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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 campaign for AW is quite exciting, with some nice twists and the overall gameplay of it. But the campaign just didn't feel the same as when I played either of the Black Ops campaigns or Modern Warfare campaigns because those were more heartfelt and there was a lot of character development. But don't get me wrong, AW's campaign is still worth playing through. As for the Multiplayer, the new exo provides a nice new way of playing the game, and it's pretty smooth. The maps are quite nice, most being mid to small maps. The weapons are decent, there isn't a whole lot to choose from, but there's just enough. My one big problem with the Multiplayer is that there always seems to be constant small lag. Even when I spawn in for the first part of the game there is a slight lag, and not everyone even spawns in until a bit of the match has begun. I know it isn't just me because I hear a lot of others complaining about it too. But all in all Advanced Warfare is a great game that i recommend everyone to pick up, even if you're reluctant too after playing that treacherous Ghost game. Hope to see you online.
A Step Up From Ghosts
COD Ghosts was horrible, and was one of the worst games that I have ever played. After playing that game, I promised myself that I would never buy another COD game again. I broke this promise and decided I would pick it up because it was on sale. I do not regret it. While it is still not the best COD game, and it does have MANY problems, I found it enjoyable. The multiplayer offered a few new updates from the previous COD, and the storyline wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, even though it was still not that intriguing. But if you are a fan of COD, I believe that you will enjoy this game.
Would give a 10 if not for freezing!
I love love love this game! it's my first call of duty game I have ever owned and I am satisfied. At first I freaked out because of the freezing, I thought my ps3 had some problems but it's actually the game server (my brother told me this) I die sometimes because I froze and another player sees me and kills me! luckily the campaign mode doesn't freeze on me, haha. Anyways, after you solve the freezing I will give it a 10, but I am very satisfied. (I'm a newbie gamer so I suck for now) My nickname is the same as my online profile on this game
