Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Same ol thing with a more junk.
Campaign was normal old COD. You have the same game play except a couple of new abilities. The enemies are predictable and come from every where. There's a lot of seen it done it in this game. Your character must get knocked out and picked up every 5 minutes it seems. There's a lot of those scenes where you are just walking and watching things happen. I like to call it filler. If you like a icon flashing on your screen to push a certain button then this game is for you. The graphics looked the best I have seen on the PS4 though. I was just expecting to be blown away. The Hype machine got to me once again on a COD game.. Multiplayer is Fast paced but once again they can't figure out the match making. I played 5 games and will be trading the game in or selling it.. The double jumps and cloaking just made the game even more annoying on line. I must be getting old cause I don't want to be a whipping boy till I can get classes set up again. Done that enough in the last few COD titles..
Good but lacking content
With our expectations set high year after year with Cod it's very easy to pick out the little things that we as a gaming community feel they could have done to prove the game. This year Cod made a lot of risky moves with their gameplay. For me personally I like the feel of the fast paced exo suits added to the constant run and gun gameplay. Unfortunately I must admit it is very similar to the style of multiplayer Crysis has put out for years just not with all the Nano suits abilities. Other than that the story was very solid with consistent action and drama. The only complaint I have with the story is that it is very short and can be beaten within a few hours. This seems to be getting way to consistent with Cod lately as well as other games where the story lines have been pushed aside. Lastly we were promised an "Epic new co op mode" months ago but were given the same Survival mode as Modern warfare with the exception of the Exo suit. There is going to be a zombie mode completely different from Treyarch zombies but we may not see that till late Dec.to Jan.
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.
I was a little scared of getting the new one after ghost but I'm extremely happy with this game developers have done an amazing job.
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.
This is honestly the worst Call of Duty I've ever played. This could not have came out at a worse time with both new Assassin's Creed games, Lords of the Fallen, Master Chief Collection, and Grand Theft Auto coming out this month. This is actually the first game I didn't like on the new consoles. It's like Call of Duty Ghosts meets Destiny in the ultimate of screw-ups. I highly doubt this game was even tested before coming out because the game glitches offline and most sights are off. Even the 1.01 update did nothing to help this. I would imagine a game that takes up 49gb of my PS4's 500gb hard drive would have been way better. All in all, it's a disappointment to the Call of Duty series.
Alright, so this game isn't really like any other call of duty, I use to be a MLG gamer, I was sponsored by monster, and such for ghost, now in my opinion ghost is better, ghost was a great game in my opinion, I don't know why people came down on it so much, for the old GEN the game stunk, but for the new GEN they were great, but in AW, its so different, its like its own game nothing like call of duty, I wish they made this game and call of duty made a real call of duty game. when I play this most of the time I end up yelling at the TV because this game is crazy I honestly shot at a guy with my clip at 48 bullets, and it went down to 25 and I got all hit markers, then the guy turns around and shoots me in the foot with three bullets and kills me, now that's why I get really ticked off at this game, but after a little while I started just to relax a little and such and now im getting around 40 kills and around 10-20 kills, so yeah, in my opinion the ps4 version is better then the xbox but I have both and the people on ps4 are so much better, they use so much more team work and its like a big family, xbox all they do is fool around besides if u find a real person.
A Near-perfect 2010s Call of Duty Experience
At this point in time, Call of Duty has seen its fair share of games that take place in the future. Also, by now, most of us have grown weary of it. But then, Advanced Warfare happened. Here, we have future warfare that we can believe will exist someday. It isn't too sci-fi. It's just enough. The incorporation of the Exo adds new depth to Call of Duty's traditional multiplayer AND single player experience with abilities like a double jump and quick dodge among other Exo abilities. Scorestreaks make their return from Black Ops II as well as the "Pick" system. Single-player story is well done. Graphically, it looks amazing. Never has a Call of Duty looked this nice. No expense was spared in order to guarantee that Sledgehammer's debut as a lead developer of Call of Duty is one that will be remembered, High recommendations!
Best Game That I've Played By Far
This is the best Call of Duty I have played yet. I played Black Ops 1, Ghosts, and now AW. However, I do think they should add more guns and better SMGs. I love the graphics and the multiplayer gameplay. That exo-skeleton suit and super punch is very useful and great. As well as the boost jump. This game is A-W-E-S-O-M-E and I suggest you buy it if possible.
Almost a fully polished CoD release
First, from a viewing perspective, this game is beautiful. It looks great in cutscene and in game. The sound is extremely well done, the sounds of the guns, the boost jump, and the footsteps are great. The mechanics of this game are also extremely smooth.......when not online. This games greatest flaw comes from its most important aspect. The multiplayer suffers hugely in this game. The bullet tracking and the amount of general lag makes multiplayer extremely frustrating and takes away from every other aspect of the game. The reason gameplay and lasting appeal get such low scores from me is because of the extremely poor multiplayer experience. I would suggest trying a friends copy first if possible because the multiplayer lacks even when on a connection that maxes what the PS4 can pull from a modem.
