Have You Played... Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3?

It's brighter and more colourful than you realise

Featured post

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3‘s multiplayer is fun. I know, right? You’re waiting for the but, in which I’m going to remind you that its willy-waving jingoism is uncomfortable, its level design is brown and dull, its killstreaks reward the best players with frustrating special abilities… but mostly those things aren’t true.

Black Ops 3 adds lady soldiers to the battlefield. Black Ops 3, like other Call of Duty games before it, has largely solved the unlock problem by removing overpowered toys and rewarding more than just kills. Black Ops 3 is set in a world where cities are being flooded and reclaimed by nature, meaning the levels you’re fighting on are green and lush.

I still think it has some of the same problems as all Call of Duty games, which I wrote about here. It’s still frustrating at times. People still don’t play the most interesting modes.

But at its core, it’s fun. A fast-paced arena shooter with double-jumps and wall-running, satisfying weapons, and character customisation that lets you play as a colourfully painted robot.

I haven’t played the singleplayer though.
