    Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is absolutely stuffed to the brim with content on all fronts, and nearly none of it feels like filler.

    While there are some very minor cracks in the foundation, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 still proves itself to be an excellent continuation of not only the Black Ops series but also of the entire Call of Duty IP. If you're looking for a fun, challenging, and comprehensive new-gen shooter experience, Black Ops 3 should definitely tide you over for the next several months (possibly years) at least.

    Surprisingly enough, the newest Call of Duty delivers a grand presentation and an interesting story. Its massive scope of different modes and new tactical options compared to the predecessor make this game an excellent comeback. The only downsides are a lacking enemy AI and missing challenge on some of the difficulty settings as well as a short single player campaign.

    While the campaign story itself feels silly, co-op is a marvelous addition and a far better way to experience the narrative for those that don't feel like killing zombies. Meanwhile, multiplayer feels like a huge difference from previous CoD games and much of it is for the better. With a faster pace, more fluid movement, and cool Specialist abilities, it feels like a refreshing twist on the CoD multiplayer formula.

    The graphics get a little prettier, the story gets a little darker, and another Call of Duty counts time as we march together toward death.

    A bit better than the Ghosts, but worse than Advanced Warfare – new Call of Duty is awkwardly trying to make some changes in single player, but adding a bunch of technical problems in the same time. Multiplayer it is flawless as usual. [Issue#258]

    It’s no surprise Treyarch also has no idea how to establish or develop a character. Which is an okay thing to have no idea how to do. Treyarch is making a shooter, not writing a Chekhov play. But Treyarch’s sin is not knowing this about themselves. Treyarch’s sin is shoving your face into a trough of narrative slop and holding your head down for minutes at a time. And furthermore thinking this is what you want. Long bouts of serious and seriously incoherent story. I have a suggestion for people who make games: if your storytelling skills aren’t up to par, if your game isn’t conducive to telling stories, don’t spend so much time on the story.

Campaign was a typical COD campaign and was quite good. What I liked was that you could play the campaign with 3 other people. Multiplayer is fast paced and very fun. I don't see a lot of hackers so that's good. But some of the weapons are too overpowered. Especially the ones you get from crates. I'm ok with the futuristic setting but I know some people don't like it. Zombie mode is great fun and puzzling. Overall it's a great game with a lot of fun content. It's totally worth the price.

Wow, just... wow. How this stuff continues to get released is baffling, and completely unacceptable. The game itself is decent if you can run it properly. It adds a few new, interesting things, but ultimately doesn't expand beyond what we expect from a typical COD game. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Estaba muy ilusionado con este CoD, sobre todo por quien lo hace, acostumbrados a sus buenos ports para PC como Black Ops 2. Pero es una vergüenza lo mal optimizado que está y el lag que hay siempre, seas host o no, es habitual ver +100 de ping en la mayoría de usuarios en partida, da igual que conexión tengas, 1 mb o 300 mb...y ya que haya que tenre un pc con +8GB para que vaya estable en la mayoría de casos, es una pasada. Ni The Witcher 3...

    Luego, lo he probado con mi portátil con una 840m un i7 y 8GB de Ram, con el que corro BF4 en Ultra a 768p y +30 fps y si lo bajo a medios +60 fps sin problemas... y aquí tengo que bajar la resolución a 720p y rescalado a 600p para que vaya estable a 35fps con todo en bajo. Lo dicho, vergonzoso, y más aún habiendo tenido 3 años de desatollo y una beta pública casi 3 semanas entre todas las plataformas.

    Sin contar todo esto, y hablando solo del juego... pienso lo que pensé en la beta: hemos visto los mejores mapas y el resto estoy seguro que serán muy genéricos y pasilleros. Con el 4º mapa de la beta ''stronghold'' se empezaron a cumplieron mis sospechas, y ahora con la salida del juego se terminan de confirmar... mapas ratoneros llenos de ventanas y huecos, perfectos para Camperos. Solo 3 o 4 se salvan en mi opinión (Combine, Evac, Hunted y Nuk3town) y uno de ellos es de bonus por reserva y reciclado de los otros dos Black Ops. Sin contar todas las cosas ue tienes para guarrear: minas trampas y eléctricas, poder ver las huellas de los enemigos, mira térmica para camperos, sexto sentido para ver en el mini mapa sin uav cuando tienes enemigos cercanos, armas que no hace falta ni apuntar para matar... da puto asco.

    3/10 por el modo zombis que es divertido y la campaña que es entretenida y rejugable (cuando te la pasas una vez te la puedes pasar una segunda con una historia un poco diferente mezclando zombis). El resto, BASURA.

    Why is on Metacritic the first few reviews are always positive and they always have 1/2 reviews and ratings? Is this a tradition or those areWhy is on Metacritic the first few reviews are always positive and they always have 1/2 reviews and ratings? Is this a tradition or those are "payed" reviews? With frases like "buy it". A real reviewer would never write that: they have no interest in you paying for the game.
    Obviously anyone who played CODBO3 won't give a 10 rating. I have a 560 gtx, the minimum is 460 and it won't run above 10 fps. It is the same old COD for console fanboys, as it is for a decade now.

Treyarch and activision team up once again to release a horrible product. First of all the graphics. What is with the cartoonish graphics ? i feel like im playing in a bugs bunny cartoon. The music is terrible , sound effects generic , and gameplay so arcadish it makes ya want to puke. This game was designed soley for the consoles then direct ported to the PC , not hard to tell. Comeon . . did any of the first several call of duty games for PC have gamepad support . . . .NOOO. Dont waste your money on this garabage if your a serious FPS player. Now if your a 6-12 year old ,, your probably gonna love it.

    Buy Star Wars Battlefront in a week when it comes out. Designed on PC for PC. Graphics are amazing , gameplay from the beta was excellent. This game is for the serious FPS player.
