For the campaign, you can expect the usual scripted sequences of combat that attempt to act like a Michael Bay movie with a bit more heart. At times, Advanced Warfare pulls it off and the progression of the story comes off more thought out than CoD has been in the past. Other times it's nothing overly exciting or new, but at least it's not the disappointment that Ghosts was in 2013. Kevin Spacey is excellent but unfortunately the story and dialogue don't always allow him to shine as bright as he could and should have. In the end, I put up about 10 hours or so into the campaign on the Hardened difficulty and didn't feel like I wasted my time. As for the multiplayer, that's another story. The bread and butter of re-playability for this game is at times completely broken. First time developer Sledgehammer Games, who had only done some DLC content for Modern Warfare 3 in the past, attempt to play with the CoD formula and make the game feel a bit more modern and fresh. Very seldom does it feel like they succeeded. Maps are uninspiring and the lack of dedicated server AGAIN ruin the connectivity portion of this game. Using the exosuit for avoidance is borderline useless because your reactions might be fast enough, but the network latency isn't and as a result your attempts to survive end in tears. It's a major pitfall for CoD, the only major shooter launched regularly that has avoided the superior networking path to this day. Dedicated servers are supposedly in the works but are not available in the first weeks of the game and not every platform will get them (major bummer for some). Gametypes are largely carry-over from previous CoD games and it makes everything feel dated and overly familiar even with the changes made. Scorestreaks are impressive in some ways, especially in customization and add-on capabilities, but again too much carry-over leaves the once-bright-spot of CoD as nothing more than a flicker. As for the cooperative Exo Survival, it's Modern Warfare 3's survival mode rehashed. It's neither good nor bad and is probably the best challenge you'll get without being competitive against other players. The problem is that we've seen this done time and time again through other franchises (Halo, Gears of War, earlier CoD games) that the inclusion of this portion of AW feels like a last-minute add-on. It uses all of the same maps as the traditional matchmaking playlists and limits you to a four-player squad.

    Overall, Advanced Warfare is a fairly decent game, but Call of Duty veterans will absolutely find the "been there, done that" catchphrase to be exceedingly true yet again. Advanced Warfare was supposed to be the mold-breaker that put CoD back into favorable territory for gamers, not just critics, but instead feels like a good idea that wasn't fully executed. If you haven't played CoD much in the past, this will be a good game all around for you. As for me, I've played every CoD title since Call of Duty 2. Modern Warfare 2 and the first Black Ops seem to be the last days of glory for this franchise that has since fumbled a bit more with each game launch. At least Sledgehammer tried to do something to make it fun again, that counts for something. Perhaps it's time for Activision to realize they've beat a dead cow and let CoD have a long time out before coming back in the future.

As far as multiplayer goes, its a sad game with nothing interesting or innovative to be found. For a brand as big as COD, you would expect them to set the standard, not regurgitate stuff from other games and still only do it half-assed. This franchise has been clown shoes for the past 3 offerings. And not that great before then save MW 2 and WAW. For a "next gen" offering, its even more of a tragedy. Graphics are fairly vivid but lack any dimension or atmosphere. Sound is ok, but after hearing Battlefield or Destiny, they seem a bit bland. You just expect more from a "AAA" title. Gameplay is not nearly as fluid as past offerings and the EXO suit is more of an annoyance than anything. Others have done it far better (Titanfall, Killzone, Crysis, Destiny {jump mechanics}). But by far the most horrible part of this abortion, is the fanbase. Listening to the **** that falls out of these kids' mouths can be mildly entertaining for about 3 min. Then, its annoying and becomes a symbol of the idiocy and feeblemindedness of the **** that allow this kind of game to be made. I assure you, anyone that has rated this game higher than a 6, has the I.Q. Of a chimp with downs syndrome. Sledgehammer need to pack it up, they have brought nothing new to the table. The fact that this franchise continues to keep feeding it fan-base the same floppy dick, and the fact that they keep gobbling it up, is a testament to the stupidity of mankind. Expand

    I only gave it a 4 because at least it is a playable game. Call of duty has failed yet again to ADVANCE their warfare past call of duty 4:modern warfare. it has the same exact feel in running, shooting, and now they have stolen many elements from a close competitor: titanfall.

    Short campaign. We beat it in 4 hours. Mediocre multiplayer. Seems like the creator of these games has stopped caring or something. Please put more effort into the next game. This isn't worth $60. Give to charity instead.

    there is no invention or art in this game ... and if you played any call of duty game in the passed 5 years you played them all , maybe if the developers take more time than they already did or stared working in a new IP
    they may come up with something Special and innovated.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. worse game in the series (and that's not including ghost its just that bad that it should not be counted)
    ok so this game is really not that good and i cant really find one pro with it so here are all my cons
    - story i mean this is awful all it is guy goes bad you then have to shoot all bad guys next big explosions then set off some type of nuke (DNA bomb) and thats it just paper thin plot with no depth
    -game play know you may like the new double jump stuff but i hate, its really annoying and makes fire fights a lot more boring/longer i mean when you play MP and your with noobs and all they do is double jump around or double jump on to roofs makes for one boring MP worse in the seires
    -co-op mode know i love my zombies mode from WAW and BO1 but they take survival mode from MW3 why its so boring then you have to beat 200 or 250 waves of that crap to unlock a 4 minute zombie wave which is really boring there more like muntants
    but i could go on and on but i dont want to bore you with this boring game if you want a good cod to play go back to BO1 or before that thats when cod had its last glory days and for every one rating this game a ten WHAT ARE YOU ON?

