You would have to have been living under a rock to not know that the latest Call Of Duty dropped today (well, last night after a last minute decision to drop the game early in Australia).
A handful of reviews dropped overnight and they’re mostly positive so far. With servers only going live yesterday, these reviews were all conducted at a review event that Activision held a few weeks ago. Ewan has just started working on our review and it will be live sometime next week.
So far, the game is sitting at a 89 on Metacritic (only 8 critics so far), but this is way higher than the last three games. Call Of Duty WWII is sitting at 79, Infinite is sitting at 77 and Black Ops III is sitting at 81.
Game Informer gave the game a 9.5/10 and said: “Blackout is the best battle-royale experience available today, zombies offers crazy customizable co-op, and multiplayer keeps things grounded for those looking for the classic core.”
Ausgamers gave it a 9/10 and said: “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a pleasant surprise. While it’s lacking in any major offering for those wanting a campaign to play through, everything else is refined and iterated on in meaningful ways. Blackout is a blast, traditional multiplayer is as good as it’s been in years, and Zombies is insanity in all the right ways. Minor concerns aside, this is the best Call of Duty package I’ve played in a long, long time, and think the trade off of a campaign for Blackout — something I was more than surprised by — has been well worth it.”
TrueGaming gave it a 9/10 and said: “Black Ops 4 takes multiple ideas from other modern shooters today which breathes new life into the series making it an ideal multi-player First Person Shooter that presents something special to its fans despite their diverse preferences.”
