Even if you're a staunch hater of Call of Duty, you have to admit that Advanced Warfare isn't a bad game. In fact, it's a big step in the right direction.
Not really It's just got a new lick of paint and the fact it's the first full on next gen COD game. Then there's Kevin Spacey... At it's core it's still the same old COD formula they've been doing for years.
I think them trying really anything new is a good thing. Its really about time they added something new to the formula. The gun balancing is a lot better than the last 3 games (IMO anyways). Fun game, but with GTAV having First Person im not planning on buying any other games any time soon.
dude... its BLOPS 2 with Titanfall's DBL jumps and boost strafes... The maps are still too small, the guns still have no recoil, to many headglitching spots, no teamwork even REMOTELY necessary... so no it aint that good.. its any BLOPS 2 with DBL jumps.. but because that CoD fanboy site IGN said it was, then it must be on the level of the second coming of Christ
Love it, great game play, graphics and changes... BUT the same old servers, and hit detection. I was like playing the same game. Yup and the maps blow. Too small and felt like I was stuck in a Hamster Cage.
I agree. From inconsistent visual quality, the SAME OLD mp but with some added Exo suit goodness, same B.S hit detection, HORRID spawns, meh map design, its just not as good as I was hoping it would be. Its decent, but not billion dollar franchise decent.
If you really think it's just new paint, you are blind. The core of any franchise stays the same, but the changes made to the elements surrounding advanced warfare have completely changed how it plays. Its pretty obvious you don't play it so your opinion holds no weight.
yes, the double jumping isn't just a new traversal technique, it completely changes how to play the game... anybody who thought they were good at the old CoD will need to change up their strategies for this one!
My question is: have you actually played it??? My guess is no because you wouldn't have posted that ignorant comment. I was an avid cod hater for years. A literal "break the disc in half" cod hater (ghosts). This one is something special and I can't stop playing it. Try the fucking thing before trolling... I meant commenting
I have played it and it is an addon for BL2, there could be more weapons to choose from, they could of also added new weapons and perks instead of taking a lot from previous CODs. Still can't see your body or legs when you look down (i want to feel like a person when running around, not a floating camera) the maps still could be better (like COD4 or WAW better) they should also add dynamic destruction.
@Matt666 not enough new perks? cause you did see each killstreak has add ons (basically perks) now right? and your exo abilities are basically perks you can activate. sorry you cant see your feet. i guess thats a deal breaker for you lol! while i do agree there could be more weapons, the weapons they included are pretty fresh, and each one ive tried are completely unique from the others in its class... not to mention the pro upgraded versions you can get outta drops. that in itself is pretty awesome! plus, the customization is freaking AWESOME! my dude looks completely pimp!
@ShowGun901 They say they improved there graphics but when you look down you can't even see yourself. And yes a lot of the perks are from previous CODs. It is repetitive within places. Yes there are some improvements here and there but not enough to make it the best COD ever.
It wouldn't be the same franchise if it wasn't. The new Assassin's Creed has you assassinating people too, would you like that taken out so it can feel different. It's a sequel, not a new IP, to moan about it beimg similar to the others makes no sense.
Newest feeling COD game since COD:MW for me. It's a lot of fun. If their next game 3 years from now is anything like this I'd hope they make it just a slightly slower pace than this, but overall it's a really good FPS game.
I'll just leave this right here.. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It's all an opinion. I know many people who love it, and have said it's the best MP experience for CoD in a long while. Though I also know plenty of people who think it's kind of meh. So it's opinion, which this article is posting as fact.
Haven't played to comment but watching streams I see the 360 no scope is still going strong (at least on PC version I watched).
I've maybe seen it once during actual gameplay. Keep in mind those gameplay videos are from hours upon hours of play. When he finally pulls it off, he's like YES! It's really enjoyable man, I strongly recommend picking it up.
I hope they put more effort into the single player from now on, used to be best part of the series, but this games single player seems pretty good. Just not into the multiplayer anymore got tired of the formula, esp non sportsman like players that would just camp or do trickshots with sniper rifles. I think alot of the animosity people feel toward the COD series would lessen, if they also included a lengthy and story driven campaign like they used to. Or atleast make a seperate game with the COD name all single player that takes longer to develop, but is of higher quality and leave multiplayer seperate, they could take on a medal of honor gap and take in single player only people and the multiplayer casuals. http://oi62.tinypic.com/dm7...
Multiplayer is Ghosts with a different coat of paint.
Funny you say that. I was watching streams over the weekend and people thought it was ghost dlc the guy was playing.
Lol disagree all you want the streamer had to keep telling people it was the new COD.
All the double jumping got people confusing it with Ghosts?
I mean, just going to throw it out there, they were most likely trolling. Streamers have trolls too. It isn't just forums.
Not really , i'll just acknowledge that finally , after so many rehashes , theey seem to have decent graphics again and a new engine . But then again while i dislike , loathe even the franchise , i dont want it to die unlike some people . I think some of its fanbase need to be satiated with this game , instead of it spilling over other games with different concepts , and transmutating them to cater to their whims
It's really not that great. They still haven't addressed multiplayer lag, so in my opinion that's a huge fail this far into the series.
99% of people are not having lag issues. And that 1% are people with crappy net connections.
Hit detection is off, the lag is present for a lot more people than you think.
50 mbs There is bad Hit detections Is it the same client side servers? If so lag will help you. Oh and check my score screen. EVERYONE lags off and on. Its typical to all COD titles... why should this be different?
