    Honestly, a great leap forward for the series. Movement is fluid and fun. Multiplayer maps are outstanding. Let's put Ghosts behind us - this is a great CoD game.

    Amazingly done. This Call of Duty is What we have all been waiting for. I'll keep this short and to the point. The campaign so far is great and playing online is tons of fun.

    This game is undeniably better than probably all CODs since MW2. Volla...! :)
    Graphics + Campaign (better and longer) + Multiplayer gameplay + Exosuits = 10/10

    Very good COD (MUST READ) and may be the best yet!

I was somewhat skeptical about purchasing the game after seeing the trailers and reading / watching a ton of reviews (good and bad opinions), but I'm sure glad that I did. 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!

    COD:AW is a solid game that finally delivered the innovation that we were expecting in Ghosts. The campaign was entertaining and spot on with the standards set by the MW series.

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.

    A lot of people are saying that this is the same COD experience as every year, don't listen because they haven't played it. This is COD on steroids and the verticality makes a massive difference to the MP.

    I got this for £40 and it's worth every single hard earned penny.

I honestly can say I haven't played a Cod game since Black Ops since the franchise really started to wear on me. 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. Go get this game if you ever enjoyed the pre Black Ops days !! Expand

    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. Though the CO-OP mode is lacking right now, there is a promise for Zombies in the future DLC packs

The learning curve may be a little steep for casual gamers which is probably not a great thing. The allure of cod has always been its ease of access for all level of players. The quick scope crowd may not be happy with this game either. The movement of the game doesn't lend itself to the quick scope sniper. Gun balance is ok so far but hard to judge any of that before a few patches. If you are a fan of cod, you will assist and have fun. If you have never played cod, then I'd say pick it up for the campaign and give the multiplayer a try. Over all not a bad game. Expand

While not being that long or having much depth, the plot remains tense throughout. The graphics in the cutscenes are stunning and the motion capture is the best I've seen. The people look so lifelike. The attention to detail such as their eyes/face/expressions are amazing. The motion capture and realistic character models really bring the camaraderie aspect of the game to life. On the other side, the action is done very well, with lots of things going on the screen at once. Gameplay wise, its a refinement of the series, but if you aren't a fan of the Call of Duty series, this installment won't change your mind as its core mechanics are the same. I'd say give it a shot though, if you like the sci fi theme. Expand

    Multiplayer Review :

    I haven't been a huge fan of Call of Duty for the last few years now, the consistent use of recycling and laziness from the developers left me somewhat irritated. This time around, I'm sort of impressed.

    Call of Duty's multiplayer aspect during the MW - MW2 era was known for it's run and gun gameplay, it was fast paced, interesting and of course, incredibly fun. Advanced Warfare seems to bring all of those aspects back in to play, and so far, it's been a pretty fun experience. Although nothing truly innovative has made it's way into the gaming world, it's new to the Call of Duty series and it brings in that feeling of freshness that the franchise truly needed.

    The gameplay at it's core is fast, fluid and will have you scaling buildings constantly, often fighting the other team to hold a higher point that will allow you to rain death on them. The EXO brings in the ability to of course, jump high and also "boost-strafe". Strafing allows you to effectively get back into cover when taking too much damage, or even hide from a group of enemies that haven't seen you yet, as fast as possible.

    The gear isn't anything truly special this time around, simply just different takes on guns that we already know of. Customization makes a return though, although from what it seems, whatever attire you equip your character with will not be seen in any of the game modes you play, only the player lobbies. To be honest, this feels like a backwards step from Ghosts, although you'd never get to see your character, showing off your badass gear in-game would have been great. This may simply just be an issue at the moment and could be patched, I'm not entirely sure.

    Maps are well designed, they're fun to traverse and due to them being far less monotone as seen in ghosts, it's easier to spot enemies without the use of something as silly as a thermal hybrid sight.

    I haven't been a true fan of Call of Duty for quite some time, although I'd pick them up yearly to play with friends, I'd never truly enjoyed them. This time around, it feels like a fresh experience and once again? Fun to play. The game is by no means perfect, it's not a completely new game whatsoever and is in need of a few tweaks here and there, but it gives the true fans of the series something that they've wanted for a while, freshness.

