Call of Duty Advanced Warfare review

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is brought to us from Sledgehammer games for their first entry in the three year cycle of the Call of Duty franchise. With the newest entry Sledgehammer games have gone out of their way to deliver an interesting first run for their time with the franchise and has honestly left me to beg the question where should you start with the game. Taking us away from the traditional spiral of boring campaigns and empty promises Sledgehammer games steps out for their time in the sun with great pride and an amazing accomplishment.

Usually Call of Duty games draw a fine line between the two key components they offer, often this comes down as an average single player campaign to play then often the usually great fun multiplayer. It is rare that the single player campaign presented in this franchise does anything more then be a small distraction you play simply because it is part of the game. I am proud to say though that the single player campaign is honestly well worth your time.

Sledgehammer Games confirms Advanced Warfare not coming to Wii U

After month of will they, won’t they the fate of a Wii U version of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has been confirmed and might I just say I am not happy with the end result. Sledgehammer games co-founder Micheal Condrey has officially made confirmation that no Wii U version will be made of this entry. This was all said in a quick statement:

no, no WiiU. That was an Activision decision. We are focused on XboxOne, PS4, and PC.

So there we have it the fate has been decided and Wii U players are left disappointed that Activision is showing it’s true colours and not even providing the best console platform for Call of Duty the latest Call of Duty game.I am now annoyed as I have said quite nicely in the past the Wii U provides the best experience for a Call of Duty game and this abandonment might just lose some of the new players who started on the Wii U.

However all hope may not be lost, if another studio can step in and make a Wii U port then we will be in luck, however this close to release the chances are unlikely and now we may as well go into a corner wrap ourselves up and cry like the banana fairy in Donkey Kong 64.
