As above, you both stated what I was going to say :P
BF3 is in no way similar to CoD other than the SP campaign and how the story was told.
I can state what is different in BF3 over COD games, you can be in a squad, you can drop ammo, med kits and even revive fallen teammates, repair vehicles and spot enemies. The way the guns behave and sound is completely different and more realistic. The way you can only succeed is by playing as a team and not run and gun all makes its a completley different game. I'm not saying COD is bad as I do enjoy sometimes just going in and fragging away but to call the games similar is just wrong lol
Although the BF3 rip off was more MW2/Blackops and you also answered your own comment with why it seemed too alike. Than again it was only about 6 months ago I played Black Ops and MW2 and 1 - I wanted to know what the hype was about. So that is still fresh in my mind. In the end what would be a longer list, the similarities or the differences?
As for MW2 and BF2 (wasnt MW1 and BF2 released around the same time), plus Single Player for BF2 was BF style - not story mode but multiplayer with bots. Unless you are telling me all FPS games must be modern warfare in the middle east/terrorists? What ever happened to "Come up with new stuffs for us to play?"
Infantry Ward's method was just pump out altered versions of MW and sell them as a "new" game.
I did enjoy MW. I loved it online, but the day they cut dedicated servers out was they day I flipped them the middle finger.
BF2 became the highest rated "Modern" FPS and several games tried to take the crown (CS, Doom) and then Activision got on board and turned their COD series into a successful franchise and did a good job (no denying this, MW1, WAW and MW2 are great games). Activision lost the plot when EA released BC1 with frostbite engine 1.0 that they ramped up production to make the games look prettier, (MW2) then did the same again when BC2 was with frostbite engine 1.5 got released (BO, MW3), and now Frostbite 2 is out with BF3 and activision have stated in a US Game Convention that they want to make their own version of the frostbite engine...
Its going to be interesting but considering a massive amount have migrated from COD to BF things will be interesting in the future.
Yep that patch was nice, especially native widescreen support at last. Hopefully BF3 will continue to be well supported too.
Its actually good that Battlefield has done so well, looks like these two games will be battling it out for years to come which can only be great news for us as the consumer.
I like BF3 even though I suck at it. EA have handled the game in a far better manner then Activision have with Modern Warfare, it's a shame they come up with stupid ideas like Origin and have a PR and legal team that make stupid cock-ups. >.<
Will admit..... I do miss 1942, hopefully we can have another COD based game in WW2 think its time to cut down the middle east / terrorist ideas at least for a good few more years.
BF hasnt used bots for quite a while now, last years bad company 2 had a really good sp campaign bf3 not so good, but the squad base mp is awesome
the bot based gameplay was poor but it hasnt been like taht scince bad company 1 i think?
Swapped to battlefield 3 and not looked back yet, best game ever.
