It’s Call of Duty day. How has Black Ops 3 measured up?Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has a lot to prove. It’s the first Treyarch entry to be given the benefit of a longer development period, thanks to Sledgehammer’s debut last year. It comes off the back of two slightly less-well received entires, Ghosts and Advanced Warfare. And it’s the sequel to Black Ops 2, one of the most successful and popular Call of Duty games of recent times – and still one of the most-played today.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a squad based Tom Clancy game that plays by the numbers. It stays true to the series’ Rainbow Six-inspired roots, emulating the cold and calculated nature of organized infiltration and coordinated stealth kills. Whether you’re syncing shots with friends or an AI companion, there’s gratification in taking down targets efficiently. Unfortunately, the adherence to this specific kind of gameplay gets lost and diluted in Wildlands’ vast expanse of Bolivia.

There’s always been something voyeuristic about sniping in video games. With a powerful rifle in hand, you’re perched in some bombed-out tower overlooking a Nazi-occupied town, your crosshairs fixated squarely on the head of an enemy soldier as he strides along his designated patrol route.
