Cold War's quiet times are more memorable than the loud ones, even if the story’s ambition outweighs its execution.
Ouch. Could this be a sign of decline for the series? Find out on the next episode of....
Modern Warfare reboot had a great campaign in my honest opinion. MP full of campers but that's like complaining of little kids on fortnite or toxicity on overwatch
This just means IGN finally ran out of 8s...
The series has been in decline for nearly a decade.
I just got this but realised I've never played BLOPS III. So I'm doing that now. It's playing nice and smooth on my PS5. Question, can I install just the campaign and not the multiplayer?
Well ... BOIII is very vaguely related to BO2 story. You're playing just for the campaign?
Yep. Antisocial gamer. Don't play online. And I've realised from the futuristic setting III probably has little to do with Cold War. .
Antisocial? XD. Definitely Nope. I was drawn towards CoD 1 on PC because of its graphics and campaign. I tried MP only when CoD4 garnered huge popularity. Very few people care for the CoD campaigns anymore. So how are you finding the campaign of BOIII? It wasn't bad but the pacing could've been better. For me, I enjoyed CoD4 and MW2 campaigns the most, closely followed by BO1. BO2 was mediocre even though it introduced new stuffs. Infinite Warfare campaign was also surprisingly good.
People forget the first couple of CODs weren't about the MP. It was for the campaign. But then it got stale in the third game. 3 about WWII was one too many and the series had to reinvent itself.
You should add the Zombie Chronicles version of BO3 to your library from the PS Plus Collection (maybe that's what you've already done). Lots of classic zombies maps added in 2017 through that map pack. Zombies was easily the best thing about BO3. The campaign in BO3 isn't worth playing, tbh.
For me the first Black Ops is still by far the best.
CoD4, MW2 and BO1 have the best campaigns. And from 'future' series amongst AW, BOIII and IW; Infinite Warfare has the best campaign.
BO2 was still very good, and BO3 had the best zombies (if you bought the DLC). Zombie Chronicles is free through PS Plus now as well. Overall, the franchise did start to slowly go downhill with MW3 (Ghosts was like an avalanche, haha).
I dislike their new 10 point score system, mainly because game outlets like IGN are reluctant to give out scores any less than a 7. This means an 8 becomes average, and it effectively becomes a 4 point score system (7-10) for AAA games. I still believe there is a big difference between a 9 and a 9.5.
They got rid of the decimal scoring but could've kept the 0.5 increments. 7.1, 8.7, 9.4 might be complex to some, but 7.5, 8.0, 8.5 is better than straight 7, 8, 9.
I'm digging the campaign personally. Cold War themes really pump up my excitement
I’m glad to hear that. I was gonna get this on PS5. Some footage I saw of the campaign looked pretty fun and interesting. I rather enjoyed MW from last year personally.
It needs a low score just for how much space it takes up.
On a side note, i really like the cast in this COD. If this was made into a movie, i think these cast of actors would fit the roles well: Brad Pit as Russell Adler Mahershala Ali as Lawrence Sims Hugh Jackman as Frank Woods Mark Strong as Jason Hudson Leonardo DiCaprio as Alex Mason Lily Cowles as Helen Park Jamil Khoury as Lazar Azoulay John Travolta as Perseus Anyone (who can play Reagan) as Ronald Reagan I really hope Activison finally make a movie based on this instalment in the franchise
Jackman would make a great Frank Woods
