    Popular but not my taste

    I only viewed the trailer and sales figures as this is a very popular game before purchasing this game and it seemed like it had a lot of action but it's not really my taste for a military game as it has some fictional characters like zombies in it and there are no fighter jets. I like a game thats more realistic and similar to the military like Battlefield 4 with fighter jets (including option packs like naval strike and final stand ) and a lot of military vehicles. I think the call of duty games have great graphics and are very interactive but I would prefer if they were more like the military similar to Call of duty modern warfare PS3 which at least contain fighter jets in actual cities like NY, England, France & Germany.

    I had sworn off CoD and their yearly failed attempts at something new and different many years ago. By chance, I was convinced by friends (who had all gotten a PS4 at around the same time) to give this one a shot...and I was completely blown away. Here's the breakdown: For $60 or less you will get 1. A complete and entertaining single player campaign. 2. Another complete and entertaining zombie single player campaign. 3. A Mirrors edge style free-running course mode, with multiple challenging tracks. 4. Classic zombies multiplayer mode. 5. Regular multiplayer mode. Keep in mind, that's the same amount of money you would spend on games like Battlefront or Siege for about a fifth of the game. Cannot recommend this one enough.

    This game was and is the very best of the best FPS (FIRST PERSON SHOOTER) Title out for next Gen consoles PERIOD! TREYARCH throws in three ways to play the game outside of just multiplayer The co-op campaign is non stop fun and if your a loan wolf that's cool too its just as fun as single player campaign but the best part is WE HAVE THE CHOICE NOW THAT NOBODY ELSE HAS OFFERED TO DATE ON CONSOLE. but let's just wait cause the whip cream and cherry are by far the extreme 1940's zombie free for all placed in a gritty and grimy MORG CITY THAT shows us how focused and determined Treyarch were to put out a BLOCKBUSTER TITLE YET AGAIN! If you play any next Gen console this is the title to be after 100% greatest to date.

    Times change and so do games

    Reading many reviews before purchasing this next title made me a bit weary. Many people were complaining the game was too different because it has strayed pretty far from the original idea of real war. The call of duty franchise has been around for quite a while, times change and with that so does gaming. Although there is less of an actual warlike feel to this title it still delivers a great campaign mode and multiplayer as well. I don't regret buying it after all and is consistently the game i turn my ps4 on for (just got it for xmas). So all in all not like the rest but definitely still playable if you like change and are okay with some futuristic gameplay with this genre.

    I'm a big COD fan and I believe Treyarch is the best developer of the COD line. The previous COD games made by the other developer companies are not as good. I'm more of a multiplayer fan and the maps and graphics are just great. They eliminated or changed a lot the ways people would camp and hide in previous maps like Nuketown. Of course that creates new camping sites but whatever. The multiplayer game modes are great, especially the new Safe Guard mode. And the way you can jump and slide is a lot more controlled and less willy and wild in this game as opposed to the previous ways in Ghost and Advanced Warfare. This should be on your buy list if you're a COD or FPS player.

    Same old COD

    Picked this up, as I am a fan of the Black Ops series in the COD universe. As someone who no longer is a yearly purchaser of this series I have to say it was "meh." Nothing really sticks out to me ... run, shoot, die .... rinse and repeat. Game plays well, with no real issues but as an adult gamer, its not my cup of tea anymore. Multiplayer holds my interest when I play with friends, the story mode hasn't changed, it feels like every other COD I've played. Graphics are decent, nothing eye popping but the sound is great. Weapons feel great as well. Die hard COD fans will like this, as someone who has stopped following this series the last few years ... its just another COD.

    i guess the crux of any call of duty review is whether you like to play twitch style shooters. if you like to set up long distance sniping and ambushes over vast fields, you would probably be better off with the battlefield series. they've added in some perks over the previous black ops like wall walking, thrust assisted jumping, and specialists who have weapons that could be classified as noob enhancements. the single player is decent, but the storyline just goes off the rails like every cod game after modern warfare has gone. if you plan on being online, expect the same lag, the same campers, and the same cheap shots that are in every iteration of the series.

    The Call of Duty franchise has garnered a reputation over the years of putting out the most basic and overrated games in history, popular only for their simplicity and catering to a modern primal fascination with gun violence. However, each game has also managed to be different in its own way thanks to the variety of publishing teams that get assigned to each new game. Treyarch, who helmed the fairly decent Black Ops 2, was also in charge of Black Ops 3, and has brought new life into the series. With a freshly updated combat mechanics and a unique class system, this game gives a much needed update to the shooter genre.

    Fun game, but could be better.

    The campaign is decent, the graphics are solid. What this game really lacks is what the old call of duty games had which is a tactical combat environment capable of allowing multiple styles of gameplay (aka long distance, short and medium)...this game is the ADHD branch of shooters, very fast paced, not very tactical and requires about 0 attention span because if you evade a gun fight, you can just sprint around the corner and begin a new one. I prefer Battlefield to this game 9 times out of 10, but sometimes you just want to play a cracked out shooter with super-fast combat. It's good at that, but don't expect a military-accurate experience by any means,

    New COD and Same Feel

    First off, this is not a bad installment in the series. This is probably the best COD on the next generation consoles so far. The multiplayer is fun and its better than Advance Warfare. The jumping and movement feels more natural and the shooting feels better. They also added a "Destiny" super in the game that adds to the game but isn't overbearing. Zombie mode is still fun as ever. Second, I havnt really gotten into the single player, but its the usual linear gameplay. The only thing I didn't like is that you don't have multiple endings, so there is little replay value. Overall, If you are a fan of the series....DON'T MISS OUT!!! 4/5 is my score

    Still the best COD in my opinion

    This is by far the best COD game in my opinion. Infinite Warfare has disappointing graphics and the gameplay isn’t as fluid and fast as this game. WWII is interesting but if a “flash to the past” setting is your thing I feel that Battlefield 1 did it better. This game has an amazing campaign and an even greater multiplayer where you can easily dump hour upon hour into. If you haven’t played it yet be sure to give it a try. There’s tons of modes, upgrades and unlockables; plenty of weapons and maps too. If you haven’t played it yet be sure to give it a chance. You won’t be disappointed.

