New year, new COD. Nothing different could be expected, yet, this year Something has changed. If on the one hand, in fact, we have a multiplayer sector that goes back to the origins, on the other we have a campaign that goes against expectations. Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is a breath of fresh air This do not disappoint, However, the fans of the saga. The multiplayer sector takes the best of the previous Modern Warfare and translates it into a worthy Black Ops. Frantic mechanics beyond all belief, crazy races from one point to another on the map, but ultimately with a better time to kill.

The guys at Treyarch have done a great job bringing back the multiplayer at the height of pleasure for veterans and offering a single player worth mentioning. We do not have perfection ahead of us, but we can only be more than satisfied with the result obtained. So, without further hesitation, let's run and dive into the frenzy of the new Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War.

The new season of Call Of Duty: Mobile is now available

Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is a return to the origins

The first feeling you get when you place your hand on Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is a throwback, at least as far as the multiplayer sector is concerned. The first emotion is precisely that of having to deal with the first Black Ops. THE movements, races, frenzy, everything reminds us of the past It's good. The feeling is finally familiar, especially to veterans of the saga. Of course, you'll have to get used to a new time to kill, but the feeling is definitely satisfying.

You cannot go to the battlefield lightly, you need concentration. Shootouts last just as long as it takes and life doesn't recharge that quickly. The combination of the two forces us to be precise in the shots, but above all not very sedentary. It is essential to run from side to side, shoot, dodge and stay focused on the target. The goal is always to knock out our enemies and doing so is always more satisfying.

THE equipment system who sees the possibility of create personalized courses. As always, experience to unlock weapons is accumulated through time spent in combat. The more we playthe more we score, the more we get new weapons, equipment and skills. As always, in addition to the main weapon we can have a secondary one, we can equip it with sights, additional magazines, muzzle brakes, etc. Added to this are the gadgets and skills, all perfectly customizable.

An updated system of upgrades

New Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is a nice feature set. From its closest cousin, Black Ops 4, loses operator specialtiesbut of its closest temporal relative, Modern Warfare, take the killstreak. Well, also in this chapter I power-ups on the battlefield: bombings, helicopters, drones. However, the counting system changes which is renewed with an unexpected formula. If in the past, in fact, it was possible to recall an attack thanks to a series of murders without death, now, however, these are the points that count.

The system, in fact, is fueled by killings on the ground, but no longer only by their sequence. You no longer need to get 10 kills in a row, just focus on the objective. This system is very popular, especially for novice players. Finally, even those who cannot inflict many casualties without dying will have the ability to unleash powerful bombardments. A pleasant system that can be used by everyonewhich further helps engage less experienced users.

There is still work to be done on balancing

The only real flaw in the multiplayer sector lies in the weapon balancing, which as we all know is the hardest part to deal with. Of course, it will take some time to get a balanced system to its best, but we're willing to wait. As always, shotguns and snipers are likely to become very powerful in the hands of veterans. The problem, however, it's not just the weapons, but above all the advantages who guide our virtual soldier.

Removed 200 player mode from Call of Duty: Warzone

In Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, it is indeed possible to use Specialty and Wildcard. These, in short, give Useful upgrades to improve your alter ego in combat. There are basically three skills and a wildcard to equip. These can, for example, double the number of skills on the field, or increase the accessory slots of weapons.

Some decisions made seem to lean a little towards veterans, leaving a little less room for newcomers to the game. Certainly, however, the work done is good and, with a minimum of regularization, the experience will be enjoyable for everyone .

What would Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War be without zombies?

Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is packed with modes and in the game proposals. As usual, we find the most classic modes, like Death Match, Dominion and Confirmed Killing. However, there are some innovations, such as Combined arms, Dirty Bomb and Vip Escort. The first is perhaps intended as a reminder of COD's rival, Battlefield. It is, in fact, a broader modality than classical domination, with the addition of attack vehicles. Sand objectives to conquer, tanks to use, 24 playersDoes “Conquest” in Battlefield mean anything to you? Unfortunately, the intention is beautiful, a little less the execution. There is certainly still work to be done, particularly with regard to balance, but the road is the right one.

Obviously, what would Black Ops be without zombies? Here, not exactly unexpectedly, the very desired also arrives Zombie mode. It's a mode that fans have always loved, highly sought after, desired, and a lot of fun. This doesn't change too much from the classic vision of Call of Duty: level after level, hordes of monsters attack us. Our only goal is kill and survive. Easy to say, a little less to do!

Call of Duty: Warzone is a success, good news for Activision

Enemies multiply with each wave and increase their potential. We will have to focus on the game, the map and the weapons that will come to our rescue. A rewarding and fun mode, but not too simple in the higher levels. Will you be able to stop all the incoming zombies? You just have to dive into the battle and find out.

And who buys Call of Duty for the campaign?

Although multiplayer has been the hottest part of recent years, that hasn't always been the case. There was a time when the saga could only live alone. Attached Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, we return to the dawn of history. The new chapter, in fact, offers us a campaign that is much more than just training. We have a strong back story of not just run and gun, but politics and conspiracies. There the narration is rich and it is not limited to a few simple scenes, but rather is dissected into a decidedly more complex plot, of which the Cold War is the outline.

The most interesting part is that narration is not just about telling a story, but try to make us real protagonists. He does this by first offering us the possibility of “Create” a character consistent with our ideas. Of course, we're not looking at an RPG, but something is moving. In the first hours of play, in fact, we will be able to sketch the personality of our character and even give it a name. These will not be simple outlines, but they will develop our answers during the story. The choices we make will not completely change history, but will allow us to face it with a different key. Personalization Highlight are the multiple answers that will be given to us throughout history.

Season 6 is coming to Call of Duty: Mobile with many new features

Finally, with the choice of background, we will also choose certain skills who will accompany us during the match. We found around fifteen and we will have to select two. It's about passive advantage this will help us to face the title as we see fit. Some, for example, will increase your aiming speed, some will increase your reload, etc.

We will meet the challenge in the most appropriate way

Part of the evolution of The Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War campaign also lies in the choice of development. Indeed, before us there will no longer be a single path to follow; we will have a goal to achieve, but the method will be up to us. We will no longer be thrown into a classic shooter story, but rather into an articulated game. Now, we will choose the missions using an “operational base”.

Another point of interest is the way a mission can be carried out, or rather, the ways. Well yes, because there isn't just one. The approach can be different, as long as you achieve the desired goal. The only “run and shoot” disappears and is divided into a more “complex” mechanic. Strength is not our only ace up our sleeve, oratory also becomes important. A bit like in Fallout (reduced, of course, to a minimum), entry into an armory can also only be done through our persuasion.

There is no longer a single mission, but there are also side quests which will help to complete the game 100%. Small, simple side missions that will change the view of the classic first-person shooter. A breath of fresh air which will satisfy even those less passionate about the “run and shoot” genre.
Added to this, the last little gem, is the presence of a few arcade terminals scattered throughout the map, fully playable. In short, a real touch of class.

Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is a chapter worth playing, not only in multiplayer, but also in single player. Excellent work, not without flaws, but still much appreciated.
