Test-Übersicht zu Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

How would I describe it in a single word? Fantastic! If this is the kind of work a three-year development cycle can give a AAA game, then I don't want to see Black Ops 4 until 2018, and counting down the days to it's release.
Black Ops III is the deepest Call of Duty experience to date. With not one, but two campaigns, new multiplayer modes and more robust customization, and a Zombies mode that will suck in even the most casual of players, Treyarch has once again found a way to raise the bar.
Digital Chumps -
At $60, it's almost too good to be true. Black Ops III is the deepest Call of Duty ever. That I do know.
The most robust offering in the franchise this generation.
Call of Duty Black Ops 3 marks the comeback of Treyarch into the CIA's dirty programs with an amazingly large solo game. With so much content, we can only regret that the devs haven't spent more time on rejuvenating the multiplayer.
Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 offers the most complete and mature campaign we've seen to date, delivers a seamless multiplayer, and brings back the funny Zombies Mode, which this year comes with a lot of secrets and mysteries to uncover.
IGN Spain -
The biggest CoD game yet released. Three are its legs, and all of them are equally important. Maybe the campaign is the weakest leg and the multiplayer the strongest, but any of them is noteworthy.
Hardcore Gamer -
This is basically five standalone games wrapped into one deep package. While it will have DLC released for it, there's enough content out of the box to keep players busy until the next Call of Duty and probably some time after that. The campaign is perfectly paced and entertaining throughout, the multiplayer is rich with customization and Zombies is refreshingly challenging. The only real black mark is a story teetering on the on the brink of pretension, but the existentialism of it is undeniably fascinating.
In the end it is still Call of Duty and if you aren't a fan of the run and gun mechanic then you are probably not going to be a big fan. However if you've ever enjoyed any Call of Duty game since World at War you are going to love this. Easily the best multiplayer I've experienced in years along with a strikingly unique single player campaign plus a bucket load of extras and a massive community to enjoy it with. You can't go wrong picking it up this year.
Game Informer -
Despite a campaign that struggles with occasional mundane shootouts that bring the out-of-this-world story down to earth, the overall Call of Duty: Black Ops III package is incredibly strong, with something for everyone. Whether you're into traditional multiplayer mayhem or zombie survival, you've got lots of choices that are fun solo and even better with friends.
PlayStation LifeStyle -
An insanely full featured game. If code was a physical thing, this game disc would be bursting at the seams with how much Treyarch has packed onto one Blu-ray. There's a little something for everyone here. Players looking for a dark, rich narrative have the campaign. Competitive players have a whole new way to play in multiplayer. Fans of roguelikes and horde modes have Shadows of Evil.
Black Ops III might not be the absolute best Call of Duty experience ever, but it's certainly the biggest, and probably the most fun. It's the new gold standard for Treyarch too, the game that best shows off their strengths (and works around their weaknesses) as a studio. It's a weird, confident, fresh take on the Call of Duty formula, one that truly excels in online multiplayer but also manages to provide a campaign that's well worth playing through.
Vandal Online -
Black Ops III is a game with a huge amount of content, and all of it is solid and well-developed. Again, we didn't enjoy the campaign as we used to do back in the day, but the zombie and the multiplayer modes can be the best ones we've played in a few years. If you've ever loved playing CoD online, this game can be the reason to come back or to keep on playing it.
I'm just going to get right into it -- this is the weakest campaign yet from Treyarch.
No, it's not the best Call of Duty ever made, but the sheer volume of content on display largely makes up for its weaknesses in specific areas. A worthwhile story would have added enormous value to the overall package, but its absence doesn't undermine what is another solid release.
The Escapist -
Black Ops III has upped its game, giving exciting updates to the fan-favorite Zombies and the classic multiplayer, but the single player doesn't measure up to the same standard.
This massive, wonderfully diverse Call of Duty theme park is best enjoyed with a friend (or three). Going alone dampens the fun, but either way it's still worth the price of admission.
From the big marquee features to the small touches and hidden modes, Black Ops 3 features an awful lot of content, and every aspect of it is designed with cooperative play in mind. It can feel a bit disjointed in places, but it's a broad and expansive game with plenty to enjoy, especially so when playing with friends.
In its undead modes, and the first 10 hours of multiplayer, it excels. But in its campaign, it merely crawls forward. Black Ops III doesn't offer anything remarkable to the series, but does just enough to maintain the Call of Duty status quo. The franchise, however slowly, continues its inexorable march.
Giant Bomb -
Perhaps some pockets of the still-large Call of Duty fanbase will enjoy different parts of it more than I did, but as I add it all up, Black Ops III is a pretty even mix of positive and negatives. It's OK.
