Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Review Round-Up

See what critics are saying about Black Ops 3.

At long last, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has arrived on store shelves and in the hands of gamers all over the world, bringing with it the biggest, most feature-packed campaign*, multiplayer, and zombies experiences in Black Ops to-date. At launch on Friday, November 6 we saw incredible response from fans and critics alike, and reviews and excitement have continued to roll in. Here’s a quick look at some of the things reviewers have had to say about Black Ops 3:

"The most remarkable thing about Black Ops 3 isn’t its tone; it’s the sheer amount of content which, at its best, is some of the greatest I’ve seen in Call of Duty." — IGN

“With not one, but two campaigns*, new multiplayer modes and more robust customization, and a Zombies mode that will suck in even the most casual of players, Treyarch has once again found a way to raise the bar.” EGM

“The campaign* is perfectly paced and entertaining throughout, the multiplayer is rich with customization and Zombies is refreshingly challenging.” — Hardcore Gamer

“These specialists feel like a great addition to the already tried-and-true systems at play here, enhancing the strong core multiplayer gameplay of the series.” — Game Informer

“Treyarch spent three years developing Black Ops III, a year longer than the industry standard development time for high-demand video games. With the extra time, they rebooted their movement system to make for a more fluid game fit for a new generation console.” — Newsweek

“There’s a lot going on in Black Ops 3 — and it’s all a blast to play." GameTrailers

“Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is an insanely full featured game. If code was a physical thing, this game disc would be bursting at the seams.”PlayStation Lifestyle

“Not only does it serve up the best campaign* in years for a Call of Duty game, it adds a number of new features to the campaign that will have you coming back to it even after you've played the story through to the end. And if you're all about the multiplayer, don't worry, Black Ops III delivers in that department as well.” GamersTemple

“Each third not only holds it's own in terms of playability, but pushes past the two previous Black Ops releases with added depth and consistency.” Digital Chumps

“Call of Duty: Black Ops III deserves your time - take a day off work to play.” Gaming Trend

Mate you are full of shit. How much did they pay you to write that dribble about one crap game

COD Black Ops III is a sloppy, lazy, slapped together, junk sandwich, that the family dog wouldn't even eat!!!! First of all if i was one of the people who purchased the 360 version i would reach out and slap someone. Talk about getting the shaft!!!!! Microsoft needs to face it, the xbox one is a complete failure!!! It is the same 360 hardware in a new case, slightly different formating of the internals, with a new controller!!!! Cutting out the campaign mode for 360 gamers is NOT going to make them run out and buy an xbox one or PS4!!!! That is the sadest display of trying to force gamers to buy a new console i have ever seen!!!! How Pathetic!!!!! Go back & fix the 360 & PS3 versions, add the campaign, get rid of these stupid "heroes" put the character customization back in & fix the d%#n servers!!!! you spend more time trying to connect & find a match than anything. This was a HUGE let down!!!! You took one of the best call of duty games made & crapped on it!!!! Black ops I & II blow this crap away. Heck even Ghost & AW were more solid than Black Ops III. If this is the future of call of duty im going back to atari! At least the second & third editions of games got better each time. NOT WORSE!!!! Scrap it & try again, try harder, don't try to cheat gamers, & do it right this time. !!!!!

hola alguien de activision debería dar órdenes para que bo3 se pueda poner de ingles a castellano compre el juego físico en inglés y no puedo ponerlo em castellano

First, I must say, Tryarch Black Ops 3 has put Advanced Warfare to shame. I love Black Ops 3 and Tryarch, you make the best for Call of Duty. I like now that there's a limit of using the super jumps, not like Advanced Warfare were you see double jumps all over the place which gets pretty annoying. Besides Tryarch's Black Ops 3 being a great game, I only have one huge complain; the error "The lobby is not joinable" NEEDS to be fixed ASAP, it's getting pretty annoying that I can't be able to join my friends' parties/lobbies for no reason. Once this error problem or bug is patched, then I will say this game is beyond perfect. Please and Thank You!

TO TREYARCH & ACTIVISION: I AND SEVERAL FRIENDS WILL NOT  BE PURCHASING ANY MORE OF THE COD OR BLACK-OPS SERIES STARTING WITH THIS BO3. I WILL NOT SPEND ANOTHER DIME FOR THE ABOVE UNLESS TWO THINGS HAPPEN. 1. THESE GAMES COME BACK TO REALITY, IF I WANT A GAME LIKE HALO, THAT'S WHAT I WOULD BUY!!!

  2. DEDICATED SERVERS, THE LAG IS RIDICULOUS, WHEN I PLAY BATTLEFIELD I DON'T GET PISSED OFF. ENEMIES AREN'T SKIPPING ACROSS THE MAP. READ THE REVIEWS ON AMAZON AND TAKE HEED OR LOSE YOUR FAN-BASE !!!!

fucking to right mate it is shit crashing all.L the time its shit

Sooooo disappointed with this game in so many ways.

1. Lobbies are hard to join.

2. The time it takes to join a game

3. Glitches, glitches and more glitches

4. Booted out of games

5. Graphics suck

I assumed as with any technology games would get better in all aspects but they continue to get worse. This game was not worth the $ I spent on it. Can't even enjoy it. Buyers Beware!

From one disappointed gamer
