    The online offerings is well enough to keep you interested. The game is split up into 3 main modes (Multiplayer, Blackout, Zombies) with a tutorial mode (Specialist HQ). Core gameplay is the same as past boots-on-the-ground COD games except HP is higher so more focus on skill and head shots. There are manual heals (compared to auto), so you have to choose between healing and reloading in tough situations Armor (Blackout/Multiplayer) and quick scope (multiplayer) tends to be the meta as of this review, but may change from patch updates and/or the community discovers something new to exploit --Specialist HQ. This basically a tutorial mode that explains each of the character class abilities for multiplayer. There is some background story cutscenes: ~30seconds prologue and outro for each character class. Now onto the 3 main modes: 1. Blackout A battle royal game similar to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) and Fortnight where you and 99 other players parachute down a plane to any point on the map to a survivalist game to see who can be the last person standing. The map is ridiculously large, having the border shrink every time the player count dwindles and/or countdown timer reach certain intervals. If you are outside the border, you constantly lose health, so you're constantly moving. You start off with no weapons/inventory and have to scavenge for them on the map. Every pickup is randomized throughout the map every time you play This game resembles PUBG more than Fortnight due to it's realistic, non-cartoonish setting. Unlike PUBG it's more polished and has less bugs and microtransactions (as of release, may change later??). Also the graphics are way better. Weapon/item variety are more generous in Blackout Character customization is limited as you can only select the gender and race of your characters. There are some some skins you can choose from, but have to be unlocked by completing certain objectives or reaching a certain caps. There's also character emotes/sprays, but i haven't seen anyone use them. There are supply drops, and zombie area on the map to get better loot, but it's a big risk/reward system There are 3 game types: Duo, Solo, and Team. All are essentially the same except Duo and Team consists of 2 player and 4 player teams respectively and has a total of 100 players compared to solo which has 88. === 2. Zombies There are 2 separate stories: one a continuation from Black Ops 3, and a brand new story involving time-travel. There are 3 maps (1 of which is DLC) Zombies are now faster, resembling more of Left 4 Dead series of games. Also have some new wacky enemy types A lot of easter eggs throughout. Like previous COD Zombies there's a lot of comic mischief and jokes character spill out as you play Core gamplay wise it's traditional COD, but with special weapons and elixirs. The latter of which is a temporary abilities booster which has a cooldown period before you use it again. Outside the story modes where you have to figure out how to progress, there's Rush Mode which is traditional horde mode where you don't have to focus on purchasing upgrades with in-game money/unlockables === 3. Multiplayer Traditional online multiplayer for COD. Less changed/new out of the 3. When you first start off, like recently released COD games in past years it's unbalanced until you grind for your desired loadout. This is because perks, weapon attachments and items are unlocked as you rank up. Seeing online is split between the 3 main modes, player selection is less forgiving than past years as you can have someone who played 100+ hours vs someone who just started playing. The game tries to balance this out by having one 100+ hour person and one < 1 hour person on each time for example. If one of the 100+ hour person is more skilled than the other 100+ hour, they may just wipe the other team out like nothing. But if you have "skill" then you can offset this. Other than that, you have to grind for your desired loadout/max weapon upgrades or...git gud. The way i see it, it's not about the wins, it's about learning from your mistakes and having fun, but that's just me. Nothing really changed since the last COD game except maybe some weapons, and maps (14 at launch with some retro maps) Game types include your traditional Team Deathmatch Free for All Search and destroy Kill Confirmed Domination Hiest Hardpoint Control You can also choose between core and hardcore modes. The latter having more restrictions, and more catered towards skill. As mentioned before, you get more health. This along with knowing all random spawn points/maps; differenitates more skilled players over the noobs. This mode is till twitch heavy close quarters first person shooter combat Overall, no matter how you stack it, you get a lot of quality content for the price, even if you play 2 of the 3 main modes. Each game mode can be a game onto itself.

    Blackout beta was alright, yet wasn't excited for this even after hundreds of hours in PUBG. I've played Zombies, Classic Multiplayer, and Blackout. All have strong changes from previous entries or other PUBG/BRs. Zombies has a freshness to it that the past few entries needed. Buffs, crafting, and special class abilities make this shine in BO4. Multiplayer has Heist which is similar to Counter Strike (buy your guns/perks via money after rounds with single life per round). Sounds like a terrible idea but it ended up really fun. This was a surprise and I have been playing this mode the most. Blackout has sound issues (currently) but gives you enough loot to not have to argue over anything with teammates like PUBG or Fortnite. Other than some balancing issues with armor/guns and microstuttering/large frame drops in the open areas with quick movements it's a pretty great BR. Be aware this mode only came with one map. Strangely enough this can be worth it on PC for some multiplayer/BR heavy people even though there isn't a single player. Again be aware there isn't a true single player campaign.