    The game is good, and in my honest opinion, it deserves at least an 8 / 10. Fair play to Sledgehammer Games.

The presentation and attention to detail is absolutely outstanding. So much customization and pretty maps and cool campaign moments that seem drawn from a Michael Bay or Fast and the Furious movie.

The presentation and attention to detail is absolutely outstanding. So much customization and pretty maps and cool campaign moments that seem drawn from a Michael Bay or Fast and the Furious movie. It's really amazing value for $70.

    My only real complaint is that the multiplayer gameplay is very repetitive. It's basically just a twitch shooter where you hope you can react faster than your opponent because whoever shoots first typically gets the kill. It doesn't have the variety that say Halo does with vehicles and different power weapons and actually using map control and strategy to win. It's mostly just run around like a chicken with your head cut off or stay back and camp and pick said headless chickens off as they bunny hop around in the open. Definitely fun but pretty one-dimensional gameplay. It is also incredibly frustrating when people continually manage to sneak up behind you and drop you in half a second before you can even turn around. Kinda cheap. I wish they had proper radar like there is in Halo! That said however, it is still a very fun, high-quality game and a refreshing change of pace for a new player to the series.

    The game play is what you would expect from a CoD game. Silkily smooth movement and great looking texture. The new Exo Ability’s add a much need refresh to the CoD series.

    For the People claiming that this game requires no skill are dearly mistaken. While it may have a steep learning curve due to all the new abilities the game is still very fun even when you are getting stomped.

    The new three-year development cycle granted by Activision makes Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare one of the best chapters of the series in recent years. Although hardly repeat the revolution seen in Modern Warfare trilogy, the game has fresh elements in sufficient quantity to give new life to a franchise that many considered decadent after weak Ghosts.

    The use of a less realistic scenario allowed the Sledgehammer create a more fun and varied game, which is much closer to an adventure film with elements of science fiction than a new attempt to recreate "Black Hawk Down". With this, the game can not only explore elements fleeing from reality, as constructs a plot that runs off a bit of some clichés seen in the past.

    Perhaps the greatest Advanced Warfare problem is the fact that it is a sequence of a franchise known for its very characteristic formula. Thus, it is hard not to feel that in some instances the studio had to restrict your creativity, since it was not possible to leave out certain elements already known by fans.

    However, these little slips do not interfere at all the great work done by Sledgehammer. The title can be considered the true starting point of the series in the new generation of consoles and erase the bitter taste left by his predecessor. Featuring a good mix of familiar elements and new, the title proves that it will take a long time before Call of Duty is no longer a relevant name for the industry.

The sound effects are hugely improved over past games with the guns and impacts and explosions sounding like you've been dropped into the middle of a live war zone. The weapons and technologies on display are jaw dropping. It's just a phenomenal game and experience. I was really disappointed with Ghosts, and actually would even go as far as saying I pretty much hated that game because it was so formulaic and uninteresting and looked like an Xbox 360 game graphically rather than next gen. Advanced Warfare is a huge return to form for the series and is thrilling and amazing and next gen in every way. What a turn around. Can't recommend it highly enough. Expand

I do enjoy the SP campaigns though and getting achievements. I bought an XBOX One pretty much just for this COD: AW. I wanted to see if there was physics/controls/graphics improvements that would allow me to get back into paying MP on a console. After my first 4 hours of MP I think we have a winner. But here's how I play:

    1) Only Hardcore
    2) Only Objective/team based play
    3) Usually with all players muted
    4) I play to win, not for KD

    I play my way, and that involves attacking and defending objectives. Being as tactical as possible to help my team, knowing that I'll still get shot in the back regularly, and killed by those who are faster/twitchier than I.

    And you know what, I'm having a blast doing it. It has met or exceeded my expectations. I wish the maps were bigger and had less choke points - but otherwise I am very happy. The controller feels great too. Better than PS4 or 360, but still pales in comparison to a keyboard and mouse.

