Condemn O.R. Condone – Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Xbox One)

The jolt of electricity that the series needed.

Last year’s Call of Duty: Ghosts was the point in the series where the tried and true gameplay elements simply weren’t paying off anymore. Rather than introducing gamers to interesting new mechanics or an engaging story, Infinity Ward turned in a game that completely was forgettable on many accounts. However, Sledgehammer Games have been cooking up their own Call of Duty game that looks to be the series’ first major shift since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The results of their first fully-fledged Call of Duty game doesn’t flip the series on its head, but it shakes enough things up to pull back in disenchanted gamers.

Sledgehammer Games’ major addition to the series is a focus on futuristic tech. Gamers will play through the game equipped with an Exo Suit, which transforms a normal soldier into a super soldier. This greatly increases the speed of gameplay, as you can jump higher and dash quicker than ever before. There are other little bells and whistles like grenades that home in on enemies and ripping off car doors and throwing them at unsuspecting foes, which all culminates into making you feel like a total bad ass in both singleplayer and multiplayer.

While most singleplayer campaigns in the series can be categorized as practices in incoherent bombast, Advanced Warfare attempts to make things more engaging by putting in Kevin Spacey as Jonathan Irons. Your character Jack Mitchell (voiced by Troy Baker) was best friends with Irons’ son, and after an unfortunate incident that kills Irons’ son and costs Mitchell an arm, Irons offers you another chance to fight the good fight in his private military corporation called Atlas. Thanks to Atlas’ amazing technology, Mitchell gets a new super arm and is able to utilize technology that others would only dream of.

The campaign itself isn’t too different compared to the structure of other campaigns in the series, as it consists of light plot elements that are fluffed out with humongous set pieces and riveting action. Although the dialogue and plot can be predictable and a bit corny, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t enthralled with the game’s break-neck pacing and jaw-dropping set pieces. These are elevated thanks to great performances from the cast, though Kevin Spacey is definitely the highlight. There are a few moments where his character legitimately frightened me, though at the same time he wasn’t just a “I want to take over the world” bad guy. You knew where he was coming from, even if you didn’t like where it was he was going.

Of course, multiplayer is where most people will be spending the vast majority of their time and Advanced Warfare delivers another engaging round of multiplayer action. The new mode this time is called Exo Survival, which is essentially a mode where you and other players fend off waves of enemies while upgrading your gear between rounds. It’s nothing revolutionary, but with the new gameplay mechanics and challenging enemies it’s a fun little diversion when you are sick of the regular old multiplayer.

The regular old multiplayer, however, is still addicting and the increased mobility that the Exo Suit brings makes it feel surprisingly fresh. The series has always been known to be a twitch shooter, and now that everything is so much faster that only serves to amplify that fact. Being able to scale obstacles effortlessly and dash around enemies is good and chaotic fun, with each match feeling intense and rewarding. The Prestige system is back to keep you engaged for the long haul, though supply drops have been added to give you more guns to play around with to spice things up.

You have your standard modes to fill out the multiplayer playlists, with most everyone cramming into the deathmatches and absolutely no one going for capture the flag. Seriously, when I was testing this game I could not find one single match of capture the flag, and I waited over an hour. However, there is a new objective mode called Uplink that requires you to secure an object and throw it into the other teams floating goal zone that is loads of fun. Everyone is sprinting around like animals trying to shoot down the person with the ball all while the person with the ball is doing their darnedest to not only stay alive but also have good enough aim to score. It’s pure chaos and I freaking loved it.

In the end, Advanced Warfare is a jolt of electricity that the series definitely needed after the recent stagnation. While the formula certainly hasn’t been overhauled, the Exo Suit offers enough meaningful changes to the game mechanics to make the game’s unchanged singleplayer and multiplayer structures feel fresh. The series still needs some improvement with dialogue and toning down the cliches, but they continue to deliver excellent level design and pacing. Sledgehammer Games has proven that they can deliver a game on par with the best of Treyarch and Infinity Ward, pointing the series in an exciting new direction that has limitless possibilities.

News Judgment… Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Contains 3D Printer Gun

Sledgehammer’s upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is sure to feature many interesting ideas thanks to its futuristic setting, but this latest reveal definitely sounds the most intriguing.

According to Game Informer, there is a new weapon called the 3D Printer Gun, which is able to create bullets while you are using it. There is also a container that is labelled “liquid matter”, which seems like what will be used to create the bullets.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is being developed by Sledgehammer Games for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC and is eyeing a November 4th, 2014 release date.

My Judgment:

This does sound likely a really cool concept. With this gun, you could have a weapon that can fire and create bullets. It probably won’t be unlimited because of the liquid matter container, but it seems like it will take a lot longer to run out of ammo. It will be interesting to see what kind of quirks this will add to the actual gameplay.

Next Call Of Duty Game Subtitled ‘Patriots’?

Rumors are going around that claim that the next Call of Duty game will be called Call of Duty: Patriots and is being developed by Sledgehammer games. Most interestingly, the game is being developed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC only.

According to Bubble News, the game is set during a fictional setting of World War I and will have some sci-fi / fantasy elements. One example of this is that a character from a previous Call of Duty game will appear, but in an alternate reality.

The last bit of news I have to report is that the main campaign will last around 6 hours, but there are reportedly 2 sub-campaigns. They also claim that this new game will release on November 14th.
