Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Review – Xbox One (Also on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox 360)
Call of Duty is a franchise that has been around for over a decade. The first three Call of Duty games from Infinity Ward did a good job of delivering a dramatic war experience but was largely locked to computers. When Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came out in 2007, it turned a niche computer franchise into a household name. Every game since has built upon that titles success. And with a new game each year, Infinity Ward definitely could not do it alone. The first to assist on the franchise was Treyarch and now with this title, we have newcomer Sledgehammer Games. Sledgehammer Games was formed by industry veterans who worked on Dead Space in 2009 and first lent a helping hand on Modern Warfare 3. This means that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the studio’s first game as a lead developer. Therefore not only does Sledgehammer Games have to prove they can handle making a game on their own, they also have to prove they can make a game worthy of Call of Duty.
I’ll be the first to admit, I know nothing about MotoGP. I’ve seen the sport sporadically over the years, I was always fascinated over how they could turn and lean so low near the ground and never completely fall. After doing a little reading I found out that MotoGP is a very popular, worldwide, sport. Much like Formula 1 and it’s lesser cousin NASCAR. There’s a points system, teams and racers, competing to be the best, and with MotoGP 14, you get to experience that on a lesser level than that of the real competitors. But the game isn’t without it’s own high levels of difficulty, and it’s own drama.
