‘Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’ a solid spinoff game

Grant Nelson, Staff Writer

A game worth checking out is “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.” A sequel to the original “Black Ops,” it follows special forces operatives during the height of the Cold War with Russia.
The game takes place in the 1980s and is heavy with historical facts and vibes. Players are taken to many locations that were hotbeds during the Cold War.
There are some decent role-playing choices in the story, along with weapon customization and other things, including choosing one’s gender. The multiplayer option was improved with its war zone mode featuring massive player battles over large maps. The gun load outs are also an improvement.
But this game shines with its side story, filled with zombies and demons. There are loads of ridiculous weapons you can slay the undead horde with. The zombies game modes are very diverse, from story-driven mini-missions to vast fields filled with undead, where you and others gun them down in tanks. This game has been out for a year, so it should be less expensive now. See you in the war zone.