Advanced Warfare however steals from Halo, Crysis, and a few others you can think of while not creatively changing the COD feel but rather preserving it and its outdated feel. They have taken the easy way yet again and didn't change much of what they didn't steal from other games.

    The game is designed for new players and constantly offensive players. The latency, spawns, and endless flanks all narrow the skill gap, meaning performance is much less dependant on player skill. How can it be if any player can be instantly killed from even the most bad players, and excess flanks that create bad spawns allows for easy flanking from multiple paths, ensuring that no matter your skill level that you can still win by catching your opponents off guard a lot of the time, then getting flanked yourself by a bad nearby spawner. Then, spawn right around a corner from another player, attack from one of the many flanks, die by a flanker, repeat. There is no focus on 1 v 1 confrontations. It plays like an arena, with players taking turns flanking each other, which doesn't take much skill at all.

    The game, from map design to weapons, perk system etc, is made for rushing flankers. Try another play style, and you'd be at a major disadvantage. The multiplayer is too fast paced and chaotic and doesn't support better standard paced strategies.

    As a defensive kind of player who likes to see the outcome of most battles largely based on player skill ; not latency, spawns, flanks, etc, and demands complete changes to the feel of the game and not stolen ideas, I am once again disappointed.

This would all be fine but the spawns and maps don't compliment it. Dying 5 seconds after you re-spawn is likely. Most map layouts are very circular making strategy games like S&D just rush and flank faster than the other team. Hard core mode (personal favorite from previous cods) can be extremely frustrating with every position having 4-5 possible flank and a spray from the double jumped dodging enemy killing you from behind. Playing as a team is nearly impossible with the lack of choke points as an enemy can get behind you in a dozen different ways. This is a run in gun game to the extreme if that's your thing this will be a good fit. If you are about strategy or outplaying the enemy I recommend passing this up.

    The exo suits they include in the game ruin what was a previously fun multiplayer (ghosts aside). The game is extremely chaotic - you're constantly getting killed from the sides and behind because everyone moves so fast. There's no map control or rewards for good positioning. The game is just who has the better reactions.

    I hate to say this but this is probably the worst game I've played in my entire life. I bought the game the day it hit the shelves and sold it two months later. Terrible lag. It tries to live up to its title "Advanced warfare" by adding exo suits but all exo suits are is unadvanced, stupid, and an easy way for others to kill you. Don't buy this game! It sucks!

Yet I will give it credit I liked it more then ghosts but that does not mean that this is a good game. Short campaign and the multi-player makes me never want to play online EVER again.

    The campaign is some what good but the game play by itself is SO boring that I can hardly explain it. Basically bullets, face and BAM. There's not really any challenge in the game what so ever, even when you are on the hardest mode. I don't know who the heck made the campaign, but it is not realistic at all. Nobody would just attack America right out of the blue, not to mention that he said that at the United Nations. I'm just going to spoil the game for you because it is not worth going through the hour of story. The graphics (Chuckles) nobody cares about graphics unless you are a 15 year old fan boy.

    The multi player is nearly tiresome, the game play is junk, the severs are as solid as wet bread, and you guessed it more of the squeaky 10 year old little idiots that are yelling to their mom to get more chocolate milk and skittles. Campers, quick scopers you get the picture. But I don't know how they screwed up the spawn points SO badly. I can not even spawn because I get killed because there are 2 spawn points. 2! That's it? I don't know how you screw it up so badly the makers of call of duty but you do it every time.

    I'm not even going to count the survival crap as another part of the game because it is a BIG waste of time, and you don't even get anything out of it.

    Overall the game is not even worth 5 dollars, if Xbox gave this game away for free then I would say go for it. But other than that this game is not worth to play at all just another cash grab that the makers of call of duty want to make more of those shiny graphics that are apparently so freaking important. But in my opinion it is just a rip off of titan fall, basically almost everything in here is just a rip off of titan fall. Whoever says it isn't is just in denial cause they know. HEY SHUT UP COD FAN BOYS! This IS a rip off of titan fall get over it. But I guess I will end in a good note because I sad I liked it better then Ghosts. So there's that.

    Overall score: 25/100

    This game(if you can call it that) is rubbish. Coming away from Far Cry 4 to this is a total descent to the pits. Did the Sledgehammer think that by making Kevin Spacey their man that it would make the gameplay better? Didnt work. Back to the store you go.

I'm not even bad at it - I just find it boring at this point. It was cool with COD: MW, but now it's stale. Adding some gadgets, abilities, etc., doesn't cut it - it's still the same basic game.

    The graphics aren't that great, however, I'm pretty sure noone expects them to be at this point. The single player campaign was forgettable. You'll obvsly not be playing through that gem again. Honestly, COD: Ghosts was at least a point and a half better than this game.

My second issue is the same that i had with ghosts: they might as well add only 2 weapon categories to this game's multiplayer: SMGs and Assault rifles. Why use a sniper when you will get blown away by an AR that has the same range, accuracy, and fires far faster. Why use a shotgun when your gonna get beaten 9/10 times by smg users that kill you up close. Why even include these specialized guns when more generic weapons are better in every way. Just about every player uses one of those two gun types (smg, ar) and the person who wins ALWAYS does. You might as well just save time and money by just including one gun called "generic rifle".

A lot of us have been looking forward to a new COD that's a lot like COD4 and WAW etc., including myself. Wasn't really looking forward to another futuristic shooter to be honest.

