This game can be referred to as one of the best games ever known to man. For those of you who don't know what Call of Duty: Black Ops III is then let's start with proper introductory of the game. This is a game developed by Trevarch and published by Activision, which is a military science fiction first-person shooter video game. Surprisingly, we have come a long way as this is the twelfth entry in the call of duty series and the sequel to the one we all love to talk about and enjoyed playing, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which was released in 2012. This game was released on November 6, 2015, on Microsoft Windows, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms. Also, there is another version that was developed by Beenox and Mercenary Technology, this version only supports multiplayer modes and was released in the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This game has received a lot of positive reviews as well as negative reviews online since its release and we are here to review it too and tell you a bit about what we have seen.
In the year 2065, the high-tech battle fields that is dominated by cybernetic implants is a problem when you have your greatest weapon, which is the soldier by your side. Black Ops 3 is awesomely created as a continuation of its predecessors when talking about the split-second, high-trigger gunplay. The difference this time around is that every aspect of the game has been programmed for co-op play, right from the techno-babble campaign to the burlesque zombies' mode. Having all the high tech weaponry to your disposal can be amazing but in the end it is your right hand buddy that saves you from the fire.
As much as the co-op play in Black Ops 3 can be very exciting and enjoyable, there is also a downside to this, the sections of the game that feels great when played together can become hectic when you are on a one man mission gameplay all alone.
The most enjoyable part of black ops 3 is the competitive multiplayer, this way you can be at your most expressive mode. There are new specialist abilities that provide you with many opportunities for you to define your own gameplay-style such as the temporary power –ups for short range teleport and a cluster grenade launcher that folds in nicely with the 10 pick loadout and score streaks. Just like the score streaks these new abilities unlock as you fight and pass challenges. This just creates short moments of happiness that give you that unfair advantage of a brief rush of power, without interrupting the natural flow of the match. But your thruster pack is the real star. The high-tech backpack give you the ability to perform all sorts of high flying stunts. This is a very fluid and wonderfully simple device to use and because all its functions are handled with a single button, you can easily focus on your enemy and not try to understand the controls, whether you are running along walls for a quick escape or power-sliding into your enemy for the perfect shot, it all takes a single button.
Finding creative ways to attack is part of the fun of every new arena and most online maps capitalize on this freedom of movement by making use of a lot of vertical elements such as billboards, narrow gaps between buildings and even high balconies all for your exploit and as you fight both on the ground and off it, this also help these battlefields feel larger than their physical size. As every good thing, the backs has a bad side and can also be your downfall, as they sound a certain way when used but you can use this to your advantage as you listen to hear another player blasting off and you turn it to their own downfall.
After the missions and the multiplayer campaigns, the zombies' game mode where you have to fend off the dead is a welcome sight for sore eyes. You and your other three teammates get to earn money, collect artifacts and explore a non ending expanding labyrinth of rooms. This gives a refreshing new angle feel from the rest of the game. But as the whole game, the zombies are also tough, so gear up and get ready for war against the walking dead.
All in all, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is a massive, varied game, but you would get more satisfaction from getting friends to play with you, whether online or on a local server. The zombies is a new cool added feature and comes into gameplay with its own play style and a whole new design but we would like to think of the selling point of the game as the multiplayer, as it tends to be the attraction of the game. Back packs, special abilities, you definitely have to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
