    With no campaign, rough graphics, and Zombies connection issues, the last-gen versions of Black Ops 3 are the weakest way to play the newest Call of Duty. However, the slick gameplay, new Specialists, crazy unlockables, and revamped Zombies modes are all included and perfectly playable.

    The campaign is really bad so this version loses nothing. It is possibly better than the next gen versions as you can not accindently select campaign.

    Call of Duty Black Ops III
    Probably the most complete game in the series
    We all play call of duty games for different reasons, and all of those reasons are present in black ops 3, theres zombies mode for the gamer girls and teenage boys with 14 different maps to get your wave mode on, theres multiplayer with its jetpacks and sliding and wall climbing with all of the classic modes, pretty decent maps, but theres a destiny like addition with these moves you can pull of tht recharge as you play through the match, and there are multiple different moves for you to choose from to change strategies fo different match types.. I don’t really have much to say about the multiplayer because its not really what I play for, its fun, its addictive. But im here for the campaign which is where this special move is pulled from…
    And I was pleasantly surprised with what we get here with black ops 3..
    This isn’t my favorite campaign in the series, but I feel this campaign is by far the coolest.. it doesn’t even feel like a call of duty campaign, this could’ve easily been a standalone ip as it tells the story of man vs machine, and this campaign is a hefty 10 hours long give or take depending on the difficulty, I played half of the campaign on easy and half of it on hard..
    And this campaign does so many cool things..
    at the beginning of the store a robot just rips you apart so you spend the rest of the game as an augmented human, but of course the agments and the dni is being messed with, controlling the minds of your comrads, you spend the game trying to get to the bottom of this…
    With these augments youre able to do crazy things, each mission you cn choose if you want moves for control, chaos, or combat.. I played mostly with chaos as I felt there was an equal balance of attacks I could use against humans as well as robots, also It allows you to unleash these fireflied that eat the humans in your wy and you get to sing the fireflies song while they do that..
    but there are multiple ways you can playthrough this campaign thanks to these controls, such as hackig everything and taking control watch dogs style if youd like…
    the first half of the campaign I felt to be pretty soulless though..
    I felt like I was really just going through the motions.. but as the story goes on things just get weirder and weirder an I would have to stop myself to remind myself that this is indeed a call of duty game..
    and a war vs robots.. they play with illusions and memories here, its nice to see that the team was let of the leash and allowed to be free, and they crated something truly unique..
    Though this campaign does suffer pacing problems and annoyances if you are playing on higher difficulties..
    Checkpoints can be infuriating at times and theres this giant wall of garbage in the final chapter that I just couldn’t take anymore on hard because of its infinite spawning drones and robots.. this mission felt completely unbalanced for the difficulty, its jus just not fun or fair to have infinite drones that can kill you in 1 or 2 his while youre trying to weaken a larger enemy yards away to get in one rocket shot at a time with no progress being saved while you do this.. on top of that friendly fire is on and your team mates will run in front of you instantly failing the mission..
    I just didn’t have the patience AFTER CHIPPING away at this mission for what was at least an hour…
    though this was the only section of the game that I found to be unfair and unbalanced..
    I didn’t necessarily have fun with this campaign, but I ultimately appreciate it for trying new things
    showing players that call of duty is its buttery smooth shooting more than its military focus don’t get me wrong, this is still a military based campaign.. but its so far in the background that you hardly notice, I wouldn’t mind if call of duty contined to let one of its teams play around with its campaigns like it did here and actually step away from military a but, I dubt that would happen, but with this game I see the possibility..
    I give Call of Duty Black Ops 3
    a 7.5/10

In the old generation version does not have campaign (not that this time would be relevant), and that sucks. At least the multiplayer is great fun, even remembering very Advanced Warfare, but has very leg.O zombies mode is better than ever. Call of Duty: Black Ops III could be one of the best CoD, but the lack of the campaign, and the leg of the game will not let that happen, at least the zombies mode is incredible. 6/10 Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. If you have purchased this game for the last generation consoles, get ready to be disappointed. The servers or the lack of them are atrocious. Lack of a campaign,dedicated matchmaking,freeze and servers has this game to be God awful.Graphics are horrifying to look at. It has zombie mode and multiplayer mode. If you thinking that is great, right? Nope. Once again,you'll be disappointed. If you're think of downloading DLC for this version, you will fell very upset as well. No DLC for this version. Overall ,it's a waste of $50 dollars and you are better off buying a PS4 or Xbox One version rather than this sad excuse piece of garbage. Expand

I think its time for people to open their wallets and buy a next gen console. How can anyone not at this point is beyond me. Plenty of great games released and coming.
