Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Campaign is amazing, multiplayer is the worst
I've been playing Call of Duty since Call of Duty World at War in 2008. I have had my fair share of terrible games, but AW (Advanced Warfare) is in a world all its own. The campaign is amazing, the best CoD campaign I have ever played. However, the multiplayer is by far the worse I have ever played. The game is based of skill based matchmaking, meaning whatever the players skill is, the player will be matched with player with the same skill. This primarily goes by K/D, or kill/death ratio (kill total divided by death total). Past CoDs went by internet connection, not by skill. Sledgehammer also took ideas from the previous CoDs and put into one game. For Example, score streaks were first brought to Cod in Black Ops 2 by Treyarch. I did not like this but grew used to it. My honest opinion is that this game has the best CoD campaign but the worst multiplayer. I honestly only still play AW for my CoD Clan, and never any other time. If anything, get CoD Black Ops 2, or CoD Ghosts, they are much better games than AW.
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..
Been a while.
First of all, its been a while since I've played video games. So I decided to buy a PS4 mainly because of GTA V and then I decided to give CoD another chance. I've been reading a lot of comments saying that AW is terrible, that CoD franchise is in a hole, etc.. From someone who has played previous games such as MW & MW2, I can say this game for MULTIPLAYER is better. However, the story is crp! Its very cliché and I do agree with the other reviewers that the story is boring. That is true. But on the other hand, the multiplayer is second to none. The pros are that campers/camping becomes eliminated or rarely happens due to the fast paced gameplay and the ability to maneuver and hop up and around the player before they realize what has happened. Also, the weapons are nice, but again, same deal as every other CoD. The con is that you will get shot if you're slow. So, in a nutshell. The game is okay, but the multiplayer is better than the CoD of yesterday. Also, the graphics on the next ten consoles are so realistic its unreal for me.
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.
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.
Call of Duty Ghosts is better
When you play the campaign you have no idea what's going on our who your fighting...enemies take a whole magazine to kill where as on multiplayer other players are easier to kill...exo moves are absolute bogus, you can only boost three times so it really doesn't help when you're pinned in a corner...multiplayer is awful, when you prestige you lose everything so there is no point in doing challenges and you don't get anything special for leveling up like you do in Black Ops 2 or Ghosts where you earn your guns for leveling up...supply drops rarely give you anything good and the more items you get, the more you have to delete so you can never get all the matching armor...some the different versions of the guns you have are terrible and those are the ones you can't delete.
overall this game has good graphics but gameplay is terrible.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
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 as Good as Black ops 1 & 2
And not as good as Battlefield. But there two different style shooting games. Some times its just fun to run and gun and re spawn rite away. Advance Warfare doesn't have the feel as Black ops 1 & 2 did. But its fun. It's not totally bad. Just not grate. Personally I can't wait into they make Titan Fall 2 for PS4. I'm tired of the unfair kill strikes for people. It's old. I'm level 20 now and its still very easy to unlock stuff. No real change. They just make it easy for little kid's now to unlock stuff. And with the community of Little kid's and barking dogs in the background and you gangster rappers in the background. I don't now why I bother with Call Of Duty anymore.
Wasn't expecting this!!
So I was looking for a game to hold me over for a little bit. I had finished Dragon Age Inquisition and needed something until Bloodborne comes out. Truth be told, I only grabbed it because it was at the sale price of $39.99. This game far exceeded my expectations. I figured it was gonna be another boring campaign etc. But the campaign was better than expected. The multiplayer is pretty awesome as well. It's quick, I feel like Bf4 is much slower by comparison. That's probably because the maps are bigger and it hosts more players on Bf4. It's also a better looking game than Bf4. I play both and am not being a fanboy, just my opinion about this. I never thought I was going to appreciate this game as much as I do. I do have one regret about the purchase. I bought it on the Ps4 instead of the Xbox one. I prefer the controller on the Ps4 for shooters and just in general I guess. So the reason I regret getting it on the Ps4, the dlc comes out a month earlier for the Xbox one than the Ps4 or PC. If you own both systems and you appreciate dlc, then grab it for the Xbox one. I have found a game that's gonna hold me over for a while and then some. Oh and if you don't want to hear anyone talking during multiplayer, JUST MUTE THEM. It's easy enough. Knowing what I know now about the game, it's worth the full price without question. Just my opinion. Truly shocked by this game. No regrets with this purchase. If you're on the fence about it, jump off and go have some fun. You owe it to yourself to have some fun.
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.