It is linear, restrictive, has tons of arbitrary fail conditions (you left the combat zone!), no character development, etc. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME FOR THE CAMPAIGN.

    That said, the multiplayer is really fun. It's the first Call of Duty game I've enjoyed enough to purchase since the *original* back in the day on PC. I don't think comparisons to Titanfall really work well; it's more like a mix of Modern Warfare and Unreal Tournament, which is a VERY good thing. In fact, it makes the entire experience feel fresh to me, which is what motivated my purchase.

    It's fast paced, more skill based than previous entries, and offers LOTS more freedom to play how you want within levels. It's not the same boring game of peek-a-boo that other games have been in the series, where the entire experience is about who-saw-who-first. There's a lot more viable tactics due to the double jump and boosting abilities. The levels are for the most part very well designed and take advantage of vertical movement well, and this is a big reason the multiplayer is so fun. Lots of games that attempt to do vertical gameplay do it very poorly (rooftop snipers in BF3/4 anyone?), but AW gets it right - better than any shooter since UT 2004.

    My only criticism of the multiplayer is that there's no bumper jumper control scheme (left bumper = jump, so you can aim freely while jumping). Seems an odd oversight for a game where it's advantageous to spend as much time in combat in the air dodging around as possible.

    I also still don't think this game works well for competitive play. It's a popcorn shooter, but AW happens to be the best popcorn shooter I've played since Battlefield 2.

    Co-op modes in here aren't awful, but are too bland and by-the-numbers to be interesting.

    I'd give the multiplayer a 9-10, the campaign a 0, and the co-op a 5. Overall an 8, since multiplayer is the most important of those things.

It feels fresh because I dont' buy the game every year. I haven't finished the campaign, but to me, its just a weapons and controls demo to get you used to things before jumping into multiplayer. Its too restrictive and linear. You have to stay on the path. For some reason, the HUD on your gun that tells you how much ammo you have isn't in multiplayer, which is wierd because its pretty cool, especially since I'm a Halo fan.

    For multiplayer, I have to say its the second most fun Call of Duty game ever made. You can jump really high and the maps are designed around that. The level design is colorful, modern and excellent. I see some instant classics already. They're all small maps, which is what CoD is good at - arena style infantry combat. The perks are good and balanced. The weapons are also balanced, however, there aren't nearly as many to choose from like previous games. This is the first CoD game that has no noob tube problem. I have not once been hit with a grenade launcher. Sniping is quickscope only - bummer. Also the hit markers are too friendly. In Battlefield you actually have to hit the guy to kill him. It seems in this game as long as the gun is pointed in their general direction, its good enough. The game modes are mostly there. I miss demolition, but Search and Rescue is where I'm always at. Unlike Search and Destroy, you get a second chance if a teammate claims your dog tag before they do. The real reason I bought this game is because I bought BF4 recently and since the game has been out a year, everyone has leveled up and I'm going up against them. I'm good at Battlefield, but I never stood a chance. So I bought the new Call of Duty game and love it. Its fun, addicting and I can't stop playing it. Nothing will beat MW2's multiplayer in my opinion. It took CoD 4 and built so much on top of it. So many guns, maps, perks, killstreaks, and combos. Advanced Warfare might be better. Only time will tell. So far there's less BS such as one man army noob tubers and people boosting for nukes (I did that. It was more fun than playing because you had to find a secret spot on the map). As far as the maps go, there's not much secret spots. High Rise was really good about this, but with the way you can move, the maps work very well with your new abilities. However we need more vertical maps. This game's gameplay demands it.
    Advanced Warfare has the level design mix between Halo and Star Wars Battlefront in terms of design, Titanfall's maneuvering/ jumping abilities, Halo's duel wielding and armor abilities, and of course the Call of Duty gameplay. To me it feels like Black Ops. They even have the emblem maker. SMGs and carbines rule the maps. LMGs will get you killed. This is the most fast-paced shooter ever. Its CoD on adderall. Is it worth the money? Yes. I haven't had this much fun since MW2. Sorry if this review sounds wierd. Its 2 in the morning and I'm just rambling. To me this is a fair review. Its not original in any way. In fact they stole a lot of stuff and ideas from other games, but its FUN! and thats what matters the most.

