode owns, Counter Strike style cash buy system with no respawns. No jetpack, wall run BS, boots on the ground with modern setting, the traps add more variety to the gameplay.
    Zombies - Looks good, hard to stop playing BR or MP to give it a decent try.
    Campaign - Who cares that it doesn't have one, seriously go play your nofriendo switch.

    this game is great and really great fun with friends. i loved the zombies and while im tired of battle royale it give a nice and differantthis game is great and really great fun with friends. i loved the zombies and while im tired of battle royale it give a nice and differant taste then anything on the market. but why i bought the game was multiplayer, which has flaws like some of the other modes. the main thing for me is balancing issues that where in the beta but ignored by treyarch for the game release. some guns are just to good even for a COD game. Battle Royale is great but gets old after a while for me as the game is the same, just differant landings and stuff. i think this game is worth my money but i beleive that some will hate it because it isn't you traditional game. if your actually tired of the same formula for multiplayer then this is it. most of the game also runs great but sometimes just lags, or even freezes. these are only bugs in the first day that i saw and should be adressed in a couple days. i think you should deffenately try this game but dont get your hopes up.

    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.
