    Interesting but regressing

    The games takes a very different approach then all other COD's ever made. Eliminating EXO suits and the abilities to strafe, however they kept momentary boosting. And its quite interesting with the new guns and accessories. Heck they even added score streaks and other options that made fans very happy from previous COD's. Unfortunately the game takes a sort of "arcade" turn, well at least it looks that way. The sensitivity is very stiff and non-reflexive, the sound effects sound weak and dull and the launching of grenade distances are substantially shorter by a great deal. However, the addition to swimming underwater while being able to shoot and wall running, is a twist that makes things a little different and we like different; to an extent. The only downfall to that, is exactly what I said earlier...arcade style look. It's certainly not traditional COD and perhaps relative to AW style but altered in a different fashion. There's definitely some really cool looks about it and options but the in-game feel isn't the same. I'll give it this much, the camping seems to have been cut down by a lot based on the map designs. So overall, I think COD is taking a step back rather then forward, by simply taking AW style play and redesigning it with less combat feel and more arcade feel even though it brought back Nuketown and other fan favorite options. I'll recommend it, but I'm not saying pass up the game you want first or even second to get it.

    Miss Black Ops 2

    Was expecting a lot from this game but was somewhat disappointed. I'm not a heavy gamer but enjoy the occasional shooting games. I loved black ops 2 and thought black ops 3 would be great, but was disappointed somewhat. Pros: Great graphics. New items. New maps. Specialists add extra touch to the game. Cons: Can't play Nuketown in online multiplayer. All amazing maps are not free (need season pass). Newbies will have a hard time to adjust to the game and get xp as controlling the guns and getting kills is a headache and not as free flowing as Black ops 2 (too fast in some cases). Glitches. Avid gamers will enjoy this but if you are slightly slow in hand eye coordination then you are done for. Also spotting players on the map is hard and split screen is not as clear as was in Black ops 2.

    In my opinion this is a great arcade shooter and the best COD to come out of recently. My experience in the beginning was exciting and fun to play. But it died down very quickly and just became repetitive. I understand the argument that can be with other games but I wasn't sparked to play it over and over. It may be because I've grown out of the first person shooter, especially the Call of Duty series. I tend to look at games for the bang for buck. Even though this game is completely out of comparison but games such as the Witcher 3 deserves my $60. I wouldn't drop $60 for this game but a fair price would be between $30-$40. Overall it is an enjoyable game but make sure you have friends to play with. This isn't a game for those who tend to play solo or play with friends.

    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.

    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.

    Poor splitscreen capability

    I will be honest here, I never considered getting another CoD until I heard this would have splitscreen campaign. However, I was quickly disappointed when I launched it to find huge black bars on each side. I know this is to preserve the aspect ratio or something but really? I would have to sit about 6 inches away from my 42 inch tv to see anything going on and I have close to perfect vision. Highly disappointed in that aspect. The online multiplayer is really fun though. The new specialist classes are reminiscent of Destiny's. Zombies is fun yet more challenging than ever.

    Story is wack, I'll just go ahead and say it. Aside from that, multiplayer is quick and twitchy, so its best to have a good to great network, otherwise expect lag. The vertical aspect to this game is -if you've played enough COD: Advanced Warfare - you'll appreciate, but its definitely something to get used to if you've never played it before. Zombies are a welcome addition. I know they're trying to mix things up as this series has a tendency to grow stale, but not enough was done to refresh this latest episode. Wish it required more than just run and gun tactics.

    Another Year, Another Call of Duty Game

    If you love Call of Duty, you'll love this game. I'm not really crazy about this franchise, but every year I still play it. I play through the story, dabble in multiplayer, then I'm done with the game. Black Ops 3 has the most tripy story yet and kept me interested. The new special abilities in multi-player didn't do anything special to keep me playing more than I normally would. In short, this game won't don't anything to change your opinion of the franchise. If you love it, you'll love this one. If you're in the middle, this game won't change your mind.

    Just another entry in the CoD series. The zombies mode is far too complicated--at least with the first (and only) map. The campaign is nothing special, I lost interest even when playing with someone else. I mean, Christopher Meloni was a nice surprise, but couldn't hold my interest long enough to finish it. Multiplayer, as usual, is the only thing keeping this series afloat, and even then, I wouldn't call it "balanced". If you know how to chain scorestreaks/specializations, you can dominate a match every time. I miss the WW2 settings, oddly enough.

