Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare gameplay video — the first missions

Cod2

We only started playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare today, so we don't have a review just yet (it seems pretty reasonable that we play it before reviewing it). Our colleagues who have already played it, however, are liking it, which is good to hear. I wasn't a big fan of last year's CoD: Ghosts, but it's a new year and a different studio, so I'll keep an open mind. So far, I do sense that at least some of last year's criticisms will return, but I haven't played a great deal of it yet. And Spacey. There is Kevin Spacey, you can't deny that.

My full review will be up by Friday. In the meantime, here's a video (played on LPC Jr.) and some commentary on the first couple missions of the campaign. I'll get to the multiplayer later this week when I've played enough that I don't embarrass myself.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
