Was anticipating this since the beta but they tweaked it to hell and I canít enjoy playing it. ADS is slow and I canít kill two players next to each other.

Rented this from Redbox (did the 3 days for $7 deal). Had the game crash so many times (including offline bots), I got a refund from Redbox and returned it a few hours later. What a dud of a game.

I have a rental copy shipped to be from Game Fly. I will check it out later this week and will probably return it quickly.

I'm really liking this for now. Blackout fuckin sucks, though. Just another PUBG battle royale; more hiding and waiting than actual combat or action. I do not have time for that.

The traditional MP modes are good. So far this is following the same pattern as previous games. I can hold my own for the first day or two, but after a couple days everyone is miles better than me.

I'm finding this fun enough... mindless running & gunning. It's a welcome break from the stressful Rainbow 6 I play way too much.

true, but III was also mindless running & gunning with the really cool specialist weapons and wall running (which I sort of miss).

I've decided to return my mystery box and I'll just occasionally play the copy I bought for my brother.

The wall running, boost jumping bullshit was what I hated. I've only played the MP at E3, but I liked it enough. Been mainly playing Blackout which is faster than PUBG, because you're forced to drop hot. Going to outlier little houses and shacks gets you little to no weapons, so when you need to advance because of the gas, you're running into people already kitted out.

Played the BR mode last night... hated it. I'll stick to classic MP for now.

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII (yes, IIII, not IV)

Well, if people were wondering when Call of Duty was going to majorly change, this is it. There is a ton lacking in the presentation department - so much so that I absolutely hated this game when I first started playing it but after a few multiplayer matches, I ended up playing for hours.

This is the first COD where you feel like you're part of a squad - there's 5 characters to choose from each with their own "2 set of skills". I prefer Battery as she gets a grenade and a grenade launcher - note that you have to fill meters before you can use either.

What makes multiplayer so fun is how fast pace and crisp it is - when you die you "feel" it more. When scorestreaks start going off the explosion are really felt.

People will be upset at the changes as while a lot of the traditional perks are back, things like being able to carry grenades are not - not until your at least a level 42....yes, 42.

I don't mind them removing the campaign at all but it's unfortunate that they had to waste the resources on the garbage blackout mode - I wish even more effort could have gone into the standard multiplayer alone.

Blackout: Blackout sucks, so there's the review on it - too bad they didn't try to be inventive and add to it instead of being like all the others - this shit-style of play is so damn boring - I don't get the attraction - feels like such a colossal waste of effort (not playing but by treyarch creating it).

There is actually a story mode - you play through the 5 main characters stories - they're short but there a bunch of cut scenes to view once unlocked and you get some back story on each but I have to say, shit is lame.

Zombies: I'll say what I say about every zombies mode since it was introduced: "Endless waves of boredom".

Maps: there are 14 - 3 of which are from the old black ops, Jungle, Summit, & I can't remember the other one right now. Some of the maps are really bad while others are pretty damn good.

The bare-bones music in treyarch's titles need to go - the presentation is so lacking - guess it doesn't matter too much as when you start to play, all gripes pretty much go away.

Customization: It's great, the detailed loadouts from infinite warfare and other black ops titles are back.

I really miss the headquarters from WW2 - this game really should have it since it's lacking in so many other areas, I mean, at least SOMETHING - blackout is just such a failure to me but it seems like that's where they put all their bank but I am glad the standard MP didn't suffer and only got better.

I am wondering what will happen with DLC releases with this game. I can see new characters being added for multi-player, definitely more weapons as well but I'm not sure what else they are up to - should be interesting.

I rented this from the library and have to admit, it's better than I thought it would be. I'm not very good at the multiplayer, but I'm still having fun most of the time. I do miss the single player campaign though. I still probably won't end up buying it, but will most likely rent it a few more times.

Also worth mentioning that it's the DOTD on Amazon today for $40.

It's $30 at Best Buy this week ($24 with GCU). I'm not much for Multiplayer games but at that price, I'm tempted.

I rented it a few times and got my fill. Unless you plan on ponying up another $50 for the season pass, the current maps started to get repetitive to me.

I was peer pressured into the game/season pass, and they haven't even added the maps to the normal rotations yet. I'm actually fine with it, because I don't even like the 2 new maps. I have to admit, I am having fun with the game because a few friends of mine are consistently getting on and playing as a team. I get bored when it's just me running solo.
