Agreed, however I only played it on the PS3 at my brothers house and I have BF3 myself and love it.Originally Posted by mthomas08
Feel free to check yourself on the game/gamestation/hmv weekly reports that are published online...fastest traded in game is MW3 (closely followed by Brink)Originally Posted by mthomas08
Most companies bank on multiplayer to bring people back to the game over and over, who wants to repeat a single player game when they have the achievements for it? When IW walked out, the only thing they didn't do was the MP side of things, as such Havok and other companies took over, redesigned a few COD2 and COD3 maps and made them up to date, as well as pulling a few maps from red orchestra and such like.Originally Posted by mthomas08
BF4 I would like to hope will be WW2 like they have said...imagine maps like stalingrad with destructable buildings! Awesome!Originally Posted by mthomas08
Only positives ive heard is the campiagn is pretty decent?
I like the new killstreak handling and weapon leveling but the bugs are pretty shocking at the moment. Still some fun though, don't know about the campain as I have not done it yet.
Haven't played online yet due to issues, but got really stuck into the Campaign mode.
Thankgod EduGeek is back online so we can discuss such important issues.
So I went to buy BF3 but caved at the last minute and stuck to what I know.
Quite possibly an awful decision, the game stinks! Campaign seems fun from what little I've played of it, but as you've all said MP is full of bugs and is it just me or are there only about 4 maps?!
Love the way kill streaks work now and glad they've returned to a weapon levelling system. Not played the spec ops yet but I loved them in MW2 so I'm sure they'll be great.
Ideal MW4 for me would be - MW3 kill streaks and weapon levelling, Black Ops style wager matches (really missing those in this game!), BF style destructible maps and for the love of all that is mighty I wish they'd at least update the death animation, they've had that same "curl up in a ball and roll over" animation since CoD4!
Activision is not a company I like, they destroyed the Guitar Heroes games by milking it dry with fast releases which didnt really improve much, remember also there was a COD game out last year too.
is it just me or does anyone else long for the days gone by of multiplayer games where things like kill streaks and modifiable weapons didn't exist?
why do we now need to level up on certain weapons, or upgrade a weapon to get a red dot laser or the ability to call in alien spaceships to zap enemies (i may be exaggerating a bit on the red dot sight thing).
counterstrike had a base set of weapons, no real upgrades to it, no kill streaks or rewards as such, just the knowledge you were better.
Unreal Tournament had pretty much the same, with a hint of killstreaks with the "rampage/godlike" announcements.
The makers strive to make the games as real as possible (someone mentioned shrapnel kills?) yet still default back to "get 15 kills and you can upgrade your weapon" type things (im generalising here). why?
want realism? how about the moment you die you lose everything, all your stats reset to 0.....you died....bragging rights over.
i'm obviously getting grumpy in my old(er) age, i just preferred online gaming when it was team 1 vs team 2 and you all had equal weapons and such
Ultimatley i still prefer Operation Flashpoint/Armed Assault over anything, thats the pinnacle of realism, however, i play on my console for its simplicty and ease of play and with it comes these arcade "realistic" shooters.
Incidentally you can now play Arma2 for free! Arma 2 free - Arma 2 Official Website
