Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Black Ops 4 is a forward-looking release from Activision, abandoning the single player campaign for a robust, deep multiplayer experience and a smart take on the battle royale genre in Blackout.

Game Info

Black Ops is back! Featuring gritty, grounded, fluid Multiplayer combat, the biggest Zombies offering ever with three full undead adventures at launch, and Blackout, where the universe of Black Ops comes to life in one massive battle royale experience featuring the largest map in Call of Duty history, signature Black Ops combat, characters, locations and weapons from the entire Black Ops series.

8.5/10

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.

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.
