Can Call of Duty Outmatch Battlefield 4?

"As I began watching the Battlefield 4 trailer the first thing that immediately hooked me was the scene when the group of soldiers were sinking underwater in a car, one of the men was stuck under a seat. It was an intense moment, because at any moment they could die if they do not get out of the drowning vehicle." (Battlefield 4, Call of Duty, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

Idk why these two shooters are even compared. Call of Duty games are fast paced, smaller maps, and close quarters. Battlefield games are more tactile, slower paced, and bigger maps.

Tactile? lol

Blame it on autocorrect and a limited time edit button in N4G.

Alright so I used to enjoy COD and I highly suggest you play what you enjoy. That said COD does have a lot of similarities every year, even down to the commercial style. Well BF is slowly moving toward COD standards. I think BF3 might have been the buffer medium. Defiantly a good game but far from my favorite in the series.

The BF4 trailer is announced and it is setup extremely similar to the BF3 trailer. Single player, 10+ minutes long, and just action sequences every where during it to try and make you "oohh" and "ahhh". The graphics look slightly better (hopefully even better on my pc :)) but the artstyle is still extremely similar. Even the "short" version I just saw on a youtube commercial was all of those action sequences edited to Rihanna playing. If that isn't a straight rip from COD commercials then I don't know what is.

I mean I can't really blame them though. They see COD getting all that money every year so why would they go any other route?

Slower paced!? Battlefield USED to be slower paced.

battlefield 3 had pretty much the same pace as COD
Tultras  +   1049d ago
I found that it made a mediocre attempt to copy the pace of the COD series.

I have Bf3 and Mw3/Bo2, but the pace offered in the cod games is much better.

Best pace in a multiplayer game for me personally would be well balanced teams in a game of conquest on Metro

Call of Who?? Haha, Seriously that regergitated game still sells like hotcakes and still breaking sales records, so go figure. The COD camp could stick with the same engine from 2005 and it'll still sell.

*Battlefield is the real deal but, COD sales wise is a BEAST. I don't think Activision will change much. They'll just beef up the graphics keep camping and quick scoping and call it a day

I wouldn't say slower paced I've had some pretty thrilling explosive combat in battlefield 3 that IMO was way better than CODs.

The games are compared because they are in the same genre, their expression has nothing to do with what is compared.

What makes more sense, comparing Uncharted 3 (Action-Adventure) with Gears of War 3 (Action) or Halo 4 (Action) with Gears of War 3 (Action)?

When games evolve in a genre, or take a completely different direction it doesn't mean they are not part of the genre anymore.

Two different types of games. And if you think graphics set aside a game from a win and a lose, you are wrong. Also we do not know if those graphics are official but if they are and the gameplay from COD then I will see
Hufandpuf  +   1049d ago
Activision stated that the demo the showed off were not in-game. So these are not the next COD's graphics.
HammadTheBeast  +   1049d ago
They'd never be. The next CoD graphics may be from the same engine as last year, they're still making money, why not milk it one last time before the next Gen?

Better Graphics
Call of Duty has an ABSOLUTE advantage over Battlefield because it includes every mode that Battlefield has
specialguest  +   1049d ago
Except COD's conquest mode or something similar doesn't compare to BF3's conquest mode. In BF3 you have all sorts of vehicles and airplanes and it feels more like an all out war.

@josephayal So im guessing COD even has Tank superiority, Air superiority and scavenger modes?

well, then you could turn around and say that Battlefield got the same modes that cod have + squad dm, air superiority etc.

Rush says hi. Also, when you get destruction other than windows, and pilot able vehicles, then we'll talk. Till then, just find the most OP class, and keep grinding for useless kill streaks.

I think the next COD will offer more value to cod fans than Battlefield 4 will to Battlefield fans. The cod developers know their fans and with mw3 being the exception, have improved on the series with each new game. Battlefield 3 on the other hand was a step down in the series seeing as it lost commander mode and no mod support.

Still, for me, I have absolutely no faith in EA anymore. DICE might be making it but EA are pulling their strings and imho it will show.

while Battlefield has everything CoD has, close quarters fast paced maps/types (Close Quarter DLC) TDM on Canals and the Railroad Map, you can still have the big battles if you want it... Battlefield is definitely the more COMPLETE franchise.... and that's not even mentioning when they get 60fps @ 720P on console...
GABRIEL1030  +   1049d ago
yes, if COD is only for the next generation. Because the next Battlefield 3.5 Ver.
LordHiggens  +   1049d ago
The answer to that question is an emphatic "no". CoD can not outmatch silly fool.
kB0  +   1049d ago
You can't compare an arcade rambo shooter with a slow paced Squad based shooter.

I'd say CS is more of a comparison to BF than COd is...Cod honestly reminds me more of quake 3 than anything!

1 game you need ADD to really enjoy;)
Triggytrolls  +   1049d ago
I can see why new players to the cod franchise enjoy the game, but people that have been there from the start? I don't get it.

for me COD is like a loaf of bread that you've left out for a couple of months. Stale. If they didn't release one every year things may of been different. At least BF4 has been in development for a couple of years now, and hopefully I will get a couple of years enjoyment out of that one game when it releases.

The thing is, Activison know gamers are getting tired of the game, and no doubt they will reboot the franchise just like they did with COD4. But after that I can see the same thing happening again.

Generally Battlefield has a better design enforcing the teams to work together, but Call of Duty tends to be a little more polished with minimal upgrades with each game. If both games use their current design philosophy I would say the Battlefield franchise will have an upper hand.

To me it makes no sense to be a one person army in team based modes.

I also find there is a lot of unbalanced elements in Call of Duty than in Battlefield. For example if I'm in a tank / plane in Battlefield you can't take it down with an assault rifle unless you aim for the pilot. As appose to Call of Duty, I can take down any vehicle with any assault rifle. What's the point of having vehicle that grumble under guns that have no explosives?

That is not their next gen engine, wake up bro. Its just some pre rendered tech demo. MW4 will look like MW3 with maybe, maybe better textures and lighting thats it.

the question only deserves a one word answer and that word is...NO
