Last minute Christmas gifts: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – A review in collaboration with www.topgametech.com
The excitement level reached fever pitch as I clasped the beloved Call of Duty in my hands. After a two year break from Call of Duty, getting back into the saddle was going to take some getting used to. But I was up to the challenge. Having been hooked on Modern Warfare, and mastering Black Ops before, there were certain elements of those games that had been carried onto the latest instalment.
The game play is extraordinary where the game has evolved over earlier versions in which key characters, each with their own special abilities, are key to how a game is won, particularly during multiplayer. Creating a barricade with Torque to protect your team mates, to using Ruin who has the ability to destroy every player in a given radius, and the use of Recon crucial for counter intelligence throughout with the ability to mark enemy location, are great things about the game.
Only thing to watch out for is that frag or stun grenades are no longer given at the start of the game level 1 and can only be acquired once you’ve reached level 47, which is tough as we know that in the real fighting world troops are given grenades whether they’re rookies or not.
Overall https://www.callofduty.com/uk/en/blackops4/buy has all the ingredients of a high octane, rip-roaring and visually stunning game, an absolute must have in any true gamer’s collection.
