    If you like first person shooters, this is a must buy. This game is up there that shows the true potential of the next generation consoles. The graphics have noticeably gotten more realistic and sharper than previous Call of Duty games, even like Call of Duty: Ghosts. People look scary real. If you are not used to a game like this, the learning curve is very easy. Everything feels natural, especially with the PS4's dualshock 4 controller. The campaign is action packed and fast paced, and keeps you hooked throughout the whole story. And the sound! If you happen to have any surround sound speakers, or subwoofers for bass, you are in for a treat. The first time I loaded up the game, I could feel the vibrations. It sounds and feels like you are in a movie theater watching an action movie. The multiplayer on this game is also quite extraordinary. The gun selection is pretty extensive and they all work well for different scenarios and they feel great. There are no bad choices of maps to play on, ranging from a Volcanic observatory in hawaii, to some cool greek seaside buildings, these maps are definitely highlights. They all look stunning, and some even have a few extra tricks hidden up their sleeves. The games are very fast paced, and shooting feels great. The new motion mechanics are definitely a plus, adding a whole new dimension to the games. While you saw a cool building to go climb on top of in something like Black Ops 2, you couldn't really do anything except go inside. Now, you can practically fly to places, and jump and hide on all sorts of roofs and everything. The whole experience feels really authentic and satisfying, and even though it is similar to other Call Of Duty games in some ways, I never felt like it was ever going to get boring. If you need a new game to truly show why you got your new console, this game will not let you down. But, if you are not a fan of going from point A to point B, then you would be better off with an open world game, like Far Cry 4, or something else. But, in conclusion, I highly recommend this. It is worth the money and you will not be disappointed.

    At first you will be excited about "burst-flying" over objects with a jet-pack ... and then the flaws become obvious! I have owned all of the COD games on all the various PS platforms, and Advanced Warfare on the PS3 and PS 4 (I sadly own both) has been the MOST DISAPPOINTING in recent memory ... unless you are are a fan of constantly random spawns where a guys is already running right at you or worse .... is behind you and you don't even know it! They added "jet packs" that will now have enemies constantly dropping in from behind and above you ... again, nothing as fun as getting shot in the back no matter how good you are. And don't get me started on the gun-system. No joke, the system lets you "earn" supposedly upgraded versions of your guns ... but they always have flaws. For example, you might earn an upgrade of an exisiting gun but this new one has a silencer. Instead of making that the upgrade, the system then DOWNGRADES your gun in some other categaory (like range). Son in the end, the upgrade is no better .... and possibly worse ... than what you originally had. And you'd think this game on the NEW PS4 would not have freezing issues. My clan is all across the country and literally each person freezes up at least once a day playing just COD Advanced Warfare. You can no longer see the KDRs of folks in the lobby, so you don't know who might be hacking as you could always deduce in prior versions. Most 30+ year old folk's who I know who bought this game have pretty much abandoned it within 1 month and are mad that the bought it . Only 10,000 players were playing it yesterday ... and yesterday was a SATURDAY when there should be over 125,000 players using it . I think that says it all!

    This years COD installment tries to mix it up a bit with a futuristic spin on the rogue private military contractor story. The big change is the addition of exo-suites for multiplayer and campaign missions. The addition of the exo-suites adds some interesting variety to your standard assault or stealth insertion missions, and the ability to use smart grenades to expose enemy locations, provide EMP bursts or home in on enemy combatants is a nice twist. The other weapons are pretty dull standard assault rifles, grenade launchers, etc. The campaign was fun and was completed on normal in 12 hours or so. The story is incredibly cliché - but Kevin Spacy does a great job being Kevin Spacy. The other voice acting is also very good. All in all, a decently fun destructive romp through various environments and with differing exo-suit abilities, with a predictable story line and somewhat meh ending. Not compelling enough to pull me away from other titles, but worth revisiting later on if things get slow with other releases. But lets be real, by the time I think about going back to this COD, the next iteration will be on the horizon and this one will be last years bargain bin version. I have not yet ventured into multiplayer or coop, so can't comment on that aspect of the game. I will try it, if I can ever drag myself away from Destiny.

    I love it!! That say's a lot because I didn't like ghost at all. Couldn't get through the story cause it was just eww and I didn't like the online play. Plus idk, it was just something about ghost that was very unappealing... Advance warfare is drastically different. I love the exo-suits, the guns, the story is amazing!!! It's just a good piece of work. Much better than destiny in my opinion. Destiny has a crap story that doesn't make any sense. Advance warfare is totally different. The one thing i don't like is the exo zombies (the fact that it wasn't included with the game). The mode is fun, but i like playing the other stuff more. Well, my review is mostly based on the story and exo zombie mode. I haven't really got to play much online. The one time i did i had a lot of fun. Also, if you plan on buying this, its much cheaper to get advanced warfare stand alone under 30, plus buy the exo zombie pack with it. If you get the gold addition. You are technically getting cheated... That's how i was able to get mines.