    To start things off, once you get this bad boy installed, you will get a personal thank you from Sledgehammer Games. The campaign is awesome and the multiplayer is a down right blast! Multiplayer will seem crazy, different and very hectic at first, but you'll get used to it quickly. Once one gets used to the exo abilities, wild map designs and the verticality of the game, you won't want to put the controller down. Even though the game is set in the future, the COD feel is for sure still there and it's not too futuristic either. Paintball mode makes it easy to track your shots and is definitely a very cool option to the game. There are some really fun new game modes like Uplink, which is pretty much like capture the flag, but instead of a flag, you carry and can even pass a small spherical satellite that needs to be brought to the upload site in order to gain team scores. There's also classic mode which takes away the exo abilities for that old school type gameplay if it's desired. Excellent balance of weapon types, perks and score steaks. At first it may be tough obtaining the score streak rewards, but they come easier as you start to master your classes and play style.

    I have enjoyed the COD's of the past, especially COD4 and WAW. Black Ops and yes even Ghosts were fun too, but this may now be the "King of The Hill" by a long shot. Even though I enjoyed the past COD's, it's been a long time since I've had that "itch" to play and play again. If you liked COD in the past and are looking for a fresh twist of things, this is your game. Once again, the game will take some getting used to and sometimes it's hard to accept change, but just strap in and hold on tight because you have a wild ride in store for yourself.

    Thank you Sledgehammer Games for bringing us this masterpiece and revitalizing the COD franchise. You hit it out of the park and I'm so glad to have the desire to play COD again. I sure hope Treyarch is working extremely hard on next years COD because they've got their work cut out for them now. As much as I would like to see a new COD4, it's going to be very hard to go back to a "slower" type of gameplay now!

I've been playing since the first Call of Duty ever created, and my least favorite game is not COD: Ghost(not the best but not the most awful either) but COD: Mw3 was a downside, anyway to this game:

    WHen I saw the trailer and saw who made it(Sledgehammer Games) I thought for a second, oh no. Another Mw3?
    But I kept a open mind to it. I pre-orded the Day Zero. I played it a bit and WOW I must say, maybe it's the best COD since World at War(my favorite COD). I am not a fanboy, I am normally critically(check out my ratings, on other games and movies)

    The Mulitplayer: Okay, listen, this one IS different than the other games. Same HUD and Loadout from Black Ops 2, but that's it. The EXO-Skeleton makes it run so smooth. I have always been a run and shoot guy(Giant Serious Sam fan, even my emblem is Serious Sam LOGO), and this Game will give us a chance with that. The Quickscope is reduced, so it is harder(I love it) the map are from Small to Large, so it's always fresh. Maps have the dynamic touch from Ghost, some of them changes. Litteraly. There is this one map I can't recall the name on, you are there capturing the flags, suddenly a voice is speaking, "we need to open the doors, a deadly gas is inbound". suddenly the flags disapeaer and a new area of the map will open and with NEW possiblities, it's a fresh idea for COD, and it's the right way, at the beginning I thought. COD AW would kill the franchise, but it have only saved it.
    Make your own character. get different weapons with more damage or less. It's NEW for COD, I know other games already have added it for their games years ago. But we are focusing on COD and not Borderlands and Battlefield, it's a positive way for COD and it's the right.

    I have completed Single Player, and Oh Boy it's one of the better Campaigns in the COD Franchises.

    I would highly recommend COD: AW for anyone who is missing a good and FUN MP.
    (The survival OPs is like the one from MW3) nothing new has changed.

    But I am only reviewing short about MP, because that's the only thing peope will be focusing and playing.
    (I am not a douche, but it is sadly true)

    (Sledgehammer games said from the beginning, they made COD AW, to make it a fun MP and not "taken that much seriously" as the previously games in Franchise, and it sure delivered that. There is less raging in this game, because you CAN have good time.. and make nice and fun kills.

    Buy it! if you need some games lately.

Advanced warfare opens up once again in the future (who would have thought) as you play poorly developed guy no.12 as he fights cliche movie villain no.7 as they fight using monologues in the most cinematic experience in the most fast paced shooter of all time. As you apparently play as someone your supposed to care about who cares about other people. Now my question is, if i already hate the protagonist why the hell should i like the even more unlikable secondary characters "because plot dammit". Now since i cant in my own words describe the stupidity that is the campaign ill let you invent it for yourself. See that COD i'm giving a person choice wink **** wink you dense bastards. I honestly wish that combat was solid i wish i could, but its as variable as a person with dementia remembering where the toilet is. The game throws random equipment at you, telling you use that, when honestly the game isn't all that hard and bang, bang shooty shooty always works so why change tactics, thruster jump is only limited by COD's love of invisible walls and development shortcuts that makes me think did i buy hold my hand simulator 2014. Now onto the important part the multiplayer, it's **** and honestly if you buy a game just for multiplayer i feel sad for you. That concludes the piss-tacular review and i hope you find this travesty as appalling as i did

I mainly play COD for multiplayer and still spend a decent amount of time playing Black Ops 2 (where I have a 2.5KDR after almost 80,000 kills) - so it really pains me to only give Advanced Warfare a 4/10.

    The thing is the game *could* be brilliant. But in it's current form it's simply frustrating to try and play. Why? The main issue is the horrendous netcode. I know that Black Ops 2 sometimes has strange things going on with lag compensation, but Advanced Warfare takes it to a whole new level of being broken.

    I've lost track of the number of games I've played now where the people who are dominating have 1 red bar and everyone else has a 'perfect' connection. The time to kill is stupidly low - you will frequently take 2 random shots from some guy lagging across the map and die without even seeing them. Or you try and 1v1 someone and empty a whole clip into them (hearing all the hit markers go off) only for them to somehow kill you and if you watch the kill cam you haven't hit them at all. There's other times when empty a whole clip at someone who is running or boost dodging in front of you and hit nothing but air despite what seems like perfect aim.

