Is this game any good? …
I despise it! I love the idea of looting to outfit your character and hunting a huge map for others. However, I hate spending 15 minutes getting myself well equipped only to be blindsided or sniped... or beaten by someone with a shotgun who has been hiding in a closet for the whole game. Once killed, it's over... you're just spectating which is no fun.
They really need to change things up. Here's my suggestion: Instead of last man standing, first to 10 kills wins. Once killed, you randomly respawn minus your gear, but what's left of it after being picked over is retrievable. Add GPS tagging to certain gear. If your killer looted your weapons, he is marked on the map for you to take your revenge. This would make for much more interesting solo games and more fun for poor players.Regular MP:
It's still COD. Being spawn killed sucks; being killed through walls with FMJ sucks. I'm working on my 3rd prestige, but still getting my ass handed to me... It's still fun though.SP Campaign:
NONE! I've completed every previous COD on Veteran. The stories are forgettable, but that campaigns were usually enjoyable. I miss it.Zombies:
Until now, I've never been a big fan of Zombies mode. Surprisingly, this is the most fun I've had with BO4. It was expanded this time to three base maps to make up for lack of a SP campaign. Last night I had a blast making it to round 54 on the map IX; It took 4 hours. I enjoyed it so much that for the first time ever, I sprung for the season pass which includes 5 more zombies maps (3 unreleased).
In summary, Blackout is disappointing but BO4 as a whole is better than expected and monopolizes much of my free time... and my backlog of great games continues to grow.
