While Absolution is by no means a disaster it just feels lacking in comparison to the rest of the content we've been given for Infinite Warfare so far. Although Absolution does add new content, and the Attack of the Radioactive Thing! is both complicated and fun, the multiplayer maps just don't fit very well within the constructs of Infinite Warfare.
Unfortunately even though there are some great moments within this third episode, it comes across a bit more lackluster than the previous installments.
This first episode sets the stage in an entertaining and action-packed way, leaving just enough room amongst it all for the sarcastic group of characters many of us have come to know and love.
