MWEB GameZone's Holden ZA takes a deeper look at Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and unveils 3 reasons why it might break the traditional Call of Duty stereotype.
Great read, I agree with those three points but COD has been so bad for me as of late I still have doubts.
interesting take son
Good read, I will hold back on saying CODAW will break the franchise mold, learned my lesson with Ghosts. I do however disagree on what the write says abt Spacey - IMO his talent as an actor will surely bring a new std to the franchise
I think after Ghosts people are going to be sceptical of a title that is not produced by Treyarch. Lets see if Sledgehammer as the "new kid on the block" can produce something that puts the "WOW" back into COD, or at the very least caters properly for competitve mode...Theatre mode needs to be there, please :)
Completely agree with the fact the Sledgehammer needs to impress with this title. I think, from what we have seen in these early stages, is the they are ready to be more innovative than their predecessors. Hopefully, COD AW can be the title that brings back that much needed WOW factor.
I will problably stick with the Killzone franchise for my shooter fix... but better A.I., realistic weapon feel, true digital(non-compressed) 7.1 audiuo, true next gen graphics, innovative online with free dlc would get my attention.
There are a lot of other good FPS we can jam. I think a lot of gamers will echo your sentiment "I will problably stick with.."
If it plays like Killzone for the 360 and XBO, why not?
Every CoD title from Cod4 onwards has been a repeat with mostly crap after crap after rubbish after no real development - barring elements from Treyarch, but still. They had better do something decent and proper rather than simply tacking on new levels and some gun mechanics and dogs onto what is essentially a 7-year old game - 9 if you count Call of Duty 2. IW set the bar beautifully back in 2007 with CoD 4, with a great mix of modability, game innovations and much, much more. Even though i became jaded by the time Back Ops 2 came out, its E-Sports components where tip-top - and then you get this barf-bag of a game called Ghosts coming out. They'd better do something spectacular - and NOT F#$%$#$ing DOGS AGAIN!
I hope these additions aren't just superficial. I think its about time the series took some risks.