    I think the real problem behind Advanced Warfare is that the gameplay is designed to be too quick for what the netcode in it's current form can handle. It's amusing to watch people jumping and boosting in stutters when you can tell it's meant to be fluid motion.

    I'm holding out hope that Activision will actually honour their promise of dedicated servers and hopefully Sledgehammer will fix the netcode, or else I think a lot of people will be abandoning this ship soon.

Well, 50% of the time I'm dead within 5 seconds of my f***ing spawn due to some degenerate nerd hiding in the corner or spawning behind me AFTER I HAVE JUST SPAWNED!! The aiming is catered for noobs, I've lost count of the amount of times I have been sprayed across the map by an assault rifle with not one touch of recoil hahahahahahha, may as well be playing against 6 people using aimbots. Everyone f***ing jumps around like super mutant kangaroos with ADHD on steroids LOL!!!!! There are about 20 guns in the game, which is disgustingly pathetic and lazy, especially when compared to the amount on offer in Battlefield 4, and 80% of the guns are absolute s***. The graphics are just unacceptable for next gen, especially when compared to BF4, Destiny and Killzone. The maps are absolute garbage, everyone sits hiding on roofs and head glitching. The melee bulls*** is laughable it's that bad, one punch and your soldier is f***ing dead, ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? So instead of using your gun TO SHOOT PEOPLE WITH, it's more effective to punch a soldier??? BAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAA, oh my f***ing word!!!!! So take all of these problems and then throw in the state of the CoD community (70% 14 year olds or younger, then the majority of the rest are obese nerds). All of this coming from someone who used to love CoD games, but now it's nothing but a disgusting, embarrassment of a community and a plethora of problems. I really am baffled as to how CoD has gotten this bad.

    So to sum up, this game is a steaming pile of horse S*** 0/10. Thanks for reading.

Sure there might be a handful here and there, perhaps parents picking the game up for their kids or individuals getting it for their significant others, but the vast majority of players who go out and get a Call of Duty game know exactly what they're getting.

    Call of Duty is nothing if not predictably stagnant when it comes to over the top cinematic single player experiences and a multiplayer suite that hasn't substantially changed for the better part of a decade. All you have to know when deciding whether or not to buy a CoD game is to determine whether or not the core mechanics of the franchise are worth dropping $60 on every year. It is entirely up to you.

    If you're a fan of the series and said mechanics then this game is probably an 8. If you were once a fan of the series but found that you lost your appetite for it once it became stale then it's probably more akin to a 4. If you find the lack of gameplay advancement repugnant, as many do, then you will absolutely hate it and no doubt join the masses of haters who rate the game with a 0. This naturally begs the question of why you would buy a game you know you're going to hate, but I guess some people get off on that kind of thing.

    Tossing the irrational "zero" scores out, lets split the difference on the assumption that you know what you're getting when you buy this game and call it a 6. Buy the ticket take the ride, or don't. It's entirely up to you.

    Its not inventive or anything but sometimes you get into a game thats good and it reminds you of what it SHOULD be but its not.

    - Most, if not all maps encourage a kind of frantic, overwhelming randomness to combat flow. Variety in map design (such as limiting flanking routes, fortifying objective points, or forcing face to face confrontation) would help decrease paranoia and player vulnerability. On the other hand, a map or two that capitalizes a bit more on “verticality” might make jump boosting feel less gimmicky and more essential overall.
    - Gun balancing issues (some guns are blatantly too circumstantial to be practical).
    - The loot reward system is ultimately an uninspired attempt at gamer crack.
    - Melee feels notably awkward a bit too frequently.
    - Audio is nothing special (headsets do seem a bit less advantageous than they were in previous COD’s).
    - Graphics are nothing special
    - Game mechanics are nothing special
    - Various connectivity issues as well as a few glitches/bugs.

    *Da Good(ish)*
    - The jump boosting mechanic and a few other design choices (in part) attempt to dissolve what is otherwise a widely reinforced idea (to some degree), that the COD series (after 4) is generally camper friendly, and requires little to no “skill” to play relatively well. Though I think the attempt is a step in the right direction (a wee little baby step), Sledge still has much further to go if they wish to reinstate the competitive nature of MW while maintaining innovation- and by now, many people are losing hope, if they haven’t lost it all already.

    On campaign
    - Too short, cinematic, generally decent.

I mean come on is this the future? Is this innovation I think not, when I first saw the sneak peaks I thought it looked like a rip off of titanfall... but in a more familiar setting which aside from not being able to wall run its not far off but its far from being as polished. On the plus side I like the idea of the supply drops and getting loot from them and the customising of the player character is good... however I am at a loss as to how this got 84 and destiny which is a far better game despite its lack of content and story got a 77????? WTF????? really, just dont waste your money, save it and buy something worthy of the money, boycott the rubbish that is COD until they start producing something that actually returns to the roots and provides a solid multiplayer experience... of course if your a spotty 12 year old chav then buy away it will keep you from annoying us adults on other games.

The campaign has a decent story and Kevin Spacey is a definite plus, especially for House of Cards fans, but while the story was interesting its still the basic Call of Duty "bad guy taking over the world" theme and the general gameplay is still "shoot all the enemies to beat the level".

    The multiplayer experience is absolutely awful. They are still using p2p instead of dedicated servers so the lag compensation gives certain players a huge advantage.

    The only new thing to multiplayer is the "exo suit" which acts like a jet pack. This is cool for about 5 minutes and then gets annoying. It again makes strategic game play impossible. People can get across the map very quickly so spawn killing is pretty common. It also makes it impossible to play stealthy and flank the enemy since people just fly across the map.

