DIGAGAMI ALPHA – Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Welcome back to ANOTHER Digagami Alpha review! This time, we have Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War reviewed by yours truly, Johnny Django.

If you are new here, I have a cool system for you Visual Learners out there! If you’d rather watch a video on what I’m going to talk about, here is that video:

For those of you loyal readers out there that will appreciate my digital penmanship, I got you covered.

So, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was a very anticipated title for those who wanted to play zombies. When it released 2 days ago, most knew that it was bound to be disappointing. Let’s dive into my experience with Black Ops Cold War.

Campaign

As I explained in that video, I will not be spoiling anything for you. I am currently around 25% done with the campaign, but let’s be honest here, who buys a Call of Duty title for the Campaign?

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good campaign so far, but 9 times out of 10 you will buy this game for Multiplayer and Zombies. So, let’s move on from the Campaign part.

Multiplayer

Man, where do I even start with this plane crash? In short, Black Ops took a turn into bigger maps and camping. The Black Ops I knew made smaller maps with virtually no way to camp without getting hit from multiple sides.

Now, they are basically supporting camping by making these big maps with lots of bushes, mini shacks, and sometimes even an ocean you can hide in (*Cough* Miami).

From the boring guns to the bad map design, this game feels like it came out in 2001. The action feels way slower than Modern Warfare, and its even harder to see players because blend in to pretty much anything.

You could probably sit against a wall with a tan outfit and you still wouldn’t be noticed. Since the game came out 2 days ago, the hacker issue happens often. I 100% recommend buying Modern Warfare for multiplayer, but Zombies are what saved Cold War from being bad.

Zombies

I thought Black Ops Cold War took my $60 and ran off as Anthem did, but I was wrong. I queued up for some Zombies with my buddies and I was completely shocked by how much they improved this mode.

They gave us pretty much everything we asked for, after 7 years… To give you a quick rundown of what they added that is new:

  • Ammo Crates
  • Weapon Mods
  • Loadout Weapon Start
  • Gadgets
  • Four Choosable Elements For Your Weapon
  • Can Hold More Than 4 Perks
  • Armor
  • Weapon Tiers
  • Extraction
  • Trials
  • Crafting Table For Items
  • Aether (New Realm)

They’ve added a lot, and the first map of Cold War Zombies is actually Nacht der Untoten, the first-ever Zombie map in Call of Duty.

All that combined with the upcoming Zombie maps in December makes up for the horrible Multiplayer. We will also see Nuketown, but they might make that big as well, who knows anymore.

Overall, I’m giving Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a 7/10. There isn’t much to talk about in this game, but that’s how Call of Duty titles are. It’s worth playing for the Zombies, I hope this helped you.
