Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Review
The next step in evolution?
If you’re going to be buying Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, you’re doing it for Zombies and a fresh multiplayer experience after a year of Advanced Warfare. It sure as heck isn’t going to be for the campaign, which is the worst we’ve seen in quite some time. Co-op makes it bearable, but you won’t be spending replay time with it. While I like the progression systems and the smooth, easy-to-use movement, Specialists are both a nice change and a one-year gimmick at the same time. It’s giving fans of Call of Duty’s multiplayer another year of what they want more of -- more shooting, maps and prestige.
The real star is Zombies, which is the best version of it we’ve seen yet. At this point, it’d be nice to see Call of Duty get its own Zombies game instead of the futuristic military setting we’ve been getting.
In the end, if you love Call of Duty multiplayer, get Black Ops 3, because the controls and shooting is solid, even if the game as a whole does little to advance the franchise. If you love zombies, get it. But don't get it for the story and campaign.
