Treyarch is developing the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise, rumored to be set during the Cold War.
Here are some early reviews of the game.
1Up (91/100): Despite the removal of campaign co-op or a mode comparable to MW2′s Spec Ops mode, the sheer amount of content is almost staggering.
GameInformer (90/100): It’s tough to hate on something as skillfully executed as Black Ops. Call of Duty remains the smoothest, most approachable first-person shooter out there, and I had a blast playing it. On the other hand, it’s disappointing that Treyarch’s much-hyped huge-budget entry in the franchise feels like Modern Warfare 2.5.
IGN (85/100): My biggest issue with the multiplayer is that the new Wager Matches, while fun in their own right, don’t compare favorably to the high-quality and addictive leveling system and game modes from Modern Warfare 1 and 2. Single-player is as exhaustingly fast-paced as ever with large set pieces that try to take the attention off of the lackluster AI of both friends and enemies. Thankfully, the story is the best I’ve ever seen from a Call of Duty game.
