Battlefield 3 Vs Modern Warfare 3: Is COD Boring Now?

As we progress towards the release of both Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3, arguably the two most anticipated games of the year, it is evitable that a war of words is going to ignite over which title is going to be the best. Well, some recent comments by EA DICE has kicked things off between the two companies.

When speaking in a recent interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine, DICE General Manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson accused their competitors of being lazy, talking about how other developers are using the same engine and the same formula – recycling it year after year.

This is an obvious reference to Activision’s Call of Duty franchise and the fact that Battlefield 3 makes use of a brand new Frostbite 2 engine, which looks pretty mindblowing we might add. Here is a portion of his statement, as reported from Eurogamer:

“Our competitors are getting lazy. They’re using the same engine, the same recipe for building a game. At some point you need to take that leap. I haven’t seen them take that leap since a long time ago.”

With this in mind, we want to know what are your thoughts on this are. You could argue that DICE are not exactly lying, since the last few Call of Duty games have basically used the same forumla – but that’s not necessarily a bad thing since COD4, Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops have all been hugely successful.

Do you think the Call Of Duty series is getting boring? Considering how good Battlefield 3 looks with a brand new engine, we do feel that Infinity Ward need to step it up themselves with a new engine for Modern Warfare 3 – although we cant see this happening by November. E3 2011 may bring some surprises though so lets wait and see.
