    Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 review

    Only managed to get a match in as I went for the PS4 digital deluxe version. There's been a load of hassle with the launch of it but it's slowly made itself available. The map was the same one from the beta with the truck in the middle courtyard of the map, small layout and plenty reliance on wall running.

    It was pretty much exactly as the beta presented it to be, the game looks nice enough. Doesn't wow just as no CoD entry ever does but there's definitely enough minor level detail to establish the transition away from the visuals on the last consoles. Controls seem solid too.

    Really interested to check out the wealth of available content Treyarch have put in, it has a sense of polish AW didn't quite meet. The only other thing I had time to sneak in was a go of the Alpha Freerun level. A slow and steady time of 2:30m was enough to suggest there's plenty scope for them to add more via DLC and also for players to shave times down but it's not quite Mirror's Edge level freerunning. Nice to have included though.

    After waiting ages for the single player to install I played the first three missions last night and was bored out of my skull.

    The main problem I'm having is that it just doesn't feel exciting. It's just bland and by the numbers. The battling hoards of robots is dull too as it lacks the visceral element when you're fighting human for.

    It looks okay, I personally think AW looked a little better, and the controls are typical CoD.

    The weapons don't seem to have any heft. They feel weak and lacklustre when you fire them. The sound effects seem dialled back and muted. Explosions seem weedy as well.

    I wasn't expecting GOTY but thought it would be better than this.

    Did another level (set during a storm) and it just felt mechanically underwhelming. Having to hold square to anchor yourself when there's a strong gust of wind or a Big wave was rubbish. In fact, I didn't anchor during a big wave and nothing happened. Rubbish. The whole game has this lightweight feel.

    Jumped into Zombies and although the 1940s setting is cool it doesn't look very solid and again there's little impact when you shoot anything. Some headshots give you that satisfying "pop" but others do nothing.

    I played a couple of online games and they were terrible. I've got 80Mb fibre and my NAT is open but it was jumping about all over the shop.

    I'm off into town in a bit and CEX are giving ?40 trade / ?36 cash so either way I've profited from this pile of drivel.

    I've only been playing MP so far but to be honest i've had no issues with it at all as yet, easily better than at least the last two entries and the wall running and boost jumping is very restrained compared to AW. Time will tell if it holds up but so far it's pretty decent.

    Played 50 games online and a the lag is there, but less than it used to be, just annoying when it is. I played a game a FFA and one guy was at KD 7.1 and every time i shot him i emptied a clip, two bullets from him and I was dead. Nonetheless there is fun to be had. What is evident in the last few iterations of COD is that with starter weapons you will get hammered. Some of the upgrades make a huge difference to your performance. Back in days of MW1 this was not the case.

    Anyway, I will plat the SP and Zombies during the week.

    Oh, and like all COD's, headphones are a must or you are at a disadvantage.

    Looks like the PC version has been borked... down to 12fps on a GTX980ti

    No way does this deserve a metacritic average of 85 - some of the sections on Xbox One drop to what looks like 15 fps or less - can't believe I'm playing the same game as some of these 10/10 reviews suggest.

    Anyone thinking they will get value for money from a COD game from single player mode alone, is always going to be disapointed....

    I enjoyed AW, BLOPS 1 & 2 SP modes personally. This one just feels half baked.
