Personally, I want to love BO4 I really really do, I wish I could give a mixed opinion But I can only give a thumbs up and a thumbs down. So with that I guess I can only say that I can only give it based off what the average consumer can expect.
First off this game is linear, in other words, it seems like you can do whatever you want but you actually can’t because you need to be a high enough level to do so in the first place forcing you to do quests and tasks in a specific order. Still an awesome First Person Shooter though…..
Then there are more issues such as some serious design flaws. The armor system (for example) is one of them. Because of how it works you can’t really used a mixed party. You either go all in for physical or all in for magical damage. To make matters worse as long as the enemy has physical armor you can’t cc them which is a serious design flaw.
Then it kinda gets a bit worse when we talk about how you have to cheese everything and chain cc to win or how enemies can cc chain you into oblivion. This is why you use a diminishing returns system, ie. the more you use something the less effective it is. Oh and I actually just got the game completely for free lol:
The story is honestly kind of meh but it does have it’s ups and downs (but never a strong suit for the call of duty franchise) Personally I don’t have any complaints about it.
Honestly, the game doesn’t have that many issues IMO, but the issues are so bad that it seriously tanks the rating that I would give this game from an 8.5-9 out of 10 to around a 7.7-7.8.
