Call of Duty: Ghosts was a disaster and the final nail in the coffin for the gutted, shriveled corpse that was Infinity Ward. Sledgehammer is finally here with their first game, and while it may not truly be the "next gen" Call of Duty that many were hoping for, we can all agree on one thing: It's a heck of a lot better than Ghosts.
As with my Ghosts review, all pictures besides the cover art were taken by me of the PS4 version of the game.
So there you are riding through the Atlas facility, Kevin Spacey is shouting at you over the noise as you take in the epic scenery, "What you are seeing is advanced warfare!" he says as you are severely... underwhelmed... because despite his need to shout there actually isn't anything loud going on, even from t…

Currently the hype train is obviously set towards Call of Duty 11, or as we know it Advanced Warfare. As I've been rather open about, I'm still far more interested in seeing what Treyarch's next offering is, as Infinity Ward has lost my trust and Sledgehammer has yet to gain it. So this begs the question, what will Treyarch's upcoming entry for 2015 actually be?
I doubt it.
Let's think from a business perspective. After all, the guys at Activision are funding this, and they ultimately are who say what goes and what doesn't. They don't intend this series to end any time soon, and they need to keep people interested.
Typically one of the major fall outs with any long-running series is escalation. Any follow-up is obligated to be bigger and hopef…

It has become extremely common for most people, those against the series in particular, to accuse Call of Duty's multiplayer as being "mindless shooting" and little else. After spending the last several hours playing Black Ops II for the first time in over three months, (which I loved every second of) I can say you are bringing that attitude upon yourself, because it's certainly not how I play.
Call of Duty is a skillful game; this isn't opinion, it's fact. This common misconception is due to the twitch like nature of the mechanics; Most take each individual gun fight as the main source of skill, much like how it is in Halo. In reality, the skill largely comes in the form of environmental awareness, and the ability to predict situations. Thi…Read more >
Ohhhh boy... Welp, here it is. My brother got this, and due to my currently extremely low amount of PS4 games (as in, I only have Shadow Fall so far besides this), I did play this and I tried as hard as I could to enjoy it. My expectations were low but... bleh... let's just get on with it.
First of all, it's Call of Duty. Of course you've got some of the best feeling FPS controls in the genre, and thankfully this time around most of the weapons and weapon sound effects are fun and satisfying to use. The campaign also has some legitimately cool and fun moments such as "Federation Day" as well as the under-water and space levels.
The writing is horrible, and not even the good kind of horrible that you can take as dumb fun, it's just bad. The di…

Tis' the season to be doing Game of the Year awards and dealing with loads of school work for the end of the first semester, but since I already did my Game of the Year Awards and am a procrastinating idiot, I'd say it's time to finally getting around to that Black Ops II review I promised over a year ago, and of course it's Black Ops II
because Ghosts is a load of grey unimpressive horribly written mess so screw that game until I actually bother to play it!(I've played it now and should have a review coming later)
Black Ops II's campaign still absolutely shines. Treyarch already has a reputation from me for having the best campaigns as it is undeniable they actually put more effort into the writing than Infinity Ward did ever since Call of …
