Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was launch this October. But there is a debate whether the game is a downgrade from Modern Warfare.
Black Ops Cold War has been compared to its predecessor since it was multiplayer leaked a few months back. In the Call of Duty life cycle, it is a natural part.
A big point of this appears to be due to the game’s graphical capabilities.
Compare Black Ops Cold War’s Graphics and Modern Warfare’s?
Despite Cold War doesn’t appear to look better than its older brother – Modern Warfare. Many argue that the game looks worse. However it isn’t strictly fact.
Yes, the Cold War’s graphics are different from Modern Warfare. But they’re also more stylized. Different studios have developed these two game, it’s hard to compare them.
Modern Warfare has a cleaner, more crisp graphical style. It also is commonly associated with better performance. However, Cold War is more colorful and vibrant in nature.
We can see some direct graphical comparisons in a video by Call of Duty YouTuber TheXclusiveAce. There’s not too much difference between the two titles in essence. Although Modern Warfare tens to have a much higher quality image and attention to detail.
It’s worth pointing out, though, that one common fan complaint is not being able to pick out enemies amongst the game’s background. Right now, Treyarch needs to take steps to improve enemy visibility if it wants to put graphical concerns to rest.
The fact that Black Ops Cold War has been developed for both current and next-gen consoles also means that its graphical capabilities have been stunted. Treyarch isn’t able to push the PS5 and Series X hardware when the game has to run on older consoles.
Cold War’s Gameplay And Than Modern Warfare, is there any one worse than the other?
It’s hard to answer this question,honestly. Some players would argue that Modern Warfare was a step back for the franchise.
Despite Infinity Ward taking a chance and adding new cover mechanics, the resulting gameplay of Modern Warfare has become far more defensive. Lots of users criticize the game for being slow and campy.
On the other hand, Cold War is a return to form for the fast-paced Call of Duty. Players are encouraged to run-and-gun, especially since SMGs were so powerful in the Beta.
This ‘Arcade-style’ gameplay is often seen as being more enjoyable, but it’s also not without its faults. The new changes to the sliding mechanic, which was very broken in the Beta is a poor decision on Treyarch’s part.
It’s hard to compare an unfinished product to the one that’s on the market at the present. However, the developer may well fix this exploitable technique to release the best production.
At the end, we’re still going to have to wait until the completed product is delivered to make any judgment. What’s more, Cold War will play best on a next-gen console. But we’re yet to experience it.
We need to give Black Ops Cold War time to impress us. And right now, Treyarch is giving us more of a glimpse into what’s to come.
Black Ops Cold War is teasing a return of a popular character In a new series of videos. At the end of the day, the game is certain to deliver an entertaining follow-up to the Black Ops campaign.
