Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Reviews Summary

Solid Battle Royale
Multiplayer Gameplay
Monetization

Summary: 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.

The best Call Of Duty of the generation and while some will bemoan the lack of a story campaign, it's hard to argue with the quality and quantity of content on offer.
