Kevin Spacey is Jonathan Irons -- one of the most notorious men in the world -- shaping this chilling vision of the future of war. The game unfolds in a plausible future in which technological, telesis and today's military practices have converged with real world consequences. In this image of the future, Private Military Corporations have become the dominant armed forces for many countries who must outsource their military needs, redrawing borders and rewriting international law. Irons, the founder and president of the world's largest PMC, Atlas Corporation, is at the vortex of these tectonic plates.

    Suit up for combat in exoskeletons that advance every facet of a soldier's battle readiness, enabling combatants to deploy with an advanced lethality and eliminating the need for specialization. Players tout enhanced player movement and verticality through boost jumps and grappling, covert cloaking abilities, and biomechanics that provide keen strength, awareness, endurance, and speed. With the advent of the exoskeleton and newly advanced armor and weaponry, every soldier commands tactical freedom in any terrain unlike ever before.

    Advanced Warfare is already legendary. Boosting is awesome, mind-blowing and fits the game like a latex glove. I pity Treyarch, who'll have to pull out all stops to surpass this one.

    Boasting the tightest multiplayer of the series and one of the strongest campaigns, Advanced Warfare proves that Call of Duty is here to stay — and it’s welcome.

    Advanced Warfare is Call of Duty’s true starting point for a new generation.

    Multiplayer feels wonderfully fresh, thanks to the added agility of Exo Suit boosting. Sadly, though, co-op is unimaginative, and the story fails to satisfy when compared to previous installments.

    Advanced Warfare is still Call of Duty, but it's more playful, knowing and refreshing than COD's been in years. [Christmas 2014, p.112]

    Satisfying fans is one thing, but this one subverted my skepticism and brought me back.

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare upholds the status quo and aims no higher than that. Its sci-fi trappings are but shallow appeals to progress, and while the multiplayer is still able to provide some entertainment, the CoD formula feels anything but "advanced" these days.

    It's Call of Duty Black Ops II meets Titanfall and it actually works well.

    Great game. Way to bounce back from Call of Duty: Ghosts.

    Call of Duty:Ghosts is considered by many including myself to be one of the worst Call of Duty games of all time. Was this game better?
    The answer is yes, but this certainly wasn't the best. Let's start off with the campaign since it is the only thing I really enjoyed. Actually it is probably one of the best of the series. Kevin Spacey plays his role very well(as always) as well as the other voice actors. There were actually characters that I gave a damn about this time around instead of just random red shirts. The story is compelling and levels are well-designed. A very satisfactory campaign overall.
    Now for the part I didn't enjoy all that much, multiplayer. I didn't care for the changes they made with the multiplayer and does little to actually change the gameplay as a whole. The booster packs and mech suits were just a copy cat of Halo. Call of Duty has had a problem as of late with copying other game mechanics, but this was just too obvious. Activision needs a major transformation of this series' multiplayer.
    Overall, I would call this game good, but only due to its stellar campaign. However, it is almost at the point where a great campaign is no longer enough for satisfaction.

    Same old COD really, Ok single player and solid Multiplayer sadly full of sulky 12 year olds!!

    The worst part of this game is that there
    Same old COD really, Ok single player and solid Multiplayer sadly full of sulky 12 year olds!!

    The worst part of this game is that there are no playing options as usual just straight up shoot then run forward shoot then run forward. I thought the Exo suit made no real difference to playing the game all seemed a little pointless.
    Story was pretty average usual stuff really.
    Since COD MW2 I only get the Cod Games Pre owned and much later on in the year because they are only worth 20 quid at most and they do make a good filler between the real block buster games.
    Overall very average!

Those games include Modern Warfare 3, Ghosts, and now Advanced Warfare. I enjoyed all call of duty games, even world at war, but those three games I mentioned are awful. Campaign is pretty good, and the graphics are amazing. Unfortunately the multi player is pitiful once again. Most weapons are pretty bad, and they recycled the worst perks from every game and put them into this one. Exo survival is pretty bland and im not even considering buying the new zombie mode when it comes out. If youre like me and hate Ghosts, MW3, and Advanced Warfare, i would wait till the next game produced by Infinity Ward and Treyarch comes out. Expand
