Run up the latest Call of Duty, I was greeted by terrible looking menus, an overwhelming amount of options, too much information, and some ugly looking ads. It’s not a good first impression and feels like a cobbled together mess. In other words, it’s bad.
There was a time when I played every new one call of Duty Game. I would play the campaign over a weekend and then spend long hours playing online over a few months. But around Black Ops III I started skipping games. Partly because I had other things to play, partly because my friends stopped playing, and partly because I just got bored of everything. The constantly growing installation sizes from every game didn’t excite me to jump in again.
My cod Vacation ended as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was recently put up for sale on PS5. I found some space by deleting older games that I had quit and installing Activision’s newest giant game with a silly name.
The first impression is important and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Oh my god I hate typing that name makes a super bad first impression. The moment you start it, you have three games to choose from, like a horrific monster put together from older pieces pinned together into a creature. And as much space as Cold War consumed, War zone, call of DutyThe popular popular free Battle Royale remains an additional installation that has to accommodate your hard drive.
After looking into the actual game that I bought and downloaded, I decided to go with a multiplayer mode. It was then that the really terrible menus appeared.
Cold Warlike other newer ones call of Duty Games, is chock-full of options, modes, features, gear, etc. It makes you feel like you got your money’s worth, which is lovely. But all of these things need to be organized, listed and presented to the players and players Cold War does a terrible job of it. It’s extremely overwhelming. At one point my friend looked at it and announced, “This is terrible. This gives me a headache. “Reader, you wasn’t wrong. For example, take a look at the store page in Cold War::
It looks like I came across some online ads from the early 2000s. Oh, and this screenshot doesn’t show a lot of these items moving and glowing like a herd of annoying gifs.
I started flipping around and found the rest of the menus and user interface terrible too. There is a tab for a mode called Breakout. But I can’t really understand what I see when I open it up and it honestly makes me never get into that mode because when This is I’m not interested in my entry point.
There’s also the main screen that you land on when you start online multiplayer. There you’ll see an indicator, various indicators, progress levels, and game modes while your soldier is nervously walking around in the background. This man is trapped in the terrible user interface. Somebody help him!
There are weird little quirks too. One that I found very funny is that all of the single player challenges in the game are in the multiplayer menus. I don’t know why they’re here, but it’s possible that another part of this crazy menu buffet has the answer.
I finally played Call of Duty: Black Ops in the Cold War Some IDK Whateverand i had a good time! The fight feels great, especially when it’s running at 120 frames per second. I played a couple of Nuketown, got some solid killstreaks, and had fun. But getting there took too much work and mixing up the menus. Unfortunately, I’m not sure there is an easy way to solve this modern day problem cod Games are so big and feature-crammed that there may not be a lot of rationalization that could be done without removing content.
I miss the elderly call of Duty games that had simpler, easier-to-navigate menus, which made getting into the action a lot less disruptive. These games also had less content, which resulted in nicer menus that were less difficult to navigate. So my solution is simple: smaller call of Duty Games. What do you think?
