Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Review: Campaign

Not everyone plays the campaign mode of the Call of Duty games as some prefer to jump immediately to the zombies mode or other multiplayer matches. But doing this would be a waste as Forbes said the campaign mode of COD BLOPS 3 is ?one of the best campaign in years?, They also said that Treyarch has now addressed criticisms aired before. While the campaign is still linear, players can now tackle sections in multiple ways, Forbes said.?Forbes also enjoyed that the campaign can be played with four players online or split you screen in four for couch co-op.


Players must determine what specialist abilities they must use?in each multiplayer mode they play as the game now has several classes, Shacknews stated. The specialist abilities makes playing through old game modes feel refreshing and it makes ?for a compelling eSports atmosphere.? IGN echoed the same sentiment, IB Times reported.


Forbes?confirmed the existence of the rumored ?Nightmares? mode, a playthough of the campaign with different goals and objectives but with all your enemies now turned into zombies. According to Kotaku, the “Nightmares” mode will still enable players to play all the 11 missions of the campaign, but the order of the missions has now been changed and new dialogue was recorded to tailor-fit the new zombie-based campaign.

Meanwhile, in the regular zombies modes, the map in ?Shadow?s of Evil? is large enough with even a few secret areas you can discover, Shacknews said. They critiqued however the sudden spike in difficulty of the game as reaching only the six or seventh wave feels ?nearly impossible? to beat.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will be released this November 6 for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
