Back 4 Blood has many frustrating moments with its numerous hordes and unbalanced difficulty spikes. Besides, it's quite repetitive and has a weak story. Its card system only starts to get more interesting after practically finishing the campaign at least once. In the end, Back 4 Blood is only suitable for those looking for a cooperative experience and who would overlook the points mentioned.

At its best, Back 4 Blood offers a ton of variety to keep you and your friends interested for a long time. Even returning to levels you’ve already played gets interesting thanks to different cards, which can make major differences in how things play out. If you have three friends to play the whole game with, I highly recommend it. That its available as a Game Pass title is awesome because you can get a group of friends together without them all having to buy the game. If you don’t have that group though, a poorly balanced solo mode and issues with matchmaking will sink this one for most.

Back 4 Blood is an exceptional FPS that sets a new standard for co-op zombie murderfests.

Back 4 Blood doesn't nail all the twists it attempts, but a creative card-based progression system, fantastic campaign, and lighthearted tone make it a fun spin on a familiar genre.

If you're an old Left 4 Dead player, Back 4 Blood will bring back memories of the long play hours you've spent with this fun series, its spirit hovering around Back 4 Blood with new additions to the card system that offers greater diversity, and will add fun and longer life to the game, with full Arabic support in the MENA region.

While it never forges its own identity, or escapes the shadow of Left 4 Dead, Back 4 Blood provides a great cover act, that captures all of the original series' magic.

Back 4 Blood is brilliant, co-op fun, with an interesting card system, but it's marred by terrible bots, awkward solo campaign choices, and a lackluster PvP mode.

Back 4 Blood shines when playing with others and has enough systems, spooks, and FPS fun to make players want to come back for more
