Latest "Clueless Gamer" segment takes on Sledgehammer's just-released FPS.

THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS ABOUT CALL OF DUTY: ADVANCED WARFARE.

We've already told you what we think about Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, but what about comedian Conan O'Brien? If you were waiting for O'Brien's opinion, now you're in luck, as he has posted his "review" of Sledgehammer Games' just-released shooter as part of his "Clueless Gamer" segment.

Check out the video above to see O'Brien play a few minutes of Advanced Warfare and make all manner of jokes about the game. O'Brien makes fun of the game's funeral scene ("hold X to pay respects") and the way in which you perform a double jump--"I'd like to double tap that A," he says.

O'Brien also jabs at the virtual version of Kevin Spacey depicted in the game, saying his character's eyes are not rendered very believably.

According to a previous report, some publishers pay to have their games appear on O'Brien's Clueless Gamer segment, though it is unclear if this was the case with Advanced Warfare.

Advanced Warfare was released on Monday through the Day Zero edition and is available everywhere today. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's review and what other critics are saying.

I love Conan's clueless gamer reviews. Makes games that I would never buy like COD look fun to play.

You know, that was actually funny XD

I don't watch his show, nor am I interested in CoD, but decided to watch anyway.

Seems like Conan genuinely enjoyed playing the game, usually he just seems to trudge through it (while still being funny).

Conan can be funny even when playing a game like CoD.

I always thought Kevin Spacey doesnt look good in this game. Maybe cuz we know what he is suppose to look like and he isnt just a random looking person

"Review" is not the right word. It's more a preview or intro of the game.

<< LINK REMOVED >> That's how advertising works. Talk shows like this are fuelled by advertising. When was the last time someone went on a show like this just to have a chat, not to sell something.

lmao... I thought the "Press X to pay respects" was just a joke. That video was hilarious.

Why analogue sticks suck, they aren't 1:1 movement like a mouse is so people new to the genre struggle with them. Even as a gamer I choose not to play FPS games on consoles, until they come up with an alternative to analogue sticks I'm sticking to PC.

<< LINK REMOVED >> That's kind of the point of the sticky aim/auto-aim implemented in all console shooters, making it easier to hit things on analogue. Many developers have tried many different input methods, you don't think that MS or Sony has ever prototyped something different? At this point in history, the analogue stick controller is the best option for couch gaming. I'm a PC gamer and even sometimes I plug in a controller to chill on the couch. Mouse movement at 1:1 is awesome, but everyone can't always be sitting at a desk, and see as no one has invented a better alternative, we will continue to use it.

I like Conan, but I know he couldn't give a sh.it about gaming or nerdy things. He just happens to have an audience that does.
