Review Summary

MightyCritic Consensus

Defying the franchise's tradition, Black Ops 4 does not include a single-player campaign. It makes up for that with some of the best multiplayer offerings in the series, including a fresh-take on the Battle Royale genre. Post-launch monetization dulls the experience, however.