    The maps are way too complex making it impossible for any kind of strategic gameplay as even very good players will often get killed by some random enemy popping up behind them. The maps also make it difficult to do anything other than run and gun and as a result games are hectic with most K/D ratios being close to 1:1.

    The perks and killsteaks are basically all the same, except there are not really any good offensive killstreaks. You can now modify killstreaks, for example you can add a scrambler ability to the UAV in exchange for requiring more points to unlock it, this is a cool feature but its defeated by the uselessness of of most of the killlstreaks.

    Overall, I wish I had bought the disk version so I could sell this game. I'd much rather stick with Ghosts. If you like fast paced run and gun 1:1 K/D ratio gameplay, then you will probably like this game, but if you like to use more realistic strategies or stealth and don't like being shot trough walls because of lag compensation, you will be wasting your money. All you get that's new is a jet pack, awful maps, and tons of lag. I haven't been this disappointed in a game purchase in a long time.

    I don't even know where to start. Only played an hours worth but the controls are arcade-y as **** aiming down the sights and you can barely turn left or right to track your target, even with high sensitivity. Hit detection and aim assist feel really bad too but that might just take some getting used to.

    Must have been spawn killed at least 1 in 10 deaths, which doesn't sound like a lot

    Must have been spawn killed at least 1 in 10 deaths, which doesn't sound like a lot but it is (FYI mostly had a 2.0 KDR I am not **** :P).

    Lag compensation is still clearly alive, watching some kill cams it is hilarious to see the enemy emptying an entire clip at you while on your screen the guy fired like one round.

    Maps are clearly designed for the extra vertical dimension but it just makes them a cluster**** because in addition to there being multiple entry points to any position there are multiple entry points on 2-3 levels now, tactical gameplay using choke points is gone you are exposed constantly.

    And jesus christ the graphics are ugly, it's like Duke Nukem 3D got textures from Duke Nukem Forever, but the level of detail is **** MW2 looked better ffs. Next gen? More like last gen.

    The shallow attempt to advance this game have gone worthless. I bought it reading the reviews hoping it would be more like Titanfall. I was wrong.

The only thing that they changed has been the fact you can jump real high and climb up on stuff, which sounds cool at first, until you realize you move really slow and jumping makes you a bigger/slower target (just like sprinting). So what will happen is, you will run into a room, and get shot in the back by a guy standing in the corner, Just like every other Call of Duty Game ever. The random respawns are horribly annoying because people spawn directly behind you and shoot you in the back. (classic call of duty) The story mode is a joke. I played through the entire Call of Duty Ghost's campaign and thought it was okay it was short but i liked it for the most part. But this is just horrible, The character progression the story, everything seems like a crappy fiction story someone wrote at 12 years old. The graphics are extremely overrated, Lots of terrible terrible environments made shiny by some filters, I wish I could attach some pictures highlighting this, but I cannot. Maybe I am not the best person to be reviewing this because I haven't enjoyed a COD game since MW2 but this game has not brought back anything to the franchise or added any truly new exciting features. Please just let Call of Duty die. Thanks Expand

    Do yourself a favor....if you need to play it, by all means do Gamefly...because in the end, you'll have 60 bucks minus the fees for gamefly to use on other games HOPEFULLY that will be better.

    Although this version of CoD claims to be geared toward both online competitive PvP shooting, and story-based narrative experience, the narrative part is so brief that it seems put there just to make a claim.

    HONEST REVIEW: It's astonishing to me how much Activision and their subsidiaries blatantly lie about games. Dedicated servers as promised? None. Quickscoping toned down? Not at all.

    The game connects so poorly it boggles the mind. Lag compensation is back and worse than ever. If you have a solid, four bar connection be prepared to have a nice smooth experience where none of your bullets ever land and you die amazingly quick. To people with three and two bars. If someone has one bar, run for the hills. Just about every game I've seen, people with two bars will be at the top of the leaderboard going 30-5 with impunity.

    Graphics are what you'd expect. The maps look like they were made with absolutely no forethought. They have numerous routes and levels. Something that looks like you should be able to jump to is out of bounds. Often causing you to fall out of bounds and die.

    There are NO enemy sounds whatsoever. Someone can double jump above you and run a marathon behind you, and you won't hear a sound. EVER.

    The game was made for the guy that doesn't have sound. Doesn't have a quality connection. And made for him to succeed.

    I don't know why they decided to do a Halo and Titanfall type game, and do so incredibly badly.

    Because the game has been out so long and is made year after year, this mess of a multiplayer game should receive a ZERO. But the five or six hour campaign (for me, on hardened) was decent.

    Multiplayer still has the same issues. I get 10 hit markers, but the guy doesn't die. I die after two shots. Spawn kills are out of control. I have at least 100 spawn deaths since 11/3. Spawn, someone behind me, I die.

    There is nothing new to this game except guns and maps, and the AWFUL boost jump, which ruins gameplay. THIS ISN'T TITANFALL, but Sledgehammer sure did their best to copy it. At least Titanfall remains playable.

    All in all 4/10. Same CoD. Same angry children who don't deserve an Xbox One. Same old crap. Don't listen to the fanboys and don't spend $60 on this trash

    Edit/Update: Another day in and still the same garbage. 10 hit markers on a guy, yet I die in two shots. The multiplayer maps are way too wide open. Spawn kills are getting even worse. Literally spawned when a teammate was running by with a guy chasing him and died instantly. Spawned, started running and got shot in the back isntanteously. Multiplayer is utter garbage in this game. Even Ghosts was better.

