Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is a 2014 first-person shooter video game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision.
Awesome. We truly do live in a wonderful age and I know this is live action but the CGI is really on point. This translates to the game in epic proportions, the opening cutscene of the first level was jaw-dropping to me. It was so uncanny how accurate the CGI was I became scared, scared of our future where the lines between reality and surreality are so blurred we are lost. Back to topic, first impressions were evidently positive for me. More importantly however, that impression sank permanently into my veins like a tattoo, and a tattoo I gladly kept. Contrary to popular belief of parents and ‘cool’ people, this IS art. Graphics aside, the single player was very enjoyable and highly polished. There were some pretty cool parts in the game (without revealing spoilers if you are crazy enough to have not played it yet). That being said, there were some missed chances of more awesomeness. I found myself thinking sometimes ‘they should have totally done this/not done that’. The ending was satisfactory but slightly disappointing.
Now it’s time…*deep breaths*… it’s time to delve into the cruel world of multiplayer.
Fast paced, innovative, laggy, challenging, LAGGY, but a breath of fresh air for the veteran players……………………………..sorry, the sheer thought of how laggy this game is made my keyboard lag *PC shudders* 0_0. Technical issues noted, the quality shines through and still has me hooked either going 3-37 or 43-8. When I first jumped into multiplyer I got that elusive rush of excitement that I once knew; it took me back to when I passed my GCSEs and was rewarded with a PS3 and CoD4. My joy for this franchise had returned, even now the honeymoon period is probably over (I can’t tell), I am still loving this game. The multiplayer community is still terrible, and hipsters still begrudgingly criticise this game consistently each year; let’s face it, they suck at it and are just throwing their toys out of the pram like the sore-losing hypocrites they are. Wow, I’ve been exposed to the CoD community for too long, it’s taking hold of me! Noo! BRB, gonna play ORAS to redeem myself.
GG Activision, GG.
