A few weeks ago I was talking to a fellow gamer, and afterward he said that Call of Duty: Black Ops was probably the worst in the series. I asked him why he felt that way, and he said that, despite everything it did right, it “sucked”. I agreed that it didn’t do too much right, but what particularly bothered me was the fact that he said Black Ops “sucked”, and not “didn’t do much right”.

It has become an annual tradition for GamesRadar to buy a new game for review. Since 2010, we’ve done it every time Call of Duty releases a new title. For the last two years, it’s been the Call of Duty: Black Ops franchise. For our latest foray, we were tasked with taking on Cold War, the third installment in the Black Ops sub-series. Will we be saved by the bell this year?

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a new multiplayer zombie survival game for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. In Cold War, you play as a member of an elite Cold War-era espionage team called ‘The MI6-2’. As a team of four, you face a new threat: a zombie virus that wiped out over half of the Earth population.

Treyarch has returned with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the newest installment in the Black Ops series, which has been a particular favorite of mine since the original game was released in 2010. I was thrilled to see all of the aspects that make a Black Ops game return, but this edition falls short of its predecessor primarily due to its multiplayer, which is a pity given that this shooter is released in the same timeframe as two major companies’ next-generation consoles.

To be honest, it’ll be difficult to beat 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which pushes the boundaries of what Call of Duty can do in the future with areas that host large-scale fights, next-gen graphics, and improved gunplay. The campaign was the only thing that stood out in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Treyarch seems to take the cautious route in everything else.

Two weeks, two games, two reviews. The Call of Duty franchise has been having a tough time. Call of Duty: Ghosts was a disappointment, and the most recent title, Black Ops II, was largely panned for its decision to abandon the traditional single player story, and move the series’ focus to multiplayer. So, with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, it seemed like a good time to look back at the series’ last venture into the Cold War era, and see how it does compared to its contemporary, and how it stacks up to other games of its genre..
