Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition
No, thank you.
Call of Duty has lost the true value of an FPS franchise. The repetitive storylines and the SAME future-based rubbish that they keep doing year after year is just pathetic. The last memorable Call of Duty game I played was Black Ops (1 & 2 ). MW3 was garbage, and Ghosts is OK not even that good. Personally, I think it comes down to the developers creating these games. So far my favorite is Treyarch. Sledge Hammer and Infinity Ward just don't do it for me as far as online functionality, weapon selection, loadout and customization options. I will pass on this year's offering, since Activision seems to be doing the same thing every year. Hopefully they will learn from this mistake and make improvements to next year's cycle which will bring Treyarch back into action. Until then, I will remain a loyal fan of Titanfall on Xbox One and Watchdogs on PS4. To everyone out there: do not let Activision steal your money, rent the game first and if you like it then buy it. Don't waste your money, seriously.
Will not buy this game
Im sure im not the only one who feels this way but Ill give my 2 cents on the call of duty series. Im beginning to get a little irritated with this series. Every year they come out with a new version of the SAME game! They add in a few useless features and change the storyline of the game, and make new MP maps. Then they go and sell it for $60. People this series has just become a money milker. Its the same gameplay over and over and yet millions of people go and spend 60 bucks year after year on the same game.....Im just sick of call of duty in general. Im sure people will think im nuts for posting this but oh well. I don't see the point in wasting money over and over on a game that they just churn out because they know people will buy it because its "call of duty" and just keep milking the money cow. But to each their own. I hope this call of duty will be different but I doubt it.
Not This Time
Regardless of who the developer has been, they have not learned from their mistakes. Ghosts was the worst Call of Duty I've ever played and I can almost bet that this will be the same as the last several CoD's. The only thing I've enjoyed about CoD is the campaign. Multiplayer has been directed towards (in my opinion) people under the age of 15. That's all you seem to play with anymore. There's no respect online anymore. Online itself has gotten too complex and there's way too much useless junk that can be removed from online. If it were me, I'd go back to the basics and go from there; cause it was simple basic things that made CoD such a great franchise. WaW and Moder Warfare were simple, fun, and competitive. Now all players care about is trolling, camping, and making the game unenjoyable for others. Until things change and go back to the way they used to be (which is doubtful) I'm hanging up the guns and retiring from CoD and I suggest that a lot of others do the same.
The call of duty franchise has gone through a lot of hate over the years. according to people black ops 2 had annoying parts and ghosts was just boring. to me Black ops 2 is my favorite cod in the series and ghosts wasn't bad. Now Sledgehammer games is in the fray and they are making the next call of duty in advanced warfare. To me this game looks sick. This looks like it takes place WAY in the future. awesome hi tech equipment including cloaking, scanner grenades and even exoskeleton suits are in the game. the exoskeleton suits can make you jump farther, you can grab heavy objects and even activate sticky gloves and climb walls. Kevin Spacey plays an incredible role of the antagonist of the campaign. So overall this game is shaping up to be a great game. But they should be careful, all this hi tech gadgetry can either revolutionize first person shooters or be one of the biggest busts in games.
Lets be honest all first person shooters that have been out the pass few years feel exactly the same like every other one that is out, although this is the series that started the FPS craze and usually is the best a lot of people hated the last COD Ghost I really enjoyed the story mode but felt very disappointed when playing online noting really new and all the good stuff was in the season pass without it made the game feel like it was a half of a game making you forced to buy the season pass to get the full experience and not "extra", there is no doubt that they will have another $50.00 season pass but I hope it feels like DLC not something that they held back to make a few extra bucks on. Also I really would like to see some kind of zombie mode or aline mode like in the previous COD games as that is usually the best part of the games but a different studio is developing this so lets see what they will bring!
Miss the old days
I wish CoD would revisit what made the games great and that is the WWI and WWII genre. I know they made World at War, but I never played it so maybe they screwed it up. I understand they have to gear their games towards the interests of 12 year olds and that's futuristic, but I do think with graphics and the PS4/XBOX One's capabilities they could create a better game by going back to it's roots. I know the pull with classes and unlocking guns and stuff, but I miss when you just had to be good to dominate online and when the stories were alot more entertaining. I am probally in the minority but I still play the original CoD on my computer and wouldn't mind seeing another similar game.
One (And I mean only ONE) LAST Chance......
After somewhat being let down by Call of Duty: Ghosts and Black Ops II proved that our beloved developers Infinity Ward and Treyach have lost there "grove" when it comes to COD. However, the trailer looks promising and the project is being made by new developers (Sledgehammer) who are new to making Call of Duty games and the idea looks fresh. So in conclusion I will pre-order Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and give COD one last chance and I mean only ONE LAST CHANCE.
Knife, Hit boxes, COD inconsistencies
The last 2 Call of Duties, have just been a major letdown. The knife system in these games is just absurd. I recently got stabbed through a brick wall in Ghosts!! Come on you guys, COME ON!!!! Why are there not knife counter attacks or other perks that allow defense against the knife? Secondly since when do bullets follow people around corners? I understand that there is lag when playing on line games, but I have been killed, and have killed others who have run clear around a solid corner, free from harm long before any shots were even fired. It's not always like this, but it happens. COD has had so many inconsistencies that its impossible to develop a rhythm while playing this game. And this is coming from someone with a 1.66 K/D in TDM and rank around 25,500 ("SocialAnomly88" look me up if u dont believe it). Lastly, the graphics in ghosts (even for PS4) were simply sub-par. I was highly disappointed that the graphics looked so inferior for such a new game and system. Just couldn't believe it. Advanced Warefare will likely be the last Call of Duty I buy unless they some how manage to get it back to Black Ops quality OR BETTER.
At this point it's just pointless....
Can this franchise really dig themselves out of the hole they dug? Over and over they have charged us 65 to 186 dollars for games that come nowhere near to what it promised. Charging us for collectors editions then coming out with more packs which should come free, but instead its 1.99. When will it ever end? I'm taking my stand and telling you I've had enough.
one last try!
the game looks good I just hope it has online multiplayer campaign! and I hope that when you look down the sight you use the left button and the left joystick to move the pointer and the right trigger to shoot with instead of trying to do everything with your right hand at the sametime and the option not to use the buttons on the joysticks I hate doing meele attack and squating when your trying to move around! and you don't have to use to many buttons to play the game it seems like lately on the CoD game's you didn't know if you were suppose play bopit or play the game with all that said I hope these new guys bring back that sense of Call of Duty!.