    I have not purchased a Call of Duty game in quite some time...not since COD Ghosts. I don't mind the part of there not being a single-player campaign, I normally focus on multiplayer. The overall experience has been good; only a few crashes but nothing to deduct a star. I feel like they are focusing on their strong suits and it is showing! There has been plenty of variety of maps, unlocks and game modes to keep me entertained thus far. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes a faster-paced battle royale mode, fans of classic COD style matches, and want a more robust Zombies experience. The only knocks that I have experienced are the imbalanced feeling of special abilities for operators but those can be tweaked. I feel like there will be plenty of support/patches in the future to address any concerns and to keep things polished (one launching today, October 19). My only concern with the PC version is the overall pool of players but we will see if the developers can keep hold of the PC community.

    So I walked away from Call of Duty for a few years because each year it came across as unfinished or to many new mechanics. This year I decided to try it again. Especially, since the PC version is integrated into Battle Net. Long story short...since buying the game I have tried reinstalling windows x 2, my graphic drivers x 17, Battle net Launcher x 4, and BLOPS 4 itself x 7. When the game runs its great. A bit annoying as any COD but a simple shooter..which I was missing in previous installments. However, on PC no matter what I do it perpetually crashes, black screens, or just closes itself. I'm on an 8th gen i5, 1tb ssd, 16gb of ram, GTX 2070 and my connection averages 35ms during a match. I honestly, don't know what is causing the issues but it makes the enjoyment of the match (if I get that much) not worth the back-flips to get into a match.

    I bought this game to play the meme royale mode but I've ended up dumping way too much time into multiplayer. It's COD like COD should be, just fast and getting shot from half way across the map with laser assault rifles. I'm really happy that someone at Treyarch decided it would be a good idea to make the most overpowered assault rifle and honestly most overpowered gun in the game right now the literal first gun you unlock. Genius, bravo, 10/10. But that's why it's good, we should expect these stupid things from COD by now. By mid-January 50% of the people that bought this game will hate this game and will have completely abandoned it for Season 14 or whatever of Fortnite/some other better completely new revolutionary battle royale game that is out by then. Maybe Red Dead 2 will be good.

    Falling short of it's obvious potential

    Don't buy this game. It's a wildwest shooter, where most kills can only be obtained by spray n pray. If your internet connection is better than the other guy's you may have an advantage. The game feels less skill based than previous iterations. BO3 as bad as it was, produced more satisfying game play. BO4 is seriously frustrating. You know you can do better, but the game won't let you. It has a lot of potential to be good though. They fixed a lot of stuff, and when it runs like BO2 or BO3 (the 2% of the time it does) it's really fun. It's just not enough to justify spending $45+ on yet. If you understand what you're getting and have reasonably low expectations you'll be OK with this. Would not recommend to a friend YET.

    I stopped playing cod once the whole jet pack thing started. I began playing competitive on BF4. But like every hungry money company they get greedy n try to release crappy games every year. Bfv just like bf1 are not battlefield games n have lost their way. So I decided to give cod another chance since they had battle royal. The game is phenomenal, no more jet packs n more of a realistic shooter. Multiplayer is great, if u enjoy cod games. Nothing has changed in that aspect. But battle royal is were is at. In my opinion the best battle royal out there. Easy to find weapons n action. Highly competitive, n addicting. Makes u want more every single time. The only reason I gave it 4 stars simply because they need to patch up some of the server connection.

    Purchase from Best buy great. Install and gameplay your on your own. After playing cod ww2 expected a little more from this game. Of course box has nothing but key code in and with download url. Due to not having campain like ww2 you are on your own to learn keys setup, and have guess how to play this game. Maybe is an age thing, but your own you own to learn gameplay. Still finding out from other player chat that there are YouTube videos out there to help to learn. I guess with a lot of trial and error (deaths), I will be able to catch up lol. I do like the maps, etc. So in time I will enjoy more as I have with ww2.

