Giant Bomb’s Advanced Warfare Review Stands Out

Does it completely rejuvenate the franchise? You know, it kinda does.

A new Call of Duty is always a hot topic for gamers and critics alike. Whenever the latest iteration launches, many avid fans of the series rejoice: It’s another great shooter that will deliver countless hours of multiplayer fun. But even the most die-hard fans had to admit that last year’s Ghosts was a step backward and as such, there are millions of people who are very interested to see the review scores for Advanced Warfare.

Thankfully, the game seems to be doing quite well among the critic population. Thus far, one really stands out to us; you can find it over at Giant Bomb. Critic Jeff Gerstmann gives the reader a fantastic analysis that includes a bit of franchise history and plenty of great detail. But above all else, he tells readers something that’s absolutely critical:

Call of Duty is still Call of Duty. It’s not a drastic departure from the norm. It’s still a military first-person shooter. That all being said, it’s important to note that the developers did what they could to infuse freshness and a wee bit of innovation into a familiar experience. No critic we’ve seen has done a better job.

It seems like Advanced Warfare is a step in the right direction.

It seems like Advanced Warfare is a step in the right direction.

Why We Like It:

— A ton of appropriate information concerning the new additions and improvements.  With this entry, perhaps more than any other, gamers want to know what’s different.

— The critic gives us a comparison to last year’s effort, which is extremely important simply due to the reputation of Ghosts. The review also brings in other installments to round out the analysis.

In-depth and highly informative, we learn everything we could want to know about both the campaign and the multiplayer.

Congrats, Jeff!
