The latest installment in Activision’s world-spanning Call of Duty series finally dropped in the early hours of the morning, which means it’s time to check out the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 critic scores. PC players can now access the FPS via Battle.Net, but if you haven’t bought in yet, we’ve got a helpful round-up of the internet’s opinions.
In our very own Black Ops 4 review, Jordan certainly liked what he’s seen so far. He says “Every year we get a Call of Duty game that’s brimming with new content and exciting changes, but nothing in recent years matches the scope of what Treyarch has achieved with Black Ops 4. Multiplayer and Zombies are the best they’ve been in a long time, but it’s Blackout that steals the show. When it was first announced few could fathom what a Call of Duty battle royale would look like, but sure enough I’m staring down the barrel of a COD game mode with, vehicles, bullet drop, a map 1,500 times bigger than Nuketown, and 100 players – all this and it runs more smoothly than any other battle royale game I’ve played.”
Head here to check out Jordan’s full Black Ops 4 PC review, but it looks like his feelings are largely matched elsewhere. Black Ops 4 is currently posting a score of 90 on Opencritic and 87 on MetaCritic, though it should be noted that many major outlets either haven’t posted a review yet or are waiting until the public servers go live (Jordan has played the game a lot, not just since we got code, but on various press trips).
Without further ado, here’s our round-up of all of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 review scores we’ve seen so far.
