Fans of first-person shooting games can't get enough of the Call of Duty franchise, but one of the top games in that series is Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 takes the game outside of its World War II roots and sets it in 2065, which is decades after the events of the last game. You play as a member on a black ops team and try to save the world before robots can take over. As one of those soldiers, the game tasks you with getting behind enemy lines and making decisions that will save your team members and your loved ones.
The basic game actually features three different modes or way to play. Campaign mode, also known as story modes, allows you to play on your own or with up to three other players on a co-op team. As you race through the world, you must find and collect tokens that will let you upgrade your weapons and enhance your skills. The game now lets you play as either a male or female soldier and completely customize the look of your character.
A second mode found in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is a multiplayer mode. Though you have the option of choosing between nine different characters, you need to pick carefully because each one comes with his or her own skill set and weapon. While playing online, you improve your rank with each kill you make and each achievement you unlock.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 also includes a zombie mode. After picking the character you want to play, the game will thrust you into the future and show you the zombies lurking behind every corner. You score points for each zombie you take down. Patches for the game come with additional maps that you can only use in the zombie mode.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is an addition to the franchise that not all players will like. The game tends to feel more like the last game and doesn't bring in many different or new elements. Many players find that they cannot level up as quickly as they did in previous installments, and there are some minor bugs that the developers never fixed. Fans of the series will want to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 at least once.