    Part 2: Finally experienced all the multiplayer maps. Outside of the campaign, which I just beat on veteran, the game just isn't fun. Spawning and getting instantly killed more than 20% of the time, a nd going negative almost every game because of that fact is rediculous. Shooting someone first and shooting them more, getting killed. It's just not fun. The game is not fun. After two days, I will be returning this piece of garbage. Do not waste your time. And do not waste your money.

    While the single player is graphically amazing, it's overall play and control fall short. Additionally, the beauty of the single player campaign only serves to bring more attention to the lack luster multiplayer graphics. I believe lower visual quality was required for smoother play.

    While smooth gameplay is appreciated it goes unnoticed when coupled against awkward, and dare I say broken, exo mechanics. People jumping awkwardly and changing direction midair simply make the aim mechanics a horrible experience. I find myself constantly adjusting look sensitivity based on the level layout and weapon of choice (even within the same weapon class.) At the end of the day I think this would be a decent addition to the ailing franchise had time been spent focusing on existing issues rather than adding new ones.

You will die from people that shoot you before you could even see them, you will get killed after you have gone behind cover, you will put multiple bullets into your target and see on the replay that none of those hits registered because you were already dead. You will be put into games where you will have no chance of winning a 1v1 gun battle with anyone half-competent at online shooters. To be fair, there will also sometimes be games where you have a decent connection and you are the one with the unfair advantage, but who wants to play like this, where skill is made irrelevant by the horrible matchmaking and lag compensation? Besides, the bad experiences stick out in your mind much more than the good, if anything the good experiences highlight just how badly you are being cheated. We tend to remember the bad experiences more than the good, and when the bad experiences make you want to fly your xbox out the window, well there's something wrong with that.
    Honestly, if the connection issues weren't present this would be a great game but the same could be said of all the COD's since MW2. In the past, these issues could be overlooked because there wasn't any decent alternative. But Titanfall, Battlefield 4, and Destiny are 3 games that deliver a much more consistent experience. I'm not saying there isn't any lag present in those games, because any online game will have some lag but they have managed to keep it at a very playable level.
    I'm hopeful that with an update they can improve the connection issues, but these problems have been persistent for years so I'm not holding my breath. But if enough people decide that they've had enough, maybe Activision will finally fix the problem. This game could easily be a "9" if the lag issues didn't ruin the experience but unfortunately, in its present state, it's a "3".

    The problem is that doing this right from the start, as is the case with CoD Advanced Warfare, actually has detrimental gameplay effects.

    The initial cut scene on the marine landing ship is gorgeous. The subsequent drop pod sequence is atrocious. In a first person shooter, the first action I perform is a quick time event. Followed by another quick time event. More than 10 minutes pass before I fire my gun in anger.

    The first level barely teaches me the basics of the new elements (smart grenades, jump suit etc.) - instead it bombards me with more visuals and explosions OMG WATCH OUT moments than you can throw a stick at. By the time I get to the tutorial (the shooting range) I was already forced to learn everything the hard way (which is pausing the game and looking at button mappings).

    It's not that I need the game to hold my hand. But I would like to know how to get the most out of the game BEFORE I get thrown into the deep end. I don't want to be figure out gameplay mechanics which can help me be awesome in the game, 2 levels from finishing it.

    I have no idea why review sites continue to rank this game so high. Advanced Warfare has done nothing to drive the franchise or even the genre forward. It looks prettier than the last few CoD games, but that's not hard with new consoles and a new engine.

    It is still the same bland story, as well as horrible game and level design which is overshadowed by set piece moments and WOW elements. If that is your thing, go for it. If you prefer to just shoot stuff - Destiny and Titanfall have that covered.

    The Multiplayer is the reason I'm giving this a low score, in fact were it not for the Campaign (which so far is stellar, COD usually gets this right) and Exo-Survival (which I personally find more enjoyable than Treyarchs Zombies) the score would probably be like a 3 or 4.

    My reasons are simple.

    1). The TTK is WAAAAAY to fast, it makes the Exo almost useless if you die before you even know you're getting shot at.

    2). This is supposed to be "Next Gen" and we still don't have dedicated servers.

    3). After playing Battlefield 4 for the first time last month 6 v 6 is a joke. A JOKE.

    4). See above for destructible environments. I throw a grenade and it DOESN'T leave a hole in the ground? Sounds like small potatoes until you see a game do exactly that.

    5). See above for levolution. In fact, their scripted events like the tidal wave and volcano eruption are a joke. A JOKE. Almost insulting in fact.

    Because of those last three things COD will get no more of my dollars until they update their ridiculously old engine to incorporate ACTUAL next gen quality games. I give kudos to sledgehammer for trying something new at least. The game is slick, the graphics are nice, it's definitely a step up from the horror show that was Ghosts, but at this point I have to agree with the so many I used to argue with. COD has become so outdated by other games it's gotten ridiculous.

