I personally have been playing call of duty ever since modern warfare came out and the campaign was awesome that was one of the reasons it was my all time favorite game but after the modern warfare series the campaigns haven't been that good
the original black ops campaign was amazing as well but its been down hill ever since
This is honestly the worst black ops campaign i have ever played.
But the multiplayer is fast and on par with most first person shooters so the game is on point.
Just wish it had a better campaign
Fast game play
futuristic Features in game
As I said in the beginning. It is a good game. But I think Activision is resting on their past reputation. It is highly unlikely that will buy another game from them...so beware.
I have been spent most of the time on Multiplayer mode, it is fun and I think it's better than AW, it cut many of the worthless stuff from AW and I LOVE the maps! I know some people complain about the maps are too small, but I hate big maps, small maps are more fun to me, it's brutal and fast paced.
Bad part - the graphics overall is kind of below average on the next gen console (I am using xbox one), maybe I was spoiled by another game - Rise of the Tomb Raider (which has amazing graphics) that I just completed, and I was expecting at least similar quality judging CoD's fame... but I am just little disappointed on its graphics.
My main issue is I did get this for its split screen capability, but it feels a bit half assed. They just scaled everything down for each screen. This makes sense, but it causes issues with HUD or menu items because they just scaled the text down a whole bunch so it is almost unreadable on our 49in TV. This is most irritating with the HUD and waypoint or enemy markers. Overall, unless you want to deal with overly tiny details, I wouldn't get this for split screen.
Campaign: The campaign allows for 4 different difficulties ranging from beginner to holy sh**. The game allows for multiplayer campaign which is a huge plus and a lacking feature from the years previous which I really enjoy. The graphics are what you would expect from such a large franchise so I won't go into detail there. In the game you are outfitted with a chip in your brain which allows you to interpret various things very quickly and also give you advantages such as hacking robots and or causing them to self destruct. The overall gameplay is not the best seen in the years of call of duty but it is well made. Smooth frame rates provide a really good experience overall. The game doesn't allow you to skip cut scenes and many are pretty long. I particularly like following the story however this could get old for some. One the campaign is complete it opens a new mode which is a zombie story mode. I personally am really excited about this however due to the long story mode and attempting it on realistic I have not made it that far yet. I will update my review when I reach that area of the game.
EDIT: The cut scenes are in fact skip-able and when playing a mission on realistic it is best to play with friends. Even when with friends a single mission will take on the order of 1-2 hours depending on the mission.
The zombie story mode is a lot of fun and depending on the difficulty you select can be very very challenging. At the beginning of a level there will be a mystery box. It's actually very well done in how they incorporate random things that have become a staple in the zombie mode. I was anxious to reach the zombie story mode, but was a bit reserved in thinking it might not be laid out very well. It is in fact is even more fun than the main story line in my opinion. I wont include any spoilers for those who haven't played either story line, but the game play is amazing.
Multiplayer: The multiplayer is standard call of duty but has the addition of a super power and wall running. I particularly don't care for the wall running or double jump and all that fancy stuff but if it must be added to the game then it is much better than the Exo suit from last years call of duty. The map designs are really nice for multiplayer and the overall game play feels very balanced depending on play style.
EDIT: I have actually come to enjoy the wall running mechanics unlike previously stated. It takes some getting use to but once you jump on a wall to begin wall running go ahead and aim down the sights and its a good method the sneak over to a player and get the kill before he realizes where you are.
The "super" powers that you can select from are a very nice touch. While some are way more useful than others I personally prefer the annihilator. Its a one shot one kill pistol and if you are an accurate shot then this is a must try. It is very effective and impossible to defend if you are accurate. Miss a shot however and the very slow reload will most likely render you dead.
Zombies: Disclaimer...I love zombies. The first and only map of black ops 3 is amazing. It's a huge map with many things to explore. In place of dogs however there are these bat like creatures that come every 5 rounds or so. Also as you increase in rounds a octopus like boss arrives and will chase you. He really isn't a big deal...easy to kill but more and more of these boss like creatures will begin to spawn each round. There are a few new additions such as gum balls and a new perk. I won't explain every detail but if you are a fan of zombies then you will enjoy the new map. Make sure to google how to find the perks as there are busted bottles that will explain the best direction to travel towards to get the desired perk. In order to turn on power etc you will need to become the "beast" which is ok I guess. It's new and different but not sure how I feel about it yet. I will say this though it's much better than the bus map that black ops 2 came with. Good luck Easter egg hunting!!!! I will add that if you are playing with a group of 4 I have found a very good strategy that will allow you to reach the higher rounds and each have their own circle. Once you open pack a punch room one player stays in there while another is just outside pack a punch while remaining in the rift. As long as you have opened all the rifts the other 2 players can simultaneously run the boxing ring circle. This will allow one to face forward and clear the path while the other is opening fire to clear the zombies chasing you.
Ok so that's a quick rundown of the changes and what to expect. Please do not downvote cause you are a fanboy or hate the game and do not agree with what I said. I am attempting to inform buyers of the changes and what to expect. Although some is my opinion of course I tried to give an honest review with no bias.
Update 12/9/15: So I have had a lot of time playing the game now and have unlocked everything that you can. Basically for the price of the game you are getting 2 full length story modes (Normal and zombie), the standard call of duty multiplayer with the addition of powers and wall running, and a massive zombie map that offers a ton of replayablility. Honestly Treyarc killed it with this game. although its not perfect since there are still glitches such as the game randomly freezing causing you to start a 2 hour mission over as well as a few other annoyances I highly highly recommend this game to those that are on the fence. IMO this is the best multiplayer experience to come from the Call of Duty franchise in a long time.

I've spent 10+ hours into this game so far and here are the experiences I've had with it
- campaign: Pretty average story, repetitive combat sections, occasional explosive/memorable moments. Slightly more fun with friends in the 4 player co-op. 6.5/10
- Multiplayer: easily the best part about this game. First few matches are gonna be extremely boring and frustrating, since you have to get used to the game's mechanics (free run mode helps out with this) but you will most likely get used to it within the first 10-20 minutes and after that you will be having no problems. Guns feel well rounded and balanced. Maps look and feel good (except for some larger maps like redwood, which look great, but don't play as well.) Graphics are a bit blurry at first, but when you get used to it, it looks amazing. nuk3town however does not have its own playlist. The only way to play it is through chaos mosh pit, bit of a disappointment. 8.5/10
- Zombies: No jetpack, No boosts, just the classic look/feel of zombies. If you liked the previous zombies, then you will love this one. 7/10
Overall, it's a pretty good eal. It also comes with the free run (jetpack/booster practice simulation) mode and paint job/gunsmith (you get to create your own camo) mode. Plus black ops arcade, and extra campaign that is based around zombies (this is different from the zombies mode.) 8.5/10 better than ghosts and slightly better than advanced warfare.
