“Black Ops 4 has a few rough edges, but any of its three modes make for an enjoyable shooter experience that feel distinct and personalized.”

8/10

“The best Call Of Duty of the generation and while some will bemoan the lack of a story campaign, it’s hard to argue with the quality and quantity of content on offer.”

Erik Kain (Forbes)

9/10

“If you’re only here for the campaign, there’s no reason for you to buy Black Ops 4. But if you’re a multiplayer gamer and enjoy battle royale games, there’s plenty of great, addictive content to keep you playing for months on end.”
