In this content, we will talk about the story, gameplay and innovations of the game that will examine Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War.
I am a AAA game addict. Has AAA games decreased in the market? My hand and foot tremble. I can’t find anything to do. My mouse cursor looks for a man to shoot headshot? Therefore, if there is a AAA game that attracts my attention, especially in the FPS or Open World genre, I will play it even if it is like mud.
I have no business with online combat so I care about the story of such games. I think video games are the most interactive storytelling method of our age, and I respect the stories of these games as much as a work of art, even if they do not have a literary quality. I bought and played Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, the last game of the Call Of Duty series, with this impulse, as it offered a good story experience in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 despite its expensive price.
The Story of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War
The story of Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War, which is located somewhere between the Black Ops story series as its name suggests, takes place during the cold war period.
Everything begins with the capture of American soldiers in the Tehran embassy in the game, where real historical events are blended with fiction. Reaching the footsteps of two men on this incident, the CIA immediately starts an operation. After killing one of these men, he is trying to escape from Turkey to hunt the other, and he raids Trabzon Airport.
I looked at the opening date of Trabzon Airport and the dates in the game match and the design of the environment is very, very similar to the design of the Trabzon Airport at the bottom of the sea.
In this airport raid, we understand that the incident in Tehran is actually just the beginning. A terrorist named Perseus aims to get all of Europe with blood using a nuclear weapon. We are trying to catch Perseus for the rest of the game. Although Call of Duty is a hit and go game, I should mention that its story is one of the most profound stories I have seen since the first Modern Warfare series.
Cold War, America and the Soviet Union
As you know, the Cold War was a terrible period when America and the Soviet Union never entered into a hot conflict, but supported opposing organizations in Afghanistan and similar countries, and were in a mutual arms race.
I do not want to give much information in order not to miss the excitement of the story, but in this arms race, nuclear armament was also used. Seeing this situation that poses a great threat to the whole world, the American president Reagon hid secret nuclear in many different European countries, according to the story.
Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War Overview
The story of Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War really enveloped me with its layering structure and good side missions. For the first time in a Call of Duty game, there was a section where we solved puzzles as Enis Kirazoğlu said. Especially the atmosphere and tension in the episode where we infiltrated the KGB building gave me as much pleasure as in the Wolfenstein series. For the first time, I saw that the decisions we made in a Call Of Duty game had an impact on the progress of the game and accordingly, the game ended with different endings.
Especially being able to experience the two different endings of the game was amazing. I will not give details as I do not want to miss the excitement, but finally we were able to see the opposite side’s perspective in an American game. I think they have taken into account the criticisms of the American style that came to the fore in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019. Although Call of Duty is a game that derives the majority of its revenue from America, it also has to consider the global market.
The gameplay mechanics of Black Ops Cold War are fun as we are used to from other Call Of Duty games, but the dose of this fun is not exaggerated. The combination of these mechanics that make it a fast-paced game, I think, is at an optimum level. Although I always play all Call of Duty games at the same difficulty levels in this game, I perceived a situation as if the enemies I encountered were dying more easily.
Let’s come to the biggest problem! This game is very, very expensive dear reader. The story mode also takes a maximum of four to five hours. For such a short game, these numbers are incredible. I’d say wait for it to get a good sale. Or, I think battle.net is turning a blind eye for now: There are players who buy from Russia, but I do not know about it.
Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War Review
Briefly My Opinion
It has the deepest Call of Duty story I’ve played in a long time, but the story mode is too short and too expensive. Other than that, it’s a very nice game.
