Delivering a stunning performance, Academy Award winning actor Kevin Spacey stars as Jonathan Irons -- one of the most powerful men in the world -- shaping this chilling vision of the future of war. The game takes place in a plausible future in which technological progress and today's military practices have converged with powerful consequences. In this carefully researched and crafted vision of the future, Private Military Corporations (PMCs) have become the dominant armed forces for countless nations outsourcing their military needs, redrawing borders and rewriting the rules of war. And Jonathan Irons, the founder and president of the world's largest PMC, Atlas Corporation, is at the center of it all.

    Suit up for combat in exoskeletons that evolve every aspect of a soldier's battle readiness, enabling combatants to deploy with an advanced lethality and eliminating the need for specialization. Players experience enhanced player movement and verticality through boost jumps and grappling, covert cloaking abilities, and biomechanics that provide unparalleled 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, fundamentally changing the way gamers play Call of Duty across all modes

    By designing the levels in the campaign, co-op, and multiplayer to facilitate those new mechanics, Advanced Warfare is granted a weight and importance that changes how the fast-paced shooting action feels in all three modes.

    This game is a lot of fun. There’s some Crysis in it, some Titanfall, some elements borrowed from Unreal Tournament and Battlefield. Underneath it’s still Call of Duty though, finally modernized in terms of visuals. [13/2014, p.50]
  3. Even though Advanced Warfare has a cliche scenario like Ghosts, multiplayer is still fun.

    Despite the dismal showing of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare shows that it’s not quite time to write off this series yet, and I just may be back next year to see if the improvements continue or if this game turned out to be just a fluke.

    It's the best Call of Duty campaign in years, and the multiplayer continues to scratch a certain itch. [Jan 2015, p.64]

    The story is nothing to write home about, but the multiplayer is great fun as long as the servers are working.

    For the second year in the row, Activision, like a crafty snake oil peddler, pushes ‘a next-gen Call of Duty’ by replacing developers, locations and characters. Goodbye, German cyber-shepherd, orbital kinetic missiles and a crazy Venezuelan dictator. Hello, exoskeletons, holograms and a corporate megalomaniac played by Kevin Spacey. But the glitzy CG cinematics and sweet PR songs hide the stale 10-year old gameplay formula.

I know it's early to make such a sweeping statement but the game just oozes brilliance on a number of levels. It is streets ahead of Ghosts in every aspect and really puts Infinity Ward to absolute shame. Even Treyarch need to raise their game for next year. Sledgehammer have essentially taken the best aspects of past games and fused them into their very own interpretation along with delivering their own brand of unique ideas.

    The gameplay is fast, the guns are incredible fun, the matches flow superbly and every second is really enjoyable. The maps are simply stunning to look at and their designs & layouts make way for some frantic action.

    The optimisation for PC which has been heavily questioned after Ghosts and Sledgehammer's silence in the media; is actually riddled with depth and all the key elements to compliment your rig. I really did not expect much but they really have hit the nail on the head from a technical standpoint.

    I've not enjoyed COD since the Black Ops days but this is a game that really rejuvenates my desire for the franchise. After the pitiful Ghosts last year; this game simply had to deliver and it truly has. SHG took a risk for their first outing and it really paid off in what could be a genre-defining title.

I stopped playing COD after MW 2, due to it just not being fun anymore. The multiplayer takes some getting used to in this, but overall it's pretty cool. Lots of customization, nice looking graphics (it's not Crysis 3, but it's way better than previous games). I'm glad to see Kevin Spacey and Troy Baker in this, I haven't gotten too far in SP yet, but I'm liking what I see so far. Expand

Depois de ter bases instaladas em quase todos os países, a Atlas quer atacar os EUA, pois a mais de um século que eles vem falhando inúmeras vezes ao tentar instalar democracias em todos os países.
    Antes de começar a falar sobre os modos separadamente, irei falar dos gráficos e dos jogabilidade, pra quem jogou na nova geração e no PC, deve ter se surpreendido com os gráficos de Advanced Warfare, simplesmente foi o maior avanço gráfico da franquia, já pra quem jogou na geração passada não precisa ficar triste, os gráficos da antiga geração são razoavelmente bons.
    Já a jogabilidade é extremamente fácil, se acostumar com os movimentos do exoesqueleto não demora muito, já o resto continua a mesma coisa que os outros jogos da franquia.