    I love this game series and was very excited to get the newest release, until I played it. There are a lot of glitches that should have been fixed prior to release. There is no notification button where you can alert the programmers to a problem like there has been in the past. I still love the storyline and graphics are fantastic, but when a glitch happens it completely derails the player. I feel the programmers rushed this version to get it out in the market for the pre-Christmas sales. If they go back and fix these issues, I would definitely give it a higher rating.

    Overall this game is fine - worth picking up if you're looking for some FPS action. Had to knock 1 star off just for the fact it seems to crash frequently - none of my other games do, and that's about the extent of my troubleshooting on that one. I haven't played a COD game in a while, this seems to feel just like the others which is kind of what most people expect - fast paced, people sliding and jumping around corners and killing you. Now that Battlefield V is out, I don't see myself going back to COD anytime soon though (but I've always preferred BF to COD).

    There’s little to zero issues with any part of this game. I love it. Used to hate cod for half baked ideas in the recent years but all around this game has been played by its own devs without any doubt. Solid aim solid power ups solid classes and there’s none of the flying unpredictable annoyances that just aren’t cod in this in any multiplayer mode. Also blackout mode is insanely good compared to pubg. Fine tune it even if you have a great graphics card to where it plays even smoother n butteryier. Overall just a lot of variety and a lot of fun. 10/10

    If you've played COD before then you really know what you're getting into. The new Blackout mode is pretty fun but it's not without issue. If you don't like bullet sponge games with a lower tick rate then you won't really be bothered by some of the issues that plague this game. Straight up multiplayer is fun as always though. Runs smooth on all types of hardware and it's very easy to get a locked 60FPS experience. Ran well on my old RX480 and my newere GTX1080 sleighs it!

    Poor eCommerce practice here. As i'm sure some of you found out - This listing has false pictures of the video game case, as their photos above do not show "PC Download Only". THIS IS NOT A PHYSICAL COPY OF THE GAME. Nowhere in this entire add is it stated that inside this case is a paper disc with a redemption code printed on it . There no reason why this could not have been online without wasting shipping cost, wasting paper and cardboard.

    It is a great game for the gameplay and content. But it has loads of connection issues, bugs, and crashing problems. On top of that the transactions and battle pass are one of the biggest cash grabs I have ever seen in a game. If you are buying just to play the game would be like an 8 out of 10, but if would expect to get any of the cool skins or DLC added to the game, expect to pay another 50 bucks minimum for the battle pass and essentially 10 dollars every time you want a new cosmetic.

    Even with the lack of a full fledged single player campaign this year; the online offerings are well worth the purchase price if you can get it on sale. The game is split up into 3 main modes (Multiplayer, Blackout, Zombies) with a tutorial mode (Specialist HQ). Core gameplay is the same as past boots-on-the-ground COD games except HP is higher so more focus on skill and head shots. If you do not like playing multiplayer, wait for a good sale.

    My PC is well over the recommended requirements for the game and I cannot go through one night of playing without at least one major crash or bug. It is also poorly optimized for PC so even when it's not crashing it's running like garbage. I gave it some time hoping they would patch it and while they did improve it some it's still nowhere near where it should have been to be sold.

    So, I have played some CoDs throughout the years, and I gotta say BO1 was one of my favorites games I've played so far. This game, brought so many things from that, BO2 and BO3, and most are good if you ask me. The new operators system, is not annoying and it really makes you choose different ones depending on how you want to play. I have been having lots of fun and I think anyone else can have fun too.

    Loving this new black ops. They did a great job bringing back some older maps for a fun throwback. They kept things pretty simple so there's nothing too ridiculous in the game mechanics. The only issue i have is that no-scoping is still a thing. I wish it was disabled as it takes away some of the fun and skill building in the game because so many people use that as their only weapon and one hit kill.

    First off, I play this game on PC with my siblings and its a great time. Three full featured modes ensure that you have plenty to do all the time. First you have your normal multiplayer, second you have their expertly made battle royale mode Blackout and last you have Zombies which is fantastic. On PC the game performs wonderfully. Buttery smooth. High recommended.

    I really like the Blackout part of this game. Huge map, lots to explore. Haven't tried zombies yet but looks fun. All the other stuff is superfluous to me but enough there to explore once I tire of blackout. They patch frequently enough, good griefer reporting system, offer different game modes on a rotating basis and haven't run into any hackers so far.
