Copied from my Steam review

 

Look, if you hate CoD, this game will be no different.
MOVING PAST THAT.

PROS:
- You could tell that all throughout the Beta, the developers were listening and responding to issues that people were having. Audio glitch during final killcams? BOOM. Next day fix.
- As crazy as it may seem, the Specialists are actually very well balanced. Each one with an offensive and support perk to choose from.
- I've never had so few issues playing online on a CoD game on PC before. Holy ♥♥♥♥, did a developer lern the importance of good netcode??
- The movement system is a great addition to the series. I know that AW had a similar "boost" system, but the movement in BO3 feels a lot more natural as well as being more responsive. It is for sure a bit slower, but with the way everything is designed, it works VERY well.
- The level design goes hand in hand with the movement system. Very well optomized for several routes to each destination.
- Uplink is back
- Scorestreaks don't suck anymore
- Scorestreaks and not killstreaks
- Specialist react and talk to each other before and during a match.
- Blood and Gibs. FINALLY. Someone FINALLY caught on that this series is rated "M" and could use more blood, ect.
- The attention to little things like the UAV telling you when he is halfway out of fuel.
- NO. MORE. ONE. HIT. MELEE. Thank Christ. To get a melee kill you either have to hit twice, have a knife out, or have a specialist whom has said perk.

CONS:
- The audio. The weapon, grenade, non-lethal sounds are ALL. F*CKING. TERRIBLE. Weapons sound weak, concussion grenades sound like my grandmother spitting on a loose sheet of paper, and grenades sound like my cat sneezing from 3 rooms away.
- TTK is still pretty high for the slower movement
- Some scorestreaks feel like they should cost more than they do
- Some perks feel absolutely useless
- While weapons look different...ish, not many feel and shoot differently from each other
- (Not the developer's fault) If you are an objective-based gametype's lobby, there is a big chance 50% of the players in that lobby don't give 2 squirts of ♥♥♥♥ about the objective.


NOTE:
I had AMAZING performance on my machine, but I have pretty damn high specs (including a GTX 980ti SC+). I rarely dipped below 120 FPS.

At this point, Call of Duty is a franchise that is impossible to review because everyone has made thier mind up already. You'll buy it or you won't, and I don't think anyone can change one's mind either way, so what's the point?

I am neutral. I have no love nor animosity to the franchise, but even I couldn't be convinced to buy BO3. Not because I think the game is bad, but because it's the next COD, no more, no less and that's all it's worth.

I wasn't meaning you. I mean the people who think there's nothing better than CoD and will scream at you for it, and those that hate it so intensely with no real reasoning.

Totally get you, and to tell you the truth, I'm actually a little jealous of CoD fans because I'm to cynical to enjoy the game's they can get months of joy from that I can't. They get huge fun out of CoD and they deserve every second of it. Good on them. It may be Activision's biggest cash cow but that doesn't mean it's a bad franchise.

Totalbiscuit basically summed up the way I feel about it.