This is mostly about multiplayer, but here's what I have to say about the campaign: I like the overall premise; PMCs are really cool, Kevin Spacey is good, and for the first 75% of the game, the plot is actually darn good. Then Kevin Spacey DECLARES WAR ON THE ENTIRE WORLD IN FRONT OF THE UN. THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE. He was a smart, meticulous, cold, calculating guy, then he just gets up in front of the whole world and says, "Come at me, bro." The ending is doodoo and the levels are fairly par for the course.
    Enough of that. The Multiplayer sucks. It's just not fun. They got the scorestreaks right (BO2 style rather than Ghosts style), but that's about it. The map design is meeeeehhhh, mostly bad, some good. With the exos, it feels like they're trying too hard to be different. Half the time, it's impossible to hit a person as they're flying around the map. You will constantly get stuck on random objects that a real human being would simply be able to walk over. Oh, I can fly through the air on a jetpack, but I can't step over a 8 inch tall ledge? The weapons are the worst part. ARs aren't usable without the stock attachments (which you unlock by getting hipfire kills; if you can't tell why this is retarded, the stock helps when you ADS, not hipfire. Makes ZERO sense). Only like 3 guns are actually good, but none are memorable (there are no MW2 Famases or ACRs, no MW3 MP11s or PP90s, no BO1 Famases, Galils, AK47s, or Commandos, no BO2 Peacekeepers, AN90s or R870s. The guns just aren't fun to use. Hell, even Ghosts had the Honey Badger. The game isn't fun to play at all. The movement feels smooth and it's fun to move around so quickly, but it makes the who game a freaking chore to play. It gets less and less good every time you play it. It's not the worst game of all time, it's not a 0 like all the over-reacting mouth-breathing clods on here say it is, but it's not good. It's average, slightly below average. If I could give it 5.5/10 I would. But hey, at least it's better than Destiny.

    The multiplayer got what it needed. A little variety. The Exo suits do spice it up a bit and make it feel fresh. The Campaign is interesting enough for a CoD campaign. Spacey does a pretty good job. I like what I have seen here with this CoD but it is still just another CoD. Fun off and on but none the less still has the same repetitive feel to it after a week.

    I have had this game (XBOX1) for more than a month now and I can honestly say this is the WORST COD in the series. The technical issues for this game are am embarrassment for the franchise in whole. The lag is almost as bad as Gears of War back in the day, the weapons skins are not unlocking properly, the DLC (Season pass) not working at all for days on end, and your emblem that you took hours perfecting... gone when you prestige!!! Some of these issues are being addressed, and yes the game plays better than launch day, but it is still a turd. I like the exo suits, however it feels like a clunky Titanfall rip-off, except no ingenuity in this one like Titanfall.

    This review is for multiplayer only. Not much new to see here folks. This game is essentially a spruced version of Black Ops 2, in my opinion.

This game is essentially a spruced version of Black Ops 2, in my opinion. While I wouldn't call it bad, there have been no changes significant enough to make it stand out from the last half dozen CODs. There are a couple of nice editions - the jetpack for one. I didn't think I would like it at first but they managed to incorporate it seamlessly into the game and it hasn't bothered me at all. Also there are a few "powers" such as cloaking, shielding, and faster health regeneration. These additions are fine and may add a little to the game, and the graphics are improved, however, not enough has changed/improved to make me spend another year playing this game. It's just the same old thing. Some same negatives still exist as well - poor spawning, phantom hit markers, nonsense quick scoping, annoying children (and adults for that matter...). These thing being said, I could probably still allow myself to get sucked into playing this non-stop for the next year - I have (much to the disgust of many gaming "elitists") played COD rather religiously since the first Modern Warfare and have had my share of fun - and probably could still have some with this. So I still give this game a 7-7.5 as the potential is still there for some addictive multiplayer action. But I for one have burned out on COD. It is time for something new. So just be forewarned - nothing revolutionary here.

    I recently bought the game out of curiosity after reading reviews that a lot of people ended up putting in and for the first time in my life playing a Call of Duty game, this one actually gave me the most difficulty in terms of gameplay.

Never in my life did I struggle or get so mad in multiplayer due to cheap kills and unexplained deaths. The exo suits are a good addition to the game but can really make situations frustrating if your on the other end of someones muzzle. The three first assault rifles are extremely hard to handle for some odd reason and with that said, you can NOT play multiplayer effectively if you don't have the quickdraw attachment for your weapon. If you use an assault rifle, you'll almost always end up at a disadvantage in a one on one fight. It just feels like I can't even play just to have fun anymore. I'm always getting frustrated and it's more of a stressful game than anything. I actually regret buying it. Expand

    Fun when it actually works properly. However it has too many problems.

    1) There is CONSTANT interp lag, worse than any other FPS I've ever played. What you're seeing is never the same as your enemy. You'll shoot someone 3 times with a shotgun, and then watch the Kill Cam of your death and it not even show you shooting. People will be reloading and facing the other direction and shoot

You'll shoot someone 3 times with a shotgun, and then watch the Kill Cam of your death and it not even show you shooting. People will be reloading and facing the other direction and shoot through themselves to kill you.

    2) The game has very little variety. There's not much reason to choose a weapon aside from an assault rifle. Most of the maps are basically the same. A big circle with a few buildings in the middle. Almost every person uses the the same the same perks, scorestreaks and weapon attachements.

    3) Using a combination of perks and weapon attachments allows you to NEVER show up on the mini-map regardless of what you're doing. Guess what combination everyone uses? Prepare to die a lot never seeing your opponent on the mini-map, never hearing them shoot because of interp lag, and never hearing their footsteps because the sound is so low/non-existent.

    4) Unlocking weapon attachments is more frustrating than fun. Want a scope so that you can kill enemies from a distance? Yeah well... you need to kill enemies from a distance first.

    This doesn't really feel like a Call of Duty game. To start off, the campaign is mediocre.

