For even more on the first-person shooter, check out our review. Here’s a snippet:

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is 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. Switching between all of these modes is extremely easy too, and it never felt like I was stuck playing one thing or another. Player freedom, customization, and choice are central to every element. Call of Duty: Black Ops III isn’t just a great Black Ops game. It isn’t just a great Call of Duty game. It’s a damn good game overall.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III update 1.27 is available now.
