Back 4 Blood is the best FPS I’ve played on the console for years

I don’t pretend to be good at shooting, but I do like most of them.I am a big fan of Left 4 Dead. This is a four-player co-op zombie shooting game, so the spiritual successor of Turtle Rock and Warner Bros., four-player co-op, zombie shooting game 4 blood back, I am very interested. I didn’t play the beta, so I entered the last game without knowing what I was doing.


It turns out that what I am after is an FPS with excellent control on the console. I’m playing a game on Xbox Series X, using a standard Xbox Series controller, and I’m removing zombies faster than Scrooge can remove his Christmas decorations (the game calls them Ridden, and someone jumps in to correct it I).

It all depends on how the gun feels when using the console controller. Through automatic aiming and aiming downward aiming to capture the target, the whole process only needs one click. Although these assists are on (by default), they don’t feel too strong. It feels almost like being one with a gun, instead of taking control from you with a heavy hand. It should be like this.

Of course, on a PC, if you are fully experienced with the kind of fast precision that a mouse can provide, you don’t need to do this, but on a console, it’s nothing shameful. I fully support assists that make things more interesting. Why struggle when you have options available? Who cares if someone on Twitter thinks you are not fun FPS. Frankly, screw them up.


The gunfight on the console feels very good and I am worried.

It is worth noting that the assists here did not turn Back 4 Blood into a GTA-style shooter. This is not an aim lock; you still need to aim. And still very, very likely to miss and overspend. In fact, I want to say that the key to a lot of Back 4 Blood, at least in the first few hours of using it, is usually crowd control. Dealing with the weird Ridden is easy, but when a large group of people come to you, things become difficult.

This is what I want to say, really. Some shooting games on the console ended up at both ends of the aiming range. Either you can’t aim for shit, or you can let the hamster play and get more or less the same result. Turtle Rock has found it. As a person who is often embarrassed, bears a beard, and is a geek, I can’t say that often, but Back 4 Blood did a great job and made me feel like a badass.

If you buy the deluxe or ultimate edition, “Back 4 Blood” is now on sale, but everyone else will be on sale on October 12, when Game Pass for console, PC and cloud will also be launched. For more upcoming games, please go to our video game release date page.
