Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombies Chronicles
Top Critic Average
Zombies Chronicles takes a good combination of maps and upgrades them with great attention to detail.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles is a great showcase of how a much beloved series has evolved over nearly a decade. It still has some great moments and can still feel fresh and exciting, but those moments cant hold back the slump into grinding repetition most matches end up being.
Treyarch has certainly taken care in bringing these older maps back from the dead.
The visual upgrades for this DLC defy the bar set for most remasters. The majority of these classic Zombies maps offer the same addictive appeal of building strategies and loadouts through cohesive teamwork against the undead hordes, and with new life breathed into them with near-future weapons and features, we can attest that Zombies Chronicles is one killer collection you'll want to sink your teeth into – even if you only buy Black Ops III for it alone.
There is no question the most noticeable eye popping difference with these maps is the enhanced visuals.
Zombies Chronicles aims for the nostalgia of Zombies fans, and for the most part serves it well. Some of the changes made for the sake of evolution may have been better left undone, but the most important elements of these classic maps are still intact.
More than a cynical cash-grab, Zombies Chronicles is a carefully remastered collection of the best of Call of Duty's Zombies. With enhanced visuals, lighting and especially audio, it's a must for Zombies fans.
Treyarch offers nostalgic journey for their biggest fans, making in the same time a perfect occasion for everybody else to experience Zombie mode.

Zombies Chronicles gets the job done and hits most of the high notes the subseries has given us over the years.
I appreciate just how much effort has been put into this collection, and note that it appears that the zombies are not not just lumbering monsters as they were in the past, but move with improved AI that increases their ferocity and cunning. All up this revamp is a stunning success, and for newcomers and seasoned veterans alike, I would strongly suggest you add this pack to your arsenal of fun.
