Why is this franchise better than Call of Duty?

I dont think either is better than the other, both are really fun for their own reasons

Battlefield has huge maps, at least 4 or 5 times bigger than any COD maps. This changes the whole dynamic of the game because battlefield features ground vehicles like Tanks, Jeeps and Helicopters. Team play is important in Battlefield, you need good teammates and have to work together with the different classes, medics, engineers to fix tanks etc. Sniping is much more prominent in Battlefield, at least compared to the most recent Black Ops.

I've always loved the Call of Duty franchise since the original MW. Relatively small maps, kill streaks, good balance of weapons, weapon customization. The last 4 games have differed from each other quite a bit. MW2 was difficult for me, too much of the game catered to campers who would just sit behind walls building their killstreaks. Thats another good thing about battlefield, destructible environments, nowhere to hide. Ive always liked the graphics in the Cod series over battlefield, but apparently MW3 is using the same graphics engine as Black Ops and Battlefield 3's are amazing as these videos show.

F YA can't wait for this. Glad to see you can go prone. The guy in the last clip was pretty good, that's pretty much how I play the game constant rushing.

WOW, those graphics look unreal!

Stoked for this, even more since Ive been playing Bad Company 2 again

Are you gonna get it for 360 or PS3?

I've been playing bad company 2 a bunch, not sure how I overlooked that game but I think I was just bitter about battlefield being on consoles.

It's awesome tho, I went 26/11 yesterday purely as assault capping flags the whole time.


fun game,  wish my mic wasn't fucked up.

Yea man fun games yesterday. It was good when your mic worked for 10 minutes haha. The high pitched screeching noise after hurt my brain, get a new mic. If you dont have the texting pad grab that it comes with a mic and the combo is like 30$ or under.

The game is probably worth the 45 quid just for the audio.

ive been playing the beta, and while i wish i could review the game it feels like such an early build full of obvious glitches. The one down side to the beta is that despite it only being out for 48 hrs now. There is already clans of guys with crazy shit unlocked and have mastered the one map already, it's a quick reminder how unbalanced these games can get.

Its gonna be sick, you can tell. Theres so many glitches in this beta its hilarious but i think it's an early build, hopefully most of the testing is being done for the servers. Ive spawned inside a rock and been stuck, lost sound many times, cant walk over a 2 inch step up (have tp jump).

But asides from all the glitches I was able to fuck a lot of people up with the assault class and i really like how they did the prone in this.

The full games gonna be insane, this is just a tease especially since i mostly play conquest.

bc2 is dope and i play it alot, but the beta drove me fucking nuts, so many bugs and it's laggy as fuck. i've been waiting for this game for so long so i think i'm just going to delete the beta and wait for the full game.

As a mainly COD player I must say I'm pretty impressed by the beta (obvious glitches aside) Not sure what other modes it will have on full release but I'm enjoying the one that is on the Beta version, fucked quite a few guys up and levled up a fiar bit with the assault class.

I think I over hyped myself on the beta. Was a huge fan of BF2 and played that game non-stop back in the day, but I feel like this didn't live up to my expectations. That being said, it's only a beta and I'm still enjoying the hell out of it. Doing pretty good with the recon class.

Also Xbox live is free until Monday, so I get to use my regular account. Any slap heads trying to play this weekend?

prone grass  stealth kill have made this game the GR experience i dearly miss. This beta is sloppy but the gameplay requires a pacing and team effort unique to BF brand.

luckily all of those kids will be weeded out once the full game comes out and they move on to MW3

I enjoy the beta, interested to see balancing once vehicles are introduced.

Rocket lauchers in dark hallways look fucking amazing

yeah, i think you're right about them getting weeded out. i am loving this game. it's going to be a huge time suck. the unlocks are fun to, i like trying stupid shit like putting the 6x scope on the m416.

anybody got it yet?

got mine for ps3 and currently playing the campaign before going online. sound design is excellent and overall very refreshing compared to COD's run and gun style.

It's awesome, been playing as mostly engineer.....assault is good but I hate not being able to do anything when a tank rolls up.

There's still in-game glitches though. Last night me and my friend found a floor inside a house that if you go prone you go under the floor and can see everyone outside and inside the house but they cant see you too unless they are prone inside the house. I racked up 5 kills in a row this way last night until I got bored haha.

Max, you get a new mic yet?

this fucking game right here is the reason i go home at night now.

as someone that lives to snipe(ghost recon and socom nerd) and will fuck up any assault class by handgun, this game was made for me. The long line of sights on check points even in a subway station and the close quarters handgun fights helped get me my MVP acheivement (get 3 mvp's in mp) on my 4th fucking game.
