Review: Back 4 Blood is great with friends, but solo players are Left 4 Dead

Turtle Rock attempts to Evolve the formula that made them famous, but there’s little here for single-player fans

It seems backhanded to say that a game is only worth playing if you can find people to distract you from the actual game, but if your group wants something mindless to wind down after an intense night on Warzone or Rainbow Six: Siege, Back 4 Blood is ideal.

  • Rock solid gunplay
  • Great with friends
  • The card system freshens up future runs
  • Pointless, incomplete single player
  • Braindead AI
  • Extremely repetitive mission structure
3 / 5
Version tested
Xbox Series X | S
