NowGamer: "We consider the extent to which the cynicism around Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is justified, asking whether the series cares about its own themes."
Interesting really. Most think it's just the yearly cycle that makes it cynical, never really thought about the topics it uses in each game to be cynical either.
This new one seems to have a large political theme to it. Seems to poke at real world politics. Interesting to say the least.
Nowgamer shouldn't even be considered a reputable game site. They are terrible at reviews and have clickbait articles. For example, in their Killzone Mercenary review, the reviewer actually complained about the main characters NAME for christ sakes. After getting lambasted in the comment sections of their reviews, they got rid of the comment section. Soo no-one could voice their opinions.
Cynical? Call of Duty has glorified war for at least five years now.
Not to mention glorifying cigars.
I dont think the writer knows what Cynicism means.
It's a new engine too, IDtech 3.5. :)
Waiting for black ops 3