    Black Ops 3 is pretty good. If you loved Black Ops 2, you'll like this one.(However, the story is kind of the weakest of the BO universe) The campaign is now co-op meaning you and 3 friends can grind through it. The multiplayer is fun like always. Zombies may be a bit confusing at first but once you get it down, it feels great mowing down hundreds of zombies once again. There are microtransactions, however, Treyarch does a good job of letting you get items without having to spend a single penny The only complaint I have is that like always, sometimes there is just bad connection to the Activision servers and the "host" of the match.

    Great COD for this Console generation

    Call of Duty Black Ops 3 brings back what call of duty was about before this generation of consoles released back in 2013. The multiplayer is back to the levels of fun there was in black ops 2 in 2012, balanced entirely around treyarch's new movement system that harks back to previous call of duty's with boots on the ground compared to the fast 3d movement of advanced warfare last year. Zombies is back and better than ever. Campaign can once again be played with friends online, this was last in 2008 in World at War, making the experience overall good as you can play with friends in any mode in the game, Good game, recommend a purchase.

    Solid First-Person Shooter

    The multiplayer is loads better than I expected it to be. I took a break after Modern Warfare 3 from all of the CoD games, picked up AW last year and returned it within a day. Black Ops 3 has fixed many of the issues I had with AW (Mostly the crazy high mobility, which has been slightly toned down). There's enough of a variation that I don't feel like I'm playing the same game that I always have. Not a huge fan of the Zombies mode, but I never have been, My only major issues with the game is that I purchased the season pass, yet I still have to GAMBLE with micro-transactions for the DLC weapons, which is just greedy.

    I pre-ordered this game due to the fact that I like how Treyarch has treated COD as of late. The graphics aren't the best but they're good enough for me. I loved how the first player game played out. You can configure your powers and change up the weapons you're using plus the add ons. I found it more entertaining than anything post modern warfare. Now on to the multi player, yes black ops has that crazy jump that was added by advanced warfare but actually made it better and easier to use. Not to make this a longer review if you like COD and are thinking about getting it I will help you, go and get it now it's great!

    The Call of Duty franchise had been slipping away for the last few years now, but Treyarch always seems to still deliver when it's their turn. This time is no different. Great online multiplayer, have not had more than just a couple of games with connectivity issues. Campaign was fun playing with friends, as it is now co-op, although the story was kind of stupid. Zombies is well done, and just difficult enough to keep you coming back. Overall, Treyarch put so much into this game, it has a ton of reasons to keep putting the disc in. I can see myself paying this game next year when Infinity Ward releases their COD.

    We all know that Ghosts sucked. This one doesn't. Graphics are a cut above what has been before. Single player story is a bit murky but it serves well in getting you used to what you are going to be using in the multiplayer. As for multiplayer, it is really good but I'm getting tired of all the futuristic new age weapons and exoskeleton stuff, but this game puts it to better use than advanced warfare did. Zombies is a bit of a new beast in this one, and I am a fan. It's a good game to play until they bring out an updated version of World at War or Modern Warfare 3, which is what all the gamers are asking for.

    Best call of duty game out

    It is one of the best call of duty games out on the market to date. The graphics on the ps4 are second to none and the gameplay is as smooth as water. The addition of nightmares, a story mode for zombies, makes the game feel complete. The booster feature isn't as annoying to use as it was with advanced warfare, but still plays an integral part of the game. The ability to walk on walls is a great addition because it adds to your strategy of gameplay. If you're looking for a great refresh of an old classic with enough changes done to it to warrant a new version then get your copy of black ops 3!!

    Well here is my honest review...I've bought nearly every COD that has been released since COD4 and I can tell you I really enjoy what BO3 has brought to the table with running on walls to boosting to climb. I also really enjoy the story mode to get a better insight of how the story is changing from generation to generation with each release of a particular series such as MW, MW2, MW3, BO, BO2, BO3 etc. Get it!!! When I feel the need to get some quick TDM or Safeguard games in on Ground War I just hop on COD BO3 to enjoy that 1 hour of gametime I have to play because of my busy lifestyle.

    From an unbiased perspective, Black Ops 3 isn't too bad. I've played Black Ops 1 and 2 back on Xbox 360 and loved it. Decided to try out BO3 and I gotta say, the graphics are superb. The colors and graphics are rich and vibrant. Story mode was alright; wasn't my cup of tea. If you do want to fully enjoy the game and get your money's worth, online multiplayer is the way to go. Playing with friends is always fun in my opinion. Unfortunately, that is the way to go with these next-generation game consoles.. "You wanna have fun? Gotta buy a subscription to our online multiplayer services".
