Living here in the most southern part of Africa, we’re a bit hard pressed for outstanding online performance. Still, there are a handful of games that smile down on us, letting us know that as far away as we are, we still have a place in the online multiplayer world. This year wasn’t the best for the most stable multiplayer launches, but there was one standout title that proved itself better than the rest.
And the winner is… Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare!
Let’s forget Kevin Spacey for a minute and focus on the real star of Advanced Warfare: the Exo Suit. That little sucker breathed life into the Call of Duty franchise once more, taking the game’s multiplayer madness to all new heights. The addition of verticality, as subtle as it is, changes the tried and tested formula entirely, delivering a Call of Duty that truly feels different to the rest.
Not only that, but some of this year’s best multiplayer moments have come from Advanced Warfare’s best mode, Uplink. Scurrying around to get a ball into a goal hasn’t been this entertaining since Liverpool last won the Premier League. So basically it has never, ever been as fun as it is now.
