Kevin Spacey is Jonathan Irons -- one of the most notorious men in the world -- shaping this chilling visionCall of Duty: Advanced Warfare predicts the powerful battlegrounds of the future, where both technology and tactics have taken steps to usher in a new era of combat for the franchise. 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.

    La acción de batalla en el multiplayer es impresionante y el traje EXO le da una velocidad al juego que marca diferencia respecto a los otros COD.

    Es un excelente juego!!!

    The campaign on Advanced Warfare is great compared to previous CoD games, if only for the fact that you can actually follow the story! Kevin Spacey is a great addition and although there’s no real surprises in the story it’s quite enjoyable to play through. In this franchise (and its competitors’) I don’t expect much from the single player modes, but this was a vast improvement.

    The multiplayer modes are where these games make their money. AW doesn’t make the “huge leaps forward” that you may have read in some reviews, but it’s as good, if not a little better, as its previous versions. The loot system is a nice addition but it’s not quite right yet. There’s a lot of confusion as to why you receive the Supply Crates so there’s no way of encouraging more to come your way. Often when you do receive one it’s less than useless, but I like this idea. I’m keen to see how they develop it in future releases.

    We lose a bit of the selection when it comes to the weapons, we gain a couple more game modes and the clan system. I’m not sure the clan thing really works but I can see this being improved shortly. The new “Uplink” mode is a lot of fun and adds a little more variety to the gameplay.

    Overall, this is still a re-issue of the same old CoD format with the usual improvements here and there. Nothing positively or negatively shocking here, just another good CoD game.

This is the worst game in the series. Lag is much more apparent this time around. The internal balance for the various weapon types is so uneven that it causes a game environment that allows only one viable play style. The series has been moving away from a game of multiple tactical choices to a game of just spazy run and gun...now with jet packs. The Call of Duty franchise is a great one but this version is a let down. Expand

    Really a terrible game. By far the worst of the series, if you wanna know why, just go watch the trailer.