    Good Game But Has Issues

    The graphics of this game are intense and the game play is exactly what you would expect from another game in the COD series. I have not done the campaign mode as of yet, so I cannot comment on that, however the multiplayer is exactly like all of the other COD games. If you were a fan of the other games, you will enjoy this one as well. I like the concept of the exo-suit and your ability jump up to the roof of the various buildings in each of the maps. I have enjoyed playing each of the multiplayer maps and I think they are well-balanced for all play types but they lend themselves to a run-and-gun style of play rather than sitting and sniping. The only issue I have had with game is the aggravating lag that COD is famous for. Some maps are downright frustrating because of poor connection issues with other players in the lobby. Until they implement dedicated servers (which has been promised by Sledgehammer), you will likely experience the same lag issue everyone else playing the game is dealing with. It really is a shame, because besides the lag, this is a very solid addition to the franchise.

    Best since Black Ops 2

    Old school CoD player here. Been playing since LANing CoD:UO with other friends on the PC and I opted to get CoD:AW on the PS4 even though I know I would prefer M+K for the controls. Overall, for a console release the game is very solid. 60fps without many hickups as far as performance goes. That being said, it looks like a game from 2008. The lighting and after-effects try to mask the really bad textures in this game and at some points I feel like I'm in a very tight space in the campaign without being able to explore even the slightest. Multiplayer speaking, the game is what you would expect from a CoD game. Who shoots first wins. They tried to add extra mobility but good players will still prey on bad players. It's the way of the FPS genre. Overall, if you're a big CoD fan, I recommend this game. If you want something LIKE Titanfall but don't have a PC or Xbone, BUILD A GORRAM PC. Titanfall is a much better game in all aspects, and actually was made from many of the same team that made CoD:MW popular.

    I was extremely surprised with this last CoD. I have only played a bit here and there of the other CoDs, but this one really got me hooked. It is such an interesting take on the classic. It has the same low TTK and fast pace action that the rest had, but it is insanely addictive. The Exo boosts and double jump etc. bring the skill cap up ridiculously, making it easy to learn, but hard to master. (A type of game I have always been a fan of). Sure, there were a few glitches here and there, but they are all fixed as much as I have seen. Runs smooth 60fps (I dont even see it dip to 59 when recording) and looks gorgeous. If you are a fan of CoD be prepared for a different kind of CoD. It is a great game, and keeps the playstyle, but is worlds different from its predecessors. 9.5/10 for me. Love it, will keep playing for quite a bit. Idk if I want to get the BO3 that is supposedly coming out if it doesnt have the Exo Movement that this game has.

    I'm always been a fan of COD, but nothing beats COD 4 Modern warfare the first one, the story line is the best and multiplayer was also good, plus the game was so simple, the sniping level, the gunner ship, I was like woah!!, I played the campaign too many times on the hard level. With this game, it got kevin spacey so that's a plus, but the thing that Finity ward and Activision don't understand, modern warfare 4 is so simple that it makes the game the best and won game of the year! So from modern warfare 2 to advanced warfare it became so chaotic it gives you a migraine than actually enjoying the game. Advanced warfare has some good moments. COD supposed to be not only made for multiplayer because that gets old, but hopefully someday it'll go back to the roots of modern warfare 4. Hopefully Activision and Finity ward reads this.

    Call of Duty is a game that has historically been seen as caring about it's multiplayer mode and haphazardly throwing in a campaign mode at the last minute. That is not the case this year. The story mode has great graphics--most notably with Kevin Spacey as one of the main characters. But it doesn't stop there. The story is really gripping and does have a bit of replayability. The story itself isn't quick by any means, but is interesting enough that you can find yourself beating it in just a couple of sessions. As for the multiplayer, it definitely is different than last year. However, as a FPS fan, it just seems like they said "How can we make this game like Titanfall" and then did that. If you played Titanfall, you will be very comfortable here. Not that that is a bad thing, but it's worth noting.

    So they come out with a new COD every year and most of the time they're nothing special. This ones not ground breaking but at least the graphics were better than in Ghost. The multiplayer on PS4 is alright. Not as competitive as on Xbox 360 or Xbox One - which I wasn't expecting. It has a decent campaign - although short as usual. The maps are pretty cool. I didn't buy the DLC but I object to being charged half the price of the full game for three maps and a couple of stupid skins. I've been burned by that kind of purchase before. The EXO abilities pretty much amount to a double jump and auto-mantling but they have a multiplayer mode for those who wish to turn off the EXO stuff. Haven't played Zombies yet but I'd rather sleep at night. It's good COD. That's my take.