    Campaign mode offers crisp graphical experience. You're basically a mercenary contractor.

    Survival mode pits you against waves of combatants in round based combat. You have 2 machines to upgrade skills between levels.

    If you get the ATLAS PRO EDITION, you receive some neat items to show off with. The real value is the Season Pass!

    Modern Warfare 2 was the last awesome Call of Duty game. That was 5 years ago. All the other games after that have been garbage.

Then, that was completely wiped away by the utter catastrophe that Ghosts was. However, seeing the new footage for Advanced Warfare before the release got me pretty excited. Call of Duty was being taken in a whole new direction for the better. What does the fate of CoD look like now? Pretty damn positive, actually. And I'm a guy that's not even a fan of CoD. Let's start with the campaign, which pretty much means we're starting with the negative. Even with the new things brought to the table, such as the new innovative story with Kevin Spacey playing a role (HELLS YEAAAAHHH!!!) and new Exo abilities, the campaign trips and falls on its face. I found the story to be generic and nearly identical to other CoD storylines. The gameplay is probably the best of the CoD campaigns, but that isn't saying much. Even with Kevin Spacey playing a role, the campaign just doesn't hold up. These days, I don't even know WHY I play CoD campaigns anymore. The co-op mode is quite dull, too. Look, CoD developers: if you're not going to put in a Zombies mode, don't put in co-op at all (yes, I know they're putting in a Zombies DLC mode, and yes, I definitely want to play it, BUT IT PISSES ME OFF THAT IT'S DLC). Now, though, we get to the reason to really play this game: the multiplayer. Advanced Warfare's multiplayer is the best since MW2. With the new Exo suit abilities, the multiplayer gains a new verticality, similar to Titanfall. You can double jump to high places, and dash left or right or forward or backward to dodge your enemies. I loved these abilities, and it feels more fast-paced than ever in CoD. The gun selection is pretty good, but the perks are same-old, same-old. The game is actually a lot more addictive than past games because you always know there's something to unlock around the corner. The customizing of your own multiplayer character was presented in Ghosts, and it was pretty lame. Here, however, it's sick. For the most part, this game is fairly balanced, though CoD still has the tendency to piss me off. Advanced Warfare is a light in the tunnel for this fading franchise. Expand

    This so-called "Call of Duty", It's pretty much same, like any other CoD franchise, but for some reason, Sledgehammer improve the game with Tom Cruise, Edge of Tommorow inspiration. The game multiplayer was sucks (because I hate PC gamers). The gameplay is still the same, the EXO suit was quite amazing, the story, SHORT... It's not the best FPS, but a good FPS...

    Let me start by saying this a review of the multiplayer only.

    I loved the campaign despite its flaws but that is not what I want to talk about.

    Secondly let me be honest, I love Cod a lot ! So I guess I am Biased, however, I hated ghosts and I was getting bored with the fact that they did nothing new, well let me say I as a long term fan I am very satisfied.

    I really am fed up of the titan fall comparisons though (btw I liked that game too as I gave it 9 out of 10) Just because they both include the ability to double jump it doesn’t mean that they are at all similar. The amount of options in AW is massive, you can really fine tune your classes and strategies down to a ridiculous degree and there are tons of combinations of gear and perks that allow you to cater to your own play style.

    I have to Say I love the movement mechanics, the double jump is snappy and easy to use and the boosting is a gift from the gods in terms of twitch reaction shooting. I love to play aggressively with an SMG and the new movement mechanics really allow you to take an aggressive close quarters style of play to the next level.

    Then there is the map design which is fantastic! The new verticality is integrated expertly in to the existing cod style of map design and adds a whole new dimension to proceedings whilst maintaining everything about classic cod map design that has worked for years. Also the verticality finally makes the distinction between assault rifles and Smgs feel far more pronounced. Gone are the days of players fighting over the only few spots on a map that provide good sightlines because there are now so many places for you to take advantage of the increased range of the assault rifles.

