  • Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 Reviews Roundup - What The Critics Think

    29 days ago - By GameSpot

    The fall release season means the biggest games, and it doesn't get much bigger than Activision's annual Call of Duty franchise. This year revisits one of its most popular series with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. But for the first time in the long-running franchise, this one eschews a single-player campaign altogether in favor of more multiplayer modes and standalone stories with each of its operators. Reviews are rolling in, and the conclusion from critics appears to be that the lack of a traditional campaign hasn't hurt the total package. Our own Black Ops 4 review found that the three...

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - Blackout Review

    29 days ago - By IGN

    The monumental highs of victory and crushing lows of narrowly losing in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout are experiences I've had in other battle royale games before, but the road to these memorable moments highlight a significant leap in gameplay fidelity and polish for the genre. Call of Duty's responsive and forgiving gunplay, nimble movement, and creative but practical equipment fit beautifully into the trendy last man standing format. It's not just a one-way street though, as the dynamic battle royale setting provides some much-needed variance and consequence to Call of Duty's at...
