With fun 4-player co-op, new powers, and a fleshed out Zombies mode, Black Ops 3 is the biggest Call of Duty game yet.
Woah...totally didn't see this one coming. /s
I'm looking for that "sponsored by Activison" fine print.
IGN actually gave very similar score as Halo 5 for example. Way they scored was not out of norm for this game. Halo 5 has 85 Metascore and IGN gave 9 BO3 has 84 metascore and IGN gave 9.2 maybe it is a decent game?
Actually Activision is really glad IGN is full of tards who are too limited to understand what makes a good game. No payment needed.
Well its better than halo 5 single player haven't played online yet
Its actually really good, really interesting story line that follows the story of BO2 after Raul Mendez fuk everything up, plus the zombie nightmare story mode after you beat the campaign is a huge plus. MP is amazing again like the old days
Well since they overrated Advance Warfare so much and this game is much better, it wouldn't make since to give it a lower score than Advance Warfare.
Oh IGN... how predictable! Expect you guys got very well paid by Activision.
Why would you say that?
Hope you're being sarcastic. Look at the massive BO3 ads on the site. And the fact IGN has rarely given COD a score less than 9 despite the fact it's nearly always a rehashed game. This has been the problem with major AAA franchises as of the last couple of years, especially COD. It's like reviewers set up a boundary of 8.0 that it cannot go below. And for the COD series, that boundary is 9.0 Even Halo 5 doesn't deserve to be in the 9.0 boundary. Though it's definitely better than BO3.
@Eamon "Look at the massive BO3 ads on the site." GameSpot had CODBO3 ads as well and they gave it a 7. So?
Well a good number of people claim that Polygon is paid off, so why is it so hard to believe that IGN might be also?
its obvious that "Ignorants" are somehow connected to Activision because its impossible to score 9.2 for a game that looks worse than ever before.. and they on purpose use fake future stuff, so there is no possibility to do something wrong since its all SCI FI, with jumps! this milking program fails hard!
@MasterCornholio, I didn't notice much BO3 ads on Gamespot. If there are any, it's not overly massive in your face like IGN.
So did ms pay for the halo review as well?
How naive can you be? Don't you think big companies pay-off for favourable reviews, and yes, include Microsoft and Sony in those big companies? Don't tell me you still believe in Santa Clause and the Easter bunny?
About 95% of IGNs reviews for Xbox one games are way above metacritic scores.
You guys are crazy. The most Hyped game of this generation Published By ACTIVISION Got a disappointing 7.8 score over at ign. That game is called DESTINY. Dont assume someone is getting paid under the table because of a high score.
Right bc the story was bad nonexistent. Now tell me why iGn didn't lower the score with halo 5 when the story too was also bad? Bc it's a biased review. Edited autocorrect phone stuff
LMAO never change IGN, never change.
"IGN, IGN never changes"
Not a single negative?
yeah that looks suspicious if you look at their other reviews you’ll see even the games that had 9 score have at least one single negative point
Yeah exactly. Shouldn't there be a couple negatives considering the game isn't a perfect score? I dunno about that.
Games can be 10/10 with negative points, and Games can be 9/10 with no negatives. Games aren't perfect. Review scores aren't math.
I think it's because it got a higher score than Halo 5. Everyone shocked
P2p in 2015, not connected to COD servers issues, framerate drops in SP, crap story, but that's ok cause story doesn't matter in COD, there's a few negatives that they didn't mention
Well, Treyarch are the superior CoD devs.
I personally think Sledgehammer outdid Treyarch with Advanced Warfare Zombies and MP. Haven't played BO3's campaign yet so I'm not sure about that. Black Ops 3 just feels a bit dated, especially the jumping and wall running in the MP.
Personally, I disagree with your assessment. I felt Black Ops 3 jumps and wall running felt more natural than AW. The zombies and campaign are also still best with Treyarch.
My feelings exactly. It's actually a great game. COOP is lots of fun.
Whelp , that's IGN for ya ... they've been CoD fanboys since ever , so I'm not sure if i can trust their review or not ...
Although IGN's practices are dubious at best (if not, downright unethical and damaging to the industry), I'm still convinced this is the first worthy Call of Duty game since...maybe the first Black Ops? Can't deny it's quite a good value package for what it is. Reviews across the board have been rather glowing.
suck on my chocolate salty balls put in your mouth and suck um lol
That's also a good point, never thought of that.