    My point is that playing with an Smg feels completely different to playing with an assault rifle and the maps are able to incorporate different areas that cater to different weapons and play styles very effectively. Of course if you hate Cod this isn’t going to change your mind but if you loved cod but felt it was getting a bit stale this will reinvigorate the game for you. The best thing that can be said about it is that it incorporates everything that players love about the game whilst adding in a ton of extra features and tactical options due to great movement mechanics and excellent map design.

    It doesn’t feel like any other game except cod. It still plays like cod. It still feels like cod, but, it has enough fresh elements to make it an extremely rewarding experience for the returning cod player.

    I cant say it enough I **** love this game!!!! Titanfall was fun but lacked the depth to really keep me returning, AW adds new elements but retains the silky smooth fast paced cod style.

    I guarantee I will still be playing this six months from now unlocking camos and challenges and still finding new combinations of weapons and equipment and different tactics to exploit.

    10 out of 10 The memory of ghosts is already vanishing!!

    This game is quite a bit of fun.

    The single player campaign was a good time, Although I actually found the storey just average, with some occasional eye rolling motion capture acting and bad lines. The action of the campaign made up for it. Some of the missions were significant fun and varied. I could tell that they were trying hard to make a good single player experience. I would have preferred to have a bit more freedom on some of the levels. I also enjoyed the new features provided by the exo suit.

    In multi-player, the exo suit does change a lot, I found the game significantly faster. I found the speed of play and movement made this game much more difficult than previous version incarnations to maintain a decent k/d ratio. Not only is it faster but you and other players have significantly more movement options and now also have worry about the vertical plane with people bouncing across rooftops as well as on the ground. The multi-player is fast and fun but takes some time to get used to the new additions. I like the pick 13 system for the create a class. The map design is great. I like all of the maps and each map have some great features and are fun to move around in.

    They should have kept "Squads" from Ghosts. The one major thing COD: Ghosts did correctly was Squads. It was a good place for new players, Much better then the Combat readiness program in this game, as new players in ghosts could select the type of play they wanted and use their normal load outs from multi-player as well as continue to earn exp for their playtime. Squads also had a Horde mode called Safeguard that is the same as the Exo-survival mode in Advanced warfare but allowed up to Six players and not just four, The squads version also allowed you to earn exp for your normal multiplayer character. I play a lot of split screen with my wife and kids, With ghosts they really enjoys the squad mode as they were able to earn Exp and build a character in a multiplayer online co-op mode. In Advanced warfare, you get the horde mode with fewer options as well as the combat readiness program, that seems like a waste of time as neither count towards a character. It seems odd that Activision would take these features away.

    Lack of Special play mode with basic game. Previous versions have had a special mode, like Zombies or Extinction. This game does not have one of these modes. Although I have heard it will be available as dlc it unlike previous versions doesn't come with the original game.

    Although a lot of fun, with some really good steps forward, Advanced warfare seems to also take away the little extra value that other editions seems to provide so it can sell it to you as dlc latter. This is a trend that many games have unfortunately.

    I still will give this game an 8 out of ten due to how much fun it is to play, Could it be better, yes. Could the story be better, yes. Could the acting be better, yes. Could they have added in more extras that previous versions of COD have had, yes. And they should have done all of these things but the end result is the game is still a lot of fun to play. It is different enough that if you are a arcade shooter fan, I would recommend getting this game. The map designs are also really really good. The graphic are also extremely good.

So, with regard to the multi-player, this is great and a real positive change to anything in recent COD's. For a start the games runs smoothly and I have not experienced any lag or glitches. I haven't got through all the weapons yet, but so far the look and feel is good and shooting has quite a raw and realistic feel (compared to some other COD games). I wasn't sure before about the idea of all that jumping around, especially as I have already played a lot of Titanfall and was concerned it would be a bit 'samey'. That being said it works really well and adds a different dimension to the maps and how the game pays. Importantly, it seems to encourage movement and the only campers I came across were those I shot from above or landed behind :-)

    So all in all a great game, which I will now buy my own copy of! Not sure if quite a 10, but given it full points to counter some of the trolls who seem to be scoring it a zero for no reason other than they are anti the COD franchise.

