Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Does "Day Zero" Come Automaticly with my Preorder?
I'm worried that the day zero wont come automaticly or do I ask for it but I've already payed for it
Freezes killing online gaming
Payed over $100. for this game and while playing online everyone in the playstation and xbox community has been experiencing freezes and lagging whose only fix is restarting system to experience more freezing minutes later. Sony and game makers need to fix issue FAST. I'm ready to toss game away, lol.
Perhaps after a few months of tweaks, bug fixes, and nerfing/unnerfing of various weapons this game will approach some semblance of order, however at the moment it is unplayable. With a pipeline that typically has two years to research and develop a game that typically sells millions of units, I can only assume that activision has decided that they just don't care about their customers. While the storyline game was interesting, It stars Kevin Freaking Spacey, the multiplayer portion is horrible. There are a few maps that are so bland, that I won't even bother describing them. The weapons systems are set up on some sort of metric that I have yet to figure out, but apparently it is under the rule of unless you are using an assault rifle, or NO ONE CAN SEE YOU, you are not going to win a gun battle. Activision continues to offer industry leading dedicated servers, oh wait, they don't offer that, even after wringing literally BILLIONS of dollars out of gamers over the last 10 years. In the last three weeks, there have been at least 5 updates for the PS3 version of the game, and it plays no better now than when I bought it. I will be contacting Activision asking for my money back.
Feeling good about it
Ghosts had a lot of problems, but it did well and played well for me at launch. Now, It has become a game with a very low skill gap. I think the main reason why there is such a low skill gap in call of duty: Ghosts, is [what I think] that Activision and Infinity Ward are trying to ring in new consumer to buy their games, and be involved in The Call Of Duty franchise. We have seen, in the beginning of ghosts, IED's that were one-hit kills, and the dreadful guard dog. A five kill streak, that lasts throughout all of 1 game.Previous call of duty's were built around knowing the maps and choke points, like in the middle of hardhat on mw3. More experienced players could control the middle, while if a new player was in the middle, they would easily be caught with their pants down.
I hope they don't make Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare into a noob game.
Okay. This game was fun at first. Then updates came in, hacks came in, lag came in, etc.. The story in campaign was sooooo bad. It hurt to play it. It doesn't make too much sense, and you can tell it was rushed because of various bugs and glitches. The multiplayer didn't last long. The mechanics are so bad, and the killcam freezes the game. I got to prestige 2 lvl 55 and I stopped ther forever. This game built up hype, and then threw down into the dirt. The hit marker system is also really bad. It's worse than black ops 2 hit marker system, and black ops 2's hit marker system was horrible. Don't buy. Don't look. Just stay away if you want to keep your controller in tact. Play something else.
The preview for this game looks awesome, but then again, so did the one for Ghosts. I preordered the game and I still play it almost every day. I was extremely disappointed with it though and there are still times where I get so frustrated with it that I want to throw it out the window. The hacking is ridiculous and then there's the problem with the profile copying. My husband and I play all the time. My daughter and my son barely play. Twice now, there were issues with profile copying. My husbands was replaced with my sons and mine with my daughters. We play a whole lot more and lost almost everything. All we had was the very little that the kids had earned. This was irreversible. Clan Wars are not set up fairly. Lobbies online are the best players against the worst. If you're in the middle, you have a chance at being on the team with the best players, but it's not set up evenly. You'll go in to lobbies where there are 12 players, 6 multi prestige and 6 no prestige at all. They will be divided in to those groups with all the prestiged players on the same team against those who have not prestiged at all. How does this play out? SLAUGHTER! I really hope that this new COD fixes all of those issues and all of the other one's reported on COD Community Page. It's just a ridiculously unfair set up. I don't think I will pre order this one because of Ghosts. I think I will wait and watch the community page to see how many issues there are with this new game before I even think about buying it.
One of the best campaigns.
I bought this game on sale, and loved it. The story was great, I just wish they took a page from Black Ops 2 and added different endings, but, I guess they didn't to be in the shadow and made their own experience. I loved the exo-suit upgrade system, and grenades. It took me a bit to get used to the grenades but when you learn how to use them, it will change the way you play Call of Duty. I got my life saved countless time by a smart grenade (which goes directly to the enemy). The multi-player, though it can be annoying, can be fun, but, I'm not a big multi-player guy. Overall this game is good and sets up for a possibly great sequel. I hope you have as much fun as I did.
Single player is awesome, multiplayer is bad
The single player campaign may possibly be my favorite one yet from COD. Sadly the online game play may actually be the worst I ever played. I don't really care for the concept but the single player campaign made it work where as the multiplayer aspect is horrible.
Strictly Multiplayer Review
This is a strictly online multiplayer review.
Most people only buy this game for multiplayer so here's my review. I have been playing Cod multiplayer since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare up to this game but this one is such a led down. I got this game on day zero and let me tell you there is so many things wrong with online multiplayer. It feels like another rushed and recycled product with jet packs (Exo Skeleton) thrown in. Grenades explosions and guns sound like they did back in Black Ops. Within the first week of playing no matter what game mode I was in I encountered unbearable lag and glitches. Then all of a sudden my game would freeze over and over again. I played on my day off and I think it was around 7 to 8 times that i had to manually restart my console because of the freezing. This will probably be patched but why release a so called "Advanced" game when there's nothing "Advanced" about it? It feels like Call of Duty is losing it's origin and going down the wrong path. MW2 was the best in my opinion and should have continued down that path not all this crazy futuristic nonsense.
The Do's And Dont's For Future CoD
Advanced warfare is a excellent example for don't in gaming although the game has great graphics awesome gameplay and good reviews it has many issues such as lagging freezing and in some cases it can corrupt data it can lead to people wanting to return the game because they think its broken but really its just the problems with the servers and the servers choice of lobby host I wish that they had just made dedicated servers so that way people such as myself would not be mad at the lag and freeze problems overall this was a great game and I hope the next CoD is a little bit better
