Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
First-person shooter set on a battlefield in the future
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is a 2014 release in the COD franchise that combines elements of science fiction and military battles.
This first-person shooter game comes with several modes of play. Most players start out in campaign mode, which lets them play a survival story on their own. Jack Mitchell, the character you play as, is a soldier sent out to a futuristic battle. The game gives you a short series of objectives, which you'll view as holograms that come from your weapons. Completing those objectives helps you earn points that you use for upgrading and improving your weapons. The game also comes with a multiplayer mode that lets you play online as part of a team.
A newer mode called Exo Survival lets you join a team with up to three other players and play a coop battle against artificial intelligence characters. This mode features three maps and several tiers on each map. Some levels require that your team stop invading enemies, but other levels ask that you and your team protect certain objects from those enemies. It also comes with a separate zombie game that lets you engage in military battles against invading zombies.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare features the voice talent of some of the world's top actors. Kevin Spacey from “House of Cards” took on the role of the game's main villain. Other celebrities who appeared in the game include Jon Bernthal, Bruce Campbell, Rose McGowan, and Bill Paxton.
Despite following events from the previous installments, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is a little too much like those other games. It doesn't bring a lot of new action or excitement to the series, but fans of the franchise will want to give it a try. Some of the issues you may encounter include glitches in multiplayer mode and cut scenes that go on for too long. Those cut scenes tend to look a little outdated when compared to the game itself too.
Campaign mode is easily the best feature of the game. With realistic weapons, exciting action, and lots of enemies coming at you, you'll love working your way through each battle to come out on top. Released in 2014, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare offers some great improvements on previous editions and comes with four new modes of play.
