    Synopsis


    Call of Duty: Black Ops III is the ultimate 3-games-in-1 experience. In Campaign mode, you must navigate the hot spots of a new Cold War to find your missing brothers. Players can play the campaign cooperatively or solo and are now always connected to the intelligence grid and their fellow operatives during battle. Multiplayer features a new momentum-based chained movement system, allowing players to fluidly move through the environment with finesse, using controlled thrust jumps, slides, and mantling. Black Ops III multiplayer also introduces the new Specialist character system, which allows players to master 9 characters' battle-hardened weapons and abilities through a challenge-based unlock progression system. No Treyarch title would be complete without its signature Zombies offering. "Shadows of Evil" has its own distinct storyline right out of the box, set in the fictional 1940s Morg City, where four particularly troubled individuals — the femme fatale, the magician, the detective, and the boxer — star in this film-noir inspired horror story.

      I would like to first start off by saying that this Call of Duty is easily the most content filled experience to date. The game comprises of a Campaign, Zombies, and Multiplayer mode that easily offers several hundred hours of game play. Obviously if you considering purchasing Black Ops III then you are a fan of first person shooters, that being said the shooting in this game is on point as usual. The only thing that is especially disappointing in this day and age is the fact that the Multiplayer still doesn't have dedicated servers. Ill break this review up into 3 separate parts representing my opinion of each mode. First of the Campaign is a lot of fun. There are a ton of great Easter eggs to find and explore in the game. The campaign is quite long if you consider all the extra things there is to do. I have yet to finish it but I am over half way through and have barely touched the surface of all you can do in it. I would say if your not a big fan of the Multiplayer mode that the campaign has enough content alone to justify the price of the game. In terms of Graphics and sound the game is quite impressive and definitely helps immerse you into the experience. Zombies is definitely one of my favorite parts of Treyarchs Call of Duty games. It's challenging and a ton of fun to play with friends. Just in the Shadows of Evil arch there is so many secrets and different things you can do each time. Definitely requires some good team work to be successful in Zombies. Casting choice is excellent for the 4 characters and adds humor as well great story the zombies experience. Multiplayer, either you love it or you don't. I feel this year is the most refined it has been in a while. They have been working hard to balance the weapons. SMG's were a little overkill in the beginning but they have since made it to where it's more balanced now. I have enjoyed almost every map that has released initially in the game and honestly Combine is the only map I don't care for sometimes and most of the time it's really not that bad. Weapons overall have a good feel to them and specialist classes are actually really cool and add a very different dynamic that can even the playing field for the less experienced PvP individuals. Considering all the different elements that they have changed in PvP I feel it's quite impressive how well everything feels balanced. Even considering the Specialist abilities, if you have a natural talent with first person shooters you will end up supreme in PvP. Overall I feel this is one of the best renditions of the Call of Duty franchise to date. I haven't enjoyed a Call of Duty game like this since the original Black Ops.

      If I wanted to play Halo I would buy Halo. This game is some hybrid of every other first person shooter and loses the quasi-realism, that I expect from a game carrying the Call of Duty name. While I like Halo, Gears of War, and the old Unreal Championship, I don't want to play them all at the same time. Call of Duty name for me has always carried with it excellence in gaming, and every release brought with it improved game play, which is why I just purchased an Xbox One and with it Black Ops III. I wish I had come here first, because I could have saved $400 -- meaning I wouldn't have bought the console or the game. I am not a gamer but I have always loved Call of Duty. I like the realism, playing as if you are on a battle field, modeled after real places on earth, with guns and a load out that actually exists, and running, climbing and behaving in general as humans do. Sure it wasn't ultra realistic, and they have slowly edged farther and farther from the realism I liked in CoD4, but each release mostly kept in line with the spirit of the title, fixing only annoyances in game play like getting rid of holding 3 frags as in CoD4. My last experience with the Call of Duty franchise was Modern Warfare 3, which was still acceptable. I sold my 360 several months after Modern Warfare 3 was released, being limited on time available to play. My life structure has evolved again since and I have been wanting to get back into it. So as already stated I bought the One and Black Ops 3, as a way to pass the long winter nights. This installment throws away everything I loved about Call of Duty starting with CoD4: Modern Warfare, and becomes just another video game, seemingly incorporating something from everyone. It's boring and ugly. Double and triple jumping, running on walls, sci-fi powerups, stupid looking body armor, hulking characters with childish one liners at the end of the round -- just ridiculous. Don't fall for the Call of Duty name on this one.

