Critic Reviews for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Cold War is an inessential distraction from the best Call of Duty on offer.

Cold War's quiet times are more memorable than the loud ones, even if the story's ambition outweighs its execution.

At launch, ahead of the release of the game's first season, Black Ops Cold War is a good shooter and a wonderful achievement, but it is far from being the great competitive multiplayer shooter it should be. I'm confident it can get there. Modern Warfare ended up with some fantastic updates during its first year of life, after all. So I'm sticking with Black Ops Cold War - for now.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's Zombies mode has some of the best moment-to-moment gameplay in the series but its single map and lack of split-screen multiplayer sap its endurance.

This year's Call of Duty multiplayer is somewhat of a backwards step for the series.

Not a standout year for Call Of Duty, as while the campaign offers some fun action and minor innovation Zombies and multiplayer are beginning to feel very tired.

A Call of Duty title that reigns everything in and is afraid to try something new, Black Ops Cold War gets the basics spot on but doesn't have enough content to warrant the price tag.

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