Pretty stoked for this mode. Haven't felt this way for a COD release in awhile.

It's so cute they have vehicles now like Battlefield 1942 in 2004!

Don't bother. This title will end up as a PS+ free game at some point in the very near future. There is very little content here. Zombies, Blackout and Control.

That's it. There are some single player mini-missions, but they don't add up to a full campaign worth of content.

And if you aren't totally in love with Battle Royale... there is no point in owning this title at all.

And if you are in love with Battle Royale, you are probably already playing Fortnite.

I do believe that you're on crack.

The point here is that this is half or a quarter of a game at best. For the amount of content, you aren't getting much more than what you would normally get in one Call of Duty DLC pack, not a $60 game. And if you think that some people paid $80 for collector's editions... ouch.

This is the smallest Call of Duty every created. You can totally tell that the developer dropped the ball somewhere and then just rushed to market with whatever they had finished in order to meet some corporate deadline.

Yeah I agree with all of that, just not the part about it being a PSN+ game soon. I know you were probably half kidding and of course, so was I. But I do have to say that this is the first CoD that I'm strongly considering picking up in quite a while. It looks like a return to Modern Warfare's style (not an old war and not some futuristic robot war) and I just like that.

Itís a weird game because it is all based around these 10 or so specialists, each with their own super power and you donít get to use those powers till you get some kills in each match.

It works good in the smaller control matches, but it totally is useless in the Blackout mode because you just donít rack up kills fast enough to ever get to use your powers. Also, some powers are really hard to pull off unless you have quite a few team members backing you up or you get lucky. I love the radiation power, but itís super tricky to ever pull off.

Blackout is a big map, but like Fortnite Battle Royale, itís dull. Me and two other guys in my team (our 4th guy dropped somewhere else and we never saw him again) wandered around for like 10 minutes before we found some enemies and then the other two guys I was with were too dumb to revive me when I was standing right in front of them bleeding out. Very frustrating. Might be a nice mode with a solid team of guys you know, itís the same shit as Fortnite when playing with Randos.

Overall, I would say people should just skip this one. In two weeks Red Dead Redemption 2 drops and so unless you are just totally in love with Battle Royale and you are burned out on Fortnite, you should just wait for RDR2 so you arenít spending double the cash and getting a multiplayer game you wonít be touching for like 3 weeks after RDR2 drops.

I was kinda kidding about the PS+ game too, I don’t think we have ever seen the CoD games show up on PS+. Though, that might have been a smart move to give everyone Black Ops III free right before the new one dropped.

I have so many great PS+ games I haven’t tried like Mafia III and those three adventure games... Heavy Rain and the other one and that horror one with the serial killer? Bunch of stuff I need to sit down and play through.

You don't play as specialists in Blackout mode. They are just skins you can unlock. Everybody starts out the same... with nothing. You just gear up after you drop.