    This game has great graphics and pretty cool game features. My son plays this a lot. As for me, I think there is just way to many options and they make it difficult to manipulate around menus and such. Especially for making classes. I've only played this a handful of times, and would probably become easier as time went on but I just want to get in a game pic a class and go. To many options makes it annoying. Guess I'm just old. Lol. But I've grown not so fond of COD ever since World at War. That was the best game ever. Anyway that's my story.

    Cool game. It's fun to see all the actors they got in the game. I don't play much multiplayer anymore. The campaign is fun but playing online is riddled with people just trying to find glitches. I used to love it but I feel it's been ruined by the community. I play zombies a lot! It's very fun but only comes with one map , at least it's good, unless you shell out another $50 for a season pass. I really feel I should give 2.5 stars because it's half a game until you spend another $50.

    Another year, another Call of Duty

    So, I told myself in the summer that I wasn't going to go in for the new Call of Duty this year. It was going to be my pre-new year, new year's resolution. Well, I failed at that. At least this game was more than the traditional Call of Dutys that have come in the past. I actually enjoy it alright, but honestly, it is a fast paced, first person shooter. We've all played them and for better or for worse it will sell a billion copies to people like me.

    Futuristic first person shooter

    Had left COD for a couple years and started playing again when I got my new PS4. Its fun and entertaining as the older COD games but alot more futuristic than I was used to. If you are looking for a classic armed forces battle you are in for a surprise. Futuristic armor enhasments, run on wall abilities, invisibility a-la HALO, and a more CGI-cartoonish movie look and feel makes this a different game all together. But its still alot of fun and I am enjoying playing it.

    I purchased this game for my son for his birthday which is two days before Christmas. He had been asking for this game for months. He seems to be enjoying it, he has a few controllers so his his brother a.d cousins like to play with him too. Game is little violent of course because you are shooting people. So I recommend for only kids 13 and over. Satisfied customer once again. And was glad it was in stock when I came in because it was out at most stores.

    I thought they stepped it up have some okay modes but it still feels something is missing from these games. The graphics and online is top notch for this generation of consoles for the PS4 side. It reminds me of a mix of Halo, Gears and Titanfall when it comes to some aspects of the game but its average game to me. Good story like in every COD video game my favorite is you can team up with 4 other players and play story now which is good

    I recently got back into console gaming after a few years off due to some extra free time and some good games coming up. I've always been a fan of shooters, and primarily the COD family of games. While this game is fun, I miss the realism of the modern combat and World at War games. This game is fun, but a little too sci-fi for me. If you liked the previous versions of this title and fast-paced shooters you'll like this one, too.

    After 200 years they still haven't fixed the spawn mechanics of this game. You spawn, you die instantly. Repeat 30 times until you throw your controller against the wall. Every map is like 30 feet long in any direction so every match is just a giant storm of bullets and people spraying everywhere. Seriously makes me miss the days of World at War and others that had bigger maps and varying gameplay styles.. Frown.

    Probably the worst black ops I've seen

    This game is bad.. very very VERY BAD! I had fun for a few days or so and then I realized how bad this game is. How the heck does a pistol kill me with 2 shots but when I shoot a guy, point blank range, with a shotgun, he survives?! The game developers really should stop making future games with mega jumps and go back to old fashion running! At least this game makes up for advanced warfare and cod ghosts

    As someone who works full time, I don't have much time to play games and wasnt even gonna buy this. Got it for Christmas and most my friends had it so I began playing online, as that's really the only mode I do, mostly for the social aspect. Def not the best cod, spawns are funky, many OP weapons, and I feel like I die too often. In the past my average kill/death ratio was about .9, wheras now it's .55.

    Same CoD, New Game

    The game is fun. Seems like a good new addtiion to the COD family. I like the storyline mode and that you can play it co-op online with friends. PvP is good, but my friends and I have had some trouble entering matches as a party when we have multiple players using the same console. The problem seems intermittent and seems tied to the CoD servers. Hopefully they fix it, but other than that a solid game.