    (I'd actually place this game around an 8.5, but there are not half scores on this site. I went with the 8 rather than the 9, since this title does trend similar ground as it's predecessors.)

    Following the disappointing Ghosts, Advanced Warfare marks a return to form for the Call of Duty series.

    Campaign - While the majority of my time thus far has been spent in mult-iplayer, what I have played from the campaign has been enjoyable, and a clear step up from recent COD titles.
    The game looks gorgeous visually, and the character performances allow you to become immersed in what has been, for the first few hours, a coherent narrative. The "Advanced Warfare" also helps keep missions fresh, providing new toys to play with and experiences that aren't exactly identical to previous COD's. The only issue I've had thus far is with the quick time events. The prompts are so small you can miss them if you are drawn in to the action around you, which causes you to replay a section.

    Multiplayer - Fortunately this game builds off the multi-player from Black Ops2 and acts as if Ghosts never existed. This means the game has went back to the more traditional and addictive ways of unlocking items and completing challenges.
    Some new features include the ability to modify score-streaks, a pick 13 system (instead of 10) and supply drops. The supply drops could have been an issue, since they are random, if it was the only way to unlock equipment, but instead they just add to the experience since they provide new apparel and modified versions of weapons that you can receive simply be leveling up.
    The game also returns old modes while providing new as well, Uplink. Really there is something for everyone. Don't like the exo-suit? There is a classic playlist that allows you to play without it. However, that may be a mistake since the suit does open the game up and changes the dynamic of the entire experience. It provides a sense of experimentation and wonderment that has largely been absent from the series since the initial Modern Warfare.
    The main negative at the moment has been lag and connectivity issues. This can be a major problem in a game like this, but it also is the first week, so such issues are not unexpected. It is worth monitoring how this is addressed or if it stabilizes here in the near future.

    COD may not be the thinking-man's tactical first-person-shooter, but what Advanced Warfare does is bring the fun back to the series. And really, isn't that what you are looking for when you purchase and play a Call of Duty title?

    A cinematic summer blockbuster spectacular delivered in videogame form. Call of Duty Advance Warfare advances the action of the game just enough to inject something new and fun while still maintaining the familiarity of the Call of Duty franchise.

    WHAT THE GAME DOES WELL
    COD has always done a nice job of making fast paced video game action feel so gritty and realistic (Says the man whom the closest I ever came to a battlefield was one of those boring Civil War reenactments my Dad made me go to). Even in the parts of the game where you are essentially battling as or against a killer robot it maintains a certain level of realism, as weird as that sounds.

    My favorite parts of the game is when you get to play with the futuristic technology that we imagine militaries possessing someday. There really is no feeling quite like the one when you are operating weapons that will one day be designed by the brightest minds in the scientific field for the sole purpose of making it easier to kill more people faster. It does kind of make you think we are heading for a bleak and depressing future, but meanwhile in the present it makes for one hell of a video game!

    Best looking game I’ve played so far on Xbox One. The motion capture looks awesome and if they could only make the facial expressions feel a little less stiff, it would look pretty close to the real deal. I also know that this statement will make me look stupid in not too many years from now as the graphics keep improving to the point where we will basically be looking at a real human someday.

    Advanced warfare is another great example of where it is better to have the campaign be short and compelling rather than adding in hours of filler gameplay just for the sake of getting a longer game. Each of Advance Warfare’s level are well thought out and add something to a very enjoyable and exciting action movie-esque story.

    WHAT THE GAME DOES EVEN BETTER
    Kevin Spacey is an American Treasure that gives a great performance in this game solely because he is incapable of not giving great performances. He is very much prone to overacting (which is pretty much the only kind of acting he does these days), but Kevin Spacey overacting is still an achievement that must be experienced at all times and in all forms. I want to see him continue to be motioned captured into even more video games, even when it doesn’t make sense.

    WHAT THE GAME COULD HAVE IMPROVED
    I was kind of hoping for better and more exciting gameplay. By no means is the gameplay dull or limited, but Titanfall has just done the futuristic warfare angle better so far. Titanfall made me feel more like an innovative and unstoppable killing machine then I got from this game. COD will just have to settle for second place this year in that specific category.

