COD: Advanced Warfare Touted "Best Game of Our Lives" By Schofield; A Lot Of Polish Added Recently

Sledgehammer's Glen Schofield thinks Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the best game they ever made, and praised the team for refining the game a lot in the last few weeks. (Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Glen Schofield, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

I know they're working hard, but I just really can't get excited by new Call of Duty games, even when they try something new...
Alexious  +   267d ago
I used to think like that, but I have a feel this is going to be different. Hopefully

Just hate where COD has gone over the years. Since CoD4:Modern Warfare everything has gotten so damn ambitious with the developer (under pressure ofcourse) having to try find a new twist everytime with the game.
It used to be a fun military shooter, with some really well thought out geometric map.
Now I have the feeling the creator has to be like; "lets turn this map into a theme park!", "this map is a football stadium!", or "this can be a lazer-tag area!".

Wish they could just go back and really plan out maps again, instead of just dropping props on a field.

And while im at it. Go back to just a few meaningful perks and killstreaks (3 is enough!). The game has lost all it's competitiveness in favor of all the crap customization. Everyone's got a different f*n banner or logo or flag or whatever, but it really doesn't mean sh*t anymore...

...of THEIR lifes which might be something exciting for COD fans, not for console gamers

I don't know how I feel about the exo's to be honest. I always thought cod was good because it was a basic military shooter. I am happy they are trying something new but I feel it might turn on them. A lot of competitive eSports/MLG players have stated they do not like the exo suits in the game and that they might be taken out of competitive play, that is very concerning.

I do feel as there will be a huge skill gap in this game compared to other Cods however. You will see players who are very good than a lot that are very bad. Another problem I see is that you will see a lot of rooftop camping instead of fighting on the ground in Deathmatch type game modes.

My other concern is the exo abilities (shild, stim, etc..) I think they might be very overpowered when used correctly. Also I don't like that each gun has something special about it (extra damage in first couple rounds, etc..) I think they should just have the gun stats and not add extra perks to the guns, because it will make one or two guns vastly superior to all the others, like we saw in Cod Ghosts (Remmington R5 and Vector).

I am willing to give the game a shot but I have no expectations with this game at all because I am basically done with Cod, if this idea of change doesn't workout the series is completely doomed

eSports doesn't pay Ac5ivision's bills--customers do. And from the sales of Ghosts, it's clear that COD is stale. It needs something new. If current COD esports players are too scared, than they will find new players.

Funny seeing how a lot of pro players I follow that actually win tournaments are excited about gameplay idk who you are talking about. Only thing that I've seen hate about was no dead silence. Exo abilities last very few seconds. AW has over 300 guns 10 variations of each gun. I doubt that we will run into the same situation as Ghosts. I respect your opinion but I'm clarifying a few thing for you.
EvilWay  +   267d ago
Yea which is why they are thinking about disabling exos from eSports right?
Brix90  +   267d ago
Banning Exos suits won't fix the Dead Silence problem
CloudRap  +   267d ago
Every gun in Ghost was Overpowered and over accurate not just the R5 and Vector.
kaiserfranz  +   267d ago
Let's hope this is more than just the usual hype, I need a new shooter!
Exies7  +   267d ago
Get Destiny, it looks amazing. Unless you're not into scifi shooters, then you may wanna stay clear.
Exies7  +   267d ago
Yea, okay. Best game, my ass. I didn't even like TLOU, but it was leaps and bounds above any other COD game that has released. Call of Duty is a cash cow formula, and the only reason it's making such new changes are because of the several solid FPS games that have released or are releasing soon.

Don't get me wrong. If you love COD, fine, I'm happy people enjoy it. But come on,...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the best game Sledgehammer ever made. Not the best game ever made.
Exies7  +   267d ago
Well, then. I guess I'm just a fool who should have actually read the article. `-`
Alexious  +   267d ago
Yes, that's the idea.
EvilWay  +   267d ago
Isn't it the only game they ever made?
Rimgal  +   267d ago
Don't worry, you didn't missed out that much, by not reading the article.
brewskiebob  +   267d ago
I grew up on quake and unreal tournament so this cod is right up my alley. I just hope its well balanced

Call of Duty will just be roughly the same game with a new lick of paint..that's all. The only difference will be the new set of lies the studio comes up with to make it seem different.

That doesn't say much.

Same guy made the same comments about MW3, which was the worse one in the whole series lol
Brix90  +   267d ago
Ghost was the worst in the series...MW3 is right under it
sikandar201  +   267d ago
I'm looking forward to this game! It really looks amazing.
tlougotg  +   267d ago
That really doesnt say much, however i have a good feeling about this COD. I havent bought a COD since black ops due to the regurgitation and stagnation but ill be back on board for this one.
DJ  +   267d ago
But the E3 demo looked so boring...

After wasting my money on Ghosts, I might just wait a couple of day to get some feedback from the internet. I always played CoD, since 2001 (was it?), it would be sad if they screw this one either.
Summons75  +   267d ago
Alright calm the Ego down. Say its the best game in Call of Duty's life and not the entire game industry. cOD will never live up to games like TLOU, Uncharted 2, Demon's Souls. It's a mediocre poorly made game and it always will your just making it marginally less so than other cod games.
HaleHankock  +   267d ago
If they didn't fix online lag, I won't play this game. The last 3 CODs have had terrible lag that made online play unfair and have nearly ruined me for the series
Saryk  +   267d ago
Bring it! If it is good, we will buy!
Minute Man 721  +   267d ago
The last good one was MW2
paul-p1988  +   266d ago
I hate CoD and FPS games, have for years thanks to oversaturation in the market, but I am truly excited about this one! Although most of that excitement is because it reminds me of Unreal Tournament, but this will be the first CoD game I buy :)

its on par with KZ SF
