3 Reasons Why We Want Battlefield: Bad Company 3, Not Battlefield 4

Clearly, EA missed the hint after Battlefield 3 launched... we want another Bad Company. (Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Battlefield Bad Company 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Idk about number 2, but I sure loved how open BC2 was, and most of all, the destruction!

Fav. part of the game was setting bobby traps, a squad goes in the building, they hear C4s go off, and it's too late for them to jump ship :D
infamous-butcher  +   1190d ago
That was my biggest disappointment with BF3. Too many buildings are standing at the end of the match.
WildArmed  +   1190d ago
hahaha, yes all thsoe C4s, RPGs, Motors, missiles from jets, tank shells should level the map by it's end.. what a sight that would be :D

In BC2, I remember as we moved up base by base in Rush, you could clearly see the map being leveled inch by inch. Always made me smile.
Peppino7  +   1190d ago
What are the chances they bring back that same level of destruction, or better, for BC3?
Captain Qwark 9  +   1190d ago
agreed. the destruction was so much better when everything could be leveled. it also add a sense of urgency in the rush mode thats lacking in bf3. what i mean by that is....in bc2 the attackers made it a point to try to get the crates asap because if you waited, it got harder and harder because of a lack of cover.

in bf3 the battlefield barely changes. just not as good imo

Harvest Day felt like a real battle, watching things blow up from the starting point on that map and tanks busting through the field was awesome.

I want Bad Company 3 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of the two BC1 was more alot open in the campaign. I wish they would return to BC1 formula. They would present you with this huge map and mark an objective. You could freely roam around the map and attack the objective how you pleased. BC2 was alot more linear. It was setpiece to setpiece hopping in BC2. If you haven't tried out BC1 singleplayer I highly recommend it. You could probably get it for like $5 used.

Yeah, BC1 was a lot more open... but BC2 was still more free-roam than most shooters on the market. And I liked the story to 2 better. Both are exceptional games, though.
madpuppy  +   1189d ago
I loved the campaign in BC1, Dice made the mistake of listening to reviewers and making the characters more serious, Haggard was GREAT in BC1 and he turned into a bitter, angry A-hole in BC2. I would love a BC3 with more of the great stuff from BC1 and the latest Frostbite engine. Plus, I want Haggard to screw with Sweetwater and hear about how truckasaurus rex might be able to go up against a Russian tank! or Haggard dating his cousin.
good stuff....

"Fav. part of the game was setting booby traps..."

So that was you all along? O_o

I can kinda understand #2 b/c they were characters with character and not weighed down by the need for incessant cursing as their only character development. The writers have a chance with Bad Co. 3 to make fun of its own storyline too.
WildArmed  +   1189d ago
hehehe can't say it was perfect.. sometimes I caused more TKs than actually kills :)

But I tried and it was fun, so that's what counts.. right? ><
Trunkz Jr  +   1189d ago
If Battlefield 4 is BC3 just renamed I'd be happy with that, just don't promise us full clan support and possible mod tools in the future.
DeadlyFire  +   1189d ago
I am thinking Dice/EA saw the F-up in BF3 and said wait a minute we will fix that. BF 4 appears on the radar.
napoleon1066  +   1190d ago
Hated the single player for Battlefield 3. It was terrible... I would certainly love a return to the Bad Company style.
iamnsuperman  +   1190d ago
I welcome a Bad Company game. I thought the second BC's story was less stupid and funny but it still was funny and that is what I liked about the series. I feel they shouldn't bury this franchise and they are in danger of doing so by releasing BF4. It has been a while since BC2.

BC 1 and 2 got the single player right with its insane level of destruction and quality story with characters I liked and they had some sort of personality not like we saw in the BF3 single player.

How is Battlefield bad company 2? If it is good then I'll buy it
Sobaer  +   1190d ago
You should go buy it. Fantastic campaign, stellar multiplayer, some of the best shooter maps designed.
MattyG  +   1190d ago
It's a really fun game. Less "realistic" than BF3, but all the more fun for it.
napoleon1066  +   1190d ago
Recommend it highly. Great single player, fantastic multiplayer. Vietnam and co-op expansions are great too.
Moby-Royale  +   1190d ago
To me it's, hands down, the most fun I have ever had online. You can get it for around 12 bucks new(I can't remember if it has a pass so get new).

Big, fun maps, varying environments, real destruction(I'm talking about leveling a three story building with enemies still inside), real vehicles, great hit-detection, ect ect.