This. I don't expect them to reinvent COD to the point that it isn't recognisable, but I damn well don't consider peer 2 peer connections a critical aspect worth keeping.
I don't understand how it's next-gen when they still are doing p2p servers. Seriously? All that money and they can't give dedicated servers? They started back with dedicated servers on PC with MW3, only because sales had dropped so low, console gamers buy regardless - so they don't have to listen. Then, there's the issue of charging for pvp map packs that breaks the community up, to the point you can't find matches in most game modes past 11pm by the 2nd map pack if you don't buy in. We need more shooters to go back to the days of PC FPSes, like Shadowfall and PvZ:Garden Warfare are doing by not charging for pvp maps, so they don't segregate and ruin the longevity of the community and you can always find matches.
PvZ is underrated. Brings me back to the early team fortress days. More people should pick it up.
I'm no COD hater but I'd say that AW is pretty good game.
At least your are honest and its nothing wrong with that. On this site, its the cool thing to hate on duty yet it sell millions...oops I meant 10s of millions every year. A lot of people like this series. If we based the industry off of things said on this site then it would be a truly sad place. I'm just waiting for the BF sales to buy my games this year. What counts is that YOU like the game. Forget all the haters and bandwagoners because its your $60 not theirs. All they can do is hit the disagree button....ouch....that really stopped me from enjoying a game...haha
It is great! I am having a blast! Just wish the p2p/Dedicated servers would roll in.
I think is fun it's better then ghost and black ops 1 and 2
Whoooooa! Saying it's better than black ops 1 and 2 is going a bit overboard.
Except that it IS better then both those games.
Still lagging COD? I expect this from Battlefield 4 not COD
The servers are terrible and the lag is really bad. The gameplay itself is ultra campy. This isn't a game for rushers much like Ghosts as the time to kill is really low and there's a crap load of building in most of the maps. Also, the scorestreaks are a major letdown...or at least the early ones are. Especially the knockoff Hammer of Dawn. 600 points for that? The other major issue is the low score for TDM/Kill confirmed etc. They made it too hard to hit high streaks. Hell, all I do now is run one low streak and use the other slots for weapons.
Ghosts had the most campers ever People literally just camped with Thermal Snipers on nearly every map. That game was utter trash for people that like to run and gun
Bad hit detection and lag = Campers! There are other game play options other than Death Match. In the Lab makes some good points.
I loved COD AW. Looks beautiful, good game play. Runs at 90-120fps with max settings at 1920x1080. Sometimes drops to 60 with heavy battles. Only thing that got to me were the cut scene movies... For some reason they were laggy as hell... The audio was out of sync had crackling and pops and the video stuttered like crap. Gameplay is 100% fine, but the movies which take no effort at all, run like crap. wtf is going on? I seem to have this issue with all COD games. Do they just use a really bad bik video codec or something? Do I not have this codec? I don't get it...
The out of sync cutscenes happens to me too.
Ah, that makes me feel a bit better. so it's not just me. I wonder what the issue is? I can run full on 20gb+ 1080p blueray rips easily. But these god damn bik movies just run like crap or make my computer come to a stall. Especially when I try to FRAPS it.
At least aw had a successful launch take note ea battlefield.
The game is great.
Does PSExtreme employ 14-year old writers?
Its better than TF...????? I dont wanna waste my $$$...
This is the first CoD I've played since the first Black Ops. Starting to shake off the rust and having an absolute blast with it.
well that's prolly true. BF4's lobbies are lonely atm. I played last night and I figured out COD was the issue.
Bf4 lobbies alive and well dude
I'm having a lot of fun with AW... Definitely the change CoD needed in my opinion
Truthfully I am really loving this game so far. I have hated the last 3 or 4 COD games. Even though this is still a COD game, it does feel different because of the new move set. I was one that very much liked Titanfall. The quickness of that game was amazing and this has brought some of that over to COD. Very fast, (although not as fast as Titanfall) and addictive gameplay. Especially for a run and gunner like myself. The only thing that I am on the fence about is the new melee kill. It is very hard to melee kill unless your pretty much on top of the person. I guess this can be looked at as a good thing though. I will say that when you do melee someone, it is very satisfying though. There is a feel and sound to it that just is awesome.
This game is garbage and I live COD the lag compensation and hit detection is worse then Bops2
The only really negative I've heard this far is that COD is still P2P. The campaign is a little bit short and the story isn't much to puff about from what I hear. Technically its better and it has managed to differ itself from previous entries in the series with some design tweaks: Exo suits/powers, new modes, more routes and level verticallity. Technically its not to bad, its weird that the Ps4 version would dip as one would think it would be able to handle it even at points where the XO version sacrifices like what? 1/3 of the resolution? PC version needs SLI/crossfire support, but it sports a lot of tech and options. I would have picked it up if there hadn't been so many good looking games coming, my wallet is committed to its diet and cheat day doesn't come around as often as one would like. I have bought just a handful of games this year and I might be able to squeese one more in and it will most likely be Infamous: second son.
It's great if you're into no skill first person shooters made for children in which you can shoot beside people miss them completely and still kill them.. I'm sure most CoD fanboys will argue it's lag, when in actuality it's over sized hitboxes, because lag has 0 effect on an offline game and yes you can shoot beside people and still kill them offline. Games like CoD are clearly aimed at casuals and children, other games have went this route and that's we have so many no skill crap arcade games this-Gen.
nope waiting battlefront 3
It's excellent to play. Campaign is best yet