      The story is enthralling. Multiplayer is familiar but restrictive. Zombies eats you alive. It's a good book leading you into a triumphant ending. Treyarch has introduced multiplayer aspects into the campaign. Now you are able to build and customize your weapon kits before you go on-mission It's typical of a tactical shooter like RainBow 6. This all takes place in a staging area or safe house. Complementary autopilot jet on rails mission makes an appearance. Almost looks to be copied from Advanced Warfare until your jet goes VTOL. There are a lot of button sequences on one map., Press X now. Wait for it, press X again. Then there is what seems to be a weird musical where you hit something four times to progress. Same old song and redundant. Overall the story is entertaining and the plot twist Black Ops is known for isn't as pronounced. It's like the 1812 overture without the great finish! You get one main game of Zombies that has an interesting twist with new abilities and perks. You can go beast and chew bubble gum. It's got several easter eggs to find. I generally will buy zombie games. But one big map doesn't make this great. The map is layered like an onion. There is much to do. Weapons behave nicely, Advanced Warfare Zombies agitated me because the guns just didn't hit sometimes; especially shotguns. There are a few glitches. Hands may go through your armor. Your screen will stutter at times. The story does drag on. I had 20 hours invested to finish it. Multiplayer is nothing new and a step back from Advanced Warfare. The freedom of moment experienced will be restricted here. The maps are about the same size and a kill festival. You now have a special move similar to Destiney. The hosting issues experienced in previous games may still be around. No dedicated servers it seems from what I've read. Well I think this is a good release. It feels like a solid title. Maps could be larger. I like EXO Suits and I don't like the double jumps.

      This game takes everything you loved about the core of black ops 2 and throws a futuristic spin on it. Most will automatically compare this game to last year's Advanced Warfare, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Advanced Warfare was a camp fest that had everyone trying to get on top of buildings. Black Ops 3 fixes this by making the stages run and gun friendly and restricting the ability to get on roofs. The boost ability in this game is more for slides, climbing, and wall running. The familiar weapon attachment system is back from Black Ops 2, but slightly tweaked to give you more control on how many attachments you want. It is possible to remove all perks and all utilized slots for creating a completely decked out gun with a max of five attachments and a sight. The guns in this game are abnormally good. There are quite a few quality SMGs, LMGs, Assault Rifles. Basically, something for everyone depending on how big the map is. One new addition to this game is the ability to choose a specific character for multiplayer use. Each character has a metered special ability that can be used in game. When the special ability is utilized, one character can infrared outlines of enimies through walls, another character can rewind time, and others get a weapon upgrade. This aspect makes the game feel new, but keeps the overall core mechanics familiar. The game is super solid and fun to play. The campaign, multiplayer, and zombie modes will provide more than enough bang for your buck. Just buy it already.

      I wanted to take the time and explain all of the content on the game so buyers can make an informed purchase. As many know since there are 3 different makers of the game the gameplay and content can change drastically between them. This game is made by Treyarc. If you do not follow them they are the original creators of zombies and often regarded as the best of the three. Now for the review. Campaign: The campaign allows for 4 different difficulties ranging from beginner to holy sh**. The game allows for multiplayer campaign which is a huge plus and a lacking feature from the years previous which I really enjoy. The graphics are what you would expect from such a large franchise so I won't go into detail there. In the game you are outfitted with a chip in your brain which allows you to interpret various things very quickly and also give you advantages such as hacking robots and or causing them to self destruct. The overall gameplay is not the best seen in the years of call of duty but it is well made. Smooth frame rates provide a really good experience overall. The game doesn't allow you to skip cut scenes and many are pretty long. I particularly like following the story however this could get old for some. One the campaign is complete it opens a new mode which is a zombie story mode. I personally am really excited about this however due to the long story mode and attempting it on realistic I have not made it that far yet. I will update my review when I reach that area of the game.

      Black Ops 3 is defiantly packed with content. New features have been added to every portion of the game. In campaign, while it may not be as good as some in the past, has multiple paths to take to get better positioning, a co-op option, a new ranking system, and after you've beaten the campaign once, a Nightmare mode is activated that gives the same levels, but with a new story and with zombies instead of enemy AI. Multiplayer maps have been built from the ground up to fit to the new movement system in the game, which runs flawlessly on the Xbox One. Wall running, boost jumping, swimming underwater and other features have been added to the game for the first time ever, and through all of these actions, you have your gun ready to fight back if someone attacks. The zombies maps are still in their infancy right now, in that 4 or more maps will be released in the DLC's, but Shadows of Evil, the map that comes with the game, is complex and challenging, ensuring that the player will keep coming back to get farther than they did last time. The Giant is an additional map that is added when the Hardened Addition of the game is bought, and is easier to play than Shadows of Evil, but just as fun. Overall, if you enjoyed Black Ops 2, you'll enjoy Black Ops 3. Whether it's better than the rest is up for you to decide. I enjoyed it, though.

      The COD Franchise May Be DEAD!!

      I bought my first Xbox to play COD Modern Warfare which I love. COD MW3 and Black Ops 2 are arguably the best COD's of all time. COD Black Ops 3 is either the WORST and 2nd worst of all time (Advanced Warfare being a close second). BO3 is juvenile and graphically appears as if the featured characters are the byproduct of a Halo character squashed into an Assassin's Creed character, with a touch of Rambo sprinkled in. The campaign is boring and tech/guns are more futuristic SiFi junk. I mean really this was supposed to take place 50years in the future and they make it look like they rounded up escaped characters from the original Mad Max/Road Warrior movies. The game has completely lost touch with the realistic battlefield-warfare which series was built on. Every year for the last 5 or so years I have pre-order COD, this is the last time. Next year I'll RedBox it first then maybe I'll buy...... I miss the real guns, the maps based on real locations, and characters which you could customize to reflect your own image.