    CAMPANHA:
    A história de Advanced Warfare é boa porém previsível, pois ela não prende o jogador. O que faz você continuar a jogar a campanha é a própria gameplay, pois a maioria das missões que há na campanha são realmente muito divertidas.
    As ligações entre os personagens é fraca, você não consegue perceber a amizade entre Gideon e Mitchell e a ligação com Irons e seu filho.
    A dublagem de Advanced Warfare comete vários erros, principalmente em sincronia labial, você vai encontrar varias vezes personagens mexendo a boca sem falar nada. Agora em questão de qualidade da dublagem, são poucos os personagens que combinam com a voz do dublador, e o pior de tudo é que a Activision continua com o descaso em não lançar o jogo em PT-BR para PC, pelo menos uma legenda eles teriam que se dar o trabalho a colocar.

    MULTIPLAYER:
    Se você achava que o exoesqueleto iria trazer muita inovação ao multiplayer, você está errado, logo depois de algumas partidas os movimentos do exo já se tornam "normais" e você quase não nota diferença. O jogo tem pouca variedade de armas e scorestreaks, porém as classes estão bem mais personalizáveis, não irei entrar em muitos detalhes para não alongar a análise.
    Sobre os mapas, na minha opinião, a maioria não presta, são poucos os mapas que me agradaram, e todos, sem exceção, contém paredes invisíveis, e isso irrita muito, principalmente na hora que você precisa fugir de algum oponente.
    Apesar de tudo isso, o multiplayer é bastante divertido, na minha opinião um dos mais divertidos, e isso torna as paredes invisíveis apenas um pequeno incomodo.

    EXO SURVIVAL:
    O exo survival é o que mais deixa a desejar, parece que a sledgehammer games fez esse modo só pelo motivo que o coop vem se tornando obrigatório em todos os COD's, difetente do extinction (COD: Ghosts) e do Zombies(COD: World At War e sequência Black Ops), o Exo survival tem os mesmos mapas que o multiplayer, e isso reforça o que eu disse antes. Porém o modo zombies que irá vir por DLC promete ser muito bom.

    Overall a bad game. Not much to say here. The story is extremely silly and the multiplayer is average.

    Boght the key for this at 24€. My last COD was MW3 on xbox and i did not like it a lot.
    Anyway... this is a bad copy of titanfall with the COD multuplayer. The single player is BORING, feels the same thing from others CODs. The multiplayer is LAGGY (no dedicated server) always with the NAT problem (damn i play every online game OK and with this i need to do al the mess with my router?) and not very funny. Many DLC as always with maps and guns... and the price is too high. Anyway i not reccomend them because the game is really bad. In multiplayer everyone only jump to avoid being hit. WTF!?

Same game, different year and differet paintjob but nothing new. Yes, not even this time around anything new, it's just the same old same old. This game is still even running on the infamous id tech III/quake 3 engine which is from 1999! Is it possible to get AAA games that are 16 years old? Well, apparently it is :( These ppl just will continue to milk on clueless ppl and obviously the clueless ppl will continue on throwing cash at these greedy publishers.

    Here is something you can do though. Instead of going out and buying the new call of duty, how about you do differently this year? You don't go out and buy the same **** so that games will start to get better, because they don't try to mimic this cashcow anymore and therefore don't get ruined and we get rid from this stagnation that is bugging games thesedays. Yes, call of duty is the biggest responsible for us having nowadays stagnation in our gaming community. We don't get varied games because they all try to mimic call of duty. Now i know we don't like that, so therefore you could just be and not go out and get the new call of duty this year. I promise you, it will pay off, because then we will get some totally new game, nothing to do with call of duty, that is gonna blow us out from the water. Totally innovative, totally crazy fun.

    Don't buy this.