    Call Of Duty multiplayer and I just do not get along. I’m not that good at multiplayer in general, as I would describe my overall ability as “average.” With COD though I would say my abilities would be better classified as “I suck.” It seems like whenever I start playing it usually ends with people I don’t know complaining about how I’m repeatedly holding the team back. Since I don’t (usually) like getting ridiculed by strangers on-line, I don’t end up getting that much replay value with COD games.

    OVERALL
    As someone that pretty much plays Call of Duty for the campaign and just dabbles with the multiplayer I’m not really getting into the full Advance Warfare experience. However, just the campaign is enough reason to play the game, because even though it is short, it is still very well done. I ended up playing through the campaign twice, so even without getting into multiplayer I still feel like I got my money’s worth.

    Advanced warfare however, seems like a breath of fresh air. The whole Exo abilities online adds a whole new dimension to the game, you don't just worry about people coming around corners. You have to worry about whats coming from above. The exo abilities makes online fast paced and so far from my experiences, has really cut out a lot of camping because it is near enough impossible.
    If you prefer the old style online without exo abilities, there are classic playlists just for you.

    I've only played a few missions of the campaign, but I have already been blown away by the quality of it. The amount of detail in game and in cut scenes really pulls you into the story. Its not a campaign where you play a few missions and think meh I'm going to go play online instead. It's a campaign that actually makes you want to play it.

The campaign has been dubbed as one of the best, which, I, Still haven't got round to playing due to all the multiplayer action I'm enjoying. Everything about the game is right. I love that feeling when you get a supply drop and feel like a total boss if you bag something pretty boastful. The multiplayer has to be one of the best It's ever been. The gameplay and graphics are outstanding, and the game runs so fluid.. It's beautiful. It really is a true next gen shooter and I'm really excited to see what Sledgehammer can do to now improve on this even more. I have a few negatives such as kill cams. I feel this is a problem every year and even though its been improved a little, I always sometimes wondering how has that guy killed me even though I'm behind cover?! My only other fault is the frustration when you shoot someone first and then out of nowhere (No RKO pun intended) he just kills you. If sledgehammer could get those faults, or at least kill cams correct, Call of duty is only going to get better and better. This years there is really good competition between Battlefield Hardline and Call of duty: Advanced warfare. In theory you won't be getitng bored when it comes to FPS game, that's for sure Expand

    superior to the previous 'Ghosts' (which doesn't take a lot) this is a very fun Call of Duty and my personal favorite since Black Ops. We get a fun story to play, innovated multiplayer and a cool new exo-survival game mode. But it's Keven Spacey that really makes this game what it is.

    To all the players that think Call of Duty has gotten old, I encourage you to play this game.

The multiplayer is fantastic, with the speed of the gameplay increased and the level of fun increased as well. AS of writing this review there is some balancing needed to be done on the weapons, namely the smgs, but all in all it is a great experience. The co-op is the one downfall of the game, it isn't original, and most of the time it gets boring. As of writing this review the zombie co-op mode has not been released yet, but I am hopeful for the future. I have put nearly 25 hours into the game and I love it! I suggest playing it before buying it, but I know it won't be disappointing. Expand

    the multiplayer is my favorite.using the new exo to kill everyone so quickly.just use weapons like IMR,AK12,or the BAL27 with a silencer,hybrid sight,and grip.I have improved so much and l keep getting over 20 kills with these weapons.Theres just one thing wrong though,WHERES THE FAST MAG.i mean come on,what kind of call of duty does not let u reload faster.And l know they put the dual magthe multiplayer is my favorite.using the new exo to kill everyone so quickly.just use weapons like IMR,AK12,or the BAL27 with a silencer,hybrid sight,and grip.I have improved so much and l keep getting over 20 kills with these weapons.Theres just one thing wrong though,WHERES THE FAST MAG.i mean come on,what kind of call of duty does not let u reload faster.And l know they put the dual mag in it but its not for every weapon, nice try copying treyarch, sledgehammer.

