Þeir sem forpöntuðu Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War fyrir PlayStation gátu byrjað að spila á miðnætti í gær. Um svipað leiti var aflétt banni af umfjöllun fréttamiðla sem hafa verið að dæla á Netið gagnrýni og dómum um leikinn. Fyrstu viðbrögð þeirra, sem við höfum lesið, virðast almennt vera jákvæð, hér förum við aðeins yfir hvað sagt hefur verið um leikinn.
Vefurinn IGN fjallaði um single-player söguþráð (campaign) BO Cold War og sagði m.a. þetta:
“Call of Duty’s moment-to-moment gameplay is still primarily a well-dressed shooting gallery, but Black Ops Cold War succeeds in making its quiet time a defining part of its experience rather than just a deep breath between the loud and explode-y sequences. Its story is less successful at leaving a Black Ops 1-level mark, but the importance placed on finding and deciphering evidence as well as the multiple endings give good reason to stick with it beyond its typical six-ish-hour runtime.”IGN @ https://www.ign.com/articles/call-of-duty-black-ops-cold-war-campaign-review-2
Vefurinn gaf campaign hluta leiksins 7 af 10 mögulegum: https://www.ign.com/articles/call-of-duty-black-ops-cold-war-campaign-review-2
PlayStation Lifestyle kalla nú ekki allt ömmu sína (nema auðvitað ömmu gömlu) og þeir segja þetta um leikinn sem hér er til umfjöllunar:
“Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a return to form for the franchise sub-series. While perhaps not as visually splendid as last year’s Modern Warfare, it gets the Black Ops series back to boots on the ground, introducing new characters and elements while lending adequate time and attention to series favorites. Treyarch expertly steps in to continue the recent interconnected Call of Duty franchise shift, exploring and evolving the series while still creating a game that not just retains but oozes that signature Treyarch style. Perhaps more than any Call of Duty game before it, I’m more excited than ever to see where it goes in the future.”PlayStation Lifestyle @ https://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2020/11/12/call-of-duty-black-ops-cold-war-review-weve-got-a-job-to-do-ps5
Þeir gáfu leiknum 90 stig af 100 mögulegum. Holy cow!
Leikjavefurinn GameRant var að tuða um að sumir spilarar væru óánægðir með að ekki væru fleiri maps í leiknum en þau eru 8 talsins í dag. Nánar um það: https://gamerant.com/call-of-duty-black-ops-cold-war-few-maps
Gaming Trend halda varla vatni yfir leiknum og gefa honum 90 stig af 100 mögulegum:
“Black Ops has absolutely returned with a vengeance. The fast, frantic pace is still there, and the gunplay is still just as great as you remember it. While the campaign may be the weakest part of an overall phenomenal package, it’s still very satisfying and the espionage narrative packs a punch. The modes people are going to play the most, multiplayer and Zombies, are the strongest parts of Black Ops Cold War, and offer the best first person shooter gameplay in video games. PS4 and Xbox One players may be missing out on several improvements offered by the next-gen systems and PC, but it’s not enough to detract from an amazing experience. My appetite for Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is definitely growing, and like Duran Duran, “I’m hungry like the wolf”.”Gaming Trend @ https://gamingtrend.com/?p=203010
Ítalska vefsíðan everyeye.it virðist líka nokkuð sátt og gefur Cold War einkunina 8.5 af 10 mögulegum. Ég hef þó ekki hugmynd um hvað þeir eru að segja: https://www.everyeye.it/articoli/recensione-call-of-duty-cold-war-black-ops-tornato-50915.html
Vefsíðan Attack of the Fanboy gefur leiknum einkunina 80 af 100 og segir þetta um niðurstöðuna:
“Overall, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a worthy successor to the original Black Ops. The Black Ops subseries leaned more and more into futuristic combat and advanced technology as it went on, and now Black Ops Cold War brings the series back to its roots.”Attack of the Fanboy @ https://attackofthefanboy.com/reviews/call-of-duty-black-ops-cold-war-review
