It was decent. Some hit reg issues, Miami map was a bit gooseberry fool and the quick scoping was insane.

The increased TTK was nice as well. The engine isn't as good as MW2019 though and the animations were worse.

Map design was good and the new gunsmith also kicks ass.

Was this ever available on sale at Amazon UK? Because I just went looking for it and it’s not available on all systems, which is rather odd.

Weird. Maybe it’s been cancelled.

A couple of nights I did a search and didn't find it, and then I did another search and it was there! (one was Call of Duty Cold War the other PS5 games). But I didn't preorder. Now it's gone completely so I don't know the reason why they don't want it live.

Only had a brief go on the open beta. Seems decent. Gunplay is good. Movement is nice and smooth. Maps are good (what ive played).
Its open again on Thursday for all PS4 owners and Xbox pre orders.
I tried to pre order on amazon. Could find it for the ps4 or ps5.

I thought the beta was supposed to open for everyone this weekend. Still showing as unavailable for me to even download it.

EDIT: Seems like I have to wait until 6pm. And then download 24GB. So much for a “weekend” of access.

Next weekend is open for everyone. The staggered times have been a pain in the arse as has the fact you cant pre install it unless you've pre ordered.

The same good things and bad things are there. Some great maps and modes. Doesn't look as good as modern warfare but its lobbys are better - although still bloody twitchy. 30 minutes the other day with no game in sight.

I've enjoyed it but it may actually be the first cod I don't buy at launch. Simply put. It isn't as good as warzone. Which is free. I may well spend the money elsewhere when the PS5 comes.

The multiplayer is better than MW but the SBMM is a pure joy killer.

I've a digital preorder for the cross gen version. Mainly for zombies and single player tbh.

I've hated the beta, controls feel alot more clunky compared to MW, weapon levelling is a massive grind to the point it's not enjoyable, and some of the maps (Miami especially) are too big for 6 v 6.

After playing days of MW can't help feel a bit dissapointed in this. Also some of the netcode is awful, the amount of times i was being shot round corners when in the killcam i was apparently bang in front of the person was ridiculous.

They've unlocked all the weapon attachments for the last couple of days for the Beta. Game feels much better now as weapons feel much more responsive. Still not as good as MW and like Denster said it's not warzone so it's nowhere near that level. Probably will skip this.
