Whilst I dislike the principle of not being able to build points by injuring zombies, suddenly the strengths of the shotguns shine through the crowd of guns, rather than just being completely ignored like in older games.

I bought it for the PS5 thinking mine would come in november and it still hasn't :), finally tried zombies with the free trial and it's def better than BO4s. I would say I liked it the same as BO3 launch

I love how many upgrades there are before on solo you'd be set at round 12 with perks and pap'ed guns. Now you need to go to round 28 at least to upgrade everything and the higher pace really works well for me.

dont like the point system, cant make points in later rounds due most weapons are getting pretty bad tbh and exfiltration is to short
Legiey Day ago
Im sure this game has had a lot of buffs and nurfs since this review but, I'm trying out the free zombies week and I am surprised this is really fun and it actually feels like a challenge, this is already better than b03 and b04 zombies to me. Only thing I don't like is the map.

Though the mechanics and everything other than the story and ee has been improved significantly for the better but for me the weakest part has Been the loosely connected story and weak ee

I agree with most points in the video. However, I highly HIGHLY disagree on your viewpoint on story. I believe a good story and likable characters are essential to the zombies experience for me. In this game, we have neither. Hopefully in the DLC that will change.

Live this, except I do disagree with the story aspect being important. The characters and overall aether story were the reason that so many people fell in love with zombies. And rn they have some potential for an awesome story but they def need to dive into more and let us see more of it, which I think they’ll do!

The issue with the points is the old model highly favored trash weapons to get the most points out of a single zombie, Kino high round was just using a pm63 for points grinding to fund the traps and made shotguns and snipers far worse because you had far less points to work with. The current system removes that crippling factor from those high damage weapons, until like bo3 when we had real boss fights shotguns and rockets were jokes and meme weapons not to used seriously.

Hiya Tim, been over a year since I watched last but I'm here once more, glad to see you're still active! I wanted to give my input. I'm a big firearm enthusiast, my specialty (as being an "expert" in general firearms is more or less impossible due to the variety over time) is Cold War era weapons, especially Russian and Chinese copies of Russian guns from the era. I love that Cold War added the weapon progression (not unique but it was the first I owned that had it), but it has done something to me that Hunt: Showdown has also done... It got me addicted to progression. So I started with the M16A2, personal favorite of mine, grinded the Hell out of it from day one and gold viper on that sucker was done in like two-three weeks, maybe less. So I never had a reason to use my favorite gun, and to this day I am continuously just progressing, I've unlocked the 1911 gold viper and XM4 as well, I'm on the Type 63 and Krig 6 now, but this addiction to progression, despite Hunt making it worse, was linked back to MW 2019. Love the M4 and the AK, but almost never use them because I no longer progress with them. Now naturally I love progression because I love customizing my guns, but it has caused me to stop using what I normally at heart want to use, like an M16 with irons, so now I use a Krig 6 with a Silux Holo, despite not really liking the AK5 and preferring irons when practical. It is a curse and a blessing, because IRL I hold a few guns in my collection dear, like my Chinese SKSs (not Type 63s btw, Type 56 Semi carbines, T63 is actually a mix of the T56S and T56 Assault, which is the Chinese AK47. It failed gloriously.), and I'll hold those dear for my whole life, or I stand furiously by my Glock, but in game, that same permanence battles with my addiction to progress and the progression tends to win out. Maybe I'm the only one, but in a way I love it, but in others I feel saddened I can no longer use the M16 without feeling bothered that I'm not progressing it as a weapon.

Just say you love treyarch. Seriously you said so many things that are objectively wrong,lmao. This cod zombie lacks personality, the map is bland, the UI is bland, and then you say other companies "tried to copy what Treyarch does"??? Are you kidding me? There are some players like me who are not competely blinded by nostalgia and aren't willing to swallow wathever Treyarch wants us to eat and reject anything that doesn't have the name TREYARCH on it.
CODA 11 days ago
Agreed. This is by far one of the worst starting maps ever. Its bland, boring and already not fun anymore after 2-3 times. Remember Shadows of Evil from BO3? THAT was an amazing map. Great characters, great eastereggs, great map. Not this blant generic ''nazi labarotory'' with bullet sponge bosses that eat 10 pack-a-punched magazines.

