Battlefield 3 more for Call of Duty fans, we think not

By Posted 10 Oct 2011, 14:32

It’s always inevitable that people will compare one FPS with another, but we are shocked to hear that some gamers are suggesting that Battlefield 3 is more for Call of Duty fans. Now we are certain that this will cause outrage amongst fans of each franchise, and from what we played a few weeks ago during Eurogamer –we think not.

The beta version of BF3 has been met with criticism due to a number of bugs, as well as cheaters. However, DICE has already said that all these issues will be resolved. The one thing that they will never be able to change is how people perceive the game, and if they think it’s more like an extension of CoD – we just have to let them get on with it.

IncGamers suggests that Call of Duty fans will love Battlefield 3, but fans of the new game from DICE might reconsider. There is some truth to this, because I was always going to get BF3 and give Modern Warfare 3 a miss, based on what was being said about each game. However, after spending some time with each, it looks as though it might have to be the other way around now.

The reason is this; Battlefield 3 comes out the box kicking and screaming, as it’s made out to be much more than what it is. Have you changed your mind about BF3 now that you have had time with it? We just hope that the game can open up much more than it has done so far, if not it could struggle – not in sales but how fans will react to wasting their hard earned cash?

      Yeah some of these articles are bogus. How can you say your liking mw3 now if you have not even played the full game. Same thing for bf you have not played campaign or anything so your opinion is weak as fuuuuh

      Even though I’m not getting Battlefield 3, I do have to admit your comment is very ignorant and nonsensical. Battlefield 3 graphics DO NOT look like the second Battlefield’s and the point of Battlefield is to be unique to other FPS, so DICE, not EA is not going to make Battlefield like Call of Duty, which unfortunately for BF fans KIND OF looks like what they’re doing with BF3 campaign and co-op, but the multi-player being different.
      Also being a son of an English teacher, your comment “makes me want to WEEP and then DDIIIIEE!!!” …come on…any Psych fans??? :D

    Bf3 beta kicked ass, gam is gorgeous, gunplay is great. Not for the more fast paced shooter fan.. I’m jumpin ship from console cod to bf3 pc

    You are such a moron, typical COD fan boy. You people are just like Apple fan boys, so content on buying the same s#!t over and over again. Just because they change the maps on COD doesnt make it a new game, yet you will prefer this over Jets, Tanks, Choppers (Thant you can actually fly), Vehicles, not to mention the actual gameplay on foot is far superior to what COD can offer. Stick to COD, we’ll have our fun with BF3. What an idiot!

      Tell me this, how is Battlefield 3 different FROM THE REST OF THE BATTLEFIELD GAMES!?

      “We have vehicles” – BF already had vehicles
      “We have destructible environments” – BF already has included destructible environments and that isn’t a part of the game, that’s the engine
      “We have huge game types” – BF already had huge game types
      “We have a new engine” – Ok, you do, that’s the engine though, which is separate from the game

      ….

      Basically, BF3 is going to include various aspects from all BF games and make a squeal…so anyone that thinks the game is going to be COMPLETELY DIFFERENT and innovative…it won’t…it’s going to be a Battlefield game…nothing more…

    well i think bf3 looks why better and real compared cod…im cod fan but i have to say im getting both but the only reason im gettin cod is cuz of the survival mode thats it…not game play or looks

  • Dejavu

    i’m a cod fan, 
    wasn’t a fan of Battlefield: bad company 2
    but was excited about BF3, but when i tried the demo for about 1/2 hour, it felt like Battlefield: BC2 all over again.  Cancelled my pre-order.  Looking forward to MW3

    Also, do I want to play a campaign that will excite me and bring a story I’M ALREADY connected with, or play a campaign about some random soldier I don’t care about if he dies or not and leaves me with a “whatever” feeling…I think I’ll go with the more exciting one

    I think the beta was somewhat fun but… It just didnt compare to BC2… At least not the console’s versions anyway… So I’m getting MW3 for 360 and now I’m saving for a new PC because it looks amazing on computer… Mixed feelings about it though… I’ve needed a new PC for, well, my entire life now… I’m using a shitty old box of a computer made in 2005. I mean, the Samsung Galaxy S II Phone has the same specs as my computer (although I have a GPU). However, spending a grand on the computer I want is going to take some time… Especially due to Christmas right around the corner.

    I was not planning on buying BF3 at all until I played the beta. Yes it had bugs, yes it had issues.  But when you got down into the subway and all the glitches faded away and the firefights got going back and forth. I got so pulled into the realism of the graphics, and the sound, and the visuals, that MW3 seemed like a distant memory. Long story short, I still have MW3 on preorder, but the same day that beta came out for BF3 that went on my pre-order list as well.
