If this qualifies as a rant, remove it, that’s fine, but I really think this is an issue that should be addressed and read about…
I bought this game yesterday for the 50% off Microsoft sale and I must say I was really enjoying it, until I tried to play split screen with my dad tonight.
My dad and I have played Splitscreen multiplayer ever since Black Ops II and it’s easily the most fun I ever have playing CoD. But this is the first time we’ve had to stop because the game is basically unplayable, for a few reasons.
First, the black bars on the side of the screen make the screens so small (even on our moderately sized tv) that we can’t see any of the action properly enough to play, and neither of us can figure out why the bars are even there… Single player uses the full screen, other COD’s splitscreen used the full screen, why mess it up now? (If there is a way to change this in the settings I apologise for the criticism and will accept any tips/fixes with extreme gratitude).
Second issue would be the frame rate drops that are even worse than they were in WWII. For those who don’t know, in WWII whenever one player paused the game, the other’s screen would pause for about a tenth of a second, this was really only an issue when changing classes and had an easy work around; just notify the other person that you want to change classes, they’ll get into a safe spot when they’re ready. In Black Ops 4 this issue has not changed, and in fact, it’s even worse. Because every time a player dies, they’re sent to the screen before deployment with the big map, which causes those frame skips, this leads to much more frequent game pauses and frame rate drops.
Another point of frame rate drops is with explosive score streaks. The game simply can’t handle multiple explosions going off on two screens apparently, and so if anyone in the lobby is doing well and activates a particularly explosive heavy score streak, those playing splitscreen are basically doomed until it’s gone.
I just want to say again how disappointing this really is, because from what I’ve played on my own, the game is a blast! And playing multiplayer with a friend in the same room is incredibly fun, but at the same time it’s unfair to have to shell out hundreds of dollars on another console, tv, and game just to play when splitscreen is such a basic feature that has worked for so long. The games been out for a few months now, and I know it’s unlikely that these problems will be fixed, but I still wanted to get the point across since I didn’t see it was discussed a whole lot…
Thanks for reading,