Even though Cold War is not my favorite zombies game, I would love if they released a Zombies Chronicles DLC with every zombies map that came before (I'm talking Nacht-Tag). Like you said, the mechanics of this game allow for greater replayability, and I would love to see certain features, such as the custom loadouts, the tiered damages, the rising prices, and the exfil, on every single map. I also just really want a game where they put every single map on the same engine so we can really compare and contrast the Zombies maps on their own without worrying about how the game they're in (*cough* Black Ops 4) muddies your impression of it.
Ethan P
Ethan P 16 days ago
@Jack If I had to bet on 8 maps like the last ZC, I'd actually guess TranZit, Die Rise, and Buried would all be there, along with Einsendrache, Zetsubou, and Gorod. The last two, I'd guess maybe Shadows and IX. I'd actually kind of prefer if they released a completely separate Call of Duty Zombies game with all the Treyarch maps included, but I think a map pack is more likely.

I played for once match and didn't like it. One i spawned in with a smg. Right. But then if I spawned in with a pistol. The pistol has 200 ammo. Who tf ever had 200 ammo for a pistol. It's retarded. Then if I get a different gun like a smg again from a wall it literally has less than 150. Second thing is health bars i don't care about it. It's just distracting. With the numbers. The big thing I didn't like. Was how they removed the bear. With a fucking rabbit. A blue fucking rabbit. Then there is the dumb skills i don't even know how to use any of it.

So I’ve been binging it lately and I really do love it. I do like how the storyline is simpler now because I just had no clue what was happening before. The mechanics aren’t overly confusing and easy to learn. My only complaint is how they changed the points from damage based to kill based only. This makes later rounds extremely hard. Since zombie health is ever increasing you’ll slowly be consuming more ammo to get kills on zombies. Eventually you could get to a point where you’re out of points because you needed to refill your weapon’s ammo and you’re stuck not being able to get points since your gun isn’t powerful enough to get enough kills to make up for its ammo usage. Yeah I know there’s probably ways to get around this, but it’s not really clear. Basically to sum up the difficulty: early rounds it is by far the easiest zombies. In later rounds it becomes the hardest

@CODA I am being honest with myself. I honestly do love this map. Just did the Easter egg recently too. It’s honestly incredible how much hidden stuff this map has without feeling too complicated
CODA 11 days ago
Be honest with yourself the map sucks. I was torn at the beginning, but the more i play it, the more i realize how bad it is. Tranzit might actually be better. Atleast it had some funny lines and stupid characters, unlike the no-name characters in Cold War.

Atmosphere and characters are shit. It does not feel like you are trapped in a horrific nightmare, it feels like you are bunch of badass mofos that are out to hunt some zombies. If they wanted that I think they achieved it. Gameplay feels super fresh and satisfying do. I hope they work on that atmosphere a lot more on next maps and it could be really good.

When this game came out I was like nah it’s shit but I’ve got it and honestly I only play it for zombies and not multiplayer, the zombies is good but obviously compared to other past black ops zombies it’s shit but don’t get me wrong it’s still a good zombie game Cold War. I honestly like it now just would be better if the characters spoke and once they release new maps it’ll be good , hate how they took out slide cancel but ..

Sorry chief I don't agree I've waited for ages shortly after bo4 came out I stopped playing mainly because I didn't like the perk system and the zombies spread was terrible so I continued playing bo3 zombies at first I wasn't sure about the gobblegums now bo3 zombies is a masterpiece I loved it pretty quickly the maps everything. CW comes out I play abit of it and now I'm still playing bo3 zombies ....... Die machine is shit. Also i don't want to upgrade juggernog we didn't upgrade perks I want to get them thats it the zombies spread on cw you shoot a zombie once and it kind od falls to the side to make it more realistic but it makes it more difficult the megaton is a cunt and after you kill him you have to deal with the 2 alien things and the dogs are anoying.... Can we have a different experience but still OG if you know what I mean Oh and starting with a pistol was classic it's taken the good feel away. Also the mini map and characters in cw zombies can FUCK OFF!!! 😂😂😂