Now, at least on PS3, at least on hardcore mode, sometimes it takes a bit to find a full match.

Just back out and try again. It never takes long.
SillyBastid  +   1190d ago
yes, needs an online pass... i foolishly bought it used.

multiplayer is incredible, and vietnam expansion feels like an entirely new game.

it is very tough to find good full matches on vietnam anymore though
sak500  +   1190d ago
Agreed, i finished BC BC2 both on highest difficulty but still haven't finished BF3's single player even once. Somehow BF series just makes me think MP only from the 1000s of hours spent on MP of 1942/Vietnam/BF2/ BF2142. SP doen't feel right in BF series.
Sobaer  +   1190d ago
Bad Company 1/2 are the only exceptions to that rule, but I agree, single player doesn't seem right. If they are going to throw it into the package, they as well make us happy and give us something worth playing though, a la BC2.
CaptCalvin  +   1189d ago
They shoulda just brought back offline bot practice in place of the horrible campaign.

My three reasons, Sarge, Haggs and and Sweets.
BabyTownFrolics  +   1190d ago
just combine the two, bad company3 for single player, BF4 for multiplayer, and just reboot the series and call it Battlefield: Poon Stank
BelieveinGhosts  +   1190d ago
BC 2 was better than BF3 if you ask me. It was just so damn fun. I used to snipe fools without having to worry about a bright light attracting unwanted attention. Dont call me a wookie, i was just a 'Stealth Sniper'
Rhezin  +   1190d ago
People want Bad Company 3! Bad company 2 was my first Battlefield game, so I thought Battlefield 3 was the sequel and I bought it. Really different game, I enjoyed it for awhile but it just wasn't the same.
SpecialK  +   1190d ago
I just want the fully destructible maps back. The best thing about choppers in BC2 was the ability to get a friend in the gun turret with mics and just blow apart buildings containing the other team, or driving a tank straight through a wall.

I dont get the reason for it being taken away, even with full on carnage there was always still places to take cover it was pretty rare that all buildings were destroyed.

I want to be able to use grenade launchers to blow away stair campers from the outside, what a way to let new players realize that this was no COD, camping doesnt work here =D
Psychotica  +   1190d ago
Personally I wouldn't care if they didn't include a story at all. I rather see offline multiplayer vs bots and the normal online multiplayer.
pandehz  +   1190d ago
I agree with the last two points. I dont mind linearity.

Yea the story in BF3 was such a yawnfest. It was just events to show of the graphics and vehicles etc.

Such as Jet mission to show it off, tank mission, night mission to show night lighting n firefight bla blah. Theres barely any proper story. Its like they picked 10 chits and made it based on whatever came up. The characters were so boring I dont remember anyone and I can easily forget about whatever happened 2 days after playing it.

Oh yea the nuke thingy was sooo original.

Besides all that the MP is the best evah. Play it everyday.

Ageed, i actually like BFBC2 more than BF3.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1190d ago
As long as they give it a good story, I'm in. I loved the campaign of BC1, but BC2 was just a bad Modern Warfare clone.
jjb1981  +   1190d ago
Bc2 on hardcore mode was the most multiplayer fun I've had on Ps3. You had to rely on hearing footsteps and watching bushes rustle. You had to listen to which side the bullets were coming from. I spent many many hours in that game and haven't found any other shooter come close.
BelieveinGhosts  +   1187d ago
exactly, Bf:BC 2 didnt hold your hand. In BF3, i had to constantly worry about my sniper scope giving my position away.
snowman2149  +   1190d ago
Dice and EA are fools. We dont even want BF4 so soon, we're not even anticipating it! Thats why you needed to do Bad Company 3 first, because its been a long time since BC2 and people wanna know what happens next! *sigh*
Straightupbeastly  +   1189d ago
Battlefirld 3 is bad company 3. Does it really take a genius to figure that out?
Burnin  +   1189d ago
uhhhh no. What are you talking about? they are different games... Have you even played either games?

Now it doesn't take a genius to figure THAT out
kingduqc  +   1189d ago
I want battlefield 2143
Dougz_G  +   1189d ago
BC2 destruction was a gimmick the same animation every time, so boring. Red Faction Guerilla however had Random destruction every time, I'd love to see that in a battlefield game!
ExCest  +   1189d ago
But it was a fun gimmick.
gaminoz  +   1189d ago
Totally want BC: 3 not BF 4!!!
