    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.

    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.

    Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is one of the best multiplayer shooters of the year. Its new proposal and the Battle Royale mode make it a must of this generation.

    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.

    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.

    Deprived of its usual solo campaign, Call of Duty Black Ops 4 looks more like a patchwork than a whole, tight experience. Nonetheless, its multiple game modes, among which the first AAA Battle Royale, have enough to offer.

    Buy this call of duty, it's the best since 2009 and that's saying something, ignore the haters just because they could be bad at the game.

    While the game does have its saving graces, it does have a few bad things about it. The servers in blackout for one are absolute garbage,While the game does have its saving graces, it does have a few bad things about it. The servers in blackout for one are absolute garbage, secondly the connection between people in multiplayer and zombies are a bit annoying at times as it is not server based, it is pair to pair, I am well aware the game has only been out for a month so we should give treyarch time to fix all of the glitches and fix the servers, but 1 month to most including me is more than enough time to fix that kind of thing Expand

    Blackout is so boring. Zombies and regular multiplayer is fun though. Instead of playing Blackout for battle royale just go play PUBG or Fortnite.

    Both graphics and mechanics are better in BO3, which came out several years ago. This is the laziest slap job I’ve seen treyarch put out, itBoth graphics and mechanics are better in BO3, which came out several years ago. This is the laziest slap job I’ve seen treyarch put out, it looks like they scrambled last minute to throw a game together and tell us they’re releasing more updates as an excuse for why the game blue screens all the time. Spend your money on another game, especially if you already have BO 1, 2, or 3... ridiculous treyarch wants us to pay for the same maps 12 fking times. Expand

    Feels like they put all their apples into the battle royal which made the whole thing lackluster.