    This is only the 3rd COD game I’ve ever purchased, and the 1st one purchased on console (PS4). The maps are great for ground to air attacks (a few are a tad tiny). The games last around 10 minutes (one sided games are tolerable). Opening supply crate drops are great for new gear. This is the best addition to the franchise. Feels just as good as getting Destiny gear without the huge investment in game time. This game is very different from other shooters that I play, and I’m better in those other shooters because of that fact. A little bigger map with a couple more opponents would’ve made this game a very happy mess of gamer insanity. Best Buy also priced matched, so I received a great price on the game.

    I have been and avid follower of the COD series for quite some time. My first COD experience dates back COD 4, and I'll never forget the riveting experience I felt the first time I played it. Well, with the release of COD Advanced Warfare, I can unequivocally say that I have experienced that scintillating feeling again. The campaign is great, and the online multiplayer has improved, as well. The graphic are substantially better than I imagined (something you would expect with a title "advanced" in it). Overall, this COD is a great improvement on the last, and I look forward to the next one that releases.

    Let me say that this is my favorite Call of Duty since Modern Warfare 2. Although the gameplay is standard Call of Duty gameplay, it has been mixed up by the exo suits, allowing you to traverse around the map like never before. In my experience so far (about 5 hours played online), the guns and killstreaks seem balanced. Of course, this could change in a couple of months when people find out the exploits. While the game is fun, it does have some problems. In some games, I've noticed that the netcode is pretty bad. But it isn't enough to take away from the fun experience. Oh, and the campaign is pretty darn good. Kevin Spacey does a great job in his role.

    Here's another ctrl+c ctrl+v Call of Duty title. They did a good job of trying to vary the misc. multiplayer and single player components, but that's like changing a few minor ingredients in a stagnant , overplayed recipe. The campaign was the most impressive part of this game. For the few people who only play the campaign, you are in for a treat. Was very entertaining and had lots of great parts that weren't linear run and gun down a hall/through a building/on a rooftop. The campaign was of a solid length at about 10-12 hours, give or take. ALOT longer than previous titles. If you've played CoD online before, you've played AW. Just add jetpacks.

    Let me start by saying that I haven't really enjoyed Call of Duty games for a couple years now but this is a fresh take on the familiar formula. The core gameplay is hard to change so they instead added the use of Eco suits which adds a whole new dimension to the combat. Now people zip and zoom in all directions which can lead to some intense dogfights. The graphics also received a much needed facelift. The campaign is one of the best of the series and is actually fun. Normally, I skip them and go straight to MP but this is definitely worth it. Still full of Michael Bay-style explosions everywhere but still an improvement and worth a playthrough.

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    Single player comments: I've skipped the last few years of COD because they we're just too similar. The addition of future tech and Kevin spacey to make an engaging story worked well. The action as always was stellar and exciting, gameplay is solid. My only negative would be the scripted use of this awesome tech. You can only engage the stealth option at a specific scene, you can't freely use it to flank in a firefight. The drone is used in two dedicated drone scenes. It's a tease to have this stuff and not be able to use it. But I am completely satisfied grabbing this on sale after a few years away from the series.

    The online play constantly and I mean CONSTANTLY freezes along with network server availability. The game it self is fun but like most COD's can be very frustrating with the camping (let I remind you, that you can't camp in exo survival game play which I find ridiculous), inaccurate melee's, unfavorable spawning positions, and there's no ZOMBIES....wtf! Campaign is pretty sweet and the graphics are amazing. Exo-survival gameplay is ok, I enjoy it but its very easy to beat so it makes no more then a "time waster" type of game. However this is a new revolutionary COD so thumbs up except for the minors.

    Ive bought all of the cod games. Upgraded my Ps3.. I should say downgraded. Graphics are better BUT. ONLINE GAMING YOU HAFTO PAY FOR. Just to give you heads up. The weapons are ok I like what they did with the red dot sights. The heavy machine guns are trash. The ROCKET PACKS ruined the game. The dashes are good for getting across the map. But try shooting somebody that is doing this constantly. COD was popular because it was realistic and did well. Now its too far fetched. I will be returning my ps4 until they come out with a different COD. It blows my mind how many good reviews this game has gotten.

    The core gaemplay is definitely Call of Duty, as it should be. But FINALLY the graphics have caught up to everyone else and quite possibly have surpassed. The environments and characters look great. The frame rate is flawless and online lag has been minimal so far. The exo suit adds a new vertical dimension, but you will need to get used to the annoying go-prone shooters now double jumping all over the place Halo-style. Definitely fun and a great campaign so far. If you like COD - pick it up and you'll love it! If COD annoyed you in the past, stay away, the annoyances may be magnified.

    I have enjoyed this game for years and this was not a disappointment. The game's evolution was appropriate and challenging. The sound and graphics did not disappoint. The challenges were excellent and I was never discouraged because there was always something new to try. I love this franchise even though the competition is getting much, much closer. The story line was excellent and the casting of Kevin Spacey was brilliant. I am not sure what is next but this will hold me over. This felt more like a next gen game than the last one and I appreciate that. Excellent and fun.
