Fixing Battlefield: Some Advice For DICE and EA

Dealspwn: "Right off the bat: it's clear that EA accidentally released the wrong trailer. DICE have been teasing images of boats, planes and tanks over the last week, yet subjected us to seventeen minutes of generic brown ground pounding when it came to the crunch. Obviously that was B-roll footage of a narrated developer diary destined for release in a few days' time. The real trailer naturally showed swarms of player-controlled aircraft screaming over enormous battleships, raining fire down onto well-organised squads of infantry battling for territory while tank squadrons rolled through the streets. Someone will probably get fired for that cock-up.

But the second thought was much more exasperating. Why, oh why, is Battlefield still trying to be Call Of Duty?"

I personally don't think Battlefield is trying to be like CoD. Despite any high action moments, I still felt the realism DICE was trying to portray. CoD goes for an over-the-top explosorama.

Take out vehicles, health, and squad play, then I'd believe DICE is trying to be CoD.

That's what I think. The entire focus of Battlefield for me aside from the vehicles and health system, has to be the Class-based warfare as well as the fact you can't go out on your own and try to be Superman. You need backup. You need at least one other dude to have your back at all times to be successful. Call of Duty has yet to duplicate such an experience for me, outside of maybe the co-operative secondary modes.

This is just as tiring as the PC vs Consoles... Yes, I think BF reigns supreme when it comes to MP; but I personally love a great SP campaign also. If the guys at DICE want it, let them without the flak, I'll gladly take it! And quit the COD vs BF comparisons, it needs to die. Why should COD get all the story-glories?

I couldn't stand BF3 campaign more than just couple mission, what a boring generic garbage. I am sure BF4 probably won't be far from that either.

WHAT A STUPID P.O.S ARTICLE... so um, yeah, Battlefield is trying to be CoD with drivable vehicle, destructible environments, BRAND NEW ENGINE, dedicated servers... GTFO with this lame article..

Just consider it a parody/humor and brush it aside and move on. Not really anything to worry about.
