Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Game Review


Austin DeFrank, Editor

Call of Duty has been an ongoing video game franchise since 2003 with the very first release of their game simply titled “Call of Duty”. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is the newest addition to the series whose release date is November 6th, 2015. The past Call of Duty: Black Ops titled games have been a huge success and the third Black Ops is the biggest one yet hitting next gen consoles.


Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has all of the same features as the other Call of Duty games but more! Black Ops 3 features a zombies game mode that has been seen in the past Black Ops games with new characters and new maps. Black Ops 3 includes a couple new game modes that have never even been heard of in past Call of Duties. Safeguard is a new game mode where one team has a robot that starts on one of the two teams’ spawn and they have to defend it until it reaches the other end of the map. The team who manages to keep it alive the longest and reach the other side wins. Another new game mode is Free Run. Free Run is just as it sounds, your character has a set track and you as the player are supposed to overcome obstacles by jumping, sliding, wall running and shooting targets.


The campaign mode in this game is awesome. The beginning may seem a little boring but soon things take a major turn and the game will grab all of your attention and pull it all towards the storyline. Unlike most other Call of Duty games in the past, the campaign for this game isn’t a short thing to just pass right through, the story has some length to it and it is very well put together. Also unlike other Call of Duty games there are special unlocks pertaining to the different modes of the game. There is a lot more to earn in this game than most others.


The Multiplayer aspect of the game is amazing. The servers right now are running a bit slow but that’s only because they’ve been up for only a few days. The guns, customization, the unlocks, the camos and the maps are all amazing and well put together. The multiplayer has a new feature that allows players to pick and choose their favorite specialist that will grant them special abilities throughout the matches. This has not been seen before in any other Call of Duty game.


Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is an absolute must have if you are looking for a great game to play and enjoy. The multiplayer is amazing and very well put together. The campaign is very intriguing and it has a great story to it. This game is amazing in every way there is. This game has a rating of 9.2 out of 10 by IGN.
