'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' met with skepticism

The unveiling of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has dominated the gaming media over the weekend with speculations of a new direction along with some doubt that it could save the series. (Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Culture, Dev, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Looks like not everyone is getting on the COD bandwagon so fast. Its going to put a lot of pressure on Sledgehammer to not mess up.

U cant blame ppl...not after ghosts! And now that next gen has surfaced, we definitely expect more.

It looks promising but we will see. Competition will be fierce.

Thanks to GTAV, I hope the competition will be fierce.

This is what needs fixing in COD before I buy it again;

1)Lagg (yes that a big problem when online can mean the difference between a kill or death)
2)Very poor hit detection (at times you can hit some one around a corner)
3)Over the top aim-assist (just look at qs etc and see how over the top it is)
4)Quick scoping (ruins the game) (snipers are meant for long range)
5)No-scoping (ruins the game) (snipers are ment for long range)
6)The knife being the most powerful weapon on the game,( I didn't know getting swiped across the foot can kill you)
7)Small boring maps (time for some new maps)
8)6V6 game modes (time for more players in game modes)
9)There needs to be tanks, (they where in WAW so why not anymore),
10)Stupid perks like commando, unlimited sprint etc, (I didn't know you could sprint for a unlimited time or that you could extend you melee attack)
11) 80% of the weapons would of been in previous COD's (time for some new weapons or least more variety),
12) Still not being able to see your body or legs when looking down (you could see your legs in the first Halo) (and what the point of customization if you can't see it)
13) A new game engine (yes it's time for a new engine)
14) reduce the range you can throw c4 (it might as well be classed as a grenade how far you can throw it at the moment)
15) Dynamic destruction (this would bring a whole new way how COD is played and reduce the number of campers etc)
16) Actually ban the cheaters and hackers (I sick and fed up with cheaters ad hackers ruining the game for everyone else because they have no skill of there own)

I thought that trailer was amazing. The futuristic elements mixed with an evil Kevin Spacey, what is there not to like : ). It looked rather epic! I can see why people are skeptical based on Ghosts, but from what they showed it looks like the game is definitely getting a lot of new gameplay elements. I am excited to play.

Meh... like any COD fan care about story mode + don't be that naive in story wise it will be only 6 hours at max + isn't Ghosts written by Oscar's winner? and all praised that it will be going to be sick look what happened. dunno why people make all the fuzz about this trailer. COD trailer always get big praise but after the game comes out u see tons of people complaining about the game and how much it sucks. oh well some people just go with the flow.

And BTW the graphics in the trailer is not that good with this texture and character jaggies(just look at 0:27 it looks ugly) dunno why people call it next gen game.

I've bought every cod since number one with story in mind and ghosts was the worst out of them all and the longest out of them all, a bit less than 10 hours for me.

Don't be naive yourself.

Also, name one new gen game without 'jaggies.'

there's a difference between having normal jaggies. and having really ugly jaggies that looks like triangle.
you really suck at cod if you put more than 8 hours at the single player. hell even my brother he is 10 years old finished it in 6 hours.

It looks exactly like Ghosts, but with a new futuristic setting. It's got lots of scripted elements, and evrything is nailed to the floor. No interactivity. Not sure why everyone is so fascinated with Kevin Spacey, either...
Immorals  +   151d ago
I give every CoD a chance, as I really enjoyed them up until mw2. But this one just looks awful, it's an overused plot, the graphics are alright, but if you're going to bring in a top actor like Kevin Spacey, at least make sure your facial animations don't look like a damned furby!

Also, all the nanotechnology etc is just gonna effect the multiplayer. Expect huge imbalances.

Honestly with the way COD has been going if don't have any skepticism then you're already lost. It was the hype trailer of the single player. The part a good portion of COD players don't even finish. At angles you won't even see, I'm not saying it is going to be a bad game but I don't understand how you can be sold on it at this point

I havent touched this series in years. It's lame 'broseph' and hollywood moments been totally played out. I would like to play/enjoy it once more so I hope they dont mess it up, but that's a tall order.
DefenderOfDoom2  +   151d ago
They put expensive cut scenes in the campaign so they can also use them in trailers to try to trick consumers that this game is cutting edge!
tigertron  +   151d ago
I thought the trailer looked really good and this is coming from a COD hater.

That being said, I was disappointed to learn that this is a cross-gen game. I would have preferred it to have been current-gen only.
Give_me_head_strong  +   150d ago
Of course it looks good, it's only scripted cut scenes with zero gameplay. How much do you want to bet that the retail version will look exactly like Ghosts, albeit in a futuristic setting? There will be very little post processed effects, and I doubt the current gen versions will even have per object motion blur...
famoussasjohn  +   150d ago
While it is a cross-gen game, Sledgehammer is developing the game on next gen, or since they are out now..current gen consoles. The previous generation consoles are getting 3rd party treatment from another developer. It only makes sense as a business stand point to release for all consoles that are out now (excluding Wii-U since there are no plans for it being released on that platform.) PS4 and Xbox One aren't going to bring them the most money, especially since last gen has a much larger base of players.
stanr  +   150d ago
Its not just single player that is being met with skepticism but also multiplayer. Ghosts multiplayer was very very bland compared to previous games and offered nothing unique while most of the maps were crap.
Wishing they would make a return to WW2, i hated modern warfare, ghosts and now i hate this, futuristic warfare already done in (Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter). i would love to see WW2 with the visuals now available!
