CALL OF DUTY: ADVANCED WARFARE | 1 WEEK IN

So we have been playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare all week and we have to say that we are loving the game! We have been playing the Campaign, Multiplayer and Exo Survival and they are all great.

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfa

Campaign

The Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare campaign is the best Call of Duty campaign we have ever played! and were not just saying that because it is the latest Call of Duty game out. The story to the campaign is fantastic as it starts of with two best friends in the army going out on a mission. But as s**t gets real (to put it lightly) your friend get him arm trapped and push your away to save you! Then things get personal!!

The story is great as it has a massive turn around half way through, so you are going against the people that you work for! But are working for the people that you used to work for. Confusing i know, but if you are going to play the campaign you will get what we mean.

Multiplayer

Well, its different, very different. If you think you are going to go into this game with the tactics and playing style from previous Call of Duty games, !THINK AGAIN!

Advanced Warfare is going to be one of those games that you either love or hate. We love it as it makes a change from all of the other Call of Duty online multiplayer’s! The Exo Suites rely make it a unique game, with everyone jumping around boosting left right and centre, its a very fast paced game which is what we like about it. There are no room for campers in this game as everyone if pin point accurate (most of the time).

Exo Survival

This is a lot harder of a game mode that it is. It is a lot like the third game mode from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 where you have to survive for as long as you can in each round. It’s like zombies but the enemy can shoot back at you.

Speaking of zombies, this is supposed to be dropping in one of the map packs that is coming out, which one we don’t know. (Hopefully not the last one) We have loved zombies since it was launched back on Call of Duty: World at War and has been one of them game modes that you can just go and and have a laugh with your friends, that is why it has become such a fan favourite.

The Evil Within

image

The evil within was at gamescom after being seen back in May. While there we got the plot of the game and what you will be doing within the game.

While investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners encounter a mysterious and powerful force. After seeing the slaughter of his  officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he comes round, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.
At the demo in Germany we played chapter 9 on the mission “cruel intentions” which is pretty far into he game.

The graphics were really sharp  and crisp making for a good horror game. They weren’t quite up to the levels of some of the other games we saw but this could just be down to the purposely placed dingy lighting for horror purposes.

While playing we found that there were still a few bugs in the game which we thought is probably the reason that the release date was pushed back a bit.
The things we found were when picking up items it took a few attempts at different angles for the pick up icon to appear, this isn’t s problem in quieter parts of the game but if your on the run and you have to try and pick up ammo from different angles you may get a zombie up behind you planting it’s teeth into you. The other thing we found was not a bug as such but more of a personal opinion. When walking through a door there’s an option to open it slowly but with this comes a small cut scene which after a few times becomes laborious. There is an option to kick the door down quickly without a cut scene but this can be more trouble than its worth.

Now onto the game play. It is the standard layout and controls for this type of game. Compared to other zombie games where a few shotgun shells to the body or head will end them but in this game you have to get them down and then burn them with a match to make sure that they don’t get back up again.
In some Instances in the game you will need to just run away because of lack of ammo or too many enemies, this can be a problem because of the stamina bar. This feature will force you to scavenge for everything you can, even bottles can be thrown for distractions or weapons.

Being sneaky in this game is definitely the the way to go. Throughout the game you will be able to be sneaky and do thing such as hiding under beds and in cupboards and wardrobes.

Overall this game looks like it will be a good addition to the many horror games out there. The way the game is meant to be played may be a bit hard for some people to get used to in a world of fast paced 1st person shooters. The game did have a few tense and scary moments combined with the eerie and jumpy soundtrack but we feel that if the the game was 1st person it would add alot lore suspense and tension to the game and would also intensify the scary moments with in the game.

The game looks like it will be a good contender in the horror game market and will be a must buy when it gets released in October this year.

Takeoff

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 19.51.52

Takeoff brings us back to one of the fan favorites from black ops which is ‘Stadium’ but has been given a new vibe, atmosphere, theme and a new look by being a floating rocket launch facility in the middle of the ocean, but all the familiar routes and flanking points will all still be familiar to the player.

Dig

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 19.51.41

The next map is the map ‘Dig’ which is set in an archeological site that is being excavated, it has been made around the Call of Duty: World at War map courtyard, but has been made its own map with its own unique features.

Origins

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 19.52.05

Origins is the last Zombies map in the series. As the name of the map says, it goes back to the origin of the zombies idea, where Nikolai Belinski, Tank Dempsey,Takeo Masaki and Edward Richtofen meet for the first time. They join each other in the largest scale zombie map ever made. The atmosphere is further enhanced by dynamic weather changes such as snow falling, rolling fog and rain storms.

A new feature is the zombie tank, which is a defendable platform that will move around the map which you can use to hold off zombie hordes and to possibly discover some easter eggs along the way.

Oh yeah, did i mention the GIANT ROBOTS!!??

A 1000 foot robot will be striding across the landscape which will create hazards or opportunities for the skilled player making this a zombies map that has to be seen to be believed.