No one is realizing all the things treyarch had used from sledgehammers ww2, WW2 was the first zombie game to have classes to spawn in and create, WW2 first game to implement the armor system, zombies have a mix of treyarch and ww2 zombies. You also had special equipment like a throwing axe, and you can run around with a shovel😂, This generally feels like a sledgehammer zombies with a little bit of treyarch trademarks such as the perks and weapons. Sledgehammer also started making this game then treyarch put in the finishing touches.

i feel like this game spoils you, you can see your health, your armor, take risky routes, and when you go back to BO3 or Bo2 the zombies feel WAAAY more risky. You always needed to be aware of the zombies, 3 hits and you're down. Ive gotten stuck on this game in a corner, by at least 6 zombies, or more, constantly hitting me. Thanks to armor and jug, i somehow get away. Thats just my experience, after playing Cold War forever than you swap back, and its crazy by round 15

You forgot to mention the specialist ability (the one where the Zombies ignore you) which makes it really easier aswell and you can stack the amount of it. Its not like bubblegum where you ran out of it or just dont get it - the ability bar gets full pretty fast. I agree with you and thats why imo this is just way easier than older Zombies - even as a casual I dont really have too much enjoyment because of it and dont want to get on it for weeks after playing it a couple times.

I think you may have forgotten that you can also level up the rarity of your weapons. So if you wanna really get your weapon lvl up on something you brought it, you can spend scrap to turn it from red to gold.
KralF24 Month ago
Am I the only one who founds Die Maschine too easy? I always play really casually since first time ever playing Zombies and never had real high rounds - hell never even reached 40 before Cold War, but Die Maschine feels way easier and I actually got nearly twice as high as I got on old maps.
that was very pog of you
What i love is you can actually see your teammates health bar without it you don't know when to use your healing ability if equiped

Everything in the Aether storyline is canon and at the end the story when the characters sacrificed themselves to collapse the multiverse the black ops Cold War universe came up in its absence where none of the stuff that happened in the original timeline happened and the zombies only starting to appear now

I actually don’t like the new zombies. I don’t like the Arcadyness of the drops and weapon rarities. Also zombies aren’t scary anymore, they are just push overs that you can run circles around. And all you need is a Gallo, the Gallo turns the zombies into a joke. They had some good ideas but I just don’t think it worked for me.

corn cob
corn cob Month ago
I want to think that Cold War zombies is good, but it’s not. It’s way too different from the original zombies, the point system, how the zombies move, the gun rarities, it’s just too different from me. The game doesn’t even really feel like zombies tbh, it feels like a wanna be mw3 survival. And the thing I hate most about zombies is the toxic guy. It’s the most annoying thing ever to play zombies and try to avoid getting hit by the thousands of toxic shots from half way across the map

@corn cob Personally, I like the changes, but I understand why people may need more time to get used to them or just not like them at all because this game mode is drastically different from regular, Bo1/Bo2/Bo3 Zombies.

@corn cob Yeah! I agree! Of course I respect your opinion. I just think that CW Zombies rivals Bo3 for the best Zombies. But, it's great tom know other people's opinions! I just think CW will get better as time goes on. That happens every time with a CoD.

Just like turned and grief, Cold War Zombies may age well.

I purposefully waited until I could form my own opinions on COld War zombies before watchign ANY YT content on it. Glad I did it, and glad to see I'm not the only person who enjoys the fuck out of it. I also am not huge on the new "Essence" system, but I love the scrap system. Super useful, but sometimes I wish you got moer High Grade Salvage from picking some up. FINALLY SOMETHING SUPER FUCKING NEWWWWW, I love being able to upgrade perks, and everything feels fresh. I feel this game is what BO4 SHOULD have been, and this game wasn't even supposed to be a Teryarch game. FUCK THE FOG THOUGH
