Shadowmapping, phong, dynamic lights and shadows, impressive animations, and physiscs all rolled into an engine that's about as technically demanding as Left 4 Dead. It's a nice little engine. I think all of the hate for this engine just is sprouted from the hate for Call of Duty.

This is a pretty nice engine, it has good lighting effects on objects, but it's very limited. I consider this to be an average game engine.

Could be even better.

still hmm uhh why using this engine all time ????

The engine is decent if you want "flashy" graphics, yet the engine is one of the most buggy engines I've ever used in my opinion. The online multiplayer is unstable, the engine freezes constantly, the physics are jumpy, the AI is bad(In my opinion, worse than the ID tech engine they based it on.)and finally, the security features are lacking almost completely.

Surprised by all the bad votes here... Maybe it just the hate for COD and everything related to it. Anyways, it's a good engine with nice features, but it's way too overused

Old ****** engine


Old,crappy textures and ugly
Only in Call of Duty: Ghosts you made only more active environment
The Frostbite is old,but its more active than this one
I have hope that Sledgehammer will save Advanced Warfare

Or i will be still dissapointed by Call of Duty

Call of Duty 2 to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2 had the best of the engine. Now it totally sucks and yet the AI is outdated and there are a bunch of crappy bugs.

4.0 / 10 - Bad
