Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Reminds Me How Much I Miss Advanced Warfare

Jamaal Ryan writes: "Sledgehammer Games disrupted the Call of Duty franchise with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare back in 2014. As a series that has largely seen incremental improvements and, at times, odd detours within its highly established framework, Advance Warfare was precisely the shot in the arm that Call of Duty needed. An inarguably more focused story in its single player and more robust customization options in online play were certainly welcome changes to the franchise, but the introduction of the exosuit made Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare the best multiplayer instalment in the franchise since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare."

You're in the minority, buddy.

Not really. Advanced Warfare was great, and it was finally different for once. Sledgehammer brought actual change and fresh ideas to the COD formula. The exosuit could have been better implemented, yeah, but it was still a great addition. You can say what you want, but it won't change the fact that millions of people enjoyed and loved Advanced Warfare.

advanced warfare was the second most worst call of duty behind ghosts. it was flat out terrible the exo suits just ruined the gameplay thats not what call of duty was meant for

WellyUK919d ago

AW was complete tripe...

HammadTheBeast919d ago (Edited 919d ago )

I'd say it's MW, MW2, Black Ops, WaW, Black Ops 2, then Advanced Warfare, then the mess that was MW3.

Not even gonna include Ghosts.

What the hell was different? The ExoSuits? Don't be so damn naive.

Call of Duty is and has been the same for the past years. Add a weapon or two, but its the exact same crap, all you do is jump higher and strafe left and right quicker.

The single player portions are still amazing, but CoD will never change. Year after year, same foundation, new coat of paint.

Advanced Warfare is the worst in the series. Before Ghost was the worst but Advanced Warfare was actually able to beat out Ghosts because it is the most laggy COD experience to date. At least Ghost had a stable frame-rate and almost no lag. AW introduced the pay to win idea and one of the most unbalanced experiences so far with elite weapons that are rare as hell to get unless you waste your life or buy them. Anyone who thinks Advanced Warfare is even remotely good must be a noob new to gaming or on some major drug. BO3 is so much better in so many ways and most importantly frame-rate.

Another note is that the exo suits in AW break what made COD so great. It creates so many blind spots when you use the ability it's trash. Also the story mode which sold me the game was horrible and cliche too.

LonDonE919d ago (Edited 919d ago )

No way, ghosts on ps4 to this day has the frame rate problems!
its by far the worst cod, aw was actually ok and yes it had lag at launch, but so has every cod.
But they fixed it for most pretty quickly, it has good maps and in my opinion has the best graphics for a cod game, and even looks better graphically then blops 3!!

Its actually my prefered cod at the moment, sledge hammer done well vs the left overs of infinity ward!
The classic mode is also pretty awesome, sadly no one plays it.

DragoonsScaleLegends919d ago (Edited 919d ago )


You must fall into the the second category I listed above for people who like this trash. The lag is worse than every CoD before it and no its not been fixed, even the menu is laggy. Also to me BO3 looked better graphically and was very smooth.

Well said bro. AW is garbage.

FITgamer919d ago

Agreed. I hated Advanced Warfare, got rid of that one quick. So did the majority of people i played with. I only have a couple of friends who still play it. The rest went back to Ghosts or are playing something else.

The only problems I had with AW, we're the lazer guns and killstreaks.
Needed more guns with actual bullets
Killstreaks got really boring, should have added new one's.

I especially hated different varitations of the guns
Would have pefered new one's.

Exo suits are awful go eat more doritos and drink more dew a.d.d. child

Get_A_Job_Foxtrot919d ago

Wow really? I believe the doritos analogy was applicable to COD far before AW was even in production. So trying new ideas is what makes it childlike and dorito-king worthy?

No wonder this franchise gets worse every year with narrow minded fans like you. Same crap year after year. Don't even need a new engine...
