While the campaign is extremely short and the new multiplayer modes don’t quite hit the spot, Black Ops Cold War is a laudable shakeup of the CoD formula, and a triumphant return of the Black Ops saga.

A laudable shake-up of the Call of Duty campaign formula, but Black Ops Cold War misses some targets.

November 13, 2020 |

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War serves up a great campaign, solid multiplayer with fresh spins, and the zany zombie modes that we’ve come to expect from Treyarch.

So far, Cold War offers a dynamic campaign and new wrinkles to multiplayer, as well as a promising use of PS5’s DualSense controller.
