Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Supremacy DLC Review (PS4) - "This is my Boomstick"

By Sam Coles:
So Sledgehammer games finally release their third piece of DLC for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare for PS4 which continues the Exo Zombie mode and gives you 4 new maps to play around in multiplayer which seem revolve around governmental building as well as a remake of the Modern Warfare 2 map Highrise.
The new map Carrier adds a new character to the mix who is played by none other than Bruce Campbell who brings his fantastic B-movie cheese to the Zombie mode. It is what the mode needed because up to until this point the mode was somewhat serious and Bruce mixed with the over the top violence is a perfect match.
Here are the 4 maps that you’ll get with the multiplayer:
This map takes place in the parliament of Russia also known as the Kremlin so you’ll be battling through the halls of this governmental building which is a mix of close quarters and medium range fights as there is an outside bridge where there are mounted Miniguns in windows either side of the bridge. It can get very dicey in game modes such as Hardpoint as you can have people at either end on the miniguns laying down covering fire on the area.
This is a close quarter’s map set on a boat in the river Thames just by the Houses of Parliament so recommended loadout would be SMG’s and Shotguns to get the best out of this map, but do watch out there are a lot of out of the way places where snipers can get set up and aren’t that noticeable sometimes.
Skyrise if the title didn’t give it away or if you have not been a Call of Duty player in the past 7 years is a reimagining of the map Highrise from Modern Warfare 2 which with the added boost jumps makes the map more interesting because you can reach parts of the map that you couldn’t before, so you can get great vantage points. This a medium to long range map so keep an assault rifle or sniper handy to deal with resistance.
Compound is a very close quarters map which apparently if you use spectator mode it looks very similar to the map Rust from Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, but has been remade into an Atlas training facility. The main problem I have with this map is in the game mode Uplink that the game doesn’t go anywhere most of the time because the ball gets stuck in the middle because people just camp and gun everybody down so you can’t move the ball at all most of the time.
Overall the inclusion of Bruce Campbell and his funny quips make this DLC and gives the zombies mode a light hearted to touch.
