Looks Like Advanced Warfare Is The Call Of Duty We Wanted

Last year's Ghosts was a disappointment. Most will agree.

As a consequence, this year's franchise entry had a lot riding on it: Could it restore some of that epic greatness we first encountered with the original Modern Warfare?

Well, going by the critic response thus far, it seems the answer is a resounding "yes." The Metacritic average sits at 83 for the PlayStation 4 version, although it's interesting to note that the user average is only a 5.7. There are plenty of CoD haters in the world, though, so it's probably not even worth mentioning. Most of the user reviews with super low scores are basically unreadable, which tells us something.

At any rate, with five 9+ scores already (including the 9.1 from IGN) and 14 8+ scores counted, the game is off to a great start. Most reviewers are saying this is exactly what they've always wanted from Call of Duty: Pulse-pounding FPS action and fantastic multiplayer. There was never any reason to completely change the genre or do anything drastic; they just had to infuse freshness into the ailing series, that's all. And it appears as if new developer Sledgehammer Games has succeeded.

Our review is coming very soon but in the meantime, are you happy with what you've been reading around the 'Net?

I haven't payed much attention to this series in a very long time, but I'll admit that what I've seen so far looks like it will be a lot of fun. This may end up being the first CoD game in years that I actually purchase.

Me too actually. While I haven't been a fan of CoD being the cause of the flood of FPS's in the previous gen, I still respect the ambition of this game. The near-futuristic setting is fascinating and and the war aspect is quite intimidating. I'm curious to see if the story will explore such dangerous issues rather than becoming the numbing shoot fest most are expecting. Say what you want about CoD, but it doesn't lack in spectacle, I'm genuinely interested to see where they take it.

I wonder if the Exo-Skeleton is going to be a must for future COD's. I mean if I had to guess next year we are probably going to be getting World at War II, so how would that work? Lol

That's an interesting notion, I wonder with TitanFall and Advanced Warefare if this step towards utilizing future tech in games will make future games with an older setting seem plain... May CoD is getting pigeon holed with this one.

I'm actually missing WWII shooters now, imagine what storming the Normandy beaches on D-Day would look like on the new consoles, or parachuting over Normandy, or how detailed they could make a besieged Stalingrad look. Hopefully someone makes a new WWII shooter soon.

I've been having fun, but there's a couple of thinng that bother me:

1. The double jump makes the game a jumping fest. Therefore killing team play.

2. That frickin' sniper super scope shoot like any weapon and getting an instant kill. It doesn't matter the distance, snipers get kills close, middle and long range. Hope Sledgehammer fix this

They still have the quick scope fail in there? It's a result of the auto-aim feature that snaps to enemies when you aim. It should be turned off for snipers. Don't know why they can't fix it. It's been going on for over half a decade now.

I won't be getting it until next week but I'm certainly excited about this one. Havnt felt that way for the past few. After W@W I really felt like Trey arch is what was hurting the franchise with their lackluster attempts at re-creating MW.

Good to hear. I'm not interested in actually reading the reviews though. I know what I'm in for.

World At War is one of the best WWII shooters out there in my opinion, the only problem was that it came out a year after MW and people were tired with WWII shooters and just wanted more MW.

Yep you are right. And that's when the series started going down hill. Trey arch felt like they needed to create something more "modern" to keep up. What they created were lackluster attempts at a modern game that took place in the cold war etc... they felt like a stretch. And the series became stale.

From what I saw on the stream its the same crappy physics having, boring, bland, generic, over-hyped, overrated, stiff and mediocre game it has been since Modern Warfare.Let's be honest,COD is pure trash and only get's by on the popularity of MP in today's gaming.

Wow I got so many thumbs down just by saying that I'm ignoring CoD, that it struck me how many retarded fanboys of this game are here who will just rage if anything wrong is spoken about "their" game.
Not that I care about thumbs up/down or opinion itself as a matter of fact, but it's just so hilarious.

EDIT: just saw Darth Nemesis comment downvoted to the ground and it just proves my theory, rotfl. And people thinking CoD will die. Not with the army like this.

Same could be said about the anti-COD guys on this article, based on the down votes of the first post. That brings me back to something i touched on last week, why bother commenting on a COD article if whoever thinks it's trash never liked it?

The COD hate on this site is ultra prevalent. And guys like darth nemesis is entitled to their opinion, but calling the game and/or series trash is crazy. Its not like its a broken game or hasn't had millions of dollars pumped into it.

Just because darth nemesis and 95% of other members don't like it and want it to fail (which is just plain hate) is beyond me. What's wrong with twitch gameplay?

If you notice my comment was mostly positive and I still received a ton of downvotes. Don't look too much into them because they mean nothing.

I can tell you from my experience though there are more people around here that wish CoD would go away than stay.

I think I know why most members here hate COD. Is it because they basically never change the winning formula they have in place because millions love it the way it fundamentally is, or because their favorite developers and genres tried to emulate COD to the point where games like final fantasy and Resident Evil have become shadows of their former selves?

In any case, maybe you should take issue with the said developers who think that copying another formula for success and alienating the previous fanbase, instead of hating on COD. Its not like IW, Treyarch or the new developers told them to try and copy them.

And why drastically change something every year when the majority of consumers like your product the way it is? Thats what most of you wanted Squeenix to do, right? Look what changing the formula does...they wanted to sell COD levels, which is absurd on every level.

And just when COD fans complaints about stagnation reached an all-time high, they did what needed to be done and injected new life into the series. Exo suit, new game engine and more.

And i realize after all that said, some people really don't like the game, which of course is fine, but why even comment on something you aren't interested in? Expecially if all you do is lob insults at those who do enjoy it. Just like some guys say "it seems like people play COD because its the cool thing to do", seems like its the "cool" thing around here to hate on it.

I dont play racers because I feel like they are ALL repetitive and pretty much all the same, but you don't see me commenting on any threads either.

"but why even comment on something you aren't interested in?"

* Because they want others to know that they don't like COD? Is it selfish? Perhaps but people don't care how they come across even moreso on the internet.

"I dont play racers because I feel like they are ALL repetitive and pretty much all the same, but you don't see me commenting on any threads either."

That is something you decide to do. Some people cannot hold their opinions inside especially if they feel strong about it. I don't like the COD franchise for my own reasons but what people don't realize it's the fact that their hate does not mean it's bad game. Their hate just means the game is not for them.

Don't know why people complicate their lives when life can be so simple. Just don't buy the game. Don't hate others that buy the game -- they're not spending your money.

That's basically the same way I feel about it all, Wizard.