The story has a great concept with an evil CEO essentially trying to take over the world but the developers don't execute it. The characters are kind of boring, except Kevin Spacey who does a wonderful job. The setting of each mission is alright, some missions have a lively environment while others are a little dull. The missions themselves are okay, with the exception of a fun stealthy mission that every Call of Duty game includes. The overall gameplay of the campaign is okay with some fun parts here and there. The multiplayer, which is the biggest reason everyone buys a Call of Duty game, is not that good. The biggest reason I don't care for it is because the new addition of jet packs ruins it. Jet packs can be plain cheap and lets the enemy just shoot straight into the air when you're shooting at him, and you're not quick enough, then he kills you. They let people escape from danger too easily. Yes, there is a playlist that disables jet packs, but all the maps were made for jet packs, so they seem hard to maneuver around. It also feels like enemies take WAY too many bullets to kill. It can be frustrating when they jet pack around and your clip runs out and they get away. Kill streaks, especially airships with guns, even take a lot to kill someone, so they're almost pointless. The new supply drop system gives you different loot through out your online experience. It's stupid because loot is basically random and you need to be completely lucky to get some of the best guns. The other mode called "Exo Survival" has you fight off waves of enemies. It's not that great, and I got bored after playing it for a little while. There are a few upsides to the game though. The graphics are pretty great and the cut scenes are phenomenal. You can customize your character with different helmets and gear to make him look totally unique. And lastly, with all honesty, if the campaign didn't have Kevin Spacey, it would've been even worse. Advanced Warfare doesn't even feel like a Call of Duty, and I could simply do without this one. Expand

Now that I am playing this game after so many years I can finally say that I feel refreshed and the series is coming back alive like it did back with COD 4. The movements are way more fluid than "Titanfall" (everyone compares this game to Titanfall lol) because they didn't throw in the wall running and extra wall hanging. When a game has too many movements and actions, it gets really tiresome to play and Advanced Warfare nailed it on the head with how seamless the game runs. Guns are great as well as the sounds they produce. In a game that I recently thought was over doing itself in its create a class section has finally figured out perfect harmony from customization to weapons and perks.

    The campaign does the usual excellent job of punishing you for playing the game instead of sitting on the rolocoaster of predictable storylines. Lots of invisible walls, lack of constancy with the exo-suit abilities and what should have been a fairly enjoyable CoD campaign has turned into the usual shoot dumb enemies, complete the objective SPECIFICALLY to how the computer wants you to fulfill them... wait for AI team mates and listen to Spacey give the most cheesiest "I hate you all and I'm going to start WW3 speech" - I don't blame Spacey, he's making the best of a, quite frankly, awful plot and, at some points, cheesy writing. Oh and the campaigns only 6-8 hours, which for a £45 game, seems short - sure there's a multiplayer and an exo-yawn, sorry, survival mode but 6-8 seems a little short (but let's be thankful it's not another 4 hour campaign). After the chore of the first half, the campaign does pick up in terms of fun - especially when you get the grappling hook.

    Multiplayer - I admire Sledgehammer for not doing the same old Cod again but most of their tricks haven't payed off. The exo-suit is clunky and too easy to use when you don't want it, the dash ruins any hope of precision, the spawn system is just down right awful (especially on Free for all modes), the guns are hopelessly unbalanced, the loot system is broken, most of the maps are awful and any maps that could have a glimmer of being good are held down by Sledgehammer games' ability to come with ruddy awful ideas and implement them, without actually thinking. It's the sort of multiplayer you'll spend hours raging at, due to the hundreds of flaws and you'll quickly realize they've done nothing to fix the core problems that CoD had.

    Exo-Survival - Yawn, it's average at best. Now they've added an Exo-Zombie mode, which you have to pay for (£11.59), so - yeah, Co-Op has been turned into a cash grab by Activision.

    A thoroughly average shooter, that does nothing spectacular.

Oh yea, it's got that, and a bunch of other things we've come to know and love from COD. Inconsistent hit counters, lag compensation, best increase your latency for a better gaming experience. Oh, the best part, it's still only 12 players per game. I guess that's what your stuck with when you won't pony up $$$ to host servers so everyone can have equal network access. I'd call it a pos, but I don't think that's near harsh enough. Another $60 wasted in high hopes of a good game. Drive things like tanks/choppers/vehicles??? Not in call of duty!!! There's no need to make a shooter that you can do anything besides run around and shoot people. That doesn't get old at all... Snipe? Sure you can snipe when the entire map is the size of a football field. The fact that the game play has been EXACTLY the same for nearly 5 yrs means I should spend $60 for **** weapons, inconsistent kills, and well... I still can only hear like one other person in game chat sometimes. Bugs??? Oh yea, they've got'em. How bout standing on top of a building shooting a guy down below that doesn't see you. wait! he saw me now and can one shot me with an assault rifle or a pistol from 1/2 the map away. Bang up job COD!!! Yes, other games do have bugs, but they are far from being the same exact garbage every single new release. And they actually fix them. It's not like you had a year to plan this out. Did you? I think the best part of this game is the trailer, everything else is standard COD.
    Summary:
    only 12 players in games - still...
    inconsistent hit counters
    LAG - which can't be helped when you don't have individual server hosting. Seriously?
    game chat issues
    party chat issues
    When moving too fast console can't process what's going on fast enough, so your going to die basically, even if you start shooting the person 2 sec before they see you. (yes, we've duplicated it.) as example, shooting a guy in the back with 1/2 a clip of hit markers flying everywhere, they turn around and 1 shot you with a pistol.

The beauty of Call of Duty is that you can be an professional gamer, spend hours after hours on this game doing what you do, or you can be your typical casual gamer and play every now and then. The similarity between the two is that you will both be immersed, both have fun and both get frustrated at times.

    After the mediocre Ghosts, Call of Duty is back on track with this new installment. Advanced Warfare is a great game to the franchise with a brand new movement system, an excellent campaign, and a surprisingly new-feeling Multiplayer.

    Call of duty is an example of how the anual games are a fraud. The game only has the positive element in the multiplayer mode, because there's no more campers that destroy the game.
