Haha, you said Duty!

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Call of Duty

From my time in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, I’ve already hijacked a cargo plane in the Artic, used Mag Gloves to climb a skyscraper while the Atlas Corporation hunted me down, and driven a hover-tank through a forest while destroying tanks and EMPing Warbirds. So, pretty much, it’s great to play the new CoD. However, I’m not going to write a review, or put a score. I’m just going to give some information about the game,but try to not spoil it, give some thoughts, and let you decide. Let’s start, shall we?

Story

The story in CoD has you working for the U.S Military as Private Jack Mitchell (Troy Baker), who joined up with his best friend Will Irons. The U.S military is currently being dispatched to Seoul to help stop the North Korean invasion of the city. Eventually, after some events, Mitchell is discharged from the military and joins up with the Atlas Corporation, the largest private military contractor in the world, ran by Jonathan Irons (Kevin Spacey), the father of Will. I’m going to try not to spoil the rest of the story so I’ll stop there, but overall the story is very good.

Multiplayer

As always, the multiplayer is back in Advanced Warfare. However, this time around, it is actually pretty fun to play. The Exo Suit and the Exo Abilities that come with the new game are very fun to use, and very responsive. The killstreaks are back, with classics like UAV, and some new ones, like the orbital laser cannon XS1 Vulcan. However, with most new game releases, at the time of writing, some matches in CoD AW can experience extreme lag, which I have hated, along with every other CoD player and their dog. Hopefully, High Moon Studios will be able to fix these issues, so I can work on getting that prestige.

Thoughts

CoD has outdone itself this year, with having a fantastic story, a great multiplayer and some issues that can be easily fixed. I personally think it’s is indeed worth $60. However, again, this is not a review or verdict, these are just my personal thoughts. Don’t buy this game because of what I think, buy it because of what you think.
