Just OK....not as good as Black Ops 2
20 March 2016 | by MoviePro223See all my reviews

Originally we purchased this game on Xbox 360, which is the "half version" of the game which only allows you to play some of the features Call of Duty Black Ops 3 has to offer. That was truly a disappointment and if I was basing my review on solely that I would give it a 3/10. It was truly horrendous, and the server for Xbox 360 is nothing short of an total failure. The lobby and games just abort and kick you out for no reason. Truly a frustrating experience. Then we had the chance to experience the game in all its glory as it was made to be experienced. On Xbox One this is truly a different game all together. But still I could not shake that the previous Black Ops (2) was so better. Mainly because it was very user friendly and offered game-play that was easy to figure out, while at the same time continuing to prove itself challenging. The maps on Black Ops 3 are not as inventive in multi-player, they all kind of run together and none stick out as being truly epic (except maybe the new rendition of nuke town). The zombie map however is very inventive, but the level of symbolism this one took on was just annoying. Origins in Black Ops 2, is still their most inventive map in my opinion. But see for yourself, I give it a 6.5/10 in all.