If halo 5 didn't achieve 60fps that would prob get lower score...but how good is COD BO3s fps?
This game got so much variety and modes its ridiculous even a mode if you get shot once your dead. The enemy A.I., split-screen, Multiplayer are all great. This whole game is total package. Zombie mode is just icing on the cake lol. I hated this game for so many years after COD 4 modern Warfare and now they're listening to the players about time. You definitely getting your money worth and I'm the one who use to troll COD the most in the past especially on IGN smh lol. It's like I'm dreaming or in wonderland. Good job Treyarch!!!
Oh I'm not saying bad about the game glad it got so much to offer deff getting it
Where have you been? Treyarch have been delivering Zombies, MP and campaign since [email protected] BO3 is no different...
Black ops 3 is different. Content and value are amazing. 1st cod ever to offer so much content for $60
Drops frames everywhere in SP.
it's true, but multiplayer where it matter is smooth as silk.
IGN are a reflection of the gaming mainstream. The majority still buy into Call Of Duty hence the high score. IGN are not being paid off by Activision they are speaking to their audience.
I predicted a 9.2. IGN loves CoD and Treyarch is the best dev. I don't get all the hate. It's a great game. Only real problem I have is it doesn't have One in The Chamber and Sticks and Stones.
Next year around January I might jump on the co-op. Heard its very fun.
What struck me was the simple fact it didn't have no "cons", So why not give it a perfect score then?
black ops 3 actually is very very good. on ps4 there's neat sound effects constantly coming out of controller. it's the best version 9.5
I actually agree. I bought it on a whim(last COD I bought was BO2) and I'm actually surprised at how fun and fluid it is. I was actually expecting to hate it, but you can tell Treyarch had nothing but fun making this game.
Yeah, it's true. The game have more modes than other titles. You got Freerun, Nightmare and Dead Ops 2.
I hate those sounds out of the controller. It even feels more like a toy the ever. Kiddo controller wuh
A kiddy console usually has fewer games. Go back to your limited toy box one.
ah yes ,who can forget the IGN+COD combo. classic
These games always get great reviews no matter what. By that I mean whether they are actually good or not. Sites need $ to operate.
Game is awesome def worth a 9.2 best Cod since BLOPS 1
The most deepest COD to date
most deepest? can't have least deepest or somewhat deepest...
so no mention of the awful pc or last gen versions,awful servers on all platforms & the bad campaign
the pc version is great for me, I only have a 7950 which is a card from 2012.
The PC version isn't awful. You must have an awful PC.
guilty pleasure for me, I hate myself.
cod wil always get a 9 no matter what.. even if they release a new one every week.. load of bs
Habibi i agree with you most of the time but this time your wrong i am even a sub on your channel but this is one of the best cods in a long time i guess you just love to hate cod
did you hear the story of the kid and wolf? the kid cried wolf many times and it was false.. and when the wolf realy came he cried and nobody helped him :p
Basically , if you liked Black ops you will like this one , just different content with same quality. I don't expect these fans to understand why people like me don't fall for this. I killed 40 , died 5 times in TDM in about 10 matches. I am good at it and i feel like i can even kill 60 . I still don't see why it is a 10 or a 9 or even an 8 compared to other games that really evolve compared to their previous installments. Guess just 3 extra small modes made them go nuts. It's the same game (game mechanics , nothing is evolved in gameplay or graphics or story), little worst graphics then AW with some extra content. Same stupid respawn and everything. I did like zombie mode at WaW but overtime it just felt the same experience nothing new to wow me or made me interested but i understand why people love it. So for me it's not a reason to buy this game but if i ever want to rate this game i would definitely make it a plus but the rest is not that important.
Well a big plus for me is the local co-op campaign. My son loves to play with me. Taking a bit to get used to not being able to jet forward/down/ side like in advanced warfare. I liked the kill streaks better in AW because you could customize each one. I am not good at getting kill streaks so it is hard to get them with out dying. In AW I could make it so even if I died I could get some eventually. I like it overall but had some server connection issues for the first couple of hours.
Screw halo, screw locke, COD is the new king, the true return of the king of FP'S
Fitting your own stereotype well I see IGN...
Even without this review Ign hasn't been a reliable review site in long time. Not that it will stop people from checking.