    Classic 'Call of Duty' with a dash of Halo: Reach and a pinch of Titanfall. First off: the classic Call of Duty fans should know that this game does include a 'classic' playlist online which excludes any of the new exo abilities, that being said, I think this game keeps a nice balance of old and new to keep a good median of the fans pleased.

First off: the classic Call of Duty fans should know that this game does include a 'classic' playlist online which excludes any of the new exo abilities, that being said, I think this game keeps a nice balance of old and new to keep a good median of the fans pleased. Like any other Call of Duty game, yes, it does feel like that same thing that we get year after year with not a lot of new things being brought to the table. The game does bring the use of the 'exo suits' in which give the game that feeling of Titanfall pilot play being able to double jump and turn invisible. At first the gun selection felt very weak, but once you realize that you earn different and better variations of each gun as you progress adds a new sense of accomplishment and loot. Other than the addition of the exo suits (which give you the ability to double jump, hover, and a number of other futuristic abilities) it really is the same old Call of Duty. The fact that they brought back my personally loved 'Infection' mode was a huge plus being it's been absent since Modern Warfare 3. I think most multiplayer fans will be happy since they have playlists to suit just about everyone's wants, plus it brings back the fun of custom emblems that I know I missed the most when Ghosts was launched. As far as the story goes, I can say this is the first campaign in the Call of Duty series that I got into really easily and I think it really is mostly because of the character they built for Kevin Spacey. It really does have the same linear missions that they always have been, but Spacey does bring that cinematic feel to it that makes it feel like something other than the same old predicable story lines these games have always been. In all; the game is what it is, just another entry in the Call of Duty lineup that will never end, but it did change it up enough from those before it to make it fun again without feeling like you are just playing the same game from last year. These games always lack real variety, but really, when all you are doing is: spawning, shooting, dying and repeating there isn't a lot of variety to be had but at least it's different enough from those before it that it does make it fun again. I know for a lot of people these games are guilty pleasures because you don't want people to know that all you do is play the same 8 maps over and over killing mouthy 12 year old boys, well, this latest entry really is guilty pleasure worth even though not a lot has really changed over the span of the past 5 entries. So, a hit in points because it's the same old thing, but still a high score for bringing future to the table without making it a 'Halo' game with spaceships, lasers and aliens... oh wait, they do have lasers. What most people need to understand is that it's not the game itself that makes the online play for most people enjoyable, but more the people playing it who take the time to find ways to exploit and even cheat by controlling your spawn points and camping them out; those people will always be around to ruin the fun of those that are just playing to have a good time.

    I think this game is amazing. It uses the next gen to the max, and the exo suits are amazing. I love jumping around the map, and when I play with my friends, they love it. I can't wait for DLC. Thanks Sledgehammer games! I don't get why people hate on this game so much. It is actually really fun, but you have to get used to it.

    I beat the campaign on Veteran and and on my 3rd Prestige in MP. This is a great game. Actually, it is the best game in the CoD series, without a doubt. I hear many people complaining about lag, but all I can say is that even with a 5MB down/1MB up connection, I have experienced absolutely no lag unless the game was preparing to change hosts.

    I understand that this game was meant for online multiplayer gaming. That portion is fantastic and historically, the COD games have always lived up to the hype about it. It seems like they spent a whole lot of money developing the campaign, what with hiring and using Kevin Spacey's likeness, so I would have figured the campaign would have been longer and more in depth.

Cool story, but it was too short. Offline exo survival mode is sub-par. Add some more single player stuff. As much as I absolutely LOVE online PvP, sometimes it's nice to take a break and just shoot up some AI. Make that better, but this game was overall great. Expand

    If you play Call Of Duty online all year round then Christmas has officially come early. But if you’re a sucker for the ludicrous, globe-trotting, re-skinned James Bond adventures that constitute these games in single player, you’ve picked the perfect year in which to take a twelve-month break.

    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]

    In many ways, the game is the perfect distillation of the franchise's core appeal. But it's still just Call of Duty, don't expect it to revolutionize the industry. [Issue#118, p.61]
